Faction Focus – Ironjawz

Win Rate

Bloodtoofs is currently the faction of choice within the Ironjawz. 22 players chose it in July and together managed a win rate of 55.7%. That’s slightly higher than the ideal bracket of 45-55%. Also just inside this bracket are the Ironsunz with 46.7%. With only three players choosing them it’s hard to judge whether this is an accurate representation or not. Also finding low representation are Da Choppas, also with three players. But this time their win rate is in the gutter with only 30%. But again, this should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt.

Results Breakdown by Subfaction

4 wins at an event is currently the best result, and that has only been achieved with Bloodtoofs. If playing with Bloodtoofs, you can consider a result of 3-2 to be your target for a good performance. If playing Ironsunz, set your sights a little lower with a 2-3. Da Choppas players are in a bad place so at present any result with more than one win is a good result.

TOTAL POINTS: (1970/2000)

Brett: What is there to say, Ironjawz are awesome, but this is a Mawcrusha and 18 piggies. There is no subtlety here – these are coming across the board as fast as they can. Both of the big blocks are in Bounty Hunters to boost their damage against GV. The inclusion of an Arcane Tome on the Mawcrusher is interesting, presumably for the Purple Sun. The Purple Sun and Bash ‘Em Ladz have the same casting value (8). Get the Sun out as soon as possible and then try and get the +1 to wounds from Bash em ladz?

First turn (or any turn really, but only one) that Mawcrusha can move 36″ with Fast ‘un and Mighty Destroyer’s. While Tyler would like you to go first and move closer, he really doesn’t need it on most AoS boards. At least one of the big Gore-grunta units will also have a 3D6 from Get ’em ladz. However this is a 3 drop army, we are seeing a lot of larger drops at the moment which might give Tyler an edge.

This is a massive alpha strke army that you want to avoid until you can wear them down. It’s important to remember not only Mighty Destroyers but Touched by the Waagh. The Megaboss can call his Waagh any time and then everything is rerolling their charges, a wall of charging Gore Gruntas. His only loss was to the eventual winner, those Blightkings being just the thing to weather a massive charge.


Performance Against Other Factions

Ironjawz have performed very well against old meta leaders Maggotkin of Nurgle, the focus on troops obviously giving Ironjawz some advantages here.

At present the Daughters of Khaine appear to be the bogey opponent for Ironjawz, only winning 41.7% of their matches against them.
