cool, looks a bit like my list. how much grey hunters have you got in there?

And would you not consider replacing the landraider for a stormwolf?

Drop the Helfrost cannon on Bjorn, its bottom tier and sadly underperforming. The Assault Cannon (Anti-Infantry) or Lascannon (AA) are great go to's. biggrin.png

 

I would also advise switching the Land Raider to a Stormwolf/Stormfang Gunship as mentioned above.

Rhinos are great line of sight blockers, but Razorbacks with Twin Assault Cannons are better and a little more fun.

I'm guessing melee monster Rune Priest with Fury Wolves spell? He could provide a good -1 to hit on a dread as you advance you Dread-Mob up the field. Good times.

These are some Solid suggestions . the LR is for the Wulfen and distraction from the Rest so a Stormwolf is a good alternative.

The GH are barebone (3x 5man) and just wounds and objective campers since i dislike Primaris.

Helfrost on Bjorn isnt trash; its not the best but the Cheapest option and the same thought on the Rhinos they are cheap but sturdy screens for the characters nothing more.

I played Assault RB several times and they were focused on most of the time. And with the current meta im in they do not well.

Against hordes they are amazing though.

Stormwolf/Stormfang will also provide a bit more firepower and allow you to get your Wulfen up the board faster.

 

Unfortunate about the Razorbacks, but hey, more screening units.

I played against Dark Templars  yesterday and his List wasn't Competive one but solid.

The Player made some mistakes (the Ravenwing got within 15" of me) and i tabled him by T2.

The Wulfen Dreads are Fantastic with the 4++.

Made some Changes since the Army had More Bodies/Landspeeder than Heavy Armor and went for LRC and Axe/Shield Dreads (Scythe).

In addition i changed the WLT to the Hunter Since Advance and Charge with the Dreads is too good.

Nice report

I prefer dread SW armies as well.

I was actually enjoying the 3++ blizzard shield army I ran before our codex dropped.

I am hoping our codex update gives them a boost

Something oddly pleasing about watching a few dreadnoughts march across the field mowing down xenos and heretic alike.
