Ragnar Paint Along Part 1 – Preparation

Hi Everyone, Welcome to my Ragnar Blackmane Paint Along Series Part 1 – Preparation. I know it’s not as fun as the painting, but when you’re painting a display or competition piece it’s important to take your time preparing the miniature and planning the colour schemes.

Creating My Space Wolf Battle Leader

I wasn’t going to bother entering Golden Demon this year, Voodooworx and real life had been keeping me busy so didn’t have much time to plan or do anything. I got chatting with a friend of mine one evening and afterwards I decided that I should try and enter something or I would just spend the whole day kicking myself.

It was only two weeks until the competition which didn’t leave me a huge amount of time at all. So I decided to focus on a single miniature, there wasn’t really enough time to do anything like a Squad or Regiment.

After looking on the Games Workshop website for some ideas I decided on a Space Marine, deciding what chapter was the easy part for me as I am a die hard Space Wolves fan. I came up with the idea to use the Kor’Sarro miniature leader of White Scars Chapter as a base for the conversion. A lot of the details on Kor’Sarro, like the wolf pelt on the backpack and the trophy teeth on his armour lend themselves really well to a Space Wolf.

I didn’t want to use the head and arms from the Kor’Sarro miniature, so looking through the piles of Space Wolf sprues I have lying around I settled on a bolt pistol arm for his left arm and power axe arm from the Space Wolf boxset for his right.

left arm - bolt pistol

The axe had two hands on it, but that was easily be removed.

right arm - power axe
