So GW won't start a Waagh they say? Not enough reinforcements they say? Well Skumdreg is always looking for a fight and is more than happy to send aid! 

 

Story: GW is not playing Orks at Adepticon because - and I quote - "It's genuinely is because the studio Ork army is not 4,000 points! No conspiracy theory here - that's the truth! We do love Orks too... trust us!" (this was a response to a fellow Ork player asking why we were excluded from voting which army Game Workshop would bring to Adepticon. Well then... I don't know about this brothers... but I feel a disturbance in the Warp... I see a green light far away on the other side of the galaxy... I hear the sounds of a WAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! 

 

Plan: It's obvious GW would never, under any circumstances, lie to their customers so.... I think it's time we send them reinforcements! Although we're unlikely going to gather enough of a Green Tide for Adepticon we must prepare GW for any future events! Therefore, I suggest we send a Waaagh to GW! 

 

Sending a Waaagh to GW will consist of every Ork player we can find sending at least 1 Ork Boy model to this address: 

 

Games Workshop Ltd.

 

Willow Rd.

 

Lenton

 

Nottingham

 

NG7 2WS

 

2nd Class (from UK or cheapest postage from where ever you are) on the 28th of March 2018. On the package or letter you must scrawl (as noticeable and as Large as you can) WAAAAAAGH AID ENCLOSED!

 

Inside you may write what ever letter you like but I would suggest something related to them not having 4k points worth of Orks. I personally will be saying something like: Your team at Adepticon said that they couldn't bring Orks because the Studio didn't have 4k points of them, so I thought you might need some help.  Here is something to get you started.

 

 

Please be aware! I very much doubt GW will take notice (this is more for our own enjoyment and sanity) so don't send you good models because you're unlikely to ever get them back! I would suggest sending 1 unpainted or painted Ork Boy. 

 

What we Hope to accomplish: 

Not much... we're Ork players so we're just as "imaginative" as the Orks are! It's really a bit of fun. However, if anything we hope to get some response out of GW or at least demonstrate how much we all feel a little underrepresented by GW (despite being one of the original founding factions). In addition, perhaps it might even prove how dedicated the Ork player base still is to seeing the representation of Orks! 

 

So spread the word to every Ork player you know! Even copy and paste this if you need too and post it on other forums! LET'S SEND THE WAAAAAAGH! 

 

(please note before this goes live and we do Copy and Past it can we just have a day or so with suggestions and edits below and then I'll say when we can really go live)

 

 

Ork Translation: 

 

So GW won't start a Waagh they say? Nub enough reinforcements they say? Well Skumdreg iz always lookin' fer a scrap an iz mor'un 'appy ter send aid! 
 
Stoary: GW iz nub playin' Orks at Adepticon koz - an meeb qwote - "S'genuinelee iz koz da studio Ork horde iz nub 4,000 points! No conspiracy theoary 'ere - datz da trud! Weeb du love Orks too... trust us!" (dis wuzza response ter a fellow Ork playa askin' why weeb woz excludeded from votin' which horde Game Workshop wuud brin' ter Adepticon. Well den...  Meeb donz knowz ubbout dis brudurz... but meeb feel a disturbanz in da Warp...  Meeb see a greun lite far ways away on da uvver side o' da galaxy...  Meeb 'eer da sownz o' a WAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! 
 
Plan: LISSEN YAH GITZ AN PUT DAT CHOPPA DOWN!  S'obvious GW wuud neva, unda ony circumstancz, lie ter their customaz so....  Meeb tink s'time weeb send dim reinforcements! Aldough weez unlikelee goin' ter gavva enough o' a Greun Tide fer Adepticon weeb must per-pare GW fer ony futur events! Therefore, meeb suggest weeb send a Waaagh ter GW! 
 
 
Sendin' a Waaagh ter GW will consist o' ebry Ork playa weeb kan find sendin' at least 1 Ork Boy model ter dis addrez: 
 
 
Gamz Workshop Ltd.
 
 
Willow Rd.
 
 
Lenton
 
 
Noddingham

I might attach something more simplistic and full of irony along the lines of "Your team at Adepticon said that they couldn't bring Orks because the Studio didn't have 4k points of them, so I thought you might need some help.  Here is something to get you started."

I like that! I think most people should write this. XD

Adepticon is running from 21st-25th March at

 

Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center
1551 N. Thoreau Dr.
Schaumburg, IL 60173
USA
1-847-303-4100

 

(Don't know if that number at the end is part of the address or a phone number - perhaps an American can help?)

 

It might have more impact if the models were sent to them 'FAO Games Workshop' at that address instead (FAO - For (the) Attention Of  in case the term's unfamiliar) and, since this is effectively a 'urine extraction' (or piss-take if you'll excuse my French), it would be more effective if the models were painted up to the best you can manage in the time available - they don't have to be Golden Demon contenders, just look ok on a tabletop. This would make it seem even more ridiculous that GW have been selling Orks for over 30 years and still need charity donations from customers to put a 4k list of them together.

I don't think we need to be harassing a place that doesn't have anything to do with GW. Sending them directly to GW would make more sense and mean we're not hurting anyone.

The number at the end is indeed a phone number Badfang. If shipped to the convention site, GW might never receive them. The "donations" could to easily/conveniently wind up in file 13 (the trash). Ship 'em to Nottingham!

Oh now I like this. I'll certainly be contributing, and will spread the word too when we get the green light to.

 

Dim, (I know you're lurking in that suspicious shadow Dim) if you don't bombard them with grots I shall be highly disappointed.


Nothing is safe from the spannrz n' bloo paint of da Kings of Loot!

How did you guess that I was thinking of sending them a box of Grots? Am I THAT predictable?

It's just a perfectly Dim thing to do. Not so much predictable as par for the course.

As I say, it's very unlikely to actually get a response but I think this would be goof for our own mental health. XD

Anyway, i say we can green light this! Go! Spread the word of Gork and Mork! Just don't be abusive. I won't be responsible for this and it doesn't send a good message.

 

I think some body is posting it on Dakka Dakka... get ready for the Gitz storm of anger from none Ork players.

You can walk right up to them apparently. Tell them we're coming. :P I have an unpainted Black Reach Nob I have ready to send. It's flat so should go in an envelope pretty well. It was already glued some times ago but the arms and head just snapped off when i gave them a bit of a pull so perfect for them to put together and paint!

We're trending on the 40k Subreddit guys!!! Good work! Someone can post to 4chan /tg/ if they want but I have no idea how 4chan work. I would suggest copy and pasting this the reddit version as it has all the warnings and stuff on it.

Generally i find it takes about 3 weeks for a package to reach me from the UK. I presume the reverse probably holds true, making April fools a bit of a stretch. Unless the postal workers are involved in the ork aid campaign themselves and decide to speed it through the system a bit. ..
