Shooty Space Wolves
Most people associate space wolves with headstrong full frontal assaults. However, with the long fang's ability to split fire long fangs are a huge asset when it comes to swinging the tides of battle.
The only draw back is without the option of being able to take more than 5 long fangs for ablative wounds, they are more vulnerable than your standard marine devastator squad load-out. To counter this, some like to field an extra wolfguard in terminator armor with ass cannon and missile rack.
4 long fangs with missile launchers + wolfguard with missile rack allows 6 or 7 shots of missiles... I can't remember if the missile rack shoots 2 rounds or counts as twin linked, but nonetheless this is a whole lot of dakka.
In case that wasn't enough, Rune priest can also support Long Fangs with their living lightning abilities. D6 hits at S7 AP5 with unlimited range hitting on a 2 up with chooser of the slain... btw, space wolves can field up to 4 rune priests.
