After some thought.
Blood Claws may become our preferred Troops choice, and it seems more and more likely the more I think about it.
- GH's are shooty, but not that assaulty. BC's with at least 4 dice each hitting on 2's on the charge with only 2 dice hitting on 3's after being stuck in means that a nearby Wulfen pack or a boosting WP HQ for reroll 1's on the 4 dice just became "mandatory."
Long Fangs with only a -1 to hit penalty moving, which can be negated easily with our Strategem is going to aid the Old Coots nicely.
Dreadnoughts getting 4 attacks base, plus any Fenrisian Great Axe with Blizzard Shield and Storm Bolter dreads won't be that great on their save, but, their attacks will be brutal.
Wolf Guard with Csword and Storm Shield may become a favored option for PA WG.
TDA WG with paired WC's or TH/SS are going to hit on 2's for Claws, at least 4 dice on the charge, and have a usually reliable armor save, and 5+ invul won't hurt.
TH/SS will become DPS tarpits on the charge.
I think we won't need that much changed, but what is going to be the "minimal" changes should result in a much more fun army to play as on the table. We will become likely slightly more competitive of an army, until we find all of our new little changes to find uses for on the table.
I think a Stormraven with GH pack of 10, WGPL, and an HQ to taste with a FGA&BS/SB Dread riding in back for escort duty to press the advantage into the enemy's backfield will become a staple once some of us get too good at it for the foe's liking, soon enough.
The wolves with paired Heavy Bolters and Hurricane Bolter Centurions should be a VERY dakka heavy support element. One LRC and five of these nasties will make the enemy suffer greatly.
And, we'll finally get Grav weapons. After they are not the game breaking MEQ eaters of old. Oh well, still, I welcome the chance to see what might be done with them. Reroll to wound on Long Fangs with Grav Cannons with Grav Amp and hit on 3's or 2's is going to be a pain, and attach a WP for reroll to hit shenanigans at range.
I think we'll be close to fine, and at least competitive enough to not be too concerned until if or when, time will tell, the entire points per model and statline systems get any potential revisit.
I'm not worried.
