Since my commission jobs have been piled high and deep for the summer, I have realized that it may be some time before I get my Blood Angels finished. As a result, a week or two ago I decided to play a game with my Wolves on Vassal. You can read that report here: Space Wolf Razorspam vs. Horde Orks- a Vassal Report.
That really got my creative juices flowing and I decided to create my counts-as thunderwolf lord. I don't have a name for him, but the Lord of the Thunderhooves is definitely going to be his title. I found an interesting model lying around. It is a reaper miniature called Barros and Tempest. The mode is pretty sweet altogether, but the pegasus is what really drew me in. First, the model is massive. It really fits the proportion of a genetically engineered horse that a space marine might ride. Second, the sculpt is beautiful. With that mentioned, my thunderhoof lord began. Here he is, very much WiP.
On his back is the cloak of a Fantasy Warrior of Chaos. I still have some greenstuffing to do on the underside of the it. By the way, the legs are made from terminator legs. He has a power armor torso and arms. I'm not sure where the lightning claw came from but it is a power armor claw and is smaller than the terminator ones. The storm shield is a cleaned up Fantasy Warriors of Chaos shield. That miniature range is really great for making a gritty warrior look.
So, there you have my Lord of the Thunderhooves. Let me know what you think of him. I hopefully will have some paint applied shortly.
