Wolf Thunder Warriors

Originally I bought the Aurlok set because of their toad thunder warriors. They are gorgeous miniatures and very relevant to a few scenarios I have in mind for the game. This set also contained other miniatures that go together with the toad warriors in the Alkemy game: the crow thunder and wolf thunder warriors. However, I wasn't planning of lining them up in the same army as they look very different, but I didn't want to dismiss them either.
So I decided to start painting the wolf thunder models, even without knowing exactly how to use them in Forge Quest. They were fairly straight forward and allowed me to do some experiments with the dark skin and its different layers and highlights. I found the combination of dark flesh with grey very useful to give the kind of effect I was looking for in the skin.
In the end, I was quite happy with the result and will look forward to painting the remaining Aurlok miniatures.


  1. Kind of weird looking but I really like the poses... and the paint job isn't half bad either.

  2. I know. Very weird looking minis. But very good models. Maybe it didn't help that I used a different paint scheme from the official colours of the manufacturer. I guess I could use them as hill dwellers, or something...
