Welcome to 40konline and the Space Wolves! (I myself started by collecting Space Wolves and have around 2500 pts worth and reasonable experience in fielding them)

Meltaguns are a lot less useful on blood claws (they have BS3) give one squad a flamer to deal with light infantry and with the rest maximise the number of power fists you can take. This is what wins combats. Not sure about meltagun on blood claw bikers (also BS3). If you want to take out tanks ues a squad of wolf scouts (with meltagun) and deploy them in reserve coming on the board behind the enemy.

Characters: Always take Wolf pelts: they are really worth their points cost (only 3 points). This being said, keep him well inside his squad so he gets a chance to counter attack if the squad is charged (coming out a rhino I imagine they will be). I wouldn't take healing potions and balms: too expensive. Instead if you have the points take wolf tooth necklaces: they are invaluable against enemy characters ot monsters.

That looks very good! ;D

One little thing I would say is give both characters wolf pelts and take runic charm and frags from the Wolf Priest (if he joins a squad he can benefit from their grenades.)
