I made an order from Alternative Armies a few months ago and realised that I still had my old "Ion Age" points saved up. I really liked the Beotan werewolves I got last year, so I used the points to add a few more.
2 of the wolves were duplicates (1st & 3rd from left above), but the other 3 were new poses. All were painted in the same colour scheme as the original 5. To start with, I added a further heavy weapon trooper. I particularly liked this pose, it reminds me of my favourite Space Marine heavy weapon trooper from the 1989 Citadel catalogue.

Another Maia machine pistol adds to the rank and file troops. He's a suitable aggressive looking beast.
The commander has a nifty visor and a nice cloak to matk out his importance to enemy snipers. I thought that a blue cloak would contrast well with the paler, earthier colours of the fur and harness.
Given the rough appearance of the cloak, rather than keeping it crisp and clean, I used a bit of earthy colour around the bottom edge.
This gives me a pack of 10 werewolves, a wider choice for Rogue Stars but also enough for a pack of ferals in 5 Parsecs from home. They'll also be useful as extra tough troops for Tomorrow's War.
