Howl's Your Day Been?

Sorry - I couldn't resist the pun :)

I had thought that I would have finished the basing and flocking on Tuesday, but various things got in the way. However, over the past three days I've been doing a little bit here, a little bit there and they are finally finished.

I hadn't noticed while I was prepping them, but there were only three poses (four of each), so I had to do a bit more work in the painting and washes to introduce some variety. They've come out quite nicely.

Some close-ups of a single base:

These figures are 28mm from Blue Moon. They will be joining the Dragon Rampant wolf pack I painted up during this year's Challenge.


  1. Great work on the Wolves Tamsin, I think with how you've based them I hadn't noticed the limited number of poses

  2. Great looking wolves. Basing really helps sell the pack.

  3. I agree they look good, having to buy them by the pack (intended pun!) does necessarily limit the number of poses!

  4. Nice work I thought these were going to be 15mm nor 28mm for some reason. Great job Tamsin!

  5. Paws to think….??.no, I won´t try to be a wag or bark up the wrong tree and come out with a shaggy dog Story or indeed tail. They look really good..they´ll definately ruff someone up…….I´ll get my coat.

  6. Great work Tamsin! Wouldn‘t have realized there are just three different poses. Clever painting and basing I‘d say.

  7. Dynamic and splendid wolves Tamsin, great job!

  8. @ Dave stone - cheers! :)

    @ Pancerni - thanks! :)

    @ Herkybird - cheers! :)

    @ Simon Q - thanks! These are definitely big 28mm - I should do a size comparison shot with the Warbases & North Star wolves I painted earlier in the year :)

    @ Paul - cheers! And thanks for the pawful uns! :)

    @ Ray - thanks! :)

    @ Nick - cheers! Variation in the painting and washes combined with how I arranged them on the bases has helped to hide the small number of poses :)

    @ Phil - thanks! :)

  9. What a great looking pack! Well done Tamsin.
