So for those keeping up I recently reviewed the Wrathmonger box which is a lovely kit, but more importantly I was left with many spares.
So I have 5 torsos, a load of weapon options and some front plates to play around with but I need some legs. Skullreapers don’t strike me as something I could do as a snake body, too Slaaneshiiii
Since this is Chaos and Khorne I need something that has a nod to this….Maybe a Cenataur? but not sure a horse would work too well as I wanted to keep them on the 40mm base to be legal..
So after a dig around at the always helpful Triple Helix Wargames I came across the Fenrisian Wolf Pack which come on 40mm bases and as a set they are very cheap!
After cracking open the box all the wolves are a nice size and more importantly come with the heads detached 🙂
Lets get creative!!
well this certainly has some promise admittedly some of them are a little tall, so I decided to chop the wolf neck down a little bit.
So after some dry fitting and gluing I ended, we hit the next problem is the back..
Which should be easy enough as I still need to decide on the back banners and then its time to hit the Green Stuff!
But by far the best bit is they more or less match the size of the Wrathmongers!! This is key for me as you want to be able to say yes they are Skullreapers but they need to take up the same volume really and I think I have managed that!
With that in mind I have managed to get 2 units for the 3/4 the price of getting to boxes of the almost same models..
So if anything I am saving the environment with these……ignore the tight Yorkshireman writing.
The wolves I have to say are worth it for the price you pay plus I think they could be used in several armies.
Before the new plastic Flesh hounds landed I had considered them with some conversion to be my count-as.
