Turns out this is from 'Ard Boyz a few weeks back. The army consisted of lots of Grey Hunters and Long Fangs joined by Wolf Guard in Terminator Armour and led by Logan Grimnar -all on foot.
Apparently there were just too many of them to kill.
We've talked about footslogging Space Wolves in the past, but never really tried it out for ourselves. We've been too content to hide our Space Wolves inside Rhino transports and drive forward, firing smoke launchers.
The thing is, a Rhino costs 35pts. So buy ditching the Rhino, your 7-man Grey Hunter packs (led by a Wolf Guard of course) go up to 9-man. Then for another 15pts you can buy 1 more Grey Hunter, giving you a free special weapon.
So overall you're spending 10pts on an 11th model with a special weapon in exchange for ditching your transport. Will those 3 models make much of a difference when it comes to taking casualties as you run across the board though?
Personally, I just see the army being slow and getting shot a lot. But when you pitch it against other Marine lists, which tend to drive down your throat at high speed...can you drown them in sheer weight of numbers?
But let's not forget that Logan Grimnar leads this mob of Space Wolves. That means he can sit back, giving Tank Hunter to some Long Fangs to pop any nasty tanks, before moving forward and using his High King ability to give all Space Wolf packs in 18" +1 attack for the turn. Combine that with Counter Charge and Wolf Standard and your opponent will realise it's best to let sleeping wolves lie. Or to just shoot them from afar.
Anyway, have you run a footslogging Space Wolves list lately? And how did you get on?
