WHAT?!? How is that not 25% cover?!?!

Seriously, your lascannon can only see 25% percent of my Landraider, if that...

Just for the lolz!
The hilarity following that statement was the highlight of last night's game.

Vehicle side arcs never make much sense in 40K, but make much sense in Battletech.

The Land Raiders are balanced point wise and the question of cover is subjective.

TL:DR

I never understood why anyone would mount the LANDRAIDER guns in the rear instead of forward. The closet to the front, the better the arc and range...

Agreed, though more for the reason of why would you exit in front of the guns that are providing you with covering fire?

That said, he got the tank second hand and ripping off/out doors & sponsons isn't worth the damage that that will cause to remedy the backwards positioning.

Don't forget that they ARE Lascannons, thus the chance that the extra 2" of the guns being forward and beneficial is very low.

More of a chance a marine with be successful at gonking his head like the stormtrooper at the end of the formation marching around the Death Star in A New Hope.

LOL! Damn!

...so is this alway we're getting for the Thursday blog? you sent me more pics of this game last night, it was a total tank war! What the heck happened? it looked epic!

Gridlock occurred @ approx. 10:30, by 10:45 it hadn't improved and it was a work night so we called it a draw.

Aside from that, his Khornate Deathstar hit a Tactical combat squad, vaporized it, and summarily died in a hail of incoming fire from about half my army.

Oh, and the Harlequins were vaporized when Ahriman looked at them funny...

Screech said...

Its not "total tank war" when most of the tanks are Rhinos and Razorbacks.

Also, that'll teach your Harlequins to get within eyeshot of Ahriman.

I learned Saturday evening that 6 Thunderhammer Terminators tend to deal with such roadblocks rather well.
