A big-Iron well done to our own Chris (6thDegree) for his great placing at BW5, a friendly competition held this weekend, organised by Alex from "From the Fang".
And to help Alex out, he's been directing traffic to us to see pics of the 2nd best painted army at BW5 too... so I'm re-posting some pics of 6thDegree's Iron Warriors for all to see. Enjoy.

Hi all – it’s Blog Wars 5 this weekend and I thought I would share my list ahead of the tournament.
As normal for Blog Wars, it’s not a competitive list, although I hope it has a few mean units. It’s not actually the list I would like to take; ideally there would have been a pair of Heldrakes, but i) I don’t have time to paint a second model (with three days to go, I am still trying to finish the first one) and ii) I never realised how expensive CSMs are! The list in my head had a few big units of CSMs in transports, Heldrakes, lots of long-ranged high-power shooty and a solid assault unit or two…turns out that costs about 3K pts…
And I say hope because I haven’t actually had chance to play this list yet. Even worse, I have only had a handful of games with CSMs; which have been very hit and miss.
I do hope I might stand a shot at the Best Painted awards, but looking at the competition this year – it’s going to be tight!
Anyway – the list:
10x CSMs (Power Fist, Plasma Gun, Lascannon)
10x CSMs (Power Axe, CCW & BPs, Plasma Gun, VotLW)
Rhino (Havoc Launcher, Dirge Caster)
5 Terminators (Lightning Claw, 4x Power Fist, Reaper Autocannon, Combi-Plasma, Combi-Melta)
Helbrute (Reaper Autocannon, Missile Launcher)
Forgefiend (2x Ectoplasma, Extoplasma)
Havocs (2 x Autocannons, 2 x Missile Launchers, 2 x Flakk Missiles)
3 x Obliterators (Mark of Nurgle)
Aegis Defense Line (Comms Relay)
Total – 1848pts
With the missions being random on the day, I have tried to stay flexible; the list contains a nice about of anti-infantry, anti-armour, anti-air and Termi killing options, although I am admittedly light on troops (only three scoring units including Abaddon) and might be in trouble if I get caught by a CC oriented army. The Comms Relay will help me if I want to deep strike Abaddon, Termis and Obliterators into my opponents backfield and also gets the Hellturkey in ASAP.
Pics of the army will be up if I have time before Saturday – if not they will be after the event. Wish me luck!
