Odd that you were only graced with two orks. If you want more, put those two in a shoebox in your garage for twenty years. When you check back in, you'll have a couple hundred.

At least that's how it happened to me.

Oh, and that cardboard dreadnought is going for BIG bucks on Ebay.

(Psst- did I make 'im look?)

A few days ago, I bought a shirt on Ebay for $5.00 USD. (Yes, I was drinking wine.) My wife thought I was crazy when I told her. It hasn't arrived yet. I have the feeling that I'll either love it or hate it.

Bought an empty box once, and I don't drink alcohol at all. Don't surf E-bay late at night.

@TheBeastRampant – Cheers, I'll try that ;-) Do they need sunlight and water?

Glad to hear it's not just me though, @ZULUPAUL really??!? :-D

Thought it was a kit…turned out to be the box & instructions. I keep the box to remind me not to do something that stupid again. BTW I wasn't the only bid on the item, so go figure!

Not a bad find.

Too bad you didn't get the codex imperialis though. One of my favorite 40k books and the last appearance of the Squats in 2nd edition.

@ZULUPAUL that's amazing… a cautionary tale!

@ordinarybass actually I did! Knew I left something out of the photos – also got the scenarios booklet too, not bad for twenty quid all in :-)
