So far I have the following painted:
30 Grey Hunters: 2xPowerFist, 1xPowerWeapon, 3xFlamer, 3xMelta
8 Blood Claws: 1xPower Weapon, 1xFlamer
6 Wolf Guard Terminators
1 Wolf Lord Terminator Armor
1 Rune Priest
1 Wolf Priest
1 Drop Pod
Ok, so I went overboard on the Terminators, but they were great fun! I just loved the minis, and had some extra Terminator bodies that allowed me to add a couple of more.
I went nuts on Infantry too, but I LOVE infantry. They're so fluffy. When my buddies and I first tried 40k it was fourth edition, we only played one game and never really learned the rules. I do however seem to remember that you didn't have as much infantry. In fifth you need troops to hold objectives, and the more the merrier.
Blood Claws I just added because I finished the Space Wolf Omnibus, and started the second... Blood Claws are fluffy cool... Mathhammer fail from what I understand, but I don't care.. just the idea of these new pack members, still unable to control the Canis Helix, and frothing at the mouth for action.. Just fluffy awesomesauce!
Wolf Priest was an afterthought, I didn't have one and I like the idea of Chappy dudes. Probably left over from Black Templars (Army I build never really played). I enjoyed their fluff, and the idea of priests in Space Wolves is different in a cool way!
Still haven't decided which Wolf Lord this is.. I've bounced around a few, some are fluffy awesome but competitive fail. Two of which seem cool, can't remember their names off the top of my head. They are the last two in the codex prior to the 13th.
Sven 'something', as the idea of doing some runic tattoo's on their faces would be cool, like the dude in 13th Warrior.
His competitive counterpart who loves flamers, and whose Grey Hunters earn a rite of passage.. Once they kill an enemy by flame, they earn the honor of painting thier faces Blood Red before battle... Come on, you gotta love that!
