I'm so jealous. I want a reason for wolf rats in my skaven army so bad. Were they fun to paint? You've really made them look dirty. It's a nice effect.
Since I was going for quick 'n dirty, I basically drybrushed the entire model in progressively lightening shades of gray. I picked out the leather with a light coat of brown, and since it was already shaded from the gray drybrushing, the highlighting was already there. I picked out the bandages with some off-white and then did some gooey reddish black splotches all over 'em. (I figured anyone willing to bandage up a bunch of ravenous wolf rats only wanted 'em to live long enough to fight a battle and wouldn't do a great job of it!) The whole thing was pretty fun, but then, I'm a drybrushing addict. The level of detail on the forgeworld stuff is amazing.

My own take on dire wolves - green theme and the same colour as all my zombies ;)



And some closeups

I like those a great deal. They have a powerful feeling of decay, of something that's been mouldering in the ground for a long time. Perhaps underwater?

Can almost hear the squish and drip as they move...

They're really nice, I wish I'd thought of a scheme along those lines when I was painting my wolves!

Hello!

I finally have pictures of some of the models I have painted for my VC army. I have been wanting to post model pictures on this forum since I found it, so this is super exciting for me xD.

Below is a Photobucket link to a bunch of pictures of my dire and doom wolves. I tried out some orange/red/yellow layered fire effects on the mane of one, then blue fire effects on another, followed by purple, and pretty soon it turned into TEAM RAINBOW WOLF! xD

first post in a LONG LONG time, but I updated 5 wolves in anticipation of finally getting to try out AOS(super excited). so I had them painted on those square bases(that I hated.) and I thought this would be a great chance to update them into a cool kind of gruesome base scheme so without further ado.
