The newest edition of 40k is what a few people are calling a “sandbox” rules set. This is the best example yet of Games Workshop's push to get their players to “forge the narrative”. Basically they've decided that their strongest product is the wealth of fluff that they've built over the past 25 or so years and so they've given us this large expansive set of rules that lets us, the players, play the games we want to play. If you want to play a small skirmish between two rival warbands; you can do it. If you want to see massive technologically questionable machines battle giant xeno-beasts, wiping out ground troops like the expendable fodder they are; you can do that too.
In light of this my friend Jimzan the Everliving and I have decided to forge our own narrative in an upcoming campaign that will shape the saga of my own Wolf Lord, Manton “the Destroyer” Wolfen-wolf, and his Necron Destroyer-lord Jimzan the Everliving. Naturally that means creating our own characters and converting models to represent us on the fields of war.
Without any further ado, I bring you Lord Manton “The Destroyer” Wolfen-Wolf.
