Hey everyone, I don't normally post in this forum but I'm starting Space Wolves and I worked something out that, if legal, could result in the most killer assault squad ever.
I was contemplating the Land Raider Crusader, with its huge transport capacity, and how it could hold a full Blood Claw squad plus a pack leader. The Wolves codex suggests that they're able to take any heavy support a normal army can, aside from devastators since they've got their own version, so I assumed that for the listed cost in 5th edition I could take a crusader.
Anyway, I got to equipping my pack leader. I recently made a standard bearer that I'm really proud of, though I didn't intend to use it on the table, and I saw him and got to thinking about trying to incorporate a banner. I looked up the rules in the Wolves codex and it said refer to the Marines codex. You all know what the current Chapter Banner does; would this result in a pack of Blood Claws getting five attacks each on the charge, and 75 for the whole squad? Is there any gaping flaw in this that anyone can point out for me?
EDIT: Never mind, I found two problems with this. Banner bearer is only allowed in 2K or greater armies, and the banner bearer has to be in the command squad.
To salvage the thread I stupidly made, everyone post loadouts for your personal favorite close combat squads.

PREEEPARE FOR ULTIMATE FLAAAAVOR!
If you ever play a 2000+ point game put a banner in your wolf guard bodyguard squad and stick ragnar in the unit. 2 attacks base+1 for extra weapon+ 2 for charge+ 1 for banner. 6 each from 10 guys with ragnar himself getting 8.
Wolf scouts with melta weapons just about sums it up.
