First Space Wolves list

So, after reading both Space Wolf omnibi I decided to start with a fluffy list that had Ragnar in his younger days with Sgt Hakon and his small Blood Claws pack. Here's the list:

Wolf Lord Berek Thunderfist
-power fist
-storm bolter
-runic armor
-belt of rudd
-wolf tooth necklace
-melta bombs
-saga of th bear

He's expensive, but I wanted to get close to how he was portrayed in the books: tough to kill.

Bjorn the Fell-handed
-drop pod

Blood claws x7
-drop pod
This is going to be Ragnar's squad. There'll be a wolf guard with them to represent Sgt Hakon

Grey Hunters x10
-plas gun x2

Blood Claws x15
-melta gun

-plas cannon
-wolf tooth necklace
-wolf tooth talisman

Power armor w/power weapon
-Sgt Hakon
Term w/asslt cannon
Term w/wolf claws
Term w/th & ss
Term w/frostblade
Power armor w/jump pack, wolf claws
Term w/chain fist
Term w/power fist
Term w/wolf claws
Term w/cyclone missiles

Lone wolf w/mark of the wulfen

Fast Attack:

Heavy Support:
Long Fangs
-heavy bolter x2
-las cannon x2
-plas cannon

Since its my first list, along with being fluffy, I wanted to try lots of stuff. I'm tryin to find the right scale toy wolf for the cavalry, so they'll be in the next list.

The beginning.

I've decided that I want to be a high level 40k painter. I really enjoy the game. I used to play Heroclix. The sculpts were ok, but the paint usually sucked. Now, I get to decide how good or bad they look. I've been playin for about a year and started with Tau. I painted the army and magnetized some crisis suits. I moved onto Necrons and we all know how easy they are to paint.
I was looking for the next army to mess with after Necrons and bought the Space Marine codex and the Eldar codex. I was leaning towards Eldar but someone else in my playgroup beat me to em, so I chose Space Marines. I began a Crimson Fists army cuz I liked Pedro Kantor and the CF story so much. I was gettin bored with Pedro and the gang so I moved to Salamanders. I'm having a lot of fun with Vulkan He'stan and the gang but I like new armies and painting challenges.

I thought about starting Chaos Marines until the Space Wolf info started coming out. So, what does a good Space Marine fanboy do? I bought the 2 Space Wolf omnibusses (omnibi?) and started reading.

So now I've got a pile of Wolf sprues and an army list to fill out. I suppose I should get to work.
I have also taken a commission to build and paint a Chaos Daemon army.

The real point of this rambling is to intro myself as an aspiring painter/modeler. I plan to show the Daemons and the Wolves as I work on them.
