About Balrog numbers see the thread named 'Balrogs'.

And trying to find out how many Wolfs Morgoth had is like trying to find out how many Orcs he had. The drakes which couldn't fly were probably hundreds strong in total. The Flying types that Morgoth made ready for the War of Wrath were perhaps 2-4 dozen in number.
