Warhammer Community showed off some new legion-specific rules; let’s check them out!

New Horus Heresy Iron Warriors Rules & Rumors Revealed

As you might imagine, bringing down hard targets is the Iron Warriors’ forte in the new edition of Warhammer: The Horus Heresy. Blowing apart anything from a Dreadnought to a fully-manned fortress is second nature to these battle-worn engineers, and given the raft of fancy new plastic vehicles, they’ll have plenty of ways to show off their innovative on-field scrappage scheme of Wrack & Ruin. 

Adding one to the strength is actually a pretty big deal with how vehicles work!

Though their expertise lies with big, boxy targets, the IV Legion also needs to wade through throngs of meatbags to raise the flag of victory. Luckily, the finest minds of Olympia have devised Olympian Shrapnel Weapons – a form of bolter round that showers its targets with razor-sharp splinters. The Iron Warriors may shrug off pain and confusion, but lesser foes aren’t so stoic, and tend to waste time screaming and flinching when they get a little extra iron in their diet. 

Nothing too crazy here, but having Pinning on your pistols is pretty sweet!

Perturabo Rules

Iron Warriors rules 3They didn’t show off rules, but we grabbed them from the interwebs!

Perturabo rulesAs you would expect, he’s super tough and has some great special rules. Not to mention a 2+ Battlesmith. His Warlord trait isn’t the craziest but getting an extra reaction during the shooting phase is always nice.

Perturabo rules 2The Logos Array is actually an awesome shooting weapon and decent in melee. However, the Forgebreaker is super strong.

Legion Specific Rules

Iron Warriors rulesThe second trait is actually really cool, as you can sort of get rid of a big area of terrain your opponent is trying to hide all of their minis in.

Iron Warriors rules 2Adding 1 to your shots for the majority of your army is going to be quite insane. Then, you’ll also get to re-roll your 1’s, so once again, they are going to be great at shooting.
