After the Helblaster rolls to see how many shots go off does it take a multishot penalty on its to hit roll? Does it take a Long range penalty if the target is over 12"?
No for the multiple shots part.. as they don't have the multiple shots rule. Yes for long range.
I would say that it doesn't take a multiple shot penalty (it is a warmachine, and the multiple shot is to simulate an individual rushing to fire and reload quickly), however, the two or three times I've used one I have taken a long range penalty as it states in rulebook to 'apply normal to-hit modifiers'.
Cheese… milk's leap toward immortality
Black Mamba and Utsujin are on the money here. It uses long range as per everything else, but it doesn't take a penalty for multiple shots (I'd give a reference here, but my BRB's been packed; it's under weapons and multiple shots. The key is that the Helblaster doesn't specifically have the "multiple shots" rule as was said earlier).
I have another question regarding the hellblaster volley gun.
Since it uses the BS of the crew, does that mean that lore of heaven spells that allow rerolls to hit will work on it?
Further more, if an engineer uses the gun, it uses the engineers BS of 4, so can an engineer with hammer of sigmar cast on him reroll hits and wounds for the gun?
Sadly not, as the spell has to be cast on a character or unit champion.Further more, if an engineer uses the gun, it uses the engineers BS of 4, so can an engineer with hammer of sigmar cast on him reroll hits and wounds for the gun?
In the FAQ it states that you can't use the hammer of sigmar spell to reroll for the hellblaster
