Today I received a box from MaxMini and was happy to find the new Wolf Mount model enclosed.
We have been feeding you info about this model for a while, but I now have it in my hands and am able to give it a real good going over.
Due to the length of the model, I threw it on a bike base, but it should also fit on the round base, with a bit of hanging off. I found that in this casting the mounting foot was a bit too high up to mount to the base, but since it is a resin casting a quick dip in some hot water and it was easy to bend down just a bit to get it where I wanted it.
I added some Space Wolf Marine bits on it to try it out as a Fenris Wolf Mount, so you can get an idea of how it will look with a rider.
Also in the box was a set of the new feral heads, one of which I also added to the rider.
As you can see, looks pretty good and the scale is great for giant wolves. Make sure you click on the pictures for some nice big photos.
These models are available direct from MaxMini, and I am sure some of you Space Wolves players will be ready for them.
Here is a closeup of the riders legs bit of the model, which can be used as well as a bit with just the fur. There will be a some small gaps at the leg joint and " saddle area" that you may want to fill using greenstuff which should be easy to blend into the fur of the casting.
The little tail bit in front of the legs is part of the plastic marine torso.
I hope these pictures with a space marine mounted will answer some of the questions you may have had about this model, and at 15 EU or $22, I think it's a great model.
So what do you think?
