I’ve been pouring over the Space Wolves codex, sifting through my collection, and hunting around the web for tips and deals in the effort to build a list that will be effective and doesn’t cost me a lot more money. After a little play-testing (and even some modelling!) I’ve settled on a starting list at 2000 points:
– Raemos (Counts as Bjorn) with Plasma Cannon
Dreadnought with Multimelta, Heavy Flamer, Extra Armor, and Drop Pod
Wolf Guard : 5 Terminators with Combi-melta (3 Power Sword, 1 Wolf Claw, 1 Chainfist;) 2 Terminators with Power Sword, Storm Bolter, and Cyclone Missile Launcher (attached to small Grey Hunter Squads;) Power Armor, bolter (attached to a Long Fang squad;) and 2 Power Armor, bolter, Powerfist (attached to larger Grey Hunters.)
6 Grey Hunters with 1 Plasma Gun
5 Grey Hunters with 1 Plasma Gun
9 Grey Hunters : Meltagun, Mark of the Wulfen, Wolf Standard, Power Sword in Drop Pod
10 Grey Hunters: 2 Plasma Gun, Mark of the Wulfen, Wolf Standard, Power Sword
5 Long Fangs: 1 Plasma Cannon, 3 Missile Launcher
5 Long Fangs: 1 Lascannon, 3 Missile Launcher
Land Raider: Lascannons/Heavy Bolter
The basic idea here is that the first two pods land with a dredd and termies for a forward strongpoint while Bjorn and the Landraider spearhead the push forward. Two smaller squads with attached CML give me rear scoring units and add to the long ranged support provided by the Long Fangs. The third pod can add to the front line where needed or land on a neglected objective later in the game. Bjorn’s re-roll for first turn helps increase the chance to cripple enemy transports before they can move into position.
It may not be an optimal list but I have all of the parts and it should be solid enough to get by while I decide what to buy next (and scrounge up the money to do so!) Now that I’ve got my goal properly set I can focus on modelling and painting so that you can start seeing more pictures and less rambling from old Kamui. For now I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures of my couts-as-Bjorn in progress:
