Welcome to Librarium Online!
I am thinking about getting a battlewagon in the near future, but I dont want to use the actual model, or atleast not as is. So I was looking to see if anyone had any possible ideas or conversion they have done they wouldnt mind showing off. Also I would like some opinions on using a storm raven as the base model for one, and let it get Orkified. Any pictures or anything else would be helpful, because Google image search does not give me enough ideas.
I converted an Imperial Guard Valkyrie into a pretty awesome battlewagon. I just attached a deffrolla, plenty of armor plates all over, and some oversized wheels alongside it (the extra weight of the rolla and armor keeps it from flying, but the Orks feel it's more than a fair enough trade-off ^_^).
The only problem was I had to trip the wings down a bit, or else it had a lot of trouble maneuvering around buildings.
I used to have a picture, but my computer died, and I lost all the data.
Land Raiders also work well, and even a Leman Russ will do (although you'd really have to add a lot of Orky stuff).

i found a nice conversion from a normal ww2 model ratio 1:35 that was an half-track vehical with mountins of plasticard and pannels from a bits box it gives you a nice base model to start and only your mind will set the limits on whats possible plz rate me if this is any help
There are three types of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who cannot.
yep just lyk that but with tracks on the back has better affect
Well I was at my FLGS picking up 2 of my last 3 boxes of orks and a box of gretchin. They were out so I got a box of Ogre kingdom Gnoblars which work just as well, model them with left of stikk bombs, and since they are so weak it doesnt really hurt anyone, plus plenty more to add here and there for funny ork stuff. Sorry Im extremely tired and cant sleep, so I ramble... But I ended up getting a Stormraven. I feel KINDA bad about destroying this model but I think I'll live. Going to scratch the cock pit window like crazy and put a Boy in there and a gretchin in the turret on top. To fire big shoota #1, and I'll have two more hand made magnatized on the wings.
I think Im going to leave it at the normal height, possibly cut the stem down just a bit so it's not so tall.
But I wasn't quite sure what to do for the deffrolla, I was kinda thinking putting a net on the front and have it connected with the bottom of the base and put hooks and left over limbs from my various marines, necrons, dark eldar, and tau and have it like a shokk net. Kinda makes since I tank shock and they get caught in the net hince why they take so many attacks. What do you think? As I said before if this does not make since I am severly sleep deprived ( It took me twice as long as it should have to type this).
i made a deff rola from the tube on the inside of a roll of tin foil give it a light brush with pva to water seal it, i used plasticard to block the ends up, then peirced some holes in it and placed spikes about an inch big coming out of it (i used cocktail swords cut down) once base coated it looked like a combine harvester style deff rolla AWSOMEEEEEEEE
