i'm making my empire list and i've got 12 crew members but 5 war machines. and im playing 2k games.
i've got: 2x cannons, 1x mortar, 1x hellblaster and 1x hellstorm. what combo should i choose??
two cannons, the rocket, and the mortar. And you need two naked engineers to go with them. One engineer to babysit the two cannons in one location (never put all your artillery in one spot) that has excellent line of sight. The other engineer to babysit the two indirect fire weapons in another location that needs to be the hardest place for the enemy to get to them, and it doesn't need (and if the enemy has LOS-dependent artillery of his own, like bolt throwers, shouldn't have) LOS to the enemy.

I could see the hellstorm being an absolute beast against certain high armored infantry units, something a mortar does not excel at, cannons are awesome as are mortars so long as they hit. I never hit with warmachines...I can't tell you how many times my hellcannon has failed me during the shooting phase, thankfully its a beast in combat.
