You would be so horribly outnumbered... nonetheless that is truly awesome! 4 squads of objective taking terminators? Impressive to say the least. Just hope there's not a lot of AP 2 out there

The bad part is if I wanted to field a 2000 pt Terminator army...1675 of the points could be all termies.... I found 40 Terminators while going through my old marine stuff that i got from a trade wayyyyyyy back in the day. I figured what the hell somthin you dont see all the time....

You might try to drop the LR and get a large Grey Hunter Unit in there for more bodies. It would be cool to try that list as is.

Since he seems set on playing Wolfwing, I'll avoid giving stupid suggestions like "bring units that aren't part of the theme".

I would, however, like to know why you have a Drop Pod. I don't have the Wolf Dex yet, but Wolf Guard Terminators can Deep Strike can't they?

If not, then I'll have to give a lot more thought into how I think you should run this...

Dude Wargamer! You of all people should know that the Space Wolve have a deep mistrust of Deep Striking! They rather Drop Pod in.
Drop Pods would be the way to go, but Wolfwing, LOL. That would be cool to see
I would like to see Wolfwing and Deathwing go at it.

I know Space Wolves hate teleporters, but they used to hate Drop Pods as well! That magically vanished in the "in-between" years, so I assumed GW said sod it to the whole affair.


In that case, I'd consider ditching the Land Raider and focusing on Drop Pods. Deep Strike is very useful to Deathwing armies, so it should be a valuable asset to Wolfwing as well.

It is the Space Wolves deep mistrust of things arcane (teleporting) and prefered their feet on the ground as Russ intended. Remember there was I think 9 years since the last SW dex came out, so is why there is no mention of Drop Pods before. I do think it is cool that now we do have the chance to do an "All Terminator Army" So who get the credit for coining the term "WOLFWING" ?

Page 61 in the armoury where it is explaining how the different types of armour works it says at the end of the terminator entry that they won't teleport in since they like to fight with their feet on the ground.
