Space Wolves rumors


They have been pretty much confirmed as an early october release with the preview coming at GD UK in late September there supposedly will be a box set like the DA veteran one that will have 2 sprues full of wolf bits including a rumored sprue with supposedly 30 different head options. This will be used like the DA one to convert standard marine units to their wolfy counterparts like dev's to long fangs.There will be an HQ that rides a giant wolf that is supposed to be bigger than a juggernaut. He is named Lord Canis Wolfborn and is supposedly on the trade sales order form in the marine section and listed at $41 for a box set.Space wolf lightning claws are called wolf claws and will let you choose to either re-roll hits or re-roll wounds with them. Depending on when this choice has to be made they could be sick, ie if you can choose to re-roll hits after you roll initially.Supposedly characters will be customizable like "the WFB vampiric powers" for VC. What this means is beyond me, but we could see wolfen characters, terminator characters or whatever that maybe dictate the army comp. Another possibility is that they cant get upgrades like the old chaos codex like extra strength or speed or something.Frost blades are now just relic blades

To be fair Tau have had two books during the life of this SW codex. DE are very deserving of a new codex, but they are getting a complete makeover; that takes time. Expect to see the DE early in 2010 according to my sources.

This new Wolf Dex looks to be full of flavor and Win!

I think they are tainted.
That means if the models look good enough
There might be some chaos wolves in the future.

More new rumors for today from people who claim to be in the know is that the puppies are getting a new land raider variant which is supposedly supposed to be an all assault cannon version. 3 twin linked assault cannons is pretty nasty. This has been pretty much confirmed as well

The second and not quite as confirmed is that there will be the rumored new tank of the marines released with wolves. Supposedly bigger than a pred but smaller than a land raider with weapon options different from either of them.
