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 WIP 01

With Freki and Geri assembled custom bases have been created. The intent was to keep the spirit of the original bases, including the relationship between the wolves and their bases, but to create bases to match the rest of the army and the gaming board.

The first wolf’s base (lets say this is Freki) needed to retain the marine as Freki is pinning the poor unfortunate marine down, this was combined with the tiles and wall sections to match the wider army and the board.

The second wolf’s base (lets this is Geri) needed to provide a weight bearing element to replace the marine being knocked off balance by Geri. A little heat and reposing of Geri’s paw and leg allowed for a section of wall to be inserted.

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.
