The objective here was simple, to create a scheme that embodies my vision of how the Vlka Fenryka should (and i use this word carefully) look in a 40k setting. For me the Heresy era space wolves have always been closest to my vision of the Legion/Chapter.
I wanted to subtley move from the flat grey of the legion era bringing in reference to the blues of the Games Workshop official colour scheme without casting them in their canon blue/grey.
In lieu of brightly coloured pack markings I’ve opted for knotwork devises and symbols that echo the tenents of the Codex Astrates without taking their blunt style. The use of the white pauldrons and red knotwork brings interest and colour without overbearing vibrance.
Additionally i want the warriors to adorned in their cutlure, for me this is runes, knotwork, brass trim and fenrisian iconography. Most importantly this is a complete lack of imperial iconography, the use of the imperial aquila, skulls and laurels lends to a different aesthetic, one that doesn’t fit with the pseudo-viking stylings I envisage.
I’d be very interesting to see what people think, so drop me a message on here or on Instagram.
Until Next Winter…
