Default Krom Dragongaze's Great Company 1500pt list

Having pilfered Wargamer's Space Wolves codex from him I couldn't resist writing up a list for my second favourite (and second longest played) chapter.

I decided that, given the amazing new battle force and pack boxed sets I would make my army completely from plastics, as well as saving myself money where possible this gives me great scope for individualising the look of my models due to the versatility of the plastic boxed sets. So, with these rough guidelines to follow I set about deciding on the background of my force.

I chose Krom Dragongaze's Great Company as, fluff-wise, it allowed me to take a high number of wolf guard in a standard sized force, however; I didn't want to use any metal models and I didn't wan to have my army lead by one of the twelve wolf lords, thus I decided that my army would be a battle group dispatched by Krom to engage the enemy in a far away star system while he is engaged in another theatre. To this end I decided on a wolf guard battle-leader to head up my force, one of Krom's trusted lieutenants.

Space Wolves 1500pts

[HQ] Wolf Guard Battle-leader - 145pts

- Terminator armour
- Pair of wolf claws
- Saga of the beastslayer
- melta bombs

[Elites] Wolf Guard - 328pts

- 1 wolf guard w/ terminator armour, melta bombs and wolf claw
- 1 wolf guard w/ melta bombs, thunder hammer and storm shield
- 1 wolf guard w/ melta bombs, frost axe and plasma pistol
- 1 wolf guard w/ melta bombs, power weapon and plasma pistol

[Elites] Wolf Scouts - 155pts
- 1 wolf scout w/ melta bombs and power weapon
- 1 wolf scout w/ melta bombs and mark or the wulfen
- 1 wolf scout w/ melta bombs and plasma pistol
- 1 wolf scout w/ melta bombs and melta gun
- 1 wolf scout w/ melta bombs

[Elites] Lone Wolf - 100pts

- Terminator armour, melta bombs, thunder hammer and storm shield

[Troops] Grey Hunters - 200pts
- 1 grey hunter w/ power fist
- 1 grey hunter w/ plasma pistol
- 2 grey hunters w/ plasma guns
- 6 grey hunters

[Troops] Grey Hunters - 140pts

- 1 grey hunter w/ power weapon
- 1 grey hunter w/ plasma pistol
- 1 grey hunter w/ melta gun
- 4 grey hunters

[Troops] Blood Claws - 175pts

- 1 blood claw w/ power weapon

[Heavy Support] Long Fangs - 165pts

- 1 long fang squad leader
- 1 long fang w/ plasma cannon
- 1 long fang w/ lascannon
- 1 long fang w/ multi-melta
- 2 long fangs w/ missile launchers

Total - 1498pts

This whole army uses:
- 1 Space Wolf Battleforce
- 1 Space Wolf Pack box
- 1 Wolf Guard Terminator box
- 1 Devestator box
- 3 Space Marine bikes

The total cost comes up to roughly 168, a damn sight less than the usual 200+ I end up spending on a 1500pt force

[hr]

Feel free to give me your thoughts on this list, it isn't meant as a competetive list by any means, altough I will bring it to GW HQ in Feb!

You gave a wolf scout mark of the wulfen and a power weapon.

It says that mark of the wolfen replaces his normal attack characteristics and that these attacks are not affected by wargear. That basically makes that wolf scout kinda redundant. Just switch the power weapon or mark onto another model.

I'd also switch the power weapon from the long fangs over to the swiftclaws.

Good call on the mark of the wulfen, I'd forgotten about that. You're probably right about the power weapon being switched from the long fangs to swiftclaws.

My initial idea was to use the swiftclaws as a cheap, fast anti-tank unit while I figured the long fangs would be a magnet for enemy assault troops and so the power weapon would give them something to counter being charged. Equipped thusly a long fang squad leader is getting 4 power weapon attacks on a successful leadership test.

Due to the Headstrong rule however the swiftclaws will benefit more from having the power weapon as it will give them an added punch should I move too close to an enemy unit and be forced to charge them.

The list has been altered to reflect these changes.

Your swiftlcaws are actually illegal. You either give the entire pack meltabombs or you don't give any of them melta bombs.

Just give the bombs over to your HQ or something like that.

Fixed, dropped the power weapon to give the other two swiftclaws and my battle leader melta bombs.

As usual looking over other space marine lists and comparing my usual Blood Angels list always makes my list feel...kinda small. I even thought puppies we're more spensive...which some of those things are overall but they seem like they have alot more beat stick power then my stuff.

As a Blood Angels player myself, I know what you mean. We can only hope for the rumoured codex release, instead of the palm-off that was the White Dwarf list.

I posted what I have for a list so far...got indecisive on the last 130 points if you wanna look it over.

I don't know much about the puppies so I can't give any feedback on your list...other then some of it looks unnerving if I don't get the first charge

Hell, thanks to counter attack, it can be pretty unnerving if you do get the charge!

Heh, that only gives a +1 attack. Corbulo and Dante combined is Furious Charge+Preferred Enemy...mmm extra damage and initiative with rerolls on every missed attack, and I decided to add a chapter banner for even more attacks. Course any puppies ,especially those ones in the elites, that don't die would mess stuff up.
