Great news everyone. According to the official GW Application for #New40k, the range of the Helfrost Cannon in Dispersed mode has now been increased to 36 FEET. You can now leave your Stormwolf model in the trunk of your car and still hit the enemy in their deployment zone:

You'd still need LOS. That weapon isn't artillery, so unless you can thread the needle out the key hole, through the front window, over your mate's head and between 2 obscuring ruins, gonna have to at least park it on top of the car.

ROFLMFAO, 36 feet!?!? Epic!

Now we can shoot the guy behind the guy, behind the wall, on the other side of the building, beyond the forest, on a completely different table, on the opposite side of the convention center at the next big tournament.

Oh GW, if only their intended humor was as funny as all the unintentional stuff they do.

Was there not some sort of scenario in the 3rd edition where you could have artillery on a separate table, and yes they could shoot on the other table, and the enemy had to split up his force to take it down? Maybe something the are trying to implement again?

Sorta. Artillery had like 10 feet of range (nanticores might have been 20) so I think several apocalypse events allowed you to shoot into other tables if they were in range. But it was never really part of the actual game just something used in apocalypse events and maybe the occasional narrative event. At least as far as I know, I only started in 5th edition. So maybe there were weird rules further back

Its almost like theyre doing some meta Primaris Lieutenant esque marketing where they deliberately rolled this out haphazardly so it becomes notorious but when it gets sorted/improves it looks like a big win
