Just flicking through the new CSM book and noticed there's a renegade Space Wolf great company in there :eek: called "Skyrar's Dark Wolves"

Has there been any mention of a Wolf Lord called Skyrar (I know there's one who set up his on base of operations on the eastern fringes, but I can't remember his name...)

The armour appears to be Pre-Heresy scheme, so he could just be from the 13th Co. Though the markings look like Blackmane's company but red and on a black field with an arrowhead shaped tongue coming from the mouth.

Discuss. :)

Yes in the recent Space Wolves codex on the great stone dial in the back cover their was a scratched off company this is Skyrars company who gave over fully to the defect in the Cannis Helix geneseed.

they did this willingly and are now renegade and expunged from the records of the fangs and the great companies

It indirectley represents them, as there is no mention of Skyrar, only Jorin Bloodfang.

It represents all companies who have been "destroyed in battle, lost on campaign or racanted their oaths of fealty"

That covers him nicely, but it still does not explain his origins. His forces look 13th co. to me though if he's one of the more current Wolf Lords a little retconning may be involved....

I thought the 13th was the black stone, but if it is a generic memorial then this fits nicely

But the 13th are still loyal....

heres another thought what happened to the 13th company after the most recent Black Crusade?

True but i feel mos SW would see them as lost on campaign in which case they qualify for the stone, the young SW anyway

Oh, this is interesting.

What's the color scheme of these Dark Wolves?

Don`t have the new codex CSM yet. Can you post a bit more background about them?

Everything said about them (other than the mention of them being "close combat specialists") is in the first post.
