As I look through the posts on the WIP pages i see so many great projects, many backed up by a really strong narrative so i thought i'd look a little further than the models I'm currently attempting to finish off.
White Wolves Chapter:
Tra Company - Company Colur - Red
Wolf Lord - Freijr the Younger - Also known as 'The Ice Wrought' - Called Freijr the Younger as he was reanimated 2 minutes after Company Champion Freijr the Elder (The Bear Claw) - model will be Ragnar Blackmane painted in 3rd (Tra) Company colours with very pale/albino skin. Not gonna lie this decision was much influenced by Jarl Greyloc from the Battle of the Fang novel.
Company Champion - Freijr the Elder - Also known as the Bear Claw - Dark Imperium Gravis Captain - In any other Company he would be the Lord but he is content with his position as 2nd in command and leader of his lord's Wolf Guard. I'm going to attempt to kitbash this guy and add the Bear pelt from a Wolf Guard Terminator box set I have instead of the usual cape. I have another idea for the Terminators.
3 x Primaris Wolf Guard - 2 x Lieutenants from the Dark Imperium box set plus Haldor Icepelt as leader of each segment of the company. Icepelt will lead the gun line - intercessors and Grey Hunters, 1 x lieutenant will lead the assault element and 1 the support section - Hellblasters etc. The 2 Dark Imperium Lt's will have additional wolf pelts and heads to help add to the 'Wolfieness'!
Company ancient/Wolf Guard with standard
In tne White Wolves desire to emulate both their Fenrisian and Primaris backgrounds, they will field equal amounts of Space Wolf and Primaris unique units. For example for each unit of Intercessors they will field a unit of (Primaris modelled) Grey Hunters or Primaris modelled Blood Claws for Assault intercessors etc.
Instead of buying Heavy Intercessors, even though I like the models, I've got some regular Devastator heavy weapons - Heavy Bolter, Plasma Cannon and Multi Melta that i will try and add to my existing moedls and see where that takes me.
1 x Unit Grey Hunters - Sergeant + 5 (Primaris ) Grey Hunters 1 with Heavy Bolter
1 x Unit Intercessors
1 x Unit Hell Blasters - 1 with Plasma Cannon - can 'count as Hell Blaster plasma gun' but i like the look of the cannon
1 x Inceptors - not really sure how I'll add to these or if I'll use them from box. Probably SkyClaws would their best proxy unit so some jump pack equipped assault Intercessors may have to be kitbashed somehow.
As for the Space Wolf Terminators - 5 x Wolf Guard Terminators (1 Sergeant) - Called The Watchers by the White Wolves, this unit has been seconded to their Chapter by none other than Logan Grimnar himself, ostensibly to help with their selection of new aspirants and to monitor performance, especially in the field, of the new Primaris marines. They have the potential to send worthy Marines to the home world, to the Aett, for further observation if they have performed outstanding feats in battle
- Wolf Lord and Company Champion the two Freirs were the 1st of the chapter to receive this boon - and they will be hosted by the resident Wolf Lord and his Priests in different scenarios - this was where Company Champion Freijr the Elder received his Wyrd Name of Bear Claw. In joining the Wolf Lord in the hunt on Fenris, Freijr intervened when he observed 2 Giant Ice Bears attacking a hunting party of native Fenrisians. Normally the Wolves would not interfere but Freijr didn't hesitate although he was poorly armed with only a spear and his axe. Impressing Krom Dragongaze with ferocity and physical prowess, the Champion drove one Bear off and killed killed the other with a mighty blow that not only split the Bear's skull but also shattered his axe. Although victorious, Freijr was grievously injured but showed impressive fortitude in returning unaided to The Aett. So impressed was Krom that not only did he have his own thralls cure and prepare the Bear Pelt for Freijr to take back with him, but he also replaced his axe with a relic Thunder Hammer from his own armoury. (This is where the Gravis Captain will have his sword replaced with a Thunder Hammer from the Terminator box set)
None of the White Wolves are in any doubt as to the real purpose of the Watchers true purpose however. Whilst they will undoubtedly be reporting on the White Wolves performance in battle, there will be no repeat of the Wolf Brothers fall from the Imperium's light and the Watchers will sanction them with the full might of the Wolves of Fenris if they have the slightest doubt.
