Super Heavy Tanks
« on: March 7, 2019, 06:09:51 AM »
Hi all  :) Just wondering if any of you have experience of using Cobras or Scorpions in 8th edition please?
I play in some very big games, and one or two of my opponents field Castellans, there's a Porphyrion too....Gargantuan Sqiggoth...various smaller knights.  For some time I have considered saving up for a Scorpion....against the type of enemy units I've listed, would it be useful/worth the effort?
Thanks. :)

Despite all of the advice, I went ahead and bought the Scorpion.
Thanks. :)

I've never played with any forge world stuff before, but I've seen the Scorpion in action on a few of StrikingScorpion82's battle reports on youtube. Yeah, it's devastating ;D!

Best bang in SH Tanks is the Cobra II, although the Scorpion is also great for it has a multitude of weapons to use.

Cobra has a bigger gun than the scorpion and is a multiwound killer.

Scorpion has a more define anti infantry role.

I wish I can be more presice than this without breaking rules.
