Default New Chapter, Kodiak Space Marines

Working on a new chapter and the rules will be a pretty straight cut and dry version of the Space Wolfs with the 13 chapter rules included.

The new chapter is simpley a new twist on some nice old guys.* ^_^
I have wanted to do this for awhile but I think my greenstuff and converting skills are only just now close enough to pulling this off so I finally gave it a try.

I have some fluff but need alot more to work them out.

But I give you what I have started so far.

The Kodiak Space Marines.

I did a quick dry brush so you can alteast make out some details until I get a chance to paint him up.
Heres a highly transformed 13th chapter Kodiak Marine.





and heres a side shot and a size comp to see just how big these guys are.

you're scary good at conversions Greydeath. The model looks great though I wouldn't want to be the one to make a whole army like that!

MY GOD MAN DO YOU EVER STOP!! That is a sweet looking model but its gonna be hell amkin an entire army of them bud. I like the idea of including all the rules for the wolves but be cautious. You may find that elements of the fluff, aswell as the rules effect the army. Jst a bit of advice mate but otherwise congrats on yet another supperb model!!

Thaks guys.

I have some fluff under way.

And NO I will not be making a hole army of these guys just one squad to be my 13th chapter from the space wolves.

The rest of the army would be made out of mostly the space wof bits and stuff. with greenstuff to thicken up nad bulk out all the wovles to be bears.


The model was actually a pewter bear I found and then I cut it up into a bunch of parts stood him up into the position I wanted and went nuts putting him back togehter with greenstuff.

THanks for the input and the help about the rules etc.

Hey did you guys click on my other link to see how big this guy turned out!
And he would have been even taller if I hadn't cut him up he would have been even bigger.

Eh, I don't like the pewter bear base model ... it's back sticks out to far and, I think, makes it looks ... too slow and ungainly ... I dunno, just not my thing I guess ...

No htats fine the more I look at it the more I think it was the base model that I should have tried to find a better one.

but out of every search and model sites I talked to this was the only bear that seemed realistic and close.

so I tried it.

But I just didn't have the skills to turn it into that amazing conversion and fig.

I just have to get even better next time.

Thanks man and yes I would be using the Wulfen rules for them.
I thought that would be very cool.

But I think I will call them WereBear, uhm, rules instead.....
