I mentioned above being impressed by thunder hammers. This was not the first time that this has happened, and at one point roughly 10 years ago, I purchased an upgrade blister pack that contained five thunder hammers, stormshields, and Terminus Crux shoulder pads. They were some of the worst mold-line and flash infested metal miniatures I have ever bought from GW. And for whatever reason, I simply never moved on with the project. Until Now. Joshi Krakenbite will be the first bearer of a thunder hammer for the Wolf Guard of Sven Axegrinder.

Recently while looking at all of the previous covers for the years worth of Codex: Space Wolf tomes, it struck me that the original one from 1993 (2nd Edition) is the only one with accurate colors on the armor. For the most part anyway. It is weird as the models pictured inside it were not all this dark, yet the ones in the current (2018) codex are, even though that book's cover depicts a Space Wolf painted in a non-Shadow Grey look. It is just a strange observation. But back to the '93 edition: I have always loved this cover. The model from that time has the exact heavy flamer, and sort of like I did for a recently inspired Goff ork I am going to attempt to paint that heavy flamer just like that!

This guy is almost done, and I shall continue to work on him, and his brothers, before Dreadtober-2018 begins. So far I am really enjoying this trip back to Fenris...
