So I have always been a fan of the Iron warriors ever sense I read Graham McNeil's Storm of Iron. The sad history, the color scheme, the Characters, everything Hazard Stripes and all. Sadly GW has gone away from the legion armies to the warband armies for chaos space marines. So I have taken upon myself to make a supplement for the Sons of Perturabo.
Warning: I have done this mostly on Notepad so their will be misspellings and this is a WIP so any comments critiques concerns will be much appreciated.
Iron warriors supplement codex
Iron Within Iron Without!!
Special unit rules:
More Machine then traitors:
"Due to their unnatural affinity for machines and their willingness to amputate limbs to prevent mutation many Iron warriors replace body parts with bionics"
Models with this rule have the feel no pain (6+) special rule.
Iron Within! Iron With out!
"A monotone chant of "Iron Within, Iron Without!" is repeated during the beginning of combat operations by the Iron Warriors. Saying "Iron Within" to elicit the response "Iron Without" is sometimes used by the Iron Warriors to identify each other, especially in confused combat, such as that in tunnels or during combined operations with other Chaotic forces."
When ever a Iron warriors unit is with in 12" of another iron warriors unit they will gain stubborn.
Sons of Olympia
When ever a iron warriors unit is behind a fortification such as ruins aegis defense line fortress of redemption etc they increase it's cover save by +1.
"Iron warriors have always had a sense of paranoia and trust very little other then their own war gear."
Units with this special rule may ally with armies from the following codexes: Codex chaos space marines codex black legion codex crimson slaughter but only as Allies of convenience. This also prevents an Iron warriors army to take plague marines noise marines thousand sons and khorne berserkers as troops in its primary detachment. they have very little trust for those who sell their souls.
Enemies eternal: the hatred of the imperial fists by the Iron warriors is legendary. from the defeat of the Emperor's palace to the massacre of the Iron Cage any chance the Iron warriors can make war upon these Lap dogs of the emperor they do so with the upmost intensity.
All Iron warrior units have the special rule Hatred Imperial fists this also includes Armies that use the chapter tactics Imperial fists.

Scourge of Olympia:

The warlord and his attached unit may re roll sweeping advance results.
Storm of Iron:
The Iron warriors vanguard veterans are no strangers to storming keeps and walls with their one goal to cause destruction on a massive scale to allow the rest of the legion through to victory.
