Chris’ Space Wolves
Our first Last Stand hall of fame begins with a trip to Fenris to showcase Chris’s Space Wolves. These beautifully painted miniatures are always a fantastic sight on the battlefields at Norwich Last Stand. We asked Chris a few brief questions about his army and took a few photos which you can view below. Chris is always happy to discuss his armies and share his tips when it comes to painting your miniatures. If you have any comments or questions, please check out our Forums or Facebook page.
NLS: How long have you collected Space Wolves?
Chris: Probably around 7 to 8 years now.
NLS: What was it about Space Wolves that made you collect them?
Chris: Having played with Tau for a number of years, I wanted something that wasn’t just a ‘shooting army’. So, the Wolves seemed a good option because they had a bit of close combat as well as other all-round abilities as well. Primarily, they are an assault army with a bit of shooting background to it really.
NLS: Do you have a favourite unit in your army?
Chris: Gotta be a Thunderwolf unit really.
NLS: For someone considering collecting Space Wolves what would your first bit of advice to them be?
Chris: Well first of all I would say collect what you like. In fact, that’s the primary thing I would say for any models in any army. It depends on how competitive you want to play. But concentrate on the models you like best first, this will help maintain your interest with them and then look at units that play how you want to play in the game. So if you like assault, pick the assault units; if you like shooting units, pick those. Or have a variety of both so you can have a nice varied game when you’re playing.
NLS: Thank you very much indeed Chris!
No man nor beast could best the Wolf-King,
No tribe could stand against his armies.
Within Russ’ kingdom a truce
Existed between man and wolf,
His court was attended by the fiercest of
Warlords and the most beautiful of maidens.
