    I hear they're good at True Grit (like me), but their 13th Company is kickass as Melee.

    That's about all I can give.
    Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!

    In order from your post:
    Yes
    No
    They both have advantages and disadvantages that make them about even. (However 13th company have several edges but thats it)
    Normal wolves over 13th company are more shooty because they have a few more shooty options.
    Yes

    Yes, but it will take some time. It's not expected before 2009.

    Are the SW only good at CC?
    They certainly aren't. Good close range shooting too. In fact, if you're looking for an SM army that charges forward to CC you'd better knock on the Blood Angel door.
    They're the best (non-Chaos) marines at assaulting, SW have more 'refined' ways.

    What's better as CC, SW or 13th Company?
    On model base 13th Company are the best. In fact, on model base they're the very best CC army in existence. Marines are equal to the elites of many armies, the basic 13th Company trooper is as good as the elites of other Marines.
    But they do have smaller armies.

    and shooty?
    Here I'd say regular SW because they simply have more weapons firing and more options besides.
    But that doesn't mean that the 13th Company can't shoot.

    are SW competitive?
    SW are a difficult army to play. But once you've got the hang of it they are competitive.

    Well one of the big differances is that the 13th company are not allowed to take any vehicles, on the other hand they all get scout.

    The other is that the normal Space Wolves are still basically marines, while the 13th company are super veterans. They have been around, literally, for 10,000 years fighting Chaos.

    Also the 13th company is really limited in terms of heavy weapons. All they have are long fangs. While not bad they're fragile and they're all you have in terms of big guns.

    The thing with normal space wolves is they're best if you have some kinda foreward force like blood claw bikers or maybe some grey hunters popping out of rhinos.

    Space wolves i think are quite balanced at shooting and cc, they certainly aren't the best when it comes to cc or shooting, but the ability of the blood claws to gain more attacks on the charge is good, and also the options to take weapons instead of guns might make them seem a bit more cc orientated.

    on the other hand, sw got the long fangs for the shooting and the true grit helps on the grey hunters as well:yes:
