This version was armed with a turret-mounted Battle Cannon with the same stats as the one on the Leman Russ Battle Tank , despite the turret being the size of a Leman Russ , two Lascannons, and a bunch of dice worth of "Bolters" to deal with swarms. Fluff described the hull as the size of a city block. This means this particular monster might have up to 24 Heavy Bolters or alternately 12 bolt pistols in addition to two turrets with two battle cannons each. Basically, you park it in a place and then forget about that place, since it is now Defended.

My Adeptus Titanicus Battlegroup is finally complete! Thursday, November 12, Baneblade book review Before I start the book review, let me first state that I own a Baneblade variant. Not the standard Baneblade, not even its sister tank Hellhammer, but a mere Stormsword. Baneblade, by Guy Haley, is a fantastic book. Any guy who can fire off a concerted bombardment from a few Leman Russ tanks that sent a Stompa toppling over to trip a psychic Gargant deserves utmost respect.


The Baneblade is the primary super-heavy tank of the Astra Militarum , and one of the largest and oldest armoured fighting vehicles in the service of the Imperial armed forces. It is also one of the oldest STC designs in existence. They are often used as command vehicles by Imperial Guard commanders. Bristling with armaments, a Baneblade is less of a tank and more of a rolling fortress. Possessed of overwhelming and versatile firepower, exceptionally thick armour and a near-indefatigable power plant, the Baneblade has been deployed in many varied war zones throughout the galaxy. Wherever a Baneblade sees battle it quickly becomes the centre of the battle line.
