yeah,
I never invented the idea of a all Grot army! But I love the Idea so I've stolen it...
My army is a group of Grots worked out that they are better than Orks!
Grots build better machines. Grots pilot better! Grots loot better and grots Shoot better too!

They decided that they didn't need them stinking orks! Viva La Grots!

These are the GrotMekS...

Counts as Big Meks

At the start of this blog I was only aiming for a fun 500pts to take to a tournament in Watford..
From there it kept slowly going. At some point it became rokkit themed, rokkits on everything everywhere!

I can currently run 3250pts.

These are looking pretty cool panic. The idea for the big meks really good and the model does it justice!

Looking forward to seeing more of the little buggers.

yeah,
More Grots... on buggies! These are perfect in the grot army, I think it's fairly obvious why they have BS2!
I'm pretty happy with them. I think I'll lose the banner poles altogether. I think I'll have four grots per buggy.









Today I'm going to put together the squad of grots, and start painting something.
I think the colour scheme will be green grot skin, drab grey cloths, yellow or blue spot colour and a ash waste base.

When you call an intimate moment with your partner "the Assault Phase"

Is that followed by a pile-in move?

That brings a whole new meaning to the term "Hit and Run"

Can that be following a deep strike, or do you have to wait until the next round?

Could you perhaps sack the dred for a unit of grotbustas (converted grots into tankbustas)? Might be a fun conversion. Or you could slap some green-stuff backpacks onto some grots and paint em camo as kommandos (gives you a fun infiltrate option). Hope those ideas help. Also I love the models so far. If you ever get bored later, I'd love to see what might happen if you put a grot in mega armor. I've always imagined two grots, one standing on the shoulders of the other, wandering around in mega armor and it makes me laugh every time.

yeah,
Today I've been putting the killa kans together, the plan is to finnish off the modeling, so tommorrow and next week is all about painting.
So far I've magnatised the weapons, but I've only managed to put one Kan together.. these things are really difficult to put together, none of the bits fit together so i've been fileing bending cutting clipping a drilling and GS filling... Then To make things worse I dropped my dremmel and with my ninja quick reflexes caught it again... by the spinning drill bit end. so while my hand recovers, I thought I'd check out dakka and update this blog.

Yesterday I got the paint brushes out and made a start on the grot squad.
I primed/basecoated with Humbrol grass green spray.. which takes a little longer that GW spray to dry, but gives a awesome goblin greenish matt finnish.
flesh = humbrol grass green inked with Thraka Green.
clothing trousers etc adaptus battle gray*
clothing items = Iyanden yellow*
rags/wraps = skull white*
metal = boltgun metal*

* will all be washed with devlan mud.
Then all I have to do I paint the eyes and teeth... a couple more hours and these guys will be finnished...

some photo's




The spray give the guys a old school green base trim, although I'm thinking of giving them a desert base scheme...
So that's it for now...

yeah,
I Finished the Kans...
Tomorrow I'll finish the DeffDred and make a RuntHerder.
The Grots need a BigGrotRuntHerder, I'm thinking of taking a rouge trader era plastic Imperial Guard man, and cutting him down a little to shorten his legs and belly area pop a grot head on his shoulders and a runt herder pole in his hands... I'll find out tomorrow if it works?

I'll also be undercoating the everything. I'm debating which colour to paint the kans and buggies.
DarkGrey or GrassGreen?

yeah,
Short update... (a girl spilt red wine spilt on my laptop, the keyboard's not working right! I'm using onscreen keyboard, I'll clean this post up later) I brought my laptop to the Pub so that I could update this blog while I had a pint, and a friend got a bit excited and knocked a glass of red wine across the keyboard... I hope it dries out!

I'm at work now, so I can make this post a little more detailed...

I made the GrotHerder out a ImperialGuardsMan, He's got a plastic OrkRuntHerders grotpole and squig. The GrotProd gives him poisoned attacks so strength isn't that important... plus when the enemy hits the squad the runts are all T2!!? For the full army I'll need to make another 3 GrotHerders per squad.


Stomp Unit!
These guys took ages to build. I magnatised all the arms so they can be pulled off, To make it easy to track weapon destroyed results.

The only thing left to do is scratch build a GrotZooka...?

Every Thing sprayed Green... the metal models need a second coat for proper coverage.

With this the small 150ml spray can ran out. It cost £4.50 and saved alot of time.
Coverage on the plasic troops was amazing.

Panic..
