With the new Grot plastics coming soon (1-2 months!) the prospect of an all-Grot army seems very, very tempting. With Gretchin, Killa Kanz and Big Gunz we have three prospective choices for all-Grot armies, which is more than enough!
The problem is, however, there is no Grot HQ! Surely, somewhere out in the wastelands of the Ork empires, there exists bands of independant Grots, whether the servant-remnants of a slaughtered Ork tribe or a group of rebellious revolutionaries. Fluff-wise, precedence does exist; the Red Gobbo, for instance.
So this here be a call to all Grot-kind to raise a tiny little green fist in the air! GW should definately release one or two (or more!) Grot-only HQ choices so that we can truely field Grot armies. One of these HQs can/should be a "Grot Mek" who allows Killa Kanz to be taken as Troops, just like the Orky Big Mek. Another possibility, even, is some sort of powerful Ork Runtherd. Other options include shooty or stealthy Grots (for instance some sort of stealthy Grot who allows Grot swarms he's with to infiltrate/flank, etc). Perhaps Grot characters can even come with a special rule that negates the Runtherd necessity in Grot swarms.
Anyway, I'd just like to see all-Grot armies possible. And yes, I realize how much painting I'd have on my hands, and realize asking this amounts to masochism, but I just want lots o' Grots.

I'm not with you on the Grot Mek bit, Grots is cunnin' but not smart. I'm a big fan of the Runtherd boss though. that'd be great fun.
and imagine what a nightmare true LOS would be for your opponents XD
I don't know if there will ever be an option - I just can't see proppa orks allowing a grot to be any type of boss over anything. A grot rebellion, however, will just have to use statlines of normal HQ's. Though a mek stat isn't all that far from likely if I were to do that grot army.
There is a Grot HQ!!
Big Mek with Shokk Attack Gun. He is shooting grotz from that mean machine, seems like a pretty awsome grot HQ to me! haha

The SAG is as close as its going to get for the time being I think. Just imagine a rogue runtherd who fires other grots at the enemy, rather than them being snotties.

I doubt there will ever be grot HQ's in the actual Ork codex, but a chapter approved list may pop up in the future.
Its not to hard to model those choices though (I made a grot with a big electric backpack thing and count it as a big mek with KFF)
An HQ which allows grots to be stealthy is a great idea and makes sense.
I don't know, they may have something to that effect already in play. They made an all-gnoblar horde list in fantasy awhile back in a couple of the white dwarf magazines. I think it very likely that they would do something similar with grotz once people start buying more of them.
Lots of converting and nothing official, I'm sure, but it just might exist, which would be nice.
Victory is achieved through mettle.
Glory is acheived through metal.
i was think of doin the same thing but using count as rules for the HQ but other than that it will be all grots
Soooo... I've spent the last five days working up Codex: Rebel Grot Army, and its nearly complete It will be another day or two before I can post it, I still have some fluffy bits to write up, and then I have to make it forum-safe.
It is completely playable, and you can actually build it out of WH40k and WFB models
Here's a teaser list.
Really Big Gunz
I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.
