Well! It took a long time to get this post together but here it is.. all the pictures we took of our Zone Mortalis Game Day on April 7th. A scenario was battled over called The Promethean Hulk in which Imperial Forces were tasked with stopping a space hulk at any cost to avoid it colliding with a strategically important planet. A good time was had by all, and a strong representation of many races and armies was observed; including Space Marines (Raven Guard), Dark Angels, Eldar, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, and even Tyranids (though they did not end up gracing the board).
The battle for the Promethean Hulk was preluded by several intercepts of communiques (to build up the intensity you know…) and finally with the full-blown mission special rules (see link below). We didn’t get to the 3rd mission as we’d ran out of time, but were able to finish up the 2nd scenario reasonably and have a great time. Check out the intercepted transmissions, mission rules, and the pics of the game day below, as well as a super-awesome Ork Battlewagon conversion by Sol at the bottom of the page. Check it out!

Another shot of the battle wagon. Deffcopta chassis for the gun sponsons. Brilliant!
