Santa pulled by wolves ! It's the season for the bleeding and Santa Grimnar is delivering presents of pain for all the bad little boys and girls.
Last time I played was around 2004ish, and I am thinking about getting back into the hobby and playing Space Wolves again. But by going all in on conversion for Santa Grimnar and his helpers. Partly because I have no idea what I was thinking with my current models loadouts and partly because I have no idea if I can even use my old models. Its nice that Space Wolves can have successor chapters now, but losing the Sleigh makes it a deal-breaker.
I'm thinking 500 points Outrider detachment to start:
180pts Santa Grimnar with 2 reindeer(Dasher & Dancer)
155pts Thunderwolf(reindeer) Cavalry 1 w/ Stormshields & Chainsword & 1 Powersword/axe? (Prancer, Vixen, Comet)
150pts Thunderwolf(reindeer) Cavalry 2 w/ Stormshields & Boltgun? (Cupid, Dunder, Blixem)
15 pts and a Cyberwolf Rudolf
I was also spitballing a 500 point Vanguard detachment with 2 Primaris Techmarines and 8 units of Servitors with 2 heavy bolters (or whatever) per squad. And theme the Servitors as Santa's little helpers. But that's a lot of Servitors...
