kk. This is 1500pts. but its doubles so i only get 750. i don't think both is viable if I want a balanced army. Which one is better? The cannon is better vs monsters, heavy cav/infantry, chariots etc, and is less likely to blow itself up. But the Hellblaster is just cool, and scares evry1.
You say that neither one is balanced? Many people would say that the more reliable one would have to be the cannon. For the helblaster you have 1/6 chance of misfiring, same with the cannon... however with the helblaster when you misfire, you have 1/3 chances of blowing up, while the cannon has a 1/6 chance of blowing up. Sure the helblaster gets more casualities, but if you're opponant was smart enough they would stay away from it... one time I didn't even get to fire it because my opponant knew it causes massive casualities. With the cannon you get the range, and no armour saves.Originally Posted by cheese58
So overall, I'm a cannon man.
I voted hellblaster because i like it and 2nd i useally take one of each and dont forget the mortar it may suck against heavy troops but against things with no save, low toughness very devastating.
The cannon has a lot kill rate useally for me max i have killed is a chaos chariot and 3 chosen warriors but with the hellblaster quite short ranged and prone to explode without reason but very devastating no matter the troop short range for best effect.
All in all nether are balanced they are designed for killing something.
I love it when I roll for the first volley, misfires, and roll a 6! There is 30 hits for you right there!Originally Posted by Morden
I vaguely remember something about it being more powerful and you can get a potiental 90 hits (In the old codex). But it only happened once, and hopefully not the last!
I Voted Helblaster, as it can potentially destroy an enemies formation in two turns!
The cannon may be good against strong stuff, but it can't kill that many things in one turn.
I love the hellblaster as it fires so many shots, but:
I think that both compliment each other, as the cannon needs protection from Dwarf Miners etc but this can only be done with the hellblaster near.
The hellblaster is not very good at attacking with its low range so it should stay at the back.

Are you talking about Dwarfs? A helblaster isn't an Organ Gun...Originally Posted by Cairocopter
oops i thought it was between a normal cannon and a hellcannon so i voted wrong. i only realised when i started to wonder why the poll was so close. i truly am a numpty.
Everyone makes mistakes. mine was to leave her head in the fridge.
Farmerralph- I voted cannon, coz it wanted me to vote so I cud see results of my own poll!!! So its good job you leveled it out. For now I've gone wiv the hellblaster but keep votin! Check out mi list on the Army list forum.
id personally take the cannon since the mortar can do the same job as blaste, well sorta, while much cheaper and doesn't take up a rare choice. Then again in bigger games id jus take 1 anyway since their so fun^_^
also id rather not risk the hellblaster being blown up before it can be used (ie lore of life master of stone etc.)
