Default Something for the Ork Players...

Found some information regarding the apparently impending release of plastic gretchin

Rumor:

Quote:
at games day i talked to one of the sculptors(dunno the name, he was nearest the white dwarf stand) who i asked about plastic grots, he gave a fluffy answer about various projects blah blah, so i pressed him, and he looked around furtively, and said, "i think it'll be ok, but they'll be out early next year". i know everyone is excited about the nobs, but plastic grots are far more neccesary.

And pics, from philbrad2, again on Warseer:






I actually hope this one turns out to be true; I've found scratchbuilding Ork vehicles to be strangely therapeutic, and Gretchin make excellent cannon fod...er....I mean crewmen.

Those sculpts look a great deal like the old metal models, though.


Oh well, it's not like I use Grots for anything but vehicle decoration anyway....


SSpeaking of which... we don't NEED plastic Grots.

Not when the Ogre Kingdoms Gnoblars fit the role so very, very well.

Yeah the plastic grots look just like the old metal ones. That sucks I was hoping for some new sculps but it just looks like they cast the metal ones in plastic. Oh well not like I use grots for anything but decoration and the fantasy gobbos work great for that.

I love gretchin so and hate metal more. I have honestly had zero good experiences with metal models. Now I can have ranks of advancing cannon fodder without having to super glue my hands together!

they look alright, but yeah, they look like the metal ones. they could come up with some better things to spend their sculpting money on i think.

I'm glad they look like the metal ones, they had character (something SERIOUSLY lacking from modern GW sculpts) so I'm glad they kept to that, you others can keep your boring rubbish
