Must have Unit

Hands down, Terminators! Ever since 1st edition of Space Hulk came out, I have been in love with the marines in Tactical Dreadnought armor. The very thought of these walking tanks in deep space gunning down aliens really appealed to me. And it just so happened that I was concurrently obsessed with everything to do with "Alien" (the first two movies, toys, comics, you name it) at the time. Needless to say, I like to include terminators in my army lists, even though they do not always perform as well as I would like. Below is a gallery of some of my models from the newest to the very early ones.

Space Wolf: Lone Wolf. I converted his wolf claw into a chainfist. using a chainsword with the teeth cut off on one side.

Some work in progress Space Wolves (Arjac in the middle).

Chaos Space Marine: Sorcerer of Chaos (HQ). Pink Terminator!!!! I think it is paticularly demeaning to my loyalist buddy when he faces these candy coated termies.

Though not technically terminators, more like terminators x10. Which is how much I love them....

Space Knights: This is my made up chapter (he's not quite finished) Gotta love the Black Reach set.

More Pink termies (unfinished)!!! I really like the pose of this guy. we need more plastic chaos lightning claws!

Opening the vaults now.....

Ok, this guy isn't supposed to be pink. My early attempt at blending red (came out kinda pink) Supposed to be a Blood angel.

More early paint jobs. These guys are gonna get the Dawn Paint remover treatment soon, and be converted to Space wolves.

My first Terminator.

Today is a good day to die!

Lone wolf ready to seek a glorious death! 

They did not make storm shields for right hands! Took a bit of chopping and swapping.

My Warhammer Tattoos

Got a fresh hair-do, so I thought I would show off my Warhammer tattoos. I see a Space Wolves tattoo in the future.

My first painted Space wolf

Here is the color scheme and painting technique I'll be using for my space wolf army. Soon I'll post a step by step and list the colors I used.

Simple Mark of the Wulfen conversion

I wanted to convey the part about using "claws and teeth in close combat" specifically claws. I found a perfect claw from the old space hulk, plastic genestealers models. With the expansions, I have a ton of these old genestealers still on the sprue. Converting the model was a simple mater of cutting the Space Wolf hand off, and replacing with the genestealer hand. the genestealer hand just needed to be trimmed up a bit around the wrist. I love the pose of the outstretched fingers ready to "render" some flesh.

All Hail the Sky Warriors!

Time to sound off with a: "I got my space wolves stuff!!!!!". Yep, that's right. Been looking forward to this. I'm currently soaking in the Codex and all it's glory. It is wondrous. I don't have a whole lot of stuff, but I did manage to scrape up enough cash for a wolf pack box. I picked up a rune priest the other day and started painting it.  (pics coming soon, my camera broke), trying to formulate my color palette, and thinking about the plan for my army. I'll of course be assimilating  some black reach marines and dreadnaught into the house of Russ. And slowly but surely building up a suitable force for Battle!
