Seriously, I didn’t need another werewolf. I mean, I’ve got a couple already and how often do you need more than two? But then I saw this gem-of-a-sculpt by Tre Manor, and I just couldn’t help myself. It’s just got such an awesome look of ferocity and power.
In truth, this is one of those miniatures that does most of the painting for you. The fur is so detailed and crisply cast that a few layers of dry-brushing and you are most of the way there. I then painted up the details to match my other wolves and werewolves so he’d fit right in. Well, not quite. This guys is obviously ‘the boss’.
One of these days I’m going to have to write a scenario set in Tol-in-Gaurhoth (The Isle of Werewolves from Tolkien’s First Age stories), just so I can use them all at the same time.
