Should I give a Vindicator (V) Power of the Machine Spirit (PotMS)? PotMS is a bit costly at 30pts, but then it also means that a V can almost always fire it's awesome St10 AP1 load.
Well if you field a vindi yes, however i wouldnt field one of those.
I would always give it PotMS. The only purpose of the Vindicator is to fire a single highly inaccurate gun and PotMS gives you a constantly firing cross-eyed gunner. A match made in heaven if there ever was such a thing.
I do it almost all the time. Remember, it is ordnance that does not roll on BS, so the BS2 becomes irrelevant when using a Demolisher Cannon.
so the answer seems to be a YES atm...
would you do it then in a 1000pt game? or wouldn't you take a V in 1000pts?
I thought Vindicators and Whirlwinds fired Ordinace Barrages, therefore if they moved at all they couldn't fire. I don't have my Codex handy but I'm almost positive they count as Ordinance Barrages. They have the (G) next to them, but guess weapons are no longer in the the game. They follow Ordinance rules.
Or am I completely mistaken in which case I have to re-educate all my gaming friends.
May your aim be true, and your targets plentiful.
You are, unfortunately, mistaken. Only the Whirlwind Launcher is a Guess Range weapon. The Demolisher Cannon is a direct-fire Ordnance weapon, which means that it won't pin, and that it needs a line of sight to be able to fire. Also, note that a Whirlwind is still able to fire on the move, just not indirectly.Originally Posted by Escaflowne
