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.

Fire Raptor Gunship ‘Hrafnagud’

The Hrafnagud, translated in low-gothic means ‘Raven God’, and the Fire Raptor truely is a fearsome lord of the skies.

Favoured by the warriors of the Rout, the Fire Raptor Gunship is a close support aircraft armed with an incredible amount of fire power, capable of strafing the battlefield engaging armour and infantry alike.

Like the recently completed Spartans and Vindicator, the Fire Raptor has been finished in a muted colour scheme, epitomising the ‘storm grey’ of the Vlka Fenryka.

Armoured Reinforcements WIP

With the majority of the infantry done on the re-imagined wolves, attention turned to providing them with some tanks and fire support. The decision on what to add was fairly straight forward. Keen to keep the Vlka Fenryka as a heavily infantry based force, tank choice was prioritised to those units that would either transport infantry or directly support the theme of a fast assault force.

A pair of spartans were required to transport the two terminator units, with no other vehicle being able to match their transport capacity and surety of delivery. These would form the core of the armoured force.

Next up was the selection of a vindicator (with demolisher cannon), this seemed like a good fit with the fast moving force, the tank is aggressive, short to mid range with its primary weapon and feels like a homage to the battering rams employed in ancient sieges.  I added heresy-era tank tracks by Extra Armour (https://extra-armour.com/).

The final choice was a Fire Raptor, a close support gunship to give direct fire support to the infantry and assault tanks. The fire raptor has some fairly large gaps that required filling (the next step).

All in all these four armoured support units will form the core of the vehicle support for the Vlka Fenryka. All brutal and aggressive units that put themselves in harms way to support the infantry.

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!
