So I painted up one God Hammer and two Baals, but have yet to weather any of them. I know it needs to be done, but the idea of factory fresh tanks is kind of nice right now. I magnetized the ammo carrier portion of the turret so this Baal could switch from being a flamestorm to a regular assault cannon version, or even to a rhino or razor back. I have no idea what to expect from the flamestorm variant, but I wrote a poem expressing what I expect will happen.
One baal picked up some buck shot
One baal picked up some flame
One ball tank shocked a unit and never did it again
So how bad is this tank? If I zoom this thing 12 inches forward I only get to fire the flamstorm, so the sposons get wasted. I suppose the tank could survive close combat, but that has not been my experience so far with these things. Perhaps they would work well as objective holders?
