LAST TIME ON THE GREAT GROT REBELLION: (THE GREAT GROT REBELLION!!! Part 1)http://www.librarium-online.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104693
If you haven’t look at part one view this link first before continuing.
Now continuing my madness we now move on into heavy tanks and vehicles lets begin with…
He’s very cute and was one of the first grot miniatures I created last year but the problem is he’s more of a mascot than a unit why pay 55 points for this cardboard armoured tank when I could field another unit of Ruff Riders. He has been recently redone for a mini-game at the UK Gamesday this year and now looks awesome and decorates the miniature case at GW Lincoln.
Technically they are vehicles in a way so lets get started. When it came to creating the Rough Riders everyone I knew screamed out Squig Riders I though that was to predictable so instead I mounted them in remote control cars but due to them breaking I had to remove the aerials from the epic wagons. Like the rest of my suicidal units they are excellent on the field and always give me at least double in their pts cost.
Now that the lightweights are out the way on to the heavyweights. When working on my vehicles I had to be sure not to make them look like looted vehicles so I had to redesign the look of each of the tanks
It was originally going to be aircraft carrier launching Grot bombs but the long 10 side armour was too risky but the mobile GAZA (NASA) platform proved an even bigger success. Especially the slogan on the side. (Too bad about the photo’s quality though)
The Battle Bruiser
The Leman Russ was by far the hardest to convert but luckily I had a pair of shortened tracks from my attempt at a Half Track Chimera a while back, plus with the added small mounted turrets I made for the side sponsons. It’s not a bad conversion.
This is the only tank that can’t be recognised by my opponent with one glance but after explaining that the grot manned turret at the top counts as the 2 separate heavy bolters and the metal grid windows at the side our the firing points for the Lasguns it makes sense besides what greenskin army does have its set of monster wheels.
And now for my star attraction…
The Little Grot
Ever since the beginning the thought of grots turning a Hellhound into a fast food restaurant had to be done. This truck conversion was clear in my mind I was just not sure what to name it names such as ‘KFC (Kentucky Fired Cadian)’ ‘Mek Donalds (which was already taken)’ were thought up but in the end I choose ‘Little Chef’ as it suited the army better. I just love this tank as it has so much character.
That’s all for my 1500pts army but I’m now currently working on my Human Slave Platoon and 2nd Basilisk which is an Air Support directing tank called ‘EASYDEATH’ for my 2000pt army and after that a few Digga allies.
Plus the comic so keep an eye out.

An impressive and creative army, but its feeble skills are no match for good old bolters and missiles. I look forward to wiping out over Christmas!

I'd been waiting to see this, yet more amazing work. Kudos to you my friend! I can't wait to see the next additions! A Grot Yarrick would be amazing, hehe.
KFC on the battefield...
i like your models, conversions and the painting but i think that a box of gobbo wolf riders with some cadian parts would make better rough riders, but thats just my opinion

Wow, well done.
I absolutely love these little pesky devils. You are using the rules for guardsmen aren't you? If you play with these guys it would be amazing.
