Ok, here's an experimental list on the kind of army I'm looking at. Lots of infantry, enough bodies for assault and anti-tank, enough termies to deal with tougher units, and moderate long range coverage. I'm adding some bloodclaws and not having just grey hunters all the way, to add some flavor to the army, not overusing greyhunters.... In each modularized unit of the troop, if everyone goes on foot (as how Russ intended), I can attached a wolf guard terminator to each of the grey hunters or long fangs to add to their potency. However, if transports are added, I'll replaced some of the termies with rhinos/drop-pod/razorback. Eventually, I'll beef it up to about 2.5K with the necessary hardware like all transport included and maybe a Land Raider, and maybe a juicy dreadnought as a centrepiece.
I'm trying to keep to the fluff especially for the wolfguard where there should be the almost no repetition in their fit-out to express individuality. Also, it will be interesting in terms of hobbying with all the variety.
Let's see, Ragnar and Ulrik may be attached to any of the troops, preferably Ragnar+GH and maybe Ulrik with one of the BC+WG as a mentor. Naturally, Njal can join any of the WG termie squad.

Starting point!

It been a busy first quarter of the year! Moving about and looking at a more steady time ahead, I now find the comfort to start of my Space Wolf eventually, yeay!
My recent hauls includes 1 battleforce, 1 pack of SW termie wolf guard and Njal Stormcaller. I'm starting slow on this and eventually will add up to my infantry number.

I've decided to go for a Ragnar battle company theme. So Ulrik should be on my list soon. I shall be putting together the minis shortly and hopefully to show some pics soon.
