Varagyr Wolf Guard Terminators WIP 07

With the arrival of chain axes from Forge World the Varagy are nearly there, just awaiting some chain sword arms now. The proportions of these axes are so much better than those used previously, not just in that the hands scale better with the armour but the scale of the weapon itself.

The four additional Varagyr have should pauldrons modeled to match those in Inferno, Book VII, by Forge World. The spikes (kindly given to me by another) are from the Slaanesh Greater Daemon by Forge World. The spikes have been added to each pad in threes. Top knots to match the Visions of Heresy artwork have been obtained, through the careful cutting of ork heads.

Frost Claws have been created by clipping the talons from the plastic claw supplied with Geigor Fell-Hand and used to replace those on the lightning claws. Additionally the leather pteruges have been trimmed to form a base for greenstuff fur.

The four additional terminators are equipped with chain fists, frost claws and heavy weapons to bring greater flexibility to the proposed squads. The Reaper Autocannon and Heavy flamer each having their merits.

The four additions compliment the previously constructed Varagyr, increasing each squad to number seven models.Those without weapons below will be equipped with Frost Axes and Frost Blades in due course.

The axes and swords previously used on the models, as seen on earlier Varagyr posts have been removed as better options have been found and will be shown in future posts.

One of the Varagyr Thegns has been equipped with a particularly fine Thunder Hammer, taken from the Limited Edition Cataphractii Praetor.

Thegn Brodya Iron-Bane, Claw Leader

Thegn and Claw Leader in Hvarl Red-Blade’s Great Company, Brodya Iron-Bane is a headstrong warrior and the very epitome of ferocity in war. A tank hunter through and through the Thegn is known for near reckless charges against enemy armour and walkers alike. It is this ceaseless pursuit of armoured foes that earned Brodya his deed name of ‘Iron-Bane’.

A chosen warrior of Hvarl Red-Blade’s war-counsel, Brodya is an example of balance in conflicting views, his violent and impulsive outbursts are the polar opposite of Thegn Sveric Vyardsson’s measured advice.

Hvarl Red-Blade’s Huscarls, Varagyr Command.

Hvarl Red-Blade treads the battlefield in the company of his Varagyr elite, terminator amour clad Huscarls of formidable reputation, head takers and bloodied warriors all.

 

Rethel, Birgun, Ulric, Bjornsson and Osiric all born of Fenris and proven champions of the rout, bloody and unyielding sagas shadow their footsteps, footsteps that bring with them the promise of unrelenting sanction and death to the All Farther’s foes. If Hvarl Red-Blade’s saga is one of fear and overkill his Huscarl’s each boast deeds as bloody and uncompromising.

The Tartaros Terminators of Hvarl’s Command Squad have been equipped with a selection of weapons including a Power Fist, Chain Fist, 3 Lightning Claws, Plasma Blaster and 4 Combi-Bolters. The Terminators have added pelts, trinkets and fetishes and a more lavish use of bronze and brass to make them stand out against the Legion Terminator Squads.

Thegn Sveric Vyardsson, ‘the old wolf’

Thegn and Claw Leader in Hvarl Red-Blade’s Great Company, Vyardsson is one of the Routs oldest warriors, save for the venerable Ulvurul Heoroth and a select few senior warriors in the wolf king’s Varagyr. Vyardsson’s reputation rides the same wyrd as his Jarl, a head taker and scourge of the Imperium’s foe. A cunning strategist and wise warrior with a saga that pre-dates the raising of Prospero, Vyardsson’s voice carries great wait among Hvarl’s war counsel and his wolf-kin always pay heed to his advice.

Clad in an ornate suit of Tartaros Terminator Armour, Syardsson favours a combi-plasma and a chain fist, good for ending lives and breaking armour!
