Heresy Era Space Wolves - Geigor Fellhand Complete!

Managed to sneak in a couple hours over the weekend and finished off Wolfy McWolferson Geigor Fellhand!


Pretty happy with the storm grey armour and the brassy trim, and the blue and red accent colors pop nicely. It's definitely a challenging model to photograph, the pose tends to look a little flat but in-hand I really think it's got a great sense of weight and motion to it.


Overall I rather enjoyed painting him up, and it was a nice break between batches of Genestealer Cultists! That said, the next batch of Acolyte Hybrids are sitting on the desk in front of the painting servitor's duty station. Prepare for purple!

That's beautiful, mate; you've got that heresy grey spot on and the highlight colours are terrific. Well done, it's a great model.

Beautiful job mate, really good stuff. It's a great sculpt too.

Frothing Muppet said...

Great rendition mate.

NafNaf said...

Looks great dude. Tempted to turn to the darksde and collecta wolves army? ;)

Nick Thrower said...

Looks really good, as others have said the grey is great and the gold contrast looks great.

Bring on the acolytes though!

Rory Priest said...

No rest for the wicked eh?

Looks good though. Are all the other marines going to be Sons or Wolves?

@Smithy2727: THanks very much, man!

@Siph_Horridus: Cheers, bud!

@Frothing Muppet: I appreciate it!

@NafNaf: Hah! There was a twinge, but I managed to supress it! :)

@Nick Thrower: Thanks! The next batch of Acolytes are in progress, pics soon!

@Rory Priest: ...And the righteous don't need any! Actually the majority of the other models from the Prospero box are going to end up being Imperial Fists!

@Zzzzzz: Thanks man! He'll be on the way soon!

@#2501: Thanks very much!

I appreciate all the kind words, folks - cheers!

Argh, late to the party again, great job. The grey is really cool! So much better than the baby blue of 40k wolves!

Dai said...

Really like the finished effort mate. You're right on the pose - excellent and realistic sense of movement.

Joe B said...

He looks fantastic! The blue claws and gems really shine against the dark armor.

Mordian7th said...

@Col. Hertford: Thanks very much man! Aye, I definitely prefer the moody storm grey of the heresy era marines.

@Dai: Cheers, bud!

@Joe B: I appreciate it! Definitely a fun model to paint, though the Thousand Sons side of me rebelled! ;)

Freaking epic buddy! Sorry for my lack of comments! Been super lazzzy since nafka's blog wheel thing went down!

Mordian7th said...

@Greg Hess: Cheers man! Was definitely a fun model to paint up!

That looks awesome mate!
If you dont mind me asking, what colour scheme did you use to paint the grey? Thanks.

Mordian7th said...

Thanks!

It's fairly straightforward, used Vallejo Shadow Grey, drybrushed lightly with Vallejo Cold Grey, then washed with Army Painter Dark Tone. Easy peasy!
