Default Hellcannon in Close Combat

Hey guys, how does Hellcannon work in Close Combat? Rather, I know the Dorfs are unbreakable as long as the cannon is alive, but is the cannon itself unbreakable?

yes the cannon itself is unbreakable as long as there is crew men also it now counts as a MO so D6 stomp ftw

Yeah I screwed myself in the game I played yesterday against HE. I completely forgot about Thunderstomp so the first round I didn't take my attacks. I remembered in the 2nd round and those end up winning the battle for me. It was my Hellcannon against 24 HE Spearmen + 1 Noble BSB with some armor piercing banner. The Hellcannon won with only 1 wound remaining and when all was said and done, 24 Spears were dead and the single remaining Noble fled.

In the end I won the game by quite a lot. I had 16 Warriors and my cannon + all crew remaining. All he had was his fleeing Noble.

Sadly it does not have a stomp:

Page 58 – Chaos Warshrines, Designer’s Note
Add “Although classed as monsters, Warshrines do not have the Thunderstomp! special rule.”
- p1 FAQ v1.1

Corpse Cart gets a stomp and that is essentially a bunch of zombies pulling a wagon... why O GW do not we get one too!

Remember, only 6 figures can engage a war machine. Does the text say the crew is unbreakable? War machines aren't unbreakable in 8th edition anymore.

The Hellcannon isn't a war machine, it's a monster w/ handlers.
