The Wolves of Fenris howl in the newest balance update


The first faction of the Inferno expansion made its entrance two weeks ago! The Space Wolves led the hunt against the traitors and their first showing was… underwhelming. The pack’s ability to claim victory did not quite match their ferocity, but this is merely the start of their saga.

In this month’s balance update, the focus is primarily on minor adjustments to the new Space Wolves, with a larger one on their Primarch, Leman Russ. This update also brings changes to Warlords and factions that, thanks to last month’s update, have started to display frustrating play patterns. Check out all the changes below!

Space Wolves

  • Leman Russ: Change Hunt ability to: ‘Hunt: Give +1/0 to a random friendly troop’
  • Bulveye Greybeard: Increase Initiative from Low to Medium
  • Apothecary Torfin: Increase attack from 2 to 3

  • Deathsworn Veteran: Increase stats from 4/4 to 5/5
  • Geri: Increase attack from 5 to 6
  • Thegn King’s-bane: Change description to: ‘Pack: Give 0/+1 to your units’ (so it now affects himself as well)

  • Sergeant Khorak: Change description to: ‘Resolution: Heals 2. Rally: Give Poison 3 to an enemy troop’ (instead of heals 3)
