Default Battlewagon Deffrolla and Killkannon upgrade sprue coming soon!

I thought I'd post this here for the boyz rather than in the rumors thread.

Some new info on the previously rumored Battlewagon upgrade sprue has been leaked. There will be a plastic upgrade sprue that contains a deffrolla and killkannon upgrade. Apparently it will initially be released with an Apocalypse formation of 3 Battlewagons and then presumably will go to direct order on the GW site. This is said to be released in August.

Good news. I'm curious what the killkannon looks like.

I'm mostly interested in the alleged 3 battlewagon formation. I'm looking at a battlewagon express list right now, so this could be useful. Still, deff rollas are cool. I haven't used a killkannon before, but they look worthwhile, so I might give them a shot.

I hope the battlewagon deal is a good one, cause that sounds tempting. Lots of good parts in there for conversions. I wish GW would rule on the tank crushing deffrolla, so until then I guess magnitize your rollas. No matter what the killkannon looks like, if you don't like it I'm sure its nothing plasticard can't fix.

I think it was listed at $13.25 GBP, so probably $20 US. It's not an exact to the current currency exchange rate, but GW doesn't pay attention to that stuff anyway.

I can pretty much confirm the existence of a plastic deff rolla. One of the regulars at my LGS worked in the direct order department of Canada. It was about 1-2 months ago that he said he had received a call about a plastic deff rolla mentioned in the WD, and when it would eb released. None of the people in the department had heard anything off this, so they looked it up in the WD amd it was indeed mentioned in there. So all they could determine was that one was being made, but had no idea when it would be released.

Any idea on how long until this box would come out, and then how long until I can direct order them?

I already own 2 battle wagons which I want rollas on, I wouldn't want to buy 3 more.

I'm not 100% sure but I think it will be a simultaneous release. I'm sure the plan is to use the sprue to sell BW 3 packs but have the individual kits available through direct order at the same time.

well just as long as I could fit the deff rolla onto my kitbashed landraider bettlewagon and as long as it turns out cheaper than the forge world one then come on GW, hurry up it's release
The deff rolla will probably look more or less like the FW one but I wonder what the killkannon will look like, maybe an orkified Earthshaker

Perhaps it will be released to tie in with the FW ork release which is rumoured to be quite soon

Don't be sure about the deffrola sprue ever being available outside the 3 Battlewagon set as GW often only sells these bits as part of a bundal- the command veichle upgrades have only ever been release in battle formation boxes (as an example)
