If all the other creations and homebrews can have a thread, so can these.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Scraplootas
someone should do some writefaggory for Threegrot.
>>20265268I thought there was some.
Indeed.I'd do so myself but I suck at doing most things.
>>20265283then I haven't read it.got a pastebin link? since I don't see one on that wiki page.
>>20265288Who is that a drawing of?
Not a character.It's one of the 'Slingers' in the arms.
>>20265338"Slingers"? The wiki says "swingees", is that right?Also, learn to reply properly
>>20265364Swinges, Slinger. It's all good.
>>20265301I might be wrong.
On the writefaggotry note, did we get any origin of Fizzgutz?
>>20265434Well... yeah.He was a weirdboy *Cant remember is he was a wannabe weirdboy or not* while they looted Boris he went into a closet and found a techpriest cloak/dress, with a book.He then went to become a messenger of Gork and Mork disciplining bitches with 'Da Buk'
Heya, I could do some writing on threegrot, but I'm not sure how. He seems like a very flat character and there isn't much to work with. Minor psionic abilities, suspicious.... but what are his motivations? What are his goals? These are questions I need to answer.
>>20265464Oh wait, my bad. Seems like that was just an idea someone tossed out while we made him.Disregard ''Weirdboy''>>20265464
>>20265473They wanted to be more than just the average grot, and became Threegrot.So i'd reckon he'd want to become a higher up in the Grotocracy if he/they knew about it.Not sure though.
All the Scraplootas are madboyz.
OP delete the other thread already..
>>20265508I feel like Threegrot would want to become a proppa ork rather than a tall/important grot. Ideas for adding depth.>Through their psionic connection, the three grots have now actually become a singularity. They are Threegrot now and any one of the three of them is little more than absolutely nothing. They have become one entity. >They, being kinda chaotic, actually love to cause fights in camp but due to being essentially just three grots, are unable to fight in proppa WAAAGH >idfk I'm running out of ideas again
>>20265531I'd tell you to read the codex, but this is a Scraplootas thread, so none of it would really apply.
>>20265550Actually, that's surprsingly accurate.
Im bored out of my skull.gonna gtfo for a while
>>20265434I thought he got weird in the head (not in the psych sense though) after sleeping in Boris too often and absorbing some of that chaos energy from it.
dead tonight.>>20265406I haven't been through all the Scraploota threads yet, so there might be some uncollected stories somewhere.
>>20265464He thought he was a weirdboy after he saw three grot walking along and fall over so he thought he turned him from an ork into three grots.Then he found da buk and his robe and he went smacking grots with itThen the two parts were diverged and the whole "normal boy who thinks he is a weirdboy" bit sort of fell by the wayside
>>20265550The majority of the scraplootas are mad boyz by normal ork standardsTo them it is just jeeneyus
>>20269127It's mostly dead because no one has much to constructively add, unfortunately, we've had a lot of discussion done already.Can we make it an unwritten rule that, unless someone has Scraplootas related content to share, we limit starting up threads to Wednesdays only? This would help keep the Scraplootas fresh and interesting.
>>20269660Well I just have nothing new to add because my ideas have been mentioned last time and I suck at write fu
>>20269660I guess...right now my brain is too busy trying to think how they'd interact with the other /tg/ homebrew factions.
>>20269660Agreed with this guy.Wednesdays.
>>20265550So Scraplootas are a tribe of Freeboter Madboyz. That is fucking great.
Well since we're all here, we could discuss their surrounding sector, since we know the Scraplootas don't really have a home planet. I keep imagining a 40K equivalent to the Carribbean, filled with nothing but Freebooterz, Space Pirates, Rogue Traders, and people taking advantage of the ensuing mayhem caused by this. Chaos wants to Chaosify it up as they always do, at least one Eldar craftworld is using all this nonsense to hide in, DEldar are there to rape and pillage, Tau are there to prove how the Greater Good can pacify the region, and IoM are there to gain control of the region again. Insert random Necron tomb world and a few Nids showing up here and there and blammo, you got yourself a stew.
>>20271482while on the subject of surroundings, do the Scraplootas even have access to warp jumping?I always just imagine them putzing along in the same area, slowly making their way from planet to planet unless that farseer hooks them up with speedy transport.
>>20271562That's definitely something worth knowing. And while that scenario makes sense, it's equally fun to imagine them just -VOIP-ing above a planet and then dropping a Boris on the populace below.
>>20271642they'd probably have to fight warp horrors if they ever tried making a jump on their own since their shields flicker.All the grots would probably just start screaming at the horrors as if screaming at the walls when the walls start screaming at them was practice for it.Or some dumb thing like that.
>>20271562They have a krooza and I guess the ball of weird squigs would amplify the WAAAGH field that the limited number of boyz could put out so that they are safe as orks ever get in the warp
>>20271760>>20271803I'm now imagining them running a giant cable from Boris' reactor to the ship's engines and using the WAAAGH ball as an astropath
>>20271833well then they're just guaranteed to fight warp horrors then if the WAAAGH is guiding them.
>>20269660Cool, that actually makes drawing things a lot less stressful. I can just dump all the stuff I finish then. :D
>>20271904>>20271833Always makes for a good time while on the krooza if they can krump dem spiky demon gitsI do picture the cable being attached by shoving it in one of the squigs gob and Boris yelling at the daemon to take him to da fightin!
I had an idea about the stormboy and biker nobs againThey both keep trying to find the best fuel for their respective vehicles, the stormboy keeps trying to make better fuel ( often just more explosive ) while the biker keeps trying to make a better nitro fuel from squig juice since he thinks that he can just fill his tank with itWhile they compete they are about as good friends as orks can really be since they both share the same passion of bein da fastest ork everThe stormboy uses all sorts of random bits in his fuel like Prometheum, eldar gubbinz and chaos bits to go into his mixes where the biker keeps to more orky things like squig oils and fungus beer. Realistically neither work that well but they are loud and explosive so they think they are greatThe stormboy doesn't go anywhere without his rokkit pack and the biker has traps set up guarding his bike whenever he is more than a few steps away from it and locked away behind a giant bulkhead door that he got control of by bribing Zizzbitz to make a remote for.
>>20271918Are you the guy working on Snekkit?
>>20272012Yeah, the day I said I was I just couldnt get it right and gave up, I'm going to start again tonight....Are you the guy that said, "Yay" last thread?
>>20272154Might've been me.Cant remember.Dont know if I had taken my name off to go post in another thread or not.Im going to fuck off and go to bed now.It's 9 AM.MoreLinesNeededBetween Words and sentences.Dickbutt
>>20272154That was >>20272263I was also happy, though. Really, any drawfaggotry of any of the characters brought to the table is coolbeans, though.
>>20272376We'ze gots at go wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiider
So assuming someone wanted to represent the ScrapLootas on the tabletop without using any homebrew rules:HQ:Warboss ('Urtylug)Big Mek (Zizzbitz) with Blue as an Oiler Grot(If you're using dual FOC) WierdBoy (ThreeGrot) leading a grot squad.Troops:Grots, and only grots. Oh Gork and/or Mork so many grots. Fizzguts (and maybe Derknitt) as grotherders, the rest being gretchen bureaucrats.Elites: Kommandos. Model Rockeata and Snekkitt in there somewhere. Derknitt too, if he's not with Fizzguts and the grots.(Maybe) A small Nobz mob. ('Urtylug's Swashkrumpaz)Fast Attack:Small warbikers mob. (Boris' Rear Guard)A couple of Deffkoptas (Boris' Air Support)(Maybe) A Small Stormboyz mob (I think they've only been mentioned once or twice, though)Heavy Support:None. Unless there's some Imperial Armour rules that could reasonably represent Boris.Sound good?
Ya. IS GOOD!
>>20274723Sounds damn good to me. Good enough to be the current official Scraplootas loadout. I'm glad to see they're finally getting crunched out a bit.>(Maybe) A small Nobz mob. ('Urtylug's Swashkrumpaz)I'd make this a yes and take out the maybe. Just make them all have grappling hooks and pirate hats>(Maybe) A Small Stormboyz mob (I think they've only been mentioned once or twice, though)I think they've been mentioned enough to be more than a maybe as well.I really just want to see a massive grot rush happen somewhere in the name of the Scraplootas.
so we know Threegrot came to be since he was sick of being kicked around, but is he able to fool the Grotocracy like he does with the Orks?What's stopping other weird grots from making a fourgrot, or even a fivegrot? No trench coat long enough?
>>20276948Anyone taller or shorter are clearly not weirdboyz.It would be interesting if Threegrot was a different grot every single time.Or maybe Threegrot is the mysterious head of the Grotocracy?
>>20274723>Heavy supportDon't forget the looted leman russ and Boris
>>20274723grots you say?>>pic related80 of the mofos!
>>20276948I think the Grotocracy doesn't care about outsider grots. If a grot lives outside of Boris, then they don't much matter. I doubt Threegrot would be allowed into the grot-only parts of Boris after his dropping out of the Grotocracy>>20276988>Or maybe Threegrot is the mysterious head of the Grotocracy?The 'Ead Kounsel changes almost daily due to all the uprisings and coups. Even the dakkists and the choppists routinely change leaders as different grots argue over what's the best way to be the shootiest or the choppiest>>20277040Getting there, but still not enough grots. We want opposing armies to be as confused as they are scared by the sheer number of grots we have.
So, about Boris.Where can we find rules for an Imperator Class Titan or something similar? How could you reasonably build the thing without either using scale compression or just building the two legs on a base?>>20277139The maximum number of grots you can take in one army is 180. (full sized squads filling all troops slots)That doubles to 360 once you unlock the second FOC at 2000 points.So there's a baseline.
>>20277206Boris might be better to play in Epic Armageddon, though.
rolled 37941 = 37941>>20277221Well, I guess it's a greater challenge to find people who play epic, than making things work in regular 40.
>>20277193Nah, you're good. I was just being melodramatic.>Where can we find rules for an Imperator Class Titan or something similar? Could we use the rules for a similarly sized Gargant and just say Boris counts as one? I imagine that, given his modifications, he's as close to a Gargant as he is to a Chaos Titan
>>20277193Bro, there are grots in at least the heavy support slot. Big Gunz or whatever.This is not even counting all the ammo grots and grot riggers you can take that don't technically count.
>>20277257That could also work.Physically scaling down Boris' model to stompa-size doesn't seem right though, but I guess if it's between that and actually building a three-foot-tall orky plastic monstrosity...>>20277295This is true.
This idea hit me in the car.-- --- -------- --- -------- --- ------http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyz_2DEah4oIn 972.M40 a crack militia unit was sent to prison by the Grotocracyfor a crime they didn't commit. These grots promptly escaped from a maximum security prison tothe Titanopolis underground. Today,still wanted by theGrotocracy, they survive as grots of fortune.If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can findthem - maybe you can hire: The G-Team.-- --- -------- --- -------- --- ------Your now imagining Grots themed to the A-Team helping out defenseless grots against the 'mafia' like Grotocracy
>>20277321>grots>defenselessI don't think you understand that just about every grot in the Grotocracy is as powerhungry as the last. They're closer to the DnD Dark Elf house structure than they are to a mafia.

>>20277321I believe the previous A-Team idea was shot down because it was too similar to how the Scraplootas are already? I could be wrong though.
>>20277623That and we're trying to avoid making the Scraplootas a collection of pop culture references, with Derknitt being about as close as we're willing to get. Shit, Snekkit got entirely reworked for being too close to Deffwotch. Now, I don't think a little one-off story of a band of grotmercs kicking it A-Team style inside Boris would be rejected, but having them be "main characters" in the vein of Threegrot or Blue is something that wasn't too well-received last time.
>>20277583Now, if you could make terrain to represent the insides of Boris, I think that would be perfect.I can't say I'm well-versed in Boris affairs, but the titan does most of the fighting, right? Meaning external fights are mostly the bikes and 'koptas.Having swarms of grots repelling boarders/invaders would be a fun match.
>>20277720Grots are everywhere. They make up the majority of the attack force, distracting everyone with their sheer numbers as the Kommandos and Stormboyz do more surgical strikes, all the while Boris is doing his thing with his band of kopta and bike guardsmen.But yes, a grot/swashkrumpa vs invaders match would be fucking awesome. Bonus points if manage to make them fighting in the reactor, complete with a model of the WAAAGHball mass of glowing squigs.
>>20277583so, the bitz boz has gifted 79 extra grots for 179 total :)>Pic Related it's my "Stormboyz"; snots kicked across the battlefield by Zagstrukk :D
>>20277828>"Stormgrotz">Not gifted fireworks jetpacks, instead they get KICKED across the battlefield in leaps by a bigger ork.>The ork nob kicks these grots like field goals, several dozen in a row.That's... hilarious.
>>20278787The only problem is that the nob needs to find his way next to them before they can "fly" again. That said, it's a wonderful idea that fits with what the Scraplootas would do perfectly. Didn't Boris even chuck grots at Chaos Marines in the story of his ascension to Titandom?And here's the pic you were looking for.
>>20278787as it's Zagstrukk, they always deep strike; thrown out of a drop ship into enemy units (deep strike + assault); they're "attacks" are more like impact hits :D
>>20277321>>20277357You know, I'm not much of one for quests, but a quest about a young, ambitious grot trying to climb his way up to the top of the Grotocracy has potential, to say the least.
What's the word on the Scraploota's Painboss? I've never heard any ideas for him.
>>20279713I don't think anyone bothered to do much with him. We've got a shitload of named characters as it is.
>>20279713I've no idea what a painboss is, but let's assume that the Scraploota painboss gets replaced quite often.
>>20279894>I've no idea what a painboss isBoss of the painboyz. Painboyz are the closest orks get to a doctor. They handle all the limb replacements and head transplants.
>>20279907Ah, alright then. the Scraploota Painboss gets killed and replaced in an endless cycle then.
>>20280020We already have that going on with the 'Ead Kounsel. I say he just doesn't matter so much. Due to their surprise tactics, most orks don't get all that beat up save the ones that die wholesale and those that do just get some right flash bionics made by everyone's favorite grot slapped onto them by the painboss. The poor bastard is probably bored out of his mind and takes to experimenting on grots and mucking about with those WAAAsquigs whenever Derknitt or Fizzgutz aren't looking.
>>20280137>mucking about with those WAAAsquigsI can see the painboss going full weirdboy mad scientist (or as close as an Ork can get) like, making new types of critters out of the exploded heads of other weird ones.Ultimately he'll just be mucking about in a way that pisses off the demon core in hilarious ways.
>>20280226GENTLEBOYZ, BEHOLD, I HAVE GRAFTED THIS SQUIG TO A WEIRDGROT>...uhhh, why'z you did that, boss?BECAUSE I CAN. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA>....kill....me....
>>20280272Well now we know where those new squiggotaurs from that leak came from.

>>20280719I wanna call him Rukksakk for some reason, but we can do better.
one of the guys who came up with the idea of threegrot originally. I agree he comes across as a bit flat, aside from the fact that they diddn't just want to be just another grot and he's got psychic powers that's about it they need some more personality; what do they like doing when they're not fighting or muckin' about, any other unique quirks like urtylugs mugs or rockeata and his similarity to his name.(I think theres like one paragraph of threegrot writefaggotry with them fighting amongst themselves or something like that)
The old and mind-addled old ork picks up the shrieking vox reciever to his right, and after listening intently for a moment replies.>"YES BLUE, MINE FOR BRAINS, AAHAHAHAHA""'Ey, 'oo woz dat on da vox?">"UH, NOONE. HEY LETS PAINT YOUR GUBBINS!""But Oi loike ma gubbins yellah"The mad dok extends his metal claw and injects a simmering acid into the grot's neck.>"IT BEGINS!"
>>20280743Doktah WeirdFarnswaaaghGit Stitcha <my personal favoriteFrank
>>20280747There is. I imagine they have some kind of hideaway away from both the grotocracy and the other orks where they can discuss things amongst themselves, roll lots for who gets to be the head that day, that sort of thing. I've been trying to put some thought to them, but I keep coming up flat. They seem to act more as a reminder of just how goofy the Scraplootas are than any sort of fleshed out character at the moment. And there's not necessarily anything wrong with that.
>>20280753>old twice, I am an idiot.
>>20280784We're trying not to go overboard on references, though. I like Gitstitcha, though. Or Squigsplitta, given his favorite pastime.
>"GENTLEGROTS, BE'OLD: OI 'AS LOST WEIGHT!"Lookin' flash dere, dok">"All runty fats outta my body...MANUALLY!"The Mad Dok steps out from behind his bench to reveal that he has cut off his legs and replaced them with squig legs.>"Oi need ta lose twenty more pounds or oi'll nevah be pretty!" He says as he begins sawing into his left arm with his mek-claw.
>>20280792Threegrot in charge of training the other wierdgrots/boys in the tribe a since he's clearly the most orky and/or experienced. (with hilarious results)I do really like the idea that all three of them a) all want to 'stand on the top' and b) hate each other and only stay together for fear of krumpings so there's this bizarre mixture of contempt, rivalry and mutual respect all at the same time.Whoever gets to stand on top depends on who gets there first when they're getting ready in the morning (or whenever it is they get up)
Or Squig-stitcha. Though I'm thinkin all the gits but the Warboss refer to him as Dok or Dok Squig-stitcha as a mark of respect and a deterrent to winding up on his operating table.
Cmon, I thought we agreed on not adding any more references into the Lootas?
I want to have him just referred to as Da Dokta. He can be a mixture of Weird, Farnsworth, Who, House, and the Medic. Depending which head he's currently using.I don't think he'd be experimenting on Blue so much as doing experiments to make another Blue. He is convinced that Blue is actually a blue grot, and is trying to replicate her blue-ness, much to the misfortune of several grots.>>20280792For some reason I want Threegrot to be a phenomenon more than an actual character. He always exists, no matter what happens to him, because he gets reformed every time he's destroyed from another three weirdgrots.
>>20280915Aww but Dr. Weird would make such a great ork.
>>20280915We're getting away from that, slowly and thankfully. Just like we did with Snekkit and Derknitt.I was the one who posted >>20280272, but that was mainly supposed to be a joke.Besides, I like the idea of a bored Dok who spends most of his days trading with Blue or antagonizing the daemon core with a little grot experimentation mixed in because there's rarely anything better to do anymore. I bet he gets awfully excited (and overeager, getting carried away) whenever someone does actually need surgery.>>20280929>He is convinced that Blue is actually a blue grot, and is trying to replicate her blue-ness, much to the misfortune of several grots.This, I like. It's straying away from the references, too.
Fun fact: Squig-Stitcha's head is totally autonomous after a successful experiment to make sure that if he ever gets krumped, he can still escape. Upon being severed from his body, two squig legs shoot out from the base of his neck and carry the head to safety. Why squig legs? BECAUSE EVERYTHING NEEDS SQUIG LEGS!
I have only one question: why hasn't Warboss Urtylug "Titanloota" Dursnik looted another Titan? Not another emporer of course, but maybe a warhound or two. Or he could use a knight titan as an orkish dreadnought varient.
>>20281070because the one he already looted was the only one in the area/quadrant/sector/whateverthefuckit'scalledin40k.
>>20281070Maybe because he hasnt found any yet?It's not every day you see an exposed force of a few hundred men at the least *As it's a fairly decent target for them* with a titan.They only managed to snag Boris because rape.When in doubt.>Rape.
I'd like Dok to constantly have a new "sure fire way" to krump the humies, each time he appears.>"Dis wun iz even more perfikker dan da last wun, wot woz also perfik! It can't fail!
>>20281047Yes! All of my fucking yes! And maybe a laser eye or something similar so his squighead isn't defenseless.>>202810701. He's too busy priding himself on his Taktikal Genyuss regarding Boris to even think about what he could do with 2 Borises2. Boris probably is awfully angry at anything he thinks is copying him, blasting any and all titans into scrap whenever the opportunity presents itself.3. They're a hit and run ambush group that was lucky enough to stumble across one titan. I doubt they have the firepower to take on an actual army that's large enough to have a titan.4. It's not everyday that you just find a titan.
Noone is entirely sure when Dok Squigstitcha joined up with the Scraplootas, nor where he came from. Whenever he is asked about his past or what happened to his previous warband he simply shouts "THEY WEREN'T SQUIGGLY ENOUGH!" and resumes work without answering any more questions. It is noted that he seems rather more easily agitated and more likely to conduct impromptu surgery if he has been asked about it recently.
>>20281138I need a pic of squig legs.
>>20281191This is a squig
>>20281138I could see Vaedrisa trying to give him the information he needs to get another titan as part of some complicated plot to win his affection or something. It would probably backfire horribly though.
>>20281047Great, now he's Batman Beyond Mr. Freeze on top of everything else.
>>20281236That's a thing from Batman beyond?
>>20281234They also don't have the space for another titan. They'd probably just strip it down for more parts for Boris and slap everything else on the Loot Havva.>>20281266Mr. Freeze is reduced to a head in a jar setup with mechanical spider legs. Don't get me wrong, I love the squigfeet idea and fully endorse it, I just think it's kinda funny how he started as a mishmash of different mad scientists
>>20281236That was totally an unintentional reference.Should we have him swapping heads instead and it's his body that can function by itself?Also should probably stay away from anything too Frankie Fran, though an Ork version of that would be morbidly hilarious.
>>20281317I'm the git what wrote up squiggly legs and the name gitstitcha which compromised into squigstitcha (not to be all OC do not steel) and I have no idea what Frankie Fran is.I like the idea that his body has an autonomous movement skeleton that comically searches for it's decapitated head should they be separated.In such an event, my guess would be that the head just rebuilds a body from scratch and squiggly bits and starts over.
>>20281377I actually like Gitstitcha better than Squigstitcha, so feel free to go with that.
>>20281400It'll have to be put up to a consensus or some shit later on.
>What in Gork is dat fing?"I calls it: DA CENTISQIUG!">Why's it got dat grot stiched to da end of it?"Why do ya ask so many qwestuns?"
>>20281377Frankenfran is basically Frankenstein as by Japan, so everything's a girl.
I saw someone asked for the rulesheet for an imperator titan and didnt see it posted. So this could be Boris' baseline and just mod it to propa orky levelshttp://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m2440056_Imperial_Datasheet_-_Emperor_Battle_Titan.pdf
>>20281377*Franken Fran (derp not Frankie Fran) is a mad scientist girl who saves people's lives by drastically changing their bodies in guro-tastic ways. She can give you whatever you want, but it often comes with at a SAN reducing price. Which some of her patients apparently don't mind. Pic related to what she can do to herself.Anyway, it's not an intentional reference, so it's all good.
>>20281377>In such an event, my guess would be that the head just rebuilds a body from scratch and squiggly bits and starts over.OIY! BLUE!>Whaaat do you - what tha zoggin zog is you?!It's me, Dok Gitstitcha! I'z need ya ta help me wiff buildin a new body!>Now why the zog would I do that? You's zoggin adorable! Quit muckin about an' 'elp me ya git!>Oh Mr. Squiiiig, I found you a brand new friiiiend...Oh Gork help me, I'z gotta leg it!
This mad dok...Blue came to him, hoping he might have insight in certain parts of her unorky biology...that she later put to use in a certain machine...
>>20281497>>20281377>>20281300To be fair, heads in jars/detached from their body is far from a novel concept, so it's of no surprise.
>>20281510OI DUNNO WOT A FIANCEE IS BUT DAT GROT AINT RIGHT!
>>20281542You'z fulla holes, Blue! You'z just gotta plug em is all!
>>20281542>>20281559I knew it'd come to this./tg/ doesn't disappoint.
I got the most adorable mental image of Blue trying to round up the baby squigs and save them from Dok Gitstitcha like a kid who doesn't understand the purpose of raising piglets is to eat them. >"COME BACK 'ERE WIV MY SQUIGGLY BEASTS, YOU DAFT GIT, OI NEED 'EM FOR DA DEFFRODEO!"
>>20281618>BLUE GROT! I FINK DAT IF YA STIKK SOMETHIN' IN DERE, YOU WILL BE FEELIN' RIGHT PROPPA IN NO TIME!Dunno dok...but if ya say so...-some amount of tinkering later-ZOG ME! It really worked.
>>20281624Something tells me the little psychopath wouldn't much mind, so long as Mr. Squig is fine.
Roight, toime ta hit da burroughs and get sum Z's. Dunt touch nunna my writey bitz!
>>20281829Imma gonna touch da writey bitz.
>>20281691I will resist. I must focus on the newest member of the scraplootas.GODS THE TEMPTATION
>>20281172he probably joined up when the Blood Axez started joining.
Daily reminder that orks don't talk like lolcats.>check spoilers for how most Anons think orks speak, then check picture for how they actually speak"Oi'm gonna give ya wun moar warnin'", a beleaguered voice called from the Imperator's speakers, "Yew can haz surrender nao… or I'z gonna get sewious! I'z haz da lucky bloo grot wiv meh, yew cannot win! Oi am becum deff, de… des… d… KRUMPER OF WORLDZ!"
what if Blue made him a drone for his head like what Mr. Squig rides around on?
>>20282131Oh look, it's you again. We already went over this.>>20282138I guess it depends on how much she wanted to torment him and how much the other orks are willing to put up with two Squigkoptas.
>>20282131These threads have had varying degrees od ork-speak, from dis and dat to a well spoken hitgrot. But no one has been that fucking bad. Die in a fire, ya git.
>>20282267>Roight, toime ta hit da burroughs and get sum Z's.>Dunt touch nunna my writey bitz!>>20282237Yes, and each time I've posted that picture there has been 2-3 people saying "Oh, I didn't realize I was overdoing it so much. I'll make it better next time, thanks for posting that!"I'm offering a public service to make Boris threads and writefaggotry as good as possible. I only post this when it's getting disastrously lolcat-ty, in the hopes that it's just simple ignorance/misremembering, for the benefit of those posters who choose to use orkspeak.
>>20282336You can do it without being such a pretentious git about the whole affair, especially since it really hasn't appeared outside of a few posts of people being silly. To think I defended you last time you were around.
>>20282576I guess I'm sorry for giving you the benefit of the doubt.
>>20282336>>20282576Guys, let's not call names and fight here. There is need to keep the extremely silly out of the Ork speech to keep it intelligible. But there's no reason to be uncivil about it.Thankfully, I don't think the people who post the most egregious examples are prominent writefags.>>20282131Posting that example of official Ork speech is helpful, being confrontational is less so.We need to cooperate for the glory of the Scraplootas!
>>20282728I honestly didn't think I was confrontational. The last few times I've posted it have, it's received mostly positive responses. This time I added a humorous exaggeration from some Anon's Boris story as a sort of "scared straight" tactic. I guess I'll skip that bit from now on.Anyways, I mostly help when information from the codex/rules are required, so I'm back off to the shadows until I'm needed again.
>>20282636>imply we're all blithering idiots>"giving you the benefit of the doubt"Yeah, no.>>20282832You mean the story that was written by someone who, by their own admittance, doesn't even really participate in these threads? Anyways, I'm with >>20282728 so that's my last snarky post on the subject.
>>20282832You are the grammar, this thread needs.But not the one it deserves...You are... The Derknitt...
>>20281377Makes me think of Pretorius from The Mask cartoon. Split his head from his body, but his reason was multitasking.>>20282336Reading those phonically, they're actually pretty clear.
>>20283843>Suddenly remember him>Voiced by Tim CurryOh my childhood!
>>20284540maybe he thought he was in /b/.so here's a thought that crossed my tired brain: how much of a personality to demonic cores usually have?
>>20284881One would assume as much as any other possessed artifact, if not more. Though I don't suppose that much answers your questions.
>>20284944I'm just thinking there's room for development on the demon core.We know it hates the orks and everything, we know it's not happy with its current situation, but what's it gonna do about it?Signal some forces of Chaos and have Boris' current location always known to them?
>>20285103Yeah, but he gets ignored after the first few raids against Scraplootas due to Abaddon trying to cut down losses for his latest crusade. Nowadays only one or two raids by interested chaos groups per year instead of one per month.
>>20285103Well, the area of it's influence has been reduced to occasional bouts of corrupting the inside of Boris due to the WAAAGHball, so I don't think he's able to do much but shout threats and have yet more squigs welded to him. It seems like the Painboss might have some sort of repertoire going on with him, entailing Gitstitcha torturing the daemon with his boredom induced experiments.

What? Where did the marines come from? Are they after the funstikk?
>>20288927we're never going to let this go, are we?Let's just have Blue bludgeon someone with it already.
>>20289292Lets not forget that it's armed with warheads.Wouldnt be wise.
>>20289523I thought they were empty warheadsAnyway it isn't any stupider than tankbusta's with tankhamma's
What would be fun is for the "funstikk" to ACTUALLY be a kustom weapon Blue built for herself that just happens to look like a sex toy by accident.
>>20289581But...it IS a sextoy. She uses it and everything.
>>20289681why not both
>>20289681>>20289523it'd be extra stupid for the warheads to be live.Blue has a bit more brain power than to be shoving explosives into herself I'd think.
>>20289730Empty warheads.How about:It's a close range weapon made for quick repeating powerful strikes to crush whatever the hell it's pointed at?
>>20290021How about it's just a silly joke that doesn't need to be explained or rationalized away?
>>20290050this would be the best solution.so how about that Mad Dok?Anyone have anymore ideas since last night?
>>20290050Not involving it at all with actual canon sounds like an excellent idea.I of course do not intend to discourage fapfic writing.
>>20290404Was writing up Boris having heart issues because the Daemoncore is feeling depressed, so the Scraplootas decide to invite (read: kidnap) a Mad Dok to cure him. It's currently on my other computer and I think it's kind of shitty.Rewrite? Y/N?
>>20290404I like the prospect of the only ork who really remembers or knows about the daemon anymore is the Mad Dok, since he's always experimenting on him. The other orks have just kinda forgotten that there's anything under the WAAAGHball or that the WAAAAGHball wasn't just always there.>>20290472I prefer the idea of Gitstitcha just kind of showing up one day. Maybe he was drawn to them by the prospect of the squiggliest squiggly beasts in all the galaxy.
>>20282131How to orkify a sentence:Pretend you're mocking an Englishman.
>>20290472That's something they would get a big Mek or Wierdboy to do. Painboys and mad doks are for da boyz.Also daemon core depressed what?
>>20290535>I say, you tallywacking gibberflop, I may be predisposed to the disposition of considering going a bout of the ol rough and tumble fisticuffs go round with you and slapfibbit you right in your bonstifferous slappy ham if you don't start playing the shut-your-jawNo, I don't think that works too well. Though I'd love to see an ork say all those things to someone.
>>20290550Well, I was playing off the idea that Boris is a big Ork, so when he complains about having heart issues, the Painboss comes about to inspect Boris (inside Boris) and he checks out to be perfectly fine. So the Painboss is forced to deal with the daemon core who is finally at the stage where he realizes it would take an entire army to liberate him, and that wouldn't be worth it. So he decides to roll over and die rather than put up with the Orks any longer.
>>20283160>You mean the story that was written by someone who, by their own admittance, doesn't even really participate in these threads?Whoa, man, I never said that. I admitted to it being tortureporn (not an apt description, really) based in the 'funstikk universe'.I participate in these threads all the time.
>>20290595You made me chuckle heartily.
>>20290706Oh, my mistake.
>>20290684It's not that they think Boris is a big ork, it's that they think he IS the titan. All those metal bits in titan? Boris. That giant dakka? Boris' dakka. It's not that they view the titan as a biological entity but rather that they view Boris as a mechanical one, some forgetting entirely that he ever was just an ork.
How has this thread not yet been krumped?
>>20291184Wut.I still don't get what that whole marine thing was.
>>20291154>“Why smash a perfektly gud tank if you’z jus gonna build a zoggin nother wun!”is why
>>20291194No one did.

someone should draw the Mad Dok mucking about with the WAAAGHball, either welding more WAAAsquigs to it or feeding the WAAAsquigs already welded to it.
>>20291960I still want to see a picture of The squigs licking, sleeping and the other squiggy sort of things while welded to it
>>20292016>>20291960I think we can all agree the WAAAGHball needs some sort of visual representation. Maybe even an "internal" view of the daemon getting eternally pestered by WAAsquigs.
>>20292016they probably just all stare at the demon, making it feel... uncomfortable seeing how they stopped squirming.>>20292032probably yells at them to stop looking at it.
>>20292032AgreedA defeated looking daemon half heartedly glaring at the squigs while one licks him
>>20291655It does sound funny. And it would be even more proppa orky.
>>20292205ive gotta agree with the other guy and just say no we already dealt with this thing before.
>>20292205Thirding the noIt was a joke, it was funny with the comic. That's as far as we need to go with it
>>20292245Just ignore him. We're discussing the WAAAGHball now anyways.Speaking of, what does the Daemon core look like? Is it just a reactor but glowing all Chaos-y or is it a full blown daemon that's just grafted in place? Because I've mainly been imagining something closer to the latter.
>>20292275Speaking of which, I've never seen one of these 'reactor cores' before.I've never thought about it.
>>20292275I have no idea what it looks like... the imperial titans use some kind of sentient computer in their cores, so something like one of those refrigerated rooms that holds a bunch of servers maybe?Or would it be more like a nuclear reactor? Except with more teeth and tentacles.
I always figured a literal ball that held a summoned daemon in place
>You will never hear an orky version of the Megas XLR theme
I was imagnining The Orb of Magnus. Yet bigger. And with squigs attached to it.
>>20292362Well, Chaos Titans are just Imp Titans that have been tainted, so I imagine it'd keep the same basic infrastructure>>20292453So basically a daemon stuck in a giant hamster ball? With squigs further attached to that.
what's the name of that image archive you guys like to use so much?
For some reason I want this Daemon core to speak with a upper class British accent. I'm imagining a Daemon trying to enjoy his tea and crumpets, but there's a squig sitting in his cup and several other squigs chewing on his crumpets.
>>20292762I just keep imagining him yelling like Morbo.SQUIGS DO NOT GO THERE, PUNY GREENSKIN!>Quiet, you, I'll make it fit!
>>20292746cus I need pics of orcs and SoB's

has anyone actually drawn Zizzbitz’s Patented Zizzomatic Chainkutlass yet?
>>20270785Fuck, too big for the wiki.
>>20294121Nope. There's only even one drawing of Zizzbitz himself and it predates the existence of Zizzbitz.
>>20294214someone should draw it.I hope we don't end up with a lot of really cool ideas that become too overwhelming and never get drawn.
>>20294121Drawfag here, I added the Chainkutlass to the list of things to drawl. I have been busy with work all weekend and havent had much drawing time. If anyone wants to update with a list of things need drawing....you should...do that....
>>20295111>I hope we don't end up with a lot of really cool ideas that become too overwhelming and never get drawn.Too late!At least we got a badass motherfucking Boris out of it. And lots of other great drawfaggotry, mind you.
>>20295546We should all reach deep within our computer and drawfaggot the entire thread in MSpaint.It's fabulous!
>>20295546coolthe WAAAGHball should also on the list.>>20295659yeah, I'm still making mental bets with myself how long it'll be till Blue starts meeting the other /tg/ OCs.
>>20295719Xeno's gonna be first. It's inevitable. And then, in the great Blueberry Wars, none shall be spared.
>>20295788I was thinking more along the lines of Cultist-chan.
>>20295826Oh she'll be next, but Xeno is gonna be first. You really think this board is big enough for two blueberry waifus? Shit, the only reason we've seen as little Xeno as we have is because these threads are more about Scraplootas than Blue herself. If they were more Blue centric, we'd already be facing a full on Xeno invasion.
>>20295861I never see anything about Xeno (as a character).I'm only aware of a handful of /tg/ OCs in the first place.
>>20295896Tau that got all pariah'd out by Necrons. Was the central character of a really long quest. Someone will post in these threads as her from time to time.
>>20295861I like Blue a lot more. For one thing, she's an appealing alternative to those who don't really like diaper porn.I mean... diaper porn. Its an important aspect of the fanbase that she shits all over herself. That alone makes her lose in any comparison against... anything, imaginable, in the history of man.I'd find a dude, or an inanimate 5x5 piece of stone, better waifu material than Xeno.
>>20295969I never said Xeno was a good waifu, mind you, just that her supporters won't like the idea of a second tau waifu, even though Blue has very few waifu qualities thus far. Unless brutally murdering grots and blowing up Spehss Muhreen heads is kawaii as fuck and I'm just missing something. The Mr. Squig story was pretty cute, though.
>>20295929I wasn't involved in it so I didn't know.>>20295969>diaper porn......oh... OHNow I half way know what this thing is that we're talking about. I thought that was more of a board in-joke than a character.>>20296021her antics are actually quite endearing, in a twisted way.
>>20296152Oh I find her adorable as the dickens, but it's not a waifu thing, you know?
>>20296197yeah, she's still like what? 10 years old?I know Tau develop differently, but...Actually, come to think of it, I don't think I'm into waifus in general.How old are the other Scraplootas anyway?
>>20296238Orks don't age, I don't think. They just grow bigga.And yeah, me neither.
>>20296238Don't Tau only live to 30 or something?
>>20296300I thought it was to 50.>>20296270oh, right...Here's another thing to discussDoes Blue generally live outside of Boris in her workshop next to Zizzbitz's, or in a place in Boris' elbow?I've seen both used as well as some unfinished writefaggory about Blue's first time venturing into Boris on her own and having to deal with the Grotocracy (going to see the head council and all) because they didn't think she was a grot.
>>20296357Dang, she's 10 in the Fanseer fic because I thought Tau lived until 30 and thus 10 would be adult already. Ah well.
>>20296357The Blue's workshop thing on the Boris card was just someone trying to fill up space, but she probably has a little hideaway somewhere on Boris. Her main base of operations seems to be Blue's Korner in the Mek Shop, though. Which makes sense, as I doubt she'd want to be too far from Zizzbitz for at least the first few months when she was still a tau.
>>20296399That's why the fanseer noted she was still oddly underdeveloped for a 10 year old. And a bit bluer than other tau. Basically, the author was trying to >imply the orks had WAAAGH'd Blue into an ultrablue foreverchild.>inb4 BUT DATS NOT HOW THE WAAAAGH WORKSI know, I know, I didn't write the thing, I'm just delivering the news. Besides, I find the whole her subconsciously willing herself into a blue ork kind of cute.Some day Tinka will have to watch Blue die of old age without understanding what's wrong with her
>>20296399again, Tau age differently than humans, so she could be budding into adulthood by now.She probably doesn't eat right enough to be as grown as she could be though.>>20296402I just remember reading in some of the writefaggory that she had a hammock set up in one of Boris' elbows. I think it was in one of the farseer ones.
>>20296474that whole interview took place in whatever that brain world projecting thing is called, so maybe the farseer was just seeing Blue how she imagined herself to look.
>>20296474Okay so. Can we do some theorycrafting about what exactly the WAAAAGH would do to a Tau who is incorporated into it before I go and write more bullshit that upset the aspies?
>>20296556Write whatever you want. We already have glowing, warp mutated, psyker nullifying squigs for fucks sake. The amount of crazy shit that goes on with the Scraplootas, I could totally see a Tau getting affected like that. For all we know, the WAAAsquigs amplify the WAAAGH, causing even more weird hand-wavy shit to occur
>>20296556I think it would do next to nothing to a Tau except give them a different outlook on life and maybe be stronger than the standard Tau due to all the hand-to-hand fighting they'd have to do.
>>20296615Okay.Honestly I'm not that versed in 40k lore, so I ended up pulling a lot of things out of my ass for the whole Fanseer Inception bit.
>>20296674The WAAAGH is more like psychic WD40 that allows orkish inventions to work better than they really should rather than the immense, reality skullfucking power /tg/ likes to joke it up as, but you never really know what might go down if you mingle that with Chaos. Chaos' whole deal is that they muck things up, after all.
Did we ever settle on a name for da Painboss?
>>20296746Dr Squiggit i think
>>20296746Gitstitcha was used the most.
>>20296771>>20296746Dok Gitstitcha is the one I see used the most in this thread.
>>20296771>>20296474nope it was Dok Gitstitcha
>>20296739Scraplootas run on tg canon anyway so the WAAAGH is reality warping shit combined with reality raping of chaos
>>20296824>>20296802>>20296789Gitstitcha. I like it.
>>20296833uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh really? Is this a thing that was 'officially' decided on?
>>20296860ha ha hanothing is "official"thought I don't like the idea of Blue growing big teeth and other orky things.I like the ork in her better expressed through what she does and how she does stuff since using the WAAAGH to alter her physical appearance would take away from some of what makes her so interesting.
>>20296860Not really. It's just that if someone writes a story about Blue looking abnormally young for her age and implies that it's due to the WAAAGH mingled with Chaos, no one's gonna get all upset like those rules sticklers. The only "official" rationalization that's been decided on is who gives a shit, we got an orky tau.
so how does Derknitt get along with the dok?It's established that Derknitt is the one in charge of dealing with the demon core's chaos-y antics, so I'd imagine he doesn't like the dok provoking it.Or maybe he encourages the dok to torment it as pay back for being a noisy git and causing trouble for him.
Blue was making her way back to the Mek shop, with the arm load of scrap she'd bought off some boys with her eccess teef. She had some good bits from a hover tank she wanted to try to use in her Dro'n Shield to make it good for smakkin' gits. She reaches her personal corner and walks by Mr Squigg, who was lieing lazily on the floor. Dumping her load on her work table, she pulls out some schematics and pours over them."If I c'n hook the hover pad gubbins to the outer shell, and run it on low, it should make the shield a little stronga, and then rig a pressure trigga to blast in on hi when it use it to krump somethen'..." She plucked the converted Tau drone from the wall, and pried the metal casing open, and began to work on the insides. As she continued to work, she started hearing a sound, subtle at first, but gradually growing louder. She didn't pay it any mind at first, but it was constant and growing steadily louder, distracting her from her project. What was it? Stomping? No, that wasn't it, it sounded like several feet hitting the ground in unison. What was the word? She curled her mouth thoughtfully. That was it! Marching.A growl from her pet caught her attention, and she turned to look outside to the ship's hold. What greeted her sight was several Grots, marching in unison. They kept getting closer to her hub, then all at once came to a halt, turning about face in her direction.
>>20298300Blue was overcome with unease. Ten, fifteen, there must have been nearly thirty Grots at her doorstep. Normaly Grots didn't intimidate her at all, but with these numbers, they could probably krump a Nob without much difficulty. She started to reach for her shoota on the wall, when a lone grot moved forward from the rest of the group. He was smartly dressed in a fitted uniform, complete with hat, and had a unchararisticly commanding pressence.Blue tried to hide her fear as the gretchin walked inside. "Whatcha want, ya git?" She spoke in a harsh tone, so he wouldn't get any ideas about who was boss."Call me Pa'mmol." the Grot answered. "I've come fa bussiness." "Bus'ness?" she said, calming down a bit. "What kina' bus'ness?"The Grot reached into his coat and produced a rolled paper."I want ya ta build this." he explained, handing it to her. She took it and unfurled it. On it was a somewhat crude, yet admitadly detailed blueprint for a small tank. She looked over it silently for over a minute. "Well?" Pa'mmol said expectantly.
>>20298321"No sweat." Blue retorted. "I could build this in ma sleep." The design wasn't anything to complicated. Building it would take a little work, but it looked like fun."Glad to hear it." Pa'mmol said flatly. "'Cause I want twenty of them."Blue jerked her head up. "Bwuwhahuh?!" she gargled in bewilderment. "Twenny'? Do you have any idea how much scrap that'll take? Not to mention how much teef it cost!"Pa'mmol raised a hand and snapped his fingers. Two more grots walked in carrying a heavy metal case. They plopped it down on the floor, and one opened it. It was full to the brim with teef. The sheer volume mesmerized blue, there could be over a thousand teef in that case."Is this sufficient?" Pa'mmol said.Blue turned to him sloowly. "How soon do ya need em'?""Take your time." he assured. "I came to ya cause I heard you did propa quality. Don't want to muck that up. My boys will assist ya in getting together any scrap y'll need.""How'd you get all this anyhows?" the blue grot said skeptically.Pa'mmol adjusted his hat. "Through sacrifice, and perserance. And some right proppa motivation: we as a group have no interested in dieing meaningless deaths just cause we's grots. We came to the coclushan to form this here battalion, and pulling our resources, aim to make it a reality."Blue couldn't help but be impressed. It was likely this grot was the reason the others could unite in such a way."We best get started then."
>>20298347Thus began the First Grot Tank Battalion, the 'Eavy Metal Gits.
>>20298347Fire and debris rained down on all around them, as Pa'mmol moved his troops forward. The Killy' Fox came to a halt, as he surveyed the battle field with his eyescopes. A group of Chaos marines had been ambushed by Kommandos in the distance, however they were regrouping as some armor support was moving in to join up with them.He wasn't having any of that."All squads, fowad'!" he bellowed into his speaky box, as the five contingents of 4 tanks each surged forward, cutting down any stray marines they happened upon unchallenged."Second and third squads, circle round eastward, box them in! I dun wanna any of these gits coming out alive!"---Marco cursed as he fended of another orc with his power sword. Outmaneuvered, by orks! He had ordered his men to fall back, and they were fighting desperately to keep from getting surrounded. He saw in the distance 3 of their tanks making their way to his position. His forces were breaking away from the nobs and managed to find some cover. Soon they would make for their armor and counter attack these savages. He looked at the tanks hopefully, then watched as they all simultaneously erupted in to flames. His eyes widened as one flipped over.
>>20298687Over the horizon he saw them. Five, ten, a whole bloody battalion! He could just make out the tank commander's voice."On my mark."Marco sighed in defeat. "Outmaneuvered.""FIRE!!" Pa'mmol roared, as the battalion's guns flamed in unison. The whistling screeched in Marcos' ears."By Gretchin..." his last words not audible as steel rained down on his men, splattering his men and himself into a gory mess.Tank Commanda Pa'mmol took out his speaky box."Keep movin, ya gits, we got more work to be doing!"So began the legend of the most brilliant grot commanda that eva lived.Not to say there was a high standard to make.
>>20298683I like that name, actually
>>20298827Now they just have to wear Vietnam style helmets and shit with writing all over it>Born to krump>'Eavy Metal till I die!>A picture of Blue in a bikini straddling a giant spanner painted across the side of one
the idea came to me do to the Scraploota's having such a surplus in grots. Only using them as expendable shock troops seemed like a waste, especialy when small tanks could be slapped together with all the destroyed vehicles they'd leave in their wake. so lotsa grots+lotsa scrap=lotsa grot tanks
>>20298996I think it's been discussed a few times that Scraplootas might field some grot armor, but we never really came to a major consensus. The idea of a battalion of grottanks, warbikers, and deffkoptas all backing up Boris sounds rad as fuck, though.
>>20298996kinda works with that other story with the grots trying to steal Blue's grot sized tank.They figured it'd be easier to buy her services than steal from her.
>>20299035yeah, and throw in some killa kans too, since those are alos grot operated>>20299047that was a truk, not a tank, though that could be interchangeable, orks and all.They only tried to cause Derknitt, the kommando that hates blue, put them up to it.
>>20299075>They only tried to cause Derknitt, the kommando that hates blue, put them up to it.Nah, they normally try to steal it and end up wrecking the thing, so Blue is constantly rebuilding it. Derknitt caused an increase in attempted thefts is all.
>>20299121Yeah he put a bounty on it so any time it got wrecked the grots who brought him proof got a bonus
Question. Would the warboss have his grots Tapp and Spigot with him in a battle? I mean, they sound like a liability in the heat of things.
