I must respectfully disagree. I think the boomgun is great at the cost. Either they deal with it and let your boyz get closer or your trukks advance or they get slammed by it. I think two belong in most horde lists. They are under appreciated now but I've noticed a trend and they are becoming more respectable lately. Really, at the point cost a ard case wagon is not too much at all considering it only needs hit a squad of beakies once to make its points. The range is not too bad either.
Now used them as transports is anither matter entirely. Boomwagons do not need passengers.Yes, it may indeed be shot down or immobilazed before it gets a shot off but then its drawn fire and done its job regardless. If it does hit, it has a respectable pie plate ordance shot that Ork can take advantage of. It insta kills a lot of troop types too. I've seen them do a lot of damage in games. Sure a SaG can be good but do not tell me its more reliable then the wagon. Just keep it in cover early, let only obscured shots hit it and get a shot in when you can.
