Email in: 40k 1.5k space wolves army list


I've been lurking the 40k world for the better part of a year, mostly reading the novels, playing the pc games etcetera. Over the last couple of months I managed to get into the tabletop via borrowing armies and playing casually. After a bit of putzing about with Dark Eldar, Chaos, Space Marines, Imperial and the like, I've settled on Space wolves as in investment. The store I play at generally has 1.5k to 1750 point losts. Some members in the chatbox on your page proved helpful in refining this list, but I don't think it's quite there yet. The list has already had a few revisions, but at it's core it's still the first army list I've thrown together. What can I do to tighten it and focus it a bit more?

3x Thunder wolf cavalry w/power weapons


The core of the list is there but a few changes will make it better. The Razorbacks/Rhinos do not need extra armor or storm bolters - they are just useless points there so dropping those and getting another transport for the Long Fangs is a good idea (add another LasPlas). Dropping the EA from the Dreadnought is also a good idea though less necessary. I'd be looking as well to try and get more vehicle hulls in by downgrading some of the vehicles you have - i.e. turn the two LasPlas RBacks for your Grey Hunters into Rhinos - this gives you the top-hatch capacity and gives the Grey Hunter units more flexibility. With the points saved there, grab another LasPlas for your other Long Fang unit.

Otherwise everything looks pretty good - I'd be trying to get a few more upgrades into the larger Grey Hunter squad - i.e. Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen and the TWC can only have one power weapon - I'd change this to Wolf Claw (for re-rolls) or Thunder Hammer (for S10) and a stormshield (ornothing if you need the points).
