Can anyone tell me what im ment to use for this model?

The discontinued forge world model was just a normal land raider with 8 resin parts but the weird thing is that the parts were 2x twin multi-melta which is correct but it had a massive 4 barreled gatling cannon but the datasheet says Quad launcher?? which can shoot without line of sight, which no sense for a 4 barreled gatling cannon.

Anyone know what you are ment to use for this model or do you just use the gatling cannon since its the "correct" part for the Achilles Land Raider?

Would love some help with this, as i want to run one in my list.

It's not a Gatling gun it a vehicle-mounted version of this:

Having played against an Achilles more than once, the gun is actually a Thunderfire Cannon.

A Quad Mortar is a slightly smaller version of a Thunderfire Cannon.

 

Look at these two images of the original Land Raider Achilles:

That's what they mean. The Quad Launcher is an auto-loading multi-chambered Mortar.

Thats the rules and kit difference.

40k Achilles has Zhunderfire with Melta sponsons

30k Achilles has Quad Launcher with Meltas and Achilles Alpha has Quad Launcher with Volkite sponsons.
