Paper Waagh!

Being cheap like I am. I decided that the money needed for a proper waagh was way too much for me.

To that end, I decided that I had more time than money and decided to make myself a paper waagh. Whyle my fellow players initially scoffed at my "Tube" army. They have since come to realize that because of it, I have practically everything in the Ork Codex, then some.

I decided I would share the files with you guys here. Enjoy!
File Folder: http://www.mediafire.com/?2iz1ibjbghluh

All files are in .pptx format. (Microsoft PowerPoint 2007+) You can download the entire zip file, or merely the individual files you want.

Please keep in mind that all figures and models are designed to be simply Print>Cut>Glue>Play. The vehicles ARE NOT designed to mimic the look of a WWG style ork model. They will be recognizable for what they are, but they will not win any beauty contests. This also means that the models are "smooth." The models have textures printed on the pattern. Unfortunately this means unless you have photoshop/ppt skills, you will not be able to add in alot of customization unless you glue on spare parts. However, if you are on the cheap like I am, it works and works well.


Ork Paper Army: Includes tube proxies of every ork figurine in the codex. Base size when rolled and glued should approximate the standard base size. I use tubes instead of paper cutouts because tubes allow for better LOS (I.E. 3d tube vs 2d cutout.) Heights may not be perfect, but the tubes are perfectly usable, just remember if you can see the tube, you can see the model.

Big Gunz: This file contains what amounts to a big metal looking cannon. The original shape WAS an enlarged cannon from a paper galleon. This shape has been re-skinned to give it a metallic look. Its not the prettiest figure on the table, but it will get the job done.

Truck: Yes, its the Ork Trukk! This figure will resemble a flat-bed truck when complete. It actually has enough room to hold 10 25mm tube figures. Not quite the 12 That its supposed to.

Battlewagon: This is probably the most complex of the paper models. Its body comes in 3 sections. And has parts for 3 variations of deffrolla. There is a simple steam-rolla, a 3-rotary saw blade -rolla, and a combine thresher style rolla.

Tank: This model is a fairly simple looking tank. Its mildly comical looking with a gun a bit too big for it, but works well as a Looted Wagon, or as grot tanks.

[/b]Pulsa Rokkit This monstrosity stands over a foot high when complete. Its designed to be free standing, as such, it does not have the launcher as seen in the book. Oddly enough (pure coincidence) it seems to fit pretty well if layed into a Trukk.

While not in this set of downloads, I am also working on an Ork Stompa. :)

I'm redesigning my Deff Dread and my Killa Kans as they just weren't working. I have yet to figure out a decent way to do Bikes, Buggies, or Trakks.

Here are Pics for my Paper Waagh!
Unfortunately some of the pics are out of focus, but here goes!

What do you guys think?

PS the Tubes are now in color. But the original print offs were in BW for ink purposes.

That is pretty fricking cool.

Not something most people would allow on a table, but to be honest i wouldn't have a problem with it. The amount effort that has gone into this must be huge and the overall effect is quite impressive.

+1 Rep My friend

This can only devolve further; Into obscenity. I suggest you all let it go now. If he has some one to play then fine. If you dont like it then fine. We all have opinions.

Lets not start a war here eh

To be honest Alice this is how forums work, people post things and the members either agree or disagree in opinion, if we simply decided to agree to disagree it would be a pretty boring place.
You failed to grasp my meaning..... Unsuprising.

ooo!! fan boi wordage!!.... Pfft idiocy
'L337' means 'Elite'

Remember when you'd input 80085 on a calculator and turn it upside down? (I know you did, there is no use denying it) :p
it spelt 'BOOBS'
This is the same kind of thing; using numbers as proxy for letters.
It was popular for a time, Commonly refering to Counterstrike players (Pure idiocy in my opinion and Unreal Tournament was better :p)

A nice lesson in interweb culture for you :laugh::p

Thank you, SGMalice. Learn something new every day, huh? :p
Always, my friend, always.

Your welcome

No, it spells SBOOB...
Oops!! :shok:
Pfft! my bad :laugh::p

You know what i meant

Except he shouldn't have to know what that leet speak means as it's not meant to be on the site, it's in the rules!
:shok: OH NOEZ!!! What are the L337 Fanboi/girls gonna do now?!!

Note the sarcasm. IMHO if you can't speak proper english then you shouldn't speak at all
And no twisting my words, as you all know very well what i mean :p

Use the word sboob.
Your not going to let that go are you?

Bloody men! :p

This is back up top i see XD

It would be interesting to know what the OP is up to now regarding this subject. Does he still use them or has he bought some mini's e.t.c.
Does he even come here anymore!?

...this was more about the OP saying " im gonna play the game but i aint spending a bean on the hobby, but my game pieces wont bit fit for the job either, also im bloody clever for doing it too"....
Yeah, he did go a little far with that, even in my opinion and i'm usually pretty generous with my leeway on such things.

@ShadowMatt: Not being able to afford it is one thing, but intentionally not buying them and saying that you never will, then acting like we are stupid for doing it is another all together.
I hope you read the entire thread otherwise your going to look rather stupid for what you just said my friend.

It should have stayed dead really.

Oh well

Finally?! I don't recall that we have ever disagreed. Ah well never mind
