This evening’s post is a very small break from the rigorous Killzone revision process, in exchange for an update on a motivating and fun achievements checklist courtesy of everyone’s favorite troll-face, Skarvald.
Last week, I spotted this post and thought, hmmmm... now there’s an idea.
You might like to check it out. Skarvald has created a “100 thingsto do” gauntlet for the aspiring (or, in my case, completely pedestrian) Space Wolves enthusiast. I say this shamelessly.
Now. I must admit that, to date, I have played exactly one game with my Wolves as Wolves… and that was a Killzone game last week vs. FrozenJoe’s DE menace. I know. I know. I promised a break from all this Killzone discussion, and I will honor my word.
That game, as the keen reader will have already noted, was not the first time that my humble and sometimes confused Wolves appeared here on A Gentleman’s Ones. In fact, they were created for two quite specific purposes:
-first, as a unit of “pre-personal-heresy” Terminators from the now functionally retired Onorevoli chapter. They were a kind of hobby smash-and-grab that I used to think about the historical failings of my erstwhile favorites…
-and second, as a stand in unit for the Space Hulk models (note that they were fashioned with a rather unlikely combination of wargear: TH/SS as well as AC with the obligatory Chainfist in the margins). Nothing against those fine Space Hulk sculpts, of course, but variety is the spice of life.
Call it hobby multi-tasking.
Well. Skarvald has inspired me to revisit these bad boys with a bit more zeal and a spoonful of modest ambition. I have already started preparing a few Fenrisian wolves as a pleasant little side project from all the other side projects, and have acquired the basis for a Tundarwulf conversion of sorts. We shall see.
I have no real intention of beginning an entire Wolves army, mind you, nor of casting my lot in rigorous tournament play.
Either one of those options would be a giant leap in the deepest end for me right now. There’s enough on my plate already; however, I fully intend to tick off as many of these as I am able to the best of my ability. It’s an inspiring challenge, which makes a fine resolution for the new year.

And why not.
