"Blood of Fenris is on your hands, and there will be a reckoning between us, Magnus. This I swear upon the blade of Mjalnar" - Russ
I have been playing Space Wolves since I first started 40k many years ago. Since then, I have dabbled with other chapters (Crimson Fists, Salamanders, Ultramarines to name a few) but I have always come back to the wolves. I love their fluff and I often find that reading a space wolf related book will inspire me to paint some more models.
Earlier this year, the Warzone Fenris series was annouced GW which saw the Space Wolves embark on a great hunt to recover all the lost wulfen from across the galaxy. As a result, I dusted off all my old models and decided to repaint them and for the first time, decided on a Great Company to model them after. Krom Dragongaze and his Drakeslayers. Krom has a fantastic model and got an updated profile in the Curse of the Wulfen supplement. The Drakeslayers also got a nice formation in the same supplement so it seemed like the time was right.
Over the last year, I have slowly been repainting (and in some cases, painting) my wolves.
Below are what I have finished so far.
|Venerable Dreadnoughts, Loki Redshield & Skjaldulf Frostbreath
|Loki Redshield, my old custom wolf lord who fell in glorious battle many years ago against the Tau.
|Skjaldulf Frostbreath, armed with Helfrost cannon and frostclaw.
|Beware enemies of Russ!
|A portion of Krom's Wolf Guard
|The Red Wolf (L) and Olvir Fellhands
|Pack leader Ingvar The Great (L) & Asmund Wyrdbane
|The terminators of the Drakeslayers are not to be underestimated. It is told that they have even slain a Demon Prince of Slannesh and lived to tell the tale.
|Einir Windchaser - Wolf Guard biker
|Canis Wolfborn/ Havard Frost-talon & his Thunderwolf Cavalry
|Grey Hunters of the Drake Slayers
|These guys are vital for securing objectives.
|2 Rune Priests
|3x Long Fangs, keeping the main army safe from afar.
