Return of the Young King

That's right the allslayer has returned! I decided to make a more fluff oriented but still competitive army list for my wolves.

The guys at my LGS do 2k games more ... fine by me. So here's my new 2000 point Space Wolves army list led by Ragnar Blackmane himself! You'll notice I give my other HQ models and my Wolf Guard models names. Helps to keep track of the units as well as you will see by the unit name which wolf guard is fighting with them.

Ragnar Blackmane
Skjold Stormcrusher (Rune Priest)
 - Power Armor, Bolt Pistol, Rune Axe, Frag & Krak, Chooser of the Slain, Wolftooth Necklace
Bolverk Nightclaw (Wolf Priest)
 - Power Armour, Crozius, Wolf Amulet, Plasma Pistol, Frag & Krak, Wolftail Talisman

Wolf Guard pack
- Burek Fangfist (Power Armor, Combi-Melta, Power Fist)
- Hrothgar Longtooth (Power Armor, Combi-Melta, Power Fist)
-Jurgen Ironbrow (Power Armor, Combi-Melta, Power Fist)
-Ivarr Krakenfist (Terminator Armor, Power Fist, Stormbolter, Cyclone Missile Launcher)
-Hakon Razorfang (Power Armor, Combi-Melta, Power Fist)

Wolf Scout Squad(6)
 - Boltguns, Bolt Pistols, Frag & Krak Grenades, Meltagun, Sniper Rifle

Grey Hunter Squad Fangfist(8)
 - Boltguns, Bolt Pistols, Chainswords, Frag & Krak Grenades, Meltagun, Power Fist, Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen, Drop Pod, deathwind launcher

Grey Hunter Squad Longtooth(8)
Boltguns, Bolt Pistols, Chainswords, Frag & Krak Grenades, Meltagun, Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen, Drop Pod

Grey Hunter Squad Ironbrow(9)
 - Boltguns, Bolt Pistols, Chainswords, Frag & Krak Grenades, Meltagun, Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen, Drop Pod

Grey Hunter Squad (10)Boltguns, Bolt Pistols, Chainswords, Frag & Krak Grenades, Meltagun, Power Fist, Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen, Rhino

Blood Claw Squad Razorfang(8)
Bolt Pistols, Chainswords, Frag & Krak Grenades, Flamer, Power Fist, Drop Pod

Long Fang Squad Krakenfist(6)
 - Boltgun, Bolt Pistols, Chainsword, Frag & Krak Grenades, (2)Plasma Cannons, (3) Missile Launchers

Ragnar will deploy with Grey Hunter Squad Fangfist in a drop pod. Skjold Stormcrusher will deploy with Grey Hunter squad Longtooth in a drop pod, and Bulverk Nightclaw will deploy with Blood Claw squad Razorfang in a drop pod.

Like I said earlier, the squads that have a name are named after the Wolf Guard attached to them. The grey hunters in the rhino and Long Fang squad Krakenfist deploy on the board while all the rest are in drop pods or outflanking (scout squad)

I wanted an overall fluff list. I may pick up another drop pod and put the 10-man Grey Hunter squad in that instead of a rhino.

I'm hoping to play test the list sometime in the next week or so. I'll post with results and maybe some pics!

Welcome 2011

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile I've been swamped with holiday tasks. I just wanted to say Happy New Year to all my friends and followers of my blog. This year should see me finish up my Space Wolves including some pre-heresy models to go along with Leman Russ into Battle! Maybe I'll even start working on my empire army for WHFB! Who knows. Anyway keep checking back for new posts and good luck in your own gaming adventures!

More Desert Scenery

Last week I picked up the Imperial Sector boxed set of buildings to make some new scenery for my desert table I've been gaming on. It's much more fun than playing out in the wastes with just hills and mesas. So I got it home and started assembling some buildings. I really liked some of the ones that were in the battle reports in this month's White Dwarf. So looked at them for some inspiration. After assembling and gluing them to a hardboard base I decided to clip up a bunch of the sprue the buildings came on and glue it down around the base of the buildings for rubble. Then just glued some sand to the base and on top of the sprue.

Next up was to primer and paint the buildings. Also I found my last piece of moonscape so figured I'd do up a crater for this table as well. I primed them all black and got out my gw spray gun and sprayed a coat of vermin brown onto my new structures. Next up I did an overbrush of Tausept Ochre and finished off with a drybrush of bleached bone. As you can see in the pics, they came out nicely.

I figured while I was at it I'd also assemble and paint my Honoured Imperium set. So I assembled everything and primed it up and painted the broken aquilla and the ruined piece of building to match the other scenery for the desert table. I figured I'd use the Space Marine statue on various tables so went with a bronze color for it and a cement color for the base. So first up was a coat of tin bitz on the statue and an overbrush of codex grey on the base. Next I did a drybrush of dwarf bronze on the statue and a drybrush of graveyard earth on the base. Finally I finished off the base with a drybrush of bleached bone. For the statue I did a drybrush of shining gold. Now I could have stopped here but wanted it to look weathered and old so I decided to give it some oxidation by doing a wash of hawk turquoise mixed with a touch of snot green and some of the old gw green wash (from like 98) as I couldn't seem to find my thraka green wash. After diluting all this with water I went about adding wash into recesses on the status and around rivets, etc. As you can see in the pic, I think it came out rather well.

New Land Raider Achilles

Those lance weapons make you want to stop taking a land raider in your army list? Well here's the answer... The Land Raider Achilles! It's gonna give you 4 models less transport capabnility (6 models), and loses its assault ramp, so only has doors on the sides, but boasts twin-linked multi-meltas on the sponsons and a hull-mounted thunderfire cannon! Thanks to its Feromantic Invulnerability lance weapons don't do their dirty deed against it and melta weapons don't get their plus one at all. As a matter of fact it reduces the damage result by 1. So it will never explode unless hit with a strength "D" weapon!

Finally, a way Space Wolves can take a thunderfire cannon! Check it out:

Space Wolves vs Orks and vs Chaos

So I played two games today. I finally took on Matt's orks and then This evening took on Duane's Word Bearers.

So Matt and I finally got together at the GW White Marsh store for a game of 40k today. 2000 points. I have been playing my new 2k list. Matt brought out a TON of boyz. I think overall he had like 200 or so models on the table! he had like 6 - 30 boy mobz plus some support. we played a pitched battle set up with the mission being annihilation.

Of course This was a tall order for me to be able to win. Though gave it my best but in the end, I just couldn't take out enough boyz before he wiped me off the table.

Then this evening I took on Duane's Word Bearer Chaos marines list! his list contained 2 15-man marine squads with icon bearers, a defiler, vindicator, 3 lesser demon squads, 1 demon prince, a greater demon, and a lord and squad in terminator armor.

Well we decided to play seize ground and 12" pitched battle. Duane rolled higher then me and decided he would let me go first... BAD IDEA! I wound up winning the game with some highlights being one mark of the wolfen model being turned into a spawn, all 3 squads of lesser demons being destroyed in hand-to-hand combat, and the DP being destroyed after 3 full turns of hand-to-hand. In the end I had one objective of 3 and the foul forces of chaos were whittled down to a small threat. It was nice to get a win! Next time I hope Duane won't let his opponent go first when he rolls higher! Will be playing more games with my new 2k list. It seems to be doing well overall.
