Default bringing a knife to a gun fight.

ok, so most players ive met dont play as space wolves, so the other night when i met someone who did i asked to play a game. so my list was what i bring against space marines, good amount of fire warrior, maybe a squad of kroot, some pathfinders, a bunch of helios suits and in this game, a riptide.
i expected them to play like normal space marines, kinda like how blood angels do, but then he used a psychic power that made me take a initiative check, which i failed, and then it instantly killed my riptide.

so im wondering if anyone knew some of their other differentiates from space marines, it would help a lot

They're slower then blood angels but hit just as hard in CC. Expect drop pods a lot. Longfangs are just nasty and they have those damn wolf packs.

But mainly, expect a terminator in most basic squads. Wolf guard terminators are like the necron royal court.

all of that^ and also;
Go for the runepriest.
-That psychic power is called Jaws of the World Wolf ( JotWW for short).
It is feckin' evil.
They are kinda like a SM army, but every bolter has pointy sticks attached to it.
less speed than blood angels, but there assault will hit like a MOFO. not to mention their shooting is pretty wicked aswell.
Oh, and they have Superhuman Space Soldiers Riding HUEG wolves.

'Long fangs' refers to the space wolf devastator equivalent. they are better then normal devastators by about 2km.

Space wolves are notorious for their spam drop pod lists.
also, you know each HQ slot? Yeah, they can take two heroes per slot.
They also have a single model elite you that, if it survives, grants you a kill point. so um, they're pretty freaky.

yeah, no matter what though, at least space wolves arent broken, like necrons, also was the "boom headshot" a dissidea reference?
