65* Lone Wolf - Terminator Armour, 2x Wolf Claws
Troops - 180* 10 Grey Hunters - 2x Melta Gun, Power Weapon, Wolf Standard
175* 10 Grey Hunters - 2x Flamer, Power Weapon, Wolf Standard
325* 9 Blood CLaws - Power Wepon, Lukas the Trickster, Drop Pod (inc Ulrik)
Fast Attack - 125* 5 Skyclaws - Melta Gun, Powerfist
70* Landspeeder - Heavy Flamer, Multi-melta
Heavy Support - 115* Predator - Twinlink Lascannon, Hunterkiller Missile
115* Predator - Twinlink Lascannon, Hunterkiller Missile
Right, plan is Njal and the 2 Thunder Hammers will form up and draw alot of fire while his storm causes no end of problems for my oppo. The cyclone will go with the 2x melta Grey hunters to tank and big thing hunt, 4x str 8 shots 2 at AP1 cant beat that. The Claw Terminator will go with the flamer squad and infantry hunt, they can pack a punch is shooting and combat. the bloodclaws with ulrik and lukas drop in on first turn where they can deal with infantry, hq or anything big or nurgle like. the rune priest i can put him with any squad i fell needs an extra pair of hands, i havnt decided on which powers to give him yet, world wolf def but cant decide on 2nd power yet, theres alot of good ones and some only good if you know your up against a jetbike, deepstrike heavy army and 1 thats great for slowing down inf unless they have fleet or move through cover. my skyclaws and speeder are there do A distract and B destroy anything thats flanking or poses a objective taking threat, in KP missions i may be more cautious with these units as thier easy kills. i decided on 2 preds with 1 lascannon each over 1 with 3 as with the new LOS rules is hard to get all 3 lascannons to bear on 1 target and also means enemy has to split thier fire, and so can i.
so there we go what do you think? id like some feedback from current Space Wolf players as this will be my first drop into them, ive done marines before but I tend to favour ranged combat this will be my first melee heavy(apart from my chaos) list
