Analysis:
-Logan Grimnar - The Great Wolf hisself. Not only is his statline nine kinds of absurd, but his ability to confer a special rule upon his squad is where his true value exists in this list. Logan here will be accompanying the Drop Podding Long Fangs to provide them with Relentless. That's right. Relentless Long Fangs. Did I forget to mention he can give all those adorable Wolf Guard an extra attack for a turn with Living Legend? All-Father help you, Enemies of Man, because Logan won't.

-Wolf Guard Packs - Only 3 points more for an extra attack over Grey Hunters? And scoring with Logan! Sold. I went with the Combi-Meltas for some nice tank opening ability. Combined with the twin Frost Blades and the 2 attack base, even for the Combi-Weapon units, and you have one mean tank shredding unit. The Assault Cannon Razorback provides a powerful anti-infantry element, and it can also be used against vehicles in a pinch.

-Grey Hunters Pack - I love these guys. They're a truly fantastic unit. Free special weapon? Awesome! By now, Power Fists should be self-explanatory, so i'm not going to bore you with what you already know. The Plasma Guns are there to provide some withering anti-elite fire, and you have one all around solid troop unit.

-Thunderwolf Cavalry- Ah, Thunderwolves. I hate this unit. Not because it's not awesome, but fighting them is so dang unfair! These guys are on a whole nother level of good. 2 wounds at T5? Nice. I went with two three man units, because let's face it, those other guys are there as ablative wounds for the Thunder Hammer guy. And two Thunder Hammers are ALWAYS better than one.

-Long Fangs Pack - Where these guys really shine is Fire Control. Aiming at two targets in one turn is fantastic. I chose the Plasma Cannons to tear apart any Chaos Marines or other MEQ hordes who dare to show their faces against the Sons of Russ, and the Multi-Meltas to tear apart any Land Raiders who think they stand a chance here. They don't. But what truly makes these guys great is the Relentless bonus from Logan. A Devastator Squad that can fire at two targets AND on the turn they Drop Pod in? Priceless.

-Closing Thoughts - This has got to be one of the meanest lists i've ever seen. Stay tuned for tomorrow, the 7th Legion, the Imperial Fists!

And a special shout out to Demonllamma for his help in creating this list. You continue to prove yourself a valuable ally, sir! Llammas for the Llama God!

Normally I don't look over other peoples lists online... but I must say that I do like the construction of this list. I think it is a great list and one of these days I might even try it out on the board just to see if I really like it.

Keep up the good work Ciaphas

Just what is it with you and transports? Every list of yours I've yet seen has, like, a million rhinos and at least one drop pod. I mean, come on.
