So this is what Jon has been doing for the last few months, he told me to write about it for 2 Days (!!!) to Dragon*Con:
Allright. So. Warhammer 40K involves the painting of lots of miniature figures to create armies, and then you battle these armies on a tabletop. A tabletop of war. That is all I can really say about it because I have never witnessed a game myself. Anyhow, here are some figures:
So Jon paints several armies, but the best are the Tyranids. They look like um, super-rabid crazy alien velociraptors, which is really exciting.
Um, there’s a song too, but you are not privy to it.
Jon also wanted me to show you an actual tabletop playing field. This is pretty impressive:
So, yes, that’s Warhammer 40K. People do play this at Dragon*Con, by the way, but I think Jon will just be an observer, not a participant. Also, free painting session! Fun times!
