Bassy because you can hide it behind a hill and have it be relativly safe.

Well, the Medusa is one heck of an OK all-round alternative to the Demolsiher, and the Basilisk has long range. But I say the basilisk, becuase it's range outweights the extra str point.

I would depend, coz that advantage would be destroyed if the Med set up within 18" or so...

The basilisk is an extreme-range artillery gun, the Medusa is a close-support siege cannon. They don't compare.

The basilisk would win, solely because it has nearly 10x the range.

Please note I play on a 4x4 table against SMs, and the vile terminator scum that needs to be cleaned...

Then get a Demolisher. The Basilisk is useless against Terminators, and the Medusa doesn't live long outside of a Cityfight.

In that case, the Medusa will fill in... not well, but it will.

If you can, scrape up the extra 5 points (and the cash) for a Thunderer. Shorter range than the Medusa, but much better armour.
