Privateer Press - War Wolf


Recommended Posts

One of the characters in my DnD game has magically and permanently befriended a winter wolf as a companion.

 

This is a newer model and with the armor and all, it really suited the player's style perfectly.

 

I wanted more white, but she insisted on significant darker tones so that it wouldn't stand out too badly when they weren't in snowy terrain.

 

Hope you enjoy.

The naturalistic base is a great touch to this mini. Excellent work!

 

A tad surprised you went with Circle Orboros' green for the armor if this is for a non-Hordes game. I'm imagining those armor plates in some sort of ice blue and silver. I think it could work. ^_^

 

A great job as is, though!

I like your crisp detailing on the plates, and I like the variety of tones that you incorporated into the fur, so it isn't just a single value of gray.

 

The variegation on the upper legs/flanks, though, looks patchy and unnatural.

On your next wolf or other furry animal, I would suggest smoothing out those sharp divisions between colors by mixing the halfway colors and scribbling them along the boundary. That is, after you paint colors 1-3-5-7, then add colors 2-4-6 in between.

When I paint fur, I often use wet-blending to set down the base coat, and then use a succession of washes and highlighting (even drybrushing, if the sculpted texture is suitable) -- going up and down, up and down -- to get a realistic simulation of the variety of colors over the body and even from the inner to the outer end of the hairs.

Examples by me:

Anyway, have fun in your game!
