Army List – Battle Dogs Space Marines

The Space Wolves were my first Warhammer 40,000 army, so when the 5th Edition Codex came out I inevitably bought it out of nostalgia.

The army list is a good one so I did play around with some ideas. After I came up with the Brazen Angels, I thought of other ‘DIY’ Chapters I could do. One of the ideas I liked was the ‘Battle Dogs’ who I envisage as a Chapter with swashbuckling, even piratical traditions.

I’ve never done much with Drop Pods before so I had a go at a drop list. Eagle eyed readers will notice that there are not enough Pods for everyone. I envisage the Lord and his power armoured retinue scouting on their own, then summoning the rest of the force when the target is sighted. I included some Land Speeders because I’ve never really used them before and thought they fit the theme.
