I dug out my Ltd Edition Wolf Guard 7th Ed Codex to have a read through in order to get my creative juices flowing. It’s packed with amazing art work and lore about all the Great Companies of Fenris.

I’ve decided to convert some Blade Guard using the new Assault Intercessors as the base for the minis.

I want to achieve more of a charging headlong into the fight rather than the static look of the new models.

What are my fellow brothers of the fang doing to whittle down the time till 9th hits, and what will be the first thing that you will start working on?

Space Marines are inherently tough, but the Space Wolves are particularly dangerous. They are ruthless. They are savage.

They are brutal. It begs the question why would the Emperor permit something quite so dangerous and untamed to exist?
That would be to take down another legion.

Have to admit I’m jealous, I couldn’t afford a Wolf Guard edition back then and had to settle for the Long Fang Edition myself...

Still, am planning out now my own company (I have a specific conpany icon/colour combination in mind for my Iron Fangs), and ordered a bunch of FW shoulder pads to pass around... I haven’t played in ages and am starting anew from scratch with a purely Primaris army (I know I’m gimping myself, I don’t care) so have no idea what I’m getting myself into, lol

I had to do a hell of a lot of overtime to afford the the WG Ed, especially when I bought it at Australian prices!  

The painting guide is excellent for anyone starting out with Wolves or just wanting to improve their minis. 

 

I've just spent the last few hours picking though my bits box for conversion parts.  

 

What are peoples thoughts on using the Chain Sword in the upgrade kits in place of the Master Crafted Power Swords that the Blade guard are armed with? I would paint the theeth an iced colour so it looks like a frost weapon.

I have the main part of the blade painted a blue with white marbling for my frost weapons.

Given that, at present, there are no weapons options for the squad it shouldn't be an issue at all - as long as they are clearly distinguishable as "Bladeguard" as opposed to another unit it should be fine.

 

Personally I'm planning on giving mine Axes rather than swords, but obviously they'll have to be "counts as" until such a time as GW give the option to be otherwise.

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.

Looking at the latest leak for the multi melta stats, the stormfang Gunship is going to be a serious consideration in my list now.
8 melta shots!

Well that's certainly interesting.

 

 

EDIT: Even more interesting is a change to the weapon's ability. It's damage goes to D6+2 when within half range, instead of the old rule of rolling 2d6 and taking the higher roll.  That's pretty cool.

Storm Fangs and MM Long Fangs in Pods will delete anything up to a Landraider in a single volley or strip half the wounds off an RIS Knight (more if you start piling on buffs and strats).


Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.
