More Space Wolves Rumors

Found these over on Warseer thanks to Shadowphrakt:

Ok folks, again I'm stating some more rumours - just becasue I feel its necessary with you guys

If drop pods are taken, the whole army must take them.

Bjorn the Fellhanded has AV14 on all sides, better stats.

There is some mad Wulfen Character, who has his own personal drop pod. Can choose who he fights in combat. like a challenge in WFB. No-one else can fight him apart from the person hes attacking, unless said model is killed, in which case his squad can then attack him.

All rules for SC have been rebuffed - all of them can take terminator armour for +50 points. All SC models are getting re-done, if not for the actual release then in subsequent releases.

Any character can take terminator for 50pts, which includes weapons.

Runic weapons I believe function as relic blades, but with something else quite snazzy.

Wolf Guard (in terminator armour) with lightning claws rack up 6 attacks on the charge each. A very broken thing to do (think this ill be omitted from the final codex) is put them with Ragnar Blackmane, who gives them Fleet of foot and rending, though dont' quote me on rending.

Individual wolf guard can replace squad leaders - all should look individual.

No model in the SW codex at all has the option to take a thunderhammer and storm shield.

Wolf Scouts won't be troops.

Wulfen are back in (old)

Thats all I found out - is due for release this year.




So what do you think? Bjorn seems pretty badass. Remember to take these with huge grains of salt as they are only but whispers on what may come...

I've read through those on both Warseer and Bolter and Chainsword and not only does the original poster doubt them as he says, the source is far from reliable, but the general consensus seems to be that most of those won't come to pass.
These feel like a bunch of things that they must have tried out at some point but decided that they weren't going to work but have since leaked out.

I'd agree that it would generally be better if they didn't come to pass. A lot of the other rumours that you can find out there seem a heck of a lot more realistic and in my opinion more reasonable as well.
