Sup /tg/.

I was going through my files and found all the old Scraplootas stories (you know, these guys https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Scraplootas); I had saved them all in text files as well as a reading order. It had been a few years, so I decided to re-read them all.

As I was doing this I realized two things:
1. The reading order could use some reworking.
2. Having them all be in separate files was inconvenient.

So I decided to compile them all into collections. The main big book collection listed on the 1d4chan page is missing stories and never went through any proof reading, so I fixed up whatever typos and grammar I found while I was re-reading.

I figured I might as well share them here.

So, here's the complete (kind of) collection, in four volumes:

Not that anon and Boris is a Chaos Titan, but I guess that's the same idea.

They just glued a bunch of squigs to the daemon core and called it a day.

They also deep strike it behind enemy lines from their krooza.

Not this anon, but similar to his logic, I really like Blue and Da Scraplootas because even though they got ridiculously fleshed out over the course of their existence, they remained lighthearted and silly. They've also got a pretty colorful cast, between the three weirdgrots pretending to be one Weirdboy in an overcoat, the titan pilot who thinks he IS the titan, the Grotocracy or even their orkaboo farseer stalker. There's just something innocently saturday morning cartoon about the whole setup.

Even more impressive to me is how not only was Blue spawned from a single post in one of those awful "tau slave, wat do" threads, but the Scraplootas themselves were all fleshed out from a generic Kustom Tribe roll chart. To me, they represent that spark of creativity where everything just "clicks" that /tg/ can possess that keeps me coming back.

I would prefer a Scraplootas reference. Not even Blue, just something about an eccentric band of freebooterz with a titan and way too many grots.

Lessee...
I'm guessing it to be a /tg/ OC since you posted on /tg/
There looks to be a robot involved judging by your picture.
Then there is the slit on the robot, which implies tau involvement. Female tau at that...

So lets compile the evidence. /tg/ OC, robot, female tau. Clearly, it can be none other than...
BORIS DA TITAN

Good on you, op, I always did like the Scraplootas.

The Scraplootas Are Far From Finished

>Fings are going great, Kaptin! We’z got da leff arm roight shooty wiff loads more dakka. Dere wuzzn’t much leff of da roight one, though, so we’z been havin ta make dat one mosely from scratch
Bit of an inconsistency. The Right Arm is the shooty arm, the left arm is the choppy arm. Or maybe this ork just doesn't know his right and left

If being more dakka itself isn't orky, then I don't know what is.

Seconding the need for more Blue. Maybe her and Boris getting up to shenanigans.

I still love the idea of the Scraplootas and how their Krooza is mostly a Looted Titan Deployment Pod that they use to deep strike an Imperator Titan. Its just so fucking orky.

Its grot sized, and the Scraplootas have more grots than they know what to do with, so she probably just stole it/won it/krumped a grot for it.
>>24768610
We rolled some dice tables for make a Kustom War Tribe, and one of the possible impressive feats to land on was looting a chaos titan, with the follow-up table determining that what we did with it was make it orky

I think Xeno and Blue were made with completely design philosophies. Xeno was the result of someone trying to take a far-fetched idea and make it very serious and grounded whereas Scraplootas took a farfetched idea and cranked it to 11. Tough to be fair, it helped considerably that Scraplootas had /tg/ dice on their side in the creation rolls. After all, /tg/ would have never gotten came up Boris da Titan and by extension the entirety of the Grotopolis if the Dice Gods hadn't gifted us with a looted Chaos Titan.

Stompas have better armor whereas Titans usually have nicer guns. Thats why you simply use both at once with a little Chaos thrown in for good measure.

They looted her, mistaking her for a blue grot. Once they figured out their mistake, they didn't much care because she made good gubbins. Now she thinks shes an ork just like the rest of the boys and is loving it.

The Scraplootas are...different.

Here starts the game of GorkaMorka!
On a planet of Angelis,Orkish tribes will struggle to find the way to finish the construction of horrible metal beast and start a greatest WAAAAAGH galaxy ever seen.

Characters are to be rolled in next hour or two.
Only orks and grots are accepted.
Also we need one space marine, eldar or inquisition player.
Armies shouldn't be too great.
I am writing the prologue at the moment.

To what extent can an ork steal other technology and orkify it?

>Uh, what about everything she did prior to Xeno's Adventure?

Act like a cutesy comic relief waifu bait nonentity? Sure, that's depth. At least Blue has the Scraplootas going along with her.

Truth be told, I actually think Boris, the Grotocracy, and the Scraplootas as a whole are a lot better OC than Blue, Blue is just more easily recognisable.
