No this is not illegal, coming straight from GW's website

Thank you VERY much.  I went to GW to buy my BFG book yesterday, and its sold out  :angry:   Because of the campaign at my club, a load of playerss have now started buying it.  Which is a good thing, but not when I cant get one.  :laugh:

I cant look at it at the moment as I'm not at my computer, and this one doesn't have acrobat reader, so I cant open it.  Unless anyone can show me how to.  :blush:

You could always just download Acrobat and install it?  :)

Just restarted the computer after doing that very thing.  :;):

Though it did take over 30mins to download!!!!!!   :o

I'm about to print them off now.  :cool:

I have already decided which one I want.  The one with the bombardment cannon.  I think a bombardment cannon is better than lances, and I dont want to rely on passing leaderships for torps.  If only I could write a new list for my campaign.

What do you guys think of the model?  I think it looks like an ugly battlestar galactica.  :D

My plan is to get two... The first will be the bombardment cannon. It is a great vessel. I wil then probably get one out of bits to create my own variant to make it a bit more personal and Orky.

Oh I plan on getting as many as I can (hide from my missus  :;):     )

And like you, the bombardment first.  I read in the WD that they are interchangeable, so I might be able to blue tac/ magnetic the weapon fitments, so that I can use which ever variant whenever I want to.

I too was thinking of the bombardment cannon version.
The lances are a little gimicky, but the Slamblasta does have the most powerful side batteries of all 4.  D6+6.

But then against the Deathdeala (bombardment cannon one) has Soopa Enginez.

Whats an Ork supposed to do?  :)

True, the Slambusta does have the best broadside guns, but it sacrifices an extra set of weapons compared to the others, for just a +2 to the firepower. I would rather have the heavy gunz.

The dethdeala still has more powerful side batteries over the hammer too (D6=4 as opposed to D6+2).

These improved engines I'm a little wary of.  One of my strengths I use is keeping the fleet tightly packed together, and concentrating all fire on one cruiser at a time.  If I use this the battleships will be charging off faster than my Escorts!!!!  :o

The slambasta does still have the side heavy guns.
The normal side gunz are a nice d6+6 too.

You mainly just loose the prow heavy gunz for the lances.
