My fellow wolves and other brother astartes, for list building I like character and some degree of flare, not the sometimes bland result of min-max-ing a list however that won't stop me going for the more competitive options. Therefore consulting the experianced brothers of the librarium for recommendations is my next step.
At present the list stands at:
Rune Priest - necklace, beastslayer & chooser = 130
Ulf - powerfist & combi-melta = 43
Haegar - thunderhammer & combi-melta = 48
Oleg - stormbolter and powerfist = 41
Scouts (5x) - melta, melta bomb & power weapon = 105
Grey Hunters - 1 (Ulf's pack) = 200
9 x hunter w/ melta, rhino & powerfist
Grey Hunters - 2 (Haegar's Pack and joined by Rune Priest) = 185
8 x hunter w/ melta, rhino & powerfist
Grey Hunters -3 (Oleg) = 200
9 x hunter w/ melta, rhino & powerfist
2 Landspeeder typhoons (2 x 90 = 180)
Whirlwind = 85
Longfang pack - 2 missile launchers & 2 lascannons = 145
Longfang pack - 4 heavy bolters & razorback (heavy bolters) = 135
Total = 1497 me thinks
The questions i'm really asking are -
1) the whirlwind - worth it's place?
2) the heavy bolters? get rid of them along with the whirlwind and then add in an objective holding grey hunter squad in a razorback with lascannons?
3) Viability of scouts?
4) do sniper scouts have a place in the list? or an extra rune priest maybe?
(the things i'm definately pleased with at the moment are the speeders, the troops, wolfguard, las/missile longfangs and the runepriest - they may not be at their most competitive e.g. no combi for oleg, but i like the look and feel of them along with the painting options)
to any of you who decide to comment - it's much appreciated

Pretty reliant on 3 Rhinos.
I'd either shave points for more armor, Wolf Scouts and Whirlwinds aren't all that hot. TWC are always a good pick to run behind your Rhinos and help out.

thanks for the reply, much appreciated - what sort of armour would you suggest? vindiy? extra razorback with GH inside? and how would you model the TWC?
Drop pods? If your going for drop pods, then i would take no more or less than 5. As a pod assualt of 3 pods works best. I would definately go with 2 rune priests. One with ll and mh for your objective sitting unit and one with jotww and mh for your offensive force. Both will cover your anti-psyker through out your army too. I also think that you need more lascannons for anti-tank and heavy bolters are anti-infantry ( althought they can be anti-mc if your desperate ) but i would suggest having 2-3 missle launchers and 2x lascannons for each long fangs. You may also want to consider wolf guard bodyguards for your long fangs so that they cabn take the first hit and you can lose him isnetad of your sergeant or one of your heavy weapon guys.
ok then so we ditch the whirlwind, and the land speeders and with the leftover change we give the HB long fangs the same kit as the other long fangs. We also give them basic wolf guard for a wound. We also add in a 5 man GH squad with a heavy bolter razorback joined by the new rune priest oleg also gets a prezzie in the form of a melta bomb..... love the look of it with the fact that the scouts remain for spice and rubbing out back end tanks and lootas however with the HBs (typhoons and longfangs) gone and the whirlwind will the list be somewhat horde wulnerable?
thanks to both of you for the advice it's great and makes a great amount of sense... but i do like the scouts
also any word on how to get a couple of missile launchers?
