    How big is too big for a battlewagon

    Hi,


    I just bought a german WW2 mobile artillery kit (1:35 scale) to convert into a battlewagon. I'm worried that its a bit big and people might complain about it. Its dimensions are roughly 12 inches (13 with dethrolla) by 5 inches but it does look the right scale its just really long. At least it will actually look like it can carry 20 orks

    Has anyone used really big battlewagons and do you get any complaints if you do?

    I use one old WW2 russion tank to carry my 20 'ard boyz and it's large and long enough to carry them all. Peoples dont bother about lenght, especialy if it allows them a better view on it's AV12 sides. It is 10'' to 12'' long easily.

    Well, if it's bigger than the table than stop .

    I'd say no bigger than a landraider.

    Fair place to stop I'd call a baneblade. Couple guys at the store have 'em converted into Battle Wagons. Expensive as all hell, but who cares? I'd call that a reasonable size limit.

    Do not meddle in the affairs of Tyranids, for you are crunchy, and good with ketchup.

    My opinion - if the 20 boyz are actually gonna ride that bad boy, then its gonna be big by default. In generally, bigger is a disadvantage for the player because its easier to target and harder to get cover, so I doubt too many people will complain unless you're bringing in some 2 foot wide monstrosity that gives complete cover to the rest of your army.

    Same thing i was thinking, i wouldn't object to a bigger target, more chances of blasting it!

    Now making it smaller, that'll raise problemo's.
