As an Imperial guard general I like to play the part, so I start with an Aperitif, followed by a six course feast including quail's scotched eggs, caviar and the finest rustic bread flown in fresh from the south of france, then a sorbet for a palet cleanser followed by wild wood pigeon in a truffle sauce, sorbet again, then there's the fish course, usually hand caught trout or salmon from the scottish highlands, sorbet, then a full spit roast wild boar caught by the groundsman on my estate, another sorbet, fillet mignion cut from cows that have been hand reared on only the finest totally organic oats on the plains of tibet, sorbet, a wide selection of the world's finest deserts, finishing with coffee made from beans collected by a tribe of wild men out in the jungles of south america, cheeses (150 varieties) and a glass of port from a bottle recovered from the wreck of the Titanic.

I mean, really, anything less and your avarage guadsman will start to question one's ability to command!

My Complete DA collection

That's me breathing fire in my avatar, my aim was a bit off to start but i got all those orks in the end!

What do you tend to eat when you're doing wargaming stuff? Bugman's is pretty much burgers or pizza, so I take it that's the most common, but who knows; someone here might just value their waistline, or some other crazy concept.

Depending on where you live if you want really awesome food you cannot go wrong with Indian food and most run buffets. I do not play the board game but I have ordered Indian food during LAN parties. There is always something for everyone if you go with the full spectrum. It usually costs me between 100 and 180 dollars.

The most prevalent seems to be Punjabi and southern is spicier than northern.

I found this while looking up the differences it is rather long so I put it behind spoiler tags.

being a chef I sometimes will go all fancy on my friends and do beef wellington, bacon wrapped dates, bacon wrapped shrimps on a skewer, stuffed calamari or a nice salmon with some tomato caviar but that is only once in a while usually pizza and beer. This is wargaming not the food festival

Wow so many carbs !

I'm guessing suggesting protein shakes and celery sticks isn't going to get popular appeal?

Doritos and vodka. Anything fancier requires driving, which typically means preplanning so the driving gets done BEFORE the vodka. Usually.

If it's appropriate for a football party, it's appropriate for a wargaming party. I've done anything from pizza to home made jalapeno poppers, mini tacos, etc haha

But beer is a MUST
