Edit: I suppose an introduction is in order.
I've been a member of the B&C Community since 2009. I've been playing 40k since 2004, when a friend of mine had been gassing on about "Orks with a K, because those LotR Orcs aren't big enough." I finally asked him what the hell he was talking about, and he gave me a copy of Codex: Orks (the one written in 2000 by Andy Chambers). One read through and I was hooked. Greenskin for life. Orks have remained constant through thick and thin in 40k for me; my Astartes armies have been a riotous roulette wheel of color (Ultras, Salamanders, Black Templar, Crimson Fists, and finally Alpha Legion).
Anyway, that's the boring part. What I love about Orks: big mobs of boys supported by ranged grots. Brutal close assaults, Nob assassination squads, trukks filled with specialists whizzing by and lightning the whole world on fire/replacing the air with rokkits.
I'm going with Goffs due to Mek Boss Buzzgob. I love (and will always cherish) the Dreadmob list and will do it again as soon as Kastorel-Novem is updated. However, it somehow slipped my notice that he was a Goff! Whatever works, this means I get to toss Ghaz into my lists when Grokgor is asleep, or something.
Speaking of: my Waaagh's background.
Back when I was in college, I used to play a buddy who had a Salamander army led by Vulkan He'stan. One day, my warboss managed to beat He'stan down three different games in a row, using different army lists. After the third time, my friend disgustingly said: "I hate your warboss. He's a Salamander-killer." I had been flirting with the name "Grokgor" (Grok being my WoW ork warrior's name, "Gor" meaning "bad"), but on that day, Grokgor Wyrmsmasha was born. I did a head swap with a Finecast Ghaz and an original metal warboss (helmetless one with a big choppa), and his legend began. He's been given a bike, mega armor, and I occasionally flirt with the idea of going back to the original model, but Grokgor shall remain.
Below is a picture of the first Goff I've done. A simple slugga boy, not yet dry from the wash. Pictures and updates will come as models and units are completed.
