MiniMasterpieces - The Wolf by Aerion-the-Faithful MiniMasterpieces - The Wolf by Aerion-the-Faithful
Hello dear watchers and watcherettes...

I bring you another Dark Millenium piece yet again. This time depicting a brother of one of the most played and respected chapters of the First Founding: Space Wolves.

The wolves always seemed a bit out of place to me, fluff-wise. I couldn't understand how something so barbaric would strap on a power armour suit and go battling throughout the galaxy to enlighten (?) stray planets.
But, having drawn wolves for some time, I've actually come to respect that savage nature indeed. Mostly because it is what sets them apart from the norm, making them interesting.
What I thought a fault at first has become the reason I see these guys working within the context of Warhammer 40,000. Plus, it's always a challenge to illustrate the scars and battle damage a warrior of the Chapter endures in his lifespan of service.

As usual, you'll have the last word. I hope to hear what you think!

Nic.-

PS.. By the way, if you want to see some fine sculpts of various characters, click here: [link] It's the client's own website and I promised him some pimpin', so come by and drop him a visit! Tell him Uncle Aerion sent ya'!

Awesome pic! While the wolves never particularly interested me, this is a great picture.

I've come to understand from the GrimDark of the WH40K universe is that, regardless of their customs or agendas or cultures, all the Space marines Chapters and Legions believe in the same principle of protecting those unable to do so themselves.

I don't know idf you heard this but in the Space Wolf Omnibus you'll find out that the Chapter is actually harvesting a special root (can't remeber it's name) that they put in their liquer so they can get drunk.
Also when one of the Space Wolfs challenged one to a drinking contest the loser had to stop drinking ale and drink milk insted, it ended with the loser going insane.
