    Good to see another Space Wolves player.

    If ind with space wolves, or any army you need to start with you core units and then build up. Terminators look cool but you can't field an army with only them.

    My advise is this:

    Grey hunters pack 1: 5 marines with bolter and ccw, 2 marines with power weapon and bolter, 1 flamer and ccw plus rhino mounted
    Grey hunters pack 2: 5 marines with bolter and ccw, 2 marines with power weapons and bolter, 1plasma gun and ccw plus rhino mounted
    Grey hunter pack 3: 5 marines with bolter and ccw, 2 marines with power weapons and bolter, 1 melta gun and ccw plus mounted in rhino

    Blood claws pack 1: 8 blood claws with bolt pistol and ccw, 2 BC with power weapons and bolt pistols, 2 BCwith ccw and plasma pistols plus rhino mounted
    Blood claws pack 2: 5 BC with bolt pistol and ccw jumppacks, 2 BC with power weapons and bolt pistols and jumppacks, 1 BC with plasma pistol and jumppack
    Blood claws pack 3: 8 blood claws with bolt pistol and ccw, 2 BC with power weapons and bolt pistols and 2 BC with plasma pistols and ccw rhino mounted

    Wolf guard get 6 wolf guard in power armour and arm them as leaders and asign them to each of the above packs
    Wolf guard in terminator armour. 5 armed with thunder hammer and storm sheildand lightnng claws. 1 assualt cannon, 1 heavy flamer 3 storm bolter and power glove

    Wolf priest with 2 wolves
    Rune priest with 2 wolves

    Wolf lord with four wolves

    Dreadnaught armed with assualt cannon and power fist
    dreadnaught armed with twin linked lascannon and missle laucher

    6 wolf scouts



    This should give you a good selection of models that you can use to sort out any army from 1000ptd to 2000pts. There is enough to give you a varity of army lists

    if you want any more advise please don't hesitate to contact me.

    good list but remember minimum size for grey hunters is 6 and minimum size for blood claws is 8 and bring an exterminator or attack bike
    Veni Vidi Variant
    I came, I saw, I got a different type of Leman Russ.

    The spikey ones go faster.

    Good day to you all.
    Heres some new blood with an opinion.
    1* Never,and i mean never may a sqd of blood claws be smaller or equal at Grey Hunters. -ie the blood claws are upgraded to Grey Hunter as the get more experience in fighting.
    2* Never, if you play with the new assault rules, give your claws plasma pistols, guns or melta, flamers, etc. They have, when vcharged 4 attacks and when they have been shooting you loose 2 of those attacks.
    3* Do i hear the word Exterminator? Well thats something you may not forget to buy. It comes in handy towards every other army.

    All the packs are over the minimum sizes

    GH 1: 8
    GH 2: 8
    GH 3: 8
    BC 1: 12
    BC 2: 8 as this is the maximum size for BC with jet packs
    BC 3:12

    But you are right about the attack bike and exterminator

    because nobody thinks an attack bike with a heavy bolter is a threat.

    if you use long fangs have at least one with missile launcher the can make a real mess out of light armored troops and pose a thret to tanks as well
