Thanks very much, Dr H!

I also finally have a complete unit of Lootas (and an extra spanner in case I want to field them with slightly less firepower):


And I'm working on a second unit of Lootas:


I've got about 8 or so more actual loota models and quite a few left over burnas, so I should have 45 Lootas soon.

That's a lot of Lootas Warboss_Waaazag.

Just remember to paint a few in between all your assembly or the large lot of grey might dissuade you from tackling the challenge.

Cheers,

Funny you should mention that, CB. It's frankly difficult to change gears now that I have momentum for once. I've built more than 400 models over the past 2 months, give or take. Way more that I thought I'd be able to, but still barely making a dent in my titanic collection. I keep thinking I'm going to run out of time before I start seeing a significant reduction in my to do pile. So my plan now is to keep building until I run out of glue before I switch over to mass painting projects.

Good to see you're getting so much work done, Boss! Anything worth doing is worth doing to excess!

I really like the 'themed' mobs- maybe it's the OCD/Imperial Guard guy in me, but I like being able to look at a unit on the table and know what they are, without having to ask the other player. Grouped like you have them puts me in mind of when I started playing (a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... ).

And if you're on a roll, rock on. You'll know when to focus on a special unit or figure. I'm going to enjoy seeing your productivity over the next little bit.

Thanks, Meer_Cat. I just got a letter from my job (I work at a Casino) that basically says - and I'm paraphrasing quite a bit here, it was 3 pages long - I have medical insurance, free of charge until August 31st, 2020, but there's no guarantee we'll even reopen by that time. We will be amongst the last businesses allowed to reopen and there's no telling when or even if we will recover financially from this hit. In short, not everyone may be asked to come back to work, but if we are, it will happen in seniority order. The company understands if I have to find another job in the interim and move on. And I will still be able to collect unemployment (which at the moment pays me more than if I was working because of State mandated subsidies) even after the period of my furlough is done (apparently furloughs can last up to 6 months before becoming official terminations).

So, this is both good and bad for probably semi-obvious reasons. For one, it means I can collect legit unemployment for several more months, saving thousands of dollars in the process because of my unique living situation, low monthly fees, not paying for gas, tolls, or food on a daily basis. For another I can expect many more weeks of hobby productivity (Hooray!). And for a third, I have the luxury of watching the rest of the country and the world take the risk of reopening. I can watch the consequences of that without putting myself at risk. I can live in relative safety while the eager rush into disaster and get themselves killed.

On the down side, I might lose the best job I've ever had and be unemployed in my forties and in a job market clogged with candidates and an unknown demand for labor. So, I'm choosing to focus on the positive for now and just get as much Hobbying done as I possibly can every day until I get more definitive news from my job, whenever that is.

Thanks for reading this, if you have. More Orks to come shortly.

Man I hope the job situation works out. I’m in a similar spot. Though I work at a hospital, my old position is still fully staffed, but I took a promotion two weeks before they announced furloughs and the new position was cut . I’m still expecting to be called back, and I’m making more money on unemployment. Productivity is through the roof right now.

Just be careful with the unemployment as the extra $600 a month from the government cares act ends July 31st. After that it’s looking like base unemployment.

Orks coming along nicely.

Definitely enjoying the progress. As someone gearing up to start an Ork army (actually continue with a project I started a few years ago before I fell out of the hobby) it's definitely awesome seeing the sheer amount of boyz that are going together.

Hopefully everything works out work wise.

Just my 2 cents

Hang tough, Brother. My situation is a bit better, but not enough to where I'm not caught between the twin points of "I'm 58 and I need to be careful" and "the bank likes it when I pay my mortgage on time". I've got to build that better mousetrap to get someone to pay me to build and paint miniatures (at my pace).

Good luck to us all!

Hang in there the economy and government can't run on air. They have to open up everything soon. You will be back to work shortly. Great job knocking out the orks. I'd love to see the look on your opponent's when you drop 400 boys on the table. Can't wait to see some paint get on them. We all have stockpiles of mins. That's the fun of the hobby finding ways to get them done.

Finaly, (almost) all of my stormboys gathered in one spot. I left 2 in another case at a friend's apartment one County over, which might as well be Mars for the time being. I'll send an expedition for them when it's safe to do so.

Roughly 900 some-odd points, this.

(Don't mind my dinner on the far end of the table):


And each, individual unit:


Of course one of their arms fell off just before took these pictures. Because of course.

Ork armies are great to see. Means there is someone out there just as crazy as you are and is going to tackle a horde army with pizzazz . I can’t do ramshackle, I’ve said it before, it takes special skill to do it.

"Grey tide" you ain't kidding, Grubkrumpa. I'll be the first to admit that I still have at least 100 orks left to put together and a plan for them all, but my goodness is it an intimidating pile of endless grey.

Thanks, Theophony. Personally, I love ramshackle - comes from my inability to cut a straight line. I'm holding off building my buggies, mek gunz, and battlewagons till after I've completed all the infantry units, but almost every one of those unit types will be at least partially scratchbuilt. I've got two trukks waiting to be completed, two Battlewagons half built, twenty-five old skool ork buggies, and like forty-five mek gunz to hammer out. Maybe I should do some work on some of those to break this grey monotony up, after all?

You keep this amount of progress up you will need a 55 gallon drum of primer to tackle that collection. I can't wait to see your color scheme and paint job for these guys.

I have a better handle on what I'm painting my orks. They're a Deathskullz/Bad Moonz band, so my color palette is yellow, blue, black, white, gun metal, and gold. Plenty to work with and obnoxious as possible.

I really only have 1 question at this point.

How long did it take to amass this many orks??

I'm honestly in awe every time I see more and more get added to the green tide.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks! As to the question of how long? About 20 years ago, give or take, I Worked at GW retail stores. Back then employees got significant discounts on purchases. I used that to my advantage. Additionally, about 11 years ago I came in to a very large sum of money. I squandered most of it, but bought a brand new car and most of the orks you're seeing me amass here. Back then there were sellers on ebay that would sell lots of 10 ork torsos, 10 ork legs, and most kits still come with arms to make two different unit types. But I also horded orks, always afraid I would not have enough, never daring to make any for fear I'd somehow run out. And now I'm past that fear.

On my work bench I have 50 ork bodies glued to legs, 7 ork legs glued to bases, and 50 more legs waiting to be worked on. There's also 38 nobs in various states of assembly, 10 bikers, 8 deffkoptas, 8 killa kans, the parts for maybe 5 more trukks, 3 shokkjump dragstas, 2 kustom boosta blastas, dozens of old skool buggies worth of parts (wheels, drivers, etc.), and two more less scratbuilt battlewagons about midway built. It's also extremely possible I have a hundred more models tucked away in storage that I can't get to because of lock down.

The short answer, though, is that I've been hording parts and ork models for the better part of 20 years and now I'm finally building them all.

Not yet, they're my next big project. Buggies, trukks, battlewagons, a Gork- and a Morkanaut, 3 shokkjump dragstas, and a crapload of mek gunz. I'm so far away from being done. I also got like 8 kans.
