hey, i have a big battle comming up and im not sure how i should go with building an army list. I can use two force organization charts and i need 2500 pts. now i know a lot of this is preference but i would just like some help. Im not sure if i should go with a straight forward space wolf army like... the ven dread, wolf lord, rune priest, and wolf guard leader, 2 grey hunters and 2 blood claws, some bc bikes, long fangs, and some other stuff. OR do you think i should go with a build on something like all grey hunters or a couple dev sqauds, possibly 2 scout sqauds, stuff like that. Sorry its hard to explain but im not sure of what i should do? i'll have an army list soon of both possibilities
Personally I would take the two Venerable Dreads for sure.
Secondly, I think I would take a lot of scouts because they have some AWESOME abilities. If you know what type(s) of forces you will be coming up against, Scouts are great as cheap assault units that can infiltrate and really tie up your opponents, or as rear-armor hunting zombies that come at your enemies tanks from his own table edge.
Other than that, I like to go troop heavy and take lots of blood claws. You have enough poinst you could make use of drop pods to get in close where it will hurt them most. Dreads and Bloodclaws landing all over and Speeders deepstriking are bad news and will ruin anyones birthday.

Since its 2500, you will be taking 3 HQs by wolf rules I think. I'm not sure how it works with multiple forces, but I'm assuming its 3 HQs regardless. 2 Venerable Dreads is a good way to go. I would bring a Rune Priest too, his Storm Caller power is great.
Drop Pods are a good idea, but don't depend on them. They come in at unpredictable times and can put you in a tight spot. Some Long Fangs are a good idea, and a Tank might be helpful as well, I would suggest a Predator. There are a million ways to build your force, just make sure to cover everyone's weaknesses. If you drop pod assualt, make sure you load up some Grey Hunters or Blood Claws in a Rhino or Land Raider to speed up and support them afterwards.

Yeah, I think Ebon Hand's advice was sound (except it's 4 HQ not 3).
Try looking through some of the Army Lists and you'll get some good ideas about what kind of stuff people take.
My advice, use the Wolves as the Wolves are designed to be used. That is how they are best. Close assault, troop heavy, with some long range support. Don't go overboard on tooling up the HQ's and don't overdo the need for Wolfguard.
Keep it simple, keep it Wolfy.
