The head reminds me of the Stark direwolf sigil from Game of Thrones. The bulk really is not helped by the smooth appearance. I suppose some fur definition could be sculpted in with green stuff.

The Oathmark wolf next to the horse is really jarring to me but maybe painting would reduce that?

The Oathmark wolfrider looks good on the Fenrisian wolf.... but my budget, and my wife, thinks I should just take some plastic chaos hounds in my bits box and convert them to wargs. At least until folks start selling used Oathmark wolfiders on eBay. Of course that means sculpting with green stuff again.

Wolf rider spare bits sprues will be nice to add diversity to goblin infantry builds.

I've said it before, but I really hope the wolves get redesigned and remade in a better shape.

I'll have to paint one the Asgard wolf riders up this weekend so everyone can get an idea.
There are also the Slave2Gaming wolves,sculpted in a very old school style, very good they are too :)

Am I right in thinking the goblins are very small and, presumably, the wolves are also small for modern 28mm figures?

This is a WIP.  So far I have just trimmed back with a hobby knife and file.  Green Stuff next.
