This is an updated and revised list, any comments or suggestions would be helpful and appreciated. I know the Swiftclaw Bikes are underwhelming but I want to give them a try, plenty of shooting and a fair amount of attacks even with the reduced WS and BS. The Wolf Priest and Rune Priest are in units of Grey Hunters. I probably could have left off the armor upgrade for Njal, but since he WILL get shot at, it seemed like a good investment.

I was trying to go for more of an asthetic feel of a particular Wolf Lord, individualism is one of the things that I love about this army. But I will look at some mods based on your suggestions.

Check page 64... you can't spam the same saga, so you'll have to drop beastslayer.

So taking a Darkreever style approach,

Rune Priest-150pts
Terminator armor, Runic weapon, Chooser of the Slain,Wolftooth necklace
Saga of the Beastslayer
Where does this guy hang out... if the intent is to use the Njial model, then I get it... if not, then w/o other Termies, the points seem a little wasted.

Wolf priest-165pts
Plasma pistol, Wolftooth necklace,Wolftail talisman,Saga of the Warrior Born
I'd save the points on this guy and drop the Plasma pistol.... Or give him runic armor and go the 2+ route

Wolf Guard battle leader-150pts
Wolf Claw,Storm Shield, Wolftooth necklace, Wolftail talisman, Melta bombs, Saga of the Beastslayer
Here's a thought... The WGBL and the Wolf Priest have WS5 - do you really need the hits on a 3+
The wolftooth neckace - you already have the best Psych defence in the game w Mr Runepriest... so it just seems like overkill.

Dreadnaught-130 pts
Assault cannon
Dread CCW
Heavy flamer
Wolftooth necklace
Wolftail talisman
Same comment about the necklace and Tail...

(9) Wolf Guard-290 pts
Combi-melta,ccw
Storm bolter, Wolf Claw
Bolt pistol, power weapon
Bolter, ccw
Plasma pistol, ccw
Bolt pistol, Frost Axe
Wolf Claw, Wolf Claw
Bolt pistol, Power fist
Bolt pistol, ccw, Mark of the Wulfen
Drop Pod-35pts
Storm bolter
OK, I'm having a bit of troble figuring out what all in in here, but it sounds like a crap load of special weapons in a drop pod. Its an aweful big deathstar.... but since you can't attack the round you drop, why isn't your opponent shooting everything he has at them as soon as they arrive? Just seems wrong to have that many points in something that's stuck that close to your enemy turn one.

(9) Blood Claws-185pts
6x Bolt pistol, ccw
Plasmagun
Plasma pistol,ccw
Bolt pistol, Power fist
Rhino-35pts
Storm Bolter
So if you're doing it for fluff reasons, then cool... but Blood Claws suck. They're just to fragile (meq's hit on 3+) Also, it's a waste to put special weapons on them since thier BS is craptastic.... PW and Mark of the Wulfin would be a better use of points.

(9) Grey Hunters-160pts
7x Bolter,ccw
Bolter, Power weapon
Meltagun
Wolf Standard
Drop Pod-35pts
Storm bolter
I think you could lose the standard....

(3) Swiftclaw Bikers-115pts
Meltagun
Power Weapon
3x Meltabombs
Swiftclaw Attack Bike-30pts
Heavy Bolter
Same issue as the bloodclaws... but they're cheap.. I might lose the meltabombs.

Vindicator-135pts
Siege Shield, Storm bolter
I would keep this the stock model... the Siege Shield ain't that good. Might keep the second stormbolter though...

Long Fangs-115 pts
2x Heavy Bolter
Missle Launcher
Plasma Cannon

Long Fangs-155pts
2x Heavy Bolter
Multi-Melta
Las Cannon
Plasma Cannon
I think the Plasma Cannon isn't that good of a choice (expensive) The Multi Melta is out of place (24" range sucks for a sit back and shoot stuff squad...) Also, I think you'd be better off with one unit of HB and one unit of special weapons... I don't see the mix and match as being that good for LF. For Codex devs, you can get away with this by putting more models into the squad... but with LF, if you take one hit, you tend to put it on the Squad leader before you have to start dropping specials.... Once that happens you can't split fire... so I'd rather go all of one type of thing to minimze this risk.

Razorback-90pts
Twin linked Lascannon
Dozer blade
Storm bolter
The dozer blade and storm bolter could go and save more points...

The only benefit I can see to the terminator armor is getting an invulnerable save for your Rune Priest, since it's the only option he's got.

As for the Heavy Bolters, I'd ditch them in favor of more lascannons or missile launchers. Heavy bolters exist to kill infantry, which is something that the Grey Hunters you've already got can do quite well.

And yeah, Blood Claws are still underwhelming. A Wolf Priest makes them good, but 10 point standard makes a unit of Grey Hunters even better.

Sweet thanks much, Im gonna make so mods to the list and repost it. Im working on a very small budget so I can only make small gear mods rather than whole unit or model mods. And yes, I think I went a bit overboard with the Wolfguard unit, but I can only make the best of it for the time being. I do have a spare model Im going to convert to a RP to save the points on the termie armor.

Yeah id agree with all the above comments, if you are gonna use it though for lols, i would chage a few things about, put the blood claws and the dreadnought in the drop pods instead, a little bit more sacrificial than 9 WG, put them in a rhino instead, have the DP's come down more or less in the same place, move your bikes top speed to catch up with them, at the very least it will be complete shock and awe, get rid of the wolf standards, MoTW is far better, theres lots to do with this list, I do like lists like this though and often run similar ones myself just for a change, looking forward to seeing the revamped one though.

2K Space Wolves

I edited out the old list and replaced it, probably should have reposted it on this thread. I apprecitae the information, this list I am using presently is working much better for tourneys.

Don't edit original posts, put the edit in a new post. Can lead to confusion. I would advise a total reworking, but, baring that, just drop that pf on the GH unit.
