Which are nifty... But... Is the intent of them to allow all races access to
the Imperial weapons section? Or should each race have access only to their
own racial weapons? (Orks should have access to a subset of the impy list, I
guess, but I can't see them with Assault Cannons...)

Thanks for all the work, Colen.

According to Tim Huckleberry, the idea is that only Chaos and
Imperial forces have access to the big, untitled list. Chaos also
has access to its own unique list. Everyone else uses their own
racial list only. So no Dark Eldar Guass cannons or Necron battle
cannons or IG Brightlances. This makes sense, although it still
allows things like Khorne-dedicated vehicles with Noise Marine
vehicle weapons, storm bolters for Chaos etc.

But the rules in WD have no such restriction. Indeed, since orks for
example can take looted vehicles why would they not have access to
looted weapons? Furthermore said weapons also come with a BS category of
2, standard ork BS, whereas humans have a BS of 3. That said I've no
problem should WD clarify that the unspecified weapons chart is humans,
mutants and chaos only.

Well, there's Frateris Militia and Hive Gangers - basically your
generic 10-50 cultist-type units - they have BS 2. And yes, the
rules in the WD have no such restriction on selection, but that's the
intention, and I'm sure you'll be seeing an FAQ on it soon enough, so
you might as well start playing that way.

It does make sense for Orks to be able to loot imperial weapons. I
imagine these rules wil be eventually designated "Opponents
permission only". If that happens, you might as well cook up a few
Ork vehicles with imperial weapons, since anything you field would
need your buddies' permission anyways, regardless of what's on it.

I'd quite like to nail Tim Huckelbury's feet to the floor, and I mean
that in the nicest possible sense of the word. Someone ask him what
weapons Orks are meant to get when they have a targetter, and what they
pay for them?

These are some of the vast assumptions I had to make, due to the
appalling holes in the vehicle creation rules

I assumed that everyone could get the normal list, and other races could
also get their racial weapons.

Thanks!

I think the idea is that Orks can't get higher than BS 2, and so
can't get a targeter, in the same way that a targeter can't take your
Dark Eldar above BS 4. Orks would just twin-link everything
instead.
BTW, as far as I can tell both the targeter and souped-up engines are
completely useless, since in both cases there is a way to buy the
desired level without ever applying an upgrade. Buying BS 3 +
targeter is the same as buying BS 4, and upgrading from Lumbering to
Agile back in the "Work Out Speed" section can be done without ever
touching the souped up engines. You wouldn't even bother with
lumbering. Hell, you could go straight to Fast.

Yeah, you'd never see an Ork use equipment that belonged to someone
else! Of all the races in the galaxy, they're the least likely to nick
bits of enemy tanks and nail them together! I'm sure GW would never let
them use another races weapons or equipment!

OK.
