Hello :-) finally I managed to introduce my girlfriend to 40k! She picked space wolves because, well, she likes the puppies :-P
Unfortunately I am a guard general so I am not so keen on marines to build a proper list... Would you be so kind to help me to build a good list for her? There are two requirements:
Points limit 750-1000 (better to start small)
Models with wolves as much as possible (well not fenrisian wolves, I know they sucks :-) twc is a good pick! )
Get a Rune Priest, a few packs of Grey Hunters, a few Razorbacks (they are quite easy to swap between to Rhinos at game time, and only cost a little bit more), and find/trade/convert a bunch of missile launchers for a couple of long fang missile batteries. That will get her the staples of the codex.
Start with the codex and an army list, though. Work from there.
every thing said is a great plan the battle force is a great buy. It's all about the long fang spam and mech at the moment the thunderwolves cav is a great unit to draw fire for the simple fact they can be across the board in your enemy's starter zone in like a turn. they have a 6 inch movement and mixed with fleet and a 12 inch assault range. Just plan nasty.
The problem is though,that they will most likely cost half or more of your army points wise (especially if you deck them) so when and if they are done for you will be in a difficult position.But thats the norm for the so called death star units.
Since we are talking about your girlfriend here i would like to say something(Mr.Negative power on).Dont focus so much on strategic value but on models that strike her fancy.She is a girl and thats the way they think.Instead of concentrating on army lists concentrate on aesthetics.Most girls that i know that started 40k for their boyfriends shake abandoned it due to its complexity.So a good idea is to focus on aesthetics play a number of games and split victories even (assuming you know 40k enough yourself to be able to cream her),giving her the opportunity to go and figure strategies herself and eventually asking you about armylist building herself.
In short make her interest peak in a subtle way.
Praise be to the Emperor!!
