    Well it has 3/4 of the range but yes you're right. That's why you always put Maugan Ra alone and give the exarch and Eldar Missile Launcher.

    no it's half, reaper launchers are 48" and shuri cannons are 24".

    And yes maugan ra should have a missile launcher.
    The Morbidos Fleet will reclaim the Eldar empire. This time there shall be no mercy. Let them choke in their own blood!

    Its a hold over from 2nd edition. 2nd edition exarchs were independant characters often used to wander the battlefield alone and destroy everything, not just to act as vet sargs.

    Because Maugan Ra is there for the strike force, to join a squad of banshees. Two excutioners pwn. And pwn, and pwn, and pwn some more, if you can get them into action. Plus, if the cannon becomes an assault weapon, Maugan Ra will not only be sweat, sweat model, but able to shoot before he charges.:w00t:

    kingwithoutacrown how would he shoot a gun about twice the size of him while running without
    flying backwords?

    range 24" that is the reason why i don't have maugin and for my reapers exarch i don't change the gun instaed just get get fast shot so you get 3shots instaed of 2

    Shuriken are gravitically propelled right? No recoil, the shuriken just fall away from the gun. And he's got good balance. Errm...magic?...Does it matter?
