Ironically this makes it a pain in the ass when fighting in close and narrow environments like urban areas, places where the Stormlord is meant to shine the best. Note that you can mix and match as you see fit: The Banesword is a siege tank and one of the most recent derivation from the in famous Shadowsword: Multiple Inferno cannons would make for a very cool VDR conversion.

The Heavy Flamers are expensive, but other tanks are bound ruules a maximum of 3 for a comparative higher price tag aka the tank they’re on. Anyone know how they justify fluff-wise S10 AP1 ignores cover?

Super-heavies are not designed to be balanced, and their points costs are often totally out of whack compared to their actual capabilities, especially for those with Destroyer weapons. But I dislike the failure to incorporate things equally heavy, but not the same kind of bullheaded garden-variety heavy.

Metal Rules

Just so I’m absolutely clear: It can also carry 25 soldiers, and has enough hellhhammer in the rear deck to let ten of them stand outside and fire. On the upside, if you’re playing space marines, you get to watch the Emperor’s Fury running around a jungle path being chased by a giant tank Benny Hill music optional, but encouraged. It is able to turn entire building blocks to dust with a single shot.


We all have good taste in music and we all have good judgment, so it we think something is good, people should like it [laughs]. Besides looking totally kickass, it stomps a lot of ass too.

While the Tremor Cannon shell itself does relatively little damage, it is the side effect of the underground explosion that is invaluable, pinning the opponent in place and making him vulnerable to sustained bombardment by the other artillery elements of the Imperial Guard. As soon as we left, it started getting better for us there.

Hellhammer (Tank)

It is alittle more geared towards anti-infantry. I don’t think they’re any smarter than the other fans. It uses the Hellhammer Cannonwhich is shorter, but no less deadly than the Baneblade Cannon, and strikes harder but on a smaller area, giving exactly zero fucks about rulex cover in between. The chaos conversion has the mega flame template.

But when you look at the firepower you know you’ve got the good stuff. I just bought hellhammef baneblade to add to my guard army and I am having trouble finding out which book has the most modern rules for it. Its Hellhammer Cannon and hull-mounted Demolisher Cannon make short work of any armour or fortification, while its secondary armament of two Lascannons and three twin-linked Heavy Bolters allows it to mop up anything that escaped the devastation wrought by its main armament.


The Baneblade has achieved a bit of a mini-meme status because of Captain Apollo Diomedes of the Blood Ravenswho has this tendency to scream: Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. Okay, so my friend has a Hellhammer in his 3, ish point Imperial Guard army. That would be great. That stuff all started after we left, like ‘ Chances are, Yarrick would most likely use his tank and proceed to piledrive it into Ghazghkull Mag Uruk Thraka’s anus in Octarius.

How is the Hellhammer different than the Baneblade? – Forum – DakkaDakka

Nor does IA 2 have them. It also might have to sit on top of a gas station to keep its armaments going for the entire battle, but I really would have preffered this to heavy flamer sponsons. As mentioned above, Stormblades in Epic used to have Hellion Missile launchers to add to the amount they could Rape Titans, however in current 40k they no longer have them. This time, Quad-Cannons for quadruple the fun! Basically, if you shoot it at a unit, and that unit is not a superheavy, you have killed that unit.

It has a shorter barrel with special heavy-gauge suppressors built into it that allows it to fire extremely high-calibre shells without ripping itself apart.
