Welcome to Librarium Online!
i have never tried a heavy weapon platform and before i spend any money on them i was wondering if you guys use them and think they are good. I looked at all of them and i think i like the d-cannon the best, the other 2 dont have any ap.
They are expensive as f**k (pointwise and moneywise).
If you want fast with lots of heavy weapons just play Dark Eldar!!!!!
Nah, I'm not too sure, but yes, the D-cannon does sound awesome.

:lol: Infrazael stop trying to convert ppl to the dark eldar :lol:
anyways yes the D-cannon is the best all around support weapon IMHO but against tank heavy armies with low armor save troops (see: I.G.) the vibro cannn can do wonders.

jake do you usually use them in a game? if you do can you plz say how good/well they do.
d cannons are awesome. i use them in every game i play. i just put them in the middle of my deployment zone, behind a big piece of terrain and anything that comes within 24" gets decimated.
infrazell they arent expensive at all points, wise.
for 150 points u get 3 str 10, ap1, blast shots, and count as ordance against vehicles.
<insert witty remark here>
Inf seems to just go off on one every now and then it appears h is attracted to the word "Dark" - see his deathwing stuff as well
Anyway - weapons platforms.
Spinners: never used them - doubt I ever will they could be usefull against armies with trash armour, but mostly not
V Cannon - IMHO very under rated, if you face a mechanised IG army out of the latest white dwarf, they would ruin his day - one shot hits 3-5 Leman Russes! That has got to hurt. Usefull primeraly against Vehicle laiden armies
D cannon - cant recall the last time I fielded an Ulthwe army without one. The only real problem these have is range, you get tempted to put them at the back which further detracts from the range, but they are well worth the points
Everything you have been told is a lie!
k, thanx for your help i think i might start using one. ill try it out today.
I also have a heavy weapons platform and D cannon is the way to go. Trust me it is awsome just don't kill yourself with it
D cannons and VIBROCANNONS both rock. the other... eh forget about that.
D cannon is a downfall just because of the range.. but the str is awesome, place three in one flank, watch people walk around it! XD
Vibros are wonderful too, since you shoot at a line, it goes through a bunch of stuff. I primarily use it to stop transports, knowing that it does instant glance if it hits.
Not exactly possible as Leman Russ blocks line of sight and when firing vibrocannon you have to choose the point in LOS where are you firing at...Originally posted by Cheredanine@Aug 4 2004, 040

I think that Shadow weavers should be useful in Iyanden army when Mass troops killing is required...otherwise they suck...
D-cannon looks pretty good but with its short range they are a defensive weapon and I do not play defense oriented eldar hehe Nothing for me, but if You play immobile shooty eldar go for it, they are great for take and hold mission...their only weakness are eldar guardians..one lucky mortar unit shot can ruin whole unit for next turn (pinning is nasty) or for whole battle (Ld 8 sucks)
Vibrocannon...the most expensive of the heavy platform weps but is it truly most effective??? Well i think that necron player will be suprised by its auto glance monolith rule hehe but how many units are you thinking will you get into line of vibrocannon fire? Two? three??? No more...and when You take into account that you need LoS, it means that everything that you fired at will have Los back to you, so i am afraid vibrocannon guardian troop will turn into bloody mess faster then YouÂ´ll know it...and one other thing..even if you field 3 vibros in one unit You still get only 1 glancing hit...not good...
