I just reread my codex for the I don't know how many time and I just realised that in Lootaz, Burna boyz and tank bustaz entries, there is no mention of transport options. Did I miss something or is it just because you heve to carry them in looted wagons on battlewagons ?

I hope not. How else are u meant to get tankbusters and flashgits within range shy of a battlewagon? That said I double checked and your right. I am tempted to ask at GW when I next go in but I am worried I will get answer I wont like
They would be too cheap if you transport them in a trukk. You need to get battle wagons or looted wagons for them. Kind of fitting seeing as they´ve got some mekaniaks tagging along with them now.
I´d get a looted transport with a skorcha and armoured top for the burna boyz.

I would use the new FW apocalypse rules, 3 looted rhinos as 1 heavy slot, carry almost as much as a wagon but can take deffrollas! And come standard with armoured top.

You're definately stuck with either a looted wagon or a battlewagon, but dont despair! I have used burna boyz in a battlewagon and it works quite excellently. Take a large mob with three meks with big shootas on a battlewagon and you have a very, very, hardy unit that will wade through copious amounts of firepower practically unscathed.
Don't give whatever burna's are riding in 'ard top! then they can't charge out of it with delicious power weapons!! Don't forget the stikkbomb chukka, drive up and assault ANYONE in cover, chances are they die. obviously if they've got 5+ saves burn them. I think that's a philosophy for life right there.
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

I'm actually having great success with 12 Burna Boyz in a Looted Wagon with Red Paint and Stikkbomb Chukka. Usually my opponents focus on my Trukks or 30-strong Shootas, so the Wagon can sneak up on their HQs!!! I've takin' to calling them "Da Hit Squad" or "Termie Torchas".
Pretty good for 225pts...

Hi, never been that strong on the base rules, so maybe this is covvered somewhere and I don't know it, but if I load some lootas in a waggon or looted tank, can they fire from the moving vehical? Or do they still count as having moved? (assuming it remains open topped)
-Heavy weapons cannot fire from a moving vehicle, assault weapons can fire from a moving vehicle as per the standard moving vehicle rules IE vehicle moves 6 inches may fire, more 12 cannot.
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
I just thought I'd throw out that the chances of Lootas needing a transport is pretty slim. They have an excellent range and can't use their weapons if they move so there should be little incentive to do anything other than sit still and blast things.
