Adapt to Survive!
There’s been a lot of talk about Space Wolves going off the boil recently. Not as many people are taking them to tournaments anymore since there’s (literally) shinier stuff out there in the form of GK and Necrons. Don’t get me wrong I can see why people are attracted to these books. It’s no secret that GK are incredibly powerful and Necrons can be tough to beat. However, I think part of the problem is that people aren’t evolving their lists. There are three types of gamers at tournaments. Those who write a fun list with units they enjoy using, those who come up with an innovative list and play it to its best and finally those who just copy the second group but don’t have the tactical acumen to pull it off. Personally I probably have qualities of all three of those. I try and do something different with fun units but I’m not that great tactically. I have some inspired moments but the people who win tournaments are pretty solid throughout the entire battle
