Default Fully Painted 40,000 point 40k game (Tyranids vs Imperium)

A game that was played locally. I sadly couldn't be a part of it, but it looks like good fun:

That's pretty cool. I played in one game of equivalent size during 2nd ed.

That looks pretty intense, I've never seen that many points on the table before. I'll have to have a butchers later on.

I would love to be a part of something so amazing. When the 'nids were released as plastic in 3rd (?) my local GW had a big event where everyone brought a squad of the Imperium and this basically happened, but I had a mere Tactical squad (dieseled with every upgrade of course thanks to the ridiculous rules of 2nd/3rd/whatever edition this happened in)....I could have supplied half the Imperial force now!


....though it wouldn't be nearly as painted as this

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

That must be absolute pandemonium haha

Someone needs to blow up a pyrovore to take advantage of that RAW rule where every unit on the board gets hit with a bunch of S3 hits when the pyrovore gets instant death-ed

What that's fantastic. The board was very nicely put together, particularly the scratchbuilt and lit board, the armies looked wonderful and the company seemed good!

My sole recommendation for anyone filming a team based apoc game would be to get a plug in microphone for their camera in order to reduce the amount of noise pollution.

Fantastic looking game though!

*sniffles* It's... beautiful. Both armies are fully painted. Usually only mine is when I play, and it makes me sad.

Looks great, we have a houserule that all models taking part in an apocalypse game receive a -1 to Ws,Bs and front armour if unpainted to rep how embarrassed the model would be for being naked on the battlefield . Painted requires 4 colours. It gives people more incentive to get them done.

Show your buddies how awesome a fully painted game is to shame them into painting?

Well, my customers have gotten the (correct) idea from me that they can play with smaller than full armies and still have a great time, but models should be painted when they hit the table. So we have a lot of 1000-point armies around that are painted, but there are only a couple completely painted armies that are above 2000 points, and those all belong to me. That being said, everyone around here continues to build their armies and paint their armies, so there will be a day where this is a reality in my store. But, it's probably another three to six months down the road. It's something great to look forward to.
