The weekend at the painting table was spent working on this guy. The limited edition sculpt that Games Workshop released last weekend in honor of thirty years of Space Marines.
I decided to go with a classic Space Wolf color scheme. Despite having a Space Wolf army it had been a long time since I'd tackled their classic scheme since I do mine in a far darker blue scheme.
It's a great sculpt even if it's 'just' a Space Marine. The quality of the plastics that Games Workshop are doing at the moment is setting a high bar, albeit it a pretty steep price for these special single miniatures.
I spent way longer on this one than I would a normal rank and file marine, but that was also kind of nice as I didn't feel the need to rush through it. (something I fall prey to a lot when doing masses of infantry)
Amazing to think it's been thirty years since these guys appeared!
The finished result:
