This is from Gospog over on minirealms:

I've always been a big fan of his work.

I replied on minirealms, but I'll say it again, it's fantastic.

That's lovely - I wonder what werewolf-type action figure he used as the basis of the model?

I've flaked out on you.  Yes, it's true.  I've been using the Mordheim "The Thing in the Woods" from GW for my Totems.  I was going to lop off its head and try to find wolf heads, but so far have not.  It's not too late though.  If I see some Chaos hound heads that would fit this, I can still do it as the models are only primed black.  I actually like the model as is, which, for a conversion nut like me is rare.  The model has a nice look to it, and even though it has one head, it's the perfect size, and with it's slavering jaws with protruding saber tooth bones, looks like a beast with two natural attacks.  That Totem from Gospog is great work, and actually resembles more closely the art from the source material, but I like something more wolf-like, less upright.

What art are you refering to Josh?  There's a small pic along the bottom of the first 50 or so pages of the 2nd ed rulebook.  The only artwork I've seen has depicted a 20 foot tall 2 headed wolf.  I've never seen the wolf totem upright.  Check out pic 008 and 011 here:

It was Coil or Coki who shot me the link on this forum.  I'll have to dig deep Matt and find it.  What you've shown is exactly what we're looking for.  The art of the Totem upright was really crap bananas in my opinion, and what we're seeing from your link is the way to go.

Cheers.

That's the one!!  The one at the bottom.  I like the art links Matt posted better, but that's the one I was referring to.  Thanks as always Andy.  You're one bad mutha.

Cheers.
