Hi all

 

Just wondering if anyone has any details on the champions of fenris book.   What are the new rules,  options for wolfguard troops?  new wargear etc?   I read the blurd on GW website and so far it just looks like new traits and formations however I am hoping there is more to it than that?

So I spoke about 4 minutes too soon ...

 

from faeit

 

Champions of Fenris:

Hardback supplemental codex
80 pp
Covers Logan Grimnar's Great Company
Full 600 year history of Logan from chapter induction to the current time.
3 of Logan's greatest sagas covered in detail

New FOC
7 new Formations
Warlord Traits
Relics
6 missions

 

So no more wolfguard troops,   this is a big shame I think especially with the points drops for wolfguard jetpacks and bikes you could of had quite a varied army with just wolfguard.

That doesn't rule out wolf guard troops as far as I can tell..?

My guess though, is that we'll probably see at least one of those formations making some kind of Logan wing (I heard whisperings to the effect that it may be 2-6 units of WG and granting some special boon to WG packs, instead of ObjSec, on 4chan, but it sounded like wishlisting as it was so vague. That said it's likely, I think). I am just hoping it is sufficiently flexible and served up as a small enough (repeatable) chunk that it is useable... e.g a formation with Logan and 1-3 packs of WG (tad/power), and some nice command benefits, would be a nice tack-on to a SWU or CAD detachment at the 2000 points level.

I think it extremely likely that at least SOME of the 1-click collections on the GW website will be formations in the codex. So, Rose Princes, I personally am hoping we'll see a Logan + 3 units TWC + 20 fenrisian wolves formation in the supplement (and am hoping it can be adapted to other great companies, i.e. by allowing Harald or a generic wolf lord instead).

Picking up my Pre Ordered Wolf Guard Edition this morning in 2 hrs from this post, will let you know soon as I get it. I got # 473 of # 500, The box set is fantastic, 3 Books, the set of artwork and the Objective coins and I must say, it's worth every sent I paid. This set is so much better quality than the Ork Collectors set.

wow, so thats where the good relics were hiding.

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 Posted Image Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 Posted Image millenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

fire in the blood is quite powerful as far as personal traits go. Rerolling a 2+ or 3++ each turn (especially if you have IWND, for that matter) is pretty sweet.

 

I assume the armour cannot be taken alongside a TWM?

that is a very cool formation. And actually kinda scary that it doesn't have compulsory troops. You can have all your elites from that formation and all your troops from a CAD. Crazy!!

only real limitation it has is if you take it for WS5 Twc you have to take some elites. But that could be Iron Priests on TWM if you wanted. Though they would lack the extra WS.


they sound exciting. You going to type them all out? Sounds like a lot of work. Well, if you do, I can guarantee you an audience of at least 1;)))

well we can assume the makeup of some of those formations - e.g. Arjac's shieldbrothers has him, TDAWG, in a crusader. Which would be potentially a very useable little chunk of a formation to plug and play into an army.

looks like they haven't constrained the formations too much (I assume the TDAWG pack can be any size?) also, the stormfang could fit an ObjSec grey hunters pack...

nice. I wonder how that interacts with joined ICs? When turn 1 comes round, the IC would already be joined to the pack so part of the 'unit'...

 

a bit of a shame they don't get some sort of battle focus to overcome tele-cluster and consequential plasma cannon death en masse, but hey, cant be too greedy.

Grimnar's Wolf Council:

 

Ulrick the Slayer, Njal Stormcaller, 1 Rune Priest and 1 Iron Priest

Wise Council: an army with this formation, can reroll the dice for determining who deploys first and adds +2 to the dice roll for Seize the Initiative.

if you're fielding those HQs anyway, its a freebie. Almost no reason not to take it.
