Galaxy in Flames. I can't say enough good things about how well run the game was, and how much detail and excitement the scenario created. The easiest way to convey how awesome it was, is to say that my team and I got our teeth kicked in and still had more fun playing 40k then I have had in a long time. It was not a simple Apocalypse game. There were tactical cards played that could affect and improve units, there was a side table with a battle against some NPCs over an artifact was going on, it was non stop fun.
The game was based on points. Points were scored by holding objectives with models each turn and by capturing the object in the side game. The side game could only be entered by portals that would randomly appear in certain parts of the table and units had to run into them to get onto the side game.
On with the game!
The board is set up. It was three "eight foot by four foot" sections that equaled a really big place to play.
The Independent Characters, couldn't quite get his vehicles to fit in the trees, so they just got a tree hat.
