Default Battlewagon Bunker...is it a feasible idea?

The idea is plop a large Loota squad inside a naked Battlewagon in cover, for sake of extra protection. Is this a feasible idea so long as there are a lot more armored targets to shoot?

Feasible? Sure, but that's some expensive extra protection you're buying. For the same cost as your protection, you could get yourself 6 more Lootas, a far better investment in my opinion.

It's quite a feasible (and common) tactic, but as Thor pointed out, keep in mind the cost. I would definitely go with extra Lootas, though. I think they'd last longer on the field as well. Most players would see the Battlewagon and instantly train every AT gun they've got on it. Just think of the extra Lootas as 6 ablative wounds... that shoot.

Like its been pointed out above, 6 more lootas is much better than movable cover. If you want to protect them, put them in some strong cover, or distract your opponent with boyz or grotz.
