Shadow War: Armageddon

Games Workshop recently launched a new boxed game. Shadow War Armageddon, SWA for short. It is using Necromunda rules but it's basically 40K Kill Teams. I've never played KT. For that matter I've haven't played 40k since 2nd edition. So maybe 20 years???? Not sure.

Anyway, I was reading about it, and seems like it could be fun. Maybe not fun enough to buy, but then I saw the terrain. I am a sucker for cool model kits. Then I see that the Limited edition (I think) box set is cheaper than buy all the terrain kits separately. So fun game, awesome terrain, and cheap. I'm in.

Turn out the pre-order sold out in 3 minutes or something. Well crap. What the hell, I call the closest store and see if they have a copy. I fully expected to be laughed at. Wow they have a copy, "I'll be there in 5 minutes". Now I join a Facebook group and see all the setups people are putting together, and see people buying multiple sets. I need more terrain.

The terrain box sets are coming out, but almost double the cost of the box set. Maybe I can pick up another set. I call 2 more stores, laughed at the first time, then scored another box. This one came at a discount too!!! $100 instead of $130. I can sell off the extra bits and rules I don't need to really lower the cost of the game.

Now I have a ton of scenery to paint. This thread is all the cool images I've found on Facebook and around the web of setups. For inspiration. If you see a pic of your and want me to remove it, just leave a comment below.
