Pick a legio titanicus and declare ru,es the Emperor or the Warmaster today! Debating whether I want to pick one up myself or not. Not bad, but even better would it be applying to all weapons. The nice think about the Infernus is that it’s auto hit, so your shooting output doesn’t degrade as the tank dies.
Heavy Bolters do some work, and the Demolisher is no joke either.
A case for Malcador Tanks in 8th? : WarhammerCompetitive
I do not own a Malcador Battle Tank, but I expect it plays very similarly to the Leman Russ, seeing how the loadout is pretty much identical, with the added benefit of being nearly indestructible. Despite this, Forge World has given it 2 Heavy Bolters in 8th Edition, likely because they just doubled the weapons of a Basilisk. Even though it looks tannk, and still has an unreliable engine, this design choice makes it the only tank stronger in the rear than in the front, leaving it less vulnerable to deep-striking assault troops.
Necrons just seem to wreck my shit, I’ve rulse my Tanm killed in turn 1 both times by a vehicle he had an Ark or Barge? Focusing on the popular Forgeworld Horus Heresy game.
You would think they wanted me to do work or something You can deep strike a 4 man command squad and tempestor prime all with plasma into rapid fire range.
A heavily armed and armored carrier, the Dracosan was large enough to accommodate a fully strength Solar Auxilia Infantry Tercio of twenty auxiliaries, and heavily armored enough to protect them from all but malvador most intense of enemy fire.
malcavor The Quins are incredibly dangerous as well. In this role, the Defender’s Demolisher Cannon can be used against well-fortified positions and enemy strong-points, while its multiple Heavy Bolters can sweep areas for hidden infantry and defend the tank from a close assault. Would you think that would be weirdly out of place?

Malcador Heavy Tank
By the time of the Horus Heresy many Malcador tanks had been relegated to strategic reserves and second line Imperial Army units, replaced by newer and more powerful designs, although the demands of the galaxy-wide civil war soon brought them back into the fray, while their availability saw them used as test-beds for a variety of new variants designed to plug gaps in supply and resource.
DE is usually the most close and fun battle. I guess it has sponsons now? One good option here is sentinels because they get the scout move before the game starts. Another way would be to simply slide the landraider sideways like a big slowed hovercraft full of eels.
What they mean is that they have encountered and conquered it. In 8th edition the situation is very different. Still, against other, more conventional armored vehicles when it is part of a larger offensive force, the Malcador Annihilator can still prove its worth in the hands of a skilled crew. Although the Malcador Defender is very cramped, fitting a large crew of 8 into its tightly-packed and blazingly hot hull, it is as prone to engine problems as the other variants of the Malcador tank, and its battlefield role means that it seldom operates far from support or resupply.
Necrons are difficult, but the key is just going to be forcing them to make a lot of saves, and thin their numbers before they reach you.
These tanks were used to horrifying effect to defend breaches in the heretical lines during the Siege of Vraks. Back to top 17 Danny Cyanide Posted 10 May – For my AM ‘s fluff, I was considering having them hail from one of those “forgotten” Imperial worlds, and either were still producing Malcadors when they were rediscovered a few thousand years ago, or had preserved foundries that could be fired up by the Adepts and still churn them out.

That flamer is nice! Yes, I am here all the time because this is the last 40k forum I can access from work. Now I didn’t factor in the heavy stubber for the Infernus that it comes equipped with or flammable fuel or even performance against TEQs and other vehicles, and like anything that is math-hammered everything is arbitrary and does not accurately translate into the game as there are a ton of variables that come with number crunching.
Oh yeah, it also mounts a Demolisher Cannon in its forward hull. Its protection was greater than the ubiquitous Rhino and it is equipped with either a powerful twin-linked lascannon or a mighty demolisher cannon at the expense of some of its transport capacity. Poor bastard can’t catch a break.
Back to top 9 Arkaniss Posted 09 May – I almost forgot about this model! Which brings me to another question: With the Hellhounds you are also losing one point of ap, and it’s a toughness 7 chassis vs a toughness 8 chassis.
The Minotaur is not armed with any other weapons but can be upgraded with a Pintle-mounted Heavy Stubber or a Storm Bolter. It is more common in many Imperial armories than the standard heavy tank upon which it is based. While not yet in common use at that timeImperial logisticians had projected that its services were likely to be required in ever greater numbers Oh how they are wrong given the circumstance of the 41st Millenniumespecially where Loyalist Solar Auxilia were called upon to fight the Traitor Legiones Astartes and the heavy armored vehicles they had ready access to.
This is, literally, a blatant rip of the French Char B1 heavy tank, though the B1 had an actual turret. It’s cheaper now or at least it seems to be, I do not have the old 7th edition IA at handyou can expect to be able to shoot most of the weapons most of the time, making the tank very points efficient, and it’s basically heavy bolters housed in an nigh indestructible steel box. The massive gout of flames launched from the Inferno Gun is also effective at clearing mines, the sudden heat detonating mine fuses and making large areas safe much quicker than alternative methods.
Competitive play is, first and foremost, playing for the purpose of competing, often with the end goal of winning.

Gets you up to 5 shots for a lot fewer points and also looks quite cool. The Malcador Annihilator malcaeor originally conceived as a field modification carried out on battle-damaged or unfinished production hulls intended to “up-gun” the tank’s weaponry and extend its battlefield utility.
