A draft list is attached. Thoughts for removal, addition, or revision are very welcome.
Yes, it looks a lot like the Black Legion list. That's sort of the point, after all. maddoctor
Well, Grey hunters are meant to be older, tougher versions of scouts.
Sure you're not thinking of Wolf Scouts?
but if you prefer how about a pack of fenrisian wolves?
A little anticlimactic, but it'd fit...
The thing is that most other veteran units are kind of impressive (with the Word Bearers the obvious exception). Wolf Packs...aren't.

For the Dark Angels, don't forget Deathwing are post heresy. Perfect opportunity to bring back the Ironwing though as a LR formation.
Are they, though? It seems inconclusive in the current material, and if I bring back the Ironwing I might as well just have the Deathwing.
By Deathwing I really mean I'll be using the Deathwing statline - they won't necessarily be Deathwing.
Wulfen or Fenrisian wolves would be great for the Space Wolves.
Hadn't thought of Wulfen. Interesting thought. On the other hand, I thought the Wolves tended to hide them away.
I'm gagging for this list, I've wanted to paint up a pre-heresy World Eater list for ages
Well. No pressure, then.

Do you envisage having combined roles and armour in formations? Example: Assault with Tacticals and even 1 or 2 terminators? It will effect Transport options mostly (speaking from experience from the World Eaters list) however it will really give that Heresy feel if a way was found to show this and keep it balanced - and competitive (points vs activations).
The basic structure will be borrowed from the Black Legion list. There will be three core companies - Tacticals, Bikes, and Armoured. Elites are one per Company, Support is two per company. Support is mostly small to medium formations with little or no possibility for upgrades. Elites is small formations with the potential to get bigger (in some cases). And the core companies are medium and can get downright huge. Mixture of units is very possible (I've always found the lack of that in the Codex list odd, and the Heresy list gives license to do it).
Or just look at the file that is now attached to the first post.

A list with this many unique unit types of marines is going to be pretty tricky for an opponent to keep track of.
Well, the intent is that you only have to keep track of one at a time, since you can only be one legion at a time (and there is a special rule to make sure of that).
