It seems I forgot to take photos of my meager painted offerings from last week. So uh yeah...FAIL on my part. Just think, you get to look forward to that later in the week (guess I need to improve that sales pitch...)!
However the Newport TN crew are starting up an escalation league & while its too far away for me to take part in it, I've been perusing & pondering their starting 250 point list ideas. The few I've seen are more or less 'dickish' lists posted for hilarity & to get a rise out of their opponents. Flyers & allies tend to be the main 'WTF?' subjects to the comments that follow. The only requirement (aside from a preference for painted minis) is 1 troops choice. That's it. And it got me to thinking that I could actually field my Eleet Grot Mountin Duvishun as a grot army (at least until they scaled up to 500 points)!

The story that unfolded was that the: (to be named) Eleet Grot Mountin Duvishun repelled out of the bombed out manufactorum, gunz blazing (and as usual, hitting nothing) and charged the astonished genestealer brood! The brood lord taking wounds for its team, eventually fell to perils of the warp, and despite horrific casualties (from both the stealers & the Slaver's squig) three FULL turns later, a hormagaunt brood was redirected to save the last stealer from giving up a kill point!
It was awesome. I vaguely recall my warboss, Da Masta Cheef doing something glorious on the other flank but who cares, this post is about grots. So were I to field a 250 point grot army, I would use the following:
Da Eleet Grot Mount’n Divishun (11+ Slaver) Total: 43
Kan Skwadrun (3) 105
(1) Big Shoota, (1) Grotzooka, (1) Skorcha 30
(2) Lobbas Total: 50
(1) Kannon Total: 20
But da grots will have to miss out I suppose...
