New to 40k and starting a Space Wolves army and had an idea to use old dwarf CC weps. I hate the look of chain swords so I thought why not put axes and hammers on the grey hunters instead. I think it fits their overall fluff. I am also going to be painting the wolves a matte purple. Fluff-wise I'm thinking some lost chapter of SW.
Finally, I guess my question is will people be griefin' me cause they aren't equipped with chain swords? I am new to 40k and am unsure. Also, while I'm here I hope nobody minds if I post a rules question.
In the Space Wolves Codex it says Grey Hunters are equipped with bolters, bolt pistols, and CC weps. Is a bolter just short for Boltgun?
SW with Dwarf weps, primed and ready to paint.

I don't think anyone will bother you, as long as it is clear which models have cc weapons, and which have Power Weapons or Thunder Hammers and the likes. I used standard, non-glowy, non-buzzy swords for some of my troops, but then when it came time for power weapons, I had to paint them up with a blue lightning pattern to differentiate. Thunder Hammers were the only hammers in my collection though.
As long as you're clear about what you're using, you should be okay.
As for the rules question- yes, Bolter is short for boltgun. There should be stats for the weapon in the back of your codex.
Ya, I am aware of all the stats, just unclear about the weapon. Thanks for the feedback Cap.
Don't you think the weapon look a little too small?
Ya, some of them are a bit small but I still like them much better than chainswords! I've got base coats and some metal detail done. Maybe post some pics.
I like the weapon heads quite alot but agree on them looking a little short. Might be an idea to get a little bit of plastic rod from your local hobby shop and make them just a little longer. It'll look more imposing for sure.
Good luck with you building and painting.
I have one word, tomahawk
used by native americans for centuries and still used some by US recon forces....big does not always mean deadly.
All that said they do look rather small, still could look good painted, that is an test only time will tell.
