kool!

Being a long time ork player and a die-hard (drive-hard?) mad max fan, I like the rules very much.

But the vehicle costs are a bit off, I was trying to calculate stuff for road warrior buggies in armybuilder, and it came out something around 90 points for armor 10/10/10 and heavy bolter, plus transport capacity.

I think these rules could use some vehicle upgrades like rams, bull bars, oil droppers, wheel spikes (immobilise enemy car/truck on 4+), back mounted mine droppers, nitrous tanks, and such.

A biker boss should have an easy blonde at +10 points, while the babe is alive he can re-roll leadership tests.

Have you already started making the models for it? What figures will you use for conversions?
