    Default wich one to make? Please help

    I have a problem about empire warmachines.
    I have bits only for an empire mortar OR an empire cannon so I would like to get some help about wich one to paint and assemble...
    I know this isn\'t the right forum to ask this but there must be a couple of players here who know wich one is better to have in a battle or wich one is more impressive in the battlefield.
    I\'ll post some pics after i\'ve painted the crew and the machine (whatever it is then???) so help me plz

    Haven\'t played empire yet, but there\'s a difference in the 2 weapons (oh Tuubje, you are so keen on noticing this stuff :rolleyes: ).
    With the mortar you can shoot anywhere you like without a line of sight, you just try to guess the distance. But the cannon can do a lot of damage (the iron ball just goes through entire ranks), but you need a line of sight.
    So it\'s up to you to choose, what\'s the best choice for your play style? Personally, I\'m a lousy shot, so usually go with a line of sight thingie.

    Default Cannon

    Yeah I made the cannon after I read a bit from the warhammer rulebook. I think it\'s a good choise cause the machine is really powerful and could do a really messy job when fired perfectly

    make both cannon and mortar....
    use the appropriate pieces to make a complete cannon.... then use whats left for making a converted stationary mortar...

    yeah, i know it\'s too late now, but i also would make one and convert the other with whats left and anything else you can get your hands on

    Default AHHHHH

    why would you post and not wait for a good number of replys before deciding?

    Anyways, I just wanted to point out that it greatly depends on the current army and strategy behind it. Though the cannon might be better in a direct comparison with the mortar, the mortar does have its advantages for particular army lists.

    I would have suggested posting the same question on a Warhammer forum, theres quite a few good ones on Yahoo.

    Have fun!

    Default What to make, cannon or mortar

    get creative. go out and get a steam tank, put the mortar in the bach and make a mortar carrier.

    I made the cannon and the crew and now I just have to take the pics and learn to use the camera. I like the idea of converting the mortar...
    I gotta try it
