Hellhammer – Warhammer 40k – Lexicanum

This version was armed with a turret-mounted Battle Cannon with the same stats as the one on the Leman Russ Battle Tankdespite the turret being the size of a Leman Russtwo Lascannons, hellhzmmer a bunch of dice worth of “Bolters” to deal with swarms.

The 40l is designed with but one purpose: Lo Bannick and his quest to redeem himself from the grievous sin of killing his cousin in self-defense.

Additionally, the Quake Cannon is inefficient against enemy Titansfor unlike the Lance beam from a Volcano Hellhamer, or the massive plasma burst from a Plasma Blastgun, the massive shell will be stopped by any 40 Void Shield, requiring the target’s shields to be taken down before the shot is taken with any hope of success. In a way, you can think of the Doomhammer as the ‘shotgun’ of the Titan-killing Baneblades as it lacks the overall oomph, it makes up for the aforementioned troop transport and its ability to cover a decent amount of land into molten lava.

Unfortunately Yarrick was pretty bad at maintaining his mobile house of pimps.

Despite the unfortunate implications, this is still probably one of the best super-heavy tanks in the game due to the amount of fire power that you get. Despite obviously having a big gun on the lower hull, there was no representation of it in the tank’s rules.

The weapon has a shorter barrel outfitted with heavy-gauge suppressors to fire extremely high-calibre shells. This is an official image, by the way.

It is like the only super-heavy tank that the forces of Chaos have without being hel,hammer into Daemon Engine territory or exclusively sucking Papa Nurgle’s dick. During the siege, armoured hellhammeer attrition rates outstripped supply and thus Imperial commanders had to use replacements for their lost Shadowswords.

But what is known is that the Hdllhammer is a clear sign of Pert telling Rogal Dorn to go fuck himself as he destroys Dorn’s fortifications. While the Heavy Flamers hellhammef deal more damage they are hamped by their range and damage output, and work best on those variants who already need to be close to the enemy to use effectively. The Stormhammer is a Solar Auxilia tank for 30K. It can also carry 25 soldiers, and has enough room in the rear deck to let ten of them stand outside and fire.


Indeed, Imperial combat doctrine holds an honoured place for the Banesword. Optional toys are a pintle mounted multilaser or heavy flamer and up to 4! He does this by signing on to hellhammrr nearest imperial guard unit and starts the novel commanding a squadron of Leman Russes and then after an Ork ambush he gets a spot as third gunner on the Mars Triumphant.

The points really add up though: The original Stormhammer was outfitted with two twin-Battle Cannon turrets and four pairs of Heavy Bolters, along with options for pintle storm bolters and four more sponsons, meaning it could mount seventeen fucking bolters if you were willing to pay for it. The Banesword dispenses with the most hampering disadvantage of the Shadowsword, 400k having to disengage its engine before firing.

Basically, if you shoot it at a unit, and that unit is not a superheavy, you have killed that unit.

The vehicle is capable of switching its sponson-mounted Heavy Bolters with twin-linked Heavy Flamers. It’s a corrupted baneblade chassis with its baneblade cannon replaced with a giant pus-cannon, which bathes a large area with a contagion hwllhammer causes the body of whoever’s afflicted by it, to erupt in boils and their flesh broken down before their helkhammer eyes in seconds.

Retrieved from ” http: The main difference is that while its main weapons systems the BEHNBLADE cannon and the Demolisher Cannon do much more damage than before, they don’t function like the rest of its guns, they’re used for special abilities that require manual targeting to fire, and cannot be fired at targets within minimum range. In situations were the range is short 40 the fields of fire limited, the Hellhammer is brutally uncompromising in delivering fiery destruction upon Mankind ‘s enemies.

Your ad here, right now: Sign In Don’t have an account? The weapon is very similar in form and function to the Imperial Demolisher Cannon found on the Thunderer Siege Tank and Space Marine Vindicator tanks, with the exception that it is much larger, with a single shell weighing over kilograms. However, like all super-heavy tanks based on the Baneblade chassis, it suffers from poor top speed and maneuverability, and the Quake Cannon’s fixed setting requires the Banesword to be bodily aimed at its intended target.


It has replaced its bolters with lots and lots of Reaper Autocannons, resulting in it being far nastier against medium armor, though its main cannon is not turreted, meaning the entire tank has to turn to fire it.

Though you wonder how the passengers fit without taking up room for extra ammo This makes the Fortress of Arrogance an excellent HQ command choice as the ability to inspire nearby troops provides a good morale boost in the midst of battle. Like its counterpart tank the Stormlord, it is a dedicated line-breaker, designed to deal with large waves of infantry.

It is literally the best of these master units in the game, and it will go toe-to-toe with any other such unit and kill them before they kill it. Since shells did not have to be carried and the retrofits did not take up too much space, it can also carry 25 soldiers, and has enough room in the rear deck to let ten of them stand outside and fire.

In all seriousness, The power of the Quake Cannon, combined with the armour of a super-heavy, has established the Banesword as the pinnacle of Imperial siegecraft. The fluff reason is because the missiles had a tendency to self detonate when exposed to enemy fire, resulting in several tanks being destroyed by their own missiles.

The modern Baneblade mounts what’s known as a ” Baneblade Cannon ” representing belated recognition that the thing in the turret is really huge and so probably not a Battle Cannon with a coaxial Autocannon, the same two Lascannons it always had, two Twin-linked Heavy Bolters in each sponson and another two on the hull front, and a Demolisher Cannon where the Mysterious Not-A-Weapon was once mounted.

Unfortunately it just HAD to share the same turret mount as the Shadowsword, making it impossible for the Stormlord to turn its Vulcan Mega-Bolter around without turning the entire tank around. Contents [ show ]. Additionally, since the Tremor Cannon is much smaller than the original Volcano Cannon, the Banehammer possesses a large empty hold, which can be used to either transport a small platoon of Imperial Guardsmen, or house a cramped but fully functional headquarters equipped with powerful Vox-casters and tactical arrays from which the officer in charge can lead his troops.
