On the sixth day of Xmas Santa gave to me:

And a Legion full of Mys-ter-y

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

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.
