Default Has anyone used the hell blade or hell talon?

Just wondering if anyone has used the hell blade or hell talon before and if it is any good.

For those of you who don't know what these are, go to this link: http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/acatalog...CESSORIES.html

Can't say that I have; though I'm not really big on Forge World rules.

However, hopefully someone else may have had some experience with them

Cheers!

I never actually tried any forgeworld models or rules before, since I always thought they were too pricey for my liking. But I was amazed when I checked the site and saw 2 chaos fighter planes. That was the first time i ever saw those.

I heard from a friend that one of them has a lascannon and the other has a autocannon. Thats basically all I know about them. Also I have to say that the chaos dreadnoughts on there, are awesome.

I think the only thing i would ever use forge world for is the black templar sheilds, Which i could use for my new legion. But that would cost a bit because I live in Australia which is across the other side of the globe from UK, So postage cost ALOT just for a few sheilds.

I had a custom-made aircraft for my Chaos at one point. Dunno what really happened to it, although it was sweet in the few battles I was allowed to use. Quite a terror tactic really despite it's lack of weaponry (it was a small one-man craft armed with a single lascannon and was crewed by a daemon :P). It never really got shot down because nobody really knew how to bring the thing down lol and just ignored it most of the time .

One of the guys from my gaming club has a Hell Talon for his undivided army.

I haven't played against it, but it can wreak absolute havoc in a game!

It's a neat, fun little thing, but it's only really good (as in useful and fluffy and wise) in large games (2000 or higher). That way, if a couple lucky heavy bolter take it down, you'll still have something left.


Cheers
Lawrence.

Where can you find rules for things like this, things not in the codex?
It sounds like it could be useful for tank-hunting.

Forge World publishes their own codices called "Imperial Armor" for their stuff, theyre HUGE books with lots of fluff, rules for their models and some GW models, LOTS of illustrations, and a hefty price tag...

Costs aside though, I play with some of the Forge World Chaos creatures, the spined Chaos Beast and the Large Spawn, I also have the Forge world Hellhounds for my LatD army, but I've never used the fighter. They look wicked though!

Apologies MikeV for highjacking this thread,

I haven't had the opportunity to encounter the chaos aircraft stated above. But, I was fortunate/unfortunate enough to do battle against a Imperial Guard that included a Baneblade. This was obviously a very large game.

The Baneblade is an horrific piece of equipment on the field. I was extremely lucky late in game to open the beast via rending. Courtesy of two extremely large packs of Daemonettes. The entity blew up, annihilating everything within a very large radius. This included most of his army that were flocked around it.

Thx for all the posts
