    Lootas in a Battle Wagon

    Good idea? I noticed they weren't even an option in the "Best unit to go in your Battle Wagon poll" :s Why not? Seems like a good idea, you could even give the Battle Wagon some weapons cos it won't need to move to get them in range of something... A battle wagon with weapons! GASP! hehe just kidding. Would anyone consider it, I can't decide between them, Burna boyz or normal Boyz.

    No

    Bad idea. Believe it or not, they're a lot safer outside the battlewagon, and in cover, then they are inside it. This is actually realistic, because being in a tank is by no means safe, because tanks are targets for anti-tank weapons, and if the tank blows up, it usually doesn't go very well for the passengers inside.

    Unless you're playing against someone with little to no experience, they're going to have both anti-infantry and anti-armor weapons. Hiding them in a battlewagon is expensive (given it can never move, or else they can't fire), and merely changes what type of weapon they're vulnerable to.

    Instead of putting them in a battlewagon, use the points to field a second unit of lootas. With Orks, 'more' is always a better idea than 'tougher'. Before buying extra armor for your infantry and vehicles, field as many of each as you can.
