The Wolf King, Painted!

Fans of the blog know I’m not an avid painter. I don’t think I’m bad at it, I’m just always wishy-washy about starting… because I’m afraid I’ll mess it up.

When we last left the Wolf King (3 years ago), he was scratch-built but unpainted. I am happy to say he has now been painted.

After laying down a base layer, I took a picture (to remind myself that these paint jobs look terrible at first):

Yuck. That’s just awful.

From there, the work improved. I was going to try and paint him (and my other Space Wolf-wannabes) in white armor, but… I do not like the way that looks, it turns out. So, the Wolf King ended up more of a gray color. Voila!

The Black Legion Chaos Terminator Lord that lies cut in half at his feet also came out pretty nice!

And here’s where his power fist ended up…

It’s amazing the Wolf King didn’t get any of that blood on his armor, huh?

I sculpted a lot of things by hand, like his hair, bear, and some the fur at his shoulders, waist, and leg. Unfortunately, I think you can easily tell…

All in all, I’m happy with how it turned out, despite some of the sculpting things I don’t like. But, considering how many times I reworked this figure, I guess it’s pretty darn good. I don’t like it as much as my Terminator Chaplain paint job, but it’s still good.
