Deep Thought - There are no Wolves on Fenris

It's no Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors

One of the best things about 40K is, that if you can think it, then you can do it. And that's really the idea behind Deep Thought. These are going to be those "wouldn't it be cool if" army ideas that are probably more useful in the bar over a pint than on the table. Now, this series was inspired by the Blood Angel codex letting you take lots of Dreadnoughts and Alex & Darren's "No Guns" Tau idea. We'll be seeing those in future weeks but because we're primarily a Space Wolf blog, we're going to start with something "Wolfy"

Canis Wolfborn allows you to take Fenrisian Wolves as Troops, however, they can never claim Objectives. Wouldn't it be cool if we ignored that drawback and had an army purely made up of Wolves and guys riding Wolves? Yes, it would...

Canis Wolfborn

Elites
Iron Priest, Thunderwolf Mount, 4 Cyberwolves

Troops

So, you have the Fenrisian Wolves out in front giving cover to the 3 units behind. Once you get into charge range, you can either split Canis and the Wolf Lord off or keep them with their TWC unit as needed. You'll be able to get a 2nd turn charge at worst and once those TWolves hit, they're going to do a lot of damage. . Don't get me wrong, you'll struggle in Objective missions and there are some lists you haven't got a chance of dealing with (3 Land Raiders?!) but I still think it would be a fun list to run.

Oh man, we love our army lists here at C&F! So, what do you think? Got any ker-azy ideas you'd like to see given the Deep Thought treatment?
