I think the axe is in the right place, based on the pictures you've taken.
I'm not too sure about a back-banner for a space wolf, as it seems unwieldy for a combat-focused space wolf/lone wolf.

it's been a while, mainly as i was Finishing A Sisters Army but i managed to get hte arm made for hte Space Wolf




debating if that's the right angle for his axe but where the dreadnought palm came off i'm limited to where his hand can go to cover the mark

once that's decided that'll affect the angle his head will sit at, and then i can sculpt his unkempt hair and beard

Also debating if i'm giving him a back banner - i did on an old SW conversion and quite fancy the idea but only the Word Bearer has one at the moment - let me know what you think

Thanks Gav for the pad-supply, Iíll be using it for his left arm once it arrives (the below is just blu-tack at present)

Pose all sorted though!






Heís on a 50mm base and feels stable enough - fingers crossed.
Always forget how tall the model is - perfectly scaled marine compared to the 28mm ones

"Did you see what he brought out of storage? I've heard stories about that thing, gives me the creeps, should have been destroyed years ago but people keep it around like some kinda talisman"

Inquisition Asset 14-Sigma-Delta

Originally brought into Inquisition service by Inquisitor Gabriella Cordona of the Ordo Xenos, Asset 14-SD is a Luther-pattern excavation automata - an "ambot" - that she requisitioned to aid her team in uncovering Aeldari artefacts long buried under an Imperial church, thought to be the source of several "blessings" reported to have taken place there.

Although originally tasked with that one goal, Gabriella found the construct to be versatile and useful in her goals, particularly when brute force was required but the forces of the Deathwatch were reticent to aid someone of her radical reputation. The Ambot was robust, versatile and utterly, utterly loyal.

Following the Inquisitor's untimely demise during an ideological dispute with her disgruntled peers, her accumulated assets were reclaimed and placed into Inquisition service. While 14-SD was destined to be returned to mining duties, an enterprising interrogator instead had the machine shipped to one of the Carthax sector's many Inquisition facilities for long term storage.

Since then Inquisitors of all Ordos and ideological leanings have found use for the lumbering behemoth, with some modifying the unit for their intended purposes or adding their own mark on the asset before it is returned to the vaults awaiting the next time it is awakened from its slumber to do the Emperor's Work.

Among other Inquisition agents, however, it has a darker reputation. Some whisper that the Ambull brain inside the machine has grown more cunning during its long incarceration, asserting control beyond what the Inhibitor chips would normally allow. Others still postulate that through contact with some Xenos artefact or malignant warp-influence the machine has gained a glimmer of sentience, some foul will of its own by which it enacts its own plans.

Whatever the truth, Asset 12-Sigma-Delta appears content to bide its time for now, acting like any good Construct and obeying the orders of its controller as expected.
at least, until the inhibitors are turned off

Progress! (And messy desk)

top carapace needs doing, head needs to be glued on and some more bronze accents need to be added. I printed some shoulder armour to bulk him out but I'm wavering on whether I should use them or not

was tempted with the shield but as a marine with nothing left he's eschewed protection and loaded himself up with ammo for headlong charge into the biggest monster he can find :)



slight bit of work in i decided as he's separated form the chapter he's got a blank pad, draped with a skull + fur

I'm following Jes' original theory with the Space Wolf kits - you'd dilute them with stock marine boxes for some SW details but still recognisable as a marine - something people quickly forgot when using just SW boxes for all the extra wolf wolf wolf crap you see these days! 

not sold on the pose as yet - i'm hoping the size of the axe should help balance the pose out - otherwise i'll tip him forward more for a more berserk headlong charge!

i've always wanted one but a friend (who's a model maker by trade) upgraded his Elegoo MARs P to a bigger one so i got it for crazy cheap :)
took alot of learning and tweaks to get the setting right but having fun with it - not really done much for inquisitor other'n Artel's not-seer and boneshees

Gav! should have known you couldn't resist the 3D printer crew

It's discrete components. several of them. the legs are a pig to put together

i'm a recent 3D printer purchaser myself - a whole load of 3D files collated over hte year :lol:

Inquisitor is an odd one for scaling - some stuff scales up easily but others come out too small

was that a single print or done in components?
