Goonhammer review is up. Bolts of Morkai looks very solid.

The darks greatest gift is the light itself: as days are defined by the nights that divide them, as stars are defined by the infinite dark through which they wheel, the dark embraces the light, and brings forth from the center of itself. With each victory of the light, it is the dark that wins.

The brightest light casts the darkest shadow.

Don’t know about the video preview, but Goonhammer have their review of Saga of the Beast up now.

I’m very glad I magnetised the power Fists on my Intercessor Pack Leaders in case we got Thunder Hammers for them!

Only the enemies of the Imperium need fear the fangs of Russ' sons! Well, ok, the enemies of the Imperium, the Adminstratum and the Dark angels and...you get the picture, right?

Iron breaker helm auto completes your warlords deed, to buff it to anaura if it kills something.


Wolf tail is cool, -2 to all psykic tests within 18"

Twolves get a mortal wound charge via strats?
Wolf gaurd get a mortal wound on 6 via strats

With the helm you need to kill a character and wolf guard strat is only against infantry :(

The thing about the character is you can not declare him but if he is a cheap little guard character or something you could have piled near him and knock him with the helm. Also helps finish off a weak unit that you want to clear so your units can hit the next line of things.

I'm a little confused as to why Ulrik didn't get an update in this book. Looks like we will have a day 1 FAQ on our hands like Shadowsun. Looks like litanies will fall into line with all others but if Ulrik can keep his oath and chant then we might see more use of him.

Wow, so first of all what is this feeling having solid competition for the relic slot?

This stuff sounds pretty great actually and seems like it’s going to open up a lot of synergies and plays for us. I’m excited to dive it.

Wolg Lord with stalker bolt rifle and Morkais Teeth Bolts. If you hit cause 1 MW and all attacks re-roll to wound 1 against target unit. Lieutenant buff anywhere sounds really good.

I was thinking the same but a BL to keep cost down if he’s going to be a marker light :)

It makes my OG 8th BL long Fang babysitter pretty nasty now.

I am a big Fan of that Shadow Spear Phobos Battle Leader, but never knew if I where going to really utilize him. Morkais Teeth Bolts are certainly an incentive.

I love that we can give runic armor to our units again and that it counts as the 2+ it used to.

The question is does the update count towards the runic armor we can give our priests?

Hey! Twolves finally got them cheaper after what 2 years? I see a real use case for running them cheap with chainsword/shield.

Cheap is the way to go now, use them to clear chaff and if they survive take on the tanks behind with the 1CP strat for two damage teeth and claws. Maybe spend another CP to re-roll wound rolls of 1 and they can become pretty dangerous to just about anything.

and combo the wolf guard strat to generate mortal wounds + they now have a mortal wound charge and emergency bite.

 

which I take is what they gave them to eat through horde armies

TWC got 5 point stormshields in chapter approved

Wyrdbane is a dark horse for a relic. Stick that on a Phobos rune priest/primaris rune priest and theyve 5 attacks with that statline. Add on fury of the wolf spirits

Sorta disappointed that there was no Successors strategem, given that now the Wolves apparently have Primaris Successors. On the other hand I had already expected that as GW seems to be ignoring that whole subject outside of Black Library.

Just pre-ordered the box set from Goblin Games. £82 with free delivery, splitting the box with my Orky brother so I'm getting the wolf side for £37. Pretty pleased as I don't have any of the troops

Given how that went with Blood Angels, you're probably better off not having any successor rules...they seem to be very limiting in the case of non-codex chapters.

while imnot a fan of our super doctrine, I will just treat it as a bonus.

 

you cant really rely on that, if you hit 6's  cool, if not my list needs to be good enough without it

 

thats also why im not a fan of incursors, being reliant on a 6 isn't being reliable


im trying to make out any other point changes but its pretty hard to read the youtube vids

While I had loved to see it on a Stormwolf, I tend to see them more often than Stormfangs, at least this way there is an incentive to maybe consider him?!

That's more of a personal thing for me. I only play homebrew chapters. If I ever played Blood Angels or Space Wolves, I would create a successor chapter first before any more plans.

 

Of course in a friendly game nobody would care, but it's still annoying for me.

Yeah, after reading the goonhammer review I’ve got mixed feelings.

I am really happy that we definitely get some nice relics to choose from now, a lot of really great close combat related buffs, and one or two small shooting buffs, but I feel like it falls just short by leaving out any way to help us make it into combat before being shot off the table or whittled down to be too weak to finish the job.

It feels like getting a lot of cool toys for Christmas but you can’t really play with them yet because your parents didn’t get batteries. Only the batteries may never come. So you can’t really complain that you didn’t get anything nice (because you did, I mean you really did) and so you feel like you have to hide your disappointment so that you’re not called ungrateful.

We’ll see. Maybe it will be enough and my disappointment will fade as I start winning a few more games. I think I’ll try to stay cautiously optimistic that this helps on the tabletop until I’ve had a chance to play some games.
