It looks like a retarded wolf - with it's tongue lolling the way it does.

The other thunderwolves will snicker and laugh whenever he's around.

"Oh, that's just fred. He hasn't been the same since he got smacked by a thunderhammer."

I honestly think he should be called the thundercat, is would be so awesome.

Thundercats are on the loose man, watch out.

Easily more terrifying than a *yawn* big wolf. Squiggles are nasty nasty creatures. Fickle, too...:shifty:

Lol, both Helsing and ashc has valid points, looks like a strange crossbreed between a wolf, a cat and that squirrel from ice-age. I think I'll call it:
Scratch; the Thunder-cat!

No, it doesn't look a thing like a cat (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_kKROi_P05Ao/Ss29hRu7wZI/AAAAAAAAAfo/MpeENympasM/s400/CAT+-+1.JPG) :angel:

What makes it funnier is where the Fenrisian Wolves come from. :D

the discussion at my gw refers to it as either a squirrel or a rat. definitely not a wolf. I'm coming to the conclusion gw's animal sculptors don't like to distract themselves with accuracy, the minotaurs are just as bad on the "have you ever seen a cow?" front.

This made me laugh :D

The chapter should be renamed the "Space Cats" chapter :D

It's butt-ugly...that's what it is...I wouldn't want to be seen riding a thing like that...glad I'm playing CSM's...at least we know we are butt-ugly AND are proud of it (thx to father Nurgle).:D

Speak for yourself... I'm sure Slaaneshi marines would disagree with you.... :D

The Thundersquirrelatolf has clearly succumbed to Nurgle's wicked touch.

Moehaha, that's probably true about those Slaaneshi dudes but I think that even Father Nurgle wouldn't want to take credit for that Thundersquirrelatolf...:shifty:...(whispers) it's really, really butt-ugly...;)

Hilarious...maybe you can write a new novel about it...in the same style as "Bored of the Rings"...you have the best writing style I've seen in ages so feel free to let your mind wander that path...to boldly go where no minger has gone before... :D

To be fair, it looks more like some sort of mutant Staffordshire Bull Terrier than a cat or a squirrel.. but it sure ain't a decent wolf. Length of muzzle, ffs.

It looks freaking terrible.

Such a wasted opportunity, because the artwork and background in the codex depicts a horrific looking beast with 4 massive curved fangs that grow out from the back of it's jaw and out to sabertooth proportions.

In the codex it looks like some brutal cross between a shire horse-sized bulldog and a sabertooth tiger, but the model looks like some stupid yiff joke off 4chan.

space marine: "omg i is ridin a wolf lolz, lookit my clawz"
wolf: "lololol"

You have no idea how much worse it actually is.
Fenrisian wolves may not be native to fenris :)

Let me guess - they were introduced by Imperial scientists to control the nut population..?

They may be affecting the red wolf population, but Imperial Scientists debate this theory.

It's about time that Little Red Riding Hood takes charge of that Chapter again...and of GW as well...don't really get it how they seem to make fantastic stuff and then throw in some butt-ugly things as well...is there really no one at GW who does product control??

why hasnt anyone commented on the powerfistclaws canis has lol. the hands themselves are HUGE! lol, looks like he's in a bad anime movie.

with some converting the model can look good though. having to chop up a 55$ model kinda blows tho...

If you really wanted it to be ferocious, impervious to pain and utterly psychotic...you should paint it up as a badger :).

Seriously, lose the tail, then paint it charcoal grey with a black and white striped muzzle - you've got a steed so vicious ever Khornate Juggernauts will wet themselves.

Not any less lame than riding a wolf. Space wolves have become a parody. Leading packs of wolves into battle riding giant wolves? That's not what marines do, that's frickin retarded.

I used Chaos mounts from Fantasy for my Thunderwolves. Now my Space Wolves ride Thunderhorses. This leads to many Metalocalypse jokes...

Space Wolf: How shall lead our armies of Marines and "Special" Wolves into battle my lord?
Canis: I shall lead them into battle...mounted on the back of a thundersquiratolfadger...even though I shall look retarded...marine fetch me my overly-sized lightning claws

Hell, you're right :) Or perhaps an African Honey Badger ('Ratel'), the most vicious evil little bastard in the universe..

I think its easily the most stupid and ridiculous model the sculpters have released since most of the Dark Eldar range!

Incredibly lame figure, not a cat or dog, just a big ugly toy pet.

And it's also an instance of the painter going overboard with crisp shading. Looks more like a barnacle than white fur, or maybe the beast's fur is entirely, evenly coated in sharp mats. If the style was a little dirtier and had some actual, visible brush strokes in it, it might have looked like fur.
