My main concern with your list is antiflyer. I think a good option is a deredeo dreadnought. A good tactic with that is to set it up with a automatic pravaise and post it next to the tyrant seige terminators. Bam suddenly the unit has a 3++ invuln if they stay within 6 of that dred. Not to mention the deredeo itself is absurdly effective at stripping hull points off of a vehicle. I had my deredeo take 2 voidshields and 5 hull points off a mastodon in two turns. Granted Lady Luck was with me but it's a good example. Not to mention is has the ability to gain skyfire and interceptor when you want it.

Jere is my revised list. Let me know what you think.

Have apprehensions with the size of ttran siege squad. Could use a contemptor if I lower the size. And also the small size of terminator squads

You are still lacking anti-air in the new list.

Personally I would drop the Sicaran Venator and the cut back to 5 Tyrant Siege Terminators and drop one of the regular terminator units. With the points you have, buy 1 unit of 10 Iron havocs with missile launchers, even the sgt, and give the sgt an augury scanner. Thats 365 points. Then I would also get a unit of 10 Iron Havocs with auto-cannons, even the sgt, and another augury scanner. Thats 315 points. By doing that you have the ML's that can still crack AV14 tanks AND provide anti-aircraft support. The autocannons can take out AV13 and infantry. Both units have Tank Hunter so you WILL get glances and pens each round. Plus with a BS of 5, they hit on 2's. So you will be hitting alot, no matter the target.

I would also drop the iron halo on your Preator since the Cataphracii already gives a 4++ invuln, and unlike the 40k Terminator Cpt, we don't get to reroll failed invuln saves (unless I totally missed that rule someplace).

Will all that, you still have roughly 50 points left over to buy other gear. If you can find 30 points someplace else, add 2 Rapier batteries. Those things really pump out the shots per round, and will devastate units with the number of shots that hit.

And another thing to keep in mind about your terminator squads....cataphracii armor CAN"T fire overwatch. So watch out for assaults.
I play the following Warhammer 40K armies:
Bugs
CSM
Harlequins
Cult Mechanicus
Chaos Demons

Hi Iron Warriors player here, and I thought I would give my opinion.

First, if you are running Siege Tyrants, I would consider a Siege Breaker in Cataphractii Armour to be an Auto include. I would drop the Praetor for him personally, as I don't see a need for a Praetor with Perturabo.

Secondly, using the Siege Breaker, buy some Phospex bombs for the Quad Launchers.

Third, go with either min or max squads of Terminators. One extra man won't make too much difference. Besides Iron Warriors ignore one of the biggest drawbacks of small units, which is the ease of causing morale tests by killing only a few models, usually with shooting. Nothing frustrates an enemy that relys on powerful shooting, like never even rolling the Morale test for casualties. Fun Fact, I've never had any of my Iron Warriors flee from the board.

My most recent list was for a 2k Tournament, and I will list here to show my take on Iron Warriors.

RoW: Pride of the Legion
Perturabo 490pts
Siege Breaker w/ Cataphractii Armour, Chainfist 140pts

Elites:
2x Iron Circle 410pts

Troops:
5 Man Terminator Squad w/ Lightning Claws, Heavy Flamer, Grenade Harness on Sgt 260pts
5 Man Terminator Squad w/ Power Fists, Plasma Blaster 215pts
6 Man Veteran Tactical Squad w/ Power Maul, Artificer Armour on Sgt, Vexilla, Meltagun 157pts

Heavy Support:
5 Man Siege Tyrant Squad w/ Chainfists, Combi-Melta on Sgt.

Tactics: I use Marksmen on the Vet Tacs, and Outflank, and only Deploy Pert and his 2 Iron Circle Bodyguards. I use them as a Focus for the Enemy, then hit them with Deepstrikers all around, starting with Turn 1, and watch the enemy put all the big Guns into Perturabo in a desperate bid to kill him before he hits Melee, and the Terminators typically weather a Fury of the Legion Attack, before charging on my turn. Siege Tyrants and Siege Breaker appear and target 1-2 Vehicles using Sgts Splitfire, and Siege Breaker giving Tank Hunters to Cyclone Missile Launchers

Just my style
