Checkout a great writeup of our recent Escalation vs. Stronghold Assault mega battle! The most fun I've had playing 40k in a while. To all the haters: don't knock it 'till you try it.
Here are a few more pics from my phone:
4,000 points per side and the game ran about as quick as most of the attic beer-hammer games we usually play. I ran 2,000 points of Dark Angels (Codex: Space Marines), Mark piloted a Warhound Titan, and his Grey Knights, and we pitted ourselves against Vin and his massive collection of fortifications and Blood Angels.
It. Was. Awesome.
We also forged a little narrative in the process: The sneaky Blood Angels found some evidence of ancient Dark Angels treachery, which they stashed away in a nigh-impenetrable fortress monastery. The only way the boys in green could every hope to keep the information from being disseminated to the High Lords of Terra was by convincing a contingent of Grey Knights that it was the Blood Angels who were corrupted, and in need of a Nemesis Force spanking.
Check out Attic Wars to find out who won!
