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.

Deathsworn Pack, The Black Cull

Within the Vlka Fenryka, those warriors plagued by dreams of the Death Wolf begin to lose their sanity, the all-consuming impulse to kill and kill again grows within them. These warriors are selected by the Speakers of the Dead, inducted into the Cult of Morkai and become the Deathsworn. These warriors who give themselves over became the a cursed and honoured brethren; marked by their wolf-skull helms, they are the embodiment of the hunger of death in the heart of the Legion and walk to war to earn an honourable death.

The Deathsworn kit is fanastic, including a wealth of parts and options:

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!

The Black Cull, Deathsworn, Cult of Morkai… the wolf waits in the darkness for us all!

The Deathsworn are the dark heart of the sixth legion, a curse that if left unchecked would one day find it’s vent in the transformation of flesh, seeing a warrior truely succumb to the call of Morkai.

2017-03-20 13.23.31

Out of all the twenty legions born from the All-Father’s machinations none understood death as well as the Vlka Fenryka, for they were his axe, his will made manifest and always on the cutting edge. Those warriors for whom the toll of war became consuming, those whom let their predatory urge to kill, and kill again, taint their very souls were taken to the priests. The Speakers of the Dead took their oaths, inducted them into the Cult of the Deathwolf, Morkai, and saw them unleashed to find solace in a good death, a death welcomed with axe in hand.

Until Next Winter…

Deathsworn

Deathsworn, the Black Cull, the Curse of Morkai…

2017-03-11 15.16.00

Those wolf-brothers whose dreams stray to blood lust and the whispers of the beast within fight apart from their breathren, seeking death in battle whilst control is still theirs. These tireless hunters, slayers of the rout, are lead into battle by the Speakers of the Dead, Fenrisian Priests who see the warriors into the Legion and give them peace upon the red snow.
