Coven units - Grotesques and Wracks! Empty
PostSubject: Coven units - Grotesques and Wracks!   Coven units - Grotesques and Wracks! I_icon_minitimeThu Nov 20 2014, 21:19

Ahoy! Looking for some C&C from both modelling and painting perspectives on my new Grots I'm serving up, as well as painting for my Wracks.

I've only finished the first Grot ("finished" not meaning I can't edit if someone gives a good suggestion!) but will post pics of the others even though they're mainly in various stages of unfinished paint. But they're getting there. Converted from the ever popular Rat Ogres, obviously, but I tried giving each Grotesque a theme of sorts, and converting one part of their pose to make each unique. Also I shaved down the "hair" from the Rat Ogres, trying to make it look more like flakes or layers of heavy thick skin to fit the theme better. Did it work?
I have 4 of the old rat ogres, and 4.5 new ones from Island of Blood kit. Not sure how to set 'em up but I had the thought of keeping the models in separate units by type of model, since I tend to run them 4+babysitter to a raider, either one unit or the Grotesquerie formation.

Please let me know what you think and how I could improve!

My first finished model! Aberration with Scissorhand. Best part, there's already a story behind this one. After modelling but before being painted up, a match vs some Iron Hands SM that I have a batrep to somewhere on here, this Aberration cut the enemy warlord, a Librarian, in twain with rending snips. So I decided he needed a reward, and gave him a Librarian helmet on his base to show his victory!

The Shark, or wannabe Scourge? Had a thought to give this one some fledgeling wings of some kind, bony and obviously useless, to go with the adrenal vials like the scourge models. Don't know what or where to go for the wings though...

This one... maybe an Agoniser Aberration once I get my other 4 rat ogre models assembled? Or maybe not.

More pics will be posted as I go.
Edit: Apologies for the huge-ness and serious close-ups of the pics. No idea how to fix that.

Just made a list i am going to try out using the Coven book.  Your models would be a credit to my list!


Corpsethief Claw Detachment  (Freakish Spectacle, and Scout Special Rules)


650pts 5 Talos (Feel No Pain, TL Haywire Blaster)

Covenite Corerie Detachment (Freakish Spectacle special rule)

160pts Haemonculus (Scissorhand, Syndriq's Sump, Orbs of Despair, The Khaidesi Haemovores, Nightmare Doll)
Essentially, this guy gets 5 Poison(4+) Rending attacks on the charge and then D3 bonus attacks when outnumbered, plus D6 STR 3 AP - hits at Init 10 with an additional Pile in move.  He also gets 4+ FnP and ignores the first Instant Death wound he suffers.

140pts Urien Rakarth

190pts 4 Grotesques (Aberration W/Agonizer, Liquifier Gun)

60pts Raider (Aethersails)

190pts 4 Grotesques (Aberration W/Agonizer, Liquifier Gun)

60pts Raider (Aethersails)

120pts 7 Wracks (Acothyst w Flesh Gauntlet and Liquifier, 1 x Liquifier)

60pts Raider (Aethersails)

120pts 7 Wracks (Acothyst w Flesh Gauntlet and Liquifier, 1 x Liquifier)

60pts Raider (Aethersails)

120pts 7 Wracks (Acothyst w Flesh Gauntlet and Liquifier, 1 x Liquifier)

60pts Raider (Aethersails)

Dude, loving it! The new toys can make Haemies scary. Imagine how much damage he could do to a unit of Guard... drool.
And thanks for the compliment.
Urien and Haemy each go with a unit of Grots?
Also, those Liquifiers on the Aberrations or carried by a separate Grot?

Um. You're taking the Orbs of Despair? On purpose? As a thought, presuming you aren't actually taking them on purpose, those 25pts can give all 5 of your Raiders Dark Lances. Helps shore up your ranged AT issue a little with some first turn dakka.
Love to hear how it plays regardless!

Also, you get your paws on the new Wrack kit yet???

Yes that Haemonculus is an absolute blender.  He can basically "blast off" like a missile out of his unit and charge something separate from the grotesques he's travelling with.

and remember:  the haemonculus and Urien Turn the clockl faster so in turn 2, when they charge as one, it is effectively turn FOUR on the chart in the Coven book.  Whuuuuuuut.  But yes!  So they may NOT split off if the need arises.  The cool chart for powering up the Grotesques tempts me to take a unit of 5 and 3 because i can truck up with on, then join the other and have more grotesques up there that are super powered.

The Liquifier on the Grotesques is, i think, not on the aberration.

Orbs of Despair:  I definitely dont want Dark Lances.  Reason:  I expect to not fire ANYTHING turn one and turn two I expect to lose 2 of them at least, and POSSBILY three.  At that point, what will two lances do for me that is more impotant than two Disintegrator cannons?  The big boys and their claws should have the DEconstruction of the tanks WELL under way by that point.  In turn three ill want all the infantry killing power I can get.

I already owned 20 of them so I didn't need to buy any.  So no I have not.  but the fact that its plastic?  Amen!  putting them together and then KEEPING the Finecast together is ridiculous.
