I am a seasoned Black Leigon Player and have recently been asked to make another army for a tale of the four gamers style report. The other people taking part are a GW staff member and other seasoned veterans. I have been looking around through several codexs and have came back to the one i love (Chaos has embraced me to its bosom!!!).
I have been thinking of a cult of slaanesh army but those squads of sixs is too small (i cant put a 12 strong squad in a rhino!) and i filled my troop slots too quick. if i were to play a take and hold mission i would not have any scoring units. so looking through the book i have come to the iron warriors.
i have been thinking about what i would like to put in my army and have wrote a short list. we have 2500 points to play with.
I will be fighting necrons marines word bearers and tau so plasma
Lord. DP (half defiler half Dp with Speed/flight (jump pack) and obviously bionics)
Loads of marines (4 of 10 2Xsupporting fire 2XCC)
Raptors (infiltrate(its got to be done!!!))
Vindicator (daemonic monstrosity)
Basilisk (Use the hellcannon)
Havocs (roket launchers, autocannons )
im getting broadband soon so i may be a while until i get to reply to your thoughts.
I like the list it most likely should be in the army section but no worries i like the list just a few questions and what stagie would u favor
what are u doing with the Chosen how many and what gear
Oblitorator how many (i have learned they and a point sink never earn it back my opion ur choice i like them) Possesed what options
Oblits tend to be a very finess heavy unit.
You need them to shoot and not be shot at , as they are tough...but a squad of 10 marines rapidfiring on them doesnt' go over well.
Personally I like the idea of feilding 9 obliterators and focussing them on any unit that pisses me off. IW are very stand and shoot, so take what they give you...That being some absolutely mean heavy support. The vindicator is great for keeping them the hell away from you, The bassy is great for making them come close...If possible, try to keep your vindicator at your bassy's min range...They want to come in from the pieplates, they will most likely try to take a different way than near your vindicator.
ive wrote up a list but i do not have it on me.
Lord with flight
Lieu with kai
possesed with talons +rhino
NO Chosen (NO point in chosen unless you have 9 or 2 heavy weapons)
8 with 2 melta
10 with mega tooled asp in rhino
5 with rocket launcher
7 with infiltrate and 2 plasma
7 with melta and plasma (follows Lieu)
5 inf raptors
7 havocs with 4 rocket launchers
Defiler with smoke
Vindicator with all the Daemonics
Basilisk with indirect and smoke
all have asps except the havocs an rocket launcher squad
when i get the net in my room i will post my full list.
many people just use iron warriors to get 9 oblitorators and i want a seiging force after read the storm of iron. that book is excellant, if any one is getting a iron warroirs army or even just a chaos army it is ace.
i will use the infiltrating raptors to pick on devastators and the such. infiltrating units will support the main advance. artillary will pick on points heavy units and tanks.
thanks. i return soon
