    Field Artillery.

    Hello Everyone, I was thinking today in English class about my ig army, Im using a drop troops army, And The basilisk just doesnt look right, SO i was thinking What if a made some Field artillery like a howitzer, And Gave it a crew of 2 and attached a Heavy Bolter team to it (to add the Hull mouted Hb)? What do you guys think?

    Fluffy. Nice. I think forgeworld have a stationary basilisk model that looks a bit like a German WWII 128mm Flak Gun.

    I was thinking more along the lines of Howitzer, Like something that can be droped out of a plane.

    for counts as i personally would never have a problem with it. The only thing is how do you represent the armour value? I think your best bet would be getting hold of the forgeworld rules for the stationary bassie and working from there. I think they are in IA 1. nice fluffy idea though

    How about converting like a small tank that could be easily dropped...i am thinking like a mobile howitzer jeep thingy with a heavy bolter on it somewhere.

    Not sure how heavy a howitzer is, but you could model so there are six or seven guys pushing into a firing pit. Model sand bags and the like around the base of it to represent armor, and model a few guys with guns to represent the heavy bolter.

    Here was my general Plan,I recently bought a charriot regiment for a school project,But i did not use the base, it is long arouns 4In. And 1.5 Or so Wide, I was gonan put the cannon, And 3 cadains on it, Then on another base, put on a heavy bolter team or 2 men carrying a heavy bolter.

    That sounds good. THe only problem I forsee is with it not being as large as the tank, but that is easy enoough to fix.

    To make it count as the same size as the tank, just make a scenic base whose edges are the dimensions as a basalisk. Then have your men in a little action diorama on the base.
    This way they can be easily moved around and you have sides to orientate the 'basalisk' and to decide on which side you are being shot.

    Sounds like a good idea, what cannon are you thinking of using?
