Default Space Wolf

I'm thinking of starting a space wolf army and i was wondering if you could tell me how good they are and answer a few questions.


does the fenrisian wolf cost 12 points or 72 points?

Do the special rules on page 4 apply to all the space wolf models?

If i want to buy wolf guard should a buy them separately in the blister or just buy the regular termies and add some accessories to them to make them look like space wolves?

Thanx

Fenrisian Wolves are bought as an upgrade for the HQ, so its +12 points per wolf.

Yes, the special rules apply to all SW marines, but check the FAQ since most of those rules have been overwritten or gone altogether.

I take it you're talking about the Bodyguard here (since only those are worth the Term armour), and its completely up to you. It would be a lot more economical to buy the box of terms and converting, since the metal SW ones cost 13$ CND each.

Like a wolf. Chaos hounds are good models for them.

or, even better, you could use the wolves from the goblin wolf-rider box set...

as for the special rules...all except for true grit apply to all space wolf models...and while a fair few of them have been revised, none have been abolished

as for the termies...depends, you wanna try your hand at converting?? if so, you can make damn cool stuff with the regular ones, if not, the regular ones are pretty good too

as for whether space wolves are good...they're awesome . i love 'em. been playing 'em for about 6 or 7 years

I don't play SWolfs but I've faced them a fair number of times; I'd say get a Wolf Lord for your HQ and a Wolf Priest for the other; don't bother with the Iron Priests unless you're going really vehicle-heavy, which is really pointless if you're playing SWolfs. If i'm not wrong you have to have 2 HQ choices (or matbe that's 13th company) so don't make 'em too expensive.

No, you have to have 1 HQ choice for every 750 points in your army, so you can have 4 HQ at high point games.

My mistake, I reread the FAQ and realized that I was wrong (for some reason, I thought the Blood Feud rule dissapeared ???).
