New 1750 Space Wolves List

Space Wolve Codex CoverOk, so GW is having a 40K tournament. The last weekend in May, June, and July, you bring 1750pts of your favorite GW 40k army. As long as it's a legal main list out of a current codex. I dunno what they mean by that. But anyway, you play one game per weekend and the scores get turned into GW US HQ. The three highest scoring players will receive what GW is saying "an amazing prize." Also the highest scoring individual in each GW store will also receive a prize!

With the move all done and the fact that I unpacked the wolves and have been getting my hobby area in the garage set up, I'm gonna give this a shot!

So first off was sitting down and creating a 1750 point list. This took a lil time shaving off points here and there from what I WANTED to take. After going over some things I finally came up with a list. Let me know what you guys think. Next up will be to paint the list as all my wolves, save the rune priest I painted up in the fall, are all just primed black (landraider crusader and drop pod are still bare plastic.) I figure I have almost 2 months to get them done. Should be able to do it. Will keep you posted as to my progress.

  1. As long as it's a legal main list out of a current codex.
    That's just a common disclaimer to make sure that people aren't trying to enter using out of print rules.

    As to the list? Hrm...
    1. Where does the Rune Priest go? In the Land Raider with no Fire Points and full of guys wanting to assault?
    2. Models with a Thunder Hammer get no bonus attack for a Bolt Pistol. Why not give him a combi-plasma?
    3. A stock Grey Hunter will get the most benefit (in order) from a Wolf Standard, Mark of the Wulfen, and THEN a power weapon/fist. Your build seems odd.
    4. I'd favor having Ragnar's LR mounted unit be Blood Claws and keep the Grey Hunters in the Rhinos/Pods. Yeah, you lose a meltagun but you gain a whole bunch of attacks.
    5. Your Long Fang weapon selection seems a little sporadic. If you're going to mix it up that much, then mix up the weapons more. "Fire Control" will allow you to still split the fire for optimal effect while mixing will give you better control of wound allocation. If you went with the current selections and sizes, I'd arrange them as HBx2, Las, ML and HB, ML, MM.
    5. I *strongly* recommend getting a Multi-Melta and maybe Extra Armour for your Crusader.

    Overall I don't think it is a bad list, just a little sporadic. Cheers and hope this gives you a couple things to think on.
