In my third game at the Battle Of The Chumps, I was drawn against James McGlough who was working on a stunning 13th Company Space Wolves force complete with dramatic poses, ferocious conversions and even a Wolf Lord riding a Chaos Knight horse!
So I took some snaps and chatted to James about his army.
As someone who liked the Space Wolves playing style, but loved the look of a rag tag Chaos Marines army, the Space Wolves 13th company was the perfect blend of both.
James' paint scheme was relatively quick and easy, comprising of an Adeptus Battle Grey basecoat, Macherite Red red bits, Boltgun Metal silver boots, Dwarf Bronze gold bits and a Badab Black wash. Then he'd quickly paint highlights in a lighter grey. Job done!
All of his conversions were a simple blend of Chaos Marines and Space Wolves with his Grey Hunters all holding bolt guns and close combat weapons.
To keep things quick, he'd also neglected to paint all the Space Wolf trims and details in gold or silver, keeping them grey with a highlight instead.
Even though he'd only been base coated, I was particularly fond of his Wolf Lord riding a Thunderwolf (thunderhorse).
The photo I've taken really doesn't do his conversion justice and it's amazing just how good a Space Wolf terminator looks riding a Chaos Knight horse.
As the Space Wolves gallery was still up at Warhammer World, I took some snaps during my lunch break and spotted a Bulveye 'axeman of Russ' conversion leading the studio Space Wolf 13th Company army.
You can clearly see Space Wolf termminator legs, power armour torso, Blood Angel arms and wrist mounted pistol as well as a standard Space Marine bare head (with green stuff beard) and Space Wolves frost axe.
I'm tempted to try something similar for the plastic Ragnar Blackmane conversion I've been planning for months.
Stay tuned for this week's battle report as my Space Wolves take on James' 13th Company Space Wolves in a 1500 points game. -It's gonna be bloody!
