Codex Rebel Grots

By BobK

This codex is designed to represent an army of rebel grots, as first mentioned in the 1st edition rulebook and later available as a warband in Gorkamorka. Such armies can be formed by grots rebelling, a large army of orks and gretchin being wiped out leaving only the survivors that hid or ran away to pick up the pieces, or due to grots killing the orks before they have finished forming. The army ought to operate in a manner similar to the imperial guard, only with a lot less discipline and a lot more numbers. Since this army is so unusual no guarantees can be made as to its success rate, but from the people I’ve met who want such an army this is less important than the idea of playing as the ultimate underdog army.

Big bosses can be represented with either da red grot, a banna wava or a converted grot with shiny gubbins.

Bomb squigs could be modelled as grots with bombs tied to them for personal amusement.

 

Allies: Treat as Orks when determining which allies may be taken.

Special Rules: Dey’s All Big Guns: All weapons listed as Assault (apart from grot blastas) become Heavy, and all weapons listed as Pistol become Assault 1.

Pile On!: Grots and squigs only use up half a transport slot each.

Run Fer It!: When a unit attempts to assault a squad of grots, the grots may choose to automatically fail a morale check and flee. The charging unit must still try to assault the grots with its remaining assault movement, wiping it out if it manages to catch them while their morale is broken.

Wargear:

‘Big’ Choppa: Close combat weapon that adds +2 Strength.

Looted Armour: Has a 4+ save.

Nasty Knife: Poisoned weapon that wounds on a 4+.

Shaman Stikk: Counts as a witchblade.
