Default earthshaker cannon

My friend said that the earthshaker cannon has the longest range in the game. Is this true, and what is the range.

You'll have to buy the Guard Codex to find out.

However, you can fire over six metres with the Basilisk.

Well Discluding the unlimited ranges on Seekers and HKs yes. For a small amount of points it can fire 6M. Thats enough range to attack another battle on another table ;D. But like I said HKs and Seekers have the longest range as they are Unlimited.

Hunter Killer - it's a one shot missile option for the Guard.

Isn't the Bombard further range, although its IA?



Earthshakers are able to hit not only everything on your board, but the stuff on your mates board as well across the room

Excluding titan weapons I think the manticore has the longest range.

Not unless the Eldar have an obscure Warrior Aspect that revolves around the complete mastery of the common light bulb.

Ha, that reminds me of the Apocolypse game I watched awhile back. About 4 people had 1k worth of Bassies sitting on the furthest corner of the 10 table-side-by-side board and spent every shooting turn bombarding random units of their picking.

Would've been more fun if it weren't for the constant yelling. >_<
