Swiftclaw Attack Bike - Part 2 Modeling Finished

Hi everyone,

Finally I have finished the modelling of the Swiftclaw Attack Bike, and I can move on to modelling the Dreadnought.  I have to say that I enjoyed modelling this project.  I forgot how rewarding it is to model armies like my Space Wolves.  Mainly because they are gaming pieces and I don't have to bother with getting the details perfect.  I just have to give the impression of them being right.
Below I have a selection of photos for anyone who wants to take a better look at the work.  The first pictures show the details like the straps on the knives, the Tyranid ribcage, the wolf skull on the head-lights and the wolf tooth necklace I added.


The next set of photos give a better view of the driver and gunner.  The heads are from the Dark Angel's Raven Wing box set, which I wolfy-upped a bit.  If you have not seen my other Swiftclaws or Blood Claws, then you should know that I like to give them what I call a Rune of Acceptance.  This is the rune on their right shoulder pad that every Blood Claw strives to have removed by ascending to the ranks of the Grey Hunters - well at least in my mind that is how it works!





The last set of pictures brings the bike and riders together.  One last point I would like to make is that I know that the kit does not come with a base, but I did not like the discrepancy in height created without one when placed near the other bikers.  So I figured out a workable/game playable size to place it on.


That is it for today.  As usual I will be back next week with more stuff.  I am quite confidant it will be more Space Wolf related work - but who knows what can happen in a week's time.  The last model in my small force that still needs to be worked on is the Dreadnaught.  After that I will start painting the elements of my force that are still unpainted.  Then I will move on to new units like Lone Wolves, Wolf Guard Terminators and Wolf Guard in standard armour, as well as Scouts and Fenrisian Wolves.

Until then farewell and good health,
