Battle Bunnies 20 Legions of Xmas: Vlka Fenryka

On the sixth day of Xmas Santa gave to me: 
Russ-is-a-slaying
Sa-vage laugh-ing kill-ers!
Dirty Ditch Diggers
Per-fect-ion
+++ Records Expunged +++
And a Legion full of Mys-ter-y



Legion: VI
Name: Vlka Fenryka
Former Names: None
Primarch: Leman Russ
First Captain at outbreak of Heresy: Gunnar Gunnhilt (Absolute Legend)

Forge World Colour scheme (sent to me a while ago):

Grey Armour

Basecoat of Dawnstone which is highlighted with Administratum Grey.  Wash this with an equal mix of Badab Black, Lahmian Medium and water.

Brass

Basecoat of Warplock Bronze which is highlighted with Rune Lord Brass. 

I will be waiting to see what FW paints are released before I start my favourite Legion. 



Sample 2500 pt list with Primarch:

Wolf Lord (Praetor): pair of lightning claws; melta bombs; digital lasers; iron halo 170

9 Tactical Space Marines: chainswords; nuncio-vox; legion vexilla; + 1 Tactical Sergeant (heavy chainsword; melta bombs) 200
• Rhino: hunter-killer missile; dozer blade; extra armour; heavy bolter 75
11 Assault Space Marines: 2× power weapon; melta bombs; + 1 Assault Sergeant (artificer armour; pair of lightning claws; melta bombs) 395
4 Tactical Support Marines: plasma guns; + 1 Tactical Support Sergeant (artificer armour) 185
19 Tactical Space Marines: chainswords; legion vexilla; + 1 Tactical Sergeant (artificer armour; power weapon; melta bombs) 325

4 Terminators: Cataphractii armour; 2× combi-weapon; power fist; chainfist; heavy flamer; 2× pair of lightning claws; + 1 Terminator Sergeant (combi-weapon; thunder hammer; grenade harness) 271
• Spartan Assault Tank: twin-linked heavy flamer; hunter-killer missile; auxiliary drive; armoured ceramite; flare shield; multi-melta 380

Russ inc Freki and Geri (estimated) 500

2,501 points

Summary: I have written this list to showcase their brazen savagery. Melta Bombs mean they will all be able to tackle any vehicle the unit may encounter, it also puts enough feet on the ground (which the Rout were renowned for). Stick Russ in the Sparten with his Bodyguard and Russ Bomb their front lines, with the Assault squad and Rhino keeping up behind and charging the turn later. The 20 Legionnaire squad led by the Wolf Lord will attack his own targets and try to claim objectives etc.

  2. Russ, Freki and Geri for 500pts...yeah right!! If that's the case expect Russ to be more pants than Lorgar before 'the change' lol

    Russ and his 2 pooches will come to 600-700 I reckon...and cost the same in £s lol

    1. Yeah will be more, but was loathe to put his points above Horus for now.

  3. Nice job, but Russ should on the board be more expensive than horus. He was after all the Emperors instrument of disciplining other legions.

  4. I'm really enjoying the 20 legions of Christmas! Do you guys and gals have any land for the 21-24 ? Don't tell me I would rather it be a surprise, but an idea could be mechanicum, solar auxilia, sisters of silence and custodes to round out the available armies.

  5. Where are the Vlka Fenryka packs :( Those damned traitorous, sorcerous Thousand Sons are getting there's before us! And adding salt to the wound my best friend is a Thousands Sons player and has been rubbing my face in it...

    1. Hi Dan and welcome :)

      I feel your pain. Have you started your Vlka yet? FW are either planning them now or getting them ready for release in February.

  6. Not just yet, but I have ordered a few Mk III tactical squad bundles and a command set to kick start it, thanks for asking :) I do have a dilemma though as i'm not sure if I should use the crested helmets as I'm not sure it would really go with Vlka.

    1. I'd say trim all bits you buy, assemble vehicles, sit back and wait for upgrade packs. I do not think Crested Helms will be used by the Vlka Fenryka. I'd seriously suggest being patient like me :)
