im doing a 500 point tournament tomorrow.

im wondering if i need a wolf guard to stop my blood claws charging around the battle field if i have a rune priest with them aswell.

so

13 blood claws
1 rune priest
1 wolf guard
mounted in a crusader

which is to many points for a 500 point battle lol

so does any one want to help me out with a list ?

for wolves i have eldar one already sorted

1 hq per 750 points do i need one legally for a 500 point battle?

if so

rune priest
iron halo
artificer armor
force weapon
wolf tooth necklace
wolf pelt
plasma or bolt pistol

around 170-80 points

a rhino
+hunter killer + 65 points

a rhino
+hunter killer + 65 points

5 claws
1 fist
krak and melta bombs
112

5 claws
1 fist
krak and melta bombs
112


= 534 points ;_(

any suggestions on getting them down they may change rules for 500 point battles but i want to have a 2 troops 1 hq list ready

thanks

erm ur blood claws need to be units of 8 minimun (Or 6) and you are spending WAY to much on a hq at 500 points. im not too sure i think it states if you have to have one in the rules (dont have my codex to hand) under 750 points.

i would go

hq
cheapest hq with power weapon, bolt pistol

1 unit of 8 blood claws - 1 power weapon, 1 power fist
in rhino with extra armour and smoke

1 unit of 6 grey hunters - 1 melta gun, power first
in razorback with twin lascannon, extra armour, smoke

anything spare put into more modules in your blood claws (up to 9) or getting a jump pack for your hq and making the claws a unit of 10

hope this helps

i dont understand what you're trying to say....surely having two extra bloodclaws is better than an expensive weapon that will be wasted?

in a 500 point game, more models is better than a hard model.

i dont know blood claws are ws/bs 3

and my rune priest will hit on 3s so i think the priest will be better than claws as he gets just as many attacks as 2 claws almost

might be making some slight changes to my eldar list so watch this space

1 Faseer
Singing Spear
Runes Of Warding
Doom
4 warlock bodyguards with powers and spears
250-270


10 pathfinders
240

my pathfinders cut down troops with sniper fire

my hq casts doom on the target most leathal to the army and blows up tanks with spears

warlocks use offensive and defensive powers

the hq squad is good in combat helps the pathfinders and can take out tanks...

its basically a ven dred hq choice for space wolves but in squad form

i could drop a warlock add more pathfinders ?

i may change my lis according to the player im up against but if i do that i always loose

so

i have

anti troop- troop squads
anti troop- hq squad
anti tank - hq squad

not much else needed i think ?

banshees would be great but then i would need transport sicnce its 3 players per a table not alot of scenery to hide behind

and last match there were 5 guard players a alot of mariens the others were orks dark eldar and chaos

so

eldar or space wolves shakes htigns up in the styles you play them
