Warhammer 40K - Titan - Iron Wolf

Recommended Posts

I was surprised with this gift for my birthday.:D

My son had ordered the conversion set for the Iron Wolf as I have a preference for the Space Wolves Space Marines chapter. :viking:

So I have this:

And after a day and a half I've gotten this far: :D

 It'll be my interpretation of an Iron Wolf Titan, so please bear with me, if it isn't totally by the codex! :winkgrin:

 

Cheers :bye:

Been working on the upper body a bit more. :D

I haven't attached the wolfshead permanently yet as to ease the painting.

I'm toying with the idea of painting the head as if it was made of wood like the dragonhead on a vikingship? :hmmm:The result is not in yet!:winkgrin:

 

Cheers :bye:

Quite like the conversion set! I'm assuming it will be in Space Wolf themed colours? If that's the case, I'm not sure how well wood would fit with that if that's the only wooden part, I've not actually seen anyone do that before! Perhaps some sort of dark obsidian or granite-like stone (maybe with glowing runes) or bone (a big feature of Space Wolf Iconography), or even gold/brass (something like the figurehead on on Logan Grimnar's Stormrider) could work.

Yes it'll be in the Space Wolf colour of light gray'ish blue for the head and the base colourscheme. :D

I've backed away from the wood colours again and more towards gold/brass - perhaps yellow - for the trimmings.

Black/darkgray for the inner machinery.

The pilot will receive a new helmet - a Wolfs head! :D

So - a small update! :D

I've painted a basepaint in preparation for the black-ish paint I'll be using - perhaps a very dark blue? :hmmm:

I've added some details. Luckily I have the Canis Rex Titan which has a wolf as totem, so I'll be using those as well as parts from some other Space Wolves kits. :winkgrin:

On all the Titans I've seen on the net, not one has an connector there - It's time to change that! :winkgrin:

That is looking great, not having built one of these I don't know for sure but it certainly looks they should have have a piston connection in that last picture, were is @Will Valewhen you need him?

Nice work so far 👍

i like the idea of a wooden figurehead but a metallic one would be more durable in battle perhaps? 

I have never seen those two points connected. I look forward to seeing what you do. 

Cheers

Looks very cool, I like the Space-Wolf-ification bits.

 

I suppose those two eyes on the back of the leg could be lifting lugs for the components? If you assume there's a joint motor in the knee or something then the lack of a piston might be excused :)

 

But more hydraulics are always fun!

Another small update while I ponder the next steps! :hmmm:

What I'm pondering is what to do with his left arm - weapons etc. - there's so much to choose from! :winkgrin:

 

Cheers for now :bye:

There are lots of parts still left - both big and small, so I may be here for a while to come! :winkgrin:

Well now - if you take a step back - say three feet and squint, then you'll get an idea of where I'm heading with this! :winkgrin:

Those claws work, methinks! :winkgrin:

...and now that I have built up both arms and weapons I took a look around the sprues and found two pistons that I didn't need so I put them to good use. :D

Had to shorten them, but that's what a hobbyknife is for, right? :winkgrin:

Another update :D

I've been experimenting with the 'Haispray technique (spray some hairspray on your model, sprinkle some coarse salt on, spray on a secondary colour, remove the salt and thus achieve a weathered effect)

It's barely visible in the photo's (and in real life if I'm honest), but it's something I'll try again. 

Perhaps it's because I used metalcolours? :hmmm:

I'll try it again when I paint the bluegray Space Wolves paint on.

Anyway, here's some pictures: :D

I get some Caine-vibes looking at this! :winkgrin:

I have now given it a cote of Model Master Metalizer varnish.

It's almost a pity that the hand will be covered by a shield....?....or will it?...:hmmm:

Finished the cockpit, but have a look at how much will be seen! With flash: :hmmm:

Without flash: :hmmm:

I've taken the machineparts as far as I wish, and are now turning my attention to the outer armour:

And finally the question that riddles my mind at the moment: :hmmm:

Ahhh - all those questions... :winkgrin:

So! It's saturday and the first day of my wifes three weeks summerholliday! :D

My progress on this will therefore slow down a bit, but on the sunnyside she has agreed to go with me to the Danish Aircraft Museum, so I'm a happy man! :winkgrin:

Here's where I'm at:

Hmmm I use a similar technique for shell/blaster holes. I drill partially through fill the hole with Tamiya extra thin wait a minute or so then I can shape it. Will give your idea a try on my next armor/sci-fi build.

Cool!!

I have a semi assembled Imperial Knight Warden in the box, but have problems getting the paint right, despite following GWs instructions.

I am new to their paints, so need some more experience with those.

I must admit, that I mix my own colours using Modelmaster enemals, Humbrol enemals, Revell enemals.... :)

I haven't quiet got the hang of spraying with Citadels paints, but they are great for detail painting, although I must again admit that I use Revell and Humbrol acryllic paints for detaling.

 

Here's a little look on how it looks without the salt:

Interesting effect, but it's something I'll have to work on. :hmmm:
