Default Space Wolf 2000pt Drop Pod Army

This is my plan for a Drop Pod Space Wolf Army. I am looking for comments input.

148 pts

Rune Priest - Storm Bolter, Wolftooth Necklace, Wolftail Talesman
118 pts

Rune Priest - Plasma Pistol, Wolftooth Necklace, Wolftail Talesman
130 pts

Wolf Priest - Wolftooth Necklace, Wolftail Talesman
115 pts

Elites
Wolf Guard - 7 models, 5 Storm Bolters, 1 Twin Wolf Claws, 2 Plasma Pistols, 5 Power Weapons, 2 Powerfists, Drop Pod (Accompanied by Battle Leader)
316 pts

Dreadnought - Twin-Linked Autocannon, Drop Pod
150 pts

Wolf Scouts - 10 Models, Melta Bombs
200 pts

Troops
Grey Hunters - 9 models, 7 Bolters, Plasma Gun, Plasma Pistol, Power Weapon, Drop Pod w/Deathwind ML (Accompanied by Rune Priest)
230 pts

Blood Claws - 9 models, Flamer, Power Weapon, Drop Pod w/Deathwind ML (Accompanied by Rune Priest)
205 pts

Blood Claws - 9 models, Flamer, Power Weapon, Drop Pod w/Deathwind ML (Accompanied by Wolf Priest)

Heavy Support

I am considering replacing the Wolf Scouts with a 2nd Dreadnought in a drop pod with a heavy weapon.

Welcom to TO and Welcome to the Space Wolves.

So here we go, on the comments.
You really don't have enough Anti-tank and you are better off with odd number of pods.
You have too many HQs for 2K. I would drop to 2. I have 3 HQs in my 2.5K army list but I still think that's too many.
Your LFs start off in a DP, so you lose 1 turn of shootin right there.
Power weapons are okay but Powerfists are better.

I can recommend something if you like

Thanks for your input... I was worried about the anti-tank
The idea of having a wholly Drop Pod army was a bit of a novelty to be honest, and I may have to rethink it.
As for the powerfists I was a bit worried about having to wait to attack, especially without termie armour.
