The Space Wolves prepare to hunt in the new balance update!


“This is a great saga in the making!”

– Leman Russ

Enraged by Horus’ betrayal and his devious, manipulative tactics, the Wolves of Russ are ready to pursue the traitors and destroy all in their path.

After the end of the release season and the stabilization of all the new content added in the Dropsite Massacre expansion inside the game’s meta, we’re taking a look at some of the strategies that have consistently conquered the meta over the last months. Take a look at the complete list of changes below:

  • Pawn of Ymgr: Increased health from 9 to 10 and change description to: Pack: Deal 3 damage to a random enemy’ (instead of 2 damage).
  • Corpse Swan: Increased the ability cost from 3 to 5 and change ability to: ‘Draw a troop. Put it in play and give it Fast. Can act again’ (instead of drawing a card).
  • Stalk the Stars: Change description to: ‘Your next Astartes gains Flank. Draw a card’. (instead of giving Drop Pod and targeting Astartes or Infantry)

  • Sigismund: Increased ability cost from 1 to 2.
  • Fortified Outpost: Changed description to: Can’t Attack. Resolution: Trigger the Relentless ability of adjacent Structures. (1) Deal 3 damage’ (instead of all Structures).
