Default Whos the best

I play Space Wolfs and I have a choice of 4 diff. things to get, 8 termies, 8 scouts, Long Fangs or a Vindicator. I will mostly be playing against Orks, Eldar and other Space marine chapters. Which would be the best choice.
Here's my list.
HQ

wolf guard battleleader 60pts

Troops

10 grey hunters, one with flamer one with power fist and plasma pistol. 201pts
10 blood claws one with power weapon mounted in Rhino 248pts

Fast Attack

3 blood claw bikers, one with flamer one with power fist and one with a power sword. 116pts
Land speeder w/ multi-melta. 65pts

Heavy support

Predator Destructor w/ lascannon sponsons 125pts
Land Raider w/ 2 side sponson Lascannons 250pts

Elites
Venerable Drednought wit autocannon 165pts
Iron Priest 80pts

Total-1440

CM, you forgot the seven Grey Hunters I gave you. I personally would get Termis and Scouts. You would still be under 2000 pts.

Be sure to read part 2 in there as well. To be honest it's the best advice I can give any new player to marines.

Personally i would ditch the bikers. They may have the ability to get up close and personal quickly but unsupported there dog food. They we will most probably be mobbed and slaughtered.

Also the Landraider could be scrapped. Although it has heavy weapons, the long fangs would easily make up for this and you may even (dependiing what you put in the long fangs) be able to stick in the scouts as well.

But if i had to go for anything it would be the scouts as they can be suited to many roles, such as snipers or a very good close support unit, and have the bility to infiltrate. All in all a good choice.

I guess you put the blood claws in the land raider and tat seems really nasty. You should have at least one powerfist in there thou.

A vindicator would be nice. More tanks make them survive longer as the opponent has to divide his heavy weapons fire.

But you are lacking in the troops department. The first I would get is another pack of grey hunters. Then long fangs.. they will survive longer then a tank I think.

I would go with Pontus, more troops and a vindicator or a demolisher.

I was leaning toward the long fangs b/c ther are the same amount of points as termies or less w/ their weapons. And they have better weapons, but a normal save.

Go with star CM. You need more bodies, over 50% of your army is heavy support and hq, more like 60%... I would get another squad of blood claws, or adding to your bikers is an option.........

i'd be steering away from all the choices listed...you wanna pick up an extra hunter squad and claw squad first, as well as a couple of extra rhinos before anything else...as for the options you've listed...well, scouts are good, as is the vindicator. terminators are waaaaaay too expensive in a space wolf army for anything less than a 2000 pt game (at the bare minimum...i'd be heading more towards 2500). and long fangs are basically just trash. everything they can do, a predator can do better...except split fire, which is an ability that'll vanish the moment they come under fire
