Is there any background information on the Dark wolves? Just wondering sinice is is probably the first form of heretic space wolves that GW has done.
"You strive for Victory that is obvious. What may be less obvious is the nature of victory. There are circumstances in which you can destroy the enemey utterly, without loss to your own forces, and yet the victory will be his. In all situations, you must first decide on the nature of victory, and then take steps to secure it. Avoid the instinct to fight first and think later."

I like that it is kept open. It lets us imagine. For example, 3 characters that I thought up are blood brothers. One of them turned against the chapter and went with the Dark Wolves
Night Lords: 2000

Raven Guard: ~1000

There is a story in the new Chaos Space Marines Codex about the Huron Blackheart, and his Red Corsairs, and how they capture a Space Wolf ship. It mentions how after a few short hours the Red Corsairs looked to be in control of the ship except for one area where the Space Wolves mounted a well fortified defense. When the wolves finally thought they were going to be able to start an advance and take back there ship, brothers turned on each other, and from that the Dark Wolves were born. Huron excepted the Dark Wolves into the Red Corsairs and they now pilot the Wolf of Fenris pirate ship.
It is the way of Fenris. We stay as long as we can. Fight as hard as we can. Kill as much as we can. Only when we can do no more do we move on.

THEY ARE WORDS OF THE HERETIC AND IT MUST BE BURN TO A CINDER AT THE STAKE BUT THESE WORDS ARE TRUE NONETHELESS.

It is true the a few misguided disloyal few betrayed their Wolf brothers but it was only a small number. The rest of the ship, the Wolves crew and their free will thralls picked up arms and rallied against the intruders. Huron did not take our ship with light casualties, I like to think that he suffered quite a few.

Huron must be hunted down and be killed, actually, he is killed in my book of "The Dead Bastards".

Even with free upgrades and made a scoring unit, the Tactical Squad still is the "unwanted stepchild" of the Space Marine army.


if Ragnar gets a new model he will be made of Beard, Cheese and Frostblade.

The wolves did not turn traitor. Huron stole Wolf geneseed and made chaos space wolves. Then he wrote the books saying that wolves turned traitor. After all, who else is there to contest his story?

Yep. And they all died ... didn't even manage to blow up the ship to keep it from falling into enemy hands. Failures, I tell you. Failures all of them! :D

Well, the idea is to save the ship if at all possible ya know... if those dirty traitor scum hadn't gone to Huron, the Wolves would have been able to take back the ship and therefore save a whole lot of material and money in repairing the ship instead of finding a new one.

By the way, that's all hypothetical as ALL OF THIS IS LIES! LIES I TELL YOU!

I betcha any money that those Wovles fought harder than the other group of Wolves. Instead of telling the truth that these men fought and died a honourable death, laying dead beneath mounds of traitorous corpses. Huron degraded them by saying that they betrayed their comrades.

LIES, ALL LIES PERPETRATED BY HURON.

They should've known you can't find Chaos. It's in all of us.

Well all that proves that it is dangerous to listen to voices inside your soul, even in the 41th millineum

Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules. 13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be. DepthCharge on the Space Wolves

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

"The Fell Hand is a name that has been passed on through out the Legion. When one warrior bearing it died, the name is left to be earned by another. Thus it was passed from Floki to Volund to Erik to Geigor. And then the tradition died, because censored.gif Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 censored.gifmillenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

I thought the wulfen made it impossible for the wolves to turn to chaos? Isn't that why there is a 13th company in the eye of terror, fighting chaos in it's heart? In the ragnar books it talks about how the wulfen inside acts as a sort of protection against chaos. Oh and Huron is chaos, he is not capable of admitting how bady he was beaten and just took their armor and says they turned.

Exactly! There are only two states in which a Space Wolf can exist - Wulfen or Space Wolf. Period.
