me and a friend played a very scenery built up area like the warboss shrunk i hive or something and the 2 tanks started in oppostie corners and we played a 2x2 we also had a battle wagon start in th middle and the random player using it cant see the 2 grot tanks and instead were ever they are they go to the next place and remove there tank before the battle wagon player came and put a token in its place and also put a token in another place it could have gone to show the grots can see the big wagon anywere but the wagon cant see the smae taks when the battle wagon move into line of sight of a grot tank that tank is put back in place until it is out of sight on the battle wagon it was very good and fun should try it

Question, how big are these "grot tanks"? I like the idea but I don't want to pay some odd $60 for a looted wagon to play a sub-game...

Preferably smaller. I imagine about bike-sized personally.

Wait, are the rules on the first page the updated ones found later in the thread, or are they older than the ones deeper in the thread? Gonna try and have a night or two of this with my group.

Thanks. How have people faired doing a 1v1 style tournament? I'm thinking of trying to get my group to play a 10 game tournament over the course of a couple nights, provided they are game for it. Seems pretty easy.
