Terminator Armor or Power Armor?

Horde: Jaws of the World Wolf/Thunderclap
Mechanized: Jaws of the World Wolf/Living Lightning
Jetbike/Skimmer/Jump Pack Heavy: Living Lightning/Tempest's Wrath
Normal/Gun Line: Jaws of the World Wolf/Living Lightning

Considering you're most likely playing me and Rosetta, I'd suggest taking Jaws of the World Wolf and Living Lightning when you're playing me, and then Living Lightning and Tempest's Wrath against Rosetta Stoned. Since powers don't cost any points, you can simply switch them out when you're playing the specific armies! Nifty, eh?

You need more Troop choices.

Everything else looks fine to me. Then again I play Wolfwing so what do I know? Post up a more thorough list of what you have and I'll be able to make you a list using the new codex .

Also, this should be in the Army List section. I'll flag a mod for you.

I think it is a crime against the Emperor to not get an Oath for your Wolf Lord.

As he said, he doesn't have the codex so he probably has no idea what an Oath even is...

There's more than one oath. Suffice it to say, they're all useful in their own way (more or less, lol; some definitely stand out more than others). You really do need to get a hold of the codex.

Essentially, if you take an Oath, you have an objective that you have to complete before the end of the game. You get bonuses for choosing this Oath (i.e. preferred enemy) but if you fail to complete the Oath, then you have to take a penalty. Its a gamble, essentially.

so does an oath work just for the wolf lord or the whole army?

A saga just affects the Wolf Lord. For example, one saga gives him eternal warrior.

The negative effect of the saga's only apply if you want them to. They just say you aren't supposed to do certain things (never fall back, must kill certain number of enemies etc) but they don't list any consequences it's more if you want to have a consequence you can but they are purely fluff.

The bonus you get for a saga on the other hand can be incredible! Basically only your HQs can get sagas. Off the top of my head the only other things that can get them are venerable dreads can get 1 and iron priests can also get one.
