Default Orks

I was given a nice number of orks today, enough grots and shoota boyz to set any ork army and some other stuff.

So, if I wanted to go ork is would cost me less then $100.

But a few things.

- These minis dont make GW people happy.
- Thats a lot of painting
- It would make my 6th army
- I would have to buy $100 worth of additional orks, and I just spent 200 on SMs.

Well, if you dont want them, sell them.
If you want them, then keep them and buy a few more orks

But surely you have enough armies already?

Do you actaully want to collect them, or do you only want to because you have the models?

Would you consider starting Orks if you didnt have these models?

If you wouldnt, then you might as well just sell them.

First off, this is off topic. Falls into the realm of "Mundane Pointless Stuff That I Must Share" (MP-STIMS, for any Straight Dopers out there)

Second: Haven't you been warned enough about profanity already? You have eight negative karma!

Rather than complain, I'd make the best of things! Hell, I've always wanted to give orks a whirl. If you want to sell, possibly post a notice on the trading board? I'd be willing to buy them, but with use of escrow.

Why does it make GW people unhappy? Are they proxies? Conversions? Sculpts? Green pieces of putty with "Waaagh!" flags stuck in them, made of tooth-picks and white-outed fortune cookie fortunes?

Anyone who is given several hundred dollars worth of merchandise for free, and then complains about it, DESPERATELY needs to live in a 3rd world country for a few years to gain a little perspective and learn a little gratitude.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

They are proxies, resin copies of GW 40k orks.

"Whore" is not a swear word, sorry.

Is not real merchandise and it could get me in ass load of troble.







This topic should be called "Should I make a ork army with nonGW friendly resin minis"

I refered to my friend as a whore because he's been trying to get rid of these fake orks for ages, like how a pimp whores out a woman.

I agree "whore" isn't profanity, although I'd prefer it not to be used in a title of a thread (As it's visible).. Anyway, that sucks, can't you give them back to your friend?

He said use them or pass them on.

But now that I have them, Im realy temped to make a ork army with them but I listed the reasons inthe first post.

To say that things things could get me in troble, is at best hucked out of the store. But if I did make orks I can mod and paint well enoght to the point where the only way to tell the difference would be wieght or if you cut one open. These guys would make up about half the army anyways, they're mostly shoota boyz and grots, I would have to get plenty of legit orks to make a army.

They're resin copies of the GW models? So when they're painted, the only difference would be weight right?
