Heroes of the imperium, the famed space wolves. Shown here are terminators with the Forgeworld upgrade pack (Torso/head replacements and shoulder pads) as well as custom weaponry. All miniatures have both arms magnetized for ease of weapon swaps)
Chapter background (From Lexicanum, http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Space_Wolves):
The Space Wolves (also Sky Warriors of Russ, Rout or Vlka Fenryka [Wolves of Fenris in Fenrisian]) were the VI Legion of the twenty Space Marine Legions
. Their primarch
is Leman Russ
. After the Horus Heresy
and the resultant reforms, the legion was divided, its first and only time, into two chapters
: the new Space Wolves chapter retained the name of their parent Legion, while the second chapter took on the name of the Wolf Brothers
. The latter however suffered from mutation
and was disbanded. It is currently unknown if there are any other descendant chapters of the Space Wolves at all.
The Space Wolves are notorious throughout the rest of the Imperium
for their ferocity in battle and their defiance of authority, including the dictates of the Codex Astartes
that govern the organization and combat doctrines of other Space Marine chapters.
