Adam over at Space Wolves Grey has posted up his Razorwolves list in part in comment to the fact that pretty much all Space Wolf lists in the UK are converging on a single principle list of Grey Hunters in Rhinos accompanied by some Rune Priests and Long Fangs. I'm as guilty as the next man for building similar lists in part because they are just so versatile and work extremely well. However, its not the only list out there, and so for your consideration, I present the "Wolftastic" list:
Canis Wolfborne + 2 Fenrisian Wolves
Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf, thunder-hammer, storm-shield, 2 Fenrisian Wolves and all the trimmings
Iron Priest on Thunderwolf + 4 Cyberwolves
Wolf Guard, power-fist, combi-melta
5 Grey Hunters, meltagun, Mark of the Wulfen, Wolf Standard
Razorback (of your choice between twin Las, Assault Cannon or Las-Plas)
223 pts each
4 Thunderwolf Cavalry, thunder-hammer, 2 x storm-shields
8 Fenrisian Wolves
64 pts each
Which totals 1737 leaving a few extra points to allocate to something or other. The idea is the two units of Fenrisian Wolves join Canis and the Lord, and them, the Thunderwolves and Iron Priest all charge forward and get in amongst the enemy and cause huge amounts of carnage. With Canis all the Fenrisian Wolves and Cyberwolves are going at I5 and the enemy has to divide its attention between 4 extremely hard hitting units. Meanwhile, the Grey Hunters in the Razorbacks (and I'd suggest going with the lascannon option on the Razorbacks for some ranged anti-armour) tool around in the back field securing objectives and mopping up. Thats 7 Thunderwolves, 20 Fenrisian wolves and 4 Cyberwolves all going at I5 and a whole lot more.
You could also lose the Fenrisian wolves from Canis and the Lord, the 4th Thunderwolf, the Wolf Standards from the Grey Hunters and reduce the Fenrisian Wolf packs to 5 minimum each and have room for another Iron Priest with Cyberwolves.
I haven't played this list, but would love to put one together and see how destructive it could be. What do you think?
