Herohammer: Njal Stormcaller

Njal Stormcaller in his Runic Terminator Dreadnought Armour
Last time we explored the insane Space Wolves Herohammer list. Me and Norau decided that we just have to try this list out, and of course we need the proper minis! Here's the first one, Njal Stormcaller. We simply love this classic Rune Priest mini, and with a simple gun swap it's a perfect rendition of Njal.

I painted him with a basecoat of Fenris Grey, overbrushed Shadow Grey and highlighted with Adeptus Battlegrey. The runes are Mechrite Red, followed by lighter and lighter applications of Lord Solar Macharius Orange, Blazing Orange and Golden Yellow.

I like how Njal ended up looking, especially as i really didn't spend a lot of time on him. Norau is going to the Strategikon tournament next weekend, and Njal and his buddies just needs to be painted before then.

Herohammering the Wolves

Intrigued by Blog Wars over at From The Fang, where every army must include a special character, we wanted to make the ultimate Herohammer Space Wolves list. The result:
  • Logan Grimnar
  • Njal Stormcaller w/Runic Terminator Armour
  • Bjorn the Fell-Handed w/Plasma Cannon
  • Ulrik the Slayer
  • Blood Claws Pack
    • Lukas the Trickster
    • Blood Claws x4
    • Rhino
  • Wolf Guard Pack
    • Arjac Rockfist
    • Wolf Guard in Terminator Armour x2
All this for the small sum of 1499 

This list is actually legal. Insane! And it scales really well too. At 1750, simply give the Wolf Guard, Logan and Njal a Land Raider! Obviously we have to try this out. We'll play a game with this army as soon as we are able. Stay tuned for the exciting battle report!

Eager to find an opponent we tried to do the same exercise with other codices, but the closest we got was a Space Marines list at 940. If you find anything higher, and legal, please let us know in the comments.

Haters gonna hate 2

So apparently Hitler plays Daemonhunters :)

The video author brings up an interesting point. A lot of trolls on the internet seem to be talking trash over guys that are jumping to the newest Codex when it is released. At the moment, that's Grey Knights. For me, the release of a new codex is very exciting, and I want to explore the possibilities within as soon as possible. If that makes me a guy that jumps on the bandwagon of cheese, so be it.

At least I paint my armies.
