Geigor Fell-Hand was known as a valiant warrior, but his command record was marred by a history of reversals on the battlefield. The worst of these was on the world of Droggorn, where the Space Wolves were fighting alongside the Thousand Sons against orks. The Thousand Sons retreated in what Geigor considered an act of cowardice and betrayal, resulting in the death of his entire pack.
I bought the Battle of Prospero boxset quite a while ago now. I cut out and filed down all the pieces ready for assembly, but never got around to gluing anything together as I wanted to finish some other projects first before I added another wall of grey plastic to my shelves. That is apart from Greigor.
Greigor is one of my favorite Space Wolf characters. They didn't go too over the top on him, he's still very much just a marine, but he carries the same lightning claw as Bjorn, which was most likely meant for him. Being alive during the Horus Heresy he also has an older pattern of armour, although well decorated which helps to match him in with a more modern army.
The skull gives him the height needed to pick him out as a leader amongst a pack on the table and as always I really like the movement in the charging pose, he looks ready to leap at him next target with a frost weapon ready in each hand.
Fenrisian Grey is applied as an edge highlight and Blue Horror as an extreme edge highlight.
Ushabti Bone and Screaming Skull can be swapped out for Tyrant Skull and Terminatus Stone. For fur apply the shade more heavily in the center.
Alternatively use Zandri Dust, Reikland Fleshshade and Screaming Skull for a slightly different look.
Brighter colours should be applied where the light would reflect the most, or parallel to edges when painting pack markings on their shoulders.
Agrax Earthshade is thinned down and only applied to the deepest recesses. Carroburg Crimson is applied in the recesses around the eyes and nose.
I broke each side of the sword down into quarters, painting the sharpest part of the blade white, then each part further away a darker shade of blue. To blend each adjacent quarter I mixed the two paints together and applied it in the middle. I then repeated this over and over, always saving a bit of each mixture, until achieving a smooth transition. A final edge highlight of White Scar was applied.
For the plasma coil I also applied a wash of Drakenhof Nightshade after the base layer to create more of a contrast. The brighter blues and white were focused on the raised areas and towards the center of the coil. This could be reversed to create a different effect, with the inner coil being brighter showing the heat generated internally.
Mechanicus Standard Grey is applied as an edge highlight and Administratum Grey as an extreme edge highlight.
Screamer Pink, Emperor's Children and Nuln Oil can be used instead to differentiate from other reds.
I cast some Fantascape Glacial Ruins bases using Instant Mold & Milliput, then glued some sand around the edges, applying a second layer of watered down PVA to help it stuck.
The Seraphim Sepia was applied in patches to give a dirt stained look.
Finally, I applied some Mordheim Turf tufts and then a couple of layers of Deluxe's Scenic Snow.
I was surprised to find just how much decoration and detail the miniature has, mainly focused around the legs and on the frost claw arm. It means I was able to add a lot of colour, that goes nicely with the green gems that help to frame his face. I think the power weapons will also help to identify him from others, as those claws really are unique. I'd really like to see more unique styled weapons for heroes in the future!
