Eye Candy - Bran Bloodmaw' Epic Space Wolves - Support

I've been adding a few additional support (plus one special) units to Bran Bloodmaw's great company. Namely, Wolf Guard Terminators (these can be used in the great company or as a stand alone), Long Fangs, Blood Claws (attack bikes, infantry  and land speeders), to transport the Blood Claw infantry I also have a Thunderhawk plus a Wolf Priest (to max the thunderhawks' transport capacity). Ive added a dusty look to all the vehicles using the airbrush and some OSL to the thunderhawks' vision ports.

Eye Candy - Bran Bloodmaw' Epic Space Wolves

One of my first loves in the wargaming world was Epic Space Marine.  This is Warhammer 40,000 played with 6mm (Epic scale) miniatures. This means your battlefield is a large war zone, like a city or sprawling terrain, your army(s) are made up of companies of troops and can even include massive city block sized war machines, like titans. This all makes for a truly epic wargame, and one which I spent many hours of my late teens (in-between study, TV, Computers and girlfriends).
I started out with 'Space Marine' 1st ed. but my favourite version was the 2nd ed., that is until I recently discovered NetEpic, a free online players version (based on 2nd ed.). Although I have sold off much of my epic collection (a fact which greatly saddens me), I am looking to rebuild. This last week I have worked on today's offering, Bran Bloodmaw's great company and a detachment of whirlwinds. I have some Terminator minis on order and these will replace the regular Wolf Guard in the company, giving them extra punch. (the astute will see from my pics, I've accidentally added a couple off extra Rhinos).






Next I will look to adding Blood Claws with a Thunderhawk and some Long Fangs.
