Hopefully Grots got some love. Because just +1 to hit for "super" grots seems pretty meh.

A 12" S3 pistol from a T2 5ppm chaff unit.

Meh I was hoping for a new model today

It is when you only have a 12" S3 AP- pistol weapon. It's possible they buff up grot blastas slightly, or they introduce a new grot unit, but if all things stay the same as is, its effectively a waste of ink.

Yea those super grots sound pretty useless. Would be better if they got a defensive buff, like a -1 to hit or something, because you hardly take grots for their offensive output.

We obviously don't have the full picture yet for Zogrod, but given how precious the HQ slots are in an ork list, and given the fact that the "super grots" rule is utterly worthless and his strike last is both random and super conditional.
I can't see him getting into many peoples matched play lists.
Which is a shame as the model is great.

I hope its not a sign of whats to come for the codex, we don't want random rules because Orks, we want stuff that actually works on the battlefield.

Even hair squigs have multiple hair-like thin stands of ...hair. Whatever this model has is big and chunky, even by GW's recent standards after they lost the STC files for sculpting textured hair.

Maybe they're a new breed of chunkier hair squig. Really this is not a design choice on the mini that bothers me. He certainly looks way more orky than the new Painboss that they previewed a few weeks back.

The new painboss is designed for you to flip the top of his head open and put a snotling in it driving him like a robot suit (if the standard snotlings are too big, there are a couple of smaller ones on one of the AoS goblin wizard's base) that i'm sure would work

I mean, he's much more skinnier and spindlier, so if that what means Orky for you, are Gretchin the Orkiest Orks around?

I don't see them mention that it's meant to be actual hair. Just that whatever it is, it's not actually his hair and that it's stapled on.

I was hoping we'd get some new grots to go alongside him, but some things aren't meant to be.

Also, why is his base so big? And did it need to have a scenic base? His base looks like it's just a big crack, so I don't see the point

Nobody ever said orks had to be burly sacks of muscle. The Painboss looks a bit more like he'd fit right into a Dark Eldar army if you painted him in anything but green.

Because Orks never had prosthetics or cybernetics? And being literally made for fighting kinda leads itself to being burly sacks of muscle

I assume the first part is sarcasm, since cyborks have been around forever, Zagstruk has his power klaw legs, etc.


Zodgrod is a bit lanky, though making him goblin-y is actually pretty clever and not something I had considered. Good juxtaposition from the current runtherder model, who's just a big fat guy. I think it works though, since Zod's an outcast who hangs out with grots, and normal runtherders get grots to do all their heavy lifting (and are probably snacking on them all the time.)

As for the Painboss, I think he's orky enough. Like Zodgrod, he's based off an old metal model (though not a named character.) Plus it's funny that he has a very high-tech mechanical hand in his backpack, but opted for the claw one instead.

20+ gretchins get a native +1 to hit anyway, and since they have crappy S3 no AP 12'' pistols in practise smaller units won't achieve anything with a +1 to hit. Due to the low range they might even not be in range of anything if they're doing some actions, as they typically do work in the ork deployment zone.

Of couse 30'' S4 AP-1 or -2 that are also able to do actions for chaff troop unit would be extremely good, but I'm afraid that's another book you have in mind .

It's not unlikely that gretchin will lose the horde bonus or have it replaced with something else.

As always, it's hilarious how many people complain about things being "unorky" that have been in the fluff for decades.

Ah, yes they become separate units at deployment, and this only works from the start of the first battle round.

Shame though, it's a nice model, too bad he'll just stay on the shelf.

If our Dreads and Kanz are not core I will be livid because all save those Leviathan Dreads are Core for Space Marines, but they are GW's favored children.

Though getting 3+ to hit Killa Kanz will be nice, and could make them more viable.

Dreads core, but not Kans I reckon, based on nothing at all other than that Kans aren't orks
