Default 1500 Battlewagon Spam

So I had an idea the other day to simply put so much armour in front of the opponent he cannot kill it all before it ploughs through his lines. This is the concept:
Warboss - 60
Warboss - 60
3 Nobz, Klaw, Shoota/skorcha - 90
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Big shoota - 115
3 Nobz, Klaw, Shoota/skorcha - 90
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Big shoota - 115
3 Nobz, Klaw, Shoota/skorcha - 90
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Big shoota - 115
3 Nobz, Klaw, Shoota/skorcha - 90
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Big shoota - 115
3 Nobz, Klaw, Shoota/skorcha - 90
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Big shoota - 115
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Rokkit - 120
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Rokkit - 120
Battlewagon, Deff Rolla, Rokkit - 120
8 AV14 vehicles speeding towards your lines, shredding your troops and tanks with Deff Rolla's. I know i'll probably lose a couple of 'em on the way in, but I will still have enough to destroy the enemies key squads, leaving their force in tatters. I struggle to think of an army that could Field enough anti-tank firepower to stop them before they destroyed most of their anti tank units. I'm probably going mad though.

Remember that a Battlewagon is a heavy support and you only have option for 3 heavys in a normal game.

Well, first of all (and most importantly I feel), is that you'll field that list once before people decide to not play you again. Your concept is sound but it's pretty cheesy to put that many BWs on the table. However, if you insist on using something like this then the list needs major work.

* I see no bosspoles in the list, you're going to need these for sure.
* Warbosses need some wargear beyond the basic kit.
* Nobz units needs to be larger. At only 3 Nobz a unit they're testing morale for losing a single Nob, which will be your undoing. Your BWs may be hard to remove but the units in them won't be a problem.
* Nobz also need some additional wargear. If you're going for a smaller elite approach to your list then get yourself some 'eavy armor and cybork bodies on the Nobz and Warbosses. A few Painboys would be handy to have also.
* You only have two scoring units, again another big problem.

Overall, increase the size of the Nobz units, get some wargear for your units, and I'd add in some basic Boyz units too for cheap scoring units and to lessen the cheese factor of this list.

Waaghsteve, he has a legal amount of BWs believe it or not. The Nobz take them as dedicated transports, as he has for each unit, and then he has 3 more in the heavy slot.

I could drop 1 Mob of Nobs + Battlewagon + Trukk combo from my troops section and try to add some more number and some boyz. Maybe make it 1750 'cause I have a powergamey vassal tourny coming up.

If you showed me that list and told me to guess how many points it was I'd say 3000 :P If your taking Nobz with claws, just go ahead and replace them with Meganobz. They are better for thier points cost. You'd end up dropping a battlewagon or 2 for 3-4 units of 3 meganobz each. They will decimate anything that stands in their way! also, because you have fewer units of nobz, you can drop a Warboss for a big mek or wierdboy, or just more nobz if you want.

(PS a major flaw in your list is against stuff like Immortals. Assault 2 AP 4. Wait... where did all those Nobz go? :P)
