This formation is intended to represent (as well as capture the 'feel of') one of the 12 Space Wolf Great Companies. The formation does not follow the Space marine Codex so its size is not limited to that of a Battle Company (various sources give the approx strength of each Great Company as between 120 - 1000 marines) although it must follow some of the somewhat archaic rules of that Chapter. Also as there are no reserve companies from which to attach Speeder squadrons, Support tanks etc (which would be crewed by members of the Great Company itself) these are included as part of the organisation.
Formation: 300 pts + Cost of models
1 Wolf Lord (Ragnar Blackmane or Logan Grimnar 'may' be selected as the Great Company) with 4 + Wolf Guard Body Guard's
1+ Wolf Priest (Ulrick the slayer 'may' be Selected) - may have 4 + Wolf Guard Body Guard's
1+ Rune Priest - may have 4 + Wolf Guard's
1+ Wolf Guard Battle leader - may have 4 + Wolf Guard's
0-1 Venerable Dreadnaught
Note that you may not have more Wolf Priest's and Rune Priest's than there are Wolf Guard Battle leader's
Note: There must be at least 1 HQ
Choice for each 750 points (rounding up) of the Army.
1 Iron Priest for each Dreadnaught or landraider in the force
6+ Grey Hunter Squads
6+ Blood Claw Squads (up to half the Bloodclaw squads must be Troops - the rest may be Bike or Jump Pack squads)
0+ Speeder Squadrons
0+ Attack Bike Squadrons
3+ Long Fang Packs
0-1 Leman Russ Exterminator
May have Upto 1 Land raider (of any varient) per each Character with a Wolf Guard Body Guard and Long Fang Pack in the army.
Note: In addition to the above minumums etc you may have one 'each' of the following - Bloodclaw Squads (of all combined types), Dreadnaught, Land Speeder Squadrons, Attack Bike Squadrons, Whirlwinds, Predators, Vindicators - for each Grey Hunter Squad in the army. I.E. 6 Grey Hunter Squads up to 6 of each of the mentioned units
Note: You may have 1 Long Fang squad for every 2 Grey Hunter Squad in the army.
Note: You may have 1 Wolf Gaurd Squad leader for each Grey Hunter Pack, Bloodclaw Pack of any type (but the Wolf Guard must be equipped with a Bike if in a bike squad or a jump pack if leading a jump pack squad) and Long Fang Pack.
Transport - Any unit may ride (at the points given in C:SM
) in a Drop pod, Rhino or Razor Back so long as the unit (including attached Wolf Guard Pack Leader) can fit inside.
Space Wolf Scouts - These Elite recon specalists operate outside of the remit and control of the Wolf Lord's and so are not included as part of the Datasheet.
Hungry for honour
- All units in the army may make a Scout move so long as they can draw LOS
to the Wolf Lord (or his Transport if embarked). This move is made after all models are deplyed but before the start of turn 1. Also this move cannot be a bike 'Turbo boost' or 'flat out' move by a skimmer and must follow the normal rules for scout moves.
- Also any that can draw LOS
to any character may be counted as being Stubborn for the purpose of Leadership tests (obviously this makes any SW character Stubborn). Long Fangs are always considered to be stubborn.
- If either the Wolflord and (if attached) Venerable Dreadnaught are slain/destroyed then leave the slain/destroyed model on the table. It now counts as an objective.
