Infantry Wolves

I am playing in my first singles 40K tournament in over a year (recently won a doubles tournament), and I am a little rusty. The last two weeks I changed my strategy to infantry-based Space Wolves, and have gotten good results in my practice games. I am hoping to get some in progress shots of my army up as well in the next few days, as I have a week to finish the army to tabletop standard. I have about 35 models to paint.

I tried out Njal for the first time last night. My reason for using what I think could be an overpriced character is points denial and his Storm Caller chart. The chart was a very nice bonus last night vs the Orks. Also the tournament has a kill point scenario where HQ choices are worth 3 kill points. My original list had 2 Rune Priests in it and I replaced them with Njal to knock another 3 kill points from the list. Here is what I playtested last night and I am finalizing for the tournament, keep in mind it is a comp scored tournament:


Njal
Wolf Lord, thunderwolf, saga of the wolfkin, storm shield, frost blade

5 Wolf Scouts, power weapon, melta gun
5 Wolf Guard, 5 power fists
Lone Wolf, terminator, chainfist, storm shield, 2 fenrisian wolves

10 Grey Hunters, melta gun, flamer, power weapon, motw, standard
