Legion Veterans WIP

Within the composition of the army and creating rosters for games, the Primarch Leman Russ is proving to be a tricky character to field. While his battlefield role as an executioner of characters is clear, his placement within a roster is less clean cut. From a narrative perspective it seems logical to field him with Varagyr Terminators, although their lack of maneuverability and limitations on sweeping advance restrict Russ’ potential. Thus the role falls to the Legion Veterans (listed under Russ’ rules as representing his Wolf Guard), who have access to Warriors Mettle as a Legion specific optional upgrade. A rule that is unusable once Russ is attached to the unit. Thus the logical option to take for the Legion Veterans is ‘Weapon Masters’ raising the units Weapon Skill to 5, matching the Varagyr.

From a modelling perspective, the unit has been created from MkIII Iron Armour marines, combined with elements of the Grey Slayer Upgrade Kit and the Legion Upgrade Torsos. The axes are from the formally available MkIII weapons upgrades kit, trimmed to only have a single blade.

Until Next Winter…
