40Kegger 6 Army Showcase

This past weekend the 40Kegger Tabletop Wargames Club held it's 6th tournament event, 40Kegger 6. These events always involves 40K and kegs of beer. This year the event also featured a charity drive fundraiser for Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue!

It was a two-day event. The first day was a 1000-point sigle player tournament, with three games. The second day was a two game doubles event, with each player on a two-man team bringing 1500 points to the table (basically, an Apocalypse sized game).

The following are a selection of photos I took of the players' armies on the second day.

My personal favourite arny was Thurston's Astral Claws force, featuring loads of "Forge World" models.
