I had an epic version of this post typed out, and my son hit reset on my PC before i could submit it sad.gif

Including my SW's, i currently have 3 40k armies on the go. My first real army was Daemon Hunters, which im currently redoing. Im also working on a Raven Guard army. Im a bit of a fluff addict, and a problem i had was making my RG competitive, while still being fluffy. This is hard to do and include tanks. So to that end, i intended leaving my RG for Apoc, and making a tough as nails SW list.

One of the things that drew me to Bran Redmaw (apart from the name similarity) is the high use of Wulfen and Grey Hunters. That allows a very 13th company feel, without having to sacrifice tanks etc.

Ive been interested in doing a SW army for around 16 years. I planned to make a 13th company when the Eye of Terror codex came out, but ended up meeting a woman, and the rest is history tongue.gif

Im still waiting for my codex, so i wont even attempt an army list, but to start with here is a few pics of what i have so far:

Blood Claws on the left, Grey Hunters on the right. Both need to be finished painted. I may steal the Blood claws though and turn them into regular assault troops for my RG.
IPB Image

Guy on the left is the 2003 Games Day rune priest. Guy in the middle the current twin claw model, and the guy on the right is an old long fang, for a project down below...
IPB Image

Leman Russ! Been saving this for years with the plans to convert it to a SW tank. Im still unsure whether i cant to do that (as in Apoc it wont matter how its painted) or to repaint it for my new DH army. Thoughts?
IPB Image

2 dakka Pred's (have a third one in the shed getting its paint stripped) and a whirlwind. If i dont add the whirly to my SW's, it will go back to my RG to be included in a suppression force formation.
IPB Image

3 Land Speeders. Same as the whirlwind, i may use these in my SW army, if not, they will go back to my RG.
IPB Image

A long time ago i helped Ardog make some 4 wheel bikes as rough riders, and i have some left over bikes(withought wheels tongue.gif). I got some extra chimera track, and plan to convert the bikes to have skido type tracks.
IPB Image

Remeber the Grey Hunter? He's going to be mounted into the top of my Terminus Ultra, right next to a SW version of Chronus. Ive already started converting this up as you can see.
IPB Image
IPB Image

Thats it for now, i need to pick something and start working on it! (most likely the bikes or TULR)

the russ cant be used by space wolves, so id add it to your inquisitorial army.

i would like to see a close up or 2 of some of your greyhunters/ bloodclaws.

its going to get really fun with our diaries with the exact same name, i just looked at the main painting board and saw on the diary section our thread title, i got excited thinking someone posted in my thread.

Yeah thats why i added the line to mine, but there's no other way really, although i might try a re-edit. :/

the troops are just basecoated, but when they get a decent amount of paint on them i'll be sure to post them wink.gif

And i know Russ's cant currently be used, but i was wondering if it was worth doing it for fluffs sake, kinda like this baneblade: IPB Image

Was out most of the weekend, so didnt get to much done.

I couldnt get the tracked bikes to work as well as i wanted, but it worked out as having 'chain wheels'.

IPB Image

I also filled in the top and sides on the LR, and made the new area for my Chronus figure. I started adding some pipping and other decorative stuff.

IPB Image
IPB Image

I want to fill the new area on top with skulls, any suggestions as to where to get them?

I started making new ones to finish up the squad, and almost gave up in frustration. I just could not get them to stay in place long enough for the glue to set.

By chance, i found my old tube of glue, and discovered i had used a glue 'gel' to make the original. Once i got some more of that type of glue, i was able to finish up the bikes i have armata_PDT_36.gif

It has been far too long between updates, but Christmas, family health and a rapidly dwindling bank account have hampered the army. With the amount of friendly game offers on the rise though, i need to pull my finger out and atleast get a starter force done!

With 1200 points chosen as our 'club standard', i posted up a list here to get some feedback before i set about making purchases.

From this, i know i need the following:

Wolf Priest
5 Blood Claws (one with a flamer)
23 Grey Hunters (2 melta gunners)
5 Scouts (one melta-gun)
3 Wolf Guard with combi-melta's
2 Wolf Guard with combi-melta's and powerfists
Wolf Guard in Termi armour with Cyclone missile launcher
Wolf Guard on Bike
3 Swift Claw Bikers
Swift Claw Attack Bike with Multi Melta
6 Long Fangs (5 Missile Launchers, one leader)
2 Rhino's
2 Razorbacks (one with TL las-cannon, one with las-cannon and twin linked plasma)

When i started this diary, i intended to work out a list, sort out what i had and could use, then just go out and buy everything to fill the gaps. Unfortunately (or fortunately lol) my wife and i have decided to try and pay off some debts before we have another baby, so this really limits my wardolls budget.

To that end, i have raided all my armies, bits boxes, friends bits boxes, added things to my present lists, traded and begged and kept my eye's pealed for bargins to snag. I have managed to score almost everything so far, and when im done i think the 1200 lists above will have been put together for less than $100 in new purchases!

Having said that, there is a decent amount of converting/fixing i need to do before every looks like it should, but its defiantly going to keep me busy!

I scored a couple boxes of the new wolves packs for Christmas, and have been using these to update all the old miniatures. Basically, when mixing old and new stuff to make it go further, my general rule was this:
  1. If the model was holding a bolter to its chest, i used a standard marine chest
  2. If i used a standard marine chest, then it got new Space Wolf legs/shoulder pads/back pack
  3. If the model had bolter/bolt pistol and CC weapon, i used a Space Wolf chest, but standard marine legs.

So here's some progress of the army so far:

Only 2 Blood Claws i have done at this stage:
IPB Image

5 Grey Hunters:
IPB Image

4 Grey Hunters and a Wolf Guard with Combi Melta:
IPB Image

My Long Fangs. I used 2 AoBR models in this squad. I added the wolf tail head and a wold tail to the ML of the missle guys. I used an AoBR Termie, adding a Wolf Pelt from a chaos marauder box, a wolf tail, the wolf skill to the top of the storm bolter. I then also chopped the sword off, and replaced it with the sword hand from the Space Wolf Box. Both conversions were simple and effective i think smile.gif
IPB Image

The scouts. I have a few of the old scouts, but i really didnt like the look of thier heads or weapons. Some side cutter/dremel work, and some bits from the space wolf sprue's, and i think they actually look better than the new plastic scouts.
IPB Image

And last for right now, is my Bran Redmaw. While not in the first 1200 points, i couldnt help making him tongue.gif

Small update smile.gif

I picked up my latest Forge World order this arvo, which included this beauty:
IPB Image

Plasma cannon and CC arm, I will use him as Bjorn in some games.

I also finished converting up my Swift Claw attack bike. I was trying ot create a model that felt right for a Blood Claw, like he was about to leap into a fight the second the bike stopped moving. As im also using snow to base my marines, i created a sled, which fitted the look i was after perfectly.
IPB Image

Theres a few things to fix up and some little bits to add, but its basically done.

Mate this army is looking great! I say go with the Leman Russ idea, but maybe just use it in Apoc games and convert it into an exterminator, I think it was in a n old Space Wolves Codex many years ago....can't remember. My Mammoth tank will only be used in Apoc game so why the hell not, makes it interesting. Top work and can't wait to see more.

Quick question, did your dread actually come with feet apart from those on the base and you have just left them out for the photo?

I am very keen to order mine, just need some more funding since i am buying so many arms -.-

Yep comes with the extra feet. I was pretty happy with that, as it looks like the new GW Ven Dread has normal feet.

So spending the extra 5 pound on the scenic base gives you an extra set of ven dread feet, which i'll use on the GW one smile.gif

Also as an interesting note, getting a FW ven dread, 2 arms and a scenic base is cheaper than the GW price of their Dread.

So if you willing to 'lose' 2 arms, you get a far better looking dread wink.gif
