Well I’ve finally found some time to add my Space Wolf Battle Leader. It was my entry into the 40K Single Miniature Category at Golden Demon UK’10. I was over the moon to get a silver demon for this entry, in one of the toughest categories. It took me over 100 hours from start to finish, which I crammed into two weeks before the competition. It is heavily converted from the Kor’Sarro White Scars Character miniature.
Some close ups of the face and freehand tattoos.
Some close ups of the freehand on the shoulder pads. I wanted him to be a Wolf Guard Battle Leader so gave him the yellow and black insignia on his right shoulder pad and he is from Ragnar’s Company so I gave him a freehand black wolf head on yellow background.
For the base I wanted to try a new style that I had seen one of my favourite painters, David Rodriguez Garcia ‘Karaikal’ use quite a lot. The angle on the edge of the base is carried up through the detail, I think it makes it look like the miniature is part of a much bigger scene rather than just sitting on a base.
For those of you who are interested, I’ll be putting a stage by stage post up later so you can see how I went about creating this entry.
Hope you like.
