In order to meet the Force Selection requirements of needing to have either a Praetor or Thegn in every army, as well as having to have a HQ choice for every 1000pts of the army, it was time to bulk out the compulsory options to prepare for more campaign games. Specifically to create a centurion that would run thematically within the same force as the mighty Hvarl Red-Blade.
Using a standard plastic Tartaros Terminator as a base, shoulder pauldrons have been swapped in from the Geigor plastic kit, trimming one up and re-setting the shoulder shield to face forwards. A head swap gives the model some instant character and a large wolf pelt has been created to drape over the armour (this is a nice through back to the original inspiration for this force: https://vlkafenrykablog.wordpress.com/2016/09/06/inspiration-and-nostalgia/). The cape underneath has been cut from the Lord of Contagion model from Dark Imperium.
The spike with skull on top of the torso armour represent’s Hvarl Red-Blade’s reputation as a head-taker, a reputation that extends to his great company.
The Thegn will be armed with a chain fist and a combi-plasma keeping him simple but extremely potent when accompanying a squad.
Until next Winter…
