Varagyr ‘The Wolf Guard’ 

The Varagyr are the chosen warriors of Leman Russ, hand-picked from his own Great Company to form his personal guard and close companions in war and council. To have attained such a rank and position, each has distinguished himself in battle many times over, and each has forged his own saga worth the telling.

More so than any other of his sons they are the wolves of his pack, marked by the great beast pelt which adorns their armour, and to adopt this honour means more than simply to walk in the Wolf King’s shadow and lay down their lives for him if needs be, it means something much more. It means that at least for a time they have foregone the chance to lead their brothers in battle, to watch while others strike, to stand fast and not to seek out the glory of battle save when their lord commands. When such coldly withheld fury is unleashed however, it falls like a thunderbolt against the foe.

Armoured in mighty suits of Cataphractii pattern tactical dreadnought armour the Varagyr are neigh unstoppable force in battle. Wielding might chain axes with teeth forged from the very bones and rock of Fenris, the fury of their uncompromising assaults has become legend.

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!

Haltaf’s Hunters ‘Wolf Guard’

Forseti Haltaf is a dour warrior, an individual removed from sentiment and stern of purpose, it is joked among his pack and the wider legion, that he should have been born to Dorn’s 7th. None the less Haltaf is a fierce warrior and uncompromising in his duty, ever the grim executioner, befitting of his legion’s role.

The veteran’s of Haltaf’s pack are warriors of note, hunters and trackers, more often than not they operate away from the main body of a the Rout’s assaults, joining the bloodshed from an unseen quarter or running down those that would seek to flee.

The squad number seven veterans, armed with a mixture of combi-weapons (plasma & melta), power axes and a power fist.
