Geigor Fell-Hand

This was a fun little project that I painted as a gift for a friend.

Sculpted by Darren Latham for the Burning of Prospero box, Geigor Fell-Hand is my first ever Space Wolf (only taken me 24 years to get round to it!). Loads of cool details on this: wolf pelts, armour trim, plenty of weapons, gems… I particularly enjoyed painting the face for some reason – I don’t recall ever painting a mini with sculpted eyebrows before, but it was great!

I aimed for a fairly ‘Eavy Metal style with true metallics and lots of edge highlighting. I believe that technically heresy era Space Wolves are supposed to have a neutral grey armour but I wanted to paint it closer to the 40k scheme, so I ended up with a kind of halfway house with a bluish grey. I took inspiration from an old ‘Eavy Metal masterclass by Neil Green and went with red hair and yellow trim rather than the blond and red from the box art.

I added some damage to armour in the places where it was most likely to occur: more on the front than the back and plenty around the lightning claw and the bottom of the boots. Not many opportunities for freehand on this mini, but I was at least able to paint his name onto the claw!

  1. Very nice, I’m painting a Space Wolf army myself do you mind sharing the paints you used on the armor? I’m trying to get that nice pale blue effect.

    1. Basecoat was an amazingly complicated mixture of 1:1:1:2 shadow grey (citadel), kommando khaki (citadel), ghost white (reaper) and rainy grey (reaper)! I highlighted with ghost white and white and shaded with 1:1 shadow grey (citadel) and scorched brown (citadel) and black.

      Hope you have an extensive paint collection. 🙂
