So this is going to be making an appearance in my army as soon as I can model him up. Get ready for some werewolf beatdowns!

That's what's giving me trouble. I am debating on whether I should try my hand at extensive green stuff application to some spare wolf bits or bite the bullet and get one of the warmahordes werewolf dudes.

ugh, warmahordes werewolves? So cartoony and terrible. I would suggest perhaps the skinwolves from FW fantasy, or sticking a wolf head on the dark eldar big furry spined thing.

Ooooo! I like that idea bud. I will have to do some more shopping around and see what I can come up with.

using one of those werewolf things from infinity from the ariadna faction might be good too.  you can even add the odd bit of space wolf bits to it to make him look like he changed and ripped apart his armour in the process.

Aren't the infinity guy's tru-scale? Like properly sized hands and heads, as compared to 40k dubers?

his rules are actually.. fairly Beastly Smile

ws7 st6 t6 I6 FNP, A5 Eternal warrior, Fleet, furious charge, counter attack 2+/5++ rending? drops his sword but keeps his relic armour.

hes basically a monstrous creature with grenades.


Just dont get picked off by a lascannon before you change and get EW. haha


PS: does counter attack trigger furious charge?

They are more heroic 28mm since they switched to computer sculpting sometime in 2015. It is actually one of my complaints lately. The original range had some really cool models that were true scale. Now the models are much more hit and miss since they are "heroic" scale and some of them look goofy. Also posing is a bit of a problem (tactical rocks and fists everywhere!).

How dare you. There hasn't been a single bad model since they switched the scale and started digital sculpting. No slandering of the Corvus Belli. NONE.

for an idea on scale, that dude in the middle that looks like he's dual wielding hand flamers is about the size and bulk of a guardsman model. overall the same size, but more true-scale.  the big wolf man behind him is a Devil dog.  He's a good baseline for a Redmaw i think.  but since The Redmaw doesn't have a BS, might have to pick an alternate devil dog model or carefully clip the gun away and remodel him grasping something else.





like maybe one of these Antipodes:
 

i'm kinda partial to the one on the left with the scars over his eyes.  But ideally, i'd say the BIG one in the ASAriadna army box set would probably be ideal for a baseline model to convert; he seems bigger than these antipodes as well (he's got one standing beside him in that picture i think), and these are actually a pretty good size in person.

Technically this is libel. To be fair the new stuff is still amazing. I just think they have to get back in the swing of things a bit. I certainly liked some of their older stuff.

For example I really like the old Achilles model. The new one not so much. The old one had so much more flavor. Now he's generic sci-fi dude holding a head from one of the planet of the apes monkeys.

Truth. I'll still be using the old Achilles model more often than not.

Counter Attack does not trigger Furious Charge.
