Hello all and welcome to he prodject log of my iron worriors breach force.
I no what your all thinking..."great another iron worrior army with more guns tanks and oblierators than u can shake a stick at", well i hate to disapoint but its not a list of that sort at all. The idear behind the list was how do the iron worriors fight once inside a city or citedel. So the list came to be and it is as follows:

HQ

Chaos lord, terminator armour, kia gun, d strength, d rune, essence, resiliance servo arm, power weapon and the mark of undivided.

ELITES

5 chosen terminators, ark of chaos undivided, 2 upgraded to have power fists, 1 reaper autocannon, move through cover and a champion with deamon strength power weapon and servo arms.

Obliterator

Obliterator

TROOPS

15 undivided marines, move through cover cover and a champion with strength, power weapon, servo arms and melta bombs.

15 undivided marines, move through cover cover and a champion with strength, power weapon, servo arms and melta bombs.

5 undivided marines, infiltrate and 2 melta guns

HEAVY SUPPORT

Chaos dreadnought, multimelta, heavy flamer, mutated hull abd extra armour.

I no this list looks like it wont work and probably wont, but iv always thought iron worriors are a cool legion but iv gotten fed up with the bad rep they seem to get from all players who dont have an imaginaton and play them because they feel they have to make the beardest army going instead of an army thatif fun for both you and ypu oponent to play with/against.

So enough of my preaching and onto what i plan to do with the army. My intitial idears were to do them ver tipical iron worriors with bionics all over the place wich dont get me wrong is very cool but just not for me. Instead i felt that they deserved a more uniformed look instead of the "rabble" look that most chaos armies i see seem to have. To acheive this i pln on useing the Red scorpion torsos and heads and keeping legs relitivly plain. Im als looking formward to sculpting the lord and converting the dreadnought to look pre herecy. Other than that im still lookining for all idears.

Thanks for reading the essay above i no it was a killer...all coments and critersims welcome.

I've always been a fan of IW. I think that Graham McNiel has developed a really strong theme for them in both "Storm of Iron" and in "Dead Sky, Black Sun", both books are highly recommended. I currently have an IW army- still wrapped in plastic. My list is similar to yours. With the same thought in mind. "What would they do once the fortress was breached."

However, I think that a lack of bionics goes against who they are. But, I'm looking foward to seeing your ideas and army develope anyway. Maybe it'll even inspire me enough to get my own going once my Armored Co. is completed...even though Elysians keep singing out to me, and loudly.

Haha yeah i no the books were very insperational and im sure that binoics will find there way in sumwair its more that i wanna try and get them not looking so rebotic...admitently bionics look cool but at the same time if you were to go over the top on it like alot of iron worrior players do i think it startes to look tacy...this is persnal prefrence tho.

Looks really good, I am looking forward to see him done. If that is really only your second attempt, you should be very proud.

I know this isna't a thread to comment on your list, but what I have to say does affect your models. Unfortunately Servo Arms are not allowed to be combined with Terminator Armour, as they do not have a (*) next to them. Also models in Terminator armour may not have 'move through cover'.

Aside from that, I really like how your Lord is coming, and I think perhaps you should model the servo arm even if he cannot use it.

thanks for that note on the list has been noted many thanks i noticed it shortly after posting it. I still intend 2 use servo arms on the charicters in terminator armour even if its just to represent deamonic mutation. Tho its good to no people look out for mistakes like that.

Cheers Chris

Thats some very nice sculpting for your second time.
I like that you arent going for a extremely tank heavy force. It seems more original that way. I have always loved IW and almost started them in the beginning.

A number of players seem to forget once a bastions is breached you still have to overcome the survivors. IW are chaos Marines - whilst not quite the close combat killing machines Bezerkers may be they can certainly handle themselves up close and personal with the elite of 40K's close combat specialists if fielded right with the right options and equipment.

My IW this summer for FoMV have been quite assault orientated featuring bike units, close combat sqauds in Rhinos and the past few games I've had have even had Raptors. 3 units not neccessarily on the usual IW 'menu' its surprised a few opponents especially my furious charging assault teams.

Interesting project you have here, as an Iw player of 'a few years' I'll look forward to seeing the fruits of it :D

In my IW army I always used at least two units of marines with close combat weapons in rhinos. That didn't stop me from taking four heavy support choices.

Your list looks interesting and I look forward to your army pictures.

Well im back you lucky people iv picked up more green stuff and more images will be finding there way to you for about weds i hope. Iv noticed alot of you are talking about close combat squads and i no i didnt specify in the list weather the squads were having closecombat weapons or bolters and truth be told they are going to have a mix of closecombat weapons and bolters so they can play ofensivly or defensivly as the codex allows for a mix of weapons and this is somthing that i have not seen done at all in my gameing experiance again it may or may not work but its that little bit diffrent and opens up windows for some new gameing startergies for me to try out.

Is that an ass cannon? In a chaos army? WTF?

Otherwise your sculpting skills are very nice, hope to see it finished soon.

The occasional punctuation would be nice too.


As far as bloke goes, the Assault cannon as Kai gun... works. Yes, I think it does.

Yes your right it is an assaultcannon barrel(s), as the description of the kain gun is a big bolter wich i thought was a bit dull.....so i desided to go with a more experimental looking weapon. Another reason for the use of it wa sthe background in the codex were its says they hav lernt to recreat imperial technolagies ect and well i thought it looked kool.
