So first off I know 3 troops is hard to manage in 2500, I would have ideally had 4 to 5. However, as the look suggests, my thunder wolves will be the focus. Which means my termie unit, and my troops should have pretty decent survivability. The idea is my rune priest will jump in the Redeemer with the wolf guard and screen the Tunderwolves. The Iron priest's and a unit of thunder wolves join up take one flank the other take another creating probably the most vicious assault unit in the game. The Lord joins 1 of the unit's probably targeting the deadliest unit I can find. Vindicator's should be a fairly low priority in this list, along with the typhoon, which transport hunts, and tank hunts. Thing's I'm not sold on... not having at least 4 troop choices in this size. could drop the Lord and pick up a 4th greyhunter squad. Ideally would like to fit in another speeder, makes it a bigger target, but much more effective. None the less this is a list i feel confident about, so as always I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I think this list needs a little more focus. I can see why you would want to focus on your TWC and you definitely need some GH's for troops, but I really don't see the need for the WG unit in LRR nor the LS Typhoon. Also, the vindies are a so-so choice in this army. Is this a list limited by the models you actually have? Or will you be building your models after you finalize on the list?
Let's just assume for now that your actual inventory of models is not a factor. Then you should start off you army with the TWC as the foundation and build from there. TWC are fast, so you'd want units that can complement its speed. I like the Iron Priest units and the drop pods are nice as it will tie up the enemy and give your TWC time to get close. However, the problem here is you are sacrificing your scoring units which would suck in an objectives-based mission. Simple solution? Either exchange the Iron Priests for podding dreads or get more grey hunters (either in pods or rhinos).
I don't think vindies complement an army with drop pods. You risk hitting your own units in such an army. Drop the vindies for more grey hunters or podding dreads.
