Hello folks, ive put up a few lists, and i think ive made a fairly solid finalized list. obviously anything can be improved especially by another pair of eyes. so, any and all comments are welcome. Im open to all suggestions. Thanks in advance!

HQ:
Wolf Lord w/ Dual WCs, BoR, WTT, TWolf, SotB - 250pts
again, I know, I know, hes as much as a LR. But hes a monster as far as i can tell. But if you think a few priests or something else that would work better, let me know.

Elites:
5 Termie Wolfguard w/ CML, Dual WCs, PF, LR - 470pts
thought this would be a good centre to the army, a solid CC unit plus the ranged support of the LR

Troops:
10 Grey Hunters w/ x2 meltas, PF, Rhino w/ RA - 230pts
10 Grey Hunters w/ x2 meltas, PF, Rhino w/ RA - 230pts
5 Grey Hunters w/ flamer, PW, Razorback w/ TL LasCannon - 165pts
5 Grey Hunters w/ flamer, PW, Razorback w/ TL LasCannon - 165pts
Figured this is a pretty good core of troops. adding lots of tanks to the table to split fire off the LR so on and so forth. Thoughts?

Fast Attack:
3 Thunderwolf Cavalry w/ TH - 180pts (Lord goes here)
A good anti-infantry troop killer sqd w/ the lord. they will be shielded by the tanks until they get in range plus the WTT from the lord to shield them from things like lashes and what not.

Heavies:
5 Long Fangs w/ 4 MLs, razorback w/ HB - 155pts
5 Long Fangs w/ 4 MLs, razorback w/ HB - 155pts
Fairly standard i think in a wolves army. Wont deploy in the razorbacks, just wanted some more tanks on the field.

2000pts

so any help would great!

Looks pretty sweet. I would probably take a storm shield and a frost weapon/thunder hammer instead though. SotB isn't worth it, if you let something str 10 charge you, your long fangs have failed. And if you do, the storm shield is a decent deterrent. I would take saga of the beasthunter or whatever it is. Rerolls to hit with a thunder hammer or frost blade are better than the wolf claws imo. Probably don't need the WTT either. I'd find the points to just invest in a rune priest. The staff alone is the best anti-psyker.

Never used the wolfguard termies before but from what I read on here generally only the 5th guard is upgraded to a terminator for the missile launcher or the odd chainfist.

10 Grey Hunters w/ x2 meltas, PF, Rhino w/ RA - 230pts

Looks good, I'd probably switch the LC razorbacks with the long fang ones though. That way if you need to drive quickly, you're not losing out. The PW isn't worth it on the small squads either, and MotW is actually better against nearly everything but heavily armoured targets. But you weren't planning on fighting those with the small units anyways. The big squads should take wolf standards as well, its an amazing upgrade

need to gear them different for wound allocation. I wouldn't take all special weapons either as they already have str 5 with rending. Take 1 TH, 1 SS, and 1 vanilla.

Looks good, swap the razorbacks as I said above.

Wow, i never really thought about some of those things. +rep dude. thanks. Heh, see, this is why i dont mind posting a list i think is good. it just keeps getting better. So i ended dropping a grey hunter squad, changing some weapon options. i figure the awesomeness of the runic weapon and his powers help the wolf priest pretty much make up or are better then the lost squad. tell me what you think. again, any comments are welcome!

HQ:
Wolf Lord w/ FB, SS, TWolf - 200pts

Rune Priest w/ Muderous Hurricane, Living Lightning - 100pts
this dude just rocks, the runic weapon is just awesome and those powers can be devestating!

Elites:
6 Wolfguard w/ 1 termie armour&CML, Dual WCs, PF, PW, LR - 463pts

Troops:
10 Grey Hunters w/ x2 meltas, PF, Standard, Rhino w/ EA - 240pts
9 Grey Hunters w/ melta, PF, Rhino w/ EA - 225pts (Priest goes here)
6 Grey Hunters w/ flamer, PW, Razorback w/ TL LasCannon - 165pts

Fast Attack:
3 Thunderwolf Cavalry w/ TH, SS - 210pts (Lord goes here)

I would suggest you give the lord SoTWB, it will turn him into a CC demigod. Also, I would suggest you take out the wolf lord and the TWC and put in another RP and more LF units. That or go with a full TW army.

I would agree to swap out the TWC but if you like them i would swap out the extra armor on the rhinos get rid of the power weapons in the razorback and prob switch it to the plasma gun and las cannon. I would also try to find points to put a wolf guard w a pf and combimelta in the 2 rhinos of grey hunters.

Looks good, if going with FB maybe look at SotWB or beastslayer. I would go with beastslayer myself. He's pretty sweet as is though.

Can't go wrong here, choser of the slain is a great upgrade if both of your powers rely on BS to hit or if using LL a lot.

Elites:
6 Wolfguard w/ 1 termie armour&CML, Dual WCs, PF, PW, LR - 463pts

Cool, I would probably break the termie armour WG off and join him with your long fangs once you deploy or with a grey hunter squad. So that he can be shooting every turn. Ultimately, the LR is a point sink as every meltagun will be gunning for it BUT it will guarantee your WG get there. Just something to think about. It could buy you another gray hunter squad.

Troops:
10 Grey Hunters w/ x2 meltas, PF, Standard, Rhino w/ EA - 240pts
9 Grey Hunters w/ melta, PF, Rhino w/ EA - 225pts (Priest goes here)
6 Grey Hunters w/ flamer, PW, Razorback w/ TL LasCannon - 165pts

Looks good, although with a flamer you want to get up close and personal but the TL Lascannon wants to stay back and shoot. Either swap the flamer for something else or just use the razorback with the TL Heavy Bolters.

Fast Attack:
3 Thunderwolf Cavalry w/ TH, SS - 210pts (Lord goes here)

Looks good, I don't care what people say, I love my TWC.

Heavies:
5 Long Fangs w/ 4 MLs, razorback w/ TL Lascannon - 190pts
5 Long Fangs w/ 4 MLs, razorback w/ TL Lascannon - 190pts

Can't go wrong with these. Engage upto 6 different targets at range, yes please!

Trust in Gen.ahab, his comments are usually pretty good! I love my TWC, both gamewise and fluff purposes - and while more grey hunters is probably a solid bet, TWC will still perform. They also help limit your enemies alpha strike potential as they can't be shut down by heavy weapons easily.
