Default 1k Space Wolves

Well I'm trying to make a choice with a) which space wolves list to run and b) if this army is the right choice (my other army is a nurgle based csm force) due to life moving on I can only keep 1 army so I'm kind of starting fresh and I need to pick one or the other but what I'm trying to do here is start of with a semi competative army that I can take to GW or anothe local store with the end goal of being able to play in tournaments with the army too, this includes because of funds no allies (yes i know it can make it harder but ill try) Just thought I would pass this info on and hopefully give you an idea of what I'm aiming for with my army.

List 1

Hq
Rune priest - 100pts
Not to sure on powers but ill work that out soon enough

Elites
3 wolf guard - 134
3 TDA 3 combi plasma 1 chain fist 1 wolf claw 1 power sword

Dreadnought - 140
Assault cannon, storm bolter
Drop pod

Troops
7 grey hunters - 160
Plasma gun, wolf standard
Drop pod

8 grey hunters - 175
Plasma gun, wolf standard
Drop pod

8 grey hunters - 175
Plasma gun, wolf standard
Drop pod

4 swiftclaws - 120
Melta gun power weapon

List 2

Hq
Rune priest - 115pts
Wolf tail talisman
Wolf tooth necklace
Not to sure on powers but ill work that out soon enough

Elites
3 wolf guard - 134
3 TDA 3 combi plasma 1 chain fist 1 wolf claw 1 power sword

Dreadnought - 150
Assault cannon, heavy flamer
Drop pod

Troops
7 grey hunters - 190
Plasma gun, wolf standard wulfen
Power weapon
Drop pod

8 grey hunters - 205
Plasma gun, wolf standard wulfen
Power weapon
Drop pod

8 grey hunters - 205
Plasma gun, wolf standard wulfen power weapon
Drop pod

I'm planning of making a drop pod force with the space wolves and was wondering how you think either list might go and what tips you can pass on to help make this a better force.

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

Living lightning is never a bad choice

The terminator armour is an interesting choice, I recently went with it for a list of my own. In regards to weapons I don't think the combi plasmas are needed, maybe flamers or frost weapons for the strength boost. Same goes for the chainfist, frost axe could be a pretty good choice for him.

If your podding him in then the multi-melta would probably be a good weapon swap. Otherwise nothing else to really say here.

Your priest and wolf guard are all armed for close combat but these packs they are going to lead are based more around shooting. I'd recommend swapping some plasmaguns out for either flamers or meltaguns, and maybe go for some power weapons to do more damage in close combat.

Given the lower BS of swiftclaws I'd suggest a flamer over the meltagun; meshes a bit better with the power weapon as well.


Of the two lists I like your first one better; more groups of bodies across those thousand points. However what I've said about list one is the same for list two.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Well new list with a couple of changes only thing I'm worries about is flyers.
But I guess without allies that's the hard part so what do you think?
