Hey just wrote these up using the codex i found online to prepare for my third army. ") Tell me which one you think i better, more fun whatever you want to say.
HQ- Guess Who- 275
Troops-10x WGT w/ 2 CycloneML, 3 combimelta (GRimnar here)-405
10x WGT w/ 2 cyclonML, 4 combimelta, chanfist (three of these squads)-415
Thats all folks now we on tu duh nex one.
HQ- You should know by now- 275
Troops- 5x WGT w/ AC, Chainfist, Combimelta (5 of these squads)-215
4x WGTw/ combimelta- 137
Drop pod- 35
Elites- 2x Dread w/ AC, DCCW, HF- 115
Drop pod- 35
I think they are both cool ideas it is just down to effectivness now also feel free to correct my dreads i just gave the AC because i think it is super cool and i can use ot for tanks and then troops after that. Multimelta might be better for tanks but its useless after that it seems plus i can use both dreads to shoot one tank to make sure something happens. Anyway thanks in advance.
Anyone please help I need opinions
No telepoerting for Space wolves, so its the long slog across the board, or drop pods, and as both lists are pods I would want to be more shooty coming out of the drop pod.
Hey thanks for the reply but I really do t understand what you were saying both lists do not have pods and what do you mean more shooty out of the drop pod?
I think he's misread the first list and thinks it has drop pods. Also, i believe he's referring to the fact that you can't assault when you come out of a drop pod so he'd like to see more shooting in the units that can drop pod so they can do damage on the turn they come down.
To be perfectly honest there's not that much wrong with footslogging WGT's - a guy at my GW plays a footslogging list like this and they work just fine. You'd just struggle a bit on the objective based games because you have to get the WGT into position on an objective whichgenerally means they need to be shooting rather than assaulting. Obviously you have shooty terminator units here, but compare the amount of shots a WGT army gets versus say an army of guard or tau and you'd going to be outgunned. Assault is where you generally want to be. (the use of 'generally is liberal, because every situation is different so there are many exceptions).
But those are more the weaknesses of a WGT army in general, rather than with your list. Decide whether you want to land in their formations, shoot, then assault in your next turn - or whether you want to run across the board at them. That should help you figure out what directiong your list will go in

Yeah sorry, i did misread it, i used to use drop pods with the last 'codex' though now i have to pay for them, I aint so keen, Nothing says big wolf on the battlefield like a land raider though..................!
A pure termy list of wolves is gonna need either landraiders, alot of shooty for leaving the pods, or good walking shoes!
I'd say add some long fangs (5 rl + 1 squad leader and 'spare' wolf guard to soak an extra wound), and either a thunderwolf lord with a load of wolves, and or some sneaky scouts to flank them.
Thanks i think ill remove the dread and add fangs and scouts. Do the long fangs need a drop pod? Also If that terminator in your profile pic is yours is there anyway you can make a tutorial with pics for me? THey look real nice and i can try to return the favor somehow.
Dev? Since when did u like space marines? And he is right you can't assault out of drop pods so you need to shoot more so or ur not gonna soften them enough for when u can assault. I don't know much bout space wolves but my guys have to pack a punch with then or they r useless. The spearhead here won't have enough weight behind it. My blood angels take 2 predators a land raider 10 tactical marines 5 terminators and my hq to draw attention and cause havoc. Then I have 20 assault marines and a dreadnought for mop up. I'll show u the list this weekend.
This is about as shooty as i can make them i added some other goodies though scouts and a combi melta squad to make a tank pis its pants
