This is a combined approach force, that I enjoy, a distinct firebase with a distinct assault element. This army will largely be facing Astra Militarum. Idea is the Cultists, Lord, Zerkers with Apostle in Rhino's surge forge into the guns, while my own 4 Anti tank Units take out priority targets, The sorcerer buffing the Havocs.

I'm not sure where the Warpsmith should go, logically with the preds is a good choice but there is something to be said for a flamey-melta punchy cursey machiney chap in a tank armies face. The Alternative ofc. would have 2 Maulerfiends instead of Predators freeing up some points and making the choice for me, but then is that enough firepower?

 

Army: Iron Warriors, 2000 points, 8 Command points.

Detachment 1 - Battalion (3CP)

No it's the keep the points cost down, they are there for their aura's and abilities not their combat potential. I would leave the Lord with no weapons bar stock if it wasn't on the model (I mean I could always drop it to a power sword), as his role isn't choppy, it's to stand in the middle of the Cultist horde and anchor them in place with his Warlord trait. The Sorcerer should really be hiding throughout the battle, he's there to buff the Havoc - my alternative thought it to drop the Sorcerer completely and add another Lord as guaranteed re-rolling 1's is perhaps more desirable than Prescience.

The other thing regarding the Lord is the relic gives him 2+ and regenerating wounds

I've adapted the list into a slight alternative list, it's the even more aggressive Iron Warriors! There is even less subtlety to this list. It runs forward and punches things in the face

Isn't your 3rd detachment illegal as it needs 3 elite choices?

I think you're about 150pts over 2000. I added it up and it's around 2150pts. Maybe check your numbers again?

I failed to mention above I replaced one Maulerfiend with a Hellbrute to get the second spearhead detachment. Sorry, comes to just under 2k
