Reavers (Space Wolves) Grey Hunters Squad Painted

Ok, so the summer is slipping away and I’m far from finished with my army.  The Bjorn conversion took a lot more time than I’d expected.  The good news is that I’ve finished the modelling I need to field my list, and the paint scheme I’ve chosen lends itself well to batch painting.  I have one full squad of Grey Hunters finished and a bunch more underway.

Below are some pictures of the first squad finished, 10 Grey Hunters with 2 Plasma Guns, one Mark of the Wulfen, and one Wolf Standard:

The Reavers are a ship bound chapter (I’ll post the conclusion of their origin fluff soon) so I decided to base them as if they were fighting on a space hulk.  They’ll all be standing on grates or deck plating.  I’ve used a fiberglass mesh to add grated flooring to this unit.  I didn’t want the worn metal of the power armor to blend too much into the basing-that would make the models a bit bland.  To contrast them a bit I’ve made the flooring more heavily rusted than the armor.  They may not paint their armor but the certainly take care to make sure it isn’t corroding away!

I think that’s the most painting I’ve seen you do in a long time. They look good. The red and gold is a nice contrast to the armor and once you base them it will really all pull together nicely. Oh, and everything takes longer than expected.

I’m blind, I see the basing now. Maybe it’s the lighting but the basing color seems to blend with the armor.
