    Iron Warriors 2000- too much dakka for one hand!

    Hi All, so, I'm just playing around with ideas for chaos army variants that sound like fun.
    I'm considering branching out to IW, but not the conventional bassilisk/vindicator route.

    Some may be familiar with my Hot Plasma doom list I posted previously, this one's similar, only I'm going for mass volume of fire. Check it out.

    HQ:Lord: D.Flight, Kai gun, P.Sword, 120

    Elites:
    7 obliterators(1-3man squad, 2x 2man squad) 630pts.


    6x 6-man squads MoCU Plasmagun/Heavy bolter, AC with Powerfist = 798

    4x havoc Squads , 4 heavy bolters, MoCU tank hunting, 6-man = 592

    2000pts

    that's 90 str5 shots per turn by my count(I've been known to count incorrectly so don't hold me to it)
    that's 60 hits,
    T3- 50dead/turn
    MEQ: 20 dead/turn average
    Terminators: 5 dead per turn average

    Not bad, not bad at all.

    as my alternative list, I'd like to field something "extreme" where its just lopsided one way or another and see how it does... what do you all think?

    Heavy bolters with tank hunters? Why not give them infiltrate so they can setup at an advantageous location? 7 Obliterators ought to be enough AT...

    7 lascannon shots a turn that can move and shoot. will be plenty for that at most 2 predators, or land raiders or such. anything av 12 or lower has 48 shots waiting for it.
    This army will have the most headaches against a armored company match up, eldar and tau skimmers(especially hammerheads)with that much redundancy of firepower, I expect my obliterators to pull up the slack in high armor targets and/or have my firepower spread out throughout the board so I can take shots at side/rear armor.

    I considered infiltrate, but its not necessary: range is more limited, stuff they will shoot at will be closer and generally be in LOS. With so much redundancy I will be able to close off any/all fire lanes pretty quickly and easily without infiltrate, and.. I just didn'thave the points to toss into it.

    Good suggestions, though, thanks.

    There is nothing like massed Heavy Bolter-fire. So many shots it's bound to kill whatever comes in your way, but shouldn't this be in the army list section?

    It must have been in the main forum before..

    I must say buddy, I prefer the Plasma List of Doom.

    But then again, i seem to have something for plasma.

    Heh heh, that list was damn cool.

    Yeah, between the two lists, I'm liking the plasma doom hot lov'n myself, but though I'd get some opinions on this and brood over it.

    Well, if you are going for massed H.Bolter shots, then why not branch into IG? Being an IW player for the past few years, I find lists like that to be very boring to play with. You are doing nothing but rolling dice.

    It's a fun concept judging by the stats, but I would seriously not recommend you building an army and wasting your hard earned $$$.
    Cheerio.

    What do you do with other armies? *blink* Even with a Plasma-heavy, or a not-heavy army, you'll be doing little but rolling dice... even mixing Autocannons, Lascannons, etc. etc.
