The Wolves of Orboros consider themselves kin of the wolf. This attitude extends to literally fighting side by side with half-wild animals treated as brothers. The hulking animals kept by the Wolves of Orboros are of a stocky mountain breed which brings speed, exceptional senses, and raw killing power as their natural assets.

Thoughts on War Wolf
War Wolf in a nutshell
The War Wolf is a cheap skirmisher who provides a little extra bite (pun intended) for Wolf Sworn and has the ability to charge up to 20" in a turn to mangle enemy support models.
Combos & Synergies
- Reeves of Orboros - the absolute best way of getting the War Wolf forward is to have it pounce a skirmisher hit by the Reeves.
- Wolves of Orboros - with the Unit Attachment they can reposition to get deeper into the enemy lines, meaning that the War Wolf can get its gang fighter bonus when charging something that thought it was safe.
- Grayle the Farstrider Storm Ragered War Wolf out of nowhere on an early turn.
Drawbacks & Downsides
- You only get the free charge on something that a Wolf Sworn has already hit (but before the damage roll); the Sic 'em is best used for repositioning.
- Without the Gang Fighter bonus, he doesn't do much damage.
Tricks & Tips
- Great for finishing off a model you failed to kill
Comparison to MKII
Sic em used to just be with Reeves; it's now with all wolf sworn.
