Default I built a battlewagon, waaagh!

Alright boyz here's some pics of my newly built battlewagon. As you can see my web cam sucks but I took the best quality I could. I hope this works.

The hull is from a baslisk, the cockpit and some engine bits are from a wartrukk. The kannon is the griffon's heavy mortar, the big shootas are from the old warbikes and the deff rolla is made of tank traps. Most of the other bits I used to add bulk are a combination of plastic pieces such as the basilisk plates and more tank traps, as well as popsicle sticks to board up gaps and expand the frame.

Very entertaining. ;D

As Hyena pointed out, the mini-tracks on the sponsons are awesome. I like them. I also like how there's just random pieces of everything everywhere. Little bit of Bassie here, a dash of Trukk, and some Warbike for flavor!

My one and only criticism is that the Deffrolla doesn't look to Deff-ly. Maybe beef it up with some spruce or a couple of additional tank traps...

Do you have any more cool projects coming up?

Thanks the feedback guys. Here's a couple more pics of the battlewagon. One's a rear view and the other is with my leman russ to show a size comparison. That's the only thing I'm worried about is the size I made it, it is bulkier, longer and taller than the leman but not by much. My goal was to make it just big enough to fit in my box.

The deff rolla looks ok to me, but I might end up taking it out and replacing it with something like a soup can covered in spiky bits. Right now it's got more of a grinda effect than a rolla effect.

The upgrades I was going for are 'ard case, deff rolla, armour plates, grot riggas, red paint job (obviously not painted yet, except for the old kit-bashed parts) 4 big shootas and a kannon.

Oh and for upcoming projects, maaaaaybe a big mek's stompa for apocalypse.

That second new picture shows the Deffrolla much better. At first, from the original pictures, it looked like just two X's stuck together. Now I can see it's much more killy.

Much better,
