Well, it's entirely up to you.

The Hellhammer I think is the more anti-infantry tank because of it's Hellhammer Cannon, but then again, so is the Baneblade, but overall, the Hellhammer is best suited for an anti-infantry role.

The other question is how big is your army.

At 1000 Point or less, I would say no....1500-1750 maybe...1750+ sure knock yourself silly.

another thing

unless it's an apoc game you can't use the plastic baneblade unless you have imperial armor 1 as well.

the apoc rules for the baneblade are too unbalanced and not legal outside of apocoylpse.

Good point Johnnyboy.

Wouldn't want to kill the fun by having an illegal toy in your army.

If you add a Baneblade to an Imperial Guard army, I would make it one of the last things you add. I would start by building a normal 2,000-pt army. Even if you use Imperial Armour, the Baneblade needs its own FOC. It is not a substitute for a strong core of troops, particularly in 5th Edition.

Is that even a question? Who cares of you get to use it, it looks awesome! I made mine with magnets so I can change the config between Baneblade and Hellhammer depending on how I feel.

So, I vote for both.

The guy I normally game against has 2 full armored companies and 6 baneblades (various types). The reason; because it's awesome!

IG gets a plastic baneblade while other armies are stuck with haevy options like as the best they can get outside forge world. You gotta sport your IG pride, and paint that Baneblade up to represent your army, so that every Tau, SMurf, Eldar and what ever players will say, "Why don't we get some thing like that?!?!"

because the IG are Awesome!! :rockon: :rockon:

...

well that and because GW doesn't give a crap about anyone other than marines or chaos, while Forge World apparently Love IG as much as some of us do.

It probally helps that IG are known for tanks and there are so many planets/forge worlds that Forge World can go more "all out" on guard then everyone else.

Eleven barrels of hell! ;D (I love that saying) I'd say to get a Baneblade in your army list, you'd atleast need to reach the 2k mark, but try not to max out and equip your HQ will loads of wargear, since they'll (I think) be the big points drop. Or, you could try allocating 400 points to every section of the army i.e. HQ, Elites, Troops etc, then with the left over points, get a Baneblade or a Hellhammer.
