Logan Wing List

I've been list building for a 2,500 point tournament coming up in October. I'm either going to play my IG, Wolves or Blood Angels.

Out of my armies that are in playable condition, the current meta suggests I should run IG with some Wolf allies but I detest allies so I'm going to play a pure list - I just haven't made up my mind which one yet.

 My IG would be fairly standard, lots of mech, lots of troops with a sizable psyker unit that usually catches my opponents off guard. I haven't played them since 5th because I can't cast while in a chimera anymore.

My Blood Angels dreadnought/drop pod army is a lot of fun, but I had an idea to field 30 Death Company with power weapons and power fists. I know they are expensive, but not much can stand up to that... except a lot of barrage weapons first turn.

However, I think I'm going to try the Logan Wing list. Here's roughly what I've got on paper now.

*Run priest - Jaws, Living Lightening
*Wolf Priest

*13 Blood Claws
*4 Wolf Guard Termie units in drop pods:
1 Power Sword
1 Power Claws
1 Power Fist
2 Thunder hammers

*Landraider Crusader
* 2 units of Long Fangs - all missile launchers

*Defence line with gun

The Blood Claws and Priest ride around in the raider, trying to beat up troops while the drop pods deposit termies where they can do the most damage. My long fangs sit behind the fence and shoot while a long fang sgt. shoots the incepting gun. My priest is the wild-card and will bounce around trying to jaws/lightening/force weapon things to death.

It seems a bit short on numbers, but I'm hoping that I can get the first strike off. Usually my opponents will turtle up against this many drop pods and that will help the rest of my army pick their targets a little easier.
