    Iron Hands 1000pts/1500pts

    Yo dudes, just got myself a new SM army and started painting it up in Iron Hands colours (they look cool and are easy and quick to paint!). In my army i went for economy, so I only included things I think are going to be worth thier points. Here goes,

    HQ - 150

    Captain - relic blade and storm shield, melta bombs

    Troops - 550

    10 man tac squad - plasma cannon, plasma gun, sgt with combi plasma
    Razorback with twin HBs

    10 man tac squad - plasma cannon, plasma gun, sgt with combi plasma
    Razorback with twin HBs

    5 Scouts - BPs and CC weapons,sgt with melta bombs

    Heavy Support - 300

    Vindicator
    Predator destructor with HB side sponsons
    Thunderfire cannon

    total = 1000pts.

    _________________________________

    HQ - 150

    Elites - 305

    Dreadnought - multimelta,
    drop pod

    5 Sternguard Veterans -
    Razorback with twin HBs

    Troops - 755

    10 man tac squad - plasma cannon, plasma gun, sgt with combi plasma
    Razorback with twin HBs

    10 man tac squad - plasma cannon, plasma gun, sgt with combi plasma
    Razorback with twin HBs

    10 man tac squad - multimelta, flamer,
    drop pod

    5 Scouts - BPs and CC weapons,sgt

    Heavy Support - 300

    Vindicator
    Predator destructor with HB side sponsons
    Thunderfire cannon

    Total 1500 pts

    Its mainly a stand and shoot army, but the squads in razorbacks will zoom forward and unleash plasma, the scouts will outflank. Against horde armies I think this list will do pretty well but it may fall down against tank heavy armies.

    Any C and C is welcome.

    Thanks in advance!

    Aye that's the only problem I can see, it'll be hard to scratch a guard army's leman russ's

    And theres no master of the forge in the list, which is very iron hands fluffy. So you could get a master of the forge with a conversion beam, that'll add some anti-tank to your list.

    Maybe drop the thunderfire and the sponsons on the preds for the points, it'll still give you 2 tanks (albeit one's slightly less effective but now more mobile) and another S10 weapon.

    Also if you can find points for a meltagun in the tac squad in a drop pod that'll help your anti-tank woes as well as it'll be able to shoot as soon as it lands unlike the multi melta, I'd drop the captain's melta bombs for this.

    hope that helps!

    There seems to be a lack of anti tank firepower in this list, thought of swapping some plasma cannons out for a couple of lascannons, you already have a vindicator and a thunderfire cannon to sqat large troop formation (which they both so well as i use the same combination and its worked for me so far), or you could possibly upgrade the razor backs to Las cannons, this would help your anti tabk capability.

    IMO the first list the 1000 point list seems a little armour heavy (i only say this because i go for the armour light option myslef) theres only two tanks for your oponent to choose so all there AT firepower will be directed at your two tanks, meaning they woudl tend not to last very long, ive noticed that for armour to work you need either alot or none at all.

    hope my 2 pence has helped
