Wounded Wolf by ning Wounded Wolf by ning
** Finally got around to adding a close up of the 'wolfs face.

-> Check out NERD FUEL for more images and sketches.
-> A new POST for this image is up at NERD FUEL. Check it out!

I've never been a super fan of the Space Wolves Chapter. It's always seemed to me like such a big deviation from the pure 40k space marine. But since reading the Space Wolves Omnibus I've come to appreciate it a bit more, with its Norse trappings and icey homeworld.

CS3 and Cintiq.

they aren't a deviatino from pure, all the legions have marks of individuality, the wolves just liek doing things their own way and have an affinity with wolves. UMs are roman/ greek obssessed, thousands sons are sorcery and egyption style, salamnaders are reptiel afiliated with scales etc..., raven guard are raven obssessed with claws n cone (beak like) helmets. great image though

thanks brother. You've always got to be a little concerned when pairing a rabbid Space Wolf with pastel blues, puples and oranges, right?

Space Wolves do indeed deviate from the original marines a lot.
Another example of this is the fact they would rather eat the codex astartes than read a single one of the rules inside it.
And well, I'm a fan of whatever pisses the smurf marines off. :XD:

Space Wolves are a group of genetically engineered super soldiers known for having long hair, wolve tokens and very bad breath.

Well, it's because they have a genetic impant called a Oolitic Kidney. Now here's what it says in the space marine codex: "This emergencny detoxification organ allows a space marine to eat otherwise poisonous or indigestable materials. Deadly poisons are either neutralised or isolated form the digestive tract." Now unfortunately, this also includes alcohol. But in Space Wolves, this implant is even more potent because of all the alcohol they can be expected to consume.

You're welcome. And yeah, Space Wolves are my favourite army. They have that 'noble savage' element to them that I find really cool.
