Default Vanquisher Question

Hey guys,

Got a quick question for you regarding the Leman Russ Vanquisher. Now as far as I'm aware you:
  • Roll to hit with your Ballistic Skill
  • Roll 2D6 for penetration

Now the problem. With the 2D6 penetration do you add both the dice together giving you a number between 10 and 20. Or do you only use the highest dice like you would with an Ordanance weapon?

I've assumed you do the first and add the 2 dice together, otherwise it seems the tank is rather pointless compared to a normal Leman Russ. So have I assumed right or am I completely wrong here?

you are very much right. add the 2d6 together to get the final power of the cannon.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Well with that issue wrapped up looks like I can safely order myself a Stygies Vanquisher from ForgeWorld. Love the look of the tank but didn't want to splash the cash until I was sure of the penetration issue.

You'll notice that the Vanquisher Battle Cannon is not actually an Ordinance-type weapon, so the Ordinance rules for armour penetration do not apply.

(So yeah, you're right.)
