As the title states, this is about the model that got me into Circle Orboros. As shown by my Space Wolves army, I guess I do have an inclination toward wolf and werewolf themed models. Although, being in combination with a viking theme really made it a killer combo. Anyway, this model to me is my favorite werewolf model in the most intimidating scale that I've seen. The scale really drew me into Warmachine and then Hordes, having hulking machines/monsters serve as the core of an army really appeals to me.
This beast comes in both the Circle battle box and the two player starter set, so he's obviously a good model to get started with. My Feral Warpwolf has been featured in every game I've played so far and has filled a core role every time, and looked good doing it.
I used the brown two headed wolf model from my previous post as a test model for almost the exact scheme I was planning to use for this model. I did end up planning a good amount for the model its the one I was most excited about painting and using in the starter set. I went with a pretty general theme for him, I figured if I really liked the look of him, I would like the look of the whole army. It turned out well but its a simple paint scheme, I used terra earth from valejo as a base for the fur and dry brushed the longer haired areas with grey for distinction. I mixed the base color with bronzed flesh for the highlight and used bestial brown for the leather armor. All of it was brought together with a heavily watered down mix of the valejo smoky ink.
