i think someone said that the battle cannon rolls two dice
for armor pen. - if yes does this go for all Ordinance
is this true and if it is would this make it a good anti-tank tank
i can see it being good v Falcons and other av12 tanks
You roll 2 dice and pick the highest...you don't get to combine them
If you really want an Anti Tank Tank, then go get a Vanquisher. Oh man they are sweet for taking down enemy armor.
Standard imperial guard do not have access to vanquishers, all they have is demolisher and standard russ. AC on other hand can have vanquishers as elite or HQ choice. But yes, the vanquisher is the best anti-heavy armor vehilce in the game. With its cannon, and the anti-tank shells that come with it, it might be the best sniper taank in 40k universe.Originally Posted by H0urg1ass
Destroyer is also an AC unit so its legal for armored imperial guard player. Its not just forgeworld. Yet the tank itself is horrible. Its gun is nice and powerfull, but the fact that the weapon is hull mounted completely kills the power of the tank. Meaning it has to face wutever it fires at and expose its other sides, it cant rotate its cannon like a normal russ in two words. Destroyer is the last tank I would ever use. You would be way better off with a vanquisher
These are good points, Wraith. I admit that the Destroyer leaves much to be desired. However, I am not sure if KOS-MOS plays Guard or AC. If he plays Guard and does not wish to spend an inordinate amount on armor, he'd be forced to use Forge World to get either the Vanquisher or Destroyer. Plus, as a 'sniper tank,' I think the Destroyer is much more fluffy. Vanquishers are indeed better though.
I've been playing IG since before the Vanquisher existed so believe me, I know quite well that they aren't a standard legal tank. I cried for hours when the new codex came out and they weren't in the list; it was quite disheartening.Standard imperial guard do not have access to vanquishers, all they have is demolisher and standard russ.

Well the demo with STR 10 and 2d6 ( picking the highest ) is a pretty sick tank killer. plus ordance gets its own penetrating table!!
I find that Ordnance overall is a pretty overrated tank killer. The new scatter rules about the center of the template means that an unlucky roll on anyting but the biggest vehicles will nullify a shot better used on infantry. Again, Vanquisher is probably the best bet, or a Demolisher with hull lascannon and sponson multimeltas.
