So I wanted a little more assault in my SM and have started using the space wolf codex more and more. But one thing that I'm never sure about is how to deck out my HQ. I've been putting together some low point lists (750 and 1k) and I'll generally toss a rune priest in there, but I kinda wanted a wolf guard battle leader (or wolf lord, though I wanted to save the points) as a second HQ.So far I tend to give him a frost sword and put him with a pack of grey hunters, but is there something else I should be giving him? Does he need an invulnerable save, for example? My question is: in low point games, how do you equip your wolf guard battle leaders? Or do you prefer wolf lords?
In 1000 pt games I run a WGBL and a Rune Priest, at 750 I run just a Rune Priest, 2 HQ's are overboard in 750 points.
Personally I like to deck my Battle Leader out as such: Power Weapon, Runic Armour: 105 points total. He's rather durible if stuck in with a Grey Hunter squad can cause some pain. Sometimes I will also give him a Combi-Melta.
At higher points 1500+ I tend to use a Lord with Runic Armour, Storm Shield, Power Weapon for 170 points, and occasionally I'll give him either Saga of the Bear or Warrior Born.

Personally, I don't think saga of the bear is worth the cost, but runic armor is a must have. Wolf Lords are definitely better than Wolf Guard Battle Leaders. I'd only use a battle leader in a low point game. The only saga I like is beast slayer.
So far my favorite HQs are (in no particular order):
Wolf Lord w/runic armor and powerfist
Wolf Lord w/runic armor and frost axe
Wolf Lord w/runic armor, pair of wolf claws, and saga of the beast slayer
Rune Priests w/jaws of the world wolf, and murderous hurricane
