Battles: 1500 pts V chaos

I know I haven't posted for a while but their hasn't been much to say, anyway, onto todays game.

I played a chaos army with a dread, a rhino with berzerkers, 2 death claews one with berzerkers and one with plague marines, a greater daemon, some noise marines, some chaos marines and a daemon prince. All this against my 2 units of grey hunters, 1 unit of blood claws, ragnar, a rune priest, some wolf guard termies, 5 long fangs, a drop pod and a whirlwind. It was pitched battle with one objective each. I got thrashed to be honest, I couldn't stand up to the masses fire power and the deathclaw drop pod assault. I need to rework my list and tactics as I can't take hits even if i can deal with them.

Thanks for reading,

Basing: What to use.

So, I have been thinking, for basing I have:

Static Grass
can get spikes/bits of buildings
can make snow
can get sand

I'm thinking for my wolves to use gravel covered in snow/rubble, maybe tiny sprinkles of static grass to make foot prints.

So, what would you sugest, I know I haven't been updating much but this will not be overly regular because I am not always working on wolves.
