-UPDATE-
I bet you thought I was dead. Nope, but I have had two kids since starting this thread, so that is PRETTY CLOSE TO THE SAME THING.

Anyway, I realise that this has dragged out, so I am putting a hard stop on it - 1st April, or thereabouts, I am going to get oadie and Buttery Commissar to ship the orks they have to me, and then base them and take all the final shots for this project - I may end up donating them, or putting them on display, or whatever - I have no idea. I have still never played a game of 40k, and I can't see that changing in the future, so I don't need them.

SO, I have sent a message out to everyone on the list and asked that they finish up by then if they intend to.
-/UPDATE-

Previous update(s):
Spoiler:



Hello Klansmen... wait, that sounds terrible

Screw it.

Hello friends,

I have just PMd all of the original North American brohirrim, and hope that they will still be able to paint. Most of you are rather prolific posters, so I know you're still alive.

Why on earth am I PMing you when I don't have orks for you? WELL MAYBE I DO? DIDNT THINK ABOUT THAT DID YOU?!?!??!

There will be an update soon(tm), but I have firm reason to believe that soon(tm) you will all be holding an ork, ready for paint.

I am also about to PM all of the ~in progress~ orks that have been delivered to ROYAL BRITTANIA and her colonies to see how you're all doing. No judgement here, I love you all and whatever, but don't make me Jimmy Whales eyes you. I'll do it, I swear to god.
-UPDATE-
UK models should be in your hot little hands, some have been returned to Buttery Commissar (THANKS!)

US models will be shipping out soon, oadie is pretty busy at the moment due to a whole lot of misfortune - please be patient, the waaaagh will wait.

Australia models are definitely all received, and Januine's has made it back(!)

There is no due date folks, add them to your painting queue and do your best when you feel like painting them!
-/UPDATE-

-UPDATE-
Euros: If you are on the list, and have sent me your address, you will have a model coming to you in the next few weeks. Models are in the UK right now, and will probably be shipped out next week. If you are not on the list, and want to donate a model, please PM Buttery Commissar for their address to send your completed model. If you want to donate models but not paint, PM me.

Ameribros: If you are on the list, and have sent me your address, you will have a model coming to you in the next few weeks also. Models are actually in oadie's hot little hands, and will be shipped out soon(tm). If you are not on the list, and want to paint a model, please PM oadie as they have their own stash of models they are donating. If you want to donate your own painted model, please PM oadie for their address.

Australiasians: Whatever yo, there are only four of us anyway. PM me for all your orky questions.

-/UPDATE-
-UPDATE-
Buttery Commissar and oadie have received the European and North American shipments respectively. They will be shipping out soon(tm) and you should receive your models early next month!

Another super big thanks to BC and oadie, you're both really super.
-/UPDATE-

-UPDATE-
Shipping is happening today - ALL MODELS ARE ALLOCATED, everyone is getting one single model for maximum randomness. If you still want to join in, you will need to donate - I won't pay for your plastic, but will happily pay for your shipping. I don't mean to be a jerk, but it should be fair to all. Each package that reaches you will have a small set of instructions with it covering the very few requirements for this, as well as return addresses and labels. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS!
-/UPDATE-

-UPDATE-
Shipping is sorted, these will be going out soon(tm), you will get them in a month or so - there will be instructions in the package. You are all my favourite people
-/UPDATE-

-UPDATE-
So shipping is wrecking me, apparently - BC has generously offered their time to reship to the UK folks, I need an Ameribro to help with the same there - I will ship everything to one person, they distribute locally, you all ship back to that person, they ship to me (or whatever).
-/UPDATE-


Hi folks,

An idea formed in the "I paint your model" thread that if I sent out a stack of orks to a lot of different people with a vague idea of what clan they're from, they resulting differences between them all would look amazingly orky.

So here we are, if you would like to paint an ork or two, I will send them to you - you paint them at your leisure, and send them back when you can. I'm happy to pay for the postage back, obviously.

The models themselves are from Assault on Black Reach, so I am going to make them part of the Goff Clan MAN am I dumb, this should obviously be the Dakka Dakka Clan - that said, I don't really care - if you can just make them look orky, I will be more than happy. You can feel free to customize them, do an amazing paint job, do a super horrible paint job, dip them, battle damage, whatever - there is literally no way you can go wrong, unless you are Buttery Commissar and intend to paint them hot pink, which while it MIGHT work in some capacity, I don't want to encourage it.

Dirty, filthy, green orks - black gear, red/yellow/blue accent colour, checkerboard accents if you can - I literally don't care - this is your homebrew ork clan as much as mine

The only thing I'll ask, is don't base them - I will base them myself to ensure cohesion with the entire lot of them. Oh, and please send them back, finished or not

I would like EVERYONE that has the desire to do this, regardless of skill level, to feel free to join in - they are orks, you cannot stuff this up, no matter how bad you think your painting is, and I will appreciate your help.

Thanks!

-----

More details from below;

Oh, I should add, I will send these little buggers out off the sprue, with a base, lightly cleaned of mold lines - if you want to mount them to the base and/or do a better job of cleaning off mold lines, it'd be appreciated but not necessary - whatever works out easiest for you guys!

I don't care what green you use, and ideally it shouldn't match - your best judgement of an orky green is fine.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, write your name on the bottom of the base or something so I can make sure to keep track of who is who

Sounds interesting. How many orks are you trying to have in total? If it's not too small of an amount I may do it... I just don't want to be embarrassed by my painting (I'm not THAT bad. Don't get scared.)

Go on then.
If I hadn't literally just posted my wolf out to you I'd have asked if you could work exchange on one of my IG.

As a serious question, do you need the skin tone to match a particular green? If you tell me the name of it I'll do my best.

I have the Ork half of the Assault on Black Reach set, so;

1 Ork Warboss
20 Ork Boyz
5 Ork Nobz
3 Ork Deffkoptas

If more people are interested, I can probably dig another box out - I think I have stormclaw here somewhere.

Oh, I should add, I will send these little buggers out off the sprue, with a base, lightly cleaned of mold lines - if you want to mount them to the base and/or do a better job of cleaning off mold lines, it'd be appreciated but not necessary - whatever works out easiest for you guys!

I'll go in. I'd like to paint a HQ style model or something a bit bigger than a regular Ork Boy if you have anything lying around.

I am also in Sydney (if your location is correct). So I could probably pick it up off you/drop it off and save some postage.

You can see some of my own orks here: http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/417721.page

Yeah mate I can do a Deffkopta, can use it to inspire the 6 of my own that I need to paint.

I'm in Glebe, so near enough to the CBD most days.

I'd be happy to donate a model. I'll let you know when I'm ready to ship. (I have plenty of orks about, so don't worry about shipping one to me.)

I notice my posts seem to bring threads to a screeching halt. Considering the content of most threads on dakka, you're welcome.

Less than getting them commission painted?

Hit me with a PM if you don't mind sending some out to Canada. I'd be willing to do a Nob and a few boyz if it helps you get the whole lot done.
