"Incoming! Space Wolves

The Space Wolves were one of the first Space Marine Chapters founded by the Emperor; fierce and barbaric heroes of legend who charge fangs bared into the teeth of the enemy. In October, this Chapter of ferocious warriors is being re-launched with a brand-new Codex and range of Citadel Miniatures.

As a newsletter subscriber, we thought you should be among the first to catch a glimpse of the all-new Space Wolves."

News of the new Codex tomorrow?

...why did you ask when we'll see it? Did you even read the newsletter you quoted?

In October

Durrrr!


Anyway, that is a nice looking Marine. Really does look like a divergent chapter, the backpack, shoulders, even the bolter look very different.

I doubt it. GW's been pretty tight with their leaks. Last thing I remember getting out before release was either the Ork codex or the CSM codex. Only thing I've seen since then were a handful of photographs of the Spanish IG codex on someone's lap.

Apparently a Tyranid codex got leaked a while ago - I read it and it seems like it's pretty much bull-honkey.

That Tyranid one was a fan-made Codex. The guy who wrote it even confirmed it. Well put together though. It looked like a early GW draft.

And yeah, the leaks aren't so good at the moment. Took me ages to get a copy of the Guard Codex, and I haven't found Planetstrike anywhere yet. Granted, my copy of that book will be here any day now, but I like having electronic versions. If only GW would wise up and realise the internet is not a fad and start selling PDF's online. Better companies are already doing that.

Other than the face that's just awesome. The stylised armour is beautiful.

I like the runes on the bolter - not so keen on the wolf's head front sight though. Looks like it belongs more as a hood ornament.

Why do GW insist on giving so many models those silly top-knots - Give your models a hair cut!! At the very least shaggy mane like hair. It would almost be better to give the model two pigtails on the side of his head!

Drink is the curse of the land. It makes you fight with your neighbor. It makes you shoot at your landlord, and it makes you miss him.

That makes it too difficult to have a posable plastic component. If it was a mane it may as well be modelled into the torso in the first place. Or, you could easily do it yourself.

My problem with the face is that it has SM-Scout-Syndrome, AKA the dreaded Blockjaw...

I think the face on this Space Wolf is a lot better than the current plastic SM Scouts. It's not my favorite though. I really like the SW heads on the current SW sprue. I agree the topknot on this guy is a little bit over the top.

Don't knock the chops, though.

I am interested in seeing more, actually. The Space Wolves are one of the few official Marine chapters I actually like, and probably one of the few Marine Chapters that actually deserves a whole book to itself (although not before every army has received a basic codex!).

YO DAKKA DAKKA!

Well, now I know there are going to be new plastics I'm going to pick up a couple boxes of Blood Claws anyway so I don't miss anything. Only got a few of the old SW heads still kicking around. Most of them made it into other projects. I assume the torsos are pretty much the same though, and I've got plenty of those left over.

I'll knock the chops if I feel like it, but only once I've removed mine.

You can take my chops, when you shave them from my cold, dead, body!


There were a few different torsos on the current Space Wolf sprue (that's the one you're referring to, right?) They weren't that different though. There was one with a few runes hanging off of it, one with a wolf tail belt buckle type thing, and one with a wolf breastplate instead of the Imperial eagle. Hopefully the new ones will have some cool variations as well. It would be nifty to see some Heresy-era armor pieces mixed in.

According to the other thread, there's supposed to be like 30 different Space Wolf heads? That sounds a little excessive, but it would be sweet if true. Even if it's only 10, that's more than the last sprue. Hopefully there will be some cool helmeted heads too, with runes and topknots and stuff.

YO DAKKA DAKKA!

Yeah, I mean the five on the current SW accessory sprue. This model's breastplate looks just like one of those, although the tail talismans below the bolter might be attached to the torso... that would be different, as only one of the breastplate variants had that originally.

We're probably just going to get another boring re-cut sprue with a couple of new pieces.

Some more interesting helmeted heads I'd certainly like to see, though.

Well, there really wasn't anything wrong with the current sprue. If it's a recut sprue with a lot of new pieces (like 10 heads or something like that), I would certainly be cool with that.

But I'd be cool with a totally awesome new sprue with a bunch of heads, torsos, weapons, etc. as well.

I noticed the shoulderpad on this dude is new too though. Whether the sprue is just a re-cut or not, there's enough new pieces just on this guy to make me think it will still be pretty sweet.
