like in the title 4 rune priest in an army of 1500 is that dumb or the best thing in the world?

Actually you can go with 2 priests only. You have only 2 HQ slots in FOC.

the space wolves special rule The Leaders of the Pack

[QUOTE]In a Space Wolves army, each HQ 'slot' allows you to take up two HQ choices. this means that in a standard mission a Space Wolves army may take one, two, three or even four HQ choices.[QUOTE]

It could be fun to play with but I don't think it'd be the most tactically sound army. Rune Priests run the risk of killing themselves, and potentially doing bugger all.

I'd take one or two in a bigger game, but four is too much in 1,500 for me.

Forgive me, Im not familliar with space wulf codex. :unsure: . Priest and wolf lord is IMHO most reasonable option for a big game. Priest for killing big 'nids and blocking lashes and other annoying psychic powers.

Space Wolves don't get Psychic Hoods on the Rune Priest Feytor. ;) They're similar to Librarians but not too similar - they weren't banned at Nicaea for a start.

Most units in the Space Wolf army are able to take some form of psychic defence, making resiting powers like Lash of Submission much easier for them. Rune Priests are there for damage and mobile cover saves really.

EDIT: My mistake, almost all characters can take Wolf Tail Talismans, as can all Dreadnoughts and Iron Priests, but not units. I thought they could for some reason. Also, Ulrik the Slayer doesn't have a Wolf Tail Talisman. Why? The Great Wolf does, so why wouldn't the Slayer? Bizarre.

I'd whack one in Runic, or give them both Wolf Tails. As far as I can work out from the rules you can give them both the same gear so long as they don't have the same combination of gear, Saga and powers.

As for casting Stormcaller etc, check the FAQ, found here.
