I was even suggested to possibly take a Legion Falchion, but I couldn't really make sense of HOW they had that sucker in their Grand Battalion.
Unless this has been changed (I still only have the 6th ed books, I'm considering taking the updated versions soon), I don't think the Legion Falchion can be upgraded to be a Command Tank. Personally, I hate the look of the Mastodon even though it's a fluffy Iron Warrior vehicle for sieges. The point cost is also prohibitive. With the command tank upgrade, it's 720 pts, so it means that your army must be at least 2880 pts or you can't field it (in 30k, your LoW section cannot be more than 25% of your total). It's something to consider. The money cost is also massively high at 300 pounds. ;) I'm not sure it's worth it unless you win at the lottery or your are a millionaire, otherwise you might receive an angry look from your girlfriend. :D Whatever you chose, the Iron Warriors are known for their love of big guns, so anything in the LoW section is pretty fluffy.

I'm probably gonna be going with the Felblade then xD apparently a lot of Iron Warriors armies that don't field Pert all the time go for its power. I'm also ironically creating a novel involving these guys X.x hopefully BL will accept when their submissions open back up. Before you ask, these guys WERE Traitors, until the Warsmith slowly began to realize what was happening to his Legion... And after traveling through the warp, being close to the Eye of Terror, they return into the 41st Millennium! :D Though, another thing I forgot to add is the fact they'll have a Librarian with them, and I guess a Chaplain when I feel like using Zealot. The Librarian is former Thousand Sons, hates Ahriman blah blah blah, you know how that goes.
