Armies played


  1. IRON WITHIN, IRON WITHOUT As with the similar tactica threads for other legions, this is aiming to be a one-stop-shop for Iron Warriors Tactics, combos and general tips for the 9th Edition Chaos Space Marine Codex. What rules combinations have you spotted? How will you build your lists? What units best leverage the Legion Trait and Stratagems? How have your games fared? Have you got any tips new players to the faction?
  2. I thought I'd share my Chaos army and various WIP things, hopefully to motivate myself to get some more painting done! I have a decent sized Iron Warriors army, as well as a goodly number of Thousand Sons, which I'll get pictures of later. My current projects are a start up Emperor's Children Warband, and a force of The Cleaved. The Cleaved: I made this Plague Marine years and years ago when I had a spare blob of Green Stuff. The armour was a test piece for the new foundations, its straight Dheneb with a heavy devlan wash. He got some nice armour scores, and some weeping joints I abandoned them for a very long time, until the release of the new codex, whereupon I made a couple of plasma gunners to come later. I also have 5 of these guys that will be geting the cleaved treatment. My very first tank, well over 10 years old with an awful splotchy (but thin) nurgle paint job, back when the mark of Nurgle gave your vehicle +1AV all round. Rather than give it to the Iron Warriors, I've honoured it's heritage and dedicated it to the cleaved. The marine on the back was originally an ultramarine, but the blue wouldnt look good with the colour scheme. Green, however would, and seeing as there will probably be a few new DA players soon...and also to annoy Skink a little. The Nurglings on top need some detailing, as well as a few other bits and bobs, but I consider it table worthy after a weekend's work. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- With the new codex, I jumped at the chance to finally get some Slaaneshi marines under my belt. Noise marines with an 80's hair metal vibe. I wanted a full Sonic blaster squad, buy only had one and the blastmaster, so time to make up some stuff: Dude doing a squealy blaster solo, and regular blaster dude. You cant quite see the detail, ut they have hides/skin GS'd onto their leg armour, and regular dude has GW barbed wire wrapped around his thigh. Blastmaster and DeathKorg. You cannot have a band without a synth, so this guy got made up. The idea is that the bolter fires, gets some funky rhythm attached to it as it goes along the barrel, then hits the opponent with some music that they've probably never heard of. Noise Champion: Since squad leaders cannot currently have blasters, and in the hope that they can someday, I made something in between a combi bolter and blaster, the backpack (from the classic NM) and belt amp can also double as a Doom Siren. Smile:
  3. Hey all, Newcomer to the forums here, although I've been a long time lurker and admirer of some of your excellent works. I've decided to take the plunge and start my own post regarding my humble Iron Warriors collection. It is an amalgamation of various armours, models, themes and timelines (so please don't expect any clinical accuracy regarding 30k/40k lore with the models themselves). Feedback welcome as always - see if you can tell who's inspired some of these miniatures! Brother Ortraxes Brother Ortraxes was there, all those years ago. He had seen it. He had seen the crumbling edifices of Imperial sovereignty, the once mighty bastions of the Imperial Palace laid low by the brilliance of their lord, and the cowardice and failure of the other legions. He had witnessed the birth of a dying emperor, and the damnation of his legion into the miasma of the warp. Ortraxes' rage had been kindled in those final moments, turned inwards. It had turned tempered iron into a brittle, unyielding mockery of its former self. He had become less than what he was, a bestial, snarling and feral member of the IVth legion. He was no longer governed by reason or pride or the honour of his legion. Ortraxes wished only to descend into the crucible of combat, where he could lay waste to the followers of this new, marooned, mongrel emperor. He would have his wish. Breacher Squad Themis Iron. A brittle and fragile metal, unless it is tempered and honed and utilised in its correct manner. Breacher Squad Themis had once been nearly twenty strong. At the time of the siege of the Imperial Palace, there had been twelve of them. Now, just five remained. They had been used as a blunt spearhead. They had been used to drive back the fury of the loyalist astartes, to venture into the ash covered wastes, to weather the fusillades of bolter, las and volkite fire and push back the vengeance of the emperor. Their panoplies had grown accustomed to their wearers. Each one had been modified, improved, and altered to best suit the needs of the occupant. Each one had been assembled from whatever pieces of equipment the IVth could muster in the eye of the heresy. Hastily assembled suits of armour that, whilst tailored to the occupant, was the best that could be done with the lot that had been given to them. Legate Acastus Acastus had not wished to be leader. He had not wished to have the mantle of responsibility thrust upon him so. When the former legate was conflagrated in a whirling maelstrom of flame and death, with nought but his charred remains to bear witness to his life, Acastus fell back on his training. He had pushed the opening. His bolter had grown heavy in his arms, and his shield was twisted and buckled from the torrent of abuse that had been directed at him. His left arm, long trained to bear the heavy adamantite shield, had grown limp and useless. But still, still he had marched forwards. Acastus' bolter had screamed vengeance at the Imperial defenders, barking death and terror as the inexorable Iron Warrior strode forwards. Acastus, through his stoicism, through leading by example, had earned the title of Legate. A title that rested uneasily on his brow. Brother's Acestes and Urian Brother's Acestes and Urian were unusual in the IVth legion. Born from the same village, they had been rivals since childhood. When Perturabo inducted them into the vaunted halls of the IVth legiones astartes, their rivalry became muted. Dulled by the realisation that, for all their pride and scorn for each other, they were but dust in the vast machinery of the great crusade. After the dropsite massacre, Acestes had been fortunate to acquire a highly advanced Iron Hands mark III helmet. The enhanced optics, coupled with the high levels of protection and durability that mark III offered, had rendered it a sought after trophy, and one that Acestes jealously guarded. Urian, in contrast, sought only to outlast Acestes. Whilst dulled and dwarfed by the machinations of the galaxy at large, his pride and stubborness had rendered him unable to see past Acestes' shadow. The silhouette of Acestes was one that drew tempered loathing from Urian. He vowed to outlast Acestes, and to have Acestes know that it was he, Urian, who was the better of the two. Brother Tiege The melta that Tiege wields has been heavily altered and customised, to mark the enemy and burn fear into their psyche. Brother Tiege had spent time with the Dark Angels legion, presumably where he had acquired their signature helm. Little is known about Tiege, having spent the majority of his service prior to the heresy on a fringe planet, dutifully guarding against the agonies of boredom. Brother Parthenios Parthenios was an outlier amongst the Iron Warriors. He had been given his name after his ascension to an astartes, owing to his unusually young recruitment age. Despite the kinly mocking that his brothers bestow upon him, he remains steadfast in his duty to dispense death to the enemies of the IVth. Having a particular affinity for grenades and chemical warfare, Parthenios has a surplus of explosive armaments adorning him for every engagement. ______________________ That's all for now guys - let me know what you think! Big praise to Apologist - it was his Iron Warriors blog on here that got me back into the hobby.
  4. So I signed up for the CoC MKIV a few days ago and as the rules rightfully demand I'm opening my WIP-thread here. My plan until the end of the Call ist to finish the following models for my Iron Warriors army, which are waiting for paint on my desk (maybe some more if I finish these really quick): 1. 1 Defiler with a Reaper Autocannon and a Havoc Launcher 2. 5 Chosen with 4 pairs of Lightning Claws and a Plasmagun 3. 5 Chosen with 2 Plasmaguns, 1 Powerfist, 1 Lightning Claw and Combiflamer and 1 Powerfist and Plasmapistol Of course, these aren't really optimised unit configurations, but they are the miniatures that stood on my desk and I organised them into legal entries for the Call. I hope that's ok as far as the rules go Below you can see the pictures of the actual models. I'm going to start with the Chosen (some still have some old colours visible, so there is some need for another session of base-coating) and am planning to paint the Defiler whenever I might want to do something different than Poweramour
  5. After seeing and lurking in Dragonlover's thread on lurking I though I'd try and motivate myself to start posting more, even if it's just a small update in this thread. So the main aim will be to show the progress as I paint my Loyalist Emperor's Children. Which will hopefully also stop me from getting distracted by other projects on hold. But we'll see how long I last with just the one. So onto a couple pictures. First up is my Leviathan I completed a couple months ago. I know it's not 'new' but it shows what is complete for the project so far. There is also some infantry but after trying Retributor Gold they've been moved back onto the paint table to be updated. I've also recently completed my Loyal Son the Praetor for the Legion. I couldn't resist the new Blood Angel Praetor, and thought, if the Blood Angels can use our Palatine blades, I'm going to claim the Praetors So what's currently receiving paint which shouldn't take too long to appear is the updated and expanded first Palatine, and Tactical Squad supporting a Primus Medicae. Then onto lots of support marines, while doing everything I can to avoid painting Drop Pods. So, back to lurking while painting.

    Finally "finished" my 1st Legion Tactical Squad for my Iron Warriors.
  8. This will be my thread for my Iron Warriors. I started this thread for myself, partly because I was going off topic in my own thread for my Word Bearers here... http://www.bolterandchainsword.com/topic/305821-committing-to-word-bearers/page-2?do=findComment&comment=4668714 So that's settled. I have a bunch of mk3 marines from BoP. Some of which I will make Iron Warriors. 20 for now. I plan to get up to a 750 point grand co. These first 20 marines will be a 10 man havoc squad with 4 autocannons (converted from BoP heavy bolters) and 2 x 5 man with plasma. Need to aquire and build 5 raptors with 2 meltas, (I know bikes are recommended but I just don't like them) and some terminators... prefferably from calth... to build my elite... also need a PA chaos lord with a big mace... my aux will be the munitorum containers. (I think I posted the list somewhere already for the 750 point grandco) Moving beyond 750. I plan to add some cheap fortifications, home built defensive line with comms and the various barricades, wire and tank traps for a start. Bump the Termies up to 5 and a chaos lord in terminator armour, which will nicely come from a single calth box. Bulk the "tacticals" each to 10 with 2 plasmas and add 4 lascannon havocs in a tenner some how... and definitly a warsmith guiding some oblits, but... I realy don't like oblits models... my plan is instead to follow in purturbo's footsteps and build robots to do the job instead, just no clue how to do it yet, only certain that they should look like smaller iron circle robots with WAY MORE DAKKA.
  9. In the spirit of wanting to get back into engaging with Warhammer 40.000 again I've decided to try and play Kill Team, the smaller scale seems to make it an easier cell to my buddies in the local area so I can actually get games in. It also, hopefully, gives me the excuse to plan and execute a whole project and have something "finished" at the end of it. A feeling that is as elusive to me as it is to many other wargamers out there I'm sure. I settled on Chaos for several reasons. For one I am a fan of chaos and have played them in the past, meaning there are plenty of bitz around to try and make something unique. Also with chaos I never feel any reluctance to fight against anyone else based on any narrative preferences, I am one of those that never liked when my Ultramarines fought against say, Salamanders. The new Chaos Space Marine kit is also really nice, and I've not bought anything GW since before those came out. So I dug up an old gift card I got for christmas and ordered a box. Iron Warriors were picked largely because I really like the scheme, and the industrial theme works well with the miniatures I had around that could work like cultists. I am still waiting for the big boys, so I've been doing some slow work on some bases and the cultists.
  10. So a few months back, a friend of mine convinced me to get into 30k with him... down the rabbit hole I fell. Originally he wanted to do Ultramarines, so I picked a heretic legion to oppose them. I've always liked Iron Warriors, and reading more of their fluff... bitter, ruthless warriors willing to sacrifice any number to achieve their end? I approve. Bring on the nihilistic paranoid super soldiers. Now he's decided to do word bearers though, my guys are... apparently loyalist Iron Warriors. We will see. I painted a few test models back around christmas while waiting for my Calth box to arrive. The last few months have been slow going, with real life and other gaming projects getting in the way, but I'm once more motivated, so hopefully I can make this stick. Test model on test base, finished yesterday. http://i616.photobucket.com/albums/tt243/Magos_Kasen/received_1692471784375578_zpsfpvu1irp.jpeg Two other test models, based. Just need some touch ups. All the markings are hand painted... not really happy with the legion symbol. http://i616.photobucket.com/albums/tt243/Magos_Kasen/Models/IMG_20160222_2259512_zpstwowdpgf.jpg http://i616.photobucket.com/albums/tt243/Magos_Kasen/Models/IMG_20160222_230012_zpso6hqhqiv.jpg Feedback is very appreciated, let me know any comments and criticism :)
  11. Dust lay across the fallen figure, drawing white streaks across the grubby armour. It lay in dry eyes. He had been dead and staring before the explosion had draped him in his stony shroud. Not long before, mused Yavuz. He squatted on his haunches next to the corpse, his own face pinched. Resting his hands on his knees, he paused a moment to enjoy the stretch in his hamstrings and lower back. His armour fizzed. The pitiless light threw stark shadows; highlighted the cracked plate and skin scaly with rad-wash. Above the distant sound of small arms fire and shrieking shells, Yavuz heard footsteps. Considered, but not wary. Konstantin stopped besides the squatting warrior, cradling his boltgun. He pursed his lips. 'Nikephoros?' Yavuz nodded once in reply. 'You were not close.' Konstantin continued, his tone disinterested. Yavuz might have smiled. 'No.' It was an odd statement for his squadmate to make, particularly given the circumstances. He reached forward unhesitatingly, drawing his combat blade and moving to one knee in the same movement. The silver edge cut easily through the scalp, lodged, was freed with a slight grunt. Yavuz cradled Nikephoros' head, his face pinched as he wrenched upwards. A crackle of particularly unusual gunfire – Mass-accelerator? Volkite? – accompanied the motion. Yavuz placed the top of Nikephoros' skull gently to one side, then tilted the head to let the hard light in. He raised an eyebrow, almost in surprise. Despite the rad-count, it was pink, unspoiled. Konstantin knelt beside him, placed his boltgun down as more members of the squad filtered in. Yavuz slipped two fingers into the brainpan, lifted out a glistening grey-pink chunk and placed it in his mouth. His thoughts might have shamed him once. Weakness. This was the first meat he had tasted since planetfall. By the Warmaster, it was good. Konstantin could not hide his hunger, either. Yavuz detected a rise in his heartbeat, saw him lick his lips. Yavuz placed Nikephoros' head back on the floor, then sat back, meditatively. The warriors ranged around the area remained watchful, as Konstantin flipped open the dead Astartes' pouches for ammunition, his expression impossible to read. The distant gunfire swelled with the wind, then fell away. An eerie whine sounded. An irrelevant siren. Who was it for? Who could not have understood the danger by now? Yavuz's skin blanched, then flushed. He sat, cross-legged, still. While they waited, Konstantin used his combat blade to scrape away the few honour marks on the dead man's armour; used the blade in a rocking motion to make a crude 'X' across the squad and company markings; specialist litany, his oath-parchment – everything except the Legion's dead-skull identifier. His expression was unreadable, his muttering almost inaudible. Finally, he jabbed the point of the knife into the corner of the eye socket of the Legion symbol. Pulling back on the blade, he levered out the black onyx. He placed it to one side, then repeated the process on the other eye socket. His movements were careful, steady. A shell, much closer, made him wince, but he continued after a moment. He placed the two near-circles in his hand, a pool of glossy black, then used the handle of his blade to break them, cracking them into shards. With a rolling motion, not unlike a pestle in the mortar of his hand, he ground them to grit. Finally, he held them over Nikephoros' face, and let the grains spill through his gauntlet, covering the eyes. He paused briefly, looking at the fallen warrior. After a short time, he gave a dismissive grunt, reached out for his boltgun, and stood. An intake of breath made him look back at his sergeant, still sitting cross-legged. Yavuz opened his eyes. 'I... know the area.' he said, hesitantly. 'The Fists are... that way.' +++ + [appended inload 270416] + +++ +++ Palatarch Yavuz Phalangite Konstantin Phalangite Radoslav Phalangite Koinos Hyoidite Aganthan +++
  12. Hey guys I hadnt seen one of these up for the IW, and was considering doing these guys next. I don't yet have Extermination to look at as we go, however have read the rules. What do you think works well with these guys? Do you think the Warsmith rule actually confers much advantage/worth taking over other fluffy characters eg Master Of the Signal for example when zoning in Artillery or a champion for those pesky duels. Are these guys a bit of a one-trick pony with their Termie spam + artillery combo being the only UNIQUE thing about them (yes i understand you can build others without the rite of war, but I am more getting at are there a variety of different playstyles their special units equipment unlock or just one) Perturabo is boss. I actually think he is one of my fav Primarchs as far as being fairly decent at buffing his army, has fantastic statline, great equipment, and can hold his own very well against other Primarchs. What do people think of the Havoks? best way to equip them?
