What started as almost a passion project for staff at Games Workshop and their partners at Forge World has really exploded into one of their most popular games. The Horus Heresy allows gamers to focus on one of the most fascinating parts of the Warhammer 40,000 lore and battle brother against brother in the ultimate battle between the Primarchs. Blogger Pete de Florio has posted a great run down on some of the ways you can best utilise the Space Wolves faction in the game on his blog.
“…As a tread head, my original interest in the Space Wolves started with the Leman Russ Battle Tank and continued with the release of specialty codices, minis and unique units like the wolfen and the massive Thunderwolf cav.
Russ is also an especially interesting Primarch. He is a true lead from the front warlord and his legions buck tradition and are extensions of Russ’s personality. To other Primarchs though, he is the executioner of the Emperor. He is rightfully feared, as it was the Space Wolves sent to destroy 2 of the initial 20 primarchs and Legions when they strayed from the Emperor’s light.
With release of Horus Heresy Book 7 – Inferno, we finally have rules to play out the Burning of Prospero, the Epic clash of the Space Wolves sent to exterminate the Thousand Sons…”
