Saga of the Rödmoon

“The flutist made a beautiful sound in the depth of the Kaernas forest. It was snowing. Käelma the native Hakkae called it. Hakkae had 27 different words for particular types of snow fall. Käelma was the 26th, a steel rain of black crystals that froze on your skin and caused instant frostbite with the cold winds. After that came what translated only as death, and Sgt. Borros did not intend to find out why.

27th Roslak Rovers, sheltered under the thick protective foliage of the massive Kaernas trees. Huddled around the flutist. The music was their shield, their comfort, their memory on this grey night before another battle. It was a song only a month old. A song of death and duty, of a hero and a daemon. The memory of it still left the men shaken, some weeping, but all of them focused. It was a story of the Emperor in the sun and his executioners in the night.

A month ago the Rovers were getting annihilated, outnumbered and out fought by the black crusade. Legions of the damned, supported by traitor Marines and daemons of the warp. The imperial lines were going to collapse and another planet would be consumed by the despoiler. The dark sorceries opened a rift between realms. Death visited Kaernas.

Borros had prayed, prayed like the elders thought him. Prayed for Sun Emperor’s deliverance.

A giant in grey armor, clad in pelts, and adorned with steel imagery and burning red runes of warding launched from the rift. Sprung on the traitor, daemon and damned alike. He cleaved them in half with massive sweeps of his frosted axe, flayed left and right with a massive claw dripping gore and sent explosive shells from his wrist cannon at the backs of all who tried and failed to escape the carnage. The lord of Grey flowed through the front line, propelled by a jet of blood. Even the enemy Defiler was left in pieces, it’s daemon hart ripped from it’s carcass.


It was over so shockingly fast. Defied comprehension. A dozen battered Rovers stood frozen like statues and stared in the black mercury eyes of the wolf.”









"The Bear shall take up the mantle of
Gatekeeper, and the Lost Kin return to the
Realms of Man. Brother shall slay brother, as
at the Dawn of Time, but the Were-kin stand
aloof. Their task set in stone before them. The
Son of the Traitor shall lay waste - First the
Gate, then the Palace. The Children of Russ
shall oppose him or perish, their names
reviled for all time. Now is the time, mighty
Wolf. Your hunt is nearing its end. Your
quarry is set before you. Your saga shall be
sung for all time."
— Prophecy of Frode



"The voice of Russ was the loudest of all, [Text lost] but Guilliman and Dorn gainsaid his counsel. To enter the Occularis Terribilis would bring disorder on the surviving Legions, they said, leaving Man vulnerable to both the xenite and apostate. It is said that Russ, as was often the way, took his own counsel and sent forth the Wulfen to hunt down Abaddon and his followers. Others say that the Thirteenth Great Company pursued the heretics of their own accord, as hounds at the chase who heed not the calls of their huntsman. Others still maintain that the Wulfen had been tainted by the Dark Gods and were summoned by their call to join the Traitor Legions in the netherworld"



News,

Imagine the bravest, the most dedicated, those who paid the heaviest price of the VI Legion, Adpetus Astartes, Vlka Fenryka, Emperor's executioners. A Warrior band of individual heroes and hounds, in pursuit in to the warp 10 millenia ago to hunt down Magnus and the rest of the heretic Primarchs. Imagine a beautiful set of illustrations by Dainton translated to model form by an exquisite set of conversions and hyper realistic, but moody paint jobs.

XX Legion fought in moonlight, these will dwell in a warp blizzard. Things will be flowing in different directions, there will be a swirl of death and thunder around each hero and huscarl, wulfen and wolf. A dozen or so insane(ly) powerful warriors and or beasts. Empowered by the liberties in army selection that is the seventh edition Warhammer 40000.

A whole new level of scale (beyond what the insanity that was and is Legion) and new material feel with different weathering effects.

I've finally started a brand new project. In the planning ever since I saw the new Horus model.This is a return to my first love, the Space Wolves, but the extreme 13th Great Company. You will notice a common theme to Alpha Legion. Stealth and duty, hated but loyal to death. I needed to wait until my birthday to open my box of goodies and have been having a blast this weekend.

I want to considerably up the ante from Legion (sure I'll add to them too) and truly go nuts with the best of FW models... Which I painstakingly avoided with Legion's plastic only goal. There's something to be said about the power of restrictions, and equally letting go once you've built the stamina and skills in a given area. I want to make Legion look crude in comparison, and Space Wolves built out of the box look like toys.

I hope you enjoy the journey and feel free to engage in discussion and feedback.

Awesome, Migs. I am reading Prospero Burns right now so I am especially excited. Having read Thousand Sons before, I had developed a rather negative impression of the Sons of Russ, but I am coming around.

The Blizzard theme is appropriate, and should give you plenty of satisfying challenges to overcome.

Using the Horus model as a "regular" Wolf Lord, though? And not a Primarch? Yeah....that's a whole new take on scale. What will you do when (eventually) a Primarch Wolf-King model comes out? I look forward to you "up-scaling" that.

Good bubble worth drinking usually runs for about as much as Logar or about a Command Upgrade less depending on brand and age, for Horus, you'll get something awsome. Otherwise Cava is always nice and good bottles run for about a Legion Combi-Weapons kit up to a Calas Typhon in price if one wants less dramatic bubbles that still taste very spiffy.

Now update you crazy Soumileinen! we want our prescious pics..

This blog is already up to a brilliant start We've established a whole new value system for models too!

The Art of Preparation

It's only a week into the project that I fully realize how healthy this is and how much I needed this. Gone are the old restrictions, and I'm busy designing the new vision, new focus, and that is always a process of creation, but also elimination.

I think I will do a single model each month - part of the massive appeal of this new project. By the end of next year I will have an army of 15 warrior gods and wulfen beasts, and possibly some armor for them.

Last night I airbrushed all the base colors on the Lord and his base. Feels like cheating. Smooth as photoshop, fast as a rendering farm. I've got some new paints from spain, seen in the picture, that have simply stunning flesh tones. For somebody who has lived in the cold moonlight saturation for years and years, getting to paint a very realistic, feral, deep and vivid skin is quite a feast.

I also picked the palette last night. Seen in the picture below. And cleaned this bigger drawer that used to be for Legion paints. I will use a bunch of reds - something I almost avoided all together for Legion.

The full new back of tricks will include:
Airbrushing to get the overall direction of light, but the tool will not be visible at all in the finished piece. (the model air color palette is not pictured, 5 or so paints that I apply with the airbrush on Tamiya grey spray)
Vallejo and these new Acrylics 77 something, Tamiya acrylics applied as progressive wash like flows of highlights and shadow.
Oil paints! Full on weathering techniques I learnt doing the knight. (not in the picture)
Enamel filters (not in the picture)
pihments
pledge and tamiya flat medium varnish to get the exact gloss (lack of where I need it)
combination of metallics (acrylic and enamel) left unvarnished to really get that pop.
I believe this will result to the best miniatures I've ever painted, with a style that is distinctly mine, but also a fresh combination of different influences. First results in a week or so I would estimate.

Looking to be epic.

I also just noticed that Angron's arm seems to be attached to a thunder hammer. Can I assume the Angron model is going to be the basis of a giant Wulfen?

There will be seneschal's, banner men, servitors and other humans in the force to really ram that scale home! When Leman Russ is eventually released, I will convert him into another leader, like this first Lord. Infact, I plan to build quite a few of the Primarch's into Wolf heroes of different kind. Angron is too recognizable to be used wholly, but he will donate parts across the project.

Not too bestial. I ordered them a few weeks ago, and cannot wait to see where I will go with them. Might convert them heavily into count as thunder wolf cavalry. Lots of alternative plans too.

Awesome, man. What an atypical (yet somehow typical for you) use of the Primarch models. I'm excited to see these new flesh tones and reds, too--what a great contrast they will be to your moonlit Legion figures, too.

I can't wait to see the conversions, and hopefully given your one-a-month plan, you will have some new Primarch models to work with along the way as well.

Thanks guys,

I spent another few hours painting, to realize this is going to be the worst model to start with, as it is so detailed and has so little skin visible, you won't see the hopefully beautiful grey armor and the contrasting bestial skin and splashes of gore.

It will take a long time to paint too, but it is so enjoyable to paint single minis. It doesn't matter how long it takes.

I need to make a quick business trip, so there will be bit of a brake after sunday, but still expect the first fully finished model within two weeks.
