There is something amiss. I am seeing a lot of early information that is somehow suggesting something different may be on the horizon.

Take a look at this.....


First off, this was sent into us via an anonymous source that says they are working on some all Gretchin lists for Orks. Now these rumors are coming from different sources, so its quite surprising that we are getting such odd rumor bits, like CSM's in playtesting somewhere. Now this.... An all Grot list.

Perhaps this is a step towards what we will be seeing for an Allied supplement, or some other big change coming up. Now this is speculation on my part, but I am trying to see a bigger picture.

Until we know more, I will of course report on what we are sent and can find. So check out the following rumor bits.

Please remember that these are rumors, although they are still playtest rumors. These all could be tests for an Ork codex, as the above is simply my own observations on what I have been seeing. This set is from a different source than we have been hearing from over the last few days.

I dont think this is for a new Orks Codex, or a new Codex at all yet though. This is what is being worked on.

grot boss - a big grot almost an ork.
Gretchin Weirdling - grot psyker. Lvl1. Upgrade to lvl 2. Access to divination, gork, and mork lists
Killa kans in elite.
Gretchin - can take control collars no ork herder like in ork list. 5-20 unit. Cheaper than ork codex gretchin by a pt. Can take whirlybird or looted wagon as dt
Squig runts- sounds like 40k equivalent of squig hoppers
Whirlybird – looks like a Huey hit with ork hammer, bomb doors underneath to drop gretchin
Grot scootas - rocket propelled skateboarders? Squad of 5-10. Hvy bolter profile weapon.
Grot buggies - drive by assault 8 grot blastas
Grot rocket - single shot roket with large range and big blast.

Big Guns – control collar option again, the ones from ork codex, plus a flakk gun with skyfire

  1. Well April 1st is around the corner!
    Or maybe its a way to feed specific disinformation to various employee groups within the company to catch leaks?
    Though, I love the idea of an all Grot list, something I've considered if I were to pick up Orks.

    1. It does smack of April Fools. An all Grot list would be hilarious, and GW seems to be moving away from humor these days so I doubt it is real. But how great would it be...

    2. One can only Imagine the amount of Models needed for such a List

  2. I don't think that playtesting involving 6E codices is unusual; it's probably required to keep the overall performance of each faction on an even keel.

    The Grots are an odd one though, you're probably right there Natfka, it'll be held for the Ork codex down the road or used a bit sooner for a 40k suppliment.

  3. Could this be a Grot entry for the rumored "Allies" codex?

  4. It all sounds entertaining as hell though! Especially as I have over 100 of the little buggers...

  5. I would definitely nerd-rage a bit if grots get divination but my Tzeentch CSMs don't.

  6. Grot lists would be fun. A great excuse to bring out the red gobbo!
    Gork and Mork psychic lists is interesting, as is the apparent turn around letting codex orks have non-ork powers...

  7. There sure seems like alot of Ork rumors over last couple of months. Could this be a sign that they are after Eldar possibly? Perhaps the first 2014 40k release? Natfka can u do a compilation of all the ork rumors so far?

  8. Anyone have some crates of salt? I could one or two new grot units, but an entire army? I cry foul.

  9. All-Grot list? Won't be complete without Night Gretchin Fanatics :p

  10. Have you ever seen that amazing gretchin army?: http://leskouzes.blogspot.be/search/label/Da%20Gretchin%20Army

    So damn cool

  11. im thinking allies suppliment is the most obvious reason behind this, and several other rumours. if true i wonder if i would be able to use a 100% grot army or if they would only fit into your FOC in the allies section.... with the way grots are subserviant to orks and 'stealers to bugs it seems like they are matching the allies to the armies. personally i hope not and some allies can spread the love wide around (a "rogue trader" and retinue, similar to the GK inquisitor would certianly be top of my wishlist)

    1. Yeh, my guess would be something similar, in fact I suspect Sisters of Battle will be in there, and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a re-emergence of codex: assassins. Plus I think Kroot would very obviously slip in there too. Initially I was hoping for mini dexes but I suspect we'll just see Codex: Allies (or something similar) listing all the mercenary units. Of course this is all just speculation. :P

  12. I think it'd be fun to get an April Fools supplement. It'd be all grots, squats, & zoats.

  13. Something to reference is the Warhammer World event involving the Genestealer Cult.

  14. Because it's not like any other armies are in dire need of models and units but hey f--- em, make more Orks.

    1. If this was a post about SM I'd completely agree but Orks do need some love and I suspect Tau, Eldar and maybe even Nids may be out before a new Ork codex despite these rumours.

  15. I'd love a grot army, and I wouldn't have to worry too much about loosing with them being as they'd be so out classed by everything.

    1. Same, the one thing I'm most iking about this salty rumour is not needing a runtherder, which is the only real reason I don't play my grots, big irks in a little grot army, they just look....off
