I have been toying with different options for the WGLs in my grey hunters squads, and several other people on this forum keep suggesting the PF+meltabombs combo. I put this setup in my army list, but then started thinking, and I started wondering if PF+meltabombs is the best combo for WGLs. With the 5th ed rules about assaulting a vehicle, all hits are now on the rear armor in CC, so wouldn’t a powerfist just take care of that issue? I dont see the logic behind having both a powerfist and meltabombs, if this is a good option, could someone enlighten me as to why?

Spacewolves are badasses who operate barely inside the rules.
The 13th Co didnt even know there were rules limiting how badass they could be.

The bombs are great against LR's ect. I personally like running Power Weps + melta bombs occasionally or LCs and bombs depending on the squad makeup. But if you have someone in TDA just go straight to the CF (only 2 more pts than a fist +bombs).

For GH's i run a WGL with PF and bolter, GH x8 Bolters, GH w/ Spec Weapon.

Thats it.

If I give the WGL a PW, then a Melta Bomb upgrade is purchased for the reasons you post.

If he's got a Powerfist or Thunderhammer, then he doesn't need the Meltabombs; the marginal advantage isn't worth the cost. If you give him a Power Weapon, however, and there are no other Power Fists in the unit, then you would maybe want Meltabombs to ensure that you have something that can deal with Dreadnoughts/Walkers in close combat.

I got a Powerfist and Bolter on my GH WGL and no meltabombs...from what I understand is that Powerfists do the same job albeit in a different way, the Space Wolf way....up close and personal =)
