I was looking through the space wolf codex with friends comparing each unit choice with their conterparts in the marine codex. I'd read the hq's, fast attacks and troops and wasn't expecting to see anything special anywhere else. Then I stumbled blindly into longfangs. Rather than rabit on about how there so broken i'll give you a few examples of unit constructions
6 longfangs,4 missile launchers, plasma cannon=165- remember they can shoot at diffferent targets
three squads of these babies is perfectly workable at 1k and would be able to deal with virtually any threat (heavy infantry- plasma-cannons, frag rockets
light infantry- plasma-cannons, frag rockets
So to sum up 12 missile launchers and 3 plasma cannons shooting what they feel like for 495 points-bleh
Compare them to other heavies and devestators and they seem to me to come out on top every time.
Its sort of hard to get a scale of how that would be in a game so maybe i''m just being and idiot but doesn't that seem overpowered to you guys?
Well, look at grey hunters. They seem like the better marines too.
They are marines without combat tactics but with counter-attack and acute senses. They can't take heavy weapon but they can have special weapons in squads of five or two of them in squads of ten. The first one is the same cost as ours, the second one is free of charge whatever they take. They have bolter, bolt pistol and close combat weapon, so they get the extra attack. And they're fewer points.
While I couldn't - as far as I've seen - point at one single thing in the codex and say "this is too much, it is totally overpowered", very much of it seems very potent and mighty and high-powered. Grey hunters compared to tacticals, long fangs compared to devastators, etc...
But well, we'll have to deal with it! The long fangs aren't broken. They're just really good. Grey hunters aren't broken, they're just really good. Etc...
Space Wolves still can't have a full biker detachment, so my army's still better than theirs.
thats sick and not in the good way hmm shame u cant take hvy support as allies probably why although a squad of grey hunters and blood claws with wolf guard and wolf guard leader as hq aint bad i thinkscould be quite messy to be honest espeacially if u took pedro and put whim with the wolf guard hmm squish
Did someone say relentless drop podding Missile Launching Long Fangs?
Oh wait, that was me being awesome again.
Don't bother having anything more than meaningless small talk on this forum, the moderators won't allow it
hmm wonder what father xmas will be brining me might also be bringingmy little boy some space puppies(hes 2 sohe has pleanty of time to let me borrow them)lol long fangs spank the crap out of devs its just evil there so cheap
On the downside, to use these models you would have to put yourself through the shame of owning a Space Wolves army and frankly, it's just not worth it.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
