I’ve had these wolf-kin on my painting table for at least a year. They were primed white and had a black wash and waited for some proper painting. I looked at a lot of photos of wolves and… well, they are rather difficult to paint as their coats are grey-brownish and not uniform. So the minis sat there waiting.

The other day a saw a pic of a wolf in winter-dress and that did it for me. I could paint my wolves for Frostgrave! Their winter pelts still have greys and browns in them and I got this by washing the minis with several coats of Army Painter Strong Tone and Dark Tone inks. Drybrushed white. Snouts black and also inside of ears and mouths/lips. (One of the wolves were previously painted dark grey and I washed it with Strong Tone and drybrushed)

The two slender Dire Wolves are from Otherworld (Wilderness Encounter series, WE8b, sculpted by Jo Brumby) while the other one is Reaper (Dark Heaven legends 03490 Warg by Jason Wiebe or plastic Bones 77202). Wolves and werewolf from the Castle Ravenloft boardgame.
