INTRO
My Grot Rebels have been my favourite army for nearly 10 years now. What made me choose guard over orks back in 2007 was 2 reasons; First was Grots were metal back then so an army would have been absurdly expensive and non-ork units were very limited and not very effective.
So my thought was “what's the 2nd weakest thing in 40k?” and thus the Grot Rebel Guard army was born.

Since then it has gone through 2 rebuilds and with the release of 8th the grots are looking to receive some tweaks to existing unit, as well as some brand new ones. I thought it best to start a brand new project log since my previous one is 4 years old.

KOMING SOON; DA AGE OF DETONATION!!!.
So what is in the works for the Grot Rebels in this new age.... well it's a lot of explosives I can tell you that...

MEGAGROTZ

Hardened veteran grots are very rare, as it should be. But like their former masters the Gretchin Elite gain access to the newest wargear in the Grot Revloushun's arsenal; Gretchin Mega Armour!
While not as durable as Ork Mega Armour these clunky suits provide the wearer with a powerful blasta and a personal teleporta.
These guys will be representing Tempestus Scions!




DOOM DIVERS
I'll be converting flight decks for my existing grot tanks for a pair of Basilisk proxies, each deck will have a Blood Bowl Goblin with a rocket pack preparing to launch himself at the enemy.



GOODBYE RAPIER LAZAS, HELLO BABY WYVERNS!

Sadly not everything has made the jump to 8th, my Rapier Laser Batteries were my main source of Anti-tank in 7th. However Forgeworld has changed them into single shot weapons so they'll need to be rebuilt to better represent this, maybe a large tesla cannon.
The old platforms will be re-purposed as Quad Launchers, the rough concept kind of looks like a baby Wyvern.



REMOTE TURRITZ
The lascannons from the Rapiers will be used for converting some Tarantula turrets, I have picture in my head of what I want to build, you'll have to wait and see what they look like.

DA BIG GRABBA/ROKKIT PLATFORM
This baby was converted in the last months of 7th however it's very low on the priority list at the moment.
Inspired by the 40k audiobook “The Klaw Of Mork” where Bad Moon Orks have have built a huge tractor cannon to pull down a comet to smash humies. I thought to myself “that would be the perfect Deathstrike proxy, must better than putting a NUKE ON THE FRONT LINES!”



So being the clever grot mek I was I decided to shrink it down and make a mobile version, designed to drag down a comet to crush the enemy with. This also suits the one shot nature as it will never have the time to lock on to and drag another comet down on to the enemy army.
You may have also noticed the anchors on the back of the tank, better to take precautions rather than suffer an unexpected flight lol. I'll be also converting an alternative Manticore turret armament for this tank for use in more competitive games.

So what do you think to the upcoming Grot Rebel units?

NOW LET DIZ NEW WAAAAGH BEGIN!

To lead the Gretchin Elite you need one bad ass Grot. So the doks and meks took some nameless beat up unconscious grot and rebuilt him making him stronger, faster, tougher. The result; leader of the Megagrotz; 'Robogrot' my Tempestus Prime proxy.

I hate you. And that is exclusively because you thought of this before I did....

I tip my hat to you, and simultaneously bow in samurai fashion. And yes only someone with at least one ork genome could pull that off.

WAT TA DO!?!
I'm facing a huge problem in regards to my former Rapier Laser Batteries. As mentioned in the first post even if Rapiers were worth taking I'd have to remodel it to represent it being a one shot weapon. No worries they'll make great Quad Mortars I thought...



However I seem unable to find a role for this model for different reasons....

  • Quad Mortar - Toughness 7 and with 6 wounds and I just don't get that sense of beefiness from this model.

  • Tarantula/Sabre Turret – Weapon doesn't pivot and their immobile.

  • Cyclops Demo Vehicles - Could load it up with a bomb each side and use them as Cyclops, but it's too big and when the blast is measured from the model that's no a good idea!

  • So I'm looking for suggestions on how to reuse one of my favourite models from the last edition?

    Also these guys are are nearly ready to teleport down and cause some havoc!

    This is some awesome stuff.

    As for your quad mortar dilemma, to be honest not even the official models seem like they are Toughness 7 with 6 wounds. I would have no problem facing those things as quad mortars.

    Do the quad mortar and just build a scenic base for it with cover or a force field to give it the beefiness.

    MARCH OF DA GRETCHIN ELITE!
    Here they are at last; my grot guard Tempestus Scions. I've been very busy recently so they took a bit longer than I'm used to, really pleased at how the masks and power packs came out.



    Which Megagrot do you like the most?

    Also decided to try the same image style GW uses, rather than photographing the squad as a whole, what do you think?
    As I make changes to the existing squads I may update their photos in this same style.

    MORE MEMBERZ FOR DA REVOLUTIONARY KOMMITEE
    Nachomon had almost completed work on two more of the Grot Revolutionary Kommitee members.
    Each Kommitee member will have a certain playstyle for example the fella on the right will be the leader of an all tank army. While the mek on the right will use a more chaotic play-style designed for use against beginners.

    GROT KOMMAND BRINGIN DA FIREPOWA!!!
    The first of my re-purposed squads, made from leftover grenade launcher models from my old veteran squads. Now a 4 man errr... grot team of Meltagunners for my Kommand Squad.
    Couldn't find a 4th meltagun barrel so decided to go XL, just ones of the benefits of them being greenskins is being able to create crazy weapons like that.

    I assume Gazza is going to be using the Techpriest Enginseer rules, or are you using Mechanicus Allies?
    Either way, awesome models all around!
