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.

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!

The Wolf-Kin of Russ

Freki and Geri. Said to be companions of the Wolf King from his earliest days as a foundling upon the bleak desolation of Fenris, these two creatures are beasts of prodigious size, formidable intelligence and a physical power that beggars belief in purely ‘natural’ creatures of their type. The guardians of the Wolf King’s hearth, from time to time when he calls they follow alongside him into battle as they may, ripping apart the hated foe limb from limb.

Really beautiful models and amazing sculpts but I find myself torn on the scale of these models, the wolves are far larger than I had imagined them to be or than they are pictured in some of the artwork, the cover of Prospero Burns for example. I would add that this is not necessarily a critism, i’m just not sure whether I like them depicted at this size.

Until next winter…

The Wolves Approach…

Jarl Ulvbane Thorvardsson stalks the ruins of Tizca, snuffing the last embers of resistance encountered in the wake of the Rout’s onslaught. His Huscarls keep pace, his warriors run the streets and cleanse the buildings, mighty Ancients strike the battle field in support, implacable in their destructive duty.
