Default The Shield of the Iron Tyrant

We saw a sneak preview of these guys a while back. Well now they're out.

I must admit, if I had an expendable income, I'd buy it. And I don't even care for Iron Warriors at all.

These are awesome! Iron Warriors are about as interesting as a loaf of bread to me but these are some really nice models

Yeah, love these guys. They'd almost oust the contemptor as my favourite bit of FW SM swag.

Those are gorgeous. I've played a partially iron warriors army since second edition. However, that set is ridiculously expensive. That's a good chunk of my mortgage! I can't justify that sort of spending.

These things would be a reason for me to play Iron Warriors, if I had endless monies.

I would buy them, smack some mechanical wings on them and use them as Daemon Princes in 40k too. God those are magnificent!

Really cool, I really like them a lot! However I wonder if forgeworld will bring out Perturabos pimped shadowsword tank that carried him and his robot hommies about

These guys are fucking insane! They look absolutely incredible!

Sure, they're pretty spendy, but just for reference for those who aren't familiar with 30k rules - 4 is the most you will ever bring to a game because that's the minimum squad size to upgrade them to the Iron Circle, and more common will be just a pair of regular Domitar-Ferrum. Running 4 or more with Perturabo is cutesy for the display cabinet, but borderline unplayable.

Besides, they're honkin' huge Forge World fightan robits, I don't know what people expected

They are magnificent, but I cannot like the model for Peturabo, they overdid his electric dreadlocks. Shame, because I do like the Iron warriors.
