    I'd have to agree. Especially Zzap guns, those things are killer. 24" range (so it's not a dark reaper *phfff* big deal), automatically hits nething in its range, and has 2D6 strength. Sure it can overheat if you roll an 11 or 12 and kill a grot, but they're replaceable.

    just have a really hard time making up your
    mind.

    I have 3 Lobbas, got em from a bargain Dollar Tree store and converted em. They work fine on groups of infantry but otherwise better off with more rokkits.

    Big gunz are not a must. It depends on the army you are facing and I think gunz are more effective vs low armor troops. If you chose such an option, buy the full lot because anything less than 3 are going to be a waste of shooting (at least with 3 you can expect one hit a turn). As for wraithlords? Phhfffft...

    My thoughts on wraithlords from a previous post...

    One last bit of advice, Wraithlords... just ignore em. Keep your units out of charge range and ignore them. They are unit killers if they get troops into HTH (no way to kill them and once in HTH it never breaks = one orc unit you can write off). Use your limited firepower to hit units you can hurt. And not to mention, ignoring them drives your opponent crazy.

    True story here. An eldar player was flabbergasted that I was trying to shoot a wave serpent with my boy&#39;s rocket launcher, ignoring the wraithlord nearby (he saw what might happen also). I ignored his question of "Why are you shooting at that serpent when you should be trying to damage my Wraithlord?", and promptly got an immobilized result crashing his serpent (I guess he did not bother with the upgrades). Lucky rolls can make the game, but maximize your firepower on units you can hurt.

    Yes, they are effective at hitting armor. But the 24" range is a bit short for heavy support that is pretty much a &#39;static&#39; unit. It&#39;s a heavy weapon, so moving and firing are not an effective option. I like the zap guns on units that can move and fire like battlewagons (maybe dreads also).

    I like Kannons. To me they have a bit further reach (36") and are more versatile. Against vehicles they are a tad sub-par over zap guns because you have to roll to hit. But with a full unit of three, you can pretty much expect one to hit at a gaurenteed strength of 8, not to mention ordnance effects (basically doubles the chance you have at destroying a vehicle). Against troops, they use the smaller template but are even more effective as they use the ordnance rules (guess range and then roll the hit/scatter die).

    In either case, I would also add a few crew members to help in absorbing any shooting hits or bad ork shooting rolls.

    Zzap Gunz have always been my favourite Big Gun. As ever, I&#39;m not really sure why. I guess it&#39;s because they are just so Orky: "Hit it and hope it workz".
