So here is a unit I've been working on for quite awhile.....I know many people are not huge fans of 4th ed figures...but one range I've always appreciated are the excellent goblin wolf riders...they are full of character and there are 16 unique sculpts so there is plenty of variety.
One problem though....the god awful plastic wolves they came with....I hate these almost as much as I hate the plastic boars from this period.
So I set myself the goal of assembling alternative wolves for these bad boys. As the riders are slightly larger than their earlier citadel and marauder brethren I needed to find some slightly larger wolves for them to ride.
A couple of months ago I stumbled on a good solution...the wolves from the old Goblin War Chariots. They are slightly bigger than the old mounts for the citadel and marauder wolf riders and they look pretty tough...take a look
Particularly when compared to the plastic crap versions
After a couple of lucky purchases on eBay and the Facebook trading page I was able to assemble 14 of these old wolves....I think they will work perfectly!
Here are a couple of shots of the unit as it stands now. I need to find 4 more of these wolves to finish the unit and ...resupply my chariot! So if you have a couple laying around please drop me a note....anyway...to the pictures!
I think they look perfect and now I can field my 4th ed wolf riders with pride!
...just have to paint them...first...sigh.
