    Space Wolves paint Color

    I am starting a new army of Space Wolves and I am a bit confused after reading the Codex.

    The Codex said that all Armour is grey in color, but in the pictures in the codex the Rhinos look to be space wolves grey and the land raider and LR Exterminator look to be grey.

    If someone could help me out please. I have space wolves grey and some other grey's I use on tanks.

    Thanks for the help.

    Don't think it's important on what grey you use. Just make sure to use a greyish color.

    My personal favorite is for a darker grey over a black undercoat, drybrushing progressively lighter coats. I prefer this to the lighter wolves.

    Really it does not matter, if you like space wolves gery better, use it, but it is better to start dark, black, codex grey, fortress and then space wolves grey. The vehicles might be a slightly different colour and thats normal, they were painted by different people ovr a time span, so none of them wil be exactly the same in painting style.

    I still like the old colour scheme which was a shadow grey base coat, highlighted with space wolves grey.

    Old Space Wolves

    Back in the time of the Rogue Trader (yes I am that old) Space Wolves were GREY! but at some point in the early 90's they became blue grey? but in recent times they are becoming more blue so I think as long as you keep em a blue grey it does not really matter.

    I did Space wolves back in the Rogue Trader days and painted them dark grey and dry brushed them light grey, they looked like they were made of stone lol very cool for the late 80's hehehe

    Yes the Sw's are now shadow grey!!! With a space wolfs grey highlights...
    I say paint it the same colour you paint your army, who cares how GW paints their models, you want your army to be different from theirs right?

    Some tips:
    Nobody, well...a lot of Sw players I know, don't use that colour scheme anymore because:
    1. Everyone uses it and its too original
    2. Doesn't look right on SW's
    3. Its crap

    Instead, we use codex grey which gives it a more SW feel and the colour looks better on them. Topping that off, we put fortress grey highlights on the model, and it looks fantastic!!

    The shadow grey/Sw grey looks too original, if you want an army to personalize and look better, go witht he codex grey.fortress scheme.

    Or if your the kind of person who wants to have the same SW scheme that everyone else has, go with the shadow grey/SW scheme.

    Hope that helps

    By the way, it doesn't really matter what colour grey you paint your tanks, just make sure it look Wolfy!!

    Since the 13th company was released I have seen a lot more greyish SWs. Which is good becuase the gre , dirty scheme is a lot cooler.

    I've given mine a Bluis grey look through mixing shadow grey and space wolf grey. In the end it gives them a fairly blue colour, but I like the way they look, and it's very different from any other space wolf army I've seen. Mostly because my painting style is so odd.
