Default Space Wolves 1'500pts WYSIWYG

Hey guys I invested in a few SW's and got myself to 1'500pts in a week, :P

Anyway here's what I have

Please note: I am new to SM and SW so I might of made some big mistakes.

HQ
Wolf Lord w/ Frost blade,Plasma pistol,Runic armour and Belt of Russ(will ride in Land Raider): 185
Elite
5 Scouts w/ CCW and Bolt Pistols: 75

5 Wolf Guards in Terminator Armour
2 w/ Twin Wolf Claws
2 w/ Thunder Hammers and Storm Shields
1 w/ Wolf Claw and Heavy Flamer
Dedicated Drop Pod w/ Deathwind Missile Launcher: 325
Troops
10 Grey Hunters w/ Bolt Pistols and CCW, 1 Plasma Pistol, 1 Power Fist, 2 Plasma Guns and 1 Wolf Standard(will ride in Land Raider): 210

9 Grey Hunters w/ Bolt Pistols and CCW, 1 Plasma Pistol, 1 Power Fist and 1 Wolf Standard(will ride in Land Raider): 185
Heavy Support
Land Raider w/ Stormbolter: 260
Land Raider w/ Stormbolter: 260

Total: 1'500

The plan is let the Land Raiders shoot out what threatens them and the Scouts and Terminators will either annoy or pick out what is threatening.

For objectives the units can sit inside the land raiders and the land raider sits on the objectives.

You guys may disagree with my list but I like it, any questions or suggestions will be appreciated though.

Why stormbolters on the land raiders? I would just get 1 MM.

Why? to help overcome the problem of horde armies, an extra 2 shots can make all the difference, :P and it's defensive so can fire it without using a weapon shot (if i'm correct anyway, don't have rulebook handy.)

Multi-melta? why? you have 4 TW lascannons, more then enough to take out tanks for me.

If you ever really have that much of a problem with horde that you desperatly need 2 shots you should just switch over to a crusader. Against AV 13-14 the TL assault cannon has a better chance of penning it. I really find lascannons over rated unless you are using them on a transport. Even then melta or just missle launchers are better at that.

Well I have now made a new list which is Mechanized, but I find will be very effective.

HQ
Wolf Lord w/ Frost Blade,Bolt Pistol, Runic Armour and Belt of Russ: 170

Elites
Dreadnought w/ Assault Cannon and DCCW with built-in Heavy Flamer
Dedicated Drop Pod w/ Deathwind Missile Launcher: 165

Troops
10-man Grey Hunters w/ Power fist, 2 Plasma guns, Plasma pistol and Wolf Standard
Dedicated Rhino w/Extra armour and Hunter-Killer Missile: 270
10-man Grey Hunters w/ Power fist, 2 Plasma guns, Plasma pistol and Wolf Standard
Dedicated Rhino w/Extra armour and Hunter-Killer Missile: 270
9-man Grey Hunters w/ Power fist, Plasma Pistol and Wolf Standard (will go in land raider): 185

Heavy Support
Land Raider w/ Multi-Melta: 260
Whirlwind: 85
Whirlwind: 85

Total: 1'500

I think you guys know the plan, push forward and cause havoc on the way, whilst dreadnought will smash up anything that gets in its way.

Comments again will be appreciated.

Again a multi melta on your land raider would be a good upgrade, I think it cost 10 points can't remember. If you come up against another land raider the chances of you killing it are very small. You will hit it with your lascannons but you will need a 5 just to glance and a 6 to pen. Not the best odds with a multi melta you can move 12 and still blast it and have a much better chance of killing it.

I'd also recommend trying saga of the bear a couple times. I used to use warrior born but its not as good as chances are you will just slaughter a unit that the wolf lord is attacking and then all of the extra attacks are wasted. Having him ignore instand death works much better especially with just a 4+ invul. Even with a 3+ invul I still like my lord to have eternal warrior.

Yes the problem is I don't have any multi-meltas, i'll see what I can do with the dreadnought Multi-Melta though

Bear I can't remember points cost but I think that and belt of russ will cost too much, either that or have 5pts over...

Any help here?
???

Just the belt of russ on its own will take you to 1500pts exactly

Doesn't the land raider come with a MM to put on a pintle mount? It has been awhile since I bought mine but I thought it came with that.
