So I was wondering does anyone uses pump wagons, and are they good or do they usually never hit thier mark. If I do run them it will be two wagons in one rare slot alongside my giant.
I havent tested it in my NG fledgling, but it has already captured my heart, the model and the rules, it seems weak against most things with a T4 so i dont know.
10/10 fluff, model, rules
EDIT. rubbish spelling

Pump wagons are good in pairs, they aren't graet but EVERYONE remembers the first time they come off and that creates psychological warfare, allowing you to manipulate their army into areas you wnat them to be.
They're great fun. Cheap chariots, which you can happily chuck forwards at your opponent to act as a nice little distraction. And if they get ignored, they will hit harder than might be expected. They're always good for comedy value if nothing else.

The first time I used them, good times. Long story short I deployed them in a way that by turn 2 I was calling myself and idiot; they would never get into combat, no use, wasted pts. The pump wagons were behind the battle line, then enemy fliers dropped in behind. I pointed the pump wagons at them and there was a glorious crunch as both wagons hit their intended targets (the fliers would have hit woods if they had ran).
Although I still think they would have been better mixing it up on the front, they did serve as a good counter for the backside, with the 360 point and release.

Baby boys are like free bulldozer rental tickets. You have no idea what you're going to do with them but you know they are awesome!
Nice idea! A novel use for them certainly, but a legitimate one. I can't see a problem with using them as a war machine protection unit possibly as they're cheap enough that if it was wasted it's not a huge chunk of points.
Right, but isn't a Pump Wagon a rare/ half a rare choice? If so, is it that viable having rare choices guard warmachines?
I don't often use rares ayway (occasionally a doom diver or giant) but I'll often only be getting a troll or 2 as a point filler rather than a main strategy so I often have a slot open.
