war wagon help
« on: December 31, 2017, 01:50:50 AM »
Hey guys
I'm working on my war wagon and i'm having a bit of trouble [i've built the crew and the wagon itself out of odds and ends i've accumilated and i dont know how to arm the crew]
I cant seem to find specific rules for it and all google is doing is taking me to some glitchy wiki's.
Any help would be appreciated :smile2:

The rules for the War Wagon can be found on 5th edition empire armybook or 6th ravening hordes booklet. :happy:

or you could go to SOL and look at the picture:



That will show you what weapons the crew had and what they look like.
The individual stats for the weapons might be a bit trickier.

Thanks guys
I had the old rule book but I must have misread or missed the rules. I'll just assemble the new crew to look like the old ones. If I can get a decent camera, i'll show pics when i'm done with it

The fact that they've never included this thing in latter editions of the game is a Sigmar-damned travesty. Such a cool concept, much better and fitting the Empire's theme, than the giant battle-chickens and magical altars. :dry:

@Xathrox86
I made my one out of parts of the celestial hurricanum thingy [or whatever its called] and city ruins kits. I pieced the crew together from swordsmen parts. I'm not to sure on how to use it on the tabletop, so i'll be using it as a chariot.

There are rules for it around somewhere.  And suspect could be adapted if need be for a different edition than when it came out.

I think that the last rules for it were in the Warhammer Chronicles, for the 6th edition. Fidelis could probably say something more on that topic.

I like the old model, but is it worth it's points. Yes you get the nice impact charge, but for a crew of six models you only get 1d6 worth of combat miniatures.
That's bad when 3 of the miniatures have firing weapons. OK when the model was made we could not get Hochland Longrifle or Repeating Muskets, so that's 4 shots just there, both with armour piercing.
Not sure on the Blunderbuss, remember there being rules in a White Dwarf and it taking a turn to reload.
The other 3 weapons are combat. Ball and Chain, same rules as flail, +2 strength in the fire round of combat. Hooked Halberd, no rules, but at minimum same rules as halberd +1 strength. Man Catcher ? any one's guess.

So sorry in my humble opinion I would rather take a Master Engineer with either of the ranged weapons.

Man catcher was killing blow.
