Blue/Scraplootas thread.Who/what are they?http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Bluehttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/ScraplootasThe Scraplootas are a clan of Orks who managed to steal a Titan from the forces of chaos. A Mekboy took a shine to the Titan and now refuses to leave it, believing that he IS the Titan. Boris the Titan also has a complete, functioning Gretchin bureaucracy working on its inside.Later on, they were attacking a Tau colony and found a little blue Tau girl. Mistaking her for a blue Grot, she was embraced into the Ork society to help with mechanics. She quickly became an integral part of the clan.TL;DR: Shit thread spawns interesting character with waifu potential, /tg/ jumps on it, and it leads to the creation of a great Ork clan with some hilarious quirks.
Imma request some porn to Greenmarine. Just so you know.
>>20120065I suppose it was bound to happen eventually.
Reposted from previous thread, in relation to the Grot politics on the inside of the Titan:>Sir, the left elbow seperatist movement has taken up arms.>They are fighting against us with weapons?>No sir. They've jammed the elbow mechanism, so the arms are up
We still making new personalities for the clan?As I recall one of the suggestions was Fizzgutz the weirdboy, who only thinks he is a weirdboy.And the weird grotz who actualy do things when he tries to use a power, however nobody notices them about.
>>20120141Totally different to the Left Elbow People's Front. Or the People's Front of Left Elbow.I suddenly have an urge to run a DH campaign inside a titan. Or maybe a fuckhuge ship.
>>20120176the weird grot is actually three weird grotz standing on each other's shoulders. But someone has to acknowledge their weirdboyness, though.
>>20120199I second this notion.
>mfw Tau skin is supposed to be grey, not blue
>>20120199i like it
>>20120178What about the Front of the People of the Left Elbow?Oh wait, I see him, he's right over there.BOOOOOOOO
>>20120065As long as it's cute and fits her, I'd be fine with it. Maybe have her topless while working on an orky chestpiece, so she can do fittings.
>>20120233We now re-write the entire "Life of Brian" film to take place inside the Titan.
>>20120211Heh, I like it.
>>20120261Need me to grab a script for you? I remember stumbling upon the entire script for Holy Grail somewhere a long time ago...
>>20120291HOW CAN A SERVO-SKULL CARRY A COCONUT
>>20120301It's not a servo-skull, it was a very naughty civilian!
>>20120307Come see the heresy inherent in the system!
In these threads: Pure, concentrated imagination and character creation.I love it.
>>20120178>or maybe a fuckhuge shipoh boy. That reminds me;I always wanted to do something about exploring the hull of a space hulk, or the underhive of a city, and finding about several factions of weird creatures fighting each other because they can't be assed to agree which ones are Hruds and which ones aren't: the space skavens, the bugs from Xenology, the green robed critters from the rulebooks, or even the unidentified xenos from Rogue Trader. They all share the same basic description: hunched, creepy, stealthy, wearing robes and wielding long rifles, but nobody knows which ones should be called "Hruds".
>>20120216bluish greythe codices say bluish grey
>>20120319I thought we were a Monarchical Empire!
"OI BORIS YA GIT!" Warboss Urtylug bellowed "DEM METAL BAWKSES IZ SHOOTAN DA BOYZ UP, HURRY UP'N KRUMP EM".With an incredible amount of baning, crashing and just general collateral damage Boris lumbered towards the fighting. "I AM FURY INCARNATE, TREMBLE BEFORE ME AWESOME POWA" the voice from inside the titan blared out.For a few seconds there was silence and then a deafening roar of rockets flying overhead towards the tanks that had been mowing down the orkish mob.As Boris lumbered onward towards more fighting he could here the boss down by his feet screaming something about him taking too long to show up."Sorry boss, me legs locked up"
>>20120355It says, "the Castle of Waaaagh"
>>20120199>>20120211Someone should edit this into the wiki
>>20120385He gave us...HIS LASPISTOL!Might as well go back to Brian, since I'm more familiar with it than Grail.
>>20120377>All during that one encounter, the Grot president of Titan was assassinated, leading to a general uprising in the legs, and a complete reshuffle of power in all the different departments.For some reason, this idea is hilarious.
>>20120411We need a upper-class Nob with a lisp. "The little Gwetchin has spiwit!"
>>20120446"Is there something funny about my Nob fwiend... Shoota... Stompa?"(yeah i'm not really familiar with 40k)
>>20120480There has to be a Meaning of Life, "waffer-theen meent" joke somewhere.
>>20120480Why are you in this fucking thread then?"Oh, I don't actually know or care about 40k, I just wanted to spam Monty Python lines like an idiot"
>>20120534Monty Python lines...with a twist!
>>20120534I know a bit about 40k, and I wouldn't mind learning more. Maybe get those Marines I had, repaint them or something.>>20120517Haven't seen MoL (yet). Is it good?
>>20120568If you want to learn about 40k, read the fucking fluff. If you want to talk about Monty Python, go to fucking >>>/tv/ or something.Just leave this thread. You have contributed NOTHING.
>>20120568Out of the three movies, it's the worst. That doesn't really mean a lot though, considering the quality of all of them. Still really good, much closer to the show. A bunch of tangentially connected skits.
>>20120582This is getting entirely too silly! And I haven't seen any other Anons complaining... Actually I did see some REPLYING. So there's that.Anyway, have a Warhamster.
>>20120568Excuse this guy >>20120582 but you should know that Monty Python references are not looked upon kindly unless they are extremely relevant. Their humor has just been milked dry by generations of casual entertainers, to the point that only the source material can still be enjoyed.
>>20120614Yeah I know, I only came in because I saw the reference from Brian. Polite sage because not contribootan.
>>20120211Should I throw the weirdgrotz thing into the wiki? Or is it getting a bit much?
>>20120635He's a bunch of grotz, so, he's pretty relevant, but I'd wait for more original content about him to get produced. The original concept isn't enough.
>>20120635There isn't much there yet, seems interesting. I'm just inking and colouring my drawing, so if there's still interest in using it for the page it'll be a bit neater.
>>20120635I uploaded the image and tossed it into a gallery for now. Just needs the fluff, and possibly get moved to a different part of the page for said fluff.
>>20120673Do we have anything beyond "three grots in a coat"?
>>20120688Not that I can see.So we need more fluff.
On a side note, this isn't so much a 'clan' as it is a tribe or warband. Tribes/warbands are collective armies of Orks. The Clans are galaxy-wide fundamental beliefs, opinions, and preferred color schemes that Orks gravitate towards.
>>20120737Which would be more fitting? I can edit the wiki to either.
>>20120737No, Klans are something more solid than that. They're big tribes that have a very specific and strong culture.
>>20120737Freebooterz, aren't they?
>>20120776First off, they're freebootaz, so they're neither a klan nor a tribe.
>>20120176Did somegit say...WERIDGROTZ?!?!
>>20120794No they aren't. There are Bad Moonz, Deathskulls, and Goffs scattered across the entire galaxy, many of which in different tribes/warbands/waaaghs. Yet they all tend to follow the same general ideas. There are warbands or tribes made up of an entire clan, or even several. But a clan is not an combined group of Orks. This thread is more accurately about a warband or tribe. Not a clan. Because if it's a big deal for a clan to have looted a titan, then that's one pathetically tiny accomplishment seeing as the Deathskulls have uncountable numbers of looted equipment, far beyond a single titan.
>>20120801>>20120795Freebootaz are an unofficial "7th clan". They might as well be one, though they're really just a "everything else" or "no fucking clan".
>>20120886Ok.So tribe then. Is that more accurate?
>>20120886each klan does have a hierarchy. Belonging to a klan is not something that happens like sexuality does. The Goffs are led by Gazghkull, the Badmoonz are led by Nazdreg, and so on.
>>20120688I can't actually write well myself but here goes"why do I always have to carry the both of you on me back? You always get to stand on the top and Grops feet near my face all the time stink, i've had enuff of this" the grot on the bottom of the trio complained loudly."quiet ya git or they'll krump the lot of us" Grop snapped back before smacking the poor grot he was standing on, this resulted in lots of wobbling, yelling and screaming"ENUFFFFF" Werp, the grot standing on both of them cried out the air around him crackling with psychic energy.For a few tense seconds there was silence as the two grots calmed down, this silence was broken by screams and yelling as their coat burst into flames. All three of them rolled around in a green smoking mass on the floor trying to extinguish the flames.A few feet away an Ork looking at this spectacle dropped the mushroom he was chewing on and proclaimed loudly "GORK 'N MORK, I FINK I'M A WIZZURD"
>>20120918No, Ghaz is a Goff Warlord. Nazdreg is a Bad Moon Warlord. Neither are the warlords of their clans, as there are plenty of Orks who follow those clans that have never heard of them, nor do they follow them.
>>20120917Yes. Or it's a Warband. Or Waaagh. Whatever size you want it to be.
>>20120951Probably just a tribe.I'll edit now.
I once had an idea about weirdgrotz, too.One was also three grotz moving together as one unit.They were previously in charge of keeping a weirdboy in check until one day when his head exploded the grotz were struck by psychic lightning.That caused their heads to swell up and start developing psychic powers.But those only work whem they are close to each other.The other idea was it just being one grot who had the weirdboy abilities and was carried around by two orks, a shootaboy who was using the grot as a gun and aimed him at the enemies and a smartboy who'd keek an eye on the grot to see what kinda power he might use next and would then tell the shoota where to aim the grot next.
>>20120980Don't worry too much about it. It's mostly just my OCD kicking in... much like a marine fan would chime in if someone were referring to a fan-made M41 combat-company of loyalist space marines as a "Legion".
>>20121010a drawfag who draws porn and cheesecake. good cartoonish style, tasty-looking coloring, that stuff.
>>20120921I love you
Recently, a wierdboy within the titan found a set of priests clothing within storage and began to preach of the power of Gork and Mork. He has taken upon himself to punish those who "Ain't proppa orky an green." His determination of this comes from anything like it being 'Tewsday' all the way up to the direction of the wind (which he assumes is blowing a certain way, since he's inside a titan)He punishes the unorky by krumpin' the offender and throwing him within an empty room located in a servo between the bow and the arm. They must then serve out their sentence in "Limbow" as they are jostled, flipped, and dropped, by the spinning servo.Just a quick idea I had- You guys can probably adapt it better.
>>20121049Edited it anyway. It's appreciated.I mean shit, if we're going to do something we might as well do it right.
>>20121107This could be combined with the other weirdboy we have, the one who is not actually a weirdboy, he only thinks he is.
>>20120921Hah. I like that.
>>20121127That;s sounds pretty good. He's just messed up enough in the head and runs around dressed like an orky imperial priest complete with a huge tome. The tome is used to smack other orks around.
By the way, Drawfags, Feel free to uploat shit straight to the wiki
>>20121170>IT SEZ ROIGHT 'ERE IN DA CODORKS GORKAMORKA YOU'Z MUCKIN ABOUT!
I kinda like the idea of weirdgrotz too. Though the idea of them dicking around/moving an ork shaped scarecrow kinda thing would be more comic. Course this leads to deluded-not-weirdboy still needing something, so 'lucky' grotz he keeps around which are weirdgrotz, but don't know they are weird grotz. Now moving into "fuck. This klan has lot's of weirdgrotz who don't know they are weird" territory. Alright enough of my rambling.
>>20120211Slenderboy? Skinnygutz da Weirdboy?
>>20121170>The tome is used to smack other orks around.Hah.>"Follow my wurds or suffa da wrath of my tome of justice"
>>20121342Three wierdboyz (really, a dozen wierdgrotz) out of the SEVERAL HUNDRED used to make up both the crew of Boris da Titan and his accompanying horde isn't a huge number. We may need more Mek bitz, though, as we've really moved away from that whole aspect of LOOTIN' an' UPGRAYEDDZ. (Da double-d is for DOUBLE DAKKA)
Right, I'm going to bed, I hope there's going to be lots of good shit when I wake up again.And people, feel free to edit the wikis.
>>20121342Well it was formerly a chaos titan, so maybe the corruption or former corruption has something to do with it? Since orks naturally resist Chaos it only affect their psychic latency but they are still connected to the WAAAAAGH field. Grots are being affected more since they do a "bit" more thinking than most Boys, or it could be since Grots are what do most of the menial maintenance within the machine itself.Also, since Orks do all sorts of competition when not fighting other tribes or race, what kind of competition would emerge within the Titan? I could see boyz tying themselves to ropes and swinging down the sides of the titan fighting eachother swashbuckler style.Maybe for the main even you put one Ork on either gun and then have them swing or rocket jump at eachother for Ork jousting.>>20121328YES
>>20121342This fits with the idea I put in the dead thread:>I like the idea of the weirdboy sticking a weirdgrot on the end of a stick and wielding him like a staff, but I can't think of a reason why at the moment.
Weirdgrot horde guy back again.The chaos influence could potentially be an explaination for it. I mean if ork spores are growing in the dark recesses of this things chassis it could induce a mutation, or at least the latent chaossy stuff drifting about turning on the weirdboy gene. Probably explains why Boris went nutty. So now really, along with a high proportion of weirdgrots (and fake weirdboys) and meks, we would end up with lots of Weirdsquigs. So what we have here, is an especially well (relatively) made psychically charged effigy of gork/mork. The inferno cannon is now a WAAAAGH! Kannon, firing beams of raw WAAAGH! The titans core is now green and screams WAAAAGH!, it's feet temble the earth leaving glowing green pools of, unsurprisingly, WAAAAGH!
>>20121511>WeirdsquigsWield those suckers like grenades, but filled with raw, psychic WAAAGH energies. They'd both drive normal psykers insane or kill them outright and powercharge your orks at the same time, or they could be distilled into Supastrong Fightin' Juice by a particularly enterprising Mad Dok.
>>20121579Grotz with catapults, tossing weirdsquigs indiscriminately into the oncoming <anybody>. Bound to do something.
>>20121511>>20121579The problem about this route is that it completely rapes the fluff.Can we at least try to keep it within the boundaries of (40k's) reality?
>>20121601weyrdsquigs are canon. They're in Xenology.
>>20121601Fair enough. Weirdgrots can stay at least, right? Either way, this is all getting away from the Kommando + Waves o' Grots thing the Scraplootas are centered around.
>>20121601Owso? Ork specialities function based on need and latent waaagh! it's not outside posibility than the gene would switch on due to all of the warp contamination in the naturally smarter grots. The Waaagh! Core is lots of bullshit though. Kannon maybe not. Weirdsquigs are legit, just not common. Back to warp contamination causing the gene present to switch on. I suppose you could argue theres no actual NEED for these things within the klan so the genes wouldn't express themselves in the orkoid spawn.
>>20121511I'd even go so far as even saying the heart of the titan is a literal beating heart in the shape of a green, glowing squig called the WAAAASQUIG. It generates a tiny bit of WAAAAAGH on its own but mostly it captures and reflects the WAAAGH generated by the ork tribe themselves so it's dependant on how orky the group is being.This has been learned of by other Orks and the titan is now sought after by rival tribes for the legendary squig.Why is it legendary and how did the word spread so fast? Thanks to none other than our pilot."EY, GUESS WOT? EYE'V GOT AH' GLOWING SQUIG FOR AH HEART. YOU WANT IT? TOO BAD, INSTEAD I'M GONNA STOMP YOUSE AND TAKE YER STUFF. HURR HURR HURR!
>>20121636I prefer the term "ironing out the details", but I can't necessarily disagree.
>>20121636Yeah. The stuff about the Titan is gold though.As is Blue, but that's a given.
>>20121645And that explains the WAAAGH!core without me having to justify it. You are a scholar and a gentleman
>>20121645>>20121635Nevermind this >>20121642 then. Unless we can adapt it to fit better?
>>20121645Boris is more poetic than that, ya git!>YOU DARE QUESTION MY ORKINESS?! WITHIN THIS METAL BODY BEATS A HEART OF PURE WAAAAGH GIVEN FORM OF SQUIG GLOWING GREEN AS GORK AN MORK UPON YE. FEAR MY WRATH, FOR IT IS AS UNENDING AS MY GLORIOUS FORM!>But Boris, ya end right ova ere.>IT WAS AN ECKSPRESHUN YA PLEBIAN GROT! NOW GETS OUTTA MY WAY AFORE I KRUMP YOU
>>20121695Messed up on my linking, nevermind this.>>20121677Thanks, though I did think it was a bit of stretch. Maybe it started working better only once more Orks learned of it? The whole WAAAAGH field thing?There could even be a dark secret that it's not even real, it's just a naturally glowy squig put there by an ork thinking he "waz' cunnin'"The question now is who is it and why'd they do it?
>>20120029>Shit thread spawns interesting character Awesome!>with waifu potential, Shit.
>>20121718S-SORRY BOSS, WON'T 'APPEN AGAIN.Is it wrong that I picture him with rand bionics plugged into him as he stands resolute in roman regalia mixed with 1700's finery?
>>20121740Well it was a chaos titan. The core was a daemon is now a WAAAGH! entity. It just happens to look like a big glowing squig. Or a glowing squig that is naturally conductive and is just another link in the titans circuitry. Yeah i'm out of ideas for that. I tried! Oh lord, i tried.
>>20120385Boris' Moving CastleHow about a new character>Gramma NobHe is an oddboy who is obsessed with speakin' 'proppa orkish'. He goes around with his 'book o wurdz', which is actually a really beaten, battered, and waterstained Low Gothic grammer book.
Back to the Scraplootas as a whole, I imagine the few boys they've got left would either be Swashkrumpas who are good at swinging from ledge to ledge due to constant climbing around on the Titan or Stormboyz who jet around from place to place. They probably kind of suck at open warfare due to the fact that they've mainly only got grots, so they'd be a city ambush tribe. Basic Scraploota tactics are as follows: 1. Drop Boris into the middle of a city2. Spew waves and waves of gretchins out of Boris like ants out of an acacia tree3. Stormboys, Kommandos, and Swashkrumpas swing about assassins creed style, ransacking everything they can4. ???5. Profit! (In the form of a blue grot) >>20121761Honestly, Blue has been mentioned maybe once this thread. Everybody's been all over the Scraplootas and their titan.>>20121788Maybe a bunch of glowing squigs welded together? And every time a new glowing squig is found, it's welded onto the WAAAGHball just for good measure. Maybe even the daemon is still alive, he just has a bunch of squigs welded to him.
>>20121854>"FOOLISH MORTALS! I WILL RETAKE CONTROL OF MY BODY AND I WILL-HEY! STOP THAT! STOP! AARG WHY DOES IT SMELL OF EXCREMENT? IT'S CHEWING MY FAAAACE">Whyz dat weirdsquig yellin?>Cuz. Itz weird.
>>20121838We already have Fizzgutz da Klerik, an ork who thinks he's a weirdboy and the personal prophet of Gork. He even already has a book, the Codorks of Gorkamorka.
>>20121963Litul Buk o' WAAAGH!
What about a Grot Git who gathered up a bunch of excess grots, gave them knives, and tied them to the back of his armor? When in fights, he'll grab one and hurl it into the mix, and it slashes and bites it's way back to him, since being on his back is safer than being in the fight. Maybe even give him a grot turret on his shoulders, too.So basically, he's equal parts Headcrab Carrier, Olimar, and weapons platform.
>>20121938>OrkstartesYou're straying perilously close to Deffwotch.It's an Ecclesiarchy tome that the owner can't read. The title probably changes as needed.>AN' ROIGHT 'ERE IN DA MORKDEX GORKUS, CHAPTA LOTZ, 'LOOTIN', IT SEZ>OI! I THOUGHT YOU CALLED IT DA CODORKS GORKAMORKA?>*krump* SHUT IT! 'O'S DOIN DA TELLIN ROUND 'ERE? AS I WUZ SAYIN...
>>20121854Korresh was having a bad day, for you see, in the life of a hungry daemon there is nothing worse than being cut down in your prime. One moment he was the proud demon rattling across the battlefield in his titan body, blasting and stomping across worlds, razing cities, and feasting upon the souls of the dead. This was all true, up until the point that a tribe of seemingly insignificant green skins found their way into his body. Klanking, rattlings, stabbing, and killing their way through his insides. Killing his crew and denting his interior. His last memory of the outside world was the sound of an earthquake. No... It couldn't have been an earthquake. He knew that sensation far too well from his own rumbling across the fields of war. Nay, for this was an earthquake inside of him. Twisting an churning its way through his insides like an intestinal cramp that would make a daemon of Nurgle giggle with glee, hundreds of squigs frothed forth from his venting system.
>>20122077They quickly surrounded his core, the source of his very essence, they bit, grabbed, and tussled at him. Korresh shook, lashing out with psychic bursts of energy but for every vanquished squig, a dozen more took its place. It was seemingly never ending until some of the squigs started glowing green. Somehow beginning being able to resist his lashes, these WAAAGHsquigs held him back with the echoes of bellows of orks around them."FOUL GREEN ONES, RELEASE ME FROM THIS PRISON OR I WILL DEVOUR YOU ALL."With Korresh's psychic emanations cut off from the outside, the only response he got was in the form of an unpside down squig that began to unceasingly licking his forhead
>>20122072Oh man, we need one of those, too. I like the idea of grots being so plentiful that the Scraplootas use them as raw materials as often as they use scrap metal or anything else. Hence why all the weirdgrots will do things like hide in the titan or stand on each others' shoulders in order to pose as a weirdboy.
>>20121915Since Fizzgutz da Klerik thinks he's a wierdboy, and the wierdgrotz never get acknowledged for their psyker acts would it be safe to assume that they are in close proximity constantly/by chance? Or is there no relation between them?
>>20122074>The title probably changes as needed.This also fits with the Scraplootas/our inability to agree on a single fucking name.
>>20122181One earlier incarnation had him deciding they were lucky and keeping them around.Perhaps this incarnation used them as his minions?One to carry the book when he isnt using it, some others for orky incense (probably just something flammable) etc etc
>>20122181Fizzgutz is the tribes only runt herder and acts as "Da speeratool leedur of Boris", spending most of his time aboard the Titan disciplining grots with his name-changing book he can't read and spreading the Word of Gork. He also has a weirdgrot lashed to a stick he uses as a staff, so he always is surrounded by some form of psychic energies. I figure the three-grots-as-one weirdboy would be someone else entirely unrelated. Maybe they decided the outside world was less dangerous than the cutthroat gretchin bureaucracy contained within Boris? And since their only "weirdboy" spends most of his time in the titan and they have few enough boys as it is, the Scraplootas don't really care that Skinnybrain (name pending) is so skinny.
>>20122253His predecessor knew their weirdness and abused it, being a kunnin ork. He died due to a freak warpsplosion the grots survived, his protege, the current klerik didn't know their significance beyond lucky. They are so lucky he's suddenly weird without the madness. Aside from him being Odd, he doesn't show the same head exploding tendances of other weirdboys. Truly he is blessed with lucky grotz.
I just realized we haven't touched the Kommandoz.Ded sneaky, dey is.
>>20122307Dats how sneaky dey are. We dint fink of em.
>>20122315What if they aren't there? What if the Warboss just says they're there to intimidate enemies. He says that they're so sneaky that no one can see them ever.
Recap time/Scraploota Rollcall Who we've got so farWarboss Urtylug "Titanloota" DursnikBig Mek Tinka ZizzbitzBoris da TitanFizzgutz da KlerikPotential Boys:Skinnybrain da Threegrot WeirdboyGrotchucka da Grot GitDokta Grotapus da Mad Dok(?)Also what >>20122307 said. We need some sneakyboys.
>>20122355And I forgot to list Blue. Now I feel right silly, seeing as how she started this whole thing.
>>20122333Klearly, ladz, wot we are dealin' wif 'ere. Are purple kommandos. We iz in a whole 'eap o trouble. Or da other gitz are. Whoz side are dey on anyway?
>>20122307>>20122315>>20122333Or maybe de iz so sneaky cause de gots a wierd grot of dere own dat they use ta make us ferget bout dem...Er... What waz I talkin bouts again?
>>20122355If Skinnybrain does make it, I say change his name to Threegrot. Why? Cuz e'z weirder den three weirdgrots put together! Don't know why dat joke always makes him so nervous, though.
>>20122355>Skinnybrain da Threegrot WeirdboyKeeper.>>20122333That's a little too far into silly season.>>20122372Think of it as misdirection. There's a Titan coming this way with multiple railguns welded on it. It's spewing gretchin like fleas off a wet dog. Now, are you going to pay attention to that ONE Ork ducking in behind a building, waiting to gut you? They really don't even need to be all that sneaky.Alternately, they're the chief lootaz. While everyone's paying attention to the titan, they're nicking everything that's not nailed down, and using their chopper to break loose anything that is.
>>20122390Dis is THREE GROT, AWOOOO! Comin' to ya boyz live from Brois Da Titan.ThreeGrot has to be the DJ/News ork.
>>20122426But Boris already has a tyranny over the PA system. Besides, wouldn't Threesquig be closer to Threedog than Threegrot?>>20122307I figured the Swashkrumpas and Stormboys would act as kommandoz, hitting all the anti armor weaponry before they can react to a fucking titan showing up in the middle of their city. Maybe it works more like:1. Deploy Sabotage Kommandos2. Deploy Boris3. Deploy swashkrumpas, stormboyz, and metric fucktons of grots4. WAAAAGH
>>20122422How so? They already have dwindling numbers of men. It's not too far fetched for a Warboss to say he has this massive force of sneaky orkz running around.
>>20122426>>20122484I think it's a good idea.a grot DJ who takes over the PA while Boris is asleep or distracted and blasts music over the vox, annoying the fuck out of all the other orks>DJ THREEGROT HERE, UP NEXT WE GOTS DA LATEST ALBUM FRUM DA NOISE MAHREENS, AND DEN'... ACK, OW, FFF->BORIS IS BACK, SORRY ABOUT DAT'
>>20122625It stands to reason that the boys they do have would be sneakier, since they have to fight with fewer numbers. Though I could see the Boss grossly exaggerating how many kommandos they do have. Like, say they had about a hundred kommandos at any given time, the Boss would boast WE GOT A MILLION SNEAKYBOYZ HIDDEN IN DIS ERE TITAN AND COULD KRUMP YA BLIND DA MOMENT I CARE ENUFF TA DO IT, SO DON MAKE ME ANGRY
Suggestion: Idiotic Martial Artist Ork who wears "DESE WEIRD ROUND LUCKY GUBBINS", fights "Honorably" (POWER KLAW TA' FIST, JUS' LIKE GORK AN MORK INTENDED, IS DA ORKIEST WAY) and follows superstitions odd even by orky standards.I dunno fuck I just wanted to draw a martial artist Ork have fun with it.
>>20123129Grats, you just drew and partially described a Blademaster from WC3.
>>20122355Don't forget Blue. Without her, we wouldn't have made the rest of the bunch.
>>20123166I can honestly say I have never played that game.I don't...really play vidya.Period.
>>20121669Nah, ya git, da stuff about Blue is Blue. Blue can't be gold, ya stupid grot!Now stop muckin' about!
We need an Ork arch rival and an arch rival from another race.For the Ork arch rival I'm thinking a freebooter Kaptain whose ship was was shot down and some how landed on a titan or other large warmachine. The Orks quickly swarmed inside and now they have a large pirate ship with legs.The Kaptain himself could be the opposite of Boris. Loud abd brutish even by Ork standard without any of da klass and elokwence of Boris. Their entire situations are different as well. While Boris has to rely on quick strikes with hit-and-runs, the Kaptain has a large number of boys and plenty of dakka so prefers the traditional forward assault. Their well equipped status comes from the fact that they were shot down during their invasion.
>>20123221>>20123170Let's see... Where did Blue come from? Are there Tau on the planet they are currently on? If so the other Arch-Rival could be a Tau commander that is constantly trying to outwit Boris. Making him or her different enough from the Kaptain.
>>20123191Samurai orks are a fairly common thing, so it's easily possible. Either way, I like the idea of this tribe being populated mainly by retardedly insane orks and grots so sociopathic, powerhungry, and conniving they'd make a Dark Eldar go even more pale with fright. >>20123221>Mecha Animes: Now with orks!Fund it
>>20123221>>20123259So if this planet has unusual and extra-conniving orks, then the invading Kaptain and his boyz are more so normal orks and seek to krump the wierdies and then set off on his WAAAAGH.I'm honestly picturing the Kaptain as something more like Lord Blath from Pirates of Dark Water.
>>20123221Isn't their main rival Tau? Crisis suits vs Boris sounds like fun times to me. Not to say an ork rival wouldn't be fun eitherI figure with them being a relatively small tribe and a freebooter tribe at that (not to mention the fucking titan), they're mostly on good terms with other orks, being hired to supplement bigger armies with Boris and their kommandos and in turn the Scraplootas ransack the battlefield during the fight and get first dibs at the loot. Of course, their unconventional tactics, combined with their exceptionally unconventional orks (A blue grot?! Now you'z jus mukkin about!) would probably net them more than a few enemies due to their unorkiness.
>>20123254Blue came from a Tau colony world they sacked. Whether or not that's their current world is still up to debate.
Mega armour is looted battlesuits, grots fly on drones-skimmers, Warboss is covered in kustom blastas/Railguns. Rival orks be fucked.
To expand on Grotchucka from up here >>20122033I think it would be great if he actually liked his gretchins and took care of them outside of battle, making sure they get first dibs at food and loot, not letting any other orks kick or boss them around. In fact, the only reason he chucks them into a crowd of enemies is he thinks they like it. After all, where else would an ork want to be than in the thick of it all? Besides, they keep on runnin back to him, so clearly they're just looking for a second go at it, one he happily obliges in.
>>20123747He is secretly a giant grot.
>>20123259That's been done, It's called Megas XLR
>>20123841Now you'z jus mukkin aboutGrots don't like to fight, right? Or are they just scared of things bigger than them, which is everything? Either way, I figured he was just a git that likes grots the same way Flash Gits like their Flash. He's just mindlessly happy taking care of them and chucking them into battle.>>20123892>Replace Kiva with Blue>Replace Coop with Boris>Replace Jamie with a grotHoly shit.
Orkived for da futcha!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/20120029/
>>20123254Ooh, this could go well. I imagine this Tau task force to be something kinda like the Roman garrisons in Asterix, with their commander being kinda like Col. Klink (in that he has a bumbling companion). They're tasked with the destruction of the Ork tribe, while also rescuing the Tau civilian caught in it (Blue). Of course, them being the Romans to Scraplootas' Gaul, they always get their asses kicked.How bout that? Good enough of an idea?
>>20125132>Army of smaller but more advanced mechs piloted by an imperialistic alien race face off against a bumbling but tech savvy idiot and his colorful companions in a bigger and more powerful but scrounged together mech as they bodyslam their way across the starsWell shit, we just reinvented Megas XLR
>>20125132This sounds good. And he's always convinced that Blue really wants to come back to the Tau, but she keeps escaping him.
Someone should update one or both of the 1d4chan pages with the new info. I would do it but I can't into wikis
>>20125291Well, now we need the name of this task force, and the commander and his/her aide's names as well.Inb4 Shas'o K'link
>>20125132Hello IG.This brings up a good question. Have we decided whether or not they were staying on the planet after taking Blue/T'ork in?
>>20125485That could be their main planet, but I imagine that they get around a bit, being Freebooterz and all.
is their a sect generator for the tau? if so lets start one up and pump out the asshats
>>20125485>>20125291If they move around in a small ship it could be like the hunt for the Red Orktober
Will the Scraplootas be part of the 13th Black Crusade along with the Nightmares, Inductors and Angry Marines?
>>20125625I really hope so...
>>20125655>>20125625If I'd have gotten into Epic 40k sooner a conversion of a Titan into the scraplootah stompah would have been awesome...
>>20125625SCRAPLOOTAS GO WHERE DEY PLEEZESo probably. I don't see them missing a chance to pay back dem spikey umies and show them whose Titan is better.Oh Zog, Boris is gonna have a blast.
>>20125683What do the Scraplootah characters looks like? I know Blue is an Earth tribe tau and Threegrot are three grots standing ontop of each other in a coat, but what do the others looks like?
>>20125716Boss Titanloota has a mohawk, I know that much.
>>20125724He has a warklaw too.
>>20125716All I know is that they are pale yellow themselves. It was the result in rolling randomly. We haven't really discussed much of their appearance.
>>20125716Would Boris, in his madness, put on his hairsquigs on the wrong part of his head, thus having a massive beard?
>>20125655>>20125683As GM of the Eye of /tg/, i cordially invite the Scraplootas to the biggest Waaagh they will ever see. be there or be a bunch of pansy grots.
>>20125716Boris we never see, so we just need to properly orkify a Chaos Titan for him. I you do draw him, give him a bunch of cables sticking out of his head and stabbed into the titan in odd places around the control roomBig Mek Tinka...I don't know. People were considering giving them all a "looted tau" look where they had scraps of Tau bits on them. If you do go with that, I say give him the barrel of a tau rifle for a peg leg, preferrably somehow still functional in some form.Give the Titan Bureaucracy Gretchins a very clean cut look, like Nazis or USSR commanders or something. Make them look conniving and cutthroat as fuck, you know?Fizzgutz da Klerik found a dirty old Chaos Priest(?)/regular Priest robe as well as a book and made them both orky. I don't know if that's a thing or not and can't remember the direct specifics for the life of me.Any ideas for the rest?
>>20125809YER ON YA LOUSY GIT! WE'Z DED ARD AN READY TA FITE! YOU KANT STOP US, WE'Z GOT DA LUCKIEST GROT IN DA WHOLE YOO-NEE-VERSS!
>>20125818We need to update the wiki, most definitely.
>>20125818>give him the barrel of a tau rifle for a peg leg, preferrably somehow still functional in some formYou mean like the Scottsman from Samurai Jack?
>>20125818Yer forgettin' da Kaptain, ya git! Urtylug "Titanloota" Dursnik.
>>20125853Or that stripper from Planet Terror. I figure the Scraplootas are already pretty ridiculous in the good way, so why not roll with it.>>20125878I figured the picture of him we got already was perfect. Maybe give him a chaincutlass as well since he loves Swashkrumin so much.
>>20125903We already have art of him?
>>20126119http://1d4chan.org/wiki/ScraplootasLook into Blue's page, she's sitting on his shoulder. And a few other concepts in her image bin area as well.
>>20126138I thought that was Big Mek Tinka Zizzbitz, looking at the fluff.
>>20126189Yeah, it would be.
I've been thinking about getting into 40k, and playing Orks, and if I did, I swear I would have to make a force of Scraplootas.
If someone gives me a list of all the new characters/additions to the existing characters, I'll throw it into the wiki.Also, has there been any more drawfaggotry? Particularly for Blue, as I still love Blue.
>>20126260Well now I feel retarded. I must have stuck with the really old version of her... Or I'm full of it, probably more likely. Then where do we have pictures of him? I figured he might be one of the spare imaged in her image area...
>>20126312See the picture right above your post.Given that Blue's mentor (mentork?) has been agreed to be the Big Mek Tinka Zizzbitz, it makes sense that she'd been on his shoulders rather than anyone else's.
>>20126306I am, was thinking of making a pic with Blue holding mr squig and looking up innocently, also I decided to work on the Ork clan symbol because why not?
>>20126189Derp, I'm fucking retarded. That IS Zizzbitz. Now I want to give either the Boss or Boris a helmet and hairstyle that looks like they were trying to emulate the Titan. Think about it, that thing has to be, like, the physical manifestation of Gork AND Mork to these guys. Especially since they by all rights shouldn't even really have weaponry of that magnitude given their relatively small fighting force.
>>20125768Hello Indonesian Gentleman, may I interest you in resuming Robotnik Quest? Do you have a line we can coordinate privately? Or hell just head to #swq on rizon, thanks.
A few ideas I had over the night and only just found written down.Blue's little squig copta drone thing is in a constant state of upgrading and tinkering, sometimes it will have spiky bits thrown all over it, sometimes it gets more dakka, sometimes it has nothing because squig has smashed into so many things that all the bits came offBlue is always making and trying different gear for herself as well, this extends to her having ( but not limited to ) power stompas ( shoes for kicking grots with ) an iron gob, a helmet with horns that are actually dakka, her old overalls that she orkified with gubbinz, a non working rokkit pack that she uses to store tools and scrap in and her own trukk that is more a trike or quad bike in size and is constantly being nicked by the grots because it is the only vehicle small enough for them to drive they invariably crash it so it also is constantly being worked on, upgraded and changed since she rebuilds it from whatever scrap Mek has lying about that fits.
>>20126465I love it. Especially the Tork Trakk. I'm imagining a little orky ATV That's painted red with ale yellow flames. And a little blue Tau emblem painted under the Scraploota's emblem. She doesnt really remember the significance of it, but she remembers seeing it a lot in her old rok and even though that place was fulla panzees and not orky in da slightest, the memories are still nice.
>>20126507I actually thought that the paint job could change as often as it gets wrecked so it goes through red, yellow, blue ( luckier so hopefully it does get stolen and wrecked ), purple ( sneakier so grots don't see it to nick it ) etc
>>20126547Well yeah, that would obviously be only one incarnation. One variant might have caterpillar treads, one would basically be one of those motorized metal platform welded on top of four shield drones, and so on. So long as we keep a recognizable body frame and recognizable companions, Blue and her accoutrements can themselves be really aesthetically malleable.
>>20126448Well, I'd run it if I haven't got the Primordial Evo threads to manage and coordinate in between my work.But, feel free to run with the idea if you want. I'll be dropping in shortly.
>>20126576>>20126547>>20126507>>20126465I like it. By quadbike, does this mean to bikes rigged together into a sort of four-wheeler? Either way, sidecar for Mr. Squig is a must.
>>20125818Probably not what you meant, but when I saw "Bureaucracy Gretchins" this is what came right to mind.
>>20126705Are you by chance the one who posted the pictures last night with the similar style's for Blue? I liked your style, if you could come up with some more.
>>20126705>Breaking Bad: Boris EditionHoly shit, these guys just keep getting more and more amazing.
>>20126726I'm working on it. Doing 40k art is relatively new for me and I'm still mucking about with how to do armor right and shit.
>>20126697Mr. Squig has a Kopta.
>>20126697Probably both. The thing changes more often than the name of Fizzgutz's book.>>20126765>the sidecar has a slot specially built for his dronekota
>>20126594Oops, attention slipped. I'm up.
Just a quick little doodle of Blue for the pile
>>20126866Paint the shoulderpad yellow! Other than that, it's perfect!Also, dawwww.
>>20126915Excellent! Now she's showin her Scraploota pride!
>>20126697yeah she could have a quad bike, a half track, whatever.the point is that it gets smashed quite often and she keeps rebuilding it
I like the idea that Fizzgutz himself can't remember what his book is called, and he changes it every time he refers to it.
>>20127017Dis ere's Da Gud Book, so it has whateva name iz best at da time, ya hear me?
>>20127104We's da best at krumpin'; dis I knoCuz da Gud Buk tellz me so
Before I call it night, here's one more fun little picture for ya. My money's on the little blue one.
>>20127741That's awesomeNow we need the follow up with blue running like hell with the angry marine chasing her with Mek chasing the angry marine.
>>20127780Cue the Benny Hill theme
>>20127821>>20127780And squig flying around them
>>20127741Well fucking done. I love every one of these boys we've made up tonight, gentlemen.
>>20127889I'll pump out a sketch of the Mek and the Warboss once my brain isn't being kept awake by coffee and cough syrup. I assume threads like this are gonna be kicking around for a while.
Okay so now there is a Ork Tau girl and a Necron Tau girlWhich one of them is going to get a Tau girl next?
>>20127990Jokaero tau girl
>>20128006Book of the Jungle style
I hope it's not too late in this thread to post a little writefaggotry.“Whut’z an Ork?”Urtylug passes a grimy hand through his equally grimy mohawk, dusting the area with green particles. “Whut da zog iz dat suppose ta mean? An Ork iz an Ork. Datssit. Quit muckin’ about.”“UV COURSE we know whut an Ork iz! An Ork iz not a grot! An’ we know dat ‘cause we iz an Ork uv course.” Threegrot sways in that weird way he always does, deflecting the question like he always does. “I-I mean, dat’s ‘cause I iz an Ork! Not we.”“As da gud book sayz, furst, Gork an’ Mork made a buncha stuff, den a buncha udda stuff, and den made a whole load uv zog know wut so deir chozen onez had plenty ta loot and krump and stomp, so dey ken fight an’ win all day. And deir chozen onez will be da Orks, da biggest an’ da strongest.”Fizzgutz has his book open and fingers tracing the lines of text, but he doesn’t look down once.“Iz as simple as dat. An Ork iz a chozen one uv Gork an’ Mork.”“AN ORK IZ DA BIGGEST AN’ DA STRONGEST AN’ DA GREENEST AN’ DA TUFFEST AN’ DA MIGHTEST FING DERE IZ.”Boris booms overhead and gestures in a jerky manner, the railguns on his upraised arms misfire a little.“AN ORK IZ NO HUMIE, NO PANSYBOY, NO POINTY ‘EADED GIT. WE IZ PROUD AN’ STRONG AN’ GREEN—““But Boris, you iz red an’ yellow alluva.”“SHUT UP YE GROT. I IZ GREEN AS MORK AND GORK DEMSELVEZ ON DA INSIDE.”
>>20128133“Whut’z dis? Blue iz muckin’ about? Dat ain’t da Blue I know!” Tinka slaps my back none too lightly, knocking me over from where I’m sitting. “Git back ta work before I krump ya.”“Hey, Tinka, what’s an Ork to you?” I say as I pick myself up.“Not like you ta ask alla dese filsoff- filly- fillis- big kwesshuns neither. Ya look like a grot made off wid ya fav’rite shoota. Sumfin’ da madder?”It may just be my imagination, but the Big Mek has a slight look of concern. I shake my head, “It’s nothing, I guess I just wasn’t feeling very Orky.”“Now don’t say dat, Blue. You iz plenty Orky.”“Well, I’m not very green, inside or out, I’m not big or tough, and I’m definitely not very strong. I’m a Tau. I’m like the opposite of an Ork. What am I even doing here?”Tinka shakes his head, “Soundz like some git got up onna wrong side uv da bedroll an’ got pissed on by a squig. Listen ‘ere.” He sits down next to me and puts an hand on my shoulder. “An Ork ain’t just about bein’ big an’ strong an’ green an’ winnin’ an’ fightin’. Dose fings iz part uv it, yes, but da most important fing uv bein’ an Ork iz in ‘ere.” He jabs a finger into my chest, “Can ya feel the Waaagh inside you? Does it speak ta ya an’ tell ya ‘ow to fight an’ build an’ add even more dakka?”“Yessir.”“Den gud. You’z an Ork.” He gets up. “If dat part iz dere, I got no doutz about yer Orkiness.”“Is that really it?”“Da Waaagh is whut keepz da Orks tagedder. Da Waaagh iz whut drivez Orks ta fight an’ loot an’ krump. An’ Orks push da Waaagh fo’ward so it’z a cycle. If ya really got da Waaagh inside ya, yer as Orky as a Warboss I’d say.”
>>20128146I vaguely remember someone else saying similar things, something about gue’vesa, and how they were to be treated with respect because they also served the greater good, or some nonsense like that. But that was different, the gue’vesa were not Tau and could never be considered Tau.But I am an Ork. And everyone else here is an Ork. Or a grot, but that’s besides the point. Maybe that’s why they had so much trouble articulating the difference between them and me. Because they didn’t see a difference.“Now, whut’s da Waaagh sayin’ ta ya now, Blue?”“That I should stop muckin’ around.” I get up and brush off my overalls. I suddenly remember there’s a Power Klaw that I wanted to work on.“Dat’s my Blue. Go get ‘em.”
Why have I not seen this before?I'mma have fun with this.
>>20126915I absolutely love that.
>>20128133>>20128146>>20128150D'aww.That's really great.Scraplootas are fast becoming my favourite Orks.
>>20128133Small note: I think Tinka is the one with the mohawk. Doesn't mean boss can't have one too, I'm just saying.
Right, I'll edit the wiki in a little bit, what things are there that desperately need adding?
>>20128133>>20128146>>20128150D'awww. Scraplootaz are da best orks. Ded ard on da outside, but they mean well.
>>20128133>>20128146>>20128150>you will never feel the power of the WAAAGH welling up inside you>sadgrot.gif
>>20128450Threegrot and Fizzgutz da Klerik, maybe even "The Titanic Grot Bearaucracy" as a notable character. Most importantly adding in that story under Blue's page.
Here's the Tau task force. Shas'El K'Lem P'rer and his bodyguard, Shas'Vre Pan'zah.Pan'zah is always the witty one, compared to the stoic K'Lem.
>>20128469You can if just beleeve in it, ya git. Stopping mukkin about [lolspoilers]wif mah heart[/lolspoilers]
>>20128133>>20128146>>20128150I love the way it gives you it acts an in-character biography of all the Scraplootas
>>20128475>Most importantly adding in that story under Blue's page.Blue's page is getting to be a bit of a clusterfuck, as it's WAY too long.How about I throw it under the Scraplootas page?Regardless, I'm off to work on the wiki.
>>20128569Works for me. Both pages really need some smoothing out at some point, though.
>>20128588CONTROVERSIAL THING: I'm considering getting rid of the "greentext stories" on Blue's page. The character is fleshed out enough not to need them any more, I feel.
>>20128588I still feel like both pages need some lore, and more importantly drawfaggotry. Blue's needs editing with the stories as I am sure they were just copy/pasted willy nilly with just a space between them.. Some cleaning would be nice. Not trimming but... Cleaning.
>>20128599I agree. I'd say link the archived threads and suggest for readers to check them out if they feel like getting ideas for write or drawfaggotry about Blue and the Scraplootas, but they don't need to be clogging the page itself.
Removed the greentext, people are free to add new stuff in though. I'm about to update with a couple more pictures.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Blue
If nothing else, I've learned a lot about wikis lately.
>>20128469Every human has a little WAAGHH in their hearts.Ever felt the burning hate for that asshole colleague at work?Ever felt the desire to let it all lose and wage a killing spree of epic proportions on the local populace?Ever 'broke your cool' and went to town on the shit nearest to you?That is a bit of the WAAAAGHH in you. Its in all of us, only that its chained down by logiv, tradition and morality
So, Fizzgutz Da Clerik, what did we decide was his origin?Where did he get the book, and when did he start being a "clerik"?
>>20128739He saw a weirdboy in a coat turn into three grots and catch on fire, thus deciding that he was a weirdboy and the book he was gnawing on was the religious text of Gork himself and it imbued him with mystical powers.
>>20128748I'll address Threegrot first then.
Do all three of the grots in threegrot have psychic powers?
>>20128769And did they know about the power before teaming up, or after?
>>20128769>>20128772I never really thought of it. I'm pretty sure all three are weirdgrots, and I think we decided they have a disproportionate number of weirdgrots and weirdsquigs due to the exposure to a Chaos Titan, so it would stand to reason weirdgrots aren't that rare. So they probably knew about each other ahead of time when they decided to band together.
RIGHThttp://1d4chan.org/wiki/ScraplootasI upgraded it.We need some fanart of Warboss "Titanlooter" Dursnik and Big Mek Tinka Zizzbitz though.
I love how a wat do thread has spawned one of the greatest Ork tribes in recent memory.
question, what class of titan is boris was it just a warhound or a warlord or are we going ridiculous with a imperator?
>>20128937Wat do threads often do that. I regularly open wat do threads in hopes of something creative and hilarious coming out of it.
>>20128982I don't think it's been considered really.
>>20128982whats the difference between them?
>>20128464On the ScrapLootaz' camaraderie:I can't seem to shake this mental image:Listen to this, but imagine it's about the ScrapLootaz and Blue instead.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaQEuJxaSR0(yeah the sound quality sucks but it was the best I could find)I don't know why, but it just /works/.
>>20129022awh>>20129033basically the warhound goes out ahead of the rest of the titans they sometimes hunt in packs to bring down warlords but are mostly used to scout and set up ambushes. they are the smallest then you have the warlords they're larger and can take and deal moar damage, lots more dakka then warhounds. impereators are fucking massive dudes with castle towers for shoulders, rare as shit and have the most dakka. that's a very brief and slightly inaccurate description.
>>20129041Hah.I like that.
>>20129071I would imagine it would be a Warlord or Imperator then, as it's supposed to be huge enough to have a functioning Gretchin society inside it.
>>20129071Imperator and Warlord can suck a dick. Reaver master race reporting in. Gut reactor is inferior. Warhound, you's okay.
>>20129103fuck yeah i forgot about them. my money goes to reaver
>>20129115What's the reaver like for size/dakka?
Green Marine: blue with boob groping action/ possibly mega milk post and the title "how about these flash bitz"My work here is done. /thread/
>>20129117Smaller than a warlord, 3 weapon hardpoints (2 arm, 1 carapace), though because warlords often have a melee weapon and a single shot titan sized missile (thus meaning only 2 actual shooty weapons), they often end up the gunline when running a heap of titans in epic.
>>20129118Oi. You.Cut dat out.
>>20129117reaver fits in between warlord and warhoundhttp://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Reaver_Battle_Titan#.UBkSPaMjHuY
reaver only has 16 crew its gona need to be bigger
>>20129118Needs dakka. Lots and lots of in.
>>20129159Considering the need for dakka and living space, I say to hell with the rarity, we should risk a little special snowflake and give 'em an Imperator.
>>20129167Yeah, plus with however damaged it's got with a chunk of orks and grots living in it, I doubt it will be in perfect condition
>>20129167I was talking about Blue pinups.Dakka all over superheavy Ork units is a given.
yeah agreed, now we need backstory and a name for it pre orkifacation
>>20129194especially if it's going to be anything big... Things like that tend to be tracked a little bit, with history and whatnot.
>>20129194I'm struggling with the faux latin, but something about being invincable appeals to me.
>>20129199well titans belong to legions theres a list of known chaos titans on the 40klex but i say fuck it lets make our own. first we need a legion.
>>20129205what about immortalis viresimmortal might, i tried invincible but didnt work
I say we make it a warlord. Something about them stealing an Imperator with nothing but grots is just a bit too far fetched.also working on some drawfaggotry. Should have a comic about Boris done some time after we're done fleshing him out
Omnia vincit vires
As a little question, does the Titan Bureacracy have a king/emperor, or a parliament?I'd love to see the throne room/parliament room on the inside of the Titan.
>>20129271I was thinking the same thing... Time to flesh this baby out, though.
>>20129271yeah but i can't see how the bureaucracy will fit in a warlord. >>20129277 vae victis is good.
>>20129277I like that.
>>20129271If it makes you feel better, the Imperator is actually the most vulnerable to capture of all the titans, because its lower legs are large bastions holding troops intended to defend the titan from infantry attack. If the grots happened along after an ork warband and the titan defence force had finished murdering each other, they've got themselves a ride.
>>20129313this, this might actually work.
>>20129286well grots are pretty shrimy, but is is hard to see enough of them living in there for a functioning society without it getting reeaaaalllly cramped
are grots actually clever enough for a bureaucracy
>>20129313this works.So know we know what kind of titan Boris is, and how it was even possible for them to steal it. I say during a WHAAAAARRG they sent in all they're boys in the initial raid of the titan. The raid ended in the death of most of their boys but the partial success was still enough for the metric fucktonn of grots they sent in after to break the defenses and overrun the titan.Sure the Scraplootas lost most of their boys in the process of taking the thing but in their minds it was worth it.
Idea:Would it be likely for entire factions, economies and branches of the Gorkan Morkan faith in the Grot Bureaucracy?Grots manning the upper parts/place of importance in the Titan, where they are constantly exposed to writings of the Omnissiah, starts to believe that the Omnissiah is a chosen Mekboy of Gork and Mork Grots of the torso, being at the nexus of the Titan, forms a primitve economy of exchange of flashy bits, shiny spare parts, ,choppas dakkas and shootas.Arm Grots starts to believe in superioty in excessive firepower, being so used to manning the massive guns of the arms. They become very fixated in oversized and over-powered weapons, despite its impracticality.Just some ideas
Makes a lot of sense.
>>20129375that was meant for >>20129362
>>20129362i say we live up to the name scraplootasthere was a giant battle victis vae suffered a shiton of damage and whilst affecting repairs the scraplootas stormed it and borris was born
>>20129372thats... actually a good idea it gives boris as a whole more personality.
>>20129372I like that.The body parts are all sectors, and each has a representative in the council in the head of the Titan, with one president in ultimate control.
>>20129372looks like we're gonna need another thread just for Borisian social structure.
>>20129437Let's keep it to these threads.Hold on while I do a basic write-up of how I believe Boris works.
>>20129411well they all are below Boris the pilot/titan and Boris is below titanloota
>>20129362I like it. It explains what happened to all out boys emphasizes the sheer number of grots we have and sort of makes the theft of an Imperator seem a little more viable for grots. Although >>20129379 does have merit in the fact that it lives up to the name and is equally if not more plausible... although not as awesome>>20129372Love it. Love everything about it. each section of the titan can act as its own sovereignty with a unique social structure and representative in the head
>>20129362works with the shit written on the scarplootas 1d4chan page too
>>20129372>And I will form the head>of State
>>20129469Whoops, meant to quote>>20129411
>>20129372>>20129379>>20129411>>20129461On top of all of this, would there be any orky modification to any of the decks or compartments within the Titan to house various intra-cultural Borocracies? Such as a mechanics bay and hanger for production and whatnot.
>>20129478Where would they be and how would those impact it, is what I meant predominantly.
>>20129466So is now canon? Great, now we just need some write fags to make it into something a bit more fancy and we can throw it up on the wiki
Internal layout of an imperator for those that are interested.To lazy to screenshot and stitch them together, so just linking to the pdfs.http://www.netepic.org/uploads/3/4/2/0/3420807/imperator_location_template_1.jpghttp://www.netepic.org/uploads/3/4/2/0/3420807/imperator_location_template_2.jpg
More Ideas:Stoompas, one of the factions of the legs, sees the titan as the ultimate form of stomppin, and follows suit by wearing/nailing bits and flash on their feet and legs. Oh, a personalized warcry for each sector?Legs: WE IZ DA STOMPIESTArms: NEVAR ENUFF DAKKA>>20129478Manufacturing will have to be clomped at the body or hanging off the back, since there arent any space left.>Warbike manufacturing plant at titan's ass>Imperium's face when they see Boris shit warbikes
>>20129496Oops, jpg's, not pdf, still to lazy to make one image though.
HOW I BELIEVE THE INSIDE OF BORIS WOULD WORK:The feet and lower legs form sort of hub areas. Grots come in and out, are signed in, assigned to different areas, there are basic market stalls and entertainment, casinos and the like. There is no particular culture to speak of, though the right foot is more shop-oriented, and the left more entertainment based.Heading up the legs, we hit industrial areas, controlling joints and things in the area. Tends to be filled with lower level workers, and is a usual starting place for Grots, though some stay there, preferring its easy lifestyle to other areas.Reaching the lower body/crotch area, we hit the first bit of proper industry. Bullets are made, parts are repaired, new parts are made. There are actually a few different factory areas, each run by an enterprising capitalist Grot. The parts are distributed throughout by a complicated series of elevators.As we head up to the heavily armoured chest, we reach the heart of the Titan: the Bureaucracy. The bureacracy is made up of many different offices, each with specialised areas of charge, distributing parts, allocating jobs, appeasing the different areas, etc. This is arguably the most important part of the Titan.Next, we hit the arms. The two arms actually have a bitter rivalry, as the left arm has a lot of saws, chainsaws and choppers, whereas the right arm has a lot of guns, artillery and shooters. This has led to two factions, the Shootists and the Choppists. CONT NEXT POST
>>20129517Each arm does their jobs more than adequately, and when Boris moves, the arms obey, but they still feel hatred towards the other side. The arms work in an interesting way, due to their constant state of movement. Instead of using a traditional floor system, the grots move around with a complex set of wires and harnesses, attaching themselves to different wires when the arms are up, down and horizontal. The more important grots, foremen and the like, have become known as "swingees", from their ability to quickly travel around the arms using the wires.Finally, there is the head. The head has a council, with a representative from each area of the Titan. Most of the tension comes from the two arms and their bitter rivalry, but it is unusual that any council members come to blows. There is also an elected president, who is in charge of making the ultimate decisions. Given its nature, the head of the titan has become known to the Grots as "the 'ed of state", the joke lost on them all. The head is also known for being well kept, clean, and respected. The council chambers are a sight to be seen.Needless to say, Boris remains completely oblivious to ALL of this.
>>20129527>>20129517All of this give me a Osmosis Johnes vibe
>>20129527>>20129517this works, this works well.
New thread, by the way:>>20129547>>20129547>>20129547This one is autosaging.
>>20129167I'm with it being on the heavier side. Remember, the tribe itself is pretty underpowered with the titan being the one reason they haven't been wiped out.>>20129271>>20129313Remember also that we USED to have more boys, they just all died from capturing the Titan and we never quite recovered.
>>20129372Those closest to the control room should consider themselves the Chosen Ones of Boris and constantly try to impose their theocratic cult on the rest of the Bureaucracy.
