Welcome to my tutorial for how I paint my Space Wolves. I personally dislike the 'traditional' baby blue that GW paint their studio Space Wolf army and so decided to paint mine with dark, storm grey armour, much like their Pre-Heresy colour scheme.
I also opted to represent Harald Deathwolf's Company as opposed to Ragnar's so mine will sport red shoulders and detailing instead of yellow.
First step is to base and prime the models but as this is widely done by most hobbyists anyway I decided to leave it out of the tutorial and start from the first base coat.
'Innocence proves nothing'
The first step is to base coat the Power Armour with Eshin Grey. A good solid base coat is needed so it may take 2 coats. I'm generally quite messy at this stage to save time as any grey on other parts of the model will be covered anyway.
|The next step is to shade the grey with Agrax Earthshade. Rather than washing the model I apply the paint directly into the recesses to avoid unnecessary pooling on the armour.|
