That's it? I'm not very impressed. Looks like I'll still just be converting my own battlewagons.

It does look a bit Noddy. I'd be interested to see how customisable it was though.

Nice find there Spot-the-Grot.

(I spotted the Grot, he's in the topmost turret.)

:thinking he'll make one at home for nothing. From a small cyclops:

i think its one of worst things theyve done in while i at first thought it would be quite a promising idea until i saw it , I think people are still gonna prefer making their own and buying the forgeworld variant instead of this.

Not exactly what I had pictured in my head.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Might be worth it for the bits, but I certainly wouldn't field one like that, hmm, think its time to go ebay hunting for some old knackered GI Joe vehicles.

Oh and explains where that Truck got the tracks from in White Dwarf.

It's certainly better than i thought it'd look. I don't think it's bad, personally. A little overly-cartoony, and not something I'd buy myself, but, it's very orky, and there are worse ways to spend the money.

It looks...interesting. A little small though, and too much like the illustration in the books...I don't like ork vehicles looking like illustrations, because that means they're meant to look the same.

It does look pretty shitty. I don't think I would field one, but I am planning to buy one, just for the bitz. That shoota turret on top, for example, would have been nice for the Chimerork. That claw has potential too.

Fucking awful looking kit, but the bits look usable.
