The Space Wolves are a legion in the Space Marine Legions in the universe of Warhammer 40,000. Being a member of the Space Wolves is no easy task, as they are known for extreme brutality and self sacrifices. Unlike most Marine factions, the Space Wolves rely on their raw strength, skills, and knowledge instead of equipment and machinery. Most common Warhammer 40k Space Wolves will use modern projectile weapons, but usually have an ax or other bladed weapon.
Blood Claw is a rank given to Space Wolves that have only been through very basic training. These Space Wolves are the standard infantry and make up a good portion of the overall Space Wolves army (which consists of 1440 marines). As the Blood Claws fight they are monitored based on performance and overall kills. Some will progress to higher ranks.
The rank of Skyclaw is given to some of the Blood Claws that are rowdy troublemakers who function on adrenalin and are always eager to kill. A Skyclaw is given a jump pack so that they can advance quickly towards the battlefield.
Grey Hunters are Blood Claws that are calm and have survived many battles. These troops are used as long range fighters, and excel in pure assault. Any Grey Hunters that survive many battles, and kill many enemies become Long Fangs. There are many less Long Fangs that Grey Hunters, but they function as a devastator squad as they have great accuracy and heavy weaponry.
Wolf Scouts are Space Wolves that left their pack, have been left behind, or their entire pack has been killed. Instead of joining a new pack, these soldiers dawn lighter armor and train themselves for speed and agility. They find out information regarding enemies and report back to the Great Wolf (the leader of the all of the Space Wolves).
