Thunderwolf Cavalry almost painted
Here are the trio of Thunderwolf Cavalry I've completed so far. Well, completed is a strong word. They are playable, if not finished. I'm still working on the reds, and the power armor hasn't received a final highlight, and there are any number of small details (wolf teeth, stone trinkets, pouches) that need some loving care.
I went for a bit of a spread in terms of equipment for my first three Thunderwolf Cavalry. A Thunder Hammer, a Storm Shield, and a "stock" option. They performed well in their inagural proxy game, but I am eager to give them a bit more table time now that they're graduated from plastic puppies glued to bases to finished models. I have two more dire wolves that I can green stuff into semi-acceptable Thunderwolves. Unfortunately I'm rather short on appropriately sized bases for now!
I've been painting sleek Elven myrmidons, and painting a few space marines is a pleasant diversion. The blends are difficult.
