Forsaetid Radherja, Primaris, Dark Imperium

The Forsaetid Radherja, or as they are more commonly known: Primaris Space Marines, are those newly forged warriors that were assigned to the Vlka Fenryka to bolster their forces, integrated into the Rout and its ways to fight alongside the established wolf-brothers.

A peculiarity that sets the Vlka Fenryka’s Primaris Marines apart from others of their kind is that those would-be warriors who were selected for Cawl’s experimentations in that time so very long ago were, like their brothers, children of Fenris. Abducted from their birth world under the sanction of the Wolf-King at the behest of Lord Guilliman. Three raiding parties from the southern ice plane tribes settled in for another cold winter night and ceased to exist before the dawn, an act never committed to the sagas, and forgotten to the passing of time.

Those warriors taken from the ice world would not set foot upon Fenris for another ten millennia.

The literal translation of Forsaetid Radherja from the Fenrisian tongue into high-gothic is ‘Justian Seraphus’ or ‘Angel of Judgement’ in low gothic, but the phrase in Fenrisian mythology in fact has duel meanings. The first meaning, as the varying gothic translations reflect, is that the Forsaetid Radherja are the spiritual keepers of the Underverse, who’s role is to ensure that justice is served upon the souls of the dead at their time of passing, inflicting great tortures and providing protection in equal measure dependent upon a mortal’s actions in life. The second meaning is ‘Unjust Executioner’, a feared mantle placed upon a tribe member who takes justice into their own hands, to stray from the tribe’s laws and be given this title is damning and considered a poor omen.

The mantle was given to the newly inducted Primaries Astartes during the opening actions of their first major engagement. Such was the effectiveness of the Primaris Astartes, Jarl Grimnar likened the ferocity of the Imperium’s new super-soldiers to an angelic host serving justice upon souls found wanting.

Until Next Winter…

    Love the way you’ve brought the old and new Marines together. Can’t wait to see how they turn out.

    Your work is inspiring!


    • Cheers bud, i really see this is an opportunity to reforge the 40k wolves more in line with my preferences and give them a stronger tie to their legion.
      Until Next Winter…


      • I’ve been trying to work out how to incorporate them into my Rout, and you have just given me the way.
        What does Forsaetid Radherja mean? Sorry for the noob question!


      • haha, I’m yet to decide its exact meaning!

        I’ve made it up to signify the Primaris Force, i have a couple of ideas that i’ve not fleshed out yet which will confirm it’s meaning in low-gothic, until then just think of it as ‘Primaris Marines’ in Jurvik.

        Until Next Winter…
