i was looking through many army lists for space wolves and i noticed that no one really uses wolf lords and i was wondering why. im starting space wolves and want to know whether or not i should go for the wolf lord or wgbl as my hq and also if fenrisian wolves are worth it (i really liked the idea of it and of having wolves in my army) so if someone can answer my question/s i would really appreciate it
for my 1st HQ, I always go for a wolf priest
He is cheap and a nice character
You get a power weapon boltpistol and inv. sv 4+ for only few points
for a starter like you, you dont really need any other additional wargear for the wolfpriest
Well in big games wolves are required to have more hqs and they can end up very expensive, I tend to use a wolf lord and venerable dread and throw in a rune priest in bigger games.
This is along the same lines as the chaplain in the marine codex, there isnt really any point buying the master of sanc when the reculsy does the exact same thing cheaper. Unlike marine force commanders or libs theres no real benefit to the extra 15 points cost then 1 wound and ld.
I always buy a wolf lord because my brother loves trying to kill my HQ so more wounds keeps him alive longer.
The man of tomorrow is judged by his battle today.
I ALWAYS use a wolf lord as my primary HQ.
Basically his 3 wounds means he is worth dumping points on, so I take him suitably kitted out (depending whether he has wolf guard or not) to be a killing machine.
He is also usually part of my main assault force, the other stuff is to back him up.
I use him to take on anything and everything and stand a high chance of winning, typically:-
Belt of russ, frost blade, wolf tooth necklace, bolt pistol and runic armour.
With that layout any man sized opponent he can take be it IG officers or chaos lords of doom, he will give all a run for their money.
