My plan after the grots was to rebuild my Grey Knights but I have to admit I have no love for the new codex.
I used to love playing my Thousand Sons using Grey Knight rules as the army was a blast to play due to it's combinations provided by the henchmen and inquisitors, even more so when Psyker Henchmen could pick almost any power. There were just so many fun combinations and psychic potential. But the recent release of the codex has taken a good portion of that enjoyment away. It just so BLAND with hardly no variety to it.

Now what's left of my army is unusable due to only having 3 grey knights units with no 2nd troops choice or HQ, plus 2 rifledreads that have been made expensive and less effective. The result being... I just can't don't feel any passion or drive to rebuild my grey knight army.

So I dunno what to do with the army as I can't think of any way to field it that will capture the previous enjoyment I had with it, but I can't bring myself to sell either. So for the moment they'll likely be shelved till Forgeworld bring out the Thousand Sons for the Horus Heresy.

I might actually consider replacing them with a much more interesting Chaos Daemon army led by Thousand Sons sorcerers with familiars similar to my Dreadknight, I really don't know at the moment. :( 
Rebel Grot Warboss UP by Proiteus
Rebel Grot Warboss UP

Well here he is; Commissar Yarrick or in this army Kaptin Squigscream. I decided to convert an exo suit for the rebel grot warboss as it was the only way he'd be likely weilding a storm bolter and power klaw, plus Yarrick is hard as nails. I was lucky as the flash gitz provided me with the cruical legs, power pack and cyborg eye.

I look forward to painting him.

Rebel Grot Remote Splosives UP by Proiteus
Rebel Grot Remote Splosives UP

If one FW guard unit caught my eye as being something a gretchin would do it was the Cyclops remote demolition vehicle, basically it's 3 independent demo charges with toughness 6, 2 wounds and a 4+ save controlled by a squad of guardsmen at the back. What sealed the deal was Kromlech's orky Goliath mines.

Used them yesterday, not by far the most competitive unit in standard games but a fun one to use as they can keep your opponent on their toes.

Rebel Grot Tankzappaz (Rapier Laser Batteries) by Proiteus
Rebel Grot Tankzappaz (Rapier Laser Batteries)

Well I've finally got my Rapier crews painted up, only change made was giving one a russian hat because he look a bit bland. The grot mek has also come out well even thou gamewise he's just a standard guardsmen. If I ever do convert a guard Engineer I'll likely make him look like the goblin tinker Gazlowe from Heroes Of The Storm.

Agent Spookumz (Grot Vindicare) by Proiteus
Agent Spookumz (Grot Vindicare)

Agent spookum's used to be represent Marbo but since they're are no new rules on the horizon for him I've re-purposed him as a Vindicare Assassin. Converting a very orky and powerful looking sniper rifle, so far he's had some hit and miss games.

The other dude moved away and after that it was difficult to really make any plans for anything really.
