Default Space wolves

Hello. I am currently about to finish off my space wolves at about 2000 points I plan to add all troops to beef up my army.
five of my nine units consist of armor so some mass should help. I am planning to Have 2 squads of blood claws,maybe at 15 men strong if i have the points, and 4 troops of grey hunters a ten men strong. then in a 2000 point match i should number around 60-70 space marines ;D

The only thing i was thinking of doing though was adding some grey knight allies. Are there any suggestions of this? Or should I go pure space wolves?

just looking for some advice.

Go pure. There is never any good reason to add Grey Knights into your army, unless you only ever play Chaos.

If you have the DH on hand and it would save you from buying more SW I would say go for it.

I think i will just go pure. It would probably be easier and faster because they are expensive and I don't like gluing metal models

4 tooled up Gh squads is over 200 points. 10 hunters, 8 bolters, 2 powerfists, transport. For these guys it 1000 points. taking 15man blood claw squads requires 2 land raider crusaders. if they're on foot, dont bother taking them. And then theres the 3 obligatory, and expensive HQs. you will have a tough job fitting it all into 2000 points.

Remember, Space Wolves need to be mobile. that means (especially) rhinos and drop pods, razorbacks, land raiders. and (expensive) jump pack/ or biker blood claws.

I say go pure Space Wolves. the only good thing from the DH codex that would be of use to you are their tasty terminators, and the vindicare assassin- the sniper dude.

They are the grey warriors, ashen like the wolf, whose greatest joy is to hear the clamour of steel amidst the din of war. None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

and you can't take the assassin . remember, you can't use a daemon or witch-hunter's HQ with space wolves
