This 28mm scale Orr'ugs Wolf is produced by "Artisan Guild" and can be downloaded for free as part of a multi-piece set of STL (Standard Triangle Language) files from their "Patreon" subscription service, or alternatively bought via "MyMiniFactory" as part of the company's Nomad Orr'ugs range. The second of four different poses available, this impressive thick-coated steppe wolf is 83mm from nose to tail, and was produced using "Elegoo" Water Washable Resin on a Mars 3 Pro 3D Printer.
Permanently attached to a "Citadel" 50mm plastic circular base, the miniature was undercoated using a couple of layers of "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey, before being treated to some random applications of Sombre Grey and German Grey. The fearsome beast was then drowned in "Citadel" Nuln Oil and had all its detail 'brought back to life' via a simple make-up brush loaded with "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey, Sombre Grey or German Grey.
To better blend the different coloured areas together, I also took the time to allow the "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey to slightly 'snag' the edges of the animal's Sombre Grey hide, and likewise let the Sombre Grey dry-brush ocassionally drift over the German Grey areas too. Finally, I 'picked out' the beast's eyes using a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Red and "Citadel" Carroburg Crimson, and dabbed White Star by "Two Thin Coats" over all its teeth and claws. These parts were later dirtied up with a splodge or five of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade.
With my latest Orr'ugs Wolf finished, I've continued to busy myself with a number of 28mm scale figures produced by "Crooked Dice Game Design Studio". Some of these models, such as two partially-pigmented resin Titans, have rather embarrassingly been sat on my hobby desk for more months (if not years) than I care to remember. But have suddenly re-caught my imagination enough to warrant a serious dusting down with a make-up brush.
I actually finished a pair of these 45mm high "bronze behemoths" way back in March 2022, along with their even larger 'boss' Talos. However, despite buying two more of the miniatures, along with some separate Weapon Arms, I never got around to getting them tabletop ready until now. Resultantly, the giant robots have been cleaned-up, dry-brushed in "Vallejo" Bronze and weathered with “Citadel” Nihilakh Oxide. Once completed I fully intend to search out my mechanical Argonauts, and possibly bring an end to a project which has disappointingly sat dormant for many a moon.
In addition, I have also continued to prepare more of the Lincolnshire-based manufacturer's models for the annual Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge (AHPC). These figures are a mixture of old and new sculpts, and cover a range of genres like "Doctor Who", "Flash Gordon" and Martial Artists. I'm really hoping to get a good portion of this backlog done over the next three months - albeit for now, all of them have simply been based and primed ready for the AHPC's start on the 21st December...
