Which Stargrave crew type for green, fungal life forms...?
« on: April 24, 2021, 11:33:15 PM »
Which Stargrave crew type, if any, would be the best fit for a crew of 40K-style Orks - Veterans?

Stargrave doesn't have crew types, that's more a Rogue Stars thing.  If you mean what would fit for your captain and first mate, pretty much anything should work.  Let's see:

Biomorph - might be a stretch, but if the guy's a mad dok (or a mad dok's pet project) or some kind of mutant it could work
Cyborg - spell it cybork and you're done
Mystic - weirdboy, obviously
Robotic Expert - big mek, be sure to call his charges tinboyz for old school cred
Rogue - some kind of sneaky git, maybe a kommando or loota boss
Psionicist - another flavor of weirdboy
Tekker - another flavor of big mek
Veteran - kind of the default warboss or nob background

As far as your soldiers go anything works.  Even ones like the hacker/codebreaker types could be flavored as junior meks or their grot assistants.  The "guard dogs" are squigs - or maybe unusually enthusiastic grots, since they're pretty weedy in combat but fast.

Thank you for the Ork refresher and suggestions!

What about small forms? The crew of the ship is completely made of grots?


No Armour = Bare heads
Light Armour = Helmets
Heavy Armour = Any metal chest plate (piece of junk, from bitz, green stuff, printed)
Combat Armour = Squig Armor or Killa Kans

For my Ork team, all the recruits and runners are Grots.

I've got a whole 30-ork mob of boyz with grot head swaps as "Zag's Pinheadz" - the product of a Mad Dok's (or maybe his assistant) and a loonie Runtherd who are bent on showing up Zodgrodd by producing "uber-grots" via head transplants and a regimen of squig-steroid injections.  The conversions look pretty good (and suitably ridiculous) and could make some good elite specialist figs for a Stargrave all-grot force if you wanted to go that route.  Bonus points if you can find a Red Gobbo mini to lead them.

Vive da Revolushun!

Red Gobbo - stl


It's funny. Will you show it?

I then adjust to the accomplice, he has a standard 40k orc army, with troops of grots.

There is still such a thing. There is also a Tinboyz. A good excuse for the presence of robots in the squad.

Captured Robotz  - Fighters with the characteristic robot
Runbot - Armoured Trooper with the characteristic robot

Pirated version of the stupid Christmas variant design GW actually released a while back.  I'll pass, thanks.
