Here is a nice bit defining what a Grot Whirlybird is, and what it does. This comes to us from a different source than what we read earlier this morning. So definitely something is being worked on along these lines.


Check this out, and please remember that rumors are rumors, salt is always required. These are early rumors.

via an anonymous source (different source than this morning)
Grot Whirlybird -
*Looks like a old Vietname War Hellicopter, big bulged bubble cockpit/body, skinny tail boom.
*About twice as big as the ork DefKoptas. Concept is the doors of the main body open on the
bottom like an old bomber to drop the Grots on to the battlefield.
*Cannot carry Orks or Bulky/Very Bulky models.
*Can drop Grots at any point along path travelled in movement phase only if not Zooming.
*Placement like deepstrike, but scatter is reduced if hovering.

  5. Ear to ear grin for this unit, curious what foc slot this is, fast attack in guessing, would be amazing if it were a dedicated transport for grot mobs.

  6. I call bullshit! In the rules it says it cannot drop grots while zooming, then in the next point it says thier scatter is reduced if hovering. .. am I the only one who sees the contradiction here? Or have I missed something?

    1. Maybe it meant stationary, although a pinch of sodium chloride is always recommended so I'd say you're right in being mildly pessimistic.

  7. This seems like too many corroborating stories... there is like a small group of Grot Fanatics making this all up and sending it to poor Faeit.. lol.. or GW has finally sniffed too much glue and we are all going to be swept aside by the Green Tide...

    1. Really in the middle of March... Talk about premature. Although i know what you mean sounds way to good to be true, it would definitely lead to me starting an ork army.

    2. GW's sentiments exactly, which is why you can fully ecpect this to be true.

    3. The best way to execute an april fools gag is by doing it in March.
