Default traitor imperial guard tank companies

hi,
ive been thinking about making a tank compnay for a while now, but after i got a baneblade, i thought that a traitor tank company would be a good idea, but instead of imperial guard, it would be iron warriors manning the tanks, what do you guys think?

I've always quite liked the idea of Traitor Imperial Guard, just never enough to start them.

Making a tank company seems to be an original idea for a Chaos army so I'm glad someone is .

As for the main issue I can understand why you'd want Iron Warriors manning the tank but it doesn't seem logical. Obviously you'd have Armoured Fists [that right?] and I can't see the Iron Warriors driving the Imperial Guard around for them. In my opinion you should either make them all Guard or Iron Warriors. not a mix.
On the other hand, it would be a good idea to have a unit of Iron Warriors count as Armoured Fists?

hmm, my original idea was to have the iron warriors driving the tanks and shooting etc. but seems a good idea too keep it simple with imperial guard only

I'd stick with guard only. Though a few iron warriors wouldn't be out of place, especially for the commander.

You can't have a Baneblade as an HQ. I'd stick with the regular Armored Company or Armored Battlegroup rules, and I'd also keep the Iron Warriors to a bare minimum. Otherwise, your army ceases to be Guard and becomes a Marine army.

Real men fight in tanks!

Yeah, Baneblade HQ is a no-go. You can always model it as such, but you'll still need a regular command tank.

Stick to Armoured Company or Armoured Battelgroup, with only cosmetic changes, and you'll be good.

P.S.- Double, or Triple, posting is frowned upon. If you need to add something, there is a "Modify" button in the top right of your posts

you could include a =][= lord. with his 3+ save, he could easily represent a chaos SMurf lord, giving you a 'legal' option for iron warriors.
