List Review

Got a Space Wolf list for you guys to review, using the Wolves Unleashed detachment.

 

Wolf Lord: The Wulfen Stone; Helm of Durfast; runic armour; 2 wolf claws; Thunderwolf mount; 2× Fenrisian Wolf 281

Wolf Guard Battle Leader: runic armour; thunder hammer; storm shield; Thunderwolf mount; 2× Fenrisian Wolf 186

Ulric the Slayer 145

10 Grey Hunters: 2× plasma gun; 10x chainswords 190

• Rhino 35

10 Grey Hunters: 2× meltagun 180

• Rhino 35

15 Blood Claws 180

• Stormwolf: 2 twin-linked multi-meltas 235

4 Thunderwolf Cavalry: 3× chainsword; thunder hammer; 4× storm shield 250

Vindicator: siege shield 130

1,847 points

 

The Lord and wolf guard battle leader roll with the TWC, ulric goes with the blood claws in the stormwolf, giving the claws/flyer a 50% chance of outflank (a flyer can outflank if it is a dedicated transport and the unit has outflank, right?). They also get to come on automatically on turn 2 due to the detachment

 

The rhinos and vindicator roll up and try to give the opponent a few targets to shoot at turn 1 other than the t-wolves.

 

It’s pretty small, but should hit pretty hard. I keep wanting the ulric/blood claw/stormwolf setup to work, have yet to play test it yet.

 

Anyway, wanted to get y’all’s take on it.

 

Thanks,

    Thanks for the list review guys. Yeah, S10 is certainly a weakness, just have to mitigate it the best i can with proper LoS!’s, proper spacing from blasts, and some good 3++ rolls.

    I too have been using the 5 las long fangs and really like them, but didnt have the points to stick them in this list. That is why the vindy was in there, cheap and can do some damage. Really couldn’t find anything i liked better for the points. I may make some room to stick the long fangs in.

    I’ve considered dropping some blood claws and Ulric to add some more shooting, but want to give it a shot a couple times to see how the unit does.

    Thanks again!
