Mastodon Super-Heavy Assault Transport WIP 01

A twist or fate, crossing palms with silver and making innocent pacts with the Warmaster’s forces has seen the Vlka Fenryka’s assault fire power increase. This Mastodon has seen war before, in the colours of the Sons of Horus, please do check out @fortunatesonofhorus on instagram.

The super-heavy warmachine has had its iconography removed, imperfections sanded, panels re-aligned and has been primed ready for its new lease of life.

The latter picture above shows the disassembled Mastodon, still in its Sons of Horus livery prior to work.

Forge World’s Book VII Inferno contains some beautiful photography/artwork of the Mastodon in action on Prospero.

Until Next Winter…

 

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!

MkIIa Proteus Pattern Raider Tank WIP 02

The achilles front plate and the plasticard trim have been smoothed in with some greenstuff and the hull mounted heavy bolter has been swapped out for a twin-linked lascannon. The lascannons were sourced from the sponsons of the Sicaran.

This land raider will be a dedicated transport for the seeker squad.

Deimos Pattern Predator ‘Medium’ Tank

Predator Tank, Deimos Pattern, armed with a Predator class Autocannon, which offers a greater rate of fire than it’s more ubiquitous name-sake. The Predator is employed by the Vlka Fenryka primarily in fire support role, harrying enemy light armour and infantry, leaving the dedicated tank engagements to its Sicaran kin.

 

The Predator is a highly effective medium tank designed to provide Astartes Legions with heavy fire support in the heat of battle. Whilst several patterns of Predator saw battle during the Great Crusade and latter Horus Heresy the Deimos Pattern was by far the most common.

Sicaran Battle Tank

Sicaran Battle Tank, Sixth Legion, displaying elite Varagyr knot work markings on upper track plates representative of veteran crew, favoured by a Jarl, or even the Wolf King.

The Sicaran is one of the most advanced armoured units in the arsenal of the Vlka Fenryka, or the Legions as a whole. The Sicaran utilises component technologies from various STC patterns to create a high-speed ‘destroyer’ tank to complement the more commonplace Predator and Raider designs. It is this speed that finds the tank favour amongst the Thegns and Jarls of the Rout.

The primary armament of this Sicaran varient is the sophisticated Herakles pattern accelerator autocannon, a superior rapid-firing and highly accurate weapon. It fires shells at far higher velocities than a standard autocannon, enabling it to successfully track and engage swift moving targets and pinpoint vulnerabilities in enemy armour with lethal precision.
