Originally when the new Space Wolves Codex came out I looked at the entry for the Thunderwolf Cavalry, thought how cool/interesting they sounded, yet ignored them as I started putting together my army. From what I have heard (and read about on other sites) most people thought the same way.

I finally got a break from my current project of 'Nurglefying' my fine, upstanding Imperial Guardsmen into foul traitors, and I thought I would drop you all a quick line that starting soon Capture and Control will be featuring expanded content covering Warmachine, Hordes, and Malifaux!

I've finally awakened from a heat-induced fugue state to weigh in on what has, apparently, become a point of contention on the battlefields of the 41st millenium: The battlefields!

Hello Capture and Control Readers!
We have had a lot of positive feedback about our battle report, especially from those of you supporting us locally, and the offers from our friends to help contribute by doing battle reports have continued to come flooding in. We are endeavoring to keep the Marine v. Marine action to a minimum so today we are pleased to present to you some Ork on Chaos Daemon Action!

Just finished my first batch of Space Wolves and I decided to make my first post on Capture and Control a close look at the painting methods I used to get the wolves on the board.
The Elites choices in C:SM are many and varied. Dreadnaughts alone come with 3 variations, there are two variations of Terminator Squads, Techmarines, Legion of the Damned, Vanguard Veterans and Sternguard round out the options. Of all these options the most commonly fielded are Dreads, Assault Terminators, and Sternguard. I agree with the general consensus that these three options are the best in the Elite slot but I don't believe all the others are therefore bad options as some people will argue. Remember, not taking the best doesn't mean you are necessarily taking the worst. Let us take a closer look at the two types of Veteran Squads available to C:SM players.

PythNutD has made the step from Battle Report participant to C&C contributing staff.
PythNutD is a long-time gaming veteran who occasionally makes an appearance at local tournaments to show off his skillfully painted Ultramarines. Lately he has put his boys-in-blue on vacation to build a Space Wolves force. His contribution to C&C will focus on stage-by-stage painting, “master-class” painting techniques, occasional Black-Library novel reviews, and various other hobby/gaming articles.

In my previous post on my tournament experience with my Space Wolves I talked about a painting blitz I went on over the course of 27 days. In that time I managed to paint 20 Wolf Guard Terminators, 10 Wolf Guard in Power Armor, 10 Grey Hunters, 10 Swiftclaws, 1 Rune Priest in Terminator Armor, 1 Rune Priest with Jump Pack, 1 Wolf Priest with Jump Pack (this is my converted Lemartes model) 2 Drop Pods, 12 Long Fangs, and 3 Rhinos. From reading that list you would think I have no life, as it turns out I have quite a busy social life which often gets in the way of my gaming, as Dis can certainly attest to. So how was I able to accomplish so much painting in 27 days?
