These torsos I'm not that huge of a fan of.

I'm not up on the latest Heresy era fluff, but those torso are pretty lackluster. I don't get the four pointed star. The heads see just so/so, very plain, and very smooth. Yes, I get that they look like skulls, but they're pretty boring.

I honestly think the Death Guard upgrade set would work better for Iron Warriors. Not the shoulder pads obviously, but a combination of the Iron Warriors heads with the Death Guard heads and the Death Guard torsos would look a lot better. The Death Guard torsos are much more Mark III looking and aggressive.

You can always use them but paint them as Iron Warriors. The great thing about the hobby how you work around problems.

While I find the Iron Warriors an odd choice, I can understand why the choices they made where made. FW is trying really hard to make legions distinct in how they look beyond the color (which was the old method of telling most of the legions apart, though a lot of them had the same colors originally) and that means skirting away from stuff like that.

That said, there is nothing stopping people from mixing and matching their favorite armor types in their army (or even on their individual models). Be as restrained or as crazy as you want, it's your army and as long as you're happy with how it looks then that's all that matters.
