I still don't get it. If I field an Earthshaker Battery (no crew) can it fire?

Yes."Earthshaker Battery" and "Earthshaker Carriage" are two separate units to represent two different forge world models. The "Earthshaker battery" model is no longer produced, it's out of print.

 

An "Earthshaker Battery" has no crew. If you take one it can fire until it's destroyed. 

 

An "Earthshaker Carriage" has 3 crew members, if all the crew are killed it can no longer fire.


It seems like they made it needlessly complicated to make sure there were rules for both distinct models.


The Codex Astartes no doubt has guidance that covers that kind of situation - long, detailed advice that would essentially boil down to "shoot the choppy ones, chop the shooty ones".

Wow, ok. So auto fire artillery...hmm...interesting. I know there are sentry guns already, but I didn't realize there was automated artillery as well.

So more or less we gotta scratch build 'em or use third party models for those?

Or try to find them on eBay or similar seller.

According to community Forge World Index FAQs are next weekend. Hopefully they will make R&H useable. I sent in a list of errors, I suggest everyone else does as well, the more we tell them the better chance they address everything.

I was looking at the stats for the Earthshaker Battery, trying to figure out how to best represent that, when I saw your idea about being commandeered by Nurglings.  That's brilliant, thanks for that, Plaguecaster.

I've been looking at Elysians and feel like they might be a nice fit for a fluffy (counts as) chaos spawning/gating-in renegades army. Maybe an Alpha Legion cult army?
