One Year on Fenrys.
What started as a birthday spin off – two fun models to on the side – in the era of modeling for me where I thought I’d never be able to do a full army again, has turned into a very tangible, 2000 pts vision statement.
Quite honestly I am still dumbfounded how this came to be. Or how much I’ve enjoyed it. Or just how different the style and finish is to Legion models, while still being recognizably my work. I’ve been able to enjoy Forge World’s and Games Workshop’s very finest models. I’ve learned to use an airbrush, and oil paints. I returned to black primer. And fell in love with Scale 75 metallic paints.
A really large part of making this project happen has been all of you guys! The support and enthusiasm in so many online medias has been great fuel along the way. Thank you. I also need to recognize Blacklibrary, Adbnett and Wraight for their respective Vlka Fenryka tomes that gave enough fresh leeway for me to take the existing Sky Warrior mythos, imagery and vocabulary and run with it to a fresh (or chilling?) direction. My friends in Nottingham, I salute and thank you once again. My Iron Sleet brethren – Vitun kova meno!
What comes next? Well I still have a dozen or so infantry and 5 vehicles to finish painting. I still vividly dream of getting into gaming. But perhaps most importantly from your perspective, I am thinking about what to do next. Wish it could be single models and a humble little team. Maybe it is a return to Mont’ka. Only thing certain is that it’s time to mix up the rules again. Fundamentally.
For Russ! Fenrys Hjolda!!!
