Well, I've just punched, assembled and stored all the goober in the Designer Ogre Edition (non-KS) and it took about 3 hours (if anyone wants to know how long to set aside.

I'm not the sort of person who can just punch pieces as and when I need them.

I have to say that it looks an awesome prospect when you first start, but due to the excellent way that it has been planned by SJG it flows along nicely. The lines around the pieces needed to make each ogre and building are invaluable. But the high quality punching (laser cutting?) done on production is a REAL boon. If it had been done on the cheap it would have been a complete and utter nightmare to deal with so many pieces.

Out of all the pieces assembled, only 2 pieces will need a spot of glue to hold them in place. Everything else is nice and snug.

Now I just need to find the kit to build an opponent

My Gaming OCD had me gluing all the 3D pieces, then using colored sharpies to fill in all the non-colored cardboard edges. Looks great, but after six days I'm only about 60% through all of the 3D models!

I'm in a similar boat. Far closer to completion however.

I found that it goes faster to color all the edges, and then assemble...

Well if they had been plastic minis I would have felt obliged to paint them, but they look just fine as they are for the added time required to do as you are doing, but I wish you joy of it.

I'm going to be playing it almost exclusively solo and I give myself permission to just say no to glue and sharpies on this occasion.

I'm taking my time. My 5 year old daughter and I can do it together. She does the larger areas with markers (dry erase for easy fix ups of errors,) and I do the tight spots. Then I line them up and she pushes them together.

She now knows what an Ogre is! Given she loves WALL-E, a game with Robots she is helping me build is a good thing. She also paints while I paint minis. I'm going to make a gamer out of her!
