    Plasma cannon

    This is a pool. Who accually uses a plasma cannon. Its a great weapon but its kinda hard to field, Because of the units that can carry it.

    I do!
    I think the only viable and best option Is within a 6 man tactical squad with a plasma gun, any other options i.e devs are far to expensive for my liking.

    As for plasma cannons, i never use them. Any competent player will instantly deploy their troops as far apart as possible when they see a plasma cannon in your army, so i opt for a lascannon, multi-melta or assault cannon in the case of dreadnoughts. They tend to do much more damage in my experience, and personally, i just lose interest in plasma cannons after a while - i find plasma guns usually cause as much pain.

    That's all part of the fun. My new army list has a Gun Servitor with a plasma cannon, as well as a combi-plasma gun on a Vet. Sergeant and a plasma gun on a Tactical Marine. Doesn't sound like much but the army only has 21 models, six of which are Dreadnoughts .

    I use plasma cannons sometimes... I used them with great success once against a nurgle army. I had 3 in a devastator squad, and they blew up half of his troops...

    I don't use them all the time though. Mostly just because I want to take some, not because they are particularly good...

    I clicked on the poll setting but it didn't take sorry

    And my persoal use is only in a techmarine squad. And i always roll it first so i can reroll it if its a 1.

    I use plasma cannons on my sponsons. They work better than the main gun sometimes.

    it might just be that i always face really bad opponents, but my plasma cannon normallyfrys anything i play. I have 1 plas cannon and 3 missile launchers in a dev squad. They are useful against tyranids becuase you can frag them and the plasma cannon gives a hard hitting punch. I can normally wipe out a squad of guants with these babies. The plasma cannon is useful against stealers with extended carapace becasue the frags don't have a low enough Ap so they get their 4+ save. But with a plasma cannon...haha, whos up for a pile of smouldering ash?

    I have never used plasma cannons before but one day i might consider taking them.But right now im doing fine without them.Maybe one day il take some against a CSM army.And i hate the thought of the model overheating.Like to sepnd the points on a 5 man Tactical Squad to put the plasma in for some protection and then the plasma cannon just overheats would be devastating,i couldnt take that risk!!
