Hi Chaosspawnking,

What's your plan with this army? I can see the venomcrawlers running with the discolord, and I can see oblits and termies deep-striking in while the CSM camp on objectives, but I can't see what the Masters of Possession and greater possessed add - they won't keep up with the venomcrawlers, and if your Daemon engines get destroyed then all these characters become exposed and very vulnerable.

First things first, CSM are CP-hungry, so you'll need a battalion. Split one of those CSM squads into two squads of five so that you have three squads, and fit those into a Battalion with the MoPs.
Secondly, I'd run one of those MoPs as a Sorcerer to grant you access to Dark Hereticus powers - your list wants warptime and possibly prescience.

Thirdly, why Mark of Khorne? It doesn't really offer you any benefits in terms of opening up useful stratagems - Iron Warriors tens to work well with a lot of firepower. Mark of Slaanesh and Endless Cacophony will work better to allow a unit to fire twice - prime target would be your termies, or maybe the oblits. Better to treat the termies as a deep-striking shooting threat - even with a re-roll the number of times you make that 9" charge can be depressingly few.

Fourthly, your obliterators would work better as a single squad of three - that way they derive greater benefit from the Iron Warriors stratagem to allow them full re-rolls on the stats of their fleshmetal guns - I would field a spearhead detachment comprising two venomcrawlers, one unit of oblits, and a discolord.

These are just thoughts on how to make the most of what you've got - I'd need to have a bit more of a think before suggesting what else to add to bring it up to 2000pts. I'm still not sure what's the best use for your greater possessed - normally you'd field them to run a big blob or two of regular possessed, but there are better legions to run that type of list - if you want to stick with Iron Warriors you should stick to your strengths - I.e. an overabundance of firepower!

Do you know what your sin is, Malcolm Reynolds?
Ah hell, I'm a fan of all seven.
But right now, I'm gonna have to go with wrath,

Hi Drakeslayer

this army list was designed to use every model I had.
I was thinking maybe another starter set then I could go with 2 units of 3 obliterators , 3 venom crawlers and 3 x 5 man CSM with autocannons to provide covering fire. this will also let me form a chosen squad with the 3 plasma guns if its worth it.
the plan with the greater possessed and the MoPs were to go with the obliterators as a Daemon Marine blob, but that was because I forgot that obliterators can deep strike.
The MoPs are there to add HQ's but if I can use them as either sorcerers or priests I think that would be better.


They haven't been painted yet so which chapter to use is up for discussion, I just fought it would fit with the theme of daemon engines. I might go with slaanesh then as as you have pointed out it would be better synergy.
