Hello all,

Thanks for taking the time to look at my post.

The title says it all, been reading some of the fluff on the internet and have decided that I want to give the Iron Warriors a go. I am looking from the masses what should go into the list. Thoughts were lots of havocs and CSM in transports, as there fluff states grind down everything with the long range and the get into the gaps with the transports and release the fury of the CSMs. Funding is not a factor, converting, or painting is not a problem either.

Thanks guys and gals for the support.

Ok no codex with me at the moment but here's a general Idea

Lord w/ termie armor, daemon weapon, combi melta

Sorcerer with MoS and lash

5 chosen, 4 melta guns

5 chosen 3 lascannons

4 termies, all with combi meltas (lord goes with these)

10 csms, melta gun and lascannon champ w/ PF, rhino w/ EA

9 csms, melta gun rhino with EA(sorcerer with these)

land raider with DP

2 oblits

2 oblits

so what you do is have the sorcerer lash from the safty of his rhino, and shoot everything to pieces! the lord an termies charge for some melee, and if wort comes to worst, so do the first CSM squad!

If you're going to do Iron Warriors, you really ought to read this:

It's not the best BL book ever, but it's still decently written and a great source of fluff for the Legion.

Vindicators are great, but in the previous Codex it mentions that Iron Warriors make heavy use of Obliterators so it might be worth bearing that in mind when you're working up lists; hopefully tonight will be less hellish than last night was in work so I can have a go at working up some Angry Stripy Guys lists if you like.

I've done this list for a friend of mine and is working good, not the most competitive list but sticks the IW theme and still hard to beat!
As Svartmetall said read Storm of Iron book, it'll be very helpfull in therms of fluff.

Hope this helps!

I like Mercer's list though I would change a few things. Such as the Daemon Princes being with marks of slaanesh and with whips.

Not only are they superior in close combat but they will pull targets into range of your melta guns. I would also take out the vindicator and give some fists to those aspring champions as well as maybe get another obliterator.

note: your probably thinken... shit, 5 obliterators! thats over a hundred bucks! just make your own with your bitz.

Svart, if your gunna take MoT on a DP, atleast give it 2 spells, because remember a DP has an invulnerable save anyway.

I'm suprised No-ones suggested a warsmith.

Wow, thanks guys got a lot to look through and figure out how to go about. Was wondering about the warsmith put it pretty clear that everyone agrees that a prince is the better buy or the GD. Thanks again for the ideas guys, will get my 30 CSM painted up first and then start adding in from there.

yeah, The main problem is, A warsmith is a Chaos Lord (iron warriors only), And if your planning on collecting more Iron warriors; It's a great, Fluffy Model to own.

But the problem is, I really don't think Lords are independant enough, so i stick them with Terminator Body Guards, or TEQ(Unless you've kept him in Power Armour, inwhich case you can put him with Troops)

Where as a Daemon Prince i find can just sort've wander around in cover then LeapFrog Buildings and assault, Monsterous Creatures Hurt in CC (As my mates eldar found out, When one match my DP went on a rampage killing a Farseer, 8 Dire Avengers, 5 Howling Banshees and finally about 3 Reapers, before he soaked up a little too much damage! :( )

Daemon Princes, Are fucking awsome.

Thanks. I won't take Lash Princes as I'm not keen on lash. And no fists on the champs because they end up being G.D fodder.

Anyway, we're not here to talk about my list so I'll leave it as that, but thanks for the thoughts anyway :)

Oh, Oblits, get some Chaos Terminators and add in heads from the CSM sprue; there's some bare faced heads in there and then just add green stuff and you've got plastic Oblits.
