I've started work on my fourth 40K army (fifth if you count my sons Orks - but you don't, so fourth): Space Wolves. Now there is alot to like about Space Wolves - the rules, some ultracool units like thunderwolf cavalry, some of the visual stuff and bling they carry around, and of course the hilarious idea of mutated/genetically modified supermen with fangs, and loads of wolves. And then some more wolves. And to top it off, an additional one or two wolves. But, their hairdos are preposterous, IMHO. So, what to do? Well, being a dreadlocks kinda person myself, I gave them dreads. These are the first four models I've applied my limited green stuff skills to, and I'm fairly pleased with the result.






Ideas on how to continue this project dreadswise are appreciated. I have thirtytwo more models to dreadify, and I want it to be done right!

So far the dreads look pretty saggy (good, but saggy). Maybe try to get some more fluff in them? I think I have a mini somewhere to show what I mean. I'll see if I can post a picture or bring it by next time we game.

I'd also like to see some realy big bushy beards in there =)

Would be real nice to see one painted ;)

Or prehaps finishing of your rastafarians for necromunda would give you some inspiration :D

WOW I bet those Dreadlocks will look amazing when they are painted man! I honestly think Spacewolves default hairstyle is kind of silly, yours will look great!

The Dreads definitely give the Wolf Guys a new & improved look. GOOD IDEA! thumbsup

Thanks guys! The Dread Wolves are on hiatus for now (until I've finished my Arbites army, which probably isn't more than two months away), but I've managed to put dreads on 15-ish minis now, and only got about 30 left to do.

Re: more hamsterfluff - show me how you mean. I am keen on a realistic dread look, which I think I've achieved so far. If by fluffy you mean not laying against the head, I'm probably not interested in going that way - dreads are heavy man, sometimes when I lean too far in a direction I almost fall over... Wink

Finally some progress! All models have been given dreadlocks, and the painting has begun. I was surprised how easy these models were to paint. Admittedly, I've taken some shortcuts, and left some of the details as part of the power armour instead of giving them the treatment they were meant to have, but still, these guys add up fast!

Two units (or sometimes one) of Grey Hunters:






Their bases need to be done, but I'll wait with that until I've finished all the Troops models. At this rate I will probably have finished all the troops before this week is over. So, feel free to comment!

EXCELLENT! The colors you chose are, to my mind/taste much more attractive/ appropriate to the subject than the baby blue S.Ws. are normally painted. I found with large numbers of minis to paint, it is best to go back after they've been completed to add the details when there is less of a rush. That aside, the brushwork looks FANTASTIC...VERY WELL DONE!  thumbsup

Agreed! The wolves are looking great with the dreadlocks and I think the color scheme really suits them better. Well done!
