|Winter is Coming!|
The idea behind this list is to take full advantage of the special rule, Cunning of the Wolf, that allows for every unit to outflank on a 6+. It also allows a special character to join a troop unit to outflank on a 4+. In addition, each round starting with round 2, one unit is allowed to automatically come in without rolling. So if you need a heavy hitter, they can roll in Turn 2 looking to bring the pain.
Now this list is built around hopefully Outflanking the Crap out of everything.
HQ: Total - 375 Pts.
Rune Priest Level 2 in the Armour of Russ with a Rune Sword - 120
Rune Priest Level 2 in Terminator Armour with Rune Staff - 110
Ulrik The Slayer - Warlord - 145
Elites: Total - 110 Pts.
Iron Priest - 55
Iron Priest - 55
Heavy Support: Total - 765 Pts.
Land Raider with Mult Melta - 260
Land Raider Redeemer with Multi Melta - 250
Stormfang Gunship with 2 TL Multi Meltas, TL Lascannon, and Helfrost Destructor - 255
Troops: Total - 600 Pts.
Blood Claws (X3) - 60 each for 180
Blood Claws with LazBack and Hunter Killer Missile - 145
Blood Claws with Stormwolf with TL Las Cannon, TL Helfrost Cannon, and 2x TL Heavy Bolter - 275
Now, the beauty of this is that I can take each of the Blood Claws and load them up with whatever Independent Character is needed for the job. For example, I need my Land Raiders to be alive or possibly repair, then I add in the Iron Priests. I want my Flyers to bring in troops and hold the fort down with some Psyker D, then I throw a Blood Claw pack and Rune Priest or Ulrik together.
The main "tactic" with this army is that for each unit I roll a D6 and on a 6 I get Outflank, and with the Space Wolves Acute Senses, I have a 90% success rate of bringing these guys on where I need them, when I need them, and bringing what I need. This, as I understand it, will be conferred to their Dedicated transport or to their transport that they are in. Now of course, this is hoping it isn't FAQed and of course I would check this with a Tournament before bringing it, but I like the feel of it. It isn't quite 5 edition spam mech list, but it has that kind of traditional flair that I like. Plus who doesn't like the idea of outflanking a flyer or two, or maybe even the Godhammer.
So Hopefully this list has that flair for the Dramatic and can have a couple of units do something awesome.
Until Next Winter.
