An Imperial Hellhammer Super-heavy Tank On the battlefield, the Hellhammer’s role is that of either a close support tank, or an urban warfare tank.

Hellhammer (Tank)

The sequel novel is entitled “Shadowsword” and follow’s Bannick’s adventures as he grows disillusioned with the Imperium of Man and gets told to pilot a Shadowsword because its hellhammwr feels guilty over being used by Orks before the Imperium salvaged it back. Where the Stormlord is exceptionally effective against Orks, the Banehammer is especially effective against the horrendously fast-moving Tyranid swarms and their notoriously resiliant larger bio-forms.

Yes, that is correct. Some Forgeworlds simply can’t make Volcano Cannons or the complicated targeting computers intended to go with them, so they mount different guns and are sold off to Imperial Guard regiments in place of Shadowswords to fill requisitions.

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

Scratch-built Baneblade models with homebrew read: The pintle-mounted weapons are good, but not required; the same goes for the Hunter-Killer Missile. Warhammer40k subscribe unsubscribereaders 1, users here now About Warhammer 40k is a franchise created by Games Workshop, detailing the far future and the grim darkness it holds.

The Hellhammer has the same profile as the Baneblade — it doesn’t have a big armored casement like the others, but rather the same comically-small pivoting turret. People are gonna ask about that stuff. It differs from the old epic version in that it only has three barrels of battle cannons – a twin linked two shot hull mounted battlecannon and the if we use naval terminology for the thing Superfiring S9 AP2, 7″ blast Stormhammer cannon with shred and pinning.


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]. The Hellhammer is named after its main weapon, the Hellhammer Cannonbut it is also armed with a co-axial Autocannona hull-mounted Demolisher Cannona set of twin-linked hull-mounted Heavy Bolters hhellhammer two top-mounted sponson Lascannons.

I don’t know, a lot heplhammer times people can write off stuff that we do, but 26 Songs first came out as 10 Songs 17 years ago. 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.


Oh my, unfortunate son Welcome to Librarium Online! For sponsons, it has heavy flamers instead of heavy bolters. 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. The sponsons are supposed to be inferior to make up for the better main gun.

I have an old recording from the very first lineup of the band that we’ll eventually put out, sort of like the 26 Songs thing. 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. These shells are designed to destroy armour and emplacements with an unstable sub-atomic charge. Return to Melvins Articles The one that looks like a Venn diagram of 5 large blast markers is the Apocalyptic Barrage marker.

That was with a different drummer. There were local bands that did great there, but nowhere else. The Banesword’s armoured mass and secondary armament of three sets of twin-linked Heavy Bolters and two Lascannons allow it to perform much more efficiently than a battery of Basilisks when fielded in this way. The chaos conversion has the mega flame template.

The Hellhammer hellhamjer a super-heavy tank of the Astra Militarum that is a variant of the infamous Baneblade tank. This guy is your friend. Yeah we did plenty of “sleep-in-the-van” type stuff. There are two patterns of the Baneblade, the Mars and Lucius pattern. Our stuff is nothing but slowed down Kiss riffs! Its a shame they didnt give the hellhammer the humongous flame template. Yet, in an uncharacteristically grown-up move, the Mechanicum actually capitulated on the hellhamner and started making Stormswords themselves, upgrading the “Hellhammer Cannons” with dedicated “Stormsword Cannons” which have much the same range and effect, but a bigger blast radius.


If only the Mechanicus had looked at the Battle Cannon, looked at the Baneblade, and scaled-down the Baneblade design and slapped on single-barrel heavy weapons instead of twin-linked and a long-barreled Battle Cannon. Originally built from salvaged Shadowsword or Stormblade tanks, because those Volcano Cannons and Plasma Blastguns are blisteringly difficult to manufacture, the Imperial Guard just put wide-bore Cannons on the hulls and gave them spare Hellhammer Shells to fire.

DO NOT post point values for weapons and upgrades in your army lists, only the total point value of the unit.

It is also much shorter range than the baneblade cannon. Do you aspire to sell as many records as some of those acts? Like all of the variants of the Baneblade, the Banehammer came into being as the solution to a specific tactical need. Could you get a picture of this? Though if you two are playing 1v1 and his list includes a super-heavy while yours doesn’t, you might find yourself not having a lot of fun. Adrift within the vortex of my imagination. Then again, the “big” tanks in Epic were closer to moving, gun-mounting cathedrals.

I really like Hostile Ambient Takeover. 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. The Hunter-Killer Missile is neat, but with the massive arsenal the tank’s lugging around it’s not necessary. Its a well known fact that the crew members of Baneblades are chosen exclusively on the grounds of how big their balls are.
