I have recently built a Chaos Banebalde variant called the HELLVULCAN!
its a standard banblade with no side sponsons (side armour 14) hull mounted Demolisher cannon, twin linked heavy bolter and a VULCAN MEGA BOLTER!
i pointed this out based on the experimental rules for the marcarius vulcan for weapon points replacing the twin battle cannon compaired too the baneblade cannon. I pointed it out at 550 points just wondering if this sounds fair. i would love to hear your input as this will influance my next big build!
Thnks

Sinister I think its fair. Especially since I seen the points for other baneblade varients in Imperial Armour: Apocolapse. Cant wait ta squish it with my Stompa! All that ammo.... its gotta 'splode good!:fuck:

I did something similar a bit ago-- check out the Warblade Superheavy Tank thread further down on the Apocalypse page. 500 points has been a pretty fair cost-- you could probably drop yours down to 500 as well and not have any problems, particularly since you're not mounting sponsons.

well the warblade its pretty snazz but its kinda cheese for points cost my regular enemy's would complain too no end about the points i origonaly wanted mine to be bs 4 with the commisar rule for 590 they freeked the hellstorm gun's u are using are the biggest cheese. the points your using is a bit low i think. might work in your circle though.
long live ChAOS

That is nice, like the colour scheme as well. Though if it were me for the main turret there would be a toothed maw with the vulcans residing in it, but its down to personal taste.

550 is fair in my opinon. You are using a BS 4 baneblade with a 15 shot vulcan mega bolter. You'll be getting more hits than the macharius counterpart stats wise somewhere in the region of 9/10. The macharius vulcanian pattern costs 80 pts more than its battle cannon mounted variant and 40 pts more than its vanquisher variant and so a price increase upon the baneblade superheavy to mount this weapon seems to be about right.
