BIG GAME 2016 -- part 2

As promised, these are all the pictures I took of games that took place on other tables throughout the weekend. So in no particular order, let's get to it!

But first, Conan.
Note the PBR case as light-blocking shade. This is a key piece of equipment.

BIG GAME 2016 -- Part 1

First, the pictures from the game I played with Dan, Steve, Dale, Jesse, and Tim. This was the first D-Co Big Game I've been involved in facing down Orks instead of being on the Xenos' side. Instead I brought the entire 7th Brotherhood of Grey Knights under Grand Master Covan Leorac to assist an alignment of Inquisitors. The force might not be one expected to fight an exceptional alliance of aliens instead of Warp-denizens, especially when several Traitor Legions have been detected in the area. However, Chapter 666's Prognosticars made clear with unusual specificity that it was the unsettling cooperation of Eldar and Ork that was the true threat to Doricar1.

Anyway, I took a lot of pictures. So many that I have to split them up. This post will be of the 12+ hour game I was part of in the Genizah Forest, presented in mostly chronological order. The rest of what I took will post tomorrow night.

Knights in Fairyland

I just made an awesome eBay purchase this week. I needed three more terminators real quick for the Big Game 2016 and saw an hilariously painted squad on a Buy it Now sale. I'm guessing the pink & white pauldrons were meant to resemble toadstools. And it might not show up on the phone's camera, but the swords have a really nice shimmery metallic blue finish.
Anyway, I was inspired by our newly sprouted seedlings in the sunny bay window. Someone else has to enjoy this besides me.

This one also had his shoulder pads glued on sideways. The pink is getting painted over, of course, but I think I might keep him modeled like this. Makes his silhouette even wider.
