“Listen closely Brothers, for my life’s breath is all but spent. There shall come a time far from now when our Chapter itself is dying, even as I am now dying, and our foes shall gather to destroy us. Then my children, I shall listen for your call in whatever realm of death holds me, and come I shall, no matter what the laws of life and death forbid. At the end I will be there. For the final battle. For the Wolftime.”
– Leman Russ
Here we go.
Feels so good to return on Fenrys. Bittersweetnes of missing the Las Vegas Open, but happy with the results of driving towards that schedule. Ultimately undone by the failure of my outsourcing adventure on the Drop Pods. I am enjoying this project more than any other in my quarter of a century in the hobby. I have so little time for the hobby these days, that every half an hour is a small treat, and my relative quickness is definitely an asset.
The Rout is getting to a point where it really feels like a legitimate threat. A Warband capable of ripping an army to pieces. After the wolves, it’s time to add Vehicles and really turn the visual into a fully fledged Warhammer 40000 Army. I’ve finished the final two “Void Claws” to finish off the special formation. Vosla’s pack is complete. I’m enjoying the breath of characters and different patterns of armor within the project. Now with two full “count as” terminator golf guard squads, and their friends, I feel like I can slow down even further and go create crazy individuals after the wolves and vehicles. I’m also very close to getting into gaming.
The Thunder Wolves from the beginning were going to be a central part of this project and its imagery. They were never going to get riders like we’ve discussed, instead the Jarl runs and hunts with his pack. Still I wanted storm shields, power fists and other equipment worked in elegantly. I also wanted to create gothic, jagged, cold scenery for them to hunt on.
