List Review

1850 Company of the Great Wolf/Inquisition

Wolf Guard Battle Leader: terminator armor, storm shield, krakenbone sword, meltabombs

Arjac Rockfist

3 x 3 Wolf Guard Terminators: 3 x combi-plasma, 2 x storm shields, 1 x power weapon (undecided on type)

3 x 3 Wolf Guard Terminators: 3 x combi-melta, 2 x storm shields, 1 x power weapon

3 x 3 Lone Wolves: terminator armor, thunder hammer, storm shield

3 x 3 Lone Wolves: terminator armor, frost axe, storm shield

3 x drop pods: 2 x teleport beacons


Ordo Malleus Inquisitor: terminator armor, nemesis daemon hammer, psycannon, 3 x servo skulls

Ordo Malleus Inquisitor: terminator armor, nemesis daemon hammer, psycannon, 3 x servo skulls

3 x Henchman Warband consisting of: 3 x Acolytes w/plasma gun, 1 x psyker, 1 x Crusader

WGBL goes with a plasma TDAWG pack and Arjac goes with a melta pack. The Inquisitors each join a TDAWG pack as well. The three henchman squads go in the drop pods. The servo skulls are spread across the board to allow for more precise deep striking. The Lone Wolves start the game on the board and are easy enough to hide since they’re single models. Ideally, they work in pairs and spend the first couple of turns moving and running to support the TDAWGs dropping in. The first two pods to drop are the ones with teleport beacons and the squads inside will usually hide behind the pod for the cover save with the crusader in front to tank in need be. This group has to survive the first turn or two of enemy shooting before help arrives. If the dice are kind, then on turn two you’ll get reinforced by the units in reserve and can put the hurt on the enemy. I’ve played half a dozen games with this list so far and I’m at a %50 win rate with it. It requires more tactical play and a bit of finesse but it’s great fun.

    Hey guys just talked to Justin at the Martinez store. BIG CONGRATULATIONS I remember when we went down to San Diego 2 years ago and you talked about how you really wanted to set up shop down there. Glad you made it happen, next year if there are any big tournaments down there I’ll definitely pay a visit. Chargers are my favorite team, so def going to plan for a vacation down the road. Keep up that work you guys have come a long way from last we met. This is Dan Katz btw.

    So, the SW list was one of mine that I was kicking around when I was trying to make SW work without TWC. I haven’t played with it in a while but it’s not an illegal list. There are six units of WG Terminators which allow me to bring up to six Lone Wolves that don’t take up a slot on the force organization chart. Where is the illegality?

    It won’t stand up to the top tier WAAC lists but it does alright in normal games plus the mental image of WG Terminators teleporting into battle is pretty dang cool.

      I see where the mix up was at now. I had a typo concerning the LWs.

      It should have been:

      3 x Lone Wolves, TH/SS
      3 x Lone Wolves, FA/SS

      You are 100% right, sir! The WG do make it legal, my apologies.

    Reece, I am REALLY Curious about the Air borne IG list you are running. Sounds like a blast and my cup of tea.
    Any chance you can write an article or something? I love heavy bolter marines, I have like 6, so if you could tell me how to make them work that would be great.
