If it ain't human, and it ain't from the warp, then it must be Xenos.

There is very little change between the two versions beyond organizing the thoughts furhter so it makes sense logically, and also the addition of the skill level of the Grot commander and grot driver effecting who can move first/last, who shoots first/last. etc. Which also make sense.

You asked this on the showcase, and I answered it there. No bigger than a Rhino, ideally deff-dread or similar.

Wow! :shock: This is very impressive! Bravo to everyone who participated into making this. This makes me want to make sime grot tanks right now. Anyway, I found the whole thing so amazing, so I figured to make a pdf format with all the rules and fluff inside, I corrected a few spelling mistakes and just made stuff look tidier. If you want to check it out, here it is:

So far:

Ogre Kingdoms: planning

Orks: about 7000 points
