Blog Wars 8 Prizes and My Army List
Before we get to my army list let's get the important matter of the prizes out of the way. Despite lower numbers than last time I'm still offering nearly the same amount of prizes as I did before! There's the usual vouchers from (and kindly sponsored by) Element Games which make up the prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and Last Place along with the Best Army and Best Special Character painting prizes. There'll also be two spot prizes for each round and a series of raffle prizes at the end of the event. Here's a shot of the stuff you can win (please note I'll be adding one set of spot prizes to this as I haven't been able to get hold of the stuff I wanted yet).
As you can see the top raffle prize is again an Imperial Knight worth £85 (RRP)! That's not bad for a £17.50 ticket I reckon! In fact all of the prizes in the raffle are worth more than your ticket cost and raffle entry is included!
My Army List
I'm sticking to the blog's roots and running Space Wolves making the most of the new codex. The list is deliberately designed to be reasonably powerful but not devastating with some armies having no trouble dealing with it. At the same time I've tried to make it a good army for a TO to use whilst running the event.
1,850pts of Space Wolves (CAD)
Wolf Lord - thunderwolf, runic armour, storm shield, wolf claw
Wolf Guard Terminators - 2x wolf claw/CM, 2x wolf claw/CP - Land Raider
5 Blood Claws - Stormwolf w/ twin meltas
10 Grey Hunters - chainswords, 2 meltaguns, terminator with PF/CM
3 Thunderwolf Cavalry - 2x TH/SS
Land Raider Redeemer - multi-melta
I'm really looking forward to the event (as ever) and I'm hoping it will run pretty smoothly with some of the streamlining I've done since BW7. See you all on Saturday!
