Hi, I am starting an undead warband and am looking for some models to use as dire wolves. I am not sure if I am going to include any at first in my warband as they are a bit expensive but I would like to have a couple if I want to use them.

I could use the GW dire wolf models or goblin wolves but they look too big for me. I would prefer something I can put on a 20 or 25 mm base.

Does anyone have any ideas on what models I could use? \

Thanks for any suggestions.

www.reapermini.com has some decent dire wolf models as I recall. Just search for "wolf" or "dire wolf" and they should pop up.

Thanks for the suggestion. The reaper wolves look like a decent option. Do you know by any chance what size the base they are attached to is roughly?

Depending on the model they will likely come with either no base or a 25x50.

Your quest for a wolf that will fit on a 20mm or 25mm base may be difficult since the original Mordheim Dire Wolves and all of GWs Dire Wolves for the last 15yrs or so are intended for a 25x50 base.

Check out Gamezone's zombie wolves:

They're on 25x50 bases, but at least they look sexy enough to deserve it Wink

The reaper minis don't come with their own square bases, you'll have to provide those. As far as the size I can't say for sure, I've only used their regular humanoid models which I put on the standard GW bases I have around the house for my Fantasy armies.

The problem with trying to get a Dire Wolf that will fit on a 25mm square is it's not going to match the Beasty's stats...visually it will be a Dire Corgi Suspect . PLUS using a smaller base for a powerful creature is a bit cheesy. Suspect

If you go for a proper sized Dire Wolf, chect out Game Zone:

undead dire wolf models Gzm0731_1

undead dire wolf models Gzm0732_1

undead dire wolf models Gzm0733_1

Coll, huh!? What a Face

BTW Reaper's Warlord minis do come with plastic bases, although no 20mm squares...that's a G.W. only bit of twinkiness.
