No, don't leave yet. Your about to witness the end of the blog! As usual, my blogs tend to drop down the pages as I keep ending my armies. But of some reason it feels like everything goes smoothly with these guys. What am I talking about? The TAU LOOTING GROTZ OF THE WAAAGH!GROTREBELS ofcourse :D
I will edit with pics and fluff as soon as I finnish one of my markerlight-counters :)

yes, its me again. And I have, NO COMMENTZ :0
So commen this, suckas (If your not reading my thread, then your kick ass >=) ) You just got hit by my kustom Markerlight counter slash basing test:

Im also going to hit you, my loyal readers, with a WIP on my grotz themself.

04-03-2007, 20:38
interesting.. are you going for an ork army here, or a tau army that happens to be run by grotz?
what mini's did you use for the grotz?

04-03-2007, 20:45
Count as Tau, their stats suits a grot that have got himself some drive.
Ive used gnoblars with some cut-and-reglued battlesuit bitz for weapons as I have yet to get me some pulserilfes (I´ll mitch and match the pulserifle grotz and the battlesuit-randomstuff grotz when I got more of these fellas)
I finnished the markerlight counter.

We still need some touching up to do, mr.brushy thinks the green, that is a kustom paintjob by the grotz to make it more stompy, needs alot more highlights. I think he's right. The forest will get wood-hugers to haunt me down, becuse I have found out that bark makes WONDERFULL rocks =) Here we got the Gorka battlesuits base inform of a rock getting stomped by this Stompy Gork-icon. The second one is a smaller rock having itself exploding open as Morka jumps down on it. Im trying to pose my battlesuits as if the grotz are bouncing around with them, having them in a jumping or running pose.

05-03-2007, 20:50
Hehe, nice use for the Gnoblars.

I also like your comical style of posting. :)

Mr.brushy thinks its nicer to read about his and my work when its a bit more interesting written :)
Im going into the big city of stockholm tomorrow and probably picking up a Hammerhead of a guy. Then I just need some more cash to get a few more colors and some bases then im ready to pull of ALOT of those little nose-gnawing fish'ead-wannabees! Im also going to organize a little list alá green-yellow-orange-red-paint-till-yer-dead. Till next update.

... ALOT, of non-ork greenskin warwolt had in his house. And I just did an quick look in the bit box. As I got 3 times the goblin-sprues from BfSP I should have uhm... 51 archer models o_O
And I don't recall myself having THIS little gnoblars. I, must, have, moore! This is going to be some seriously infantry heavy stuff belive me =)
Gorka (My battlesuit im painting currently) jumped up and down of joy when he saw this guy;
Its my old big-boss mounted on a squigg that led my X-nightgoblin army! No-one bounces around like this guy, no wonders Gorka looks up to him (Well, when hes not inside the the battlesuit) since he was ... well, since he was a spore! This shall be my Etheral character then :D
On saturday its Stockholm Frenzy, which is swedens own little "Games Day" sort of for beginneres. Now, they got a minitournament (Low pts double battles, did one last Frenzy and I had great fun! With my desert goblins acutally, which now is [X] marked and are now soon a part of my Tau Lootaz.) They got speed-painting challenges and convertsion corners. I aim to get to frenzy at this saturday and convert one HELL amount of stuff! I can bring a friend, so I will take my girlfriend over there and enjoy the whole day at Dragons Lair with just me and ... Games Workshops big fat bit box of DOOM. Hopefully I can bring home whatever I convert there. Say, shall I try to find enough parts to make a kustom battlesuit as my big fancy-pancy Commander model aaye :)

Deffskullz da Ork Stompaz

The Buzwikk Loota-tribe, settled on the remains of the Imperial world Salamandtrimal VI
Had almost covered the whole blasted surface of the city-planet with their Kamps and Settlements and where ready to move on and catch up with Waaagh!Wurwult that did not care about those who chosed to stay at Salamandtrimal. These Orks remaining, named the planet “Da Stompy Pozt” as it was their outpost more or less as the rest of the Buzwikk tribe headed on and named new worlds as under control of the Loota-klan. At Salamandtrimal, or Da Stompy Pozt, the Orks there spend most of their time “cleaning up” from the war.

Being from the Loota-klan it was in their nature to loot. Every Ork on the planet spent almost their whole waked time searching for lootabe equipment. Even smaller Waaagh!s was gathered to raid the remains of the Imperial Guard that had fought the Orks into last man. Now, years later since the overtaking of the planet a lot of equipment have been harder and harder to find fresh and stealing and looting each other was nowadays a everyday problem for anyone with more and rarer equipment than anyone else.

The Grot servant of every bigger Ork was often sent away to get “Gubbinz” for their master and trough this behaviour there is now dozens of Grots under the serving of a boss that have mastered the art of stealing as far as their primitive and childish brains could push it. But the live for these poor critters was extremely harsh as they had to work hard for their masters, either putting their life at risk in the neighbourhood Kamps sneaking around and taking as much as they can carry, in the Workshops helping the Meks making kustom jobs on the looted equipment or in the Boar Kitchen making stewes, Mushroom soups or brew firewater for their Ork masters.

Many lives were taken when they worked into their graves. The Orks could care less, and the surviving Grots were more or less happy with their situation. If they worked hard they would be less kicked, and as there had been very little war (in larger scale, there is always war between the Kamps even tough the Orks just see this as another everyday event.) lately they where almost completely removed from the using as shields.

If you’re not leading a Waaagh! Where the mere presence of all Orks proves you’re the stompiest and mean Ork around, using a Gretchin as a shield is a sign of weakness and these Orks are often called “Pancies”. Trough this the Grots started to live longer, atleast some did now when they weren’t shot at whenever a Ork felt to go have a war with any other race than a green on nearby.

This, however, did not last long as a Tau Firewariors sept had arrived at Salamandtrimal to remove any hostile lifeforms and colonize it in the name of the Greater Good. The Orks responded immediately and swiftly, their sheer number overwhelmed the Firewariors and every Ork eager to fight something else than other Orks fought strongly and fiercely and totally obliterated the septs Hunter Cadres as every single Kamp on Da Stompy Pozt united.

The alliance did not last longer than a week however; as the war was over in a grot-fart the Orks had gone back to stealing and looting. Now they had fresh Tau weaponry to use, and new possibilities opened up for the Big Meks.

During this short period of war it had died more grots than during the past six years, and one Grot decided not to let this happen ever again. His name was Scarfezta’ and he alone stood up against his Ork master trough a miracle, and a dangerous fungus-drug called Hex-blob it has been rumoured. He lead a horde of grots, outnumbering the Orks in the kamp almost a hundred versus one, all equipped with ethier sharp stuff found in their homes or stolen ork shootas. But what had given Scarfezta’ his victory was how he and a few other had figured out how to drive the Tau Battlesuits that had been “kustomized” for greenskins by the mek. Trough this mistake Big Mek Znubwik Gargantbook had lost his Kamp to these lowlives.

After a few months the Grotz had managed to occupy enough kamps to arm their army with a horrifying number of looted weaponry. To scarfeza’s surprise and joy he had found a just reacently finished Ork Krooza spaceship buildt as combination of a gargant and a destroyed Tau Manta. In a matter of days after the discovery Scarfezta’ leaved Da Stompy Post to find a place to make his base.

06-03-2007, 20:25

A couple of close-ups. Ive added ALOT of holes, as I think something as old as this should have some bullet-holes. So I took a electric dremmel and attacked it alot. On one Engine however I didn't watch out and made a hole that looked REALLY wierd, so I fixed it with some plasticard. Ive also added two armored plates ontop of each Engine to make it a little more Orky. Under it ive got another big hole that is the "killing blow!" visible when its killed. Under this honey ive got 3 warbike-trakks, and the reason it still count as flying is because those grotz thinks it really goes THAT fast!

And besides, Mr.Brushy have yet to feast on that plastics misserable souls to create some pure madness. I really hope I can get this to 2250pts, cuz then I can go and game at a GT in sweden when they come (If everything keeps happening as it does now, well have a GT in no time. We already have our own version of both Golden Daemon and Games Day. Fang paintingcompetition and Stockholm Frenzy. Both are getting bigger and a manager on GW told me we might get some REALLY juicy stuff in sweden. So I better get this stuff gonig :D)

06-03-2007, 21:27
TRACKS! That was the money shot for me, seeing the nice orky worky-drivey bitz on the bottom. I also like the slanted mount of the gun, and am curious how the wrapping on the barrel will turn out. Masking tape?

OH MY GAUWD, The result of this is a shock to even me... CRAP. Black ink and mr.brushy LOVES eachother! MWAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAAHAHH! I also added some more gnoblars, including one in each drone happily shooting those Rokkitz ^^

07-03-2007, 16:50

07-03-2007, 19:43

Some more work, im in no way happy with how the red turned out... and I have no idea of how to fix it. Might look better after I highlight it tough, Mr.brushy said... I guess I could town done the red by adding alot of oil and metall-scratches to it. I might have it as the "old" paint by the original owners, the Orks. And when the gnoblars stole it the put a blue paintjob over it ^^

07-03-2007, 19:48

I'm still in shock that you did that to a brand new model rather than getting a piece of crap off of eBay or someone else.


However, regardless, it's looking rather cool.:D

07-03-2007, 20:12

SMACK, and I just did a little more work on it... I must say Im starting to like how this is turning out. I´ll add alot of highlighting and some more freehand to this before its in anyway done, but thus far the hull looks pretty damn awesome.

Starlight: Erh... I don't think I got you. I did get a crap model of "eBay" (Actually from a guy on a swedish Rougetrader forum, but its still secondhand) that I fixed and messed up ;)

Starlight: Yeah, I too was a bit suprised to hear it to be called wood-tank. I might add a few more lines before re-messing this (Smart-mess, im starting to learn how to do this!

Ive added some dirt to the turret, and also 4 RED-buttons of doom. So now we have the grotz being able to:
Go forward
Go backward

If you want to go left or right, ethier grot on a the side-engine placed in the direction you want to go at simply; Jumps. Thats right! These mad mens have NO clue whatsoever how to turn propertly so they "stomp" this monstrosity in the right direction! MWAHAHAH!
