Created with BattleScribe

Select the WGBL and Chaplin for the strat.

Wolfen stone to the WGBL
Plasma GH on the hunt
BC in the stormwolf
WP with the WGBL to heal and together re roll wounds of 1 and hits in fight. WGBL will have 5 S10 AP -3 D3 attacks
LF chilling in the backline with the RP
Wolfen running up the middle with second GH mid field somewhere

Mostly forming a rear gun line. Intercessors in the Azrael 4++ bubble.
And scout sniper closing out the back line
The other scout squad acting as a speed bump
The libby and Chaplin dropping in.
Give the libby eye of the unseen and the Chaplin shroud of heroes.
With lion and wolf the Chaplin is doing 4 S10 AP-3 D3 attacks rerolling failed hits
-1 to hit and together with the libby -2 LD to the opponents and fight last try and cast mind wipe for another - 1 LD then trying to cast trephination. So with the 2 or more - to LD

Would love any feed back
I dont get much chance to test play so I have just been reading these forums and mathshammering

Is this a 1850 tourney? or 2k?


Either way, there could be some improvements. Depends of what your collection is at the moment though. With DA, plasma is the thing, so your list is remiss without some hellblasters or plasma devs. IMO


Leon and the woof would be better spent on a smash master to have 5 attacks rerolling hitting on 2+ with a 3++


Just my hot take off hand

So do you have the Lion Vs Russ Duel before you begin play?

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.

Awesome as the Interrogator Chaplain model is, I don't think he's adding much to this list.

Ezekial is worth the points you pay for him over a generic Librarian.

The way I see it, there's a couple effective ways to use the Lion and Wolf strat. The first way is to mutually buff a Smash Master and Smash Lord, for S10 thunder hammers hitting on 2s with 5 attacks each. The other way is to buff a Librarian and Rune Priest so they're Ld 10 for powers where that's relevant.

And I agree, if you're going to splash some DAs into your SW list, might as well get some WotDA action. If you're going for a static backfield force, plasma Devs are probably the way to go.

Thanks for the great feedback. My apologies, the tournament is 1850 pts max 3 detachment and maximum 30 power level for any one unit
The long fangs are the SW version of Devs and generally one of the SWs best units, but your right about WotDA and I will see how many Plasma LG i can convert.
Wasn't sure how the Chaplin preformed, thanks for the feed back, i might see if i can fit in a smash captain instead

It is worth considering taking an Apothecary from both codexes.  As that would eliminate any possible downside to running that stratagem.


Spend the CP... both automatically get the bonus before the game begins.

Both have a 50% chance to take a wound.

If an Apothecary is near by, and if they take that wound, they are healed automatically.

The space wolves wolf priest can heal wounds, dont know where I could fit an apothecary in.
