    *looks at title* Wow... that was the best description i could think of? :wacko:

    Anyway, after 2 months of reading battle reps, army lists, playing games w/ proxy models, and going insane from trying ot make a choice, I have decided to play Iron Warriors.

    I want to make a small army list of what Im going to buy first. Do you think its a good start? I play against BA, IG, and DA. So im hoping to be able to take any of these guys, but usualy we will play 2v2.

    UNRELATED: I think it would be cool to use a former DA ie. Cypher, is there somewhere to download the rules, and would it be fluffy to use him in a IW army (if i can.

    Heres the list.

    HQ:
    Chaos Lord (60) - Termy Armour (25) 2 Lightning Claws (30)
    Total: 115

    Troops:
    8 Chaos Space Marines w/ Bolter (112) - 1 Lascannon (15)
    Total: 127

    8 Chaos Space Marines w/ Bolter (112) - 1 Lascannon (15)
    Total: 127

    Heavy Support:
    Basalisk
    Total: 125 (?)

    Grand Total: 494 points.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I would suggest a obliterator cult before you really load up on the heavy weapons. They give you a very powerful option that&#39;s good against almost everything. Also at 500 points I would suggest dropping both lascannons and putting a missle launcher in one squad and a multimelta in the other. You&#39;re not going to run into enough 14 armor to really justify the lascannons and a missle launcher gives you some antiswarm stuff.
    And drop the full lord for a Lt. and just give him terminator armor, pw, plasma pistol or daemonic fire and some other little goodies like spiky bits or wings. A terminator armored lord may be all fine and good but he&#39;s not going to be that effective all by himself. A single lascannon shot through his skull and he&#39;s toast. If you give him a plasma pistol and a powerweapon you can attach him to a squad and use their wounds to absorb the damage. Plus you&#39;ll have another weapon that can punch through vehicles/terminators.

    Try this for Iron warriors

    (I&#39;m not sure on point costs)

    Chaos LT. : PW, Plasma pistol, terminator armor, mutation (if there&#39;s points for it)

    8 C. Marines, Aspiring champ, BP and CCW, 1 multimelta

    8 C. Marines, 1 Missle launcher, 1 Plasma cannon (correct me if you can&#39;t do this)

    Your choice of vehicles/bikes/more marines/havoc squad/dreadnought to fill up the remaining points.

    Stick the Lt. with the CC squad and move them in, providing long range firepower with your other troops. If you have the spare points give your aspiring champ a powerweapon, which will end up being quite a few powerweapon attacks (5/6 lord, 3/4 champ)

    At the top of the chaos forum is an IW tactica, read that one first as it will help you choose much better.

    As for the advice that Aoxes gave you, don&#39;t such a tactic is for powergamers only.

    I play IW myself so if you have any problem or questions just PM me, but don&#39;t aks for stats
