Back from Games Day 2011!

Here we are at 11 in the morning keepin' it casual with a Khorne Berzerker. This suit was out of control! It looks way better than any of the giant marines they drag around and you can wear it!

My second favorite part about GD is seeing all the completed tables. 

There were many more to be seen. They also had every specialist game. Mordheim, Lord of the Rings, Necromunda, Space Hulk, Bloodbowl, come to think of it there was no GorkaMorka in sight : /

There were of course a mess of mega battles too. Here's brother John after Kharn the Betrayer slaughtered Grey Hunters, a dreadnaught, and a Berzerker as well. Khorne cares not from where the blood flows.

Remember: the more teeth you show, the happier you are. Naturally since you can see his rear molars Brother John was ecstaic!

Who can forger this cool game. One guy runs a cone out on the floor and you guess how far away he is. The whole crowd shouts BOOM and another guy sprints off with the end of the largest tape measurer know to man. If you're within 2 feet of the target you get a box from the table. I didn't win.

The attendees really make the day though. You gotta love these guys.

My favorite part is all the free swag to be had, most coveted of the swag was the Golden Demon trophy. Like I said before I had 9 entries, all of which made first cut, I was over joyed to see that 3 of them won Golden Demons. Silver in the squad category, silver in the diorama category, and Gold in the Lord of the Rings single category.

Sorry I don't have time to photograph all my entries but in 2 days I'm off to Gen Con so I'm a little strapped for time. I should have some up by the end of August when I return.

A day later and I can't wait until the next Games Day. 

Hopefully I can collect some more Demons. What a rush, it's hard to explain the feeling but I think this video sums it up nicely.


  1. Those boards are beyond epic!

  2. Pics of the large bolter construction can be found and shameless self-promotion:
