Space Wolves Vindicator

Hey, I know, right? WTF is a Space Wolf player using a Vindicator for? MOAR LONG FANGS!

I find that they do a pretty good job of dealing out death in my games, and serving as a powerful threat on the board. Apologies for the smudgy finger in the corner of the first pic. He wandered into the shot as I was taking it. What an inconsiderate fellow.

Thanks for reading,

Armorcast Warhound, Part 4

Detailing the Warhound

I had a few hours spread over the last week to work on the Warhound. I am working to add some detail to the fig. Some iconography, some battle damage, a few more rivets, etc.

Legio Astorum heraldry, and some added rivets
A Mechanicum skull I sculpted for shits and giggles
I don't know about the skull. I thought it would be cool to have some Adeptus Mechanicus heraldry to go with the Legio heraldry on the other side. Is it too big?

rivets and heraldry
I cut a bunch of rivets from thin styrene rod, glued them onto the leg, and then hit them with a file to get them to an even size after the glue had fully cured.

The Legio Astorum nova is hopefully going to look much nicer once it has paint on it.

The honor tabard
This unassuming piece of green stuff is the rough form for the honor tabard that will hang down between the Warhounds legs. Its so that people who are about to be stepped on know exactly who they are being stepped on by! It makes the insurance claim process way faster.

I have a long way to go on this one. There are a number of folds that I need to sculpt onto this relatively blank slate. First I will hit it with a really fine grit sandpaper and some water, to get the surface all smooth.
