Developing a new consul to lead the Rout, a Thegn or Claw Leader to lead a detachment under the Jarl. With the first Claw complete (3x Packs of 15 Grey Slayers), this will form the start of the second claw, a fast attack and assault orientated detachment. This thegn will be equipped with an Jump Pack, keeping him fast and at pace with the troops.
Proposed wargear and selection:
- Legion Champion Consul
- Artificer Armour
- Paragon Blade
- Jump Pack
- Refractor Field
To forge this champion, i have selected to use the Geigor model as a base, mostly as its ornate and detail totems lend to representing Artificer Armour. In order to adapt it to the correct and established aesthetic for Astartes with Jump Packs, the torso armour has been over-clad with additional plating (to match the MkIV Assault Marines).
The over armour was adorned with a wolf tooth/totem necklace from the Primaris Upgrade sprue.
The plan for the paragon blade is to use a combination of weapons to represent it, rather than a single prestigious blade. Taking reference from vikings in filmography, a long knife and axe will be the matched pair of weapons to represent the Paragon Blade, this will be complimented with a holstered bolt-pistol.
The blade was made from the hand and haft of a MkIII Thunder Hammer, clipped below the head. The Blade is from the Traitor Cataphractii Librarian, the serrated blade and patterning complimenting the Wolves’ aesthetic. The arm was built from a second set of Geigor’s arms, the left arm cut off below the elbow to remove the frost claw, and replaced with a carefully trimmed vambrace from Geigor’s right arm. This keeps continuity in the armour’s detailing, matching the two vambraces with the rest of the armour.
Until Next Winter…
