Default HammerHead-less

I was playing a guy and he asked how many hammerheads i had (he was IG) my friend steps in and tell him that i hate hammerheads. You could see the glow in his eye. and then asked if he could use forge world models. being apathetic i said yes. he had a super mega tank made out of kenx 3 tanks with battle cannons and a transport with two squads in it. I crushed him.

i infiltrated my stealth squad and destroyed the transport with a fusion blaster on turn three. (stunned it turn 2) the guys popped out and killed them but not before i destroyed a battle cannon on one other tank.

My broadsides took out the other tanks after a bit. longer then i thought it would. then the mega tank was left. he consternated a lot of fire on my pathfinder fish but still got to its goal next to the super mega tank and drooped off the pathfinders. i love how emp grenades glance 4,5 and penetrate on a 6 regardless of armor.

i consciously stunned the guns and/or destroyed structure points with my pathfinders. it was Glorious. he was so mad that i won that he curshed his Kne'x Tank

Wow, sounds like a K'nex baneblade. I've only seen lego. Nice work without hammerheads, How many broadsides did you use?

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

Congrats on the victory, although I must say when an IG player says "Do you have any Hammerheads" he means "Do you have any Railguns"...

Main reason why i hate using tanks is the cost. any time i need a direct firing spot chances are there is somting that will pentrate the armor. glances tend to not happen That much. and when they pentrate 50% its gone. the other 50% it is stunned. and if it is stunned chances are they will penatrate it next turn. even glances still a good chance it will be destroyed. i always remember how i destroy walkers with bloody fire warriors. it takes me more effort to kill termantors
