Anyone use him and if you do how do you use him? I recently converted a Warboss on Warbike and I plan on being able to double him as Wazdakka when I want to use him Im just having trouble seeing how he can be effective for his price cost. He costs more than a fully tricked out boss on bike, and isnt as good in CC. His weaponry is good, but he is still only BS2 and his gun can't punch through MEQs. Besides fluff, the only way I can possibly see him being somewhat effective is to run him as a lone wolf, relying on the T6 and 4+ invuln save.

Tanks. He slaughters tanks. between his str 8 dakkacannons, kmb and his power klaw he shreds tanks.
Also allowing bikes to be troops can be a handy little trick aswell, your opponents often don't expect them to be scoring.
To field a Warboss on a bike as a count as Wazdakka, you have to give the Boss one hell of an awesome bike! This fact alone makes him worth his points, if yer a proppa Ork, anyways.
As a model, he's fairly decent for his points -- he's loaded out with more wargear than you could possibly know what to do with, but then again, what what could you expect from the most badass biker that ever lived? He can pump out enough dakka to ruin anybody's day, oh and he's a Big Mek with (almost) a Warboss's stats. All for a little price tag of 180 points.
Okay, so perhaps he isn't the most efficient model you could purchase for your army. But really, you don't field Wazdakka just to field Wazdakka. It's his army-wide special rule that you take him for.. Warbikes can be taken as troops! These are one of the shootiest units in our army, couple that with their speed and enhanced duribility, then throw on top of that the ability to turbo boost onto objectives.. ah, that's the reason you field him! Warbikes work best as support, using their speed to get them into combat to bail out another unit of boyz. And as I said, they can dish out some crazy ammount of dakka! Now, depending on your army list or play style, you might be just fine with Warbikes as FA. But, if you want to field Warbikes AND other FA choices (TL-Rokkit Buggies), or to give those Warbikes the ability to score.. then that's why you'd field Wazdakka.
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.
