Let's see, we'll need some Thunderwolf Lords, plenty of Thunderwolves, plenty of Fenrisian Wolves and it would probably be sensible to have some firepower to back it all up.
Here's a 1500pts army with nothing but Thunderwolf Cavalary and a two packs of Fenrisian Wolves for Troops.
1500pts Thunderwolf Army
Wolf Lord: 275pts
Thunderwolf, Runic armour, Wolf Claw, Storm Shield, Saga of the Warrior Born, Wolf tail talisman, 2 Fenrisian wolves.
Wolf Lord: 285pts
Thunderwolf, Runic armour, Thunder Hammer, Storm Shield, Saga of the Bear, Wolf tail talisman, 2 Fenrisian wolves.
Wolf Lord: 230pts
Thunderwolf, Runic Armour, Frost blade, Saga of Majesty, Storm Shield, 2 Fenrisian wolves.
Canis Wolfborn: 205pts
Wolf Tooth Necklace, Wolf Tail Talisman, Two Wolf Claws, Thunderwolf, Saga of the Wolfkin, Wrath of the Savage, Lord of the Wolfkin, The Wolf King, 2 Fenrisian Wolves
15 Fenrisian Wolves: 120pts
15 Fenrisian Wolves: 120pts
Thunderwolf Cavalry: 235 points
4 Thunderwolf Cavalry, Thunder Hammer
The 4 Thunder Lords and their Fenrisian Wolves join with a pack of 15 Fenrisian Wolves and form the Death Star of the army. The second pack of Fenrisian Wolves goes out in front to give them a cover save. Meanwhile the pack of Thunderwolf Cavalry follow closely behind.
It's not subtle, but it's very pretty to look at!
You can always mix the Thunder Lords about between the Fenrisian Wolf packs and the Thunderwolf Cavalary if you like.
Obviously, the army cannot claim and objectives. But do we really care about that when there's killing to be done?
If you like themed armies and love cavalary charges, then no doubt you've already been thinking of a Thunderwolf army. And as we've discovered before, Thunder Lords are where it's at when it comes to the Space Wolves cavalry.
So by minimising troops and maximising our HQ choices, we should be able to wreak absolute carnage once we get into close combat. Obviously, this isn't going to win any Grand Tournaments, but it's themed and good fun. I think it comes to £180 to buy as well, which isn't too bad either.
Good luck out there and happy hunting!
