The Thunderdome cometh! I finally finished painting up my Thunderwolf Cavalry this weekend. I'm super excited to get these guys on the table. I'll be using the Company of the Great Wolf Detachment which allows you to bring 1 HQ and 2 Elites base.
I'll be using 2x Wolf Guard battle Leaders, 2x Iron Priests, and a 3 man unit of Thunderwolf Cavalry. The plan is to pair them with either White Scars bikes or Ravenwing bikes. By taking the special detachment and pairing the independent characters with a bike Command Squad from either army, the unit will gain some crazy rules. Here are just a few off the top of my head:
Company of the Great Wolf Detachment will give all the cavalry WS5
The Characters will have Preferred Enemy in Challenges
Feel No Pain from the Command Squads Apothecary
+1 to Strength on Hammer of Wraths
Hit and Run
All Grav or Plasma Gun shots from the bikers depending on faction
If Ravenwing add:
Reroll Failed Jinks
Needless to say, the death star should be extremely powerful and resilient. Finishing these guys means I can move on to the next part of my project. That means I need to assemble, paint, and convert 24 Dark Vengeance bikes, 2x drop pods, and few other Space Marine units that have been sitting next to my desk gathering dust. I have SO many models just sitting in boxes or bags right now that need attention and no time to get them done. Those include a Forge World Cerastus-Knight Acheron and the start of my Skitarii army. Thankfully, the rumor mill is saying the release schedule for 40k is gonna slow down until October when Tau will get an update. Guess I have until then to get my back log of models all finished up because I will undoubtedly want to expand my Tau when they come out lol.
