Games Workshop released the boxed game Overkill almost two years ago, with some fabulous sculpts for Deathwatch Space Marine armies. It took me a bit to convert over from vanilla Space Marines painted like Deathwatch, to an actual Deathwatch army, but once I did... it has been a lot of fun! Jetek Suberei, is the White Scar Biker sculpt that comes with the set. One of the things that makes him so cool, is the Deathwatch bike, with it's accompanying scroll-work and Inquisition iconography.
Since the release of the model, I have wanted to do another comparable build, using the model but making a space wolf, since much of the markings would work well with a grey hunter seconded into the Deathwatch. I had to be careful to not disrupt alot of the fine detail, so searching for the right bits did a little bit of doing, but I finally got around to it, and am pretty pleased with the result.
In a bit of a rush to get to work (so the pics are more amateurish), but I hope you like the finished product!!!
Jetek next to the converted Jarl Magnesun of the Ragnar Blackmane's Great Company!
Jarl, re-pleat with proper Space Wolf markings on his Deathwatch Bike!
All the proper Space Wolf shield, wolf-totems, and blades have been swapped out from the original model!
I used the torso and big, nasty, battle-axe from the Thudnerwolf Cavalry kit (had to work to locate one) in order to make it really appropriate! I also added another wolf totem above the neat Skyclaw chainsword I acquired!
I also added the Thuderwolf Cavalry head to the model, with the beard flowing in the wind to finish it off! Really enjoyed this project, and am very happy with the final product!
