Plastic Thunderwolf Conversions Comin' Up!

Plastic Tunderwolf conversions here we come! Photos of the new plastic Blood Crushers (juggernaughts) are online and they'd make perfect plastic Tunderwolf conversions.

Some clever Spaniard came up with this Thunderwolf cavalry conversion shortly after the release of the Space Wolves Codex.

You can see how he's removed some of the detail and applied green stuff to get a 'wolf wearting heavy armour' look.

I wanted to do this, but kept putting it off due to cost and time. But now the plastic Blood Crushers are here, this conversion just become a whole lot easier and cheaper!

As you can see, these are all plastic with plenty of poseable parts and a choice of different heads.

Best of all, these are going to be sold in packs of 3 for £27.50, which is just as well when Canis Wolfborn costs £27.50 on his own!

I'll be getting 3 Blood Crusher boxes. That gives me 3 for my Wolf Lord combinations, 5 for a single Thunderwolf Cavalary unit and 1 for a Canis Wolfborn conversion.

Stay tuned for a release date and a plastic Thunderwolf conversions tutorial!

I'm guessing they will be released with this new wave of demons for WH/40k. I believe it was to happen in August?

I've seen my share of thunderwolf coversions using juggers, but they really didn't fit. Just rounding the head, and filing the symbols off, doesn't count.

If they greenstuffed the hooves to claws, and drapped on some fur, I wouldn't mind so much.
