So I need a bit of advise on what to include into this list to push it up to 2000 points. I've thought about maybe some transports for my dudes, maybe a landraider, couple of vindicators, couple of whirlwinds, maybe some sky claws. Just not sure. Any tips?

Index Bikers with storm shield snad storm bolters. 200points gets you 5 with that setup. Strong option.

Wulfen with Hammers and Shields. Way too strong not to use them.

Razorbacks are ok for the Grey Hunters. Twin Assault Canon option is my go to.

I also prefer to run Wolf Lords with Jump Packs, instead of on Thunderwolves. Change at least one of the wolf lords to a WGBL to get re-roll to wound aura.

Where do you play and what are your goals?

If you play ITC don't get anything index as it is not allowed. Most tournaments will follow this rule (legends not approved for tournament play).

My best advice would be to wait a couple months until PA (saga of the beast?) comes out. Given GWs history there will be some crazy powerful combos released using models that GW wants to sell.

I don't like invictors because they don't get chapter tactics now but that should change once we get the PA treatment.

^I don't believe this is correct. Index units are allowed, so long as they were not replaced by a codex entry.

Under Army Building Guidelines:
"7. You must use the most current datasheets for your models - e.g. those found in a Codex rather than an index IF a Codex is available for your army."

On the form "What Datasheet Rules do I use"

"Does your model have a datasheet in a codex? --> No --> Use the Index version of your model's datasheet."

Can you add a quick write up of your goals are? Is this going to be fore casual? Tournament? Are you looking for heavy assault build (Though its is likely implied by the fact you chose SW)? Etc.

Thanks for the thoughts guys, truthfully I forgot I even posted this so I apologise for not replying. My list has changed a bit since I posted but the idea behind it is to have several elements.

The long fangs, iron priest, battle leader and intercessors hang back to provide a fire base. The wolf lords and murderfang will advance together as a mini anti infantry murder ball with lots of rerolls. The wulfen will outflank with the strategies. The stormfang will serve as a distraction and drop off the wolf guard where they can serve as a screen for the advancing characters. Bjorn will either stay with the long fangs or advance depending on what I need him to do.

The Iron priest is going to ride in the StormFang with the Wulfen? Honestly, I'd take a Rune Priest with a jump pack instead. That way you can cast Storm Caller to keep the flyer in cover.

The stormwolf doesn't have the capacity for the wulfen, the wolf guard will be in the stormwolf. I'll be using cunning of the wolf on the wulfen to charge them in from a board edge.

As for the iron priest, I know it's a bit of an odd addition. I'll likely keep him stuck to Bjorn for added protection, plus he gets an ultra cheap thunder hammer that's even better. XD

I'm telling you, Rune Priests are strong!!!! Worth adding to the list.
