Space Wolf Codex Information and Leaked Images!

There is a ton of codex information rumored to be from someone that had a few moments with the codex. Of course not everything could be figured out, but we also have a pic leak of an image for next week's Dreadnaught BjornMurderfang Pre-orders.


Here is the leaked image link, the link was sent to me, so I dont know at this time where it originated from. It looks like these links are from Warseer, but hard to verify at this moment.

and here
http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/07/27/umase6ep.jpg

Here is the rest of the information. Please remember that this is still a rumor.

I went through and removed the point costs. You can follow the link to warseer, who is apparently allowed to show them.

  1. I like what I'm hearing so far if it's true. I'm going to have to buy this codex on day one

  2. This sounds like bullshit as usual. Only spent "a few minutes" with the codex and still managed to get all that info?

    1. Don't be so quick to judge man, it comes in alignment with the other new rumours.

      Who knows! We'll find out soon enough. What I want to know is whether jaws is back or not so I can refuse to play any space wolf players with my nids :]

    2. Plus Logan sounds awesome! Can't wait to see that sculpt if it's legit!

      Delete
    3. Sorry I'm just mad about the GH rumor. +2 for a ccw!?

      Delete
    4. Better than no ccw. Don't have to pull my models apart now.

      Delete
    5. Hey! At least they aren't 3pts each.

      Besides we don't know the basic pts cost for the marine so... Chill winston!

      Delete
    6. GH are 7 slaves ... bascially a marine

      Delete
    7. I'm hoping that they are 14pts base so with ccw they are 16pts each. I do like that pretty much everything can take a Stormwolf as a dedicated transport.

      Delete
    8. Even at 17 points I won't freak out. I will just run less of them. If that Stormwolf as a dedicated transport for all those units is true that is pretty huge, won't have to waste a Fast slot on them if you want to run a lot of TWs with a couple of those things.

      Delete
    9. I just checked on WS..man I hope he got the points for various stuff right!! I will be a happy Wolf player!!! -3 points on the Bloodclaws, only +1 on the GH and -10 for TWs?..Holy Fenrisian Wolf DooDoo...pretty sweet in my mind.

      Delete
    10. Chaos Marines pay 2 points for the second CCW, so why wouldn't others pay the same amount?

      Delete
    11. I'll just be happy to not have to pull my hunters apart! I'll be happy with 16 pts apiece!

      Delete
    12. They wont make Logan on a skybs thing and no alternate build.

      This rumor is just feeding from existing info. And only adds some very obvious things like how xyz are still the same.

      Its got no new info except the wild part about Logan.
      Its likely not true and the rest of the rumor is like "who cares"!

      Delete
    13. They are paying 2 pts for the CCW but they dropped the base cost one point according to this, so a net gain of only 1 pt. Not sure on the spec weapons but he said they went up.

      Delete
    14. If you watch the video there is a pic of 2 harnessed wolves at the very start

      Delete
    15. Seb12 is usually wrong, he just like attention..lol. You might try positive attention instead of the way you always present things. You have become a caricature of the perfect troll dude.

    16. Are new codex looks like its going to be fun brothers.

  3. Gotta say im excited if this is true even a little bit! Really hope logan gets a chariot that would be so awesome!

    1. Jeez, Murderfang actually sounds brutal the more I look at him! I think I sense some allies for my Dark Angels!

    3. I'll give them both Primarch stats to make it more fun =P

      Delete
    4. Sounds like that hellbrute formation!

  5. Disappointed if that is the bjorn version of the new dreadnought, which it almost certainly is. Was hoping they would did a way to make the imperial dreadnoughts a bit more dynamic with him. Fingers crossed for the other two variants.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's Murderfang, not Bjorn. It actually says Murderfang in the picture.

      Delete
    2. Sure does look very bjorny and very not twin murder lightening clawry. Even down to bjorns pack marking on his leg and the wolf of russ on the sarcophagus and the fact its almost identical to the old bjorn model. Hope your right though, I want dynamic bjorn!

      Delete
    3. no that is bjorn ... muderfang has a pair of clawz :D

      Delete
    4. Doh!

      Egg, meet my face. Good catch.

      Delete
  6. this all seems pretty great, especially stormwolf as dedicated transport! although the way theyve listed the termie options worries me, as ive got a couple guys with storm shields and not thunder hammers, 95% sure they wont stick us with storm shields ONLY with thunder hammers though

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Considering I have 8 claw-fist Terminators...

      Delete
    2. "any model in the unit can take these, this isn't all of the options though"

      They probably still have the same options as they did previously.

      Delete
    3. yeah, thats what id assume... it just seems weird to list some options as weapon sets

      Delete
    4. If you got to GW's webstore and select the filters for Space Wolves and then dedicated transports the only one listed is the Stormwolf so that confirms it

      Delete
    5. The Space Wolves section only shows the models unique to Space Wolves. They haven't included the Space Marine vehicles since the site relaunched.

      Delete
    6. I know that what I was saying is that looking at those filters CONFIRMS that Stormwolf ships can be taken as dedicated transports. which I've seen in other forums people are specualting that as unlikely bc of the necron night scythe crap.

      Delete
  7. Already got my Murderfang built and painted.

  8. I definately want five SW termies each equipped with Heavy Flamer, Assault Cannon and Cyclone Missile Launcher.

    May some Frost Bolts and Frozen Promethium upgrades too :)

    Fishy Fenrisian wishlist maybe?

    1. I am pretty sure he got that wrong..I doubt that any and can take the heavy weapons, probably one per 5 as it is now.

      Delete
  9. Logan in a wolf chariot… Sounds like something that GW would do and I am crying inside. He just needs a sack of toys and he can be Santa Space Wolf.

    Pity the picture quality of the dread is so low. Looks interesting though and I think adding a pair of Sentinel legs should make it really look slick. I really cannot take the stumpy dreadnaught legs seriously. CCWs for Grey Hunters, VERY HAPPY but StormWolf as a dedicated transport for so many sounds fishy.

    On the whole, sounds decent. Only thing I am really dreading is that, when it all comes together it might be an overpowered cheese-fest.

    1. I actually think they're more aiming for Thor. In the Norse legends, he rides around on a chariot drawn by two goats. So just be pleased you've got wolves and not goats!

      Delete
    2. I'd be down with rocking the Fenrisian Thundergoats.

      Delete
    3. Goat Simulator 2.0: Revenge of the Fenrisian Thundergoats.

      I'd totally play that game.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, being interesting sucks :(

      Delete
    5. Going with the Norse motif, I would see Ragnar as more along the lines of Thor. Instead, I see Logan Grimnar more as Odin. Replace the axe with a spear and give him an eyepatch and call him "Wotan Grimnar."

      Delete
    6. You mean Santa "claws"????

      Delete
    7. That'd be kinda badass but I always thought the Emperor was the Odin/Allfather figure? Either way, Logan with a big spear would be awesome, love that idea.

      Delete
    8. @kevin
      For Santa "Claws" you would need to have the dual Wolf Claws IMO… Think it would be a less 'slam head on table' name for Canis.

      @Thomas
      I think from the fluff that the Emperor is the Allfather, but he is likely too busy propping up the Golden Throne to ride the chariot and considering that my Wolves bounce between Loyalist & Khorne Dogs, 'ole Empy would not get caught dead near my guys.
      Speaking of which, vaguely remembering a company (Kabuki?) putting out a mini of Russ that had a spear… Have Russ stand in as a LoW for Grimnar on chariot, demote Grimnar to a regular Termie Wolf Lord and you can properly ring in the Wolf Time!

      Delete
  10. If these rumors are even close to the truth I will be ok with switching the Codex over. I was worried about remodeling GHs but can live with 17 points with CCW as base if you keep all 3 weapons..seems fair.
    The Stormwolf as a dedicated flyer is really nice, that is huge is my opinion.
    Hopefully Iron Priests are in the HQ and not the Elite slot.
    Predators just got cheaper.
    Vindis went up a little.
    Dreadnoughts still suck in 7th but want to see the rules on Bjorn and the Murder dude.
    Overall it looks like wolves will still keep their flavor based on this, which was the main thing I was afraid they would lose.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I got the points wrong on the GHs..subtract one..even better. After reading the actual post on Warseer I am even happier. Without seeing all the special rules and details it still looks pretty good, the things I was seriously worried about didn't get totally screwed up.

      Delete
    2. 16 point tri-weapom GH's and 13 point BCs are a good spread.

      Delete
    3. I can accept what they did with GH, in 5th edition it was 150 points for a whole bare boned GH pack, but now you are just putting in an additional 10 points. So with the CCW its 16 points per model that is not too big of a lose. I love the new dreadnought character murderfang, and also we are getting psychic powers again.

      Delete
  11. I would not count on rumors when deciding whether something is screwed up or not. They are just rumors until we see a decent leaked image of the codex or when the codex comes out.

    Atleast I would not go ahead and buy models for any competitive lists on my mind before seeing the whole codex but I will still buy that MurderFrostFangWulfBjornyDreadnaughtie and that small Caestus Assault Ram with Frosty Christmas Cannon for conversions.

    SW flyer will make a nice little addition to my counts as Adeptus Mechanicum army as a Land Speeder Storm.

  12. Let us show you Kharn how Fenris makes war.

  13. Grey Hunters: Any model may add a Close Combat Weapon for +2 points

    AHAHAHA TOTALLY CALLED IT!

    But it's totally awesome and the rules are pretty solid thus far.

    Already loving the fliers and how they look... but the only question is... WHICH ONE DO I TAKE?

    1. 2 Transports and a gunship, only way to fly, wouldn't be surprised if a dataslate gets released for a stormwolf formation

  14. About the Space Wolf guy on grav chariot (sorry not a SW player forgot the name) would GW be copying Santa Lilith from PP?

    Question is, if true, (I mean GW making the mini) Which one will cost more?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love the fact we are finally getting the update we deserve. I can't wait till we get the codex in hand so the Sons of Fenris can stand proud. If you need to represent with some great Wolves banners, head over to eBay Bethor's Banners. Just what the Jarl ordered.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What do you mean "the update we deserve?" Why do you deserve an update? Your codex was fine and very playable, all this new codex is is a money grab by making people buy so many of the new fliers as they are dedicated transports for everything. Why would the Frost Cannon's other shot be AP1, which is far better than the standard Lascannon, so why doesn't everyone else use them too? All it is is an attempt to get weak minded WAAC players to start the army, just like this one dick in my gaming group who has played all of the noobiest armies just to win (yet never does)

      Delete
    2. What, you mean GW wants to sell models and make money? HOW EVIL OF THEM!

      Why do people hate GW so much for trying to make money, it's frickin' insanity?

      Delete
    3. How many 220 point Flyers do you think you can spam and win with? Ridiculous statement that I keep seeing repeated by people who can't do the math. The Codex wasn't fine, points were out of whack and the switch to 7th with a FAQ missing half of what had been FAQ'ed before made it almost unplayable. I have played Wolves a long time and am happy as hell this is coming out, like anyone would be.

      Delete
    4. Who cares , you gotta switch to hover to disembark. Say hello to tractor cannons

      Delete
    5. Ummm are you friggen serious? Wolves have a 6year old dex with no air support or defense and nothing in line with all the changes in 6/7th, stop being so salty our pups finally got the love they certainly "DESERVE"

  16. Liking the runes and super-detailing on the new Dreadnaught. Hopefully there's some room in the kit for more dynamic poses. And the codex rumours if true are pretty tasty. May have to sink my fangs into a Space Wolves army ;) like what I did there?

    1. Every kit has plenty of room for dynamic poses. You just need to show some knive and green stuff for them.

    2. Please if you do a SW army do it some justice. Last time the Wolves were 'hot' the lousy painting that was prevalent made my eyes bleed. No basic grey with some red added here and there..they are a pain to paint well but look great when done correctly.

      Delete
    3. Ok it's really kind of dickish to say "paint it well or don't paint it at all." I'm a huge SW fan and appreciate justice done to the army. But truthfully people can only do as much justice as their painting skill and and pride in their work allows them. there was a time in my life where simple grey with yellow shoulder pads was all I could muster (I have come much farther now) but I'm just saying everyone has to start somewhere and as long as they are happy with what they produce, even it doesn't meet your standards Quinn is completely irrelevant. To each their own they say.

      Delete
    4. I love being quoted on something I did not even say, you understand what quotes are right? My problem the last time was people who could paint and didn't, if you can't paint then you can't paint. SWs have a lot of detail on them, being lazy and not painting it is a choice..a bad choice in my opinion.

      Delete
    5. The quotations were more of an what your comment inferred rather than a direct quote. I was reading between the lines because my quotes (as you say) are what I took from what you siad.

      Delete
    6. Well you inferred wrong.

      Delete
    7. Ok... yes this a game, but first and foremost these are MODELS, you should have some basic modeling skill with glue and a hobby knife plus with a range of over a hundred paints and inks and a very easy step by step process of basecoat, drybrush, ink/shade, layer and then highlight, if you can't stay in the lines in a grade school coloring book or have horribly shakey hands then there's no reason somebody 14yo or older shouldn't be able to paint their minis to a high tabletop standard. have some pride in your armies, indeed few to none of us are 'eavy metal studio painters but GW has made it pretty much retard proof
      When it comes to at least getting 3-4 colorz per model

      Delete
    8. I agree with threadlessfan on this one. Not everyone has skills to paint it well.
      Hell my wolves look horrible compared to my Space Marines... because SW was my first army. But Most of my wolves are painted though, cant say that about my Marines.
      Better paint jobs = longer time spent on painting.

      Delete
  17. I agree they should be painted with at least some effort I am proud of mine.

    1. I don't disagree completely but simply by putting brush to model you are making the first steps. I just don't want one A**hole's opinion to deter someone who doesn't possess a higher level of painting skill because they just started wargaming/miniatures painting. Like I said everyone has to start somewhere and I can see how if some new comer to the hobby went looking on the internet for opinions or questions and they encounter snobs it might deter them from continuing the hobby. It's not a very sportsman like attitude to be like "your level of painting skill isn't good enough. You have no business playing the game." At least it would be painted I've seen entire armies fielded entirely of unpainted models. I mean really? I wonder how your first models looked Quinn surely they weren't "PRO" quality.

      Delete
    2. You calling me an A**hole?..Doubt that would happen in person..lol. I think you completely misunderstood me, and definitely misquoted me. I have no problem with people painting to their ability, I have a problem with people just painting them with Grey primer and a couple bits of color because they are lazy, as I stated above. I saw this a lot last time Wolves popped and it's why I said what I did.
      My first models weren't great, but I painted the whole of them and kept painting til I got decent at it. If you're lazy you will never get good at it. I don't play against unpainted armies ever, and I certainly won't put one on the table.
