The Vlka Fenryka favour these powerful assault tanks, mostly because the Vindicator’s principal armament is a heavy-calibre demolisher cannon capable of shattering fortifications and breaching the armour plates of tanks with equal ease. It is invaluable in urban warfare as it can blast and shunt its way through barricades and obstacles, enabling troops following behind free passage through streets that might have otherwise swiftly degenerated into kill zones.
The vindicator will support the three Grey Slayer packs as they advance, eliminating the largest threats to the infantry.
The vindicator colour scheme has the storm grey of the legion, complimented with a white ablative shield and red knotwork to match the Great Company colour scheme to which it is attached.
Until Next Winter…
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.
Until Next Winter…
