The Inner Circle Presents:
This is a painting event designed to boost the Orky presence in the B&C, giving the Greenskin community an event to call their own! However, the event is not designed only for the hardcore Ork players but to all of us that have even a fleeting interest in the fantastic Ork range Who knows, this event may become the foundation of a mighty Waaagh! in the months and years to come.
Joining the Waaagh!
The “Waaagh!” event is meant to drive people to paint game-legal Ork units that could be additions to a pre-existing force or a Kill-Team force or even the foundations of a new army. Of course, if people want to go crazy and build Ghazghul’s Great Waaagh! down to the last Grot, I will not be the one to stop them!
So, the challenge is to paint at least one game-legal Ork unit in the next three months. If you manage to do so, then you’ll receive the appropriate badge and you may carry it with pride in your signature! If you complete more than one unit then greater recognitions will be bestowed upon you!
Start date: September 15th, 2019
End date: December 15th, 2019 (all day for all time-zones)
Participants may enter at any time - there is no cut-off date to get in. The deadline is immovable though so plan your free time accordingly to avoid disappointment.
- The entries must be supported by the Ork faction on the B&C. Simple. This includes any 40k Ork unit from any GW or FW range. No small planes here… (*wink-wink*)
- You must start by making one vow with at least one game-legal unit. There is no limit as to the number of units per vow – that’s up to you, but you only get THREE vows in total! Your vows must be sequential, i.e. you must complete a vow before following up with another. You may never have two vows outstanding at the same time. Your follow-up vows, if any, may also include any number of units in each. However, if you fail to complete even a single unit within a vow, you’ll prove yourself to be a Snot and will have to carry the badge of the Snot in utter shame.
- You must provide evidence of progress. This translates to posting a “before” and “after” picture for EACH unit pledged! You are welcome to post as many WIP pics as you like but the “before” and “after” are compulsory.
As mentioned above, each participant is required to make a binding vow. Please use the standard format below or any other format that will contain the vital information i.e. the info in brackets:
I [enter your name] will join the Waaagh! and vow to complete [enter number and details of units] before December 15th 2019. If I do this successfully, I will receive the rank I deserve in the Waaagh! and continue rampaging across the Galaxy. If I fail I’ll just prove I’m a Snot!
Once you take a vow there is no going back. If you fail for whatever reason to complete by December 15th, 2019 you will be a Snot – no two ways about it. Real life happens to all so make sure your vow is on the safe side!
All of you who participate in the Waaagh! may wear the relevant badge:
For those who successfully complete their pledged units in a timely fashion will be awarded the appropriate rank, depending on how many units they bring into the Waaagh!
There are 6 distinct ranks based on the amount of units completed by each participant:
1 Ork Unit: Ork Nob
2 Ork Units: Ork Boss
3 Ork Units: Ork Big Boss
4 Ork Units: Ork Mega Boss
5+ Ork Units: Arch-Arsonist (only the coolest title ever!!!)
Those who fail to complete even one of their pledged units will just be revealed for what they truly are: Snotlings! And to show this to the world you’ll have to wear the appropriate badge:
Similar square badges for all ranks will be available by the end of the event.
Now you may wear this as standalone badge or combine it with the generic participation badge thus:
DA TOP GANZ
And for those who like to live dangerously, uncover the spoiler tags at your own peril!!!
CAPTAIN SEMPER NOTES:
Well this is the first Xenos event run by the Inner Circle. I was inspired by the Orks’ performance in the ETL with their 100% completion rate and their colorful work. However, and despite their dedication, their numbers were too thin to challenge other more populous Forums. Well, increasing the Orks’ footprint in the B&C seems to me like a worthy and noble task! Hopefully this event will attract the attention of many frater and increase the popularity of Orks in the B&C making this sub-community even more vibrant and interactive!
I sure hope this will be the first of a series of Waaaghs and the following will be such as to justify this becoming an annual event!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Grotsmasha, the Inner Circle’s Master of the Arsenal for his tireless efforts to provide the unique images of the event, for giving me his feedback on the development of the rules and for putting up with my constant demands!
