Though I think u used a bit many lascannons... that's my oppinion...
I mean, if you run in to a nasty amount of orcs or tyranids, I would think it could go easier if you had more heavy bolters andor autocannons...
OOOpppsss gotta go.... I'll comment later...
The reason for all those lascannons and missile launchers is that it's a list I'll use against DA (nope, STILL haven't played that battle :evil: ), against IG all squads get heavy bolters, and my Lieutenant's chosen unit will have 2 heavy bolters and an autocannon.
Hmmm now I understand why...
I have to agree on something, I both hate and love lascannons, what I mean is that they are my best friend and my worst enemy.
What? You guessed it... I also play Iron Warriors.
Anyway, I always put a Basilisk in my army(!).
They are kinda good at taking out nasty little...ermmm...all kind of things!
Well, lascannons are great against Necrons, I managed to Immobolize a Monolith on a Night Fight mission in the first round... thought he hit me once...that hurt!
And also they make great "no resurection allowed" kills...he he he..
Cheers....A monotone chant of "Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without,Iron within, Iron without...
Yeah the Basilisk RULES!!! With indirect fire it's a nightmare for your opponent, especially against IG in a night fight :twisted: . The first battle I used it was nightfight against IG, and it was my first time to use ordnance, and also the first time I had to guess a range. The first shot my basilisk fired was aimed at a bunch of infantry (nice big target, it would always hit something I thought), but it was 3 inches too far, then it scattered 4 inches or something, and blew up a leman russ battletank!!! Normally I always have trouble taking out AV 14 (I suck at armour penetration rolls, actually I suck at even hitting a tank with a lascannon)!
If you plan to use this list against DA I'd add some transport for your troops / HQ. Otherwise they'll just get killed by plasma cannons.
Maybe you should ditch the terminator armour on the Chosen. In my opinion it's a waste of point especially if your DA opponent packs alot of plasma
'But for corruption thou hast made Belial, an angel of hostility. All his dominions are in darkness, and his purpose is to bring about wickedness and guilt. All the spirits that are associated with him are but angels of destruction.
Well, I know what the other guy has in his army, and he has only 2 plasma cannons (each in a 5 man tac squad, he's not very creative), and an assault squad with some plasma pistols and that's it. Plus I'm used to fighting the IG so I tend to spread my models, meaning his plasma cannons won't do too much . I'll just shoot the units with plasma first :twisted: . And I like termies, they're good in close combat and the reapers can take out his 2 dreadnoughts.
yeah, thats a sound list, but imo ur tactical squads r too small and since u have no favoured god.... and whats MoCU?
I agree with your points...
First, rhinos or any other transport is a must... fast moving and can shrug off the worst of the shooting against it. Though watch out for nice jump pack units that like to block the exit points, I have experienced it... and that made me very sad :cry: ...
Terminators? Yeeee their good enough, though expencive. Either way they kick ass once they get to close combat(Not against choppa wielding orcs that is!). I always prefer to put a Champion with lightning claws in the squad... it makes other Termies say ouch befor they can say "Charge"!...he he ...
By the way, BorninDarkness... good thing you like basilisks.. he he they kill good...he he he .
If you have read the codex good I think you might have noticed about the iron Warriors that they may field a Basislisk AND a Vindicator. I enterprit this as both are allowed in the same army.
Anyway what do you think og Vindicators, personally I think they lack range for such a devestating weapon, they are doomed to be shot at...
Well I know my Troops squads are kinda small, but that's all I have painted right now (don't want to use too many close combat weapons in an IW army). Since it's mainly a 'stand and shoot' army I don't think I'll need rhinos now. BTW MoCU stands for Mark of Chaos Undivided, the Troops squads are multiples of 3 because that number has a special meaning in the organisation of IW, though it has no games effect whatsoever.
And Dragonslayero, I must admit I don't have a vindicator yet. It would be cool to have, because I really like the model so I definately want one, but I'm not sure how to use it. Since it'll draw a lot of fire it'll either need some upgrades like Mutated Hull and maybe Daemonic Possession, but that'll raise the points cost considerably. Alternatively, I could also field a stripped down Vindicator (no upgrades at all), and simply use it to draw fire away from my other tanks, and to keep the opponent away from a certain area. You'd be amazed how many players refuse to move a squad within 24" of a Vindicator or Demolisher
