So a big shout out to all the guys who made it to the Chili Waaagh! this past Saturday. I can't remember ever having a more pleasant experience with 40k, and I didn't even bring that much (model wise).
For those of you unfortunate enough to have not been there, this was a themed Apocalypse event, forming and following a narrative of a massive Ork Waaagh that slammed into an Imperial planet. With the Guard forces utterly crushed or routed, several Space Marine chapters, and a Legion Invigilata Warlord Titan responded to the Distress Beacon. The Orks had crafted not only several Stompas, including a Shock Attack Stompa, but had created a foul titanic monstrosity classified as a Gargant.
The Facebook page leading up to the event was amazing. Several in-character responses and discussions from both factions' commanders, and showing up to the event and seeing most everything painted was amazing. I loved the table, the scenario and the people. A great time was had by all. Special thanks to Johnny McGinnis for hosting the event. I look forward to coming down for the next Waaagh!
Below are a ton of pictures taken from the event.
