If it was me building (like id have the money to afford the kits...) i would do design numbah one and put a low profile turret ontop with a long barreled cannon "like the one on your lungbursta" ;) It might ruin the look you want, but id like it :biggrin

I love #3, Kr00za. I think that it looks more ded 'ard than the others. But, if you are going to stick with #1, I think that Nosher hit the nail on the head with his suggestions. Can't wait to see you start to build this. :cheers

I like design numba 1 the best. Its looks the most killy and eavy out of the three. I also like the low profile cannon you have in the latest design you did. Is there any way of compromising a bit more between those two ideas. Otherwise ide just keep design numba one cuz i like the big death rolla. Hope this is helpful :?
LoL at teh Sole...

Cheerz for all the imput guyz. Ive decided on the WW1 style for sure, and will draw up plans today. Ive also bought £60 worth of FW gear for this project. That might seem excessive, but its not so bad... a FW ZzapGun woild take me at least 3hrs to build, I charge around £7 per hour for my work... making one ZzapGun worth £21. FW sell em for £10... I know that make little sence but it how Ive justified my spending ;)

I love the low slung style for a battlewagon and thought your reversed landraider was great (looted it myself). Will watch this one closely to see how it ends up. :thumbs
That ain't gonna work!

No, thats perfect reasoning. I figure you have a job, so you have to spend time working, so dont have the time to indulge in projects so buying one is easier. Plus the FW ones look ded sexy ;)

That makes perfect sense but now I want to know what 3 hours of zzap gun work would look like, do you have photos of ones you've done before? What other Forgeworld goodies are going into this one?

We like the original (1st post sketch). We must opine that perfect symmetry with the sponsons does not appeal to our aesthetic sensibility as it applies to Orks. The offset side sponsons give it that 'land ship' look, like the Orks took an Ironclad and put traks on it.
The only constant in the Universe is change.
The wise adapt.

Great design, but will the big shootas only be able to fire in a backwards/sideways arc?

I like the design, Krooza, and the layout of the weapons. I feel it needs another layer on top of that rather low superstructure - some kind of 'bridge' (not just a cupola) would look cool. Perhaps something a little like a U-Boat conning tower, only more square and squat looking.

I've had an idea for the problem of no big shootas firing forwards. Seeing as you're going to have fairly large sponsons for the zzap guns, perhaps you could mount some small turrets on the top of those, sort of like the little AA guns on battleships. Modified your picture to show what it might look like. [attachmentid=13072]

I've got it! :! Why not make the sponsons baneblade-style? With the zzap gun in the main sponson and a big shoota turret on top.
