Default Catachan bane blade

Well my friend is starting catachans, and I was wondering if they have any special baneblade pattern. I was thinking if would be awesome if they had a main turret that was just a giant flame thrower, would be pretty fluffy and awesome.

The Hellhammer, the other baneblade alloted in the Apocolypse book, pretty much describes Catachan.

A Large gun that igores cover, and heavy flamers on the side? I would say it pretty much screams Catachan, add some Camo-netting here, some mud there, and green/brown/khaki cammo pattern and you've got yourself a Catachan Hellhammer!

Are you crazy? When would catachan's ever use a Baneblade? A chimera would be pushing limits with them as far as armour goes.

Catachans do have armour. Not in any regular size battles, but read their army book, in the bigger battles they do have armour.

Look in WD december 07 there is a baneblade showcase including an ultra-cool catachan hellhammer, basically just a hellhammer with 4 heavy flamer sponsoons and camo netting.
For the camo netting he just got some of GW 4 jungle trees and atached the leaves to thin wire, he then snipped jewelers chain links in half and stuck them to the hellhammer and then threaded the wire through those links.
He also said that it was important to paint the hellhammer and the netting seperately.

This sounds ridiculous. Catachans with a Super-Heavy? Well, I guess it could just drive OVER the trees.. seems kinda stupid though.

When do you see Space Marines in 40k? Or, if you just want to say Catachans=Nam, when do you see plasma guns or las rifles in nam? I'm sure that if they had a massive tank that shot tons of fire, could have a massive engine and dozer blade, they would have loved to toss it into the jungles.
