Whatever the HQ is it isn't effective. What I go with is 9 ML at 1500 points with razorbacks. At 1500 you don't need 4 squads of GHs, 3 will do just fine and I would use the points left to get another RP if you plan on going with a gun line. Give them all MotW though to give them some more CC punch if needed. You could have some trouble with av14 though. You only need 3 Wg.

What psychic powers are on your rune priest (I'm just kind of assuming that's what it is :p )? I personally like JotWW, Living Lightning, or Murderous Hurricane/Tempest's Wrath.

I suggest dropping one ML long fang in each squad and two more wolf guard. Every one of your long fangs squads does not need a wolf guard. With the freed up points I would put your fifth wolf guard that is still sitting in the long fangs squad terminator armor and a CML. Then I would put a MotW in as many grey hunter squads as you can.

Your rune priest also does not need runic armor although I'm not quite sure what you could effectively spend it on. Maybe dozer blades on your rhinos so they do not get caught up in difficult terrain.

Other than that it looks like it will do reasonably well.

Sorry, those were suppose to be lasplas razors. Lol if you have anything left from that I suggest Hf MM land speeders. BTW what powers are you going to use? And you also need to give one RP a bolter to switch up the wargear. I wouldn't suggest deploying only one LS though so if you don't have enough for two you could just try and fit some more MLs if you like.

I would always add the power fist into the grey hunter packs. Expensive but a total of 5 power fist attacks charging and re rolling ones gives then somethiung of a cutting edge. I would consider dropping a few grey hunters to do this and try and bump up the numbers of Long fangs.

It would probabaly be worth considering a squad of scouts by dropping the landspeeder. They will muck up your opponent's deployment plans more than anything and having used them alot they are very much worth it.

It's just a solid semi razorspam army tactics are pretty simple. You sit back with long fnags and blow the hell out of enemy mech/MC's with the long fangs and lascannons on razorbacks. you can spread 15 missile and 3 lascannon shots around 9 different targets so at 1500 it is a fine amount of anti mech. The troops have 2 meltaguns each to blow up enemy transports while remaining in their rhino or simply rapidfire the hell out of infantry. Alternatively they can sit back and let the runepriests help the long fangs finish off your opponents mech. Once they get close you can fight them with the GH on your own terms as hopefully you will have crushed their mech.

If their is a weakness to this list it is that it only has 6 av 11 vehicles and 3 of those contain grey hunter meaning your own maneuverability is quickly stifled. However this is somewhat abated by the ridiculous threat of the long fangs which should draw a lot of early fire. It's a very solid list but I don't think it's as efficient as full razorspam lists I have seen.
