Product review: Maxmini – Giant Wolves
- Wolf body
- 3 wolf head variants
- Wolf leg
- Rider legs
- Wolf pelt
Note that you get 1 random head per purchase, selected from one of these 3. Maxmini are more than happy to provide the head of your choice if you include a note.
The loose leg and the heads all fit together almost seamlessly. The Wolf is in a running pose, with 1 foot fully touching the ground, though a front paw could be placed on the base too.
You have the option of making the wolf riderless, by attaching the bit of pelt. This covers the bare mid-section. A good idea would be to pin or magnetise these sections so that they are interchangeable.
The model is a bit longer than a GW cavalry base.
Some minor gaps need to be filled on the neck and leg, but both of these are under or inside, so not noticeable if not addressed.
The rider’s legs are a very finely sclupted armour, perfecty fitting your average Space Marine should you wish to make something such as Thunderwolf Caalry.
The back of the legs include a knife, pouch and bag.
How does the model scale? Lets’s place it next to a Space Wolf:
As the wolf is longer than a Cavalry base, the front paw can’t easily be placed onto the base. Instead, I opted to mount the whole thing onto a rock as though it is leaping. The resin is strong enough to take a pin through the back leg and hold the weight.
With the model based and gaps filled, he’s ready to join the paining queue. Here’s a few more scale shots.
Scale vs Terminator:
I’m very eager to paint this with rider, so keep an eye out for an update!
