I tougth about this at my hockey practice last nite since space wolves gray hunters have true grit, that would mean move the rhino, shoot twice and wait to get assaulted. Plus since they have the option of gettting a wolfguard leader. So in my opinion they squad should be some thing like this 9xgh+2pw+(flamer, melt or plasma)+wolfguard pfist, pistoland possibly wolf pelt and wolf tooth necklace, the rhino exta armour, smoke. This is a maxout squad and is pretty expensive:cry: . just wanted to know ur comments on this stratagie. This may also work if u buy the trait trust your battle brother is im not mistaken but less effectively in my opinion.
The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.
Killing for peace is like screwing for virginity.
Exceptions prove the rule, and destroy the battle plan.
One enemy soldier is never enough, but two is entirely too many.
Rhinos are bad with or without True Grit.
Certainly you can unleash hell at 12", but you'll never get there. You'll be exploded, pinned and then Assaulted or Shot.
A Drop Pod costs essentialy half that of a Rhino, cannot be blown up to entangle you, guarantees first shot and puts you in the middle of thier army, not the edge towards you.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
I don't quite agree with Silver Wings. Drop pods work well, I agree. But I haven't found that Rhino's don't work at all.
If you're careful, utilise cover and make sure your foe has a lot to shoot at it can certainly work. In tournament environment it will be very hard, but especially in friendly play it is a viable tactic.
For extra cover you should consider using a Rune Priest as HQ with his Storm Caller psychic power.
For providing a lot of targets ideas are to take as as many Rhino's as possible, one or two tanks. Using a Ven Dread as HQ would help too as he's yet another target for your foe's anti-armour firepower.
As for load-out I wouldn't use maxed out packs: they're too expensive. Your idea would cost a total of more than 300 pts. If you make the units cheaper you'll be able to get more models on the board. More models is almost always better. Also, if you then lose a unit you'll lose less.
I suggest the following load-out:
Grey Hunter pack (264)
10 GH w/ 9 bolters, plasmagun, powerfist
Rhino w/ extra armour, smoke
