For a while now i always agreed with chaplain danag, i thought whilwinds were ****.
Then i realised why.
The club i go to weekly has an abundance of marine and chaos armies or possibly witch hunters daemonhunters or armoured companies so basically my whirlwinds were doing jack diddly squit so i dropped them for more tactical squads :mad:
Then I discovered VDRs...
Oh boy was that daemonhunters army suprised when i parked a good ol whirly on the table, He looked at me smugly as if it was easy points. I got first turn and my new fangled mega gatling whirlwind fired a bootiful 3 missiles in the middle of his army killing no less than 23 grey knights. Oh the joy.
The reason i added gatling was because as it is a whirlwind multiple missile launcher i expected glorius hell raining down on enemies. Now it is. :lol:
My whirlwinds are soooo back in action heh heh heh........
Firstly, this is not a Tactica. This is someone gloating about how he used an obsolete set of rules to pull a trick on an opponent.
Second. Even if the VDR were still valid, you are not allowed to use them for actual models, without extensive conversion.
Thirdly, Whirlwinds do not need tweaks to be "...soooo back in action..." Read Chaosbrynn's SM Whirlwind Tactica for why.

Twisting the rules against an unsuspecting oppoent simply because you can't find the imagination to use it right on your own. You know, I'm almost impressed.
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)
Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces
I agree.What a stupid thing to do and as said before whirlwinds are very lethal without needing to tweak the rules.
OK, I have a better way to use Whirlwinds without needing to warp it with the VDRs. I'm sure every Space Marine player will agree with it, even those who don't use them. First, you deploy the Whirlwind behind cover. Pick a nice juicy squad of light or medium infantry. Wipe them out with the pie plate. Repeat for another squad of light or medium infantry. Never move it and protect its flanks. Note that I didn't say tanks or heavy infantry.Originally Posted by Tumpelo
The reason it's called a multiple missile launcher is it can carry multiple missiles in its battery. It just can't launch them all at once. That's why the whirlwind is an artillery tank. It sits back well away from the action fires a single pie plate every turn. It's the same reason Basilisks only fire one shot per turn. Firing three missiles in one turn would wreck that thing's chassis for sure.
Grammar is your best friend. Use proper puctuation and capitalization at all times. We should be seeing mod thunder soon.

scuse me peeps but wot r u on???
this is speciffically against marines. i decided to drop the armour and take a marine killer so if any of you pre pubescent fools want to take it out with me do so you probably get your insults from books like:
how to be cool
Swearing for begginers
how not to be gay
The straight track
Insults without swearing
Thank you goodbye
I find it ironic that a 12 year old is referring to a bunch of adults as pre-pubescents. The VDR rules are quite possibly one of the worst things to ever be printed in Chapter Approved, and thankfully, they are obsolete and invalid with the current edition. It is the same thing as you bragging about owning a bunch of third edition armies with your second edition terminator rules.
haha good try. you agreed with chaplain danag? he was banned quite a while back before you joined the LO. what a coincidence that you have the same avatar... i'll leave this for the mods to clean up.
I'm not sure, but do you get your MaD l33t EngL!sH sk!llz from "How to kill English"? Or maybe "Txt spk 4 n00bs"?Originally Posted by Tumpelo
