Hello,

I’ve been a long time voyeur on these forums but now have organised myself to share my Kunnin’ progress with a Grot only army. Although not an original idea, and many designs have been liberally ‘inspired’ by the fantastic work here and elsewhere, I have thoroughly enjoyed the project so far.

The goal is to build an army exclusively from Grot based units; Kanz, Gunz, Grot Tanks and of course grots. Wherever possible I’ll keep to these units, but in the future I’ll potentially expand into proxying other units.

The big challenge will be with the HQ choices and making suitable Grot replacements.

And a pic so far, still a few tanks to finish, Grots to base and obviously paint to be ready for 1000 points.

Everything is awesome, but I am especially jealous of the grot tanks. Great job with each one. I like how they are all tall. As a former tanker, I want mine to be low profile, but the way of grot tanks is to be tall. If I have a suggestion it is to make one the kommand tank, with a grot kommanda. I assume it is the front left tank with the two guns. Even if you pop the hatch just a little and have him peek out, although I dream to have one grot TK (tank kommanda) using his sword to urge the lads forward.

Thanks Derry!

 

The Army was pretty much finished last week, not painted but compiled.

 

Here is the first painted Grot Tank

I took the Grots to a local 40K 1000pt tourney and well got pretty much demolished, One 0-0 draw, a tabelling and a loss to Orks, which had multiple rules errors on both sides, but the Grots are unwavering in the face of defeat!

 

The list was something like:

 

Big Mek with KFF

3 X 13 Grots

4 Rocket Grot Tanks

4 KMB Grot Tanks

3 Kans

2 Smasha Gunz

2 Bubblechuckas

Nice job on the tanks, love the way you've done the tracks on them - do you plan on doing a mega-tank for them?

Strange you should say that as yes, I've just started the Mega Tank.

 

The Kanz and, because of some rules misunderstanding, Mek Gunz, didn't really make back their points, so I decided to have a go at a Grot Mega Tank. 5 turrets, two twin-linked, for under 150 points should make a bit of a difference, especially if I load them out with Grotzookas!Anyway, the Kans didn't really make back their points, and due to some rules mistakes on my behalf, didn't realise that the Mek Gunz have in effect 360 degree LOS so I decided that, with 3 turrets and two twin linked turrets (Probably Grotzookas on each?) a Grot Mega tank would be a better use of the points.

Welcome to the rebellion, grot!

You have done some very nice work here. I am really liking that tread design for your megatank. Simplicity itself and yet not so obvious that I coulda thought of it.  :biggrin  That one goes in da mek's notebook.

 

:cheers
