So I'm creating my own super heavy Ork vehicle, it's a vehicle thats been thought of by the Warboss of my army called Bloodbringer and the fortress is called "BIG ONE", I just thought it would be a fun thing to do . So heres the rules for it....
Structure points 5
No transport capacity
Mega Deth! kannon (Basically the same weapon you get on the stompa but at STR D)
Co-axial giga shoota
Shokk attack gun
4 Twin-linked Supa shootas (Big shoota with 5 shots)
Kustom force field
So thats all it's weapons and equipment, now onto its special rules. I haven't thought of any names for two of them yet, but this is still wip, I want to see what my loacal GW staff member says about my idea, so the first special rule is that when its last structure point is lost, an automatic aporkalyptic explosion happens because of the vast amount of weapons, on a 1-4 everything with 3D6" takes a STR9 AP2 hit or on a 5-6 everything within 2D6" takes a STR D AP2 hit.
The second special rule is called, CAN'T DIS FING GO QUICKER!? Basically the grots that control Warboss Bloodbringers "BIG ONE" get bored of its slow speed so they shoot the closest friendly unit with the biggest gun on the fortress just for fun on a 1, anything other than a 1 and the tank shoots it's biggest gun as normal.
The third and final special rule is called, OI YOU! SHOOT DIS HERE GUN! This represents my warboss wanting as many orks fighting on the front line as possible and not controling the fortress, so he has hundreds of grots working the fortress with no more than 5 meks on board, just to look after them and to represent that, the ballistic skill of it is 3 instead of 2.
So thats it, I'm thinking of making it between 700-1000pts, the name is a bit rubbish aswell so any suggestions would be great! I don't know what I'm going to use for the chassis either, I'm thinking about using the shadowsword kit and building up from that using ork bits, does anyone have any ideas?

I'd guess this puppy would be several thousand points. This thing has more firepower than any vehicle I've seen.
My advice: convert and paint this badboy and then worry about making house rules.
I realised that it's bigger than even a kustom battle fortress, dare I say it, even give a stompa a run for it's money, it's just that at my store the guys have who own Imperial armies own so many super-heavies and tanks between them! Theres 2 full leman russ formations, a reaver titan, at least 6 baneblades plus other variations, an emperor titan with two more being worked on, some guy has 75 blood claws, around 30 TH/SS/CM terminators, 7 landraiders, 40 wulfen guard, you get the idea but they have loads more than what i've just said and thats just between 3 of the people who turn up for apocalypse battles, so can you kinda see why it's so heavily armed now? Obviously they don't always use all that stuff at once but I've seen it all out and our apocalypse games are fun but it's always one sided due to the bad guys having lots of infantry.
That's one thing that always annoyed me about apoc games, who ever has the most super heavies is probably going to win.
Yep that sucks :/
