Also playing around with the WGBL in TDA leading a grey hunter squad using an assault cannon, also using 4 fenrisian wolves with him. This is probably my most favorite, but it's a lot of points added into a grey hunter squad, and I'm not sure if I'd like about 150 extra points put into a grey hunter squad just for an assault cannon to be firing at the same squad as my bolters are. Also not being able to cart them around in a rhino makes me leary.
Using the same WGBL as above (assault cannon and 4 fenrisian wolves) but just keeping him by himself, out in the open, not a hot Idea, but if he follows behind a rhino or something he shouldn't do too bad (wish you could just put him and the 4 wolves in a drop pod )
Also using the WGBL with a cyclone ML 4 wolves attached to a GH squad, this would be pretty nice because for the first 1-2 turns I'd have a very nifty tank hunting weapon and afterwards a decent infantry weapon.
Then again, why not just keep him by himself with 4 wolves, set him behind a GH squad, shoot the hell out of stuff, then when something comes to munch on some GH's I have a nasty HtH unit right behind them
Then I thought well, what if I don't give him TDA, just normal power armor, forget the whole FAQ about giving him heavy weapons and just keep him cheap and take advantage of his retinue rules and slap him in a BC squad or something.
I guess it boils down to this, what units will be running (negating any effort to have my WGBL shoot) and what are the advantages to having the WGBL attached to a squad and will it end up getting me more points.
The more I think about it, the more I wish GW didn't give us this option in the FAQ it just makes it about 1000X harder to create lists.
PS: please someone find me a way to put a WGBL and 4 fenrisian wolves into a drop pod by themselves and I'll show you a happy man.
