Hey everyone, Im new to the space wolves. But I was wondering, are they able to take a Leman Russ tank?
They only have one variant that they can take. Do you have the SW codex?
Just grabbed it last night

Wait sorry I read that wrong, I just grabbed the SM codex. There are no SW codex's to be found any more
They should be able to get whichever Leman Russ tank they want. After all, their Primarch was Leman Russ himself.
They get 0-1 Leman Russ Exterminator per detachment. You can put Smurf vehicle upgrades on them but not IG ones.
SW codex: you have to find on ebay or you could ask to see if anyone has the pdf copy. SWs will get some love here this year with a new dex though. (They may not get to keep the Leman Russ Ext though. We'll have to see how it shakes out)
SW can take Leman Russ Exterminators but not any other variant. I'd watch out if you're going to get one though because we don't know what's going to happen to them with the new codex.
With regard to getting hold of a codex, giftsforgeeks might possibly have one (although I doubt it) or you could get one off eBay. Or you could find the PDF version one some p2p network (Utorrent, &c.)
Well I already have one from a previouse failed attempt at doing guard, befor bashing my brains out with all the models I had to paint. And I already converted the Russ to have a twin linked auto cannan so w/e its half way there just has to be painted
I have a friend who plays IG and he says the exterminator would not be worth the point cost, as it would be a huge drawer of heavy fire, but do you tend to agree with him or think opposite? Hes been playing far longer than i have so im not quite sure whether to consider it or not. (i could see it destroying hordes with a T-L autocannon and 3 hv bolters, which is awesome, but i could field long fangs that could split fire for not to much more) Opinions?
Your Long Fangs aren't AV14 tanks, though. Yes it'll draw ungodly amounts of attention, but it's hard to describe just how difficult it is to reliably take out AV14 nowadays. One battlecannon template might rip the heart out of your Long Fangs, but it'll just bounce off the Russ without incident.
That said it's hardly the greatest threat on the table. Personally I wouldn't bother with the Exterminator unless you know you're facing hordes.
