Default Ironclad opinions?

I'm considering adding an Ironclad Dread (probably the Forge World MkIV with the eagle-headed seismic hammer and hurricane bolters) to my vanilla marine force. Has anyone had any experience with the model or have any opinion on its effectiveness in a game?

I have one but I use it with the DCCW and the seismic hammer and I have to say it's one of the best models in my army,
because if you take every option available it still doesn't cost more than 200pts, the ironclad assault launchers give it both defensive and assault grenades, having the choice to take two heavy flamers gets rid of swarms of enemies, and the bump up to 13 front and side armour means that it's a lot harder for your opponent to take you out in close combat and at a distance.
I have taken out 1000pts of tyranids with it alone so I'm pretty confidant it can hold its own with just about anything out there.

Thanks for the input i'll probably stick with the hurricane bolter though, partly for the extra firepower, and partly because i'm not all that keen on the MkIV DCCW
