Wolf Priests Finished!

So, some more progress. Today I have my two Wolf Priests. Its funny, but the one I wasn't expecting to look good, I really like, and unfortunetly the one I expected to look hawt, didn't turn out that way. As you can see, I wen't back and painted them black. It really wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, and I think they look better now.

Here they are together. I was really lucky to pick the old 2003 (I think it was 2003) Games Day Wolf Priest off of eBay for pretty cheap. The only problem is that the right hand looked pretty bad on the model. Very blobby.

Here is my Ulrik the Slayer. Now I don't know what my problem was, but I just couldn't get the Wolf Skull helm to look the way I wanted it to. I started with bone, but it didn't look good. Then I tried silver, and it looked "blah." Lastly, I gave bone another try, and I got it to look decent, but not where I really want it.

See, In my opinion, the wolf skull on the shoulder looks pretty good, and being so close to the helm, it seems to make the helm look even worse.

Here is the a back view. Origonally, I got a wild hair up my butt and decided to make my own skull exaust vents for the back pack. I think they came out pretty well. The only problem is that I think it would look better on a "vanilla" marine chaplain. Oh well. I put a lot of work into it, so it is going on one of my Space Wolves.

Last, for this guy, Is a close-up of his crozius. I really like the effect here (which is difficult to see in this pic). What I've done it started it with Astronomican Grey and then layered Skull White over that. When I'm done I then hit it with Asurmen Blue wash.

Next up is the jump pack Priest. This is the 2003 model. The only thing I've done is slap a Jump Pack on him, and I gotta say I like it.

Back view so you can see the Death Company jump pack. I made a mistake and order them instead of "plain" jump packs. It turned out fine, as these ones have some nice little details, and after a bit of filing, and a bit of green stuffing, you can't tell they were Blood Angels.

A view of the JP WP crozius. It is painted the same way as the other one, I just changed up the metal colors, and made the wolf skull bone colored.

Lastly, a close-up of the crotch of this Wolf Priest. One of the things I like about this guy is that he has the little vials that most apothecaries have. Seeing as Wolf Priests are a cross between a Chaplain and an Apothecary, I think it is fitting.

  1. They both look really good, and I'd have to agree with you that they look better in black than in blue.

    For Ulrik's helmet, perhaps try applying a little extra wash (probably mud), to the recesses to give more contrast to the highlights, that will probably help get it to look more like the one on his shoulder.
