Hi ladz

I am asking this here, as I don't want to derail Eddie the Troll's thread any further, how big are mega tanks? Are we talking battlewagon size, or something closer to a Chimera? Just to stop me from building something unintentionally oversized. (Intentionally oversized? That's fine :) )

Thanks

The forge world grot megatank is almost the exact same size as the GW battlewagon.

That's the best I can do! There used to be a photo of one side by side an ork battle wagon, but I can't find it now. But basically it's the same length and width (within a few tenths of an inch), and roughly the same height in the center as the kannon assembly is high.

Uhhh, undecided as yet. I do like the "land battleship" vibe the forgeworld model has going on. And I have wanting an excuse to do a Dai Gurren for a while. On the other hand though, there is the T 35.

Just waiting for the spark of inspiration.

Because I was just looking this up again, and because this thread comes up as a top search....I found the battle wagon comparison photos!

All these pictures makes me want a grot mega tank... but that FW handling is a killer. Making me save up my pennies for a large order to avoid the shipping costs. :(

Regular grot tanks are basically in a 4 inch square box. You can build within those parameters.
Just cause wez a bit pinkish don't mean we ain't proppa!

I believe the mega tank is a bit taller, and wider, but around twice as long.
