Take my advice with a grain of salt because I'm a new wolves player too but here is what I would do to improve.

You have a large part of your list wrapped up in two characters, one of which will be footslogging in TEQ all the way across the board which is not a good thing. For the same points you could get two rune priests with good equipment which would provide much more support for your army.

I would also think about finding one clear strategy and implementing that into your list because it seems rather jumbled right now. I don't know how effective footslogging is in this meched up metagame but I can see right off the bat that you do not have enough to pop enemy transports and you don't have enough protection for your own units. You could drop your first wolf lord (without the TEQ) and get a land raider transport for all your other terminators. If you follow that line of thought and want to mech up then I would drop some things like the iron priest, lone wolf, and fenrisian wolves, and one wolf lord to get rhinos / razorbacks for your grey hunters and a wolf guard w/ a pf for each unit.

If you want to stay on the path of the footsloggers (what it looks like now), then I would still drop a wolf lord to kit out your other units. Get more long fangs with lascannons or more missile launchers to pop transports and more wolf guard so you can have a hidden PF in each unit. Hell in fact get more long fangs anyway because they are amazing!

Also, rune priests are god damn amazing and you could use more psychic defense. I would pick up at least one if you can with either JotWW, living lightning, storm caller, or tempest's wrath depending on who you are facing. Things like JotWW will murder tyranid monstrous creatures while tempest's wrath will seriously hurt fast moving armies like jump pack BA.

Hope this helps!

Drop the second wolf lord, drop the iron priests and drop the wolf guard. Now replace the lord with a rune priest and the wolf guard with 3 PA PF CM WG. Next drop 1 GH from each group and 2 from the last then drop the plas and flamers for meltas and add MotW and a standard. After that I would drop the wolves and replace them with a FA unit of 5TWC with a PF on one SS on another and maybe a melta bomb or something, just tool it out for proper wound allocation. Next I would take 3 units of maybe 3 MLs with no melta bomb....... I have no idea why that is there.

EDIT: and ditch the lone wolf.

As an IG/SW player let me stress how important mobility is in 5th ed, and this list doesn't have much it seems. You need Rhinos for your GHs just like you need Chimera for your vets in an IG army. I've had HUGE success with MotW and Wolf Standards, I really think they're a must in GH unit. I tend to run 8 GH with a PA PF CM WG in a Rhino; good for points and better mobility (and slightly more protection for the GH than slogging across the world). If nothing else I'd ditch the Plasma for Meltaguns, you're really short on AV14 cracking stuff. Sasha's right though about having a lot of points wrapped up in two HQ units... almost 1/3rd of your point total; that's pretty high. Anyway those are just my thoughts take them with a grain of salt.

Definitely lose the Termies on foot.

Pick up Rhinos for your GH, and give them 2 meltaguns (better against tanks). Power Weapons and MotW is optional.

Add more Fangs, throw in another TWC Lord and grab a Rune Priest for psychic defense.

errrm, you must not play too competetively:) because, while the list may be fun, it is a footslogger list and can not do well in a competitive environment. i agree with everyone else, drop the second wolf lord and pick up a rune priest, then use the other points to pick up some rhinos. drop the iron priest, they suck majorly. and the lone wolf, unless of course there are some big monstrous creatures, in which case the lone wolf could tie them up and with a power fist could mince them up, but the game needs to be annihilation. swap the plasma guns out for melta guns and put the one squad of GH squad numbers down 8 and the rest to 9 so that some wolf guard can accompany them in their rhinos,o

ok first off your points are off, i feel i say that way too much, before you post something double check the points. your long fangs, or better said, your sisters long fangs are not 90 points. also im assuming you want all missiles because you cant have just one. it says you MUST replace their bolt pistol with a special weapon. at 5 men with 4 missiles, because the squad leader cant take one, is 115 points.

second off foot slogging can be ok in some lists and against some armies. but as far as versatility, which is very important, walking everything is not efficient. your load out on your grey hunters is also not pretty. i usually use one of two basic unit compositions, with variants but still they remain basically the same.

1) assault troops
9x grey hunters
standard
melta
mark of the wulfen
rhino
200

and i add in a wolf guard with a power fist and a combi melta. thats LD9 for the whole unit, an extra fist attack, wulfen for rending, double melta, and the standard for re rolling any roll of a 1 in 1 turn of an assault once per game.

2) razor spamming
5x grey hunters
flamer(cuz its free)
razorback (usually with a lasscannon and twin linked plasma gun)
150

the wolf lord on the thunderwolf mount is awesome. they work wonderfully and are super killy. the other im sure is awesome but if its not on a thunderwolf and you dont give him saga of the bear he is an easy kill.

a basic lone wolf looks cool but he honestly he doesn't really earn his points. in a foot slogging army i could see him doing well though, i would give him something, anything at all really.

your terminators will be destroyed pretty easily for what they are. they should be feared but i would wipe them off the table with a wolf lord on a thunderwolf mount with a frost blade. don't forget that they cant deep strike.

for a beginner list it's pretty normal. it has the potential to become so much better. try out some vehicles. and maybe get lasscannons somewhere or some S10, and definitely get some melta in there.

that looks suspiciously like you made another account for a shameful self bump. just saying...

thats understandable and i do apologize for my rudeness, that was uncalled for. Only reason i did flip out is because it bugs me is that that would be thought of. i understand that its been done b4 and all but what your opinion is is your opinion and i respect it and i wouldnt take it as offensive or anything its constructive criticism.
