Army Showcase: Sam's Space Wolves

"Blood of Fenris is on your hands, and there will be a reckoning between us, Magnus. This I swear upon the blade of Mjalnar" - Russ

I have been playing Space Wolves since I first started 40k many years ago. Since then, I have dabbled with other chapters (Crimson Fists, Salamanders, Ultramarines to name a few) but I have always come back to the wolves. I love their fluff and I often find that reading a space wolf related book will inspire me to paint some more models.

Earlier this year, the Warzone Fenris series was annouced GW which saw the Space Wolves embark on a great hunt to recover all the lost wulfen from across the galaxy. As a result, I dusted off all my old models and decided to repaint them and for the first time, decided on a Great Company to model them after. Krom Dragongaze and his Drakeslayers. Krom has a fantastic model and got an updated profile in the Curse of the Wulfen supplement. The Drakeslayers also got a nice formation in the same supplement so it seemed like the time was right.

Over the last year, I have slowly been repainting (and in some cases, painting) my wolves. 

Below are what I have finished so far.

Venerable Dreadnoughts, Loki Redshield & Skjaldulf Frostbreath

Loki Redshield, my old custom wolf lord who fell in glorious battle many years ago against the Tau.

Skjaldulf Frostbreath, armed with Helfrost cannon and frostclaw.

Beware enemies of Russ!

A portion of Krom's Wolf Guard

The Red Wolf (L) and Olvir Fellhands

Pack leader Ingvar The Great (L) & Asmund Wyrdbane

The terminators of the Drakeslayers are not to be underestimated. It is told that they have even slain a Demon Prince of Slannesh and lived to tell the tale.

Canis Wolfborn/ Havard Frost-talon & his Thunderwolf Cavalry

Grey Hunters of the Drake Slayers

These guys are vital for securing objectives.

2 Rune Priests

3x Long Fangs, keeping the main army safe from afar.

So there is everything I have finished so far. On the table I have my Wulfen, Krom Dragongaze and a few more terminators to add some more firepower to that squad. Keep an eye on the blog for the next instalment of the Space wolf showcase.
