For The Wolftime! Space Wolves Flashback Friday

Welcome to Flashback Fridays, where I dig deep for something cool that I have from back in the day.  Which according to the comic Dane Cook was a Wednesday.

You always hear the question: “How did you get into the hobby?”, and for me it was getting bored with assembling fighter jet models.

I could never afford the good jet kits either, lol. Plus those things had a ton of components, we’re spoiled by Games Workshop when it comes to piece count, believe me.

Today’s Flashback Friday is video style, because I didn’t get around to making a video for Thursday for you all. I found an older style box of Space Wolf models, and thought I would share.

A couple of corrections real quick; The box is part of the “Second Generation” style of plastics not the first, with the “Third Generation” starting with the current tactical squad box that was produced in 2005. This Grey Hunters set was produced in 1999, the audio skips a bit, so it’s hard to hear me correct myself.

It was one of the first to contain plastic upgrades instead of  pewter ones. This idea eventually is what lead to the current variant kits, and wholly separate faction specific kits we have today.

Along with the Catachan Jungle Fighters box, these kits featured the first plastic special weapons in the form off a flamer for the Catachans, and a Melta gun for the Grey Hunters.

All that from this little box!

Enjoy the video, and have a great weekend gaming! -MBG
