Welcome to Librarium Online!
i just wrote up my 1000 pts kos army, and was wondering what to put in to make it 1500 pts. I was thinking a souped up battlewagon w/ a bunch o' 'ard boyz would be awesome, smashin' through everything, but truks might be better. I was just wonderin which would be more practical, i know the battlewagons cooler.
It would be easier to reply to this if you gave more detail e.g. what is your current army list, what would you put in the trukks and what are you arming the battlewagon with?
Anyway personally I would choose the 'Ard Boyz in the Battlewagon because I have both units in my footsloggers army. However I did choose 'Ard Boyx because my normal troops were being shot up by AP 5 weapons. Trukk Boyz are boring because they don't have the same character as specialist mobs. Also the battlewagon conversion project is a brilliant one. Mine's actually a bit of a midget. Based (I say this very loosely as there are a lot of other parts and green stuff involved) on a rhino a friend of mine gave me without hatches, weapons, marines a shell. Now armed with a Zzap Gun, Twin-linked Rokkit Launcha, Twin-Linked Big Shoota and 5 removable big shootas.
If you still find it hard deciding it is cheaper to buy the battlewagon and 'Ard Boyz compared to Trukks and some other Boyz.
tactickly, battle waggons only work when you have at least 3. this is because they are just too scarry, and are one of the biggest fire magnets in the game. they arnt durible enough to survive every ounce of fire power from an enamy army, for more that 2 turns.
Your other option with the BW is to get a mek with a KFF in there by various meens.
if i where you(and i am) i would take the trukk boyz
