I reckon use a reversed classic ww1 type like on a landraider it adds to the dethrolla and trakks becoming one whole krushing weapon. I'm interested why you called it a fortress does this mean it is going to be outrageously cool like everyother one you do

The looks meaty enough. ITs also got good looking mounting points for internal track wheels. If not the Churchill one looks cool. :thumbs I'll look out for a warehouse when I'm out and about in London with a large "Kr00zAz Wurkshop" sign outside. You seem to churn these out at an alarming rate! :/

Well Ive given it some thought. All have pro's n cons. The Russ n Churchill shape are the easiest to blend together as both halfs sit the right way up. But theyre both pretty boring to look at. I think Ill go for the WW1 look. Its a tried n tested design and I had great results from it last time ;)

Erez a ruff idea of wat Im aiming for. The DefRolla is as tall as the trakkz, so the whole front end is one big krusha ;)

Ohmygosh. I was going to say go for the Russ style, but with the Deffroller like that that is a simply INSANE tank! It looks ready to smash straight through anything. Hmmm, I wonder if you should use house rules in Cities uv Deff to let all these mad Deffrollas flatten buildings? The image of this thing smashing through a hab-block and disgorging mass Orks is incredible!

Nice, I like the built in deathroller, looks nice and mean. Liking the low-slung chassis too. How wide are you looking to make it?

I really like the design you've come up with sofar Kr00zA, have you decided on what weapons it's going to be equipped with though? Will it be a case of just deciding what will be there when you stick it on?

Ill prolly make the trakkz even wider coz its extra length will alow it. 35mm sounds gud. No firm plans on weaponz as yet, Im still planning its final design. Erez a different setup I came up with. It uses a smaller DefRolla but theres room for a kannon up front.

I think I prefer your design in post #24, having a big kannon up front is good but is there any way of working one into your previous design? Edit: Don't get me wrong, I like the other design but personally I prefer the earlier one.

i prefer the "simple lengthed Russ" method - i used that myself on a test piece i made for my I.G., and it worked very well (i also lowered the ground clearance and raised the roof slighly, to the point where it would just about fit a Chimera ramp on the back :biggrin).

however you make it im sure it will look great, though :thumbs
(im still trying to repress urges to buy a landraider and put it together back to front... :love)

cheers

No worries, just be honest about the designs, thats wat Im looking for. The massive defrolla on the first design means a kannon cant be added unless I add some more hight to the hull, which I dont want to do. And the main point of the first design is that the front is one big krusha.

I suppose if you keep the massive deffrolla and put skorchas/big shootas in the sponsons it'd be an amazing anti-infantry vehicle. Perhaps you could do both designs? If you're going to sell them then there's no monetary loss is there? I'd love to see the one with the kannon built aswell but I'm sure we'll all understand if you don't do it ;)

Hmmmm - tough one Kr00za. I like designs #1 and #3 for asthetic reasons - they look right - but I definitely see the armament issue. I'd just assumed you'd slap a turret on top at some point, to get around the limited fire arcs of those double sponsons. Here's a suggestion that might make your WW I chasis more workable - you're going to need a driver's compartment peaking up and over that deathroller anyway, you could add some front armament there as well as long as it was also low profile, yes? How about rokkits? You could keep the low profile to the front of the WW I design by just adding a whole bay of rokkits (maybe tilted slightly up to arc over the deathroller) to the side of the driver's viewport. It would suffer from the same limited firing arc as the side sponsons, but it shouldn't have any effect on the profile of the vehicle and would give you more forward facing firepower. That said - you are going for a battlefortress rather than a battlewagon with this one, so that does kind of require something heavy up front, doesn't it? This beast looks perfect for a monsterous doomsday pattern battlewagon with big shootas pointing out everywhere - but with only the sponsons and no turret it is going to be tough to find weapon mounts for kannons & zzap guns.
So - whenever dem doks finish staplin' yer arms back on Haky, why don't you an yer boyz come down fer a visit. We'll 'av a few squigaritas, throw a few grots around an' discuss who dis 'ere choppa really belongs to...

These Waaaghs are a cross between a mass migration, holy crusade, looting party and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure.

Really like design #1 As for armemement, you could go with some kind of Lobba. It could be encaved(sp, word?) in the hull so that only a short part of the barrel show over the main body?

Ive tweeked the WW1 design. The DefRolla is a bit smaller and set quiet far back from the front. This alows for some front mounted weaponz.

Design #1 looks great, 3 looks a bit odd to me. The smaller deffroller looks odd too in the last Pic you posted. Stick with the bigun!
