Help me fellow Wolf Born
« on: May 08, 2016, 11:33:48 PM »
Greetings,

I have recently come into a MASSIVE Space Wolves collection. A deal that would literally cost me more NOT to buy it, and since I was already thinking about starting up a wolf company I thought what the heck.

Anyway, I am totally a green horn with playing any imperial type army (I have played DE, E, Harlies for the better part of a decade). I have fought against countless, but I have never commanded an imperial force.

What I need from you guys:

I need you guys to throw up 500 point lists and or wombo combo ideas for me to try out, my next tournament is in late fall so I have some time to play the army, and test things out.

So please start throwing up ideas here.

Side note: I do not know the full scape of what i will be getting but from the sounds of things its: every HQ mounted and unmounted if applicable, 5 drop pods, a smattering of rhino/Rbacks, fist fulls of long fangs, 3-4 full squads of T-wolves, 3 of the flyers, 4 dreds including 2 character dreds, and a metric ton of grey hunters, scouts, blood claws.

Basically at least one of everything and a bunch of terminators, T-wolves, regular wolves, and dreds

I find small lists hard to build with wolves as most of our best units are pretty expensive. In my (limited) experience, Wulfen and Thunderwolves pack the biggest punch so I usually try to include at least a unit in each of my lists.

At 500pts I would expect Wulfen to be the best bet because they can provide buffs to the rest of the army. So I would probably run something like this at 500pts:

HQ
Rune priest lvl2 running biomancy

Troops
2x 5 man grey hunter squads with CC weapons

Elites
5 man Wulfen squad
- pack leader
- dual frost claws
- great axe + grenade launcher
- 2x thunderhammer/storm shield

You could try swapping the grey hunters for bloodclaws but I think you really need more mass for them which won't fit at this level.

I've played a 400p version of this List:

"Deathpack" (500pts)

Grey Hunters (140pts)
- Drop Pod
Storm Bolter
- 4x Grey Hunter
4x Bolt Pistol, 3x Bolter, Plasma Gun
- Wolf Guard Pack Leader
Chainsword, Combi Plasma

Thunderwolf Cavalry (165pts)
- Thunderwolf Cavalry
Chainsword, Storm Shield
- Thunderwolf Cavalry
Chainsword, Storm Shield
- Thunderwolf Cavalry Pack Leader
Chainsword, Storm Shield

Wolf Lord (195pts)
Thunderwolf
Power Armour
Power Fist, Storm Shield

Another Idea I've recently experimented with, was inspired by Fritz's scalable berserkers:

"Combined Arms Detachement" (500pts)


Rune Priest (60pts)
Psyker Mastery Level 1, Rune Axe
Power Armour
Bolt Pistol

Dreadnought (110pts)
Dreadnought, Missile Launcher, Twin-Linked Autocannon

Grey Hunters (165pts)
- 5x Grey Hunter
5x Bolt Pistol, 4x Bolter, Plasma Gun
- Razorback
Dozer Blade, Lascannon & Twin-linked Plasma Gun

Grey Hunters (165pts)
- 5x Grey Hunter
5x Bolt Pistol, 4x Bolter, Plasma Gun
- Razorback
Dozer Blade, Lascannon & Twin-linked Plasma Gun


right now the only change I would try out with the last list is, to swap the dreadnought for a landspeeder with multi melta and missle launcher. So I can free the points for a wolf guard packleader with combi plasma and a melta bomb.
