Thegn Leif Uhtredsson ‘warmonger’

Thegn Leif Uhtredsson ‘warmonger’, Second to Hvarl Redblade, Sepp Company.

The ‘jarl-apparant’ of Sepp Company, Uhtredsson is afforded the favour of Hvarl Redblade and earn’s his place with bloody sweeps of his axe and claws.

Design Note: using the Geigor model as a base (the armour is suitably ornate to represent artificier plate) and changing the weapons to suit the desired wargear loadout, the sihouette has been subtley altered with more conventional pauldrons and a MkIV helm.

Long Blade Pack (Flamer Support)

Support Squad Jorlund, Sepp Company
Hvarl’s company are typified by flame and destruction, never more literally than by the devastating flamer sections.

Design note: keen to find a suitable heresy era name for the 30k equivalent of Long Fangs. Taking cues from 40k units to similar Heresy units, Grey Hunters are Grey Slayers, Blood Claws are Storm Claws.
So the established convention is to retain one element of the name and switch to an alternative, after discussion with the community and much deliberation I have settled upon Long Blades. This epitaph will be adopted for all support and heavy weapon units.

Legion Sabre Strike Tank Squadron

Fast, rugged and heavily armed, the Sabre serves the Vlka Fenryka as a strike tank, attacking key enemy targets and destroying them long before they can pose a threat to the Rout’s furious advance. The speed of these vehicles allows them to evade any counter-attack and reform to strike at the vulnerable flanks of the enemy army, keeping the heavy armour suppressed.

Runewatchers (Nullificator Squad)

Within the war-host of the Vlka Fenryka there are those warriors who stand apart, inductees of the Fenrisian cults, priests in training and in more rare cases fated individuals who’s wyrd has set them upon a differing path to that of their battle brothers. It is common for these individuals, as a rare as they are, to be adopted into the services of the Priests of Fenris. It was within the ranks of these unofficial appointments and divergent elements of the Rout that the formation of the Nullificators stemmed, specifically among the Rune Watchers who served as guards and adjutants to the Rune Casters, clad in bone white armour and daubed in runic inscriptions and talismans. As the daemonic threats grew and the Gothi turned their attention to combating the nether-born menace, these warriors took to the field alongside their masters, their ranks bolstered with other inductees chosen by the Priests. Trappings of protection adorned these warriors in the form of inscribed runic designs, bone talismans and charms of precious stones and metals. It was the power embodied in these Hexagrammatic wards that although pagan in appearance, gave them the protection they needed to face the maleficarum head on. While few of these valiant warriors would survive, the wisdom bought with their lives armed their successors all the better and by the final years of the Horus Heresy, the newly codified Nullificators had become a highly disciplined arm of the Legions, the Rune Watchers of the Sixth Legion being counted among their numbers.

The colour scheme for this unit was derived from a fantastic piece of lore in the book Wolf King, were the Rune Priest Kva is protected by a bodyguard of two warriors clad in bone-white armour etched with runes. Nullificators were the perfect opportunity to bring this concept to the table.

Extracts from Wolf King, by Chris Wraight;

‘The first two down the ramp were warriors in bone-white Mark II Legion armour, the overlapping plates covered in black-inked runes. They bore images of Morkai on their breastplates and carried long-handled, single-bladed axes the length of force halberds.’

‘One of the Runewatchers raised his axe, ready to bring it down across the warrior’s neck.’

Gothi (Primus-Nullificators)

With the increase in uncontrollable occurrences of Daemonic incursion across the galaxy, and the unimaginable threat they posed, the Jarls of the Rout turned to their Rune Casters for solutions. The Rune Priests employed their wisdom of arcane and superstitious means to counter the little-understood threat. So, it came to pass that the Gothi of the Vlka Fenryka focussed their attentions on the combat of maleficarum in all its abhorrent forms, delving more deeply than they had previously dared into the wellsprings of their power in hope of salvation. But the Priests of Fenris stood not alone, for in other Legions, psychically gifted pioneers sanctioned research into esoteric artefacts and weapons, and openly sought prohibited lore in the hope that it would provide wisdom capable of combatting the galaxy’s intangible horrors.

These commanders, who would be later codified as first among the Nullificators, forged an example that would be adopted across all the loyal legions. Thus, the rank of Primus Nullificator was born, albeit terminology that would never be adopted by the Sixth Legion, making no visible distinction between their Rune Priests.
