    Mortars aren&#39;t that bad. They can kill off Skaven and O&G with ease. Why moan? 3 of them can do some serious killing. . . . . . ^_^

    What the hell? Suckbot??? Ok...

    Mortars are some of the only &#39;ordinance&#39; in the game. Cheaper than a cannon, but often more effective

    Mortars are great... they are hard to master. I had one, never got good at it (liked it like you), but then I meet some guy at a turnement, he destroyed half of my 2000 points with 3 Mortars and some luck... :blink:

    -So yea your alone on this&#33;

    Mortars are quite useful. Weak against most, but good on horde armies, they can still hurt otherarmies, if only a little. The LOS thing does suck when compare to stone throwers, but considering the low cost, they can be well worthwhile. ONe on its own is bad, but if you have 2-3, or some other artilley, then you can learn to use the mortar to easily make up its cost.

    I agree with everyone else, mortars aren&#39;t useless. They can cause nasty damage against lightly armoured/low T armies, and units in big formations should fear this weapon.

    So what it can&#39;t see a unit behind, and that&#39;s simply because it&#39;s harder to fire the mortar further (ie will require more Bpowder, thus better chance to explode). And the ST fire like that because it&#39;s got a longer range and is much harder to hit things close etc.


    But in all the mortar is a good weapon, especially vs horde armies.

    thanx guys you have rallied some hope in my heart for mortars, don&#39;t get your hopes up though i still like cannons better, (but hey I like swordsman better than anything else)

    we all must remember, though, what a famous empire general said "There are no problems that cannot be solved with cannons"
