    [1500] IW - Which is the Best?

    Still having trouble in deciding which list I think will do the best. Right now it seems to be a tossup between List 1 and List 3, with List 3 having more mobility and List 1 having more CC Prowess. The only thing I really dislike about List 1 is I only have 4 obliterators. Perhaps there is a way of combining all of these lists into one effective army, or perhaps there is one that is far superior to the other and could use some tweaking? Thanks.

    List 1

    HQ:

    1 Chaos Lord

    List 3: Where are the two rhinos attached in the heavy slots? One for the havocs...but the second?


    List one will prove to be the best overall list. It would work every better if you downgraded the turrets on your preds to the autocannon version, and then used the extra points towards giving your troops infiltrate (your h.q. too). As your troops presently stand, they don't seem to be doing much, that is, they have mid-ranged guns and an a.c. w/ a fist, and yet, they have to footslogg across the entire table. You can also drop the 4th oblit in order to gather points. I think this is a very important decision, because your troops are not working very well with the rest of your army right now. At the 1500 point marker, you really only need three oblits. Having four really hurts your point investment for the remainder of your army.

    Another thought for list one: Drop all your preds and take more oblits. Or, drop your preds and take more infiltrating troops- either another 8 man squad, or better yet, 2-3 6 man infiltrating squads w/ a pair of plasma guns. Your two havocs plus the oblits should be plenty when it comes to tank busting.

    All three lists need to drop at least 2-3 obliterators to be effective, IMO.
    Cheerio.

    Two units of two oblits perhaps? Or 2-1-1 as per list 1 and 3.

    On list 1 I would use autocannon havocs and rocket launcher havocs. You will be saving points on the secound squad due to dropping tank hunters and gain some ap3 str 8 for killing MEQs or some templates for hordes.

    As iron Warriors I think you should make use of the basilisk and perhaps give one squad of troops a lascannon.
