Warhammer 40k Event and some Custom Boards!
Thought I'd share some photos of the event this past weekend. I hold a 40k event every other month at Endzone Games in Clearfield Utah. The focus on these events is leass tournament and more of an event to come out and play some friendly games. We had 18 folks attend, some new faces and others old familiar friends. Between entry fees and some contributions from the store, we gave out around $350 in store credit and gaming accessories as well as some custom terrain(ammo dumps and fuel reserves). At every event i try to include as many door prizes as i can, and giving away the terrain peices seemed like a good idea and a way to explore some of the new battlefield debris that are in the new 6th edition rule set.
Also included here in the pics are some shots of the themed tables I added for the event. A volcanic table, a city streeets table and an updated winter table(the old one was based on a roll of white felt). These turned out pretty well and recieved lots of compliments, so I think the effort paid off in the end. I'm aiming to add another few themed tables for the next one a few months down the road as well. The next ones up are an airfield table, a trench table, and a tropical islands table, so hopefully those will be interesting and well recieved next time as well!

On to the pics! First the themed boards:
The volcanic table:
Unfortunatly my camera had trouble focusing on the citys streets table! WildChevy came to the resucue though, as he snapped some pics of the boards before the event got rolling and his turned out picture perfect! The first pic of each table above were taken by him and shared for the blog!
The winter table:
and some of the other tables with games in progress:
Oh, a little of my farm terrain(uncomplete and WIP still) but I want to theme a table around my cottege with the walls and these crops as well. Maybe a boccage style board that could also find some use in WWII style games like DUST and others.
A WIP progress shot of the castings of the barrels for the fuel reserves terrain peices. You can see the finished peices in many of the photos. I primed them brown and preshaded them so that individual players that recieved them could paint them up however they wished to match thier own terrain and armies. The barrels shown are only about half of what i ended up casting ... :)
A big thanks to everyone that attended, the event went off well and it looked like everyone was having a good time. We are currently running a league that will culminate in the next event in April, So there should be some fun days ahead!
