    Wolf Guard ?

    I have searched through the Space Wolves codex for this and can't find it. Any help is appreciated!

    Can you take a WG Pack Leader with a Long Fangs Squad? I know they have their own Pack Leader, but the only rules regarding WGPL's is that they can't lead BC's or Scouts if they're in Term Armor. Otherwise I can find no mention if they can or can't lead LF's. The reason I ask is that I would like to have a WGPL in Term Armor with a Cyclone Missle Launcher lead my LF's. I figure the extra firepower would be nice to have, plus if I need to move them I can do so without losing all shooting, and if they are charged or about to be charged, the WGPL will help them out in combat.

    So, any thoughts on the question? And I guess while I'm at it, any thoughts on my idea?

    Thanks

    rules say "wolf guard may be added to any pack"

    as it is a Long Fang Pack

    it is a Pack, and thus can recieve wolf guard

    You can attach a Wolf Guard to a a Long Fang pack, but you can't give him a Cyclone Missile launcher. You can give him Termie armour but the CML is only an option for the bodyguard unit, not a leader. A leader can only choose options available from the armoury.

    All WG can choose stuff from the armoury so don't worry about that.

    If you look at the wolf guard entry in the SW codex you will see two entries and two point costs. If you want pack leaders, you use the first entry and the first point cost. The second is for a bodyguard. If you look in the different options for each entry you will see that there are no heavy weapons options listed for the pack leader. Because of that you are limited to the weapons listed in the Armoury.

    Unfortunately Assault Cannons, Heavy Flamers, CML's are limited to the bodyguard squads that can be assigned to the Rune Priest, Wolf Lord, and Wolf Priest. This can be quite unfortunate. As a result there isnt all that much reason to attach a WGPL to the Long Fangs. They're best used in closer range shooting and assaults, making it a 35 points that are much better spent elsewhere. Look at putting one in with your Blood Claws.....it would let you restrain them, keeping them from haring off at all enemies, and add 4 power weapon attacks to the charge (2 base, 1 for BP/PowerWeapon, 1 on charge).

    The WG also has a better WS than the Blood Claws.
