So to be frank, I do not like space marines. They are bland, boring, generic poster boys with cookie cutter characters and sweet fuck all in the way of actual themes.
With one exception. The Space Wolves. Ever the only chapter of Space Marine that could hold my interest, and now my discipline has finally cracked. With the inevitable re-release of the SW codex (Codex: Vlka Fenryka???) I decided to make a go of an army from the codex, using the models, and running around a theme of my own concoction.
However, I did not want to just do generic Space Wolves either. They're too feral for my liking. Awesome in their own savage way, but not quite what I was after. The models were fine and the codex gave me all the options I needed, but the theme needed to be tweaked. So I decided that I would not be doing Space Wolves persay, but rather a lesser variant. Not quite wolves. More like Space... Coyotes?
So, there cometh my theme. Space Coyotes. A small chapter, scavenger by nature and cunning when on the hunt.
I have already formed a loose basis for fluff to motivate the list building, and it calls for natural similarities between the Wolves and these guys. Namely, the presence of large vicious furry pets.
So to begin with, a simple kit. A Fenrisian wolf kit, to represent my first Coyote Hunting Pack.
The kit was remarkably simple, with each body being in two sections, and each head also in two sections.
The completed pack.
