Lascannon?? Who are you kidding! ^_- That thing carried Multi-meltas
from _hell_! When it surfaced, you placed the 12cm template centered on
the point where the Hellbore came up, and everything under it took d3
critical hits (ie, if you weren't a Titan, you're dead; if you are a
Titan, you're either dead or in Pain). And anything within 12cm of the
*template* had to make a basic save to survive!!!

The Hellbore was *awesome* way back when... <sigh>

Even the transporter had rules! (Heavy Bolters, plus two power fields!)

Heavy Plasma, actually, not lascannon, but whatever.

Yeah. I'm (kinda) working on converting some CapImps to Squat SHVs.
Only (kinda) now since I'm at school, and didn't have room to bring the
things with me... ah, well.
