If i use a Land Raider and convert it to a battlewagon, will that be tournament legal, or is it too big now that we have a smaller battlewagon model?
GW says that as long as 75% of the model is Games workshop then it will be tournament legal, as long as all the weapons are accounted for, and it looks orky enough, i have a load of converted truck rhinos, and i went to GT and they didnt give me any crap
Lets justify this from a business standpoint.
You paid them $50, plus extra parts and supplies, to convert one of their products into another one of their products.
Additionally, many others have done this, as there was no model for the Battlewagon for the lloonnggeesstt time.
It wouldn't exactly make sense for them to say no.
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.

Da Moo Kowz is da drinkinest Orks of dem all!
Yeah, I think it should still legit as far as I Know---someone mentioned this in a recent Battlewagon thread.
Also, I was wondering where I can find information on requirements for GW tournaments and if I can find any in my area.
Lastly, what is GT?
GT is Grand Tournament, its the big Warhammer tourny
Yea i hated all the old truck models so i made my own, but remember in 5th edition everything is wysiwyg, so all upgrades that you buy have to be accounted for on the model
In tourney-play, I believe it is still the case, that if your custom-mod-job of a model is vastly different from the GW official model, your opponent can ask to drawn LOS/Range to the footprint of what the model SHOULD be. At the very least you need to discuss it beforehand with the Opp/RTT ect. In a tourney I ran last year, we had an ork player that had a "lowrider" type battlewagon that was literally hugging the ground and standard sized troops blocked LOS. I would argue that LOS could still be drawn to what would reasonably be considered the hull. Now that we have a BW kit that is X-inches high, it is easier to compare.
Armies thus far....
Well this is lucky because I was going to make a list with 3 raiders as battlewagons.
See, i was thinking that because we now DO have a model, if we have others that are smaller or bigger, that Judges will disallow them. (because, a landraider is in fact biggger then the battlewagon)
That won't be a problem. All the forgeworld Battlewagons and at least half of all custom Battlewagons out there are significantly larger than the standard Ork Battlewagon. In general, 'larger' is usually not a problem, especially with the Orks, where almost nothing has 'exact' specifications.
