Warhammer 40K: Space Wolf Primaris Candidates

4 Minute Read
Feb 13 2020

With Saga of the Beast confirming Space Wolves are facing off against Orks we’ve got a list of units that could make the leap to Primaris.

We know Ghaz is on the way and while we’re excited about a new Ork Model for him, we were also flipping through the Space Wolf miniature range and there are quite a few units that could use an update. Now, not every character will get a Primaris Update but it doesn’t hurt to list them out! So here are some of the potential candidates for the Primaris Protocol for the Space Wolves.

Ragnar Blackmane

He might be the youngest ever battle-brother to be a Wolf Lord, but his model is one of the oldest in the range! With a pose straight out of the 90s, this is one miniature we think could use an update. Maybe the events in Psychic Awakening cause him to undergo the Primaris Protocol. Or maybe he goes through it in an act of defiance/showing off. It’s Blackmane! He does what he wants and no one can tell him otherwise. Also his miniature is currently unavailable online from GW’s webstore…coincidence? Probably! *wink*

Njal Stormcaller

Sure, he’s got a newer model in Terminator Armor but we’ve got two reasons for him to become Primaris’d – 1) The event is called Psychic Awakening. He’s the key Psyker for the Space Wolves so what better time is there to upgrade him! 2) A Primaris version would allow folks to see the evolution of GW models from the 90’s to the 00s to now. That’s kinda cool if you ask me.

But seriously, Mephiston and Tigurius got Primaris upgrades. Although Ezekiel didn’t…so who knows!

Bjorn the Fell-Handed

Look, when Lazarus of the Dark Angels couldn’t be saved by becoming a Dreadnought and had to undergo the Primaris Protocol to save his life, we had some questions. Apparently the failure rate is getting pretty stinking low. Rhe procedure is SO effective, it can take a Marine that would have failed becoming a dreadnought (aka a walking coffin with guns) and make them MORE than just healthy – it makes them better than before. So does that mean that Marines can start pulling the remains of heroes interred in a dreadnought and Primaris them back to health? Sounds bonkers, right? But if that’s the case what about Bjorn?! If nothing else, can they at least slap him in a Redemptor Dreadnought? Maybe with a Lightning Claw option (or two) and give him some more punch…It would be nice.


Fenrisian Wolves

Yeah – we’re going here! If there are no wolves on Fenris, then what the heck are these things? Have they TRIED to upgrade their attack wolves? Let’s strap them to the chair and make them Primaris’d Wolves, baby! What’s that? They already did that and that’s how they got Thunderwolves? I don’t believe you.

Hmm… okay, you might be onto something…

Arjac Rockfist

He’s the personal champion of Logan Grimnar. GW is dead-set on keeping the sled-riding version of Grimnar around so why not make his champ the Primaris Champ?! Make him a Gravis Armor version with a sweet shield and hammer and boom – ready to rock(fist) it up!



We got Primaris Death Company…it’s only a matter of time, right?
