Blog Wars 7 Tournament List - Iron Warriors

Hi all - this weekend is the 7th iteration of the worlds best 40K tournament; Blog Wars. All the Weemen have been to at least one of these Tournaments, but I am proud to say that I've been to every one so far.

Unfortunately Siph and Lord H wont be able to make it this time, but there seems to be a ton of guys going from my local gaming club Red Steel Preston - so there should be loads of familiar faces.

I will of course be taking my beloved Iron Warriors - in a list not too different from my Blog Wars 6 list to be honest...but that's mainly because I don't think I've actually played a game of 40K since Blog Wars 6...

HQ
Ezekiel Abaddon (I use his full name for a reason ;))

Troops
10 CSMs (Melta Gun, Missile Launcher, Power Sword)
Rhino (Havoc Missile Launcher)

10 CSMs (Plasma Gun, Missile Launcher, Power Sword)
Rhino (Havoc Missile Launcher)

10 Cultists

10 Cultists

Elite
Helbrute (T/L Lascannon, Missile Launcher)

3 Terminators 

Fast Attack 
2 Heldrakes (Hades Autocannon)

Heavy

3 Oblitorators (Mark of Nurgle)

3 Oblitorators (Mark of Nurgle)


So...twin Heldrakes and twin Obliterators...a little spammy I'll admit, but I'm hoping folks wont mind too much seeing as I haven't played in almost 6 months. And lets be honest, pure CSM are hardly a power army...

I also had some 'insight' on what some of the Red Steel guys were taking - and friendly it is not - and couple that with what are bound to be a few armies literally full of Leman Russ' and I don't feel too bad.

For a change I am taking a dataslate formation - Hellcult. This is two units of Cultists and a Helbrute. The Cultists give the Helbrute a 3+ cover save (by throwing themselves in front of fire) and get Fearless back in return.

The Heldrakes have lost the Baleflamers as well - whilst this might seem stupid, I've had a few games where a S6 AP3 flamer actually did very little (e.g. Termis/mech), but have found Vector Striking and then 4 S8 shots into rear armour extremely effective.

Can't wait to throw some army pics up - I don't want to spoil the surprise, but despite my lack of posts on the blog recently, I have been hard at work getting the Iron Warriors into shape and they are looking pretty cool...

See you all there.

I think twin heldrakes are almost mandatory in a csm army, doesn't mean id like to face them though :)
