Joining Leman Russ on the battlefield the Wolf-kin Of Russ are now ravaging foes on the battlefield with Forge World, tearing apart Thousand Sons and other traitors with their huge claws and blood-soaked maws.
This is one of the parts of the Space Wolves that really appeals to me. Sure I like their own unique style but adding proper wolves into the mix just takes things to another level. Monstrous wolves then bump things up to eleven.
“Said to be companions of the Wolf King from his earliest days as a foundling upon the bleak desolation of Fenris, these two creatures are beasts of prodigious size, formidable intelligence and a physical power that beggars belief in purely ‘natural’ creatures of their type.
The guardians of the Wolf King’s hearth, from time to time when he calls they follow alongside him into battle as they may, ripping apart the hated foe limb from limb.”
Inside the set you get two different wolves that work as a special HQ choice in your Space Wolves army. Rules for them will be in the upcoming Horus Heresy book, Inferno.
It’s nice to see them slashing their way through Space Marines although it would also be neat to see them remove the traitors so that they could simply be in the middle of ripping through whatever enemy you may be facing.
Maybe you could even paint up these unfortunates in the colours of your regular opponents Legion?
What do you think?
