Fenris and Wolves

I was a backer for the Red Box Games kickstarter, and basically did so in order to get these miniatures.  I do not like any of the other wolf miniatures that are out there.  I want my wolves looking scary and mean, and these really fit the bill.

I based Fenris (the big wolf) on a large lipped base, put a Renedra plastic gravestone on it, filled it in with white putty and some sand.  I did the painting fast - basically just a drybrushing of different shades of grey.  One thing I didn't like about him was the separate legs - I had to pin one of them on and managed to get the other to stay with glue.  It's a minor quibble, but it was something I found annoying.  Fenris is made of resin, which is not my favourite material but was easy to work with and the mould lines were minor and easy to clean up.

The smaller wolves came with the heads detached, which will help when I get more of them so I can make them look a little different.  The bases are from Fenris Games (I didn't intentionally pick them just for the name!) and fit well with the gothic horror theme I plan to use the wolves with.

I am happy I finally found some wolves that I really like and look forward to getting some more of them when Tre Manor has them for sale on his website.  Highly recommended!
