Da Eleet Grot Mountin Duvishun!


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)!

An old (and bad) recycled photo.
First off, for those who don't know/remember, da eleet grot mountin duvishun got its name some ways back after my grot mob's valiant actions against the nids.  A brood lord & genestealers predictably outflanked, charged & wiped out my killa kan skwadrun. And to 'save' my flank I offered up a  grot speed bump while da rest of da boys fled.

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
                                                                                     Total: 135
(2) Lobbas                                                                      Total: 50
(1) Kannon                                                                     Total: 20

But da grots will have to miss out I suppose...

The Hive Mind was not please the day genestealers could not defeat grots. I wonder if the Broodlord had paint yet?

Are those the same kans who took down the Furioso?

Da Masta Cheef said...

Yes they are (the other three kans are still on the sprue).

I would imagine that the hive mind does not look favorably on that particular brood lord...

Well, bring the Grots sometime, I think we can always find you a game when you come to Newport at whatever points you want to try out.


Da Masta Cheef said...

lol thanks, da grots don't get out too much though. While a fully painted army, my Orks tend to fair quite poorly on the table top (with the exception above of course).

We're over-due for an Ork vs. Ork game. It's almost an annual thing for us now, isn't it?

Wow has it been that long already? Yeah I guess we are long overdue then!
