Space Wolves have finally been previewed this morning! Without further delay, sit back and check out what the Vlka Fenryka are getting now!

Warhammer Community gave us the first preview of Space Wolves with rules and datasheets. The Space Wolves codex is right around the corner so it’s about time we see something like this! Let’s break everything down.

Hunters Unleashed

SW preview 1

Space Wolves are +1 to hit on the charge or after being charged. On top of that, their characters can heroic intervene for 6″ instead of 3″. This is similar to the Blood Angels tactic that is +1 to wound on the charge. Both assault armies got the best of both combat aspects.

As a side note, heroic interventions are no joke. If a character heroicly intervenes and was not selected as a charge target, the enemy can’t hit them. But the character has full right to go HAM on them.

Boosted Stats

Logan Grimnar on Stormrider now has a 2+ save – as befits a Terminator-armoured, chariot-riding High King of Fenris.


…you can now add a close-combat Champion to your Great Company, while Murderfang has been given a few extra attacks with which to rip and tear your foes asunder.

Wolf Guard will be able to take Cataphractii armor or Tartaros armor. Primaris Space Wolves are also getting a full boost with Primaris Wolf Lords and Primaris Battle Leaders.

Wulfen Dreadnought

If you have a Contemptor Dreadnought for Space Wolves, you’ll be able to find updated rules for them as well. Now let’s talk about Wulfen Dreadnoughts.

…you’ll be able to provide a brutal answer to the question of whether or not these ancient warriors can succumb to the Curse of the Wulfen. The answer is a) yes and b) it’s awesome.

Wulfen Dreads are coming and they teased us with only the top of the datasheet. Looks like we’ll have to wait until the codex drops to see the full thing. What can Wulfen Dread rules possibly be?

New Old Units

Land Speeder

Space Wolves haven’t had complete access to what most of the Imperium has to offer. UNTIL NOW. You can take Land Speeders, hunters, Stalkers, and Stormhawks in your Space Wolves list.

Imagine this but a different shade of blue and screaming about wolves instead of the Codex Astartes.

Relics, Stratagems, Psychic powers, and Warlord Traits haven’t even been mentioned yet so be sure to check back with us for the latest previews when they drop. Until then, what do you think of the previews so far? Can you think of what rules the Wulfen Dread will have?

What do you think about Hunters Unleashed? Let us know in the comments of our Facebook Hobby Group.
