Wait hang on this has no tank killing ability Darn you new rending rule!


Acutally the list does as the LRC have Muitimeltas as standard

So another question on my list is it worth removing 1 of the grey hunter packs for a unit of wolf scouts

your thoughts

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but power fists work even better!

I'm all for talking nice and being peaceful, but if that fails, I'm all for running their sorry arses down with 90 tons of Land Raider Crusader.

The breakfast of champions is not cearal but the opposition.

There's no such thing as being surrounded, but there are times when you can attack in any direction.

Short answer, no. Not in 5th Ed.

In 4th, possibly, as at least in 4th they were still a scoring unit. But in 5th, at 1000pt, when you already have over a quarter of your points available tied up in the LRC... you need as many scoring units as you can get, and the G.Hunters are a lot more durable then the scouts.

If it was a standard 1000pt list I'd say take a OBEL pack as standard in pretty much any list, but with a 1000pt LRC list, you need as much other points into the Troops choices as you can get.

The reason that I asked was if a pack of scouts arrived on my opponents board edge they could then assault and prevent a unit shooting at the crusader with the WGBL and blood claws in increasing their chances of arriving to kill my opponents

Brother Icewolf,
in a 1000pt game...that's a something you may want to think twice about. But, if you can afford scouts -GET EM! OBEL rocks faces. Nothing like watching your opponent cry when he says "they can't assault when they arrived as they're deep striking..." MU-HA HA HA ;)
For the Wolftime, praise Russ!

In Russ we trust, all others kiss my axe.

I will work out a new list but at the moment I think that it will be replacing 1 Grey hunter pack and possibly free up some points for 1 or 2 more blood claws

also is a wolf guard pack leader worth trying to squese in and attack to the wolf scouts

Good list, roll with it, I'd put a thunder hammer on the WGPL that is attached to the scouts, just because it's cute when assaulting a vehicle :P .

Also a meltagun and some plasma pistols wouldn't hurt on that scouts squad. :lol:

Other than that, play test it and see how you like it.

Not sure where I could find the points for that if the plasma gun on the gery hunters was dropped I could get 12pts more there but otherwise I think I will possibly playtest the list but wait until the new marine and wolf codex comes out as I would have to aquire most of that List

Edit: Anyone got any ideas if I should change or just try this list out
