Default Dakkablade Poll

Ok ppl I'm going to get a plastic baneblade some time in spring 2009 and I am planning to convert it to a Dakkablade (e.g. Cadian pattern Baneblade) but I'm not sure what to equip it with, the options are,
1: Don't make a dakkablade: if you think a Dakkablade is stupid and useless click this (I hope no-one does)
2: Hull assault cannon: just replace the demolisher with a standars assault cannon (I dont particuarly want to do this because I would loose out points-wise)
3: Hull Heavy Assault Cannon: I found this loveley detailed cannon in my old army toys, looks just like a assault cannon but one and a half times the size, I checked and it fits perfectley in the demolisher mount on my friend's baneblade
4: Hull AC and miniturret ACs: hull normal assault cannon and assault cannons in lascannon spots
5: Hull HAC and miniturret ACs: hull heavy assault cannon and assault cannons in lascannon spots
6: Shall I give it 4 sponsoons: even more dakka, less armour (I'll only go for this if there are LOTS of votes for it
7: Shall I make it a Dakkahammer: A hellhammer with assault cannoney dakka

I will definately give it hvy bolter sponsoons

I plan for this baneblade to be used as to charge forward to the 18'' to 24'' range and let loose the dakka but not get within 12'' of the enemy

I probably will make it a dakkablade not a dakkahammer because i also want it to be able to splat tanks (and the long gun looks cooler)

Please choose ONE of the first five options and any of the last two (6&7)

I will probably get the dakkablade between march and july 09

Rmyr

Edit: by the time i get the dakkablade I wi have about 2700pts of guard so i can use it in apocalypse

You might want to think about waiting for this to hit the shelves.




Even if you dont want to build it as a Stormlord it would certainly make conversion a great deal easier - and can you really say no to the Vulcan Mega Bolter? Seems like the perfect 'Heavy Assault Cannon' to me.

ETR (estimated time realeased), price (plastic or resin) and isn't that the 'transports 60 guard' baneblade variant? Thanx Gravis

Edit: If you vote please give a reason for the vote(s) you chose, even if it's only a couple of sentences

Double edit: whoever voted 'no dakkablade' please give a reason

Triple edit: experimental rules for heavy assault cannon
S7 AP3 Range36'' Heavy6 Rending

Quad edit: Jordan, Games Workshop Encourages people to make their own datasheets loosly based on 40k stuff e.g. new land raider variants, new baneblade variants, etc
I'm just trying to get a slightly more dakkaey baneblade to counter my friends horde armies, assault cannons are the same price as lascannons and I'm trying to get my Heavy Assault Cannon to be of similar worth to a demolisher cannon (and none have yet commented on my experimental profile...)

Release has been suggested to be next year, with no reason to believe anything other then the same price as the Baneblade. It is indeed the transport variant, as covered in Apocolypse: Reloaded, known as the Stormlord.

Alternatively you could look at the Macharius Vulcan as an option?

I voted against based mostly on my widespread dislike for anything that operates outside the published rules. I'm also not a fan off how much baneblades are popping up everywhere.

I voted for 4 sponsons because it has 4 lascannons all of which can target different targets, or gang bang one other tank...
also sinse the 4 twin linked heavybolters can also fire it can put a damper in a horde surge much easier with 4 rather than 2...
But looking at the 5th option I could see it going either way, or possibly combo?
But I dont know if you can do that but against a horde army a combo between those two options would be friggin awsome

Autocannons are the best thing to ever exist ever in the world ever.
