Default Thinking about starting 13th company

Heya, I have been thinking a lot about starting a 13th company list.

I don't have the codex yet, but i was thinking about
1 wolf priest, wolfen and frost blade artificer armor/termy mabee powerfist?
1 wolf lord, powerfist
1 rune priest what is his special weapon? what does it do? what else is worth giving him?
what about a power fist again?
1 storm claws w/2 powerfists, 2 plasma pistols leader w/powerfist, mark of wulfen and plasma pistol (question, do i have to roll the leader sepratly?)
1 wolfen as many models as possible (10?)
3 grey slayers, full, leader powerfist, 2 meltas Mark of wulfen? how many points does the mark cost?
2 full dire wolf squads
1 long fang squad all lascannons

about how many points am i up to here? is 2 plasma pistols and 2 powerfists legal for storm claws?
perhaps i should split up the long fang squad into two units with 2 lascannons each. or what about 2 units of them, 2 with heavy bolters and 2 with lascannons, basicly the heavy bolters work as ablative wounds and get to shoot at infantry to boot!

tanks for any help!

also, if i just play 13th, i don't realy need the space marine army list do I? most people know what almost all space marine wargear does, and all the ones i would use are in the space wolves codex no? It would kinda suck to pay 40 bucks to play one army without any models yet!

You really need to buy the Codex, we can't help you if you don't know the exact rules.

You can find the answers for your questions in your rulebook and Codex.

The Space Marine Codex is required to play 13th Company.

now aside from answering question sthat can be answered by the codex (jsut look up one at GW!) id give this squad two lascannons and two heavy bolters as it can divide its fire. Allowing you to tackle a tank and a squad of infantry in the same turn. And since you have only one squad its a shame to make it specialised

Hey there.

I gotta say that the Space marines codex really Isn't required here.

The Space Wolves Codex, 40k rule book and Eye of Terror codex however will be required.

13th company are a great army, super cool. But they have a low model count, the army list you've detailed there would probably be 2000-2500 points.

Overall don't expect them to be to competetive, but have fun with them and make them look good.

Also Grey Slayers = Awesomness incarnate.

actualy this list is about exactly 2000.

If i find that they are not competitive enough i can always use them as normal space wolves!

also only got like a year til the next codex no? i don't got any worries i don't think. My biggest atraction to this army is the low model count, meaning i have to buy a lot less models! the other big attractions are squads that eaqual gigantic dread equivilents and my second favorite 40k models affter tau. I am gonna throw in some chaos space marine sprews to realy convert them up ( power fist and such)

I find this sentence amusing.

Yeah the 13th company are a super cool army, I'm staring an army of them as well.

As of September 1st when the Tales of Four Gamers starts I'll be building them up pretty quick.

Good luck, and Russ protect!
