Cultists. You need more Troop choices and cannon fodder.

Cultists, autocannon Havocs, Rapier batteries (laser destroyers), Contemptors and/or Leviathans, Preds and Vindys. These are all units I use with my Iron Warriors to great effectiveness, and they're all fluffy AF.

Less lords and more boots and tanks. You have far too many chiefs and not enough Indians. I would grab more marines and cultists along with dreads and contemptors(which you can find fairly cheap on ebay I am sure leftover from the Calth box set). A predator annihilator or two will serve you well since the number of armored units on the field is increasing. A squad of havocs with missile launchers and mark of Slaanesh will be helpful general use units able to toss either 8d6 frag shots or 8 krak missiles a round. Cultists make great chaff units and I have found them highly destructive beyond their costs and only once has one of my squads not earned double its points back, not to mention protecting units from chargers.

Yes, I am here all the time because this is the last 40k forum I can access from work. You would think they wanted me to do work or something.... EDIT: Now work has banned it too ...

I appreciate all the comments. I agree, I need more infantry. The Hq units are just what I possess as of now, not necessarily what I would bring. The only reason I have as few units as I do is due to my wanting the entire army to be Heresy era style, as per my fluff for this specific warband. My LGS doesn't have as many mk3 and mk4 armor as I would like as of yet, but I defiantly am getting more soon.

Also consider a detachment of Renegade Guard with Basilisks - very fluffy!

Iron, is this not a chaos discussion? This is not an army list, merely a list of units I own and a question to veteran chaos players on what I could add for a fluffy and fun army. If this forum is not for such things, please direct me to the proper one.

As others have said, more troops.
I really like Forge Fiends, the stratagem allowing them to move and fire with no penalty does use up command points though.
At the moment it appears you don't have much for dealing with heavy armour so I'd also look at some high strength high damage load outs. You said you want more MkIII and MkIV, I would make use of the missile launchers in the MkIV kits to make a havoc squad for dealing with those pesky tanks.
I've just added a vindicator to my own army but have not had chance to use it yet. On paper it looks pretty good though.

Cheers

I find your lack of artillery disturbing.

So... Artillary and tanks, more infantry (including a renegade guard ally detachment), more helbrutes? That the basic idea

IW are a siege army so having troops to charge the breach would be a good idea. We don't have breacher squads(yet) so squads of tactical marines with flamers and melta, berserkers, and terminators would be beneficial for theme. Other than that, long range artillery. You can get a crap ton with the renegades list. From medusa and colossus tanks to mass numbers of mortars. Might even be cool to bring a Demolisher or two. I think they are superior to Vindicators. A Typhon fits the theme too although I find the rules on paper to be lacking compared to a Spartan, but I haven't used one on the table yet to find out either.

Berzerkers. You want berzerkers. Well, and more troops like CSM and Cultists.

Iron Warrior fluff which was quietly ret conned was large numbers of the assault sections that stormed the forlorn hope fell to Khorne. I still play this.

Yeah IW with Berserkers is pretty fluffy from ye olde days of 3rd Ed Index Astartes - noone is better than a Khorne Beserker for a Forlorn Hope assault :D

For those of you care about this whole ordeal, I am posting an update. I now have included 10 more cultists, a Tri-las Pred, and a Rhino to transport my Chaos Space Marine squad.
