Default Blood Axe Heavy Support suggestions

I'm currently planning the next build for my Orks after Speed freaks and it will be a Blood Axe Deff Orks of Krieg army. Now I know I'll be taking two Battlewagons with Killkannons that will be looted Russes but I can't decide what I should do for the third slot.

I was thinking either a looted wagon made from a Medusa most likely but the other option would be 3 Killa Kanz modeled as mini tanks (think Metal Slug) with either grot zookas or KMBs.

So what do you guys think? All out tanks with pie plates or some mini tanks to mix it up a bit?

I like both boomwagons and kans, but recently I've really fallen for kans with grotzookas. I've seen conversions of mini tank kans, and they look awesome. I would go with the kans.

If you were going to go with a straight tank I think I'd just take a third battlewagon instead of a boomwagon. The blood axes are all about copying humans, and the three russ combo will be seen more on the battlefield now with the new codex.

I think the mix would be more effective than three wagons; only because it would give you more options and tactics during the fight. It would probably be more fun to have variety in your list as well.

I'm leaning towards the Kans myself. I agree with Malcaor, the mix seems like it would be more effective. Hell, nothing wrong with 3 AV14 vehicles and they'd do well for sure, but the Kans being in there gives you more flexibility in my opinion. Grotzookas are fun, no doubt, but KMBs on Kans are nice too, one of the few places where it really pays off having them.

What about looted wagons? I haven't tried them myself so I can't vouch for them, but IIRC they have a better cannon than the battlewagon does.

metal slug style tanks for kans! what more do you need!

it would be a nice mix as well so tactically its probably the better choice
