    I want to begin an Iron Warriors army but am unsure on where to begin. Most of my opponents will be chaos space marines with armies of around 1000 pts.

    Any suggestions?

    Start out with some troops (IW box), a warsmith (if you want him in power armour rather than terminator armour), an Obliterator or 2, maybe a rhino.
    Later add interesting stuff, more Obliterators, a predator, some Havocs, that sort of thing. Don't forget to add troops as you progress though .

    I suggest you first read the BBB then, and after that the codex . After that we&#39;ll be able to get something constructive going.

    well, i also want to start an iron warrior army, 1000 pts. And yes, i have read the codex and such. So, i have some questions
    For such a small game how much heavey weoponry is good. is a baselisk and a defiler too much for that small a game?
    Also, is it better to have more groups of less troops, or less of more? By troops i mean standard chaos marine troopers
    i will be playing mainly against eldar and space wolves
    any advice?

    forget about tanks in such a small game. take only missile launchers for hvy weapons cause it can function as both a troop killer and also for taking out any tanks or heavily armoured units your opponent might have and use plasma weapons for your assault weapons. as for troops i&#39;d say a mix of a couple of max squads and a few smaller ones.

    Remember Iron warriors can take a basilisk and a vindacator as well as the normal heavy support choices, there also very cool looking. I use khorne and i only really use defilers and dreadnoughts.

    Well, you could take 1 tank in 1,000 points, but definately not more. Besides I don&#39;t like using 2 ordnance at a time, heavy firepower comes from other sources in my army. Use troops with heavy weapons (none of those minimized squads though&#33 and Havocs instead. Depending on your opponents, using lascannons or heavy bolters in tac squads and a Havoc squad with 4 missile launchers is typically quite effective.

    In fact, I use 2 tanks in my 1000 pts Iron Warriors army. I feel the Basilisk is a must in any Iron Warriors army, just because ordnance is very effective in such small battles, and any other size battles.

    I also take a predator for tank hunting.

    I might add, to some level of smugness, I have never lost a battle with my Iron Warriors. Ive come close.

    To start with Id get 2 boxes of troops, a warmsith, maybe an obliterator and a basilisk. Expand from there.
