For starters, YOU STOLE MY PIC!!! :P (Na, just joking)

Terminators and Land Raiders are VERY expensive to have in 1500 points, taking well over a third of your army with 6 models! I hope you don't have an Eldar opponent anywhere near you...

Your army overall lacks mobility. With only one Rhino and the LR to transport guys you'll have to footslog across a lot of terrain, leaving you open to enemy fire. SWs cannot take many casualties being so expensive, so I'd definately consider mounting them up. If you do, I suggest arming them with Power Fists so the Grey Hunters would be able to hold their own once they get into close combat. I like the number of troops you have, though, lots of GHs .

I don't see very much AT weapons in there (with the lascannons on the LR being pretty much it!). You'll have a great deal of trouble taking out tanks (even light ones), and I would highly recommend replacing the LR with at least a Predator Annihilator, thereby freeing up point for Rhinos.

skip the long fangs for anti-tank...just settle for the land raiders

and as for the army...well, it looked solid til i paid more attention to the squads. only 1 squad is upgraded...and even then, you haven't done the decent thing of packing it full of fists, instead resorting to the much weaker power weapon. load your squads out with full complements of fists, and at least 1 improved ranged weapon

oh, and give the termies an extra assault cannon

i take it you're not exactly planning on using storm caller to assist you in assault??

i'd re-think the army a bit if i were you...some hints: scouts are good, vennie dreads are good, bloodclaws are good (and cheap). and loading out on powerfists is a major strong point for space wolves

If you want an idea, I'll post a list I used recently.
I won't go into much detail.

Wolf Lord
BP,Frost, RunicCharm, Frag, Meltabombs, Pelt 140

Wolf Priest Healing Potions 413
with 5 Wolf Guard Terminators
2 with Assault Cannons
3 with Power Weapons

Grey Hunter Unit1 226
8 x hunters
PFx1 Meltagun

Blood Claw Unit 2 194
8x claws 2 x PFs

Grey Hunter Unit 3 134
6 x hunters PF, Plasmagun

Predator Ann 153

Ven Dred 163

Speeder 80

Total comes to 1503

I walk the dred in front of the Terminator unit, and backed up by the 6 man Hunter unit.

Units 1 and 2 hit a weak spot backed up with the speeder. Lord will go in with the front Rhino or with the Blood Claws depends on my opponent.

Predator goes anywhere I think it do the most harm to my opponent.
