This is the start of a new series, that will hopefully bring new ideas and tactics to the forums. Each week, a new topic will be posted up about a different unit in the army book. This gives you your chance to discuss the unit to its fullest. So, please leave your comment!
This week's topic is - Halfling Hotpot
How is this best used with a DOW army? Do players use it? Why choose this over the cannons?
Hay all LO's,
Well the Hop-pot is better in some ways than the cannon, here (IMO) are the pros and cons:
- Ignore armour saves
- The model under the hole suffers a Str 6 hit and D3 wounds
Well thats my opinion if i'm wrong please correct, thankyou.
- Only Str 3 on figures around the centre
- Not as imposing as a cannon (very little know)
- There are better rare choices for a DOW armys, (Slayer pirates, Birdmen)
1st Combined Regiment. Contains Tallarn,Cadians, Catachans,Valhallan,Attilan,Armageddon Steel Legion and Vostroyan. Most Kills in one turn: 98 space marines and 6 rhinos with only the stompa's Gatla Gun (only that)
sorry, most people don't use DOW anymore, same with this forum.
I know people have commented that I talk too much about previous editions of warhammer, so all I can say is that in 5th edition, for the Empire Army which had the Hot Pot, I guess it was not a bad unit, from what I saw. It seemed like it did it's damage vs my Skaven consistently.
I plan on using mine as a proxy for an Empire mortar. In a dogs of war army, you should probably stick with cannons.

Slayer Pirates are Special, if I recall... and Birdmen are terrible. Flyers can come cheaper than that, much cheaper.
The Hotpot I've decided to take over the cannon primarily due to expense - so much cheaper - and the fact it just to me feels more likely to hit something, with a scatter, as opposed to the cannon bounce. That, and the higher Ld makes a difference too.
