A Thousand Points of Light: Space Wolves by Patrick Eibel
Long-time visitors to the Jungle might know about my Ork armies, but I've also played Space Wolves since the earliest days of Second Edition. In my totally unbiased opinion, they're the only Marine chapter worth playing!!!

This list is not meant to be a "killer" list for winning tournaments or trouncing people at the local gaming shop. Rather, it is a foundation that players can build upon as they desire.

1000 point list
Use the Blood Claws for your Grey Hunters (the Blood Claw box comes with assault weapons, but is otherwise the same as the Grey Hunter box) and use the accessory sprue to create characters with pelts and power weapons. You may need to get a regular Space marine accessory sprue (around $1.00) to get a flamer, or if you are lucky you can trade with someone.

Space Wolf Tactics
In a skirmish, the Battle Leader will join the Blood Claws in their Rhino while the other Wolf Guard joins the Grey Hunters in theirs. Both Rhinos will move full speed toward the enemy while the Venerable Dreadnought and the Predator provide fire support. The Dread is ideal for taking out light vehicles and infantry, while the Predator can deal with enemy tanks. 

The Wolf Scouts should arrive at the rear of the enemy just as the Grey Hunters and Blood Claws charge. At that point, it's time to crank up Led Zeppelin's “The Immigrant Song” and wade into hand-to-hand combat with the enemy. “Valhalla, I am coming!”
