now i know your going to have something to say about this awesomeness so let me say now this is a fun list made just to have 3 wolf lords in it. you have the one for monstrous creatures with the thunder hammer, and two for infantry. fenrisian wolves for ablative wounds if they shoot at em. the grey hunters go 2 to 1 anti infantry lord. i know they are mostly in Razors but to keep up with the lord they will most likely move 12" and have to get out to shoot anyway. at least afterwards the razor will still be worth something and not just sit there shooting a storm bolter the whole game. just 6 missiles, i know it's not a lot but i have to have some right? i know im spending a huge amount of points on my hq units but they do sooo much i figure i want to try out a list with three. at 1500 points there isn't going to be a lot to take it down. I've heard that sometimes too much of a good thing is bad but...well...let's say it's just enough here lol.

There are too many points in the HQs, too few scoring units and little to no EFFECTIVE CC ability besides the 3 lords who will be targeted by large units and bogged down for most of the game while your small troop units and the LFs will struggle to do the majority of the work. I see this getting an epic fail against hordes in other words.

I actually think something like this COULD work but the list feels a little weird to me.

I think three Lord is REALLY pushing it, what do you think about running TWO lords with some TWC support. You could drop the Fenresian Wolves, longsfangs, and wolguard and pack in two decent sized units, then fill in the rest of the point with grey hunters.

Kitted out with wound allocations (normal, bolter, meltabombs) the TWC cost 155 points, you could fit in 2 squads plus another two grey hunter packs and upgrade the rhino unit you have to a razorback. You could really keep the fangs or even take 2x units of 3x fangs w/ 2x ML in rhinos for ghetto ML razorbacks.

If you want to keep the three lords though I think it would be a really amusing list as is. I advocate one of them taking warrior born to annihilate infantry unit after infantry unit but I know you said previously you didn't like that.

Cav are more effective for there points and keep with the feel of the list. Also, with T5 and 3++ you're lords almost immune to insta-gib anyway, if you want a saga make him more killy (ie. use SotWB). The WG need a pod, and then they'll just rape LRs/LRBTs etc. You can screen your lords with Rhinos, they don't need 5 wolves each, just get them a pair themselves and use the points to get las/plas on your RBs. There you go.
Good hunting,

first off to gen.ahab. no. i already said once that it's a fun list. also, im not so sure it will fail against horde. for starters i could run the two lords with frost blades together against 1 unit at a time. large units will fall sooner and then if it's a bunch of small units i can split them up. i'm not saying it's the best list out there, just that it wouldn't out right fail. Don't even picture this in anything official. not even in a local event, no, like I've stated, it's just for fun. also 4 troop choices at 1500 isn't enough for you? what do you run 5 or 6? seriously, 4 is more than enough at 1500. there may only be 6 guys in the squad but still, there are 4 groups.

i think saga of the warrior born is great but the 35 points is horrid. i wanted three lords but i didn't want them to cost anymore than they really had too. i already had the one for dreads and defilers and MC. i figured the other two should be enough for anti infantry. i gave the one lord saga of the bear, even though it costs the same as warrior born because he is for killing dreads and the like. he has a thunder hammer so he is going last and say he goes against a dreadnought, if one hits and wounds and i fail my save he's gone. he needs the eternal warrior.

all together it's not for winning so much as running 3 lords at the same time.

oh and raptors 8th, the WG are in the rhinos with the grey hunters. 4 mobile double melta troops for popping AV anything.

Too few men. They are to small to really do much. Right number of groups but not enough men, they are too easy to kill. I like a good 26-30 men in my troop units at 1.5K. Although I suppose this will be fun to play.... I just have more fun if I wipe the table with whoever I am playing. lol I shouldn't have said it was fail epicaly.... that was intemperate, should have said it will have problems with it.
