Default A few 1500 Wolf List

I want to convert my SM to wolf. SM just doesn’t have what it takes to win. I’m hoping that using grey hunters and long fangs are enough to make them better. I’m trying to work with what I have, without too many extra purchases.

Also as a side note on the conversion side. I didn’t want to have to paint in sw colors, but just use my old silver & blue and change out the shoulder pads and convert a few sm to have both ccw and bolters. My club's resident fat rule-lawyering fuck said that wouldn’t be wysiwyg, saying that the army at least needs to be painted like sw to be wysiwyg. I’m kind of a stickler for wysiwyg as far as war gear goes so I can kind of understand the argument, however I think it’s a rather draconian ruling. What’s the generally accepted view on this? Can I run a sm list using sw rules(or any other chapter) in a tourney without using that chapters colors?

This first list is more of a “this is what I have kind” of thing (minus the long fangs) I’m sure this list will suck cause of the terminators, but like I said it’s what I’ve got…(Also 1 point over)

Rune Priest Terminator
Rifleman Dread x2
5 Wolf Guard Terminators x5 w/ PF + 2 normal Wolf Guard w/ Combi Melta
2x 9 Grey Hunters + Melta in Rhino(each squad gets a normal Wolf Guard)
2x 5 Long Fangs + 4 ML in Razorback w/ TLLC
2x Land Speeders w/ HF & MM

Next list is Razorback spam(does that even work for wolf). 21 points remain for extra gear.

Rune Priest
Rifleman Dread x2
3 Wolf Guard w/ Combi Melta & PF
4x 5 Grey Hunters + Melta in Razorback w/ TLAC(One squad gets Rune Priest other three each get a wolf guard)
2x 5 Long Fangs + 4 ML in Razorback w/ TLLC

Last list uses cheaper Rhinos and larger squads. 40 points remain for extra gear.

Rune Priest x2
Rifleman Dread x2
2x 9 Grey Hunters + Melta & PF in Rhino(each squad gets Rune Priest)
2x 6 Long Fangs + 5 ML in Razorback w/ TLLC
2x Land Speeders w/ Typhoon ML

Any of these look remotely decent?

Sure, if you can come up with some fluff that explains why they look that way.

This first list is more of a ďthis is what I have kindĒ of thing (minus the long fangs) Iím sure this list will suck cause of the terminators, but like I said itís what Iíve gotÖ(Also 1 point over)
Without knowing what other models you have all I can really do is give some CC of have on paper.

Over all the lists look ok, but they are not really playing to the strengths of the wolf dex.

Rune Priest Terminator
This is a very general statement, but if you are using Terminators in the wolf dex you are wasting points. What powers dose the Priest havem?
Rifleman Dread x2
With long fangs being so cheap riflemen are just wasted points.
5 Wolf Guard Terminators x5 w/ PF + 2 normal Wolf Guard w/ Combi Melta
2x 9 Grey Hunters + Melta in Rhino(each squad gets a normal Wolf Guard)
Looks good but you still need a standard and a MotW
2x 5 Long Fangs + 4 ML in Razorback w/ TLLC
Very good, but I would find the points of the 5th ML.
2x Land Speeders w/ HF & MM
Typhoon ML

Next list is Razorback spam(does that even work for wolf). 21 points remain for extra gear.
RB Spam works very well for wolves

Rune Priest
Powers?
Rifleman Dread x2
Same
3 Wolf Guard w/ Combi Melta & PF
Its the correct WG setup but I dont think its worth the points in a RB spam list, but thats just me.
4x 5 Grey Hunters + Melta in Razorback w/ TLAC(One squad gets Rune Priest other three each get a wolf guard)
Good, but I would add in a MotW.
2x 5 Long Fangs + 4 ML in Razorback w/ TLLC
Good, just needs the 5th ML.

Last list uses cheaper Rhinos and larger squads. 40 points remain for extra gear.
I like this one the best
Rune Priest x2
I run 2 RPs in most of my lists, please keep in mind that they cant have the same exact powers and wargear.
Rifleman Dread x2
Same
2x 9 Grey Hunters + Melta & PF in Rhino(each squad gets Rune Priest)
MotW and standards
2x 6 Long Fangs + 5 ML in Razorback w/ TLLC
Nice!
2x Land Speeders w/ Typhoon ML
Also good, but I would max out my long fangs first.
Any of these look remotely decent?

Thanks for the feedback sicking. Looks like i'll start with the last list to get my feet wet, a single box of tactical marines along with a ton of hunter killer missile conversions, ought to be enough.

I do see what you mean about the rifleman dreads, once i have a few sw games under my belt(along with some more financial resources) I’ll rotate them out.
