I thought that Campbell's snow troopers looked really thematic moving across Matt's icy airfield, and John's Sisters came out pretty nice, too (didn't really get a chance to see them on Sunday but I got a good look going through Joe's pictures just now). Alex's Sons of Dorn are always really sharp, and I liked seeing Justin joining the Chaos club with his Death Guard. Finally, there's something about AdMech that makes them really pop on the table, and Tim's didn't disappoint in that department. Overall I'd have to say that it was super awesome to see that every single model (from what I could tell) was at least painted with three colors, and probably north of 95% (if not more) of the 45,000 points on the table were at least tabletop standard if not diorama quality. We've come a long way as a club and I'm really proud of you all!

As for my favorite moments, I think I have three:
1. Kharn dying in glorious single combat against the Knight Greenheart, although it sure would have been nice to blow the darn thing up first.
2. Abaddon taking 87 S5 shots to the face from an entire squadron of Leman Russ Punishers. When the smoke and saving throws cleared, he was still on his feet with one wound remaining.
3. The Lord of Skulls rampaging through the Imperial backfield, crushing superheavy tanks and mighty fortifications as if they were made of paper mache.

I forgot my chair, sorry. I didn't use it at all because the ecclesiarchy never rests.

.........and one more thing,

Hope no one felt left out with my "favorite army picks"
Obviously everyone had well painted, characterful models and armies :!:

.........except for the "poor paint job" on one of Colin's Defilers. Who the hell did that :?: :mrgreen:
