With all of the huge changes going on for Space Marines right now (stats, equipment, abilities), I’m putting all purchases on hold. It just doesn’t make sense to make any plans or commitments right now, with everything in flux. Looks like we’ll need to wait for the new Marine codex and new Wolves supplement, and see how the dust settles on everything.

Can play around now with what I’ve got, but won’t keep building up this new army until I’ve got the whole picture.

For the new starters or those looking for cheap pack expansions, Val, I think it safe to still recommend the two SW Start Collecting! Boxes.

 

Start Collecting! Space Wolves

Start Collecting! Primaris Space Wolves

 

If interested, a

 

Start Collecting! Space Marines

Start Collecting! Primaris Space Marines

 

These base four will give plenty of cheap, solid Troops choices to go with for now. While the army is mostly up in the air, if Primaris are 2 or 3 Wounds, and adjusted fairly at 3, there's every reason to believe that GH's, BC's, and PA WG are going to be amazing models soon enough. And, the added models and bodies past the basics of each will only aid in rapid army expansion.

 

Space Wolves Dreadnought

 

And one of

- Space Marine Dreadnought

- Space Marine Venerable Dreadnought

 

Dread's look to be coming back. I may be jumping the gun somewhat, however this seems to be only a matter of time now.

Yea it really feels like its time for a bit of hurry up and wait.  My motivation has taken a big hit from the whirlwind of news , I  guess we will see soon eonugh what direction we should be going in ,everything feels really in flux right now.

Especially with a new codex right around the corner. It seems a good moment to delve into the pile of shame lol

So with the Blade Guard Ancient not being that much of a force multiplier, is it worth taking this guy and turning him into a Rune Priest instead, would it be more beneficial in game terms?

 

Banner snapped off, so thought pole might make a decent staff for a Rune Priest.

Yes, Dantay, that’s not a bad idea at all, especially for folks that don’t already have a Primaris Rune Priest. He can trade his default Axe for a Staff on the datasheet, so you’d be good to go for WYSIWYG.

My set up is not that far from what you originally set out with Valerian through collecting indomitus, shadowspear and prophecy of the wolf.

Thinking the Rune priest would give me one of each in different armour, if the Ancient does not work out so well.

 

Jarl

Thegn

Wolf priest

Judicar

1 squad of assault intercessors

1 bike squad

1 squad of Blade guards

1 squad of Eradicators

 

Jarl in Phobos

Thegn in phobos with grav chute

Rune priest in phobos

1 squad of infiltrators

1 squad of suppressors

1 squad of eliminators

 

Ragnar Blackmane

1 squad of Incursors
