Kinda new to all this so bare with me....
So I started back into 40k by joining an esscalation league at my local club. I figured it would be good to start something on here to coincide with it to keep me motivated and add another dimension to my hobby.
After a little bit of army swapping over the past year, I have decided to roll out a space wolves army. No idea why as when I started looking at 40k again, I found the idea of thunder wolves massively Derby..
Yet here I am with my first 500 points.....a champions of fenris detachment....of thunder wolves....
The army consists of:
5 fenrisian wolves
This is taken as a company of the great wolf detachment (the servitors serve as the elite tax). I figured this to be quite strong and a good core to build the army around.
I toyed with colours for a while. Didn't like the baby blue standard, felt the was too many grey ones about and so opted for a blue/turquoise sort of thing:
Here are some other images of my work thus far:
Still got heads, wepons and some final details/washing to do, as well as adding snow to the TWC but I am quite happy so far. We get hobby points for completed units at the start of each month so nothing required this month, but try our first game of febuary, we have to have our core 500points painted.
This weekend I had my first matche's for the league. We have to play 3 a month and these where to be my first 40k games, not off to a good start....
game 1: tyranids
This guy has 2 flyrants and 2 spores. With me only having bolt pistols, I called it a day after turn 3...
Game 2: dark eldar
A bit better this time, I made it to turn 5 before getting tabled! He had 2 raiders, 2 vipers, some wracks and other pieces. The wolves could not handle the amount of shots but did do some über damage in close combat. Still, a loss is a loss!
Game 3: nids again
This guys list was a crone and a flyrant....so we both agreed that this wouldn't be much fun and so he fielded a different list instead:
5 stealers with broolord
And at last...a fun game! These TWC are beasts in cc! Was a good match up and needed in me winning 9 points to 7! A real friendly guy who said we can have our own separate league games with him using this list instead of hi beast list to make it more fun!
Overall an interesting start, just need to get my head around rules etc...!
Any comments or criticism both positive and negative greatly welcomed and appreciated
Thanks for reading!
