a useful GW link for starters

space wolves grey
shadow grey*
shining gold
scorched brown
flesh (dwarf or tallern)
bestial brown*
codex grey*
bleached bone
boltgun metal
chaos black

these are all the colours needed for a master painter but the * ones are optional if you're a novice painter (i'm crap and self confessed )
Are those colours universal enough to the Space Wolves that I can safely buy them and not sit there going "Ah shit, I'm missing (insert colour here)" with the standard 2000 point build? (remember, if I miss picking up units, I can always buy more, that's one of the good things about the hobby, eh?)

As for literature, am I missing anything when I pick up the rulebook & the space wolves codex, or do I need something else as well?
