Default Ork Battlewagon Upgrade Pack

So, I finally started making a battlewagon from the land raider treads I got off Ebay a year ago. My big question is has anyone bought the upgrade pack from GW, and if so how big is the deffrolla that it comes with? My new battlewagon is pretty big (fits 20 orks), and I'm worried the deffrolla will be too narrow. If it comes to it I'll just scratchbuild one, but I kind of like that kit, and I need bommsquigs anyway and would need to buy both for the free shipping. So, can someone take some measurements if you have it? Thanks.

Edit: Well I ended up getting it, along with a pack of bommsquigs from Thor's suggestion. I have to say I'm a bit disappointed with it; the deffrolla is tiny. I hate how small GW vehicles are. I'm definitely going to have to beef it up a little, or it will look stupid on my battlewagon. I just hope people don't cry foul, but the guys at my LGS have been cool with all my other conversions. Besides the deffrolla the rest of the sprue is nice though, and the bommsquigs are great. Can't wait for them to blow up my own looted wagon.

Hey, the boomgun, does that come with the upgrade kit, or is it with the Battlewagon kit?

The upgrade pack comes with a kannon, there is no where to buy a boomgun; you have to make one yourself or loot one.

But your friends would rather you build one yourself instead of looting one of theirs and seeing if they recognize it :P

Did you consider buying the stompa deffrolla sprue? You get a handful of grot riggers too, and the rolla is much bigger and would probably suit your wagon alot better.

Hi,

The battlewagon upgrade pack comes with the deff rolla, a lobba and the Killkannon.

Hope this helps.

Lord Zambia. The battlewagon is done.



I do like to loot vehicles and weapons from the armies my friends collect though, its more satisfying killing a bloodcrusher with my Chaos kan.

Fire at Will, really that little kannon is supposed to be the killkannon? Man GW needs to vamp up the size of their vehicles and vehicle weapons. I'm using it as a regular kannon, because that weedy thing doesn't look like it could vaporize a squad of tac marines. I thought that other thing was a lobba, but I used it for an exhaust fitting.

Bentukaisray, hoped we helped. Get some pictures up so we can see your conversions too.

It is just a looted Battle Cannon. So the strength and range are about right for the size. I would rather they had amped up the Killkannon in the rules, to be honest.

I think you couldve beefed up the deffrolla a bit more :P (jks)

Looks great, and it gives you the perfect reason to dreadsock any opponent who asks "Is it open-topped" as a serious question

Looks good though mate, cant wait to see it painted.
