Welcome to Librarium Online!
hey i was wondering which is better
devistators(comp build of 4missles)
or a thunderfire cannon
i love the idea of a 4blast cannon that can instakill t3 units or get rid of cover saves and the model looks pretty good. not to mention the 60" range, but could it be as good as the good ole devs with missle launchers? they only have 48"range and their blast isnt that good however they can use krak shots. and can shoot at different guys(im pretty sure)
what do you guys think?
The thunderfire is hampered by the fact that it's a glass cannon which dies to a stiff breeze - devs are more survivable and more versatile, courtesy of their Krak rounds.
If you're just looking for an anti-infantry platform, then whirlwinds and dakka preds are best from a man-killing perspective.
That said, missile spam made it big for marines this edition for a reason. The versatility of a tube gun is incredibly useful.
I would suggest taking the devs. As Watchwood stated the thunderfire canon is just to fragile. It's almost as if loading the thing may cause it to break. On the other hand having 4 missile launchers firing down field is nothing to be scoffed at, especially if you take a wound you still have 3 more men as opposed to a lump of smouldering canon. When are you really ever going to effectively fire 60" anyways?

I'd say Devs, tried and tested, missile spam is the way forward.

And don't forget that one of the devs fires with 5 bs.
DEVS DEVS DEVS DEVS!!!!I LOVE DEVS!!!!!!

Praise be to the Emperor!!
Have to agree with everyone else, Devastators are the best choice. Personally, I'm not too keen on the Thunderfire anyway. It looks too much like an army bomb disposal robot.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
Have you ever tried to put together a thunderfire cannon?!
Just don't do it. I still curl up on the floor and cry when I think about it too much. That was the model that caused me to flat out refuse to ever buy another metal model again. After a year and a half, I've finally started dabbling in pewter bits.
It's an evil, evil model.
