Welcome to Librarium Online!
Maybe I am missing something, but I no longer find grotz all that useful in 4th edition. Correct me if I am wrong, but can't my opponent just choose to shoot the mob behind them if he passes a LD test. I mean certainly, he could fail, but not often, and I know I still get the 5+ save, but isn't it cheaper to just field a Mekboy with a KFF for the same save?
Anyway, if anyone has any ideas, I have a ton of grot mdels and would love to continue using them. I could really use their screening abilities as well because I play mostly Necrons and SM and am dying to get into CC with a large mob of Sluggaz. Generally they just get shot up before I get there.
if they pass the Ld test and shoot at the unit behind the Grotz, then you can take a 5+ inv save, Every save you make, you have to take off a gobbo.
so yes, the screen still works,...
but frankly I wouldn't use them since they are very poor troops indeed.. likely to disappear in a flash..
Divide & Conquer
Grots are so easy, the ememy is likely to ignore them completely, allowing them to claim an objective/table quater un harmed. Use them for fun, orks are a fun army, laugh when 1 Guardsman kills them all!!(the grots)
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
I love grots, even if they dont kill anything, they are a great screen or good for claiming objectives. They die really easily, but thats the fun in playing orks.
Nothing a Battle Cannon Couldnt fix
Yea grots are basiclly a joke. I have also claimed objectives and table quarters with them. Your oponent will get really pissed off when he loses thanks to the grots he ingnored all game. But if he does deside to get rid of them 1 guardsmen w/ a las pistal will take out the mob
What is dis signature nonsence?! dem stupid human zoggers are always trien to confuze us.
I love my grotz I have 20 in my 500 40 in my 100 60 in my 1500
<3 da weedy gitz.
cant hit anything in combat, can't hit anything when shooting, have rubbish guns anyway, weak, frail, about as courageuos as a small French girl being bitten by a dog the size of Jupiter....
Arghhh, thems shootin us! Grots die instead!
Arghhh, dats one 'ell of a climb... Use grots as a ladder!
Arghhh, they've set boobie all ova da place... Shove grots in to clear mines!
I don't have any grots yet, but in one battle I borrowed a freinds, and they led 2 units of Boyz safley through some terrain quickly, and mobbed a gaurdian unit, killing 3 with blastas!

"That is the sound of inevitability"
18 grotz have taken out an 8 scarb scarbswarm. Tell me they dont own?
grots are pretty nice, i mean honestly, if you enemy doesnt shot em, you got your grot blasta.. which could kill something...
less likely, but still possible. haha
all you need to do is brag after a grot killses something HAHA
