I going to get somthing new for my army, and I was woundering what I should get. A volly gun or a great cannon. Or maybe even some knights? I need some help came some one help me here!
A cannon, if you can guess well. This is an aquired technique though, so practise makes perfect. If you haven't got one, I would strongly suggest you go out an get one!
If your going up against cavalry heavy,monster heavy,chariot heavy,or war machine heavy...great cannons rule. My records so far have left me with a 1/4 miss/hit ratio,and against a chariot/war machine,thats a pretty safe bet its dead. Against a monster,2 turns its dead. However. Its lackluster at killing infantry. Mortars do that much better. If your not going against brets,dwarves or shooty empire,and your opponent isnt using a dragon(although hellblasters can kill those too if you get lucky),hellblasters are waaaaaaay better. Still,100 pts for a cannon is worth it always.
Volley gun but thats just my oppinion...
I'd go for Cannon...if you see the sticky thread at the top of the forum for basic tips, my rationale is that your infantry, detatchments and Knights can take out their infantry. What you lack is something to take out their big hitters: Chariots, Giants, Trolls, Monsters etc.
And for that, the Great Cannon rocks.
Plus, with a little thought, you can construct the mortar and the Great Cannon out of the set (just dont put wheels on the mortar) and then chop and change as you see fit.
If you don't have a Great cannon Buy that one, otherwise get either the volley gun or the knights. Get the volley gun if you want to be a bit more defensive or the knights for a better edge in close combat.
Ive been able to hold up an entire flank with a single hellblaster. Tell me a cannon will do that.
No, it wont...it'll do what I said it'll do: take out strong units / knights. Units which the hellblaster will barely scratch.
It's horses for courses, depends on what your opponent has.
I agree, it depends what you have. Volley guns are quite effective at 1000pts (no to may mosters for you cannon to deal with).
Never drink more than 2 Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters unless you are a thirty-ton Mega Elephant with brocal pheomonia!
