  • Sagas
    They are now Warlord Traits like other armies with the difference that you can choose them without to roll dices
    HQ Units
    Like 3rd Edition; One HQ per 750p
    Logan Grimnar
    Lord of War, may take Two Warlord Traits, make Wolf Guard Packs to troops
    Ragnar Blackmane
    When all Units in the detachment take Drop Pods as dedicated Transport, Ragnar will be free. Your Army may only take Unites with an Drop Pod option.
    Canis Wolfborn
    No longer in the Codex
    Harald Deathwolf
    New Character, replace the generic Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf, make Thunderwolf Cavalry to Troops
    Bjorn the Fell-Handed
    Now a Lord of War, becomes “it will not die”. When Bjorn is destroyed every Space Wolves Unit within 12″ becomes furious charge, fearless and hate the unit, charakter or vehicle that destroyed him
    Wolf Guard
    Pack Leaders are now entries in the Units like Squad Leaders in other Armies. Still no teleport for Terminators
    Grey Hunters
    Close Combat Weapons are now a option that replace the Bolter, 5p cheaper
    Blood Claws
    3p cheaper
    Long Fangs
    Can’t take Rhinos as dedicaded Transports
  • Krom Dragongaze rumored stats floating around.

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

Rules Lawyer

  • Paul from the east coast wrote in to point out some interesting rules pointers in 7th. Nothing now says you have to use a certain weapon, and, you can swing with multiple weapons at different initiative steps, piling in at the highest step.
  • Formations are detachments, they do not fit into other detachments.
  • Your Warlord can come from any Detachment.
  • Knights can only come in detachments of 1-3 now, some folks have missed that.

List Review

  • Autarch on bike with power weapon.
  • 6 Windrider jet bikes with 2 Shuriken Cannons X3
  • 3 Crimson Hunters with bright lances and an Exarch.
  • Fire Prism with Holo Fields and Spirit Stones X3
  • 1 Lynx with Scatter Laser.
  • Thank you for your time 🙂

    Do note about warlords that if you Allied detachment as your second detachment then the warlord cant be from that detachment.

    Also that 2x weapon thingie… wow. Really? I find that quite hard to swallow. And I’m all about firing ordnance last and firing the other stuff with normal BS. That would make Grey Knight Deathcult Assasins even more fierce than before. First maul your opponents with power mauls and then hack rest of them to death with power axes.

    Read the rules very carefully (I have played since start of 3rd edition, like care to read principally the same assault rules every time) and… yeah. It kinda seems like that that you can strike multiple times if you got the weapons for it. Ouch. Tanks and MCs before troops with either high S or krak grenades AND meltabombs!

      Ah, you cannot, the rule preventing it is in the shooting section, lol! Pg. 41

    On the 2* melee weapons: p41 of the rulebook (weapons section), it states that a model must choose which shooting weapon to use, and likewise which melee to use. So no double dipping.

      Ah, good catch! And why put that in the shooting section, lol?

    Just a quick fyi: Crimson Hunter Exarch is unique, so one CH with BS 5 and two CH with BS 4. Still a great flyer though.

    Before I order a FATmat from you guys, is their a UK supplier on the horizon? As i’d much rather buy 2 than pay the huge shipping costs 😀

      We are working on that now, yes. We hope to be doing business there within the next 4-6 weeks.
