Cool! Fire Hawks have quite a tricky livery, but wow, you made it work!
Looking forward to see more!

Awesome! :) He certainly looks the part. Mantis Warriors have that "look", you know? Predatory. Remember when we just called Apothecaries, Marine Medics?

Speaking of, I found my RT-era Ultramarine Medic. I'll post my own thread eventually, but let's say I wasn't *quite* the painter I am now. XD

Sharply executed that Apothecary. Now I'm all the more impatient to see the whole mob done in a group shot... :D

Thanks everyone! I was a little nervous about doing the white on this guy, but GW White Scar thinned down covers pretty well And I didn't run into many problems with paint getting too thick.

I'm looking forward to doing the banner, but still haven't decided what I want to go on it besides the chapter badge. Definitely something with the Maelstrom Warders from their background fluff.

I do remember them being called medics. I still don't like the name apothecary much...I keep thinking of a drugstore.

Looking forward to that thread Anna :)

Hey. :) I found enough stuffs around the house to re-build a Space Wolf force, 2nd Edition Codex Space Wolves-style. :)

I need to get some paint Payday, then I'm in business. :)

Yes, Y'all inspired me with this Old Skool, RT-era, Marine awesomeness. :)

Excellent! You can do the Space Wolf campaign from the Chapter Approved: Book of the Astronomicon when typy hey them painted. I've never played those scenarios but they always looked fun.

Oooh, I don't have that one. :) I started just before 2nd Edition box was released. I even found an old metal Ulrik the Slayer. :D

"Feed the Wolf, Brothers." XD

I'm going to do the old Blackmane Company, with all the Viking-style shoulder pads and such. :)

Oh nice. The Bkackmane company was sharp looking. 2nd edition was probably the time I liked the look of the Space Wolves most. Enough viking to look good, not too over the top.

For Russ!

Most of my Marines are 3rd Edition plastics w/ the 3rd Edition Space Wolf Accessories, I found a few old metals, too.

I'm going to make a new plastic Ragnar Blackmane, the old one is so flat-posed, I'm going to use a plastic Commander as the base figure, give him some life. :)

Just waiting for 10AM to spray prime some Marines. :)
