The Empire cannons and mortars  -  Posted: November 22, 2010  -  Manufacturer: Games Workshop
I had a spru from the 5th edition Warhammer box with warmachines on it and decided to stretch it to make two guns from it. This cannon is the first. Technically I think it requires three figures, but I went with two because in HotT and Kings of War it doesn't really matter. I went with the same barrel fortification scheme with these guys that I used the the handgunners, and I and pretty happy with it. Lots of character here... The loader has to go out beyond the barricade, and is naturally reluctant, while the commander their is simply yelling and pointing, refusing to do anything himself! Since they are already receiving fire (see the arrow?) who would want to cross the barrier to load the gun? Poor bastards.
