It is soooo hard for me to stick with one army and I invariably begin collecting small forces of a bunch of them. I want to begin taking my two favorite armies seriously however and I'm looking at upping my lists into more competitive builds. So without further ado here is my gunline.

HQ
Bjorn the Fell-Handed
plasma cannon

Rune Priest
wolf tail talisman
JotWW / living lightning

Rune Priest
storm caller / JotWW

Troops
Grey Hunterx5
flamer
razorback
TL lascannon

Grey Hunterx5
flamer
razorback
TL lascannon

Grey Hunterx5
flamer
razorback

Heavy
Long Fangsx5
missile launcherx4

Long Fangsx5
missile launcherx4

Long Fangsx5
missile launcherx4

Total: 1235

Bjorn is pretty much the only thing I want to stay on the list because of awesome plasma goodness and I think he would be a fun, random element to an otherwise more competitive list. The rune priests go in the lascannon razorbacks to take advantage of the protection and the storm caller from the hull of the razorback. Here is my one big question in that I'm not sure what psychic powers I want between the two I have up above and JotWW, and if I can only use one per turn without them being a master when and how should I use them?

I intend to simply stick everything in a gunline with bjorn between two razorbacks to protect his rear and side armor. I've actually never played space marines in any form so any tips are welcome too. I have read the wolves tactica and that was very helpful too.

And on a final note, am I right in understanding my best bet to deal with a LR is to hit with my lascannons or get a ton of glances with my missile launchers?

The armies I typically play are Tau, IG, generic SMx2, BA, Eldar if that helps.

Ah I didn't notice that little thing about them all having to be unique and I've adjusted the above list accordingly. So does that mean that both psychic powers have to be unique or can the two priests share one power and the second be a different one?

If I need melta than would it be a good idea to replace the flamers with meltaguns?

As for the HQ's I really love Bjorn and was going to get a Forgeworld venerable SW dread for him and I think I still may include him. Maybe I could drop one rune priest to fill out the grey hunter squads but it just seems like those rune priests are soooo damn good.

Thank you very much Mr. ahab. Here is some rep for all your troubles! Perhaps I will leave Bjorn at home and instead get some of those pack leaders you spoke of. In addition I'll look at some regular dreads in a pod or filling out my troops.

Oh and for the long fangs I was wondering where everyone gets their missile launchers besides trading? Are there different models of them so the squad doesn't all look uniform?
