Is there anything special about the Iron Warriors Warsmith? I see him in blister occasionally and he looks like a cool model from the GW page, but does he have any extra stat lines? I've looked around and can't seem to find any. If not, what does he function as... HQ, or just a regular troop?
The Warsmith is what the Iron Warriors use instead of Daemon Princes. It has the same statline as a Lord or Lieutenant, it just looks more robotic because the Iron Warriors don't get daemonic gifts the same way, they become more like machines the more daemon blessed thay are
theres no real difference between him and any other lord model if you wanted to use it beside his look and the servo arm.
it just gives a better flavor looking lord or LT for iron warriors. and if for some reason they wanted to take the servo arm then they dont have to steal from an imperial model for it.

I have a warsmith because it's my favourite model for Chaols ever, and there used to be special rules in 2nd Edition I believe, but they were integrated into the new Codex: CSM (See: Servo Arms).

Send me a hello if you remember me.
My advice to you my friend is to read Storm of Iron. After reading that you will understand the true power of the Warsmith. I dont collect IW, but after reading that book i worship the Warsmith. The way he is described is just amazing, he has such a powerful aura surrounding him.
I cannot explain how ace he is, just believe me when i say it!
There are rules for servo arms in the IW part of the chaos codex.
On a side note, I'm reading Storm of Iron at the moment and its awsome.

Speaking of which, when does this new codex make it's arrival? And what models will be replaced?
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
As for models, nobody is really sure. There's a particularly common rumour that the Possessed models will be recalled and replaced (hopefully!), and I fully expect Terminators and some Cult Marines to be replaced. Other than that, I can't say.
