With Hvarl Red-Blade previewed and added to the list of future acquisitions for the Rout, design and planning has commenced on a Tartaros command squad to accompany the Jarl. With the Cataphractii Varagyr’s aesthetic differing from the standard legion pattern and many of these design cues reflected within Hvarl’s Tartaros armour, it seems only fitting that the Tartaros Command Squad accompanying Hvarl should be equally representative.
Comparing the standard legion pattern of Tartaros Terminator Armour with Hvarl’s battle plate the following alterations are required;
- Torso; the raised gorget is to be lowered and lined with a studded decorative plate.
- Totems & Fetishes; The addition of rune stones, wolf tooth trinkets and similar decoration is required.
- Leg Armour; Pyramid shaped molecular bonding studs are required on the shin armour.
- Fur; the addition of wolf pelts and fur adornment.
These changes will help create a set of Tartaros Terminator armour that reflects the design cus of both the Varagyr and Hvarl Red-Blade.
The gorget on the Tartaros torso was cut down and replaced with the arch from the Cataphractii plate, creating a lowered and suitably decorated gorget in the style of Hvarl’s.
The legs were adorned with pyramid rivets (a one off gift from a friend), wolf skull decoration, strapped on with greenstuff and sculpted fur pteruges.
Totems and Decoration
The torso’s have been further enhanced with sculpted necklacess of wolves teeth and rune stones.
Studs were added to the shoulder pauldrons of those terminators that don’t have them on their leg armour.
Until Next Winter…
