I've been home recovering from a brief hospital stay and I was able to get some work done on my Wolves. I actually finished assembling my Long Fangs Pack and my Swift Claws Biker Pack. I equipped the Biker Pack with a melta gun, but couldn't get the damn thing to fit right in the hand of the rider, so I decided to 'mag lock' it to the right side of the bike next to the front tile. Kinda like a quick draw thing.

Any way, all I've got left to do is build the Predator and I can make some time to at least get a game in. I do have a Wolf Priest to convert, but I can use Ulrik as a proxy for now.

My Apologies

My apologies, dear followers, for my absence. It seems that sometimes real life can indeed become a hassle. Which is why I've been away for so long. But...I have vowed to live life better and MAKE time to do some of the little things that I enjoy. Namely, modeling, painting and gaming. So that said, I have pulled my Space Wolves out and dusted them off and am ready to get back to it. So stay tuned - there's more to come.

I got to check out the new Wolfman movie this weekend. Being a fan of the original 1941 Lon Chaney, Jr. classic, I was anxious to see what a 21st Century facelift would look like on this old classic. I have to say that I was not disappointed. The gothic horror, 19th Century english feel was awesome. The mist-shrouded country side, the full moon periodically obscured by cloud banks and the cobblestone streets really looked great.

The main characters from the original were in this version as well. Though the story varied a bit, I thought it flowed well. While popular opinion stated that it was too gorey, I have to disagree. Were there eviscerations? Yes. Were there decapitations? You betcha. Were there blood spatters? Oh yeah. But I've seen way worse and I believe the gore was necessary to illustrate the savagery of the beast unleashed.

Again, it was a great movie and I can't wait to see it again.

Grey Hunter - Test Model

Before people start thinking that I'm not really building a Space Wolf army, I had to sit down and finish painting a model. I decided to stay away from the Blue-Grey power armor. Not so much because I don't like the way it looks, but I don't think that I can do the models justice. Historically, I'm really bad with light colors, so I went with the darker shade.
Sorry about the lousy images, as you can see I'm not much of photographer either.

Anyway, here's a completed test model. I'm leaning toward Bjorn Stormwolf's Great Company, just to be different. So, you'll probably see the 'stalking wolf' badge on the left shoulder.

Beastmen - 1,000 point list

I haven't played Warhammer Fantasy in quite some time, but I am going to try and give it another go with the new Beastmen. As I am focusing most of my attention on my Space Wolves, I'm going to keep this project small at only 1k. Here's what I'm going to start with:

Wargor - hvy armour, Axes of Khorgor

Bray-Shaman - level 2, hand weapon, 2 Dispel Scrolls

20 Gors - shields, hand weapons, full cmd

5 Ungor Raiders x2 - hand weapons, shortbows

5 Chaos Warhounds x2 - scaly skin

10 Bestigors - hvy armour, great weapons, full cmd

3 Minotaurs - Bloodkine (champion), light armour, hand weapons

1 Chaos Spawn

994 points

I picked up a box of Ungors and the Beast Lord with two hand weapons, which I will use as my Wargor. I grabbed the Ungors first, because it was the least expensive way to get started AND get two units in the list built. Before I drop any more cash, I need to check and see if I have any of the hounds or spawn laying around my basement.

Comics - Mighty Thor

As with most Space Wolf players, I have grown increasingly interested in Norse mythology. I have begun conducting some research on some of the viking legends (sagas). The viking mythology is filled with mighty heroes, gods, giants, dragons, and monsters of every kind. As a child I poured over comic books (sometimes I still do) and one of my favorites was always the Mighty Thor, the Asgardian God of Thunder.

So I figured would be a fun way to start researching, so I picked up this Graphic Novel. Hopefully I'll find some great background stuff for my Space Wolves.
Meanwhile, on the hobby front, the work continues apace and the painting has started. I'm working on painting my first Grey Hunter. I've got two Grey Hunter Packs, one Blood Claw Pack, a unit of Wolf Guard terminators, a Rune Priest and Ulrik the Slayer all built. I just need to get the Predator and Long Fangs together and then I'll think about maybe getting a game or two in, just to see how they play.
