10,000 Points!!

While the army development has been almost exclusively honed around the narrative of the overall force, building claws and unit configurations to represent an interpretation of the lore and background, the opportuinity to celebrate 10,000 points was too good an oportunity to pass up.

Flesh-smiths and Gene-weavers – 6th Legion Apothecarion Detachment

Among every legion of the Adeptus Astartes exist a core of warriors charged with the maintenance of of physical health and medical duties required for the combatant force to function. Within most legions this is known as the Apothecarion, as set out in the Principia Belicosa. Among the more divergent Legions there are variations upon this, but the core duties and role remains the same; genetically engineer and raise warriors from recruits, husband their development into functioning Astartes warriors and tend to their continued function until death takes them, upon which time their geneseed is to be harvested and the cycle begins again.

Among the Vlka Fenryka these individuals, who form the medical core of the Legion, are inductees of the Cult of Morkai. This cult within the Legion encompasses a great many differing disciplines of war, ritual and superstition, all linked to the Death Wolf, Morkai. These warriors go under a great many names within the legion; Gene-wights, flesh-makers, thread-menders and gene-smiths to name but a few. The majority of these are warriors and combatants alongside their medical role, accompanying the Legion into every theater of war.

WIP Flesh Makers [Legion Apothecaries]

A key mechanism of my army of Vlka Fenryka on the tabletop is their speed, this couldn’t be more true than with the Grey Slayer Packs. As such i do not attach any characters to my packs except Geigor Fell-Hand who can also move, run and charge. The recent Errant and FAQ published by Forge World has changed everything! Apothecaries now gain Warrior’s Mettle with the Pack they are attached to.

Acquiring the Narthecium Gauntlet from the Grey Knight Terminators made for an straight forward conversion, chopping it back suitably to fit MkIII power armour

Three flesh-makers to accompany the Grey Slayer Packs. All armed with Power Swords to add some extra punch to the units they accompany. Decided to use the Deathsword pauldrons with the Cult of Morkai symbol on them to tie the Speaker of the Dead, the Apothecaries and the Black Cull together.

While creating these unit support units, a fourth was built, in MkIV plate and with jump pack to accompany the recently finished assault squad. Again armed with power sword.

The Cult of Morkai symbol was carefully cut from the Deathsworn Pauldron for use on the MkIV armour.

Vlka Fenryka 6000pts

Time seems to have passed at a such a considerable rate since this project was begun in April of 2016, so much so that a ‘whole army’ picture has failed to happen. So having broken the 6000pts threshold (6081pts to be exact) the warriors of the Rout have been assembled!

Apothecaries Helfdane and Andhrimnir, Flesh-Makers, Soul-Keepers.

Within the Rout there are two kinds of priests, those that deal in Wyrd and fates and those that bond flesh and keep the legion’s souls. Helfdane and Andhrimnir are the latter kind, technically, although their day duties are more in line with a legion apothecary that a priest. Both Flesh-Makers work under more senior Priests, true gene-weavers.

It is the duty of the Rout’s flesh-makers to not only tend to the wounded in battle but to extract the legion souls of those fallen warriors, so they may serve the legions still.
