Default The Black Wolves

Ok, I will begin with fluff:

The Black Wolves are a Blood Angels successor chapter led by two chaplains, Vestravius and Sepriminus. They are a fast moving strike force, utilizing assault squads, bikes, land speeders, and land raiders, in which they mount all the terminator squads. Their insignia is similar to that of the Space Wolves, however they despise the Space Wolves because of what they believe is a violation of their chapter's name. They are supported by dreadnoughts Mortis and Cali.

Basically, I am building an apocalypse force. Currently there is no points limit, I am adding everything I want, then trimming it down to between 3000 and 5000 points. I am in the process of writing an army list. In the meantime, here is an example of the colour scheme:



This model has some minor differences to the Black Wolves, as I painted it with a slightly different scheme, but tht is the basics. The most notable difference is that only sergeants and veterans will have a red helmet like this ones, and there will be no warpaint on any helmets or faces. I will have the list up sometime in the next week!

very nice scheme youve got there. my only suggestion would be to make the powerfist red aswell, it looks like theyre more of a black templar succesor chapter thatn blood angle at the moment. but otherwise i can't wait to see more.

That is meant to be an Inquisitorial "I". The actual scheme is slightly different to that, once I finish my Ultramarines test mini I will do one for this. Any comments on the army list?

They are supposed to be more of a standalone army than a BA successor, I only did that so I could take assault squads as troops, and so that my command squad could have jump packs!

Also, with the fluff, I changed the Dreadnoughts name to Katari, so don't kill me, I just prefer that name and I can no longer edit that post

Well half of my drop pods come in on turn one, so I will bring in the devastators onto the objectives and pour fire onto the enemy lines from afar. Then my assault troops will deep strike into the most vulnerable/dangerous units, followed by my tactical squads in their drop pods onto the objectives to hold them. At the end of the game I will try to get all my assault squads (not the veteran one obviously) out of combat and make a quick dive for all objectives uncovered by my tacticals. I am not sure if you can combat squad after coming out of a drop pod, but if so, I will combat squad my tacticals, leaving heavy weapons on the objective, and my special weapon to hotfoot it to another objective. My scouts will also be combat squadded, with my snipers and heavy bolter staying put, and the missile launcher moving to contest another objective. My terminators, dreadnoughts and veterans are useful for tying the enemy down in combat as are the HQ units and honour guard. And that is it!

EDIT: Thanks for the vote of confidence in my painting, it is nice to have someone say that honestly (all my friends are just being nice)

Well here is a basic paint scheme... Bolter and Chainsword don't have Space Wolves, so I used Slamanders insignia instead. This is what my honour guard will look like after GS (although looking back now I will probably do the jump pack harness black)...



The basic troops will be the same but with a normal backpack and no cape

EDIT: that didn't exactly work.... I wonder why? anyway here is the link Colour Scheme

EDIT again: Sorry bazle I forgot your comments...mine is just the BA army list with a custom paint scheme and space wolf insignia. As I said, they are supposed to be a standalone chapter (First Founding, no successors) and I only used the BA army list so I could have assault squads as troops and an honour guard with JP's

Hooray! another EDIT!: Looking back through the fluff I realise it has changed a lot with the writing of the list. Now the only vehicles are drop pods and dreadnoughts
