What a Way to Say Goodbye to Warhammer 40k 6th Edition

Now, this is going to be image heavy as opposed to text heavy. I played the massive game that I said I was going to with my Eldar, but the Tau player did not show up, so there ended up being an extra 1000pts of Space Marines and 1000pts of Eldar to make up the difference. I will write a small fluff bit for before and after the battle once I get around to it, but here are the pictures I took of the game. 8000pts of Tyranids (including two maxed out Endless Swarm formations) is a scary concept. We were outnumbered at least 6 or 7 to 1 and we came close to being overrun by turn 3. We did, however, manage to pull a victory out of the hat with a heroic defence by the Imperial forces (I did the very Eldar thing of completely abandoning them to pursue my own objective that I did not tell them, that objective being to steal the Tyranid objective…) and the world’s largest flank attack by the Eldar (seriously, I moved flat out for 3 out of 5 of the game turns to get where I needed to be). The game was Emperor’s Will with Dawn of War deployment using the 6th edition rules.
