Part Daemon, part war machine, the Hellcannon of Chaos is a massive construct of iron and brass that growls and shakes with diabolic sentience. In battle, these arcane engines heave great blasts of daemonic energy arcing through the air toward their targets, incandescent explosions liquefying anything they touch and sending the survivors screaming in all directions.
These hell-forged beasts are spawned from the dark ingenuity of the Chaos Dwarfs, in whose volcanic furnaces the Hellcannons are created. A Hellcannon must be constantly tended to in battle, for the Daemons bound within each war-construct hunger constantly for a banquet of warm flesh and hot blood laced with the taste of fear. Hellcannon crews load their charge brutally by shoveling the bodies of their foes into the dire-furnace at the Hellcannon's rear. These are perverted into wailing bolts of pure change, and vomited toward the Hellcannon's target in powerful spasms of hate and malice.
A Hellcannon, towering above the mortal followers of Chaos that it accompanies into battle, is virtually indestructible. Such is the strength and bloodlust of the Daemonic machine that it must be chained to the ground to prevent it from rampaging toward the enemy lines, intent on gorging itself on raw flesh. Even these precautions prove inadequate should the enemy draw too close; it is whispered that there is nothing that can truly stay a Hellcannon's insatiable lust for destruction. A single Hellcannon is quite capable of blasting apart the walls of even the most stalwart fortress.
