First Rebel Grot Armored Sentinel Painted!

Hello all,

After a bit of a lull I’ve recently started working to finish my Rebel Grot Armored Sentinel squadron.  So far I’ve finished one and am making decent progress on the other two.  Here’s the one I’ve finished:

I bought three of these on ebay and started working on them almost two years ago.  After that much time it’s nice to finally be nearing completion.  I made the armored face plates removable so that I can field them as Scout Sentinels if I want to.  Even if I rarely use them as scouts it it nice to have that option.  So far I only have autocannons for their main armament but I am planning to make some missile launchers and maybe lascannons too.  I also have hunter-killer missiles for when I have some extra points and want to add a little punch to their first volley.   I covered the initial restoration and basing, armor modifications, and weapon construction in previous posts so you can see how they were built if you’re interested.  There’s also an article about how I base-coated these and my other vehicles using an airbrush.

There is still fair amount of work left on the other two but I’m continuing to plug away at them.  Of course, the next couple of weeks are looking very busy thanks to the holidays.  I’ll probably get them finished in early January.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures, comments and questions are always welcome.  Thanks for looking!

  • This hits all my happy bones. Well done!

    • So it takes Orky stuff to get a comment out of you these days? I see how it is ;)

      • Faeit’s blog roll is back up, so will probably see me back again :)

        • LOL!

          You like and retweet on Twitter, so you’re telling me you don’t visit the article too unless it comes from Faeit? Silly Orks.

          • I click less if it is on twitter, because generally I’m tweeting via mobile. So then I tend to forget until later. With the blog roll, I open each site, and read what is new.

            • Alright, alright. I’ll stop busting your balls now :)

    • I’m glad you like it! I’ve always liked the look of Ork looted Imperial vehicles and Rebel Grots are a perfect way to play with that aesthetic. For me it’s fun on a lot of different levels.

  • Great job. I really like the white on the extra armor to make it pop against the grey.

    • Thanks! Considering the Imperial Death Head Fetish I’m surprised all Sentinels aren’t just walking skulls :P

  • I always wanted a Grot army back in the days and started getting some smaller things for it but that must have been back in the 90s when Gorkamorka was released with the revolutionary Grots.

    I like the modifications you’ve made om the Sentinel and I’m looking forward too seeing more.

    • Thanks!

      Gorkamorka is what first got me interested in Rebel Grots too! I picked up the Red Gobbo and Head Honcho models but never actually found anyone else to play it with. I could never find a good enough way to incorporate them into my Ork army. Then I came across the idea of using the Guard codex to represent an army of Rebel Grots and decided that was the way to go!

      I’ve been inactive for a while but I made a lot of progress on this army before I dropped out. If you’re interested in seeing the rest of the army you can search this blog for “Rebel Grot” to find my older articles.

        • Bah! You and your shortcuts…do it the hard way!

      • Cool I’ll look that up. We only played Gorkamorka a couple of times, but it was a pretty fun easygoing game.

        • It looked like a fun game but at the time most of my friends were into Necromunda and/or 40k already. So my Gorkamorka models were just assimilated into my Ork army. I still have the rule books so maybe I’ll find some recruits one day…

  • Groootttts! Nice work on the Walker, it’s a nice modification and works well

  • Nice to see a return to the Grots. We need some army pictures in the next article.

    • Good point, I have posted a lot of unit pics in the past but I’m overdue for an army shot. I guess I’ll have to fix that soon.

  • jack shrapnel

    Awesome job! I immediately began searching out your other posts for this army – that commissar is fantastic!

    • Thanks! The commissar is definitely one of my favorites. I don’t think I’ve run a single list without him since he was finished.
