The Prodigal Son

After a few weeks off and a weekend playing Orks, I'm returning to the Space Wolves tonight. I'm playing against Dave, who I met at the Doubles and who happens to live in the same town as me! I've arranged to give him a lift and a game at 1500 points so I need to pull together a list...

After all those 2+ saves at the weekend, I'd quite like to take some Terminators tonight. Well, let's start with a core and expand from there:

Rune Priest, Chooser of the Slain, Living Lightning, Murderous Hurricane

3 Wolf Guard, 3 Combi-Meltas, 3 Power Fists

8 Grey Hunters, Mark of the Wulfen, Meltagun, Wolf Standard, Rhino
8 Grey Hunters, Mark of the Wulfen, Meltagun, Wolf Standard, Rhino

Land Speeder, Heavy Flamer, Multimelta

6 Long Fangs, 4 Rocket Launchers, Lascannon
6 Long Fangs, 4 Rocket Launchers, Lascannon

That comes to 1244. Since 5 Terminators with a Cyclone Missile Launcher comes to 200, this looks pretty good. I want to take 5 so that I have the option of splitting off the CML to go with a Long Fang pack while still leaving a reasonably effective unit. Let's give these guys a bit of bling in the form of a Wolf Claw, a Power Fist and a Chainfist to give them a bit of oompf in combat. That leaves me with 26 points to spend so lets deck out the Rune Priest in Tactical Dreadnought Armour as well. This gives me the option of taking a 6 man Terminator squad which gives a pretty solid centre to my army. Let's look at that list in full:

Rune Priest, Terminator Armour, Chooser of the Slain, Living Lightning, Murderous Hurricane

9 Wolf Guard, 3 Power Fists, 3 Combi-Meltas, 5 Terminator Armour, Cyclone Missile Launcher, Power Fist, Chainfist, Wolf Claw


8 Grey Hunters, Mark of the Wulfen, Meltagun, Wolf Standard, Rhino

Ideally, I'd go 5 Rockets in the Fangs and take some Comi-weapons on the Terminators but I don't have the models. It's also not very "Wolfy" as it doesn't include any of the unique Space Wolf units. It looks like a reasonable list though so let's see how it goes...
