Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wondering if anyone used either a Dreadnought or the Kannons, or both in their army? Right now Im starting out my ork army and wanted to have 2 dreadnoughts and 3 Kannons as my heavy support, but then for awhile I wanted 6 Kannons and 1 dreadnought, but now Im confused as to what to do. . .

Hear the wip, fear the Broadside.
for ork heavy i tend to take as many killer cans as poss. Becouse they draw a lot of fire and save ur boyz from getting shot and also becouse the are good in close combat. As a side note i think the best heavy weapon orks get is the zapp gun, however their range is quite short so i would take them mounted on transports ECT, rather then stationary.
Well, my heavies consist of a dread, basilisk, and 3 kans. I have debated getting another 3 kans cause they rock so bad, but eh, I think the dread is still cool. But in terms of some artillery from the rear, I would do a basilisk or something else with ordinace. St 9 no LOS was my motivation, but mabye you like the Kannons... :confused:
Depends on what you're facing. A battery of lobbas is kustom made to order for smooshing packs of Imperial Guard and 'nids to the floor, but don't do nearly as well as kannons do against heavy infantry, if only because the kannons can multi-task and blow up any annoying rhinos/LR/whatever-catch-of-the-day-the-fish-'eadz-decide-to-use. Sure, Zzap guns hit automatically, and make a nice hole, but I'll take the increased range of three kannons. I just need to penitrate the damn thing once and then I don't have to worry anymore.
As for the dreadnought... I'm not sure about that one. I've been using kanz for a while, but I'm starting to wonder if I should drop them and see about working in another unit of madboyz. Or simply going completely feral, as is my wont, and destroy all who oppose me with my squiggoths.
And as for the basilisk... weedy weedy weedy! I'll take my griffon, thank you!
Unless I'm facing Necrons. Then I'll gladdy take the basilisk and hide it somewhere. Stupid floating paper weights of doom...
