Hi, I hope this doesn't sound like a noobish question, but what is exactly the difference between the space wolves blood claws and the grey hunters?
I'm not talking stats because those are obvious, I'm talking about the models. The normal box set contains 10 models which van me used for either but in the battleforce it specifically says 10 of each, and that gets me confused...
Is it possible to just use all 20 models in the battleforce for the same type of unit or not?
model wise they are the exact same. Grey Hunters do not normally run arround with bolt pistol/close combat weapon, but they do have that on thier profile so arm the Grey Hunters with Bolters, and Blood Claws like assault marines. When you paint them, paint the Grey Hunters hair white/grey, and the Blood Claws red/orange

Yeah, the options for Grey Hunters, Blood Claws, and non-Terminator Wolf Guard are in the same box set, which is the Wolf Pack set. However if you do look carefully, you can definitely see that there are a few differences. The main concern here is which head options you give them. If you pick a head that has absolutely crazy haird styles, such as the one which is spiked all over the place, or most of the heads with their mouths open, they are usually best used for Blood Claws models. That those that look like their hair is more neat, and structured, and in particular the Astartes helmets, or the actual wolf head that is there, they would be far better for Grey Hunters. You should be able to determine which heads look older than others, and sort them out into piles for those with Blood Claws traits and Grey Hunters.
Remember though, the Wolf Guard draws its initiates from both the Blood Claws and Grey Hunters, and so their pack can consist of anything!
Hope that helps you make your selections a bit more carefully.

Ok thanks. Was thinking about magnetizing the models so besides the weapons I can give the heads a shot to keep it all more realistic or something.
Anyway, this counts for the boxed set but does it also count for the battleforce? I mean (as far as I understand) are there enough heads to create 20 grey hunters and (by swapping the heads) 20 blood claws, and visa versa.
The battleforce has the same sprues that the Wolf Pack set has.
Pointing to the differences in modeling, just read the Codex: Space Wolves and you'll should be able to figure all fluff and modeling details.
Ok thanks all.
I read the codex but because I couldn't find any clear differences (not even about the hair!) I got confused, but thanks for the help!
