No one remembers how the conflict started at Haven but we all know what happened. The fall of one planet triggered a new war at Maximus. Something that looked like an insignificant clash of small skirmishing bands soon escalated into full sector conflict. For some mysterious reason all major forces are driven to this cold, frozen world. At this time the planet is just about habitable. Its equator has what is best described as bad winter conditions; its poles require years of training to operate in. This is the largest planet in the Pakeshi System and is a hive world. There are 5 hive cities and very little other than wilderness between them…
So at my local gaming club The Overlords in London we’re starting a new Escalation League next month!
The league has a blog on wordpress here.
This will be my inspiration to paint up a very wolfy army full of Thunder, Fenrisian and Cyber Wolves! This army:
Champions of Fenris (500)
Rune Priest – Runic Armour, Rune Axe, Bike
Iron Priest – Thunderwolf Mount, Bolt Pistol, 2x Cyberwolves
5x Wolf Guard – Bikes
3x Thunderwolves – 1x Storm Shield
Inspired by the new supplement I think this stands to be a great fun army to play with the sheer ferocity these fanged furies can bring down upon their foes!
I’ve clearly got a lot of work ahead of me and for some reason I started with my HQ, I usually leave these till last but oh well.
Note the icicles on the base thanks to “GirlPainting” on YouTube here. Love it…
Still got to do his company markings and work out how to use snow flock but there’s time!
Also can’t wait to paint this guy up:
Oh and for those tactical geniuses out there amongst you, check out this special rule for the league…
Veterans of the Frozen Wastes
Fighting for a long time in winter environment made those warriors capable of developing their logistics and combat skills to the extraordinary level.
- every unit with winter theme base modelling and painting scheme gets re-roll for Difficult Terrain tests;
