List Review

Formation: The Blackmanes

HQ: Ragnar Blackmane

Troops: Three units of 5 Blood Claws, each with one flamer and in a drop pod

Four units of 5 Grey Hunters, each with one melta gun and in a drop pod

Elites: One unit of 5 Wolf Guard, all with combi-meltas and in a drop pod

One unit of 5 Wolf Scouts, all with bolters and camo-cloaks

Heavy: One unit of 4 Long Fangs, with three multi-meltas and in a drop pod

Formation: Wyrdstorm Brotherhood

5 Rune priests, all mastery level 1 with rune axes

Allied Detachment: Space Wolves

HQ: Ulrik the Slayer

Troops: One unit of 5 Blood Claws, with one flamer and in a drop pod

Elites: One unit of Wulfen, four with thunder hammer/storm shields and one Wulfen Pack leader with frost claws

Fast Attack: Drop Pod

1850 points total

I’m not sure how much of an explanation of my thoughts you are looking for, but here goes: my goal is to use the Ulrik and Wulfen bubbles to be force multipliers across as many units as possible.  I know how weak I am against going second when paired with another drop pod army.  Otherwise I’m loving the idea of doing pure Space Wolves with no TWC for the first time in well over a year.

Thanks in advance for your time.

    that Blackmane formation needs an aux choice so its gets the cool counter-charge rule

      Yup exactly. But otherwise it is a good list. You’ve been playing with Blackmanes right?

      • Novastar June 10, 2016 12:56 pm #

        I’m still building it , so many drop pods lol

        • Grunt June 10, 2016 1:20 pm #

          Double Blackmanes. 28 drop pods!!

      Since allies detachment cannot be the primary detachment, the Blackmane (Spacewolves) formation needs to be the Primary Detachment. Therefore, can an allies detachment be the same faction as the Primary detachment? Does this then make this list invalid?!?

    I like that first iTunes comment, “like I said, if you like hardcore sex then you are going ro love this podcast.”

    Containers are not a network. They are battlefield debris

    I am not a Spacewolves player but by the looks of the list it means that the formation (Spacwolves) will be the Primary Detachment and that the Allies Detachment will be Spacewolves as well. Doesn’t it specify in the rule book that allies detachment cannot be the same faction as the Primary Detachment? Does this therefore make this list invalid?!?
