So I'm a Tyranid player and found a huge black Friday sale this weekend (30% off, oh wow!) Since my new bugs won't be out for a bit, I wanted to try out Space Wolves. But honestly, I've looked at the codex and i'm perplexed.
Does anyone have a few good suggestions where to start? I was thinking a battleforce, codex, and a squad of something, but I don't know of what. What's a good starter HQ? Priestess? Or how about the guy on the big cyber puppy? I'm clueless
You’ll need the Codex and the battleforce.
The battleforce meat is the Wolf Pack frames, allowing you to build 20 power armor models that can be assembled as Grey Hunters, Blood Claws or Wolf Guard.
To complement the battleforce, pick a pack of Wolf Guard Terminators. You should be able to build HQ choices in terminator armor with it, too.
At 500 points, the battleforce and the Wolf Guard terminators should be sufficient, but if you want to invest in something else, a Land Speeder is nice to have at this point level.
As you grow it to 750-1000 points level, you’ll need more troop choices, so consider another box of Wolf Pack or even another battleforce.
Personally, I don’t like scouts and I’m not using the drop pod either, but that’s me. Also, I’d recommend staying away from all these special character models, first because they are very expensive point wise, second because the Codex is still new and no one actually know for sure how competitive they can be.
The battleforce says that it includes 10 Grey Hunters and 10 Blood Claws.. are these sprues designed that you can only build these, or is it actually two boxes of Space Wolves?
If it's the latter, depending on how much you're willing to spend, grab up two battleforce boxes an HQ, and two Rhinos. Make 30x Grey Hunters and 10x Wolf Guard, and you'll have enough models to play a 500-750 point battle with a decent amount of variation.
Also keep in mind the Space Wolf terminator box. You'll need them sooner or later, so if you have the money, buy them too.
Super sweet. I might actually get back into Space Wolves after/if I sell of my other unused armies. Something fun for my friends to play against my Orks
