Thought i would share my first two wolves with the strifers.
You would not belive hoe easy they are to paint.
Let me know wot you think the bases would look best in, Im thinking dark rock with a hint of snow.

Yellow snow?

They look really good Jimster and I think you are right and a darker rocky base would be best. I take you you just washed (new washes) black over grey? You might want to tidy up a couple of places where the wash left a "tide" mark (knee caps for example on the one on the right. It depends on the look you want though, right now they look battle-worn and if that's what you are after, leave 'em as they are.

I'll say it before anyone else does.... drill out the gun barrels!

Good point, missed that one.
As far as the tide mark goes I might go back and add scorche marks if time allows.
Ta for the feed back matt.

There's always one :P LOL


They aren't half bad all the same, though now you've set yourself a benchmark, "we" will expect Golden Demon standard by the end of this week!
