If a Fire Raptor were to be kitted out for CHOOM purposes, what would its armament be? Culverins and chieroviles?

Roc?

Well that's embarassing, I asked that time as well. However, I'm still not sure what should replaced the Avenger Bolt Cannon.

A chieorovile would be the closest probably. Failing that, two demi-culverins?

Roc?


The Cinder Roc, to give it it's full title, is a Volkite variant of the Fire Raptor brainstormed by our brother and mutual BotL member Hesh Kadesh back towards the start of this thread, here's the post:

I also developed a Volkite variant called the Ash Phoenix (alongside a Volkite Pred dubbed the Cremator) much later into the thread which you can see here if you like:

If we scratch the Fenrisian bit, could we make that the Akira pattern?

Of being a Night Lords kinda guy and having what outsiders would call an unhealthy love of choom, I had a little play with a cheeky Volkite filled Army list. The pre requisite is everything has Volkite (In no way competitive or meant to be anything taken other than fun)

Spoiler


It's in no way optimised other than all the Volkite :evil:

As in bring it to the BotL'verse? Sure! I'd be more than willing to allow that, the Fenrisian bit was just a joking in-universe play on the term Viking Funeral. :)

I don't suppose a request for a close up of the main armament is out of the question? :D

It's coming along beautifully, although all those Culverins are some kinda tech-heresy msn-wink.gif

 

I'm just super glad that I ensured the design has features to make it explicitly not a rotary weapon, because confusion about that was a whole thing back when I did the concepts for the original incarnation

Cool conversion, brother. Have you considered communally (as in the MDRC itself) creating the back ground for this Praetor? I know you have the beginnings so far - maybe a little interaction between us might be cool.

This is something I could go for!
Right then chaps for those who haven't seen him on FB:
He's former Atramentar.
He likes fighting in space.
He's a little bit good at it.

So yeah, let's get started!

so, i got this idea last week.

 

i can't have volkites(except on tech-priest magos) in 40k, but i can have grav guns and combi-gravs on deathwatch termies.

 

of course, the grav gun profile is nothing like the volkite chargers, except both are str 5.

 

however, a stroke of mad genius struck me.

 

what if the Iron Warriors in an effort to make the volkite weaponry more armour negating, they accidentally turned it up to eleven, and the deflagrate effect worked on a more microscopic scale.

 

instead of burning flesh and starting chain reactions to other nearby victims, the volkite beam caused the victims armours electron to get way too excited, causing the victims armour to deflagrate "inward".

 

anyway, that's my excuse to cut up a bunch of volkite serpentas and lascutters into volkite chargers for 30k and combi-grav guns in 40k.

 

anybody got a good name?

volkite arquebus?

volkite blunderbuss?

volkite disintegrator?

Volkite Imploders.

30k Grav weapons that work like the 40k one were Graviton Imploders so why not take a nod from that? :D

Arquebus. As Looper put it, a blunderbuss is a gun "for :cuss-up turkeys"

Whilst trying to think up some fluff for my dude above, have we discussed space ship scale Volkite before? I know we're up to Titan/ordinatus level but I can't recall us taking it to space.

Either way, what would the group's consensus be on something in a lance format, maybe not the best penetrative weapon to use in space, but more with the idea it's used to cook off ammunition/bodies/fighters/bombers/ generally the more exposed areas of a ship?

Yeah I’d probably see volkite as more of a point defence weapon, as I’ve always envisioned Titan class weapons being used for defence against bombers, fighters and ordnance.
definately something like the carronade as a beam weapon
