Warhammer 40K – Ork Battlewagon Free Paper Model
Posted on Jan 12 2013 at 11:32:08 PM in Visual Arts
This paper model is an Ork Battlewagon (4th Edition), a common type of large Ork vehicle, based on the game Warhammer 40K, the papercraft was created by Patoroch. Designed to carry a whole fighting mob of Orks, plus any Gretchin, Snotlings, Squigs or shiny things that may belong to the mob, Battlewagons are typically large, heavy and noisy. Ownership of a Battlewagon marks an Ork out as particularly prestigious or ‘flash’. A typical Battlewagon owner is most likely a Nob of some description, though various Oddboyz may have access to Battlewagons at certain times. Warbosses often mount themselves and their immediate retinue in Battlewagons when travelling to battle, and may have more than one if their retinue is of sufficient size.
Like all Ork vehicles, Battlewagons do not conform to a set standard, although the Mekboyz of the Ork clans do tend to lean towards building their Battlewagons based around an initial chassis design that is somehow known to them almost instinctively. Past this initial point however, Battlewagons will tend to look rather unique as various Meks and decoratively-minded owners get their hands and hammers on the vehicle. Most Battlewagons come with flagpoles bolted on somewhere so the owner can display his personal or clan banner in a prominent place, as well as thick armour plate in most locations – though many Battlewagons are open-topped.
A Kannon, Zzap Gun, Lobba, or a Lifta-Droppa along with an array of Big Shootas and Rokkit launchas are popular weapons choices for a Battlewagon. They are not particularly fast and so not all that popular with Mekboyz, who prefer their own rides to be significantly more speedy, not to mention kustomized. The chief advantages of Battlewagons is that they are sturdy and well-armoured, offering the passengers good protection and can transport a large number of Orks and their equipment directly into battle.
