The Thunderwolf Cavalry is an elite small unit of the Space Wolves that ride into battle atop massive Fenrisian Thunderwolves. These warriors do not appear in any official Imperial records and are so seldom seen in battle that they are almost mythical. The Space Wolves continue to officially deny the existence of this cavalry.
Thunderwolves are truly monstrous beasts: they can stand eight feet at the shoulder, their thick fur is as thick as steel wire, and their jaws, filled with huge and rapidly interchangeable teeth, can chew through steel. Loners by nature, they will attack each other immediately, as if each seeks dominance over every other wolf on the planet.
Rumor has it that capturing and "breaking in" a Thunderwolf is a rite of passage among the upper ranks of the Wolf Guard, and some of these warriors have demonstrated enough control over their wolves to be able to tame them as war mounts, often augmented with adamantium cheeks, hydraulic strength boosts, and razor-sharp metal claws.
There is at least one high quality vid steal from Thunderwolf Cavalry riding in battle against a mob of heavily armored Ork Nobz.
In 954.M41, Logan Grimnar directed his elite Thunderwolf Riders to hunt down the massive and terrible monstrosity of Cyriax that was terrorizing Hive-Necros. Though fleeting, the legend of giant warriors riding metal-skinned wolf demons spread across the planet.
