    2000 Space Wolves List - The Plasma Howl

    Hey

    Greetings again. I have just written up a new Space Wolves list, totalling exactly 2000. My main focus here is Plasma spam, and the ability to take the pain of certain valuable units, whilst still keeping supressing fire down, and committing the enemy, before my hard hitting units come up from behind and beat whatever there is that needs beating. Let me know what you think. As always, critique, feedback and criticism is welcome, but don't be too brazen and bold!

    Again, I thank those of you that will take the time to have a look over my list, and hopefully you can help me in making an awesome list. If you ever make a list of an army that I know, then I will be sure to return the favour.

    Good Hunting.

    I like the list. It is good to see a Plasma spam rather than the typical Melta spam.

    Your Wolf Lord looks fine, mean in combat and a nice 4+ invul. Your Rune priest however may need some tweeking. Taking Master of the Runes with Lightning and Jaws is an odd combination. Lightning is a shooting attack that works well against enemy transports and low save models. Jaws has limited range and must target the same thing you shot at with lightning, meaning you are forced to use lightning on an enemy squad that is not only within 24", but a squad that won't really take a hurt from Jaws.

    Your Packs look good, the only thing I don't like is the Fist on a normal Grey Hunter. 40 points for a guy who has 1 attack after the first round of combat isn't worth it. I would drop the guy from that squad, and add a Wolf Guard with a fist for 38 points. It's cheaper, and you will have a 2 attacks after being stuck in, and 3 on the charge instead of a Grey Hunter's 2.

    I like the Lone Wolves set. He should be able to bring the pain. Your Terminators are in a good set up for "Red shirting" wounds.

    Odd set up I think for Long Fangs. A Lascannon and a Plasma Cannon don't really go together. I know you plan on spliting fire, but then why give the Pack Leader a Plasma Pistol? If he shoots it then you can't split fire, although I doubt he will ever be in range to use it.

    All in all a creative list. I do like it alot, the only problem you will see is trying to take down Armor 14. 4 Lascannons and a Chain Fist isn't going to cut it.

    I agree with Wolf Guard's assessment. Just a couple of things I'd like to point out.

    While MoR let's you use 2 psychic powers, you can only ever use 1 shooting attack, psychic or otherwise. Thus, it's either Jaws or LL, but not both. What MoR is meant for is a psychic shooting attack and either Tempest's Wrath or Stormcaller.

    I'd swap the Pfists for MotW or power weapons. Give each of your grey hunter squad wolf standards. If you need a Pfist, have a wolf guard join the unit. Then you can also give him a combi-plasma.

    Will you be walking them? In that case, I'd recommend a CML over the assault cannon. But a walking wolf guard unit is just asking to get shot to heck. Honestly, I'd get rid of this slow, unprotected unit. They only work when they're in land raiders or if there's multiple units of them (preferably in drop pods).

    An odd configuration. Normally the strength of the long fangs lies in mixing valuable heavy weapons with cheap, ablative ones. Nothing ablative about your current configuration. Oh, and drop the plasma pistols. Not needed. I'd go something like this (assuming you have the models):

    Long Fangs ( x5 ) 125
    Plasma Cannon ( x2 )
    Heavy Bolter ( x2 )

    Long Fangs ( x4 ) 120
    Lascannon ( x2 )
    Missile Launcher ( x1 )

    Hey

    Alright, I have taken all of your insightful advice into account, and have therefore tweaked my list a little. Again, please tell me what you think, and keep in mind that the list revolves around the use of Plasma Weapons, and so I was planning on keeping them.
