Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPVash 07-24-2010

as i said in my general conversion thread, i'm going to try a different approach to wolfriders. i'm going to make them in line with Bullcentaurs, and mount the upperbody of a goblin on the body of a giant wolf. this will also be a step by step thread, showing how i made the models.
i first made a concept model, using a dire wolf and some unlucky goblin leftovers. i posted the model in my other thread, but here it is again as comparison materialTongue




first, i assembeld the 2 halves of the wolve... nothing fancy there. i then cut off a piece of sprue as a mounting point for the goblin body and glued it into the place were the wolves head normaly goes. and filled up the area around the piece of sprue to become furr.



then i sculpted the furr on his back


then i had some dinner (pizza Cheers!) and a shower. after that i went back to the model and started the front. first, i cut away the bulge on which the head of a goblin goes on... one should do this earlier in the process but i only saw the problem now.i wanted to give him a simular six-pack like look as the rest of my hobgoblins. first i filled out the chest and belly area with some extra greenstuff. i made a line across the area from top to bottom which was middleline of the muscles. then i sculpted the abs and chest area. the head is not yet glued in place.


after that, i sculpted the rest of the furr around the belly, chest and sides of the body.



and then i called it quits for so far. it still needs some work where the head will go and where the arms go, but i need to let this dry for a night at least.
a small side question, what is the best use for wolfriders?? using them as fast archers, light cavalry with spears and shields (they loose their fast cavalry with the shields) or fast cavarly with just spears... or spears and bows (if possible).

RE: Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPVash 07-25-2010

always nice to hear that their are other people with crazy ideasHappy. i still have a few empire militia torsos lying around somewhere... but that would mean i have some models with and some without the sixpack look that my hobgoblin infantry has.

i have a small update, i sculpted the furr on the back of another 4 models... i always like sculpting furr, especialy on the older GW models, because it's fairly easy and the result looks pretty good. it a shame not a lot of other armies i play need furr sculptingHappy

Nice work and a cool cncept. I've thought about doing something similar for my WoC army, making centaurs out of marader horsemen. Can't wait to see more of these.

RE: Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPVash 07-26-2010

at the moment i have 4 torsos sculpted... still unsure about the armament though. i asked a friend and his answer was inconclusive. he saw both the bennifits of spears or bows. as with 8 ed. one can shoot a lot more... having a 10 man unit with bows as fastcavalry is a huge plus now.

another option is to magnetise the bodies and weapon arms, as the spear/bow arm are the same side... anybody know where to get magnest from that are that small?

Ebay, neodymium magnets are the best. Wink

Very nice.  I much prefer the hobhounds with the regular wolf bodies to the dire wolves.

RE: Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPDa Crusha 07-27-2010

I magnetized all of my Hobgoblin wolf riders with rare earth magnets so that I can use with or without the riders. I dont remember the exact type of metal it is but I remember buying them as "rare earth magnets".

I also did this with an entire unit of 6th ed. dwarfs so that they would have interchangeable right arms, either hand weapons, great weapons, or crossbows.

They normally go for a couple of pounds for enough to do a couple of big units on ebay

RE: Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPVash 07-27-2010

ok, thanks guys... for as far as i know, rare earth magnets is the term for the substance they use to make them, although there might be a scientific name for offcourse. i'll have a look on ebay.

so do i, but i needed a test first to see what a wolfbody and a goblin torso would look like when stuck together in this configuration.

i'm also thinking of making a Hero/Lord on a Wharg using a chaos hound as a body and some empire militia torso (the one with the long coat). and convert some crazy large pointy hat on top Happy

Out of curiosity dude what did you do with all the wolf heads? I'm planning some werewolf conversions they'd be handy for...

RE: Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPVash 07-27-2010

for now... nothing to be honest. and there's a large change that won't be needing them at all, as i don't play any other army using wolfs (well... space wolves, but i don't need those heads for them).
if interested, send me a PM and we can work something out Happy... i also have some dire wolf heads left from other converion work.

i now have 5 bodies done... and started with assembling the others. unfortunatly, only 9 wolves were in the box... so the shop has to find me a 10th to complete the unit.
i've also been searching for some magnets... but what size is best. one seller i found had them with a diametre of 2mm (about 1/8th of an inch i believe) and 1mm thick (less thick then 1/16th, if i calculated right). they were the smallest i could fing

small update on this project. i've finished the first of the wolf centaurs. i magnetized the weapon arms, so i can easily change from spears to bows.

RE: Hobgoblin Wolfcentaur WIPVash 08-08-2010

that was a really good advice, thanks again for it. i'm now using magnets on other models too (like my daemonsmith that shoots a daemonhead out of his hand). i bought 100 of them and i think i might need more in the long run.

thanks, i too want to paint them. but i have to old back on that for now. i want to finish some other conversions first and then try to paint a small army in one go. once i've cleared my mind of most of the crazy conversion ideas i can focus on painting better.
