Now I'm back into blogging I thought I would post today's WIP - a $15 Varghulf for my Vampire Counts undead army.
Varghulfs are, according to the army book Vampires who have let their bestial nature run unchecked ,supplanting their personality, and have devolved into deformed ravenous beasts, swollen on a constant diet of red meat.
They are also dead hard on the table, being tough, cheapish monsters with Regeneration.
Now the GW model is pants, and also (as usual) expensive. I was wandering through Toyworld today and spied this:
In comparison here is the GW model:
Now it's more than twice the size of GW model, but rediculously large centrepieces is kind of "my thing" :) It wouldn't do to just plonk him down as is (though it's tempting to make the grognards squeal) so I decided to convert him a bit and give him some hair, to match my Varghiests (baby Varghulfs with less of a kill count)
