Got an update for you folks. Finshed my Space Wolves Contemptor Dreadnought conversion for my dreadtober vow yesterday after a fair bit of bling being added and a small amount of sculpting. Pimpin my ride I like to think :)
The re-pose of the leg proved to be the trickiest part. The trial position I had in the last post did not work out when I came to glue it all together and pose the leg, so I had to go for a much more subtle bend to the leg. Still think it works though with the two kheres assault cannons on each arm. The sculpting of the hacked out joint was a bit challenging, and I am not 100% happy with the finish but hopefully the paint will hide most of the sins. Not sure I will repeat this step if I do another one as the amount of work for small amount og games does not seem worth it. Just doing the hip joints will be enough next time.
Really enjoyed adding all the bling to make him part of the Vlka Fenryka. Def feels like a space wolf now, and the shields and pelts just set him off nicely. Looking forward to painting him up now

While I was working on him I also decided to make some apothecaries for the Volsung. They are kit bashed from the B@C set, blood angel death company legs, apothecary torso and pad, and some anvil industry gubbins + a raid from my bits box for other bits and bobs. The legs I chose for the flowing parchments, which I will paint as aprons, with the signature blood splatter. A small pelt was sculpted where some blood angel iconography was hanging from the bottom of one apron. I like the slight wolfy (and impractical, terrible to wash all that blood off :D ) feel it gives to the legs. I might add a few more pelts here and there but for now they are done.
