Land raider, smoke lunchers 253 pts

The plan is to drive forwards with the possessed and a HQ in each of the land raiders and hopefully be able to engade my enemy in turn 2-3.
since it is mostly marines that attend I will be able to out figth the majority. The marines are just there to make it legal, take tablequaters at the last turn, and try to shot down monoliths, dreadnoughts and other hard tanks.
What do you think?

well its original i'll give you that :)
Land raiders, IMO anyway are subpar at6 best. Sure against some opps they may struggle to deal with you. But most have something in there list that can handle AV14. For the points you could have 3 preds AND give the possessed Rhinos. I actually think 2 squads is a little bit overkill, but i am a fan of taking possessed in an army. Full of character AND deadly

I have to agree. You've got a whole lot tied up in those two landraiders, so one bad luck round can end your aspirations. As a tournament army, I feel it lacks teh variety needed to handle all contingencies effectively.

yeah imagine facing a tau list with 2 sets of 2 Broadsides. Bye bye :(
For a tournament force it seems weak, but as a one off give it a go for a laugh against a mate, then it looks like it could be fun[if you hide his railgun's anyway :)]

I know it lacks alot, 9 obliterators and 4 pie plate shooters like every other Iron warrior turnament army, but the idea is not to win the turnament. It is to show that even if you play iron warriors you can think outside of the "I stand still and shot"... In the old fluff they talk about that on the assult iron warriors was as furious at the charge as world eaters, you could even include berzerkers!!! But I have never meet a Iron warrior player who tries to do a pure assult army. At most they include one squad to counter-attack when the shooting fails and/or a daemon prince with speed or wings.

Its nice too see you doing it too, you might well find it phases some opponents bacause it does not match their idea of Iron Warriors.

One thing though, I would really try and pop a Warsmith in there for fluff flavour or as mentioned it could be any Legion. ( The ability to repair damage on those Land Raiders would be nice too.)

Very True, but i still think there are better ways of acheiving this. If you dropped one of the Possessed squads and landraiders, it would free up lots of points to include normal Infiltrate CC squads, maybe some raptors or bikers[ive always thought they suit iw] etc...

Its all very well taking something different to show you can, but what will it really show when you end up facing the "traditional" iw list and get blown to pieces?

I like the idea behind the list, just not quite the execution.

Nice ideas, bikers are sweet and the possibility of a Warsmith on a bike conversion is too funktastic to ignore.
Horde Armies will be troublesome for this list Your fire output at 24" plus is only
10xBoltgun shots, 2xlascannon shots, 4x Twin linked Lascannon shots and 6x Twin linked Heavy Bolter.
22 shots a turn is diddly squat in the grand scheme of things I have 500pt armies that can force more armour saves.

For fluff both of the land raiders have the forge world Iron warrior doors.
I dont own a single bike(it is the only thing I lack in the codex :oops: ).
Agenst horde I hope 58 strength 5 rending attacks on the the charge will tip the battle in my favor and since horde dont normally have alot to kill of land raiders with I should be able to diktate when and where the charge is coming. I do have the warsmith from GW, but he is to expencive for my tast and the sorcerer have the ability to kill of power fist armed sergants and HQ with gift of chaos. The liutenant has alot of killing potensiale and still is fairly cheep. It is not one of my best game winning armys by a long shoot, but I think it will make for a couple of fun games.
