I have a problem, I need to add more anti-tank power to my ork army. (One unit of tankbustas just does not cut it). So i was looking at a battery of guns but i am really undecided about whether to get Zzap guns or Kannons. The range on the zzap guns are putting me off as i want to plank them at the back of the table and shoot away, while with the Kannons the main offputting factor is the role to hit, but the way i figure it is that you have three guns, giving you a good change that you might hit something.
I will give each cannon the max amount of grots and a mekboy with a force field for some extra surivablility.
What do you orky bosses go with or think i should do?
For what you want to do with them, use the Kannons. For tank killing the advantage is the steady strength of the weapon. I like the Zzapp Gun, but many times I have rolled a low strength for it or had it overheat...whatever you want to call it. The cannon will also allow you to effectively attack troops. If you have the points to max out the grots and get a mekboy with forcefield then by all means do it.
The fire's going out...pass me another heretic.
Kannon is a great weapon.
As Havelock said, it can be used against troops when the enemy runs out of tanks.
A battery of 3 kannons is not to be underestimated.
Warhammer Fantasy: Warriors of Chaos, High Elves
Warhammer 40k: Eldar, Space Marines, Orks
the kannon is a far greater weapon in terms of allround
imo go with the kannon. the zzap gunz are ok, cuz u can get 10 strength but then again u can get 2 strength. and if u go over 10 with a zzap gun its gonna hurt/kill the crew
Zzap guns work better when they are mounted on gun trukks. I would say take another unit of tank bustas. Fielding 5 rokkit launchas that are basically str 9 vs vehicles is awesome. If you donâ€™t have the troop slots open try fielding some flash gitz that are not upgraded too much for more infantry.
Well, if its just weapons batters then i would take the cannons but if you want some anti tank then take a battle wagon with a zzap gun on, this way you cna get your boyz there faster and take out some tanks in the progress.
The poster formaly known as VampireSoul, formaly known as OrkSlugga now known as Orkslugga.
Cheers guys. I think the Kannon is the way forward. The battlewagon with the zzap gun will come later. Thanks for the help.
