|Current WIP level.|
This is the rather rare limited edition Wolf Priest model released in 2002. I believe he was a Games Day promo model. He was only released in metal. It took me ages to find this miniature at a sane price, and two years ago I did. But I have only recently got around to painting him.
Here he is primed black with a base coat on his base.
And here he is with most of his base coats:
|Mostly base coated.|
And here he is, in his base coated state, leading his Space Wolves to victory! Well, at this stage he is directing more than leading, but a leader never-the-less!
|"Don't blame me, it's 8th edition!"|
And here he is once again, truly leading now by making the decisive shot of the game that killed the enemy Farseer/Courier. Not too shabby for a first game, and being only base coated!
|"This is how we Kill xenos boys..."|
|Brown base coats and a bit of blue.|
I kind of went back and forth in these early stages of trying to decide how to paint his various wolf skulls. At one point I was just going to make them a metallic gold, but with so much stuff on this guy already picked out to be that color, I decided some contrast was necessary.
|Brown base coats applied!|
So I followed the examples I have seen of this model online and went with making the winged skulls a bone color.
|"I've gotta bone ta pick with youse."|
And this is as far as I have gotten on this guy so far. He is a far trickier miniature to paint than one would think, as I keep realizing more details as I progress. But so far I am pleased.
