For 1,000 pts, I'd use a Lieutenant rather than a Lord, give him a power weapon of some sort, maybe a lightning claw, and drop the Daemonic Armour and maybe Resilience too. Personally I think the servo-arm is way too expensve for what it does so I never use it, but that's up to you.

Terminators are good, expand them to 6 (with 2 Reapers) or larget battles.

Obliterators rock! You'll want more than just one.

The troops squads are too small IMO, I'd use 9 man squads rather than just 6.

I'd give the predator a twin-lascannon in the turret to make it completely anti-tank, but this is a personal preference.

Now the Vindicator and Basilisk are both good, but I wouldn't use them both in such a small game. I think the Vindicator would be the best choice in small games, give it a Mutated Hull and you got yourself one scary tank!

I hope that helped :) . You could check out my own Iron Warriors lists in this forum for more ideas.

the army did well but i still lost due to the squad with bolters not killing a pred for the entie game and were slowly wiped out.

the vindicator was the bane of his army untill his deamon prince got close.


the funny thing was he was expecting 4 heavy supports so he kitted out with tank killing gear and i only took the 1 :lol:
he dident expect 3 oblitarators

all in all i enjoyed the game which matters and ill be slowly starting iron warriors after my hols

Hmm, I usually field 6 Obliterators myself, but that's in battles of 2000 pts and over. I hate it when ppl minimize on troops like that, especially if they play IW because that gives the rest of us a bad name.

[/QUOTE] my opponant is using chaos nurgel mariens

For your opponent what type of army list does he have? For nurgle(as a semi-good player for them) I learned that alot of people go for transports, powerfists, power weapons(for asp. champs), and sometimes they give the lord the manreaper to hack the living crud out of weak troops in one CC phase. Your list sounds goodto start out w/ but also do quick research on the nurgle b/c of the nurgle's toughness, so alot can servive auto weapons(reapear autocannon>AP 4; heavy bolter, etc.) you might want to use more heavy weapons and blast weapons while having good CCW capabilities so that they can withstand a chance of nurgle assault! That is just my opinion, it is just some advice of how to beat the GOD OF DECAY!

-------------
"I am the Traveller of Nurgle
I am the Herald of Nurgle
I am the Host of the Destroyer Hive
Fear the God of Decay
Let him bring disease and rot to all that appose him
Death to the False Emperor
LET THE GALAXY BURN AND DECAY!
HAIL TO THE GOD OF NURGLE!"

u should drop the lords servo arm and combi give em another klaw. give the shooty squad 2 plas and the assault squad 2 plas pists. and for pertuarabo's sake, get that bass back and combine it with something like a defugler or the vindi. and dont forget, oblits should be seen as support troops rather than an army of their own (except when im using 9 in my 2000 list :D )
