Hey all, I have been reading some of the rumors for the new Space Wolf codex. It seems that Games Workshop had decided to make the army very elite.
It will be expected that you will ALWAYS be outnumbered and after Sagas/equipment etc all their units can become very expensive.
This at first worried me because this is the play style of DH (possibly their replacement?) why have 2 armies with the same exact play style?
But then I started thinking, could we use our DH models with the Space wolf codex? It will depend on how "Elite" GW makes space wolves and what options they can be equiped with (If their troops can get a storm bolter and CCW this could be possible). This could be a short term solution to make DH more competitive until we get our new codex.
What does everyone think? I enjoy using the current DH codex but not having an uphill battle every game may be nice.
Of course we would lose our NFW but I am pretty sure that Space Wolves had True Grit in their last codex.
I am not the most up to date when it comes to rumors but this seems like it may be worth a try.
Just food for thought
"Thank him who puts me loath to this revenge on you who wrong me not for him who wrongd"
Wouldn't bet on it, there is no way that all SW have stormbolters, already we've seen models of the GH and BC.
That would suck if they were to made into an elite army like the DH. One of the things I liked most about the Wolves are their Blood Claws. Very cheap and good for what they can do. Imagine putting 15 in a Land Raider Crusader with bolt pistols, close combat weapons and frags. Now imagine giving that unit a meltagun and 3 power weapons! And to top it all off, each blood claw gets +2A on the charge and each can carry meltabombs! Madness! That unit does 48 regular and 12 power attacks on the charge! And to top it all off, they have counter-attack, true grit, stubborn, And They Shall Know No Fear, and are cheaper than regular marines!!!!
Basically, like the Witch Hunter sisters, they are the only horde MEQ army, and a pretty good one at that. I hope they don't change too much.
Yeah I doubt they're elite as well. Like all Marines they will have that option probably, but with Blood Claws and things they should be able to throw down decent model numbers.
