Wolf-Wing? Deathwing Is Where It’s At!
Ok, so I’m slightly cheesed that another codex can now have a full terminator army, as much as I like terminators I’m slightly reluctant to do the Space Wolf “Wolf Wing” as it’s now called. They have a lot more benefits over the Deathwing and that’s because they’re a different army.
I’ve read that a lot of people will be using the SW rules for their DW from now on, but why? Just because they’re newer doesn’t mean they’ll auto-win every game.
I’m not going to list the ups and downs of the armies as I haven’t had a proper read of the new SW ‘dex yet, but yeah it does seem quite tempting… but it’s also one of those armies that will generally do well because of it’s rules.
Deathwing don’t have this, we’re still on the old Space Marine rules and we’re doing just fine. In fact I’m quite content with the Dark Angel Codex.
I’m sticking with the Deathwing. When I registered for the Gauntlet the staff member serving me and the guy on the phone were saying I should just use the SW rules..
No, they’re Deathwing. Not Space Wolves. Yeah the Wolves have nice rules.. but they’re Deathwing!
“Counts as” is one thing, but using my Deathwing army as another army just seems wrong… Does anyone get what I’m on about?
Every codex that is spat out gets called the “cheesiest” or “broken”. It’s all forgotten about a month later. I’ve played Imperial Guard and beat them, I’ve played the old Wolf codex, that was quite mean, and I’ve beaten that, nothings unbeatable. I play Deathwing because I like them.. people under-estimate them and what they can do, they get overlooked because they’re not new and shiny. Combine that with a good player (such as myself) and you have a winning combo!
So, no Wolf Wing for me!
