HORUS HERESY - Leman Russ and his Wolf-kin


I recently had the chance to work on my first Forgeworld Primarch model, Leman Russ. It was interesting returning to him after I had converted and painted one a bunch of years ago (almost seven years! Check it out HERE).

Obviously the Forgeworld model is a better sculpt, and my painting has continued to improve over the last few years (or at least I hope it has), so it was a lot of fun. The Wolf-kin (Freki and Geri, not sure which is which) were also a lot of fun to paint, as were the bases.




The front part of the larger base for Leman Russ is separate (connected with magnets), so that the Great Wolf himself can slip out and spend some time on the miniature battlefield.



I hope you like them : )

  1. Terrible, man. Just terrible, seeing what you've done to those poor beleaguered Thousand Sons. Hah!

    In all seriousness though, beautifully done! Really dig how they all turned out - I might suggest the nose on the white wolf could stand to be darker, but that's literally the only minor niggle I could bring to bear.

    ...Other than it's all Space Wolf stuff which is of course the worst possible legion. ;)

  2. They look great. I assume the Thousand Sons shoulder pad is moulded onto the arm or the figure?

    1. Thanks. Not sure I know exactly what you mean, but everything is stock, no conversion work.

    2. The guy being knocked over by Freki (or is that Greri?) has a Thousand Sons shoulder pad on his left arm. Now, that comes with the kit as you've said it's stock, but is the shoulder pad moulded with the arm/shoulder, or is it a separate piece? Just in case I want to have my own mauling someone other than Thousand Sons.

    3. Aaahh, I get you now. It is definitely attached to the arm, but the arms are both separate pieces, so you could switch them for something more appropriate to your needs.

  3. I still don't like the figure, but that's a great paint job!
