Space Marines Thunderfire Cannon

Postby Lord Krungharr » Sun Sep 09, 2012 11:34 am

I played against a Space Marine army with 3 Thunderfire Cannons a few weeks ago, and the player said each Cannon has 2 wounds at T7 with a 3+ armor save, just like the Quad Gun. Where are the stats for the Thunderfire found? I looked in the Space Marine Codex and GW FAQ and both just have stats for the Techmarine.

Also, in the Codex it states that the Cannon is 'crewed' by a Techmarine. Does this mean the Cannon and Techmarine count as a single unit with mixed saves/mixed toughness? Or when shooting and/or assaulting do I have to specifically target the model I want to hit?

Needless to say, that was an unpleasant game, especially with Lysander droppodding in on my rear flank! :shock:

Main rule book under artillery. Page 46 I do believe. Your opponent was right and the Thunderfire cannon has been one of the best sleeper units in the game since it came out.

Thanks!

Looks like all I have to worry about is taking out the Techmarine, and then the gun disappears too. That should do it for the Eldar artillery crap too.
