ok, sorry to be critical, but that entire army is an uncoordinated mish-mash

lemme go through this one unit at a time:

wolf lord needs a belt of russ if he's gonna be holding a power-fist. and can i recommend you get a pistol of some sort (plasma) instead of a bolter?? then he becomes really powerful

koloths pack: ditch the plasma pistol, buy a fist instead. claws only hit 50% of the time, and will barely get to shoot, so obviously 4 str 8 no save attacks on the charge is a much better investment and doesn't cost much more...also, if you get tight for points, you can afford to lose the melta-gun

thunderfists hunter-pack: honeslty, i'd be bumping up the size of this pack. at least one or 2 more hunters. and next, ditch the power-weapon for a power fist. there's almost no occasion when a fist isn't more useful

godswing's pack: you've got this whole plasma pistol problem again...see above

brimjaw's pack: ok, you have positively LOADS of options for hunter packs...make use of 'em...bare minimum 2 power fists or one ranged special weapon...and you've got the whole size issue again



heavy support

wolfbanes pack: there's no focus to this pack. you really have to focus the heavy weapons to get the most out of 'em...pick a role, anti-troop or anti-tank, tell me, and i'll give you a run-down on appropriate kit...however, 4 missile launchers covers all situation

and just to add to this: long fang packs are not the most cost-effective choice. you'd be much better off with a predator or vindicator than long fangs. in general, they only tend to see use cos they're fluffy


elites:

grimbanes pack: once again, no focus...they have a long-ranged weapon, a mid-ranged weapon and a short-ranged weapon...if i were you, because i'm not using OBEL with this pack, i'd kit 'em out like regular marine scouts

godwinson's pack: you're OBEL'ing with this pack, so obviously you want them to be as effective as possible...my experience says that to do this you should take the following config: 4 scouts, 2 plasma pistols, a melta-gun and a wolf-gurd pack-leader with a plasma pistol and thunder-hammer. this way they can tackle anything that they come across

old sven: i'm assuming you're not trying to use both the multimelta and the assault cannon in the same game?? anyways, this guy should be an HQ
