Played in November 2010 at the Chorley wargames club (CACK)
Some of the pictures I took - great days gaming.
Pics of the event and other peoples armies
Some of the tables and gamers
A lovely Tyranid army
Marines - sorry that one was a bit fuzzy
Tanks of the Legion of the Damned
One of the CACK members armies, still WIP Blood Angels
