MkIIb Achilles Pattern Raider Battle Tank WIP

Decided to add some anti-tank fire power to the army, and in doing so provide a transport for the flamer support squad. The Achilles was a clear choice, the multi-meltas and quad gun helping with a tactical weakness while firmly fitting in with the theme of immolation and destroyer units for the Wight Flame’s Wielders.

Rather disappointing that the model required so much gap filling, but pleased with the outcome. The sponson weapons of have magnetised for versatility of use.

Decided to add tank crew, bringing some more character to the model.

Until Next Winter…

Flamer Support Squad WIP 01

With the core force established, painted and battle hardened focus has shifted to exploring more support and specialist elements to compliment and reinforce the legion. with the force largely centered around Sepp Company the ‘Wight-Flame’s Wielders’, who are known for their destroyer and immolation units, a flamer support squad seemed like a natural fit.

Greetings of the Warp Event / ‘Best Loyalist Army’ – Heralds of Heresy Podcast

I had the absolute pleasure of running the Wolves out at Greetings for the Warp’s Age of Darkness Horus Heresy event this weekend. I had five fantastic games over two days, against a variety of armies.

The event called for 3000pts, i chose Hvarl Redblade as the army’s Warlord, photo and army list included below:

4 wins out of 5 games and a number of nominations for best army / favourite opponent saw me awarded 3rd place in the competition overall.

Games as follows:

Game 01: Mission 05 against Thousand Sons (Peter Lenon). Despite taking a hammering the Wolves won 1-0 on vps, with the Warlord Kill.

Game 02: Mission 01 against Blood Angels (James Dixon). The scions of Baal loved up to their vicious reputation and claimed the win 17-14 on vps.

Game 03: Mission 04 against Iron Warriors (Jaimie Harcort-billingham @the_iron_drake). Wolves beat Perturabo’s whelps back with an 11-6 victory.

Game 04: Mission 05 against Sons of Horus (Chris Gibson @theunbrokenchain). The Warmaster’s finest were beaten through a sneaky Price of Failure kill to give a final result of 2-1 on vps to the wolves.

Game 05: Mission 02 against Death Guard (Matt Gould @west_berks_gaming). A very bloody exchange saw the wolves victorious 11-9 on vps.

While taking 3rd place was fantastic, five excellent games against five fun opponents made the event for me. Greetings for the Warp put on superb events and i would highly recommend getting to one if you are able.

If all of that wasn’t enough, I am humbled and rather honoured to be selected by the gentlemen from Heralds of Heresy Podcast as the winner of their award for ‘best loyalist army’ thanks again chaps, i’m still smiling about it!

Legion Terminators; Modinsson’s Pack

Lead my the indomitable Kettril Modinsson, pack leader of Jarl Redblade’s Wolf Guard, and second to Thegn Einar. The Varagyr of Sepp Company are blood thirsty and relentless in their prosecution of their foes, even my Astartes’ standards. Even by sixth legion standards. They carry the reputation of their liege, embodying the epitaph of ‘headsmen’.

Armoured in variant Tartaros pattern tactical dreadnought armour, and sporting a variety of weapons, the Terminators of Sepp Company are capable of taking on armour and infantry alike.

Until Next Winter…

Einar ‘the thrice slain’ Sepp Company Herald

Einherjar to Hvarl Redblade and leader of the Jarl’s Wolf Guard, Einar is a warrior of kindred spirit to his Lord. Where some Jarl’s pick advisers to counter them and provide  contrast in their counsel, Redblade chose Einar for his ferocity and blood thirsty nature that echos his own.

Einar’s deed-name as earned during the Wheel of Fire, where he was believed dead and lost three times and yet returned. The first, defeated in combat by a mighty Greenskin and left for dead, only to be found breathing when his body was recovered by the flesh-makers. The second, his stormbird shot down and lost with all hands, but later accounted for in the thick of the fighting on the planet’s surface. The third, crushed below the foot of an Ork war machine in final days of the war, surviving his injuries and recovering over several years of the Priest’s administrations.

WIP Priest of Iron [Legion Mortificator]

With the release of Book 8: Malevolence and the new consul types for all legions the opportunity to create a Mortificator to add to the Priests of Iron was too good to pass up.

Using the Iron Father model as a base, the crenelated shin, greaves and vambrace armour was filled and studs added to resemble more standardised Cataphractii trim. A cataphractii arch was added over the head recess and the voids filled. The pauldrons were replaced with the standard cataphractii type.

The Corposant Stave was mostly crated with an axe handle from Sevrin Loth’s bodyguard, the coil and tech from Asterion Moloc’s spear and cable from a terminator power axe. the Stave head was created from a Vorax Rad Cleanser, drilled out to be hollow.

To accompany the Mortificator the opportunity was seized to bring some mid-level fire power to the Rout, choosing to have Castraferrum Dreadnoughts with twin-linked autocannons. The Autocannons were created from Contemptor autocannons, cut and re-paired to suit the dreadnought. The targeting arrays from a Deredeo were added to space the cannons and add more detail.
