Default 1500 space wolves

I played one game with this list so far against my friends tau. I killed all his fire warriors after turn 3 and then he managed to kill off the last of my troops ending in a dreaw (finally tally was turn 6 with him having one hammer head on end of the bored and me having 2 wolfguard termies with ragnar in a building on the other end of the board.) Ragnar was in the land raider with 5 wolfguard (the 4 with terminator armour and 1 with out)

I had a wolf guard with the blood claws and 1 with the scouts. I learned that blood claws can't take marl of the wulfen(I don't get why not) so I switched that out and gave it to my scouts. Any board edge on a 3+ is just amazing.

Ragnar is a beast. In one assault he ended up with 12 attacks on his own. I don't even know what to say about that because it is just silly. I might do a battle report later on about it because I remember fairly well what happened and know my friends list better then I know my own at the moment

Yes, they can have mixed armor. When you buy the unit, you buy terminator armor for each individual member. It is more expensive this way in terms of points but very flexable. There are a few restrictions when it comes to Wolf Guard leading Scouts.

I love this codex, its the best thing since sliced bread and Light sabers

If I was you I would defiantly add more HQ choices as not only can you take 4 but you then have the ability to bolster your lines with battle leaders (I plan to have 2-3 in my army). Have you considered add Njal as from reading the codex I think that he will be really useful for a multi purpose role (with him being able to use all the power and 2 per turn).

Default Re: 1500 space wolves

I actually would probably get rid of Ragnar and use a normal wolf lord. I don't like the special characters for the most part because they are so bloody expensive. They all add some neat gimmicks for the army but nothing that I can see as being game breaking. Other then maybe taking Logan and drop poding a bunch of multimeltas on a land raider based army.

I only have 2 units of troops in this army and taking more HQs just makes my model count go down. I would have won except I didn't have enough troops. Even dropping Ragnar for a minimum sized squad of greyhunters would have won me that game. All Ragnar did was kill things before my wolfguard termies got a chance to swing.

Now saying that in higher point games I would definitely consider njall and some other non special character HQs (only in 3k+ points would I take 2 ore more special characters) I'll be doing up and 1850 and 2000 and possibly 3000+ lists soon.
