Painting Space Marine Legions – Space Wolves 6

Painting Space Marine Legions – Space Wolves

Here is the first painting guide for pre-Heresy Space Marine legions! The first chosen legion is the mighty Space Wolves, decided quite convincingly by public poll.

This is a simple step-by-step guide covering the process involved in painting a marine to a tabletop standard. It has definitely been a good challenge and lesson for myself throughout painting the model. I can certainly see room for improvement and hope that such a thing will happen as this series develops!

The Iron Suit (Armorum Ferrum) was created as a heavier alternative to the previous marks of armour, rather than a replacement. Due to heavy casualties from engagements aboard ships and within tunnel complexes, a more robust suit was required. The Iron Suit boasted superior frontal armour, with full plate protection, but a lighter rear to compensate and allow mobility.

As requested by a visitor to the site, here are 6 simple steps to create the bases that I’ve shown in my previous imagery. I selected 6 models to show each stage of the process.

To begin, add some sand or similar to the base. You can either glue it on with PVA and then paint a watery later of glue on top once it has dried, or use superglue if you want to get the job done quick. Add the sand in patches by applying small areas of glue and then dipping the model’s base into your tray of sand.
