Im playing about with the idea of having an entire army of wolves, as giving the Von Carstein Thrall wolf form will make him a wolf aswell.
Carstein Thrall @ 132
Ring Of The Night
12 Dire Wolves
12 Dire Woves
12 Dire Woves
Do you think this army would last, or get spanked by most things?
I was going to have the thrall look like a wolf as much as i can, by usin lots of green stuff.

Vampire Counts - 3500 Points
Orcs And Goblins - 2000 Points
Well the enemy could just kill the unit with your general in it and POOF there goes your entire army...
Wolves are good for flanking and annoying the enemy but they are sooo weak... and fast.
You could have a big army with very fast moving units so you could surround each unit kindof easily but it would take alot of wolves to kill one unit, also if the enemy won't break and then youre wolves get flanked/rearcharged, i think they'll be doomed as well. That and the enemy just assassinating your vampire and almost auto-winning...
In a wolf army you would have to rely very heavily on vampires with wolf form. I've done the 2-3 vampires with wolves a couple of times, but kept a solid centre force to give the opponent something else to worry about. Then you flank with wolves and vampires, and that can be devastating. The wolves themselves aren't very powerful, so going all wolves IMO wouldn't work that often. Anything tough enough to take the charge is just going to hack them up, so they really need character and/or rank and file support.
So yeah, mostly I agree with MisterDutch.
Well I am not sure about in Warbands, or border princes for that atter, but as a standard 500pt list, this is illegal. A VC army must have a wizard/mage of some sort in it's ranks, and your army doesn't
As a side not, the best configuration for a wolf form thrall is:
Von Carstien Thrall: 134pts
The Flayed Hauberk
Hope this helps :ninja:
