I have just finished putting together the first five minis of my new Grey Hunter pack, the second of three I intend to build up before I stop once and for all with GW army building. The reason simply is that GW have pushed me out of 40K gaming & army building with the last price hike the year before. I have enough models to finish my Space Wolf army, then I will only concentrate on dioramas with respect to GW products.
On the bright side this has given me the inclination to look up other game systems. In fact I have landed my sights on Dystopian Wars. I intended to build a flying force from the Covenant of Antartica faction. More on this at a later date.
In the meantime here are the first five Grey Hunters from the second unit.
As you can see one is already painted. This was a test paint-up to see if the colours match up with existing models in my force. Since it's been a while since I have painted any Space Wolves (in fact it has been a while since I have done anything hobby related), and I wanted to get it right.
I also wanted to differentiated the 2nd pack from the first, so I added differnt trophies to them. As you can see I gave the Plasma gunner a combat knife on the shoulder pad, ans I added a wolf skull and a different type of fur cloak.
I also thought of adding a horn blower to the pack, besides a banner (it will be with the next post). I think it gives the pack a nice touch. Well that's all for know. Later on next week I will post the other five and get on painting my Long Fangs that have been sitting in my 'To Do' box for the past six months.
Farewell and good health,
