Hellcannons are filth. Chaos shouldn't shoot, it is not right that they get the number one artillery piece in the game. Any true chaos players will stick to men, beasts and daemons; not giant cowardly guns. Blood for the Blood God, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE OF KHORNE!
While I'm not a Khorne player, I do agree that in most settings, especially tournaments, Hellcannons should be left out by the player. It's not in character with the army, and will probably get you dinged on sportsmanship (and no, I do not want to turn this into a sportsmanship thread).
But, for friendly games, like my mess-around Tzeentch army that everyone got all bitchy about, a Hellcannon can be loads of fun.
Hellcannons are acceptable for Tzeentch, it's his style.
you obviously dont know anything about khorne then, in both fantasy and 40k Khorne forces always have had the best seige weapons. what good is an axe if you can't get inside the castle?
besides the cannon itself is a bit berserk.

Khorne mearly disaproves of magic. He does however like magic weapons that kill things. :shifty:
Ita not out of character if you ask me. And hellcannons arn't cowardly at all, they are always fighting against their chains so they can rampage against the enemy. Khorne would approve of a devastating siege weapon which also has an urge to smash things up in close combat.
Hellcannons just give you some covering fire so you can get into combat faster.

When I say jump you don't ask me 'How high?' maggot! You jump!
I dont think it's fair on other armies, empire and dwarfs should get the best seige weapon, not chaos who are CC specialists.
Khorne Daemon Engines anyone? Khorne has always favoured engines of destruction in 40K (Blood Reaper, Brass Scorpion, Death Dealer, Tower of Skulls, Cannon of Khorne and the Cauldron of Blood [not to sure about the name of that last one, it's been ages]), so I'm sure the FB counterpart would be no less inclined to use siege engines...
For the record i also think hellcannons are a bit too good,i mean come on they hit harder than anything in the warhammer world,will rape any troops sent to destroy their crew,and with 6 wounds and a 5+ ward save i dont see any other artillery smashing them to death.Furthermore just because khorne likes big guns in 40k has no corelation to fantasy...at all. Two completely different flufflines were talking about. However,in past editions of fantasy it has been made clear khorne is the chaos god of technology as well as rage. Why tzeetch,the god of progress,wouldnt be the god of technology is beyond me,but meh,thats how it is.
*****??? Khorne is the god of technolgy???
Oh wait I guess I forgot about all those nights when Khorne sat in a small corner reading his tech and engineering textbooks whilst all his other followers went off to take skulls in his name. I can imagine it.
Follower: "Blood for the blood god!!"
Khorne: "Will, like you boys out there be a bit quite? I have like a major test on how people have feelings, and how we should respect them and like not kill them tommorow and mr. Tzeentch will like totally kick my petootie if I dont study."
Follower: "He's turned to slaanesh kill him!!!"
Khorne: "Oh be nice, he aint that bad one you get to know him"
Khorne: "Ah fudge"
Not really....technology has always had huge advancments with the comming of war,nuclear power,radio,planes,automotives,sattelites. Its not so much technology like what your saying as it is forging new hellbound weapons of destruction. Look at khorne juggernauts,a perfect example of both peak physical form meant to slaughter foes mixed with hellforged iron and mechanics. Or to put it clearly:
Khorne doesnt use magic,but he is very much into using magic to forge powerful weapons. No other god does this really,so he becomes the patron god of forging new and arcane weapons,which is technology.
