Note: We'll be adding the pictures taken as they come in, so check back over the next few days.
A pre-battle conversation between two participants while having breakfast featured talk of tactics and rules. The new Adeptus Moostartes were used as an example.
This table was painted by Riverbend specifically in time for the Walk.
Chaz (middle), the Riverbend manager, just chilling with the guys.
The new ruins were also painted up in time for the event, while a TOC member admires the battlefield.
I think there was an earthquake coming. And the Phantom, which didn't get to hit the field, is newly registered.
Shadow's Titan Guard even made an appearance.
She'll be sporting new colors later, but Phoenix was certainly a sight.
And Magna Avem was also a beautiful fixture of the day.
Shadow's new Secutarii Hoplites, painted by Rene (a friend of Shadow's), looking good in their debut.
And Chaz's own Knight Banner! Newly registered as well.
The dice officially dropped with the defenders' Legate hard at work thinking about what to do.

The defenders really didn't seem inclined to hold the city with a gun line. They sallied forth, meeting the forces of Legio Kurogane and their Knight and Wraithknight allies.
While this potential duel loomed on the horizon, it didn't develop until late in the game.
By the time the smoke cleared, several calls of "Engine kill!" had been said, Banners decimated or crippled, and Titan weapons with new scorch marks from repeated firing. The attackers won a narrow victory, but the game was only a means to the fun. We'll have more pictures for you as they come in, but we can tell you that there was a lot of pizza eaten, plenty of laughs, a great time, and a lot of friendships made.
Rose sent in her own photos from the event for us to share with you.
So serious. I smell tactics being though over.
The Eldar came out to play!
Towards the end of the battle, not a lot of the attackers' models were still in the back.
A swift advance at the start of the game.
So many Knights protecting the defenders' zone.
