Yeah, especially Ragnar. Seems like one of the last vestiges of the old school, horrible arm poses. Ulrik isn't much better. At least Grimar is sort of dynamic.

Yeah Grimnar is sort of dynamic but I think the proportions of the model are all out. I personally have always thought it was a poor sculpt since it was released.

All of the SW characters need an upgrade. Well, all but Njal and Canis, that is. I think my biggest issue with them is that their dimensions are just shit. That, and Ragnar looks like he's getting himself psyched to take a massive crap.

Meh, to each their own, I suppose. To me it comes off as lazy, one dimensional writing, but I suppose people do like it.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Fair enough, it's far from the best sculpt they've ever put out.

WOLF-themed Vikings! C'mon, that's almost 2 dimensions.

That's true; it's almost 2-D… if but just barely… almost.

Space Wolves have been werewolf vikings forever. Complaining that the idea isn't enough is like complaining about Blood Angels basically being space vampires: there isn't a point.

Besides, Viking Werewolves in an idea so cool that Skyrim did it.

The problem is that they aren't; the more modern novels give them a more unique overtone that I really like which I would like to see more in a new codex. I don't care that the undertone is Northern European space werewolves, just that what came out in the codex was somewhat boring as far as the naming and fluff went.

Codex always trumps novels on canon. Period. The BL authors can run whatever way they want but at the end of the day the flagpole we should be looking at for what an army "is" comes from the codex.

EDIT: And how is "werewolf vikings in SPACE" not unique? FFS Skyrim is the only other bit media I've ever seen that actually has Werewolf Vikings. The only way it could be more awesome is if they rode bears into battle.

Yeah, maybe a Codex: Vlka Fenryka would be a better title this time around rather than Codex: Space Wolves. More reflective of the recent change in our perspective of them. We know GW are not averse to a rebrand.
