This is an odd idea for me. It abuses the allied chart by sharing conferred USRs.

White Scars:
Khan

5 Bikes (2x Grav)
5 Bikes (2x Grav)
4 Bikes + Attack Bike (2x Melta)(MM)
4 Bikes + Attack Bike (2x Melta)(MM)

3x Attack Bikes (3x MM)


Space Wolves:
Wolf Lord (Thunderwolf, PF, SS, Runic Armor)

5 Grey Hunters (DP, Plasma, Plasma Pistol)

5 Thunderwolf Cav


Dark Angels:
Company Master (Bike, Artificer Armor, SS, TH)
Ravenwing Command Squad (no upgrades)

5 Tactical Marines (DP, Melta, Combi-Melta)

3 Ravenwing Black Knights

=1999



So the idea is to run Khan with the Thunderwolves giving them Scout and Hit & Run.

Send the Wolf Lord with the Black Knights, also giving him Scout and Hit & Run, as well as Skilled Rider.

Company Master can go with his own Command Squad to give him Scouts/Skilled Rider/H&R.

Then I have two Drop Pods, one as a melta bomb, the other plasma.

Then the bikes are own their own to be fast melta or grav.

I know someone is going to have heartburn about my total lack of flyer defense at 2000 points, but flyers have never hurt me. Nobody in my group brings them because they feel they are a total waste of points. My friends say they never get their points back on them. And if someone does get a wild hair and bring one, my army is fast enough to duck and dodge it most of the time anyway.

Now that youre at it, why not drop the Grey Hunters for more Thunderwolves and use the Puppy detachment with Heroes of Fenris supplement? That's how that list plays here.. You lose a pod but get +1WS and break up the meta even more.

You're right about not taking any anti-air as you need a lot or nothing. My Eldar Corsairs would roast you alive with 8 flyers but if you don't face that kind of things... ;)

I've got the Champions of Fenris Supplement, but I don't know of any thunderwolf friendly formations. Even the Great Wolf Detachment doesn't benefit them, just lets me bring more elites and lose objective secured.

I will face one or two flyers in some lists, but nothing terrible. A flyer spam list would really suck to play against. Luckily nobody wants to spend the money to build one around here.

I was under the impression that NONE of the rules or army lists allowed you to modify troop options; you can't even go with Fenrisian Wolves as troops like the old edition.

the champions of fenris supplement has a different forceorg
requirements are 1 hQ 2 elite
and the bound bonus is +1 ws for wolfguard and thunderwolf cav

(and as allies you will be using that force org and not half of it)
