Space Wolves Vs. Kraken by TheLandoBros Space Wolves Vs. Kraken by TheLandoBros
Coolminiornot page, please do rate it :)

Download for fullsize btw, lots of detail.

Ey, I dunno if it's been evident or not but I'm a huge Warhammer (both Fantasy and 40K) and I've been painting for 10 years, something. My brother :iconspasmer: is the same way, this model is his and my creation.

This diorama depicts an epic battle out on the fenrisian seas between three Space Wolves, Olaf, Draug, Thori and a baby Kraken. When Games-Workshop Gothenburg announced that they were going to hold a painting contest I never thought twice about what I wanted to do. I really love the Space Wolves, I love fenris and I freaking love everything about what made me do this piece xD

We won the contest, btw.

The wave and the kraken were modeled with plasticlay, really cool material that. The octopus arms things were done in greenstuff and the boat was created using the sticks from icecreams.
Then I guess we painted it kinda cool, really wanted to make it more of a "cartoon"-ish feeling rather than ultra realistic, that's the way I always paint Warhammer btw.

Anyways, that's that, our sculpt. This is probably my first and last "real" Warhammer piece on deviantart, unless asked for. I think that sites like "Coolminiornot" is where things like that belong, my kraken is there aswell for those of you who'd like to rate it
I'll prolly update some more to that page in the future.



*Yes, I love Warhammer colors.
**You had to make the diorama on a "not bigger than a CD"-base, so we made this on a, actual CD xD

Meh, my dark Angels chapter could easily take at least two krakens down, (lion for the win!)

i love the ripper surfing on the wave. that was a good touch.
the rest is really good as well. you did a good job with the sculpting of the waves and the kraken, and the texture you painted on the kraken is great. you did a fine job. congrats on winning the contest; you deserved it.

OMG TYRANID KRAKEN!!!

lol this is such an epic piece! you really almost have to enter it for a GD competition... idk if its good enough to win, but it sure as hell is worth the try.

i really like the epic sea battle feeling! it really shows.... kind of get a moby dick feeling when i look at it....

the paintjob is really good! so is the modeling... the waves look really realistic.

really good job! +fav for you :)

Hi, glad you liked it! :D I did put alot of fan-detail in it, really wanted it to looks like a tyranid :)
People have been telling me about entering in the GD comp, haha, I did this...about 3 years ago, so, seeing I've evolved my paint style, I should probably do another take on it....

Whichm luckily, I will! :D Haha, look forward to Space Wolves Vs. Kraken II!

Thanks for the comment and the fav, means alot that this piece gets so many hits, it was made for the fans.

Haha, glad you like it :D I'm gonna do a better one in the future, probably gonna be something lik 40x40 and with a "real" Kraken, this is just a baby Kraken :) It's probably gonna be about 10 wolves fighting on the ice too :)

Haha, yup. Or well, that depends.... I actually looted the wooden piece it'll probabaly be based on from work when they were throwing old stuff out, and I've got a lot of wolf pieces, both old and new, just lying around. I'll prolly sculpt the kraken from pretty cheap clay, and the rest is just up to painting and glueing, both of which I've got a lot :D The ice, will probabaly be made out of polystuyrene pieces, and that's pretty cheap around here too :D

you can use the plastic from the blister packs for thin ice, the glue under it is effective at portraying air bubbles.

Nice tip! But I was thinking more like big meter thick chunks of polar ice on this one :D
