so you have a lot of guys and you have the land raider without the whole thing costing a fortune. 563 points with the priest and wolf guard. its expensive, dont get me wrong, but it's a fairly decent hammer unit that wont leave you too badly off if the whole thing goes boom. you have the priest giving them fearless and preferred enemy and adding a power weapon, a wolf guard with a fist, 2 melta's and a combi melta, plus all the bodies there, a wulfen and a standard.

not a lot of ranged shooting but i figure the melta will make up for that against tanks and such and all the bodies will help with rate of fire. plus i can double assault units that are too big ie gaunts or a IG blob squad.

i'd trade a couple of those troop choices for some heavy support.

The standard boosts hand to hand abilities correct? Is it considered that grey hunters are a leet hand to hand squad?

you don't need 5 PF in the WG squad. drop 3 of them at least and add in a FB.

your GH squads are large, but i'd seriously consider taking transports.

if you feel confident with LD8 on your Troops, go with it. i don't think i would, so i'd take more WG to supplement my GH.

lastly, give the Dreads TL AC. you'll need it as they may never get in range to use the HF.

good hunting.

dude, did you even read my list? the wg have 5 fists because they are pack leaders for the grey hunters. everything has transports and the dread without the 2 auto cannons is a guard for the other one. assault cannons are still good.

and grey hunters are just about as good ass khorne zerkers at the same points but they have counter charge, special weapons, and bolters. so yeah. they are pretty L33T in hand to hand, and the standard lets them re roll all rolls of a '1' in 1 assault phase during the entire game, just 1 but it still is a great help sometimes.
