Games Day 2001
What you'll see here are tables and scenery from Games Day, Games Workshop's annual convention in Baltimore, Maryland. One of my favorite things about Games Day is just wandering around the hall checking out the awesome scenery that the GW staff create. You just haven't played 40K until you've done it on a table with well-made scenery. I can't explain exactly why, but good scenery makes the game much better. 

Here are some photos of a few of the more creative and unusual 40K tables at Games Day 2001. Perhaps you'll get some ideas for your own terrain projects. 

Jungle terrain

Arctic table
Above: If the jungle's too hot for you, chill out on this winter table. 
At Games Day 2001, Games Workshop ran a massive mega-battle called 
"The Hunt for Russ," where Tyranids invaded the Space Wolves' icy home, Fenris. 

In addition to what you see here, the GW staff had models of giant mammoths 
and abominable snow monsters wandering the fields. 
Plus they liberally threw white confetti to represent falling snow. 
 

Tyranids--ICKY!
Above: Speaking of Tyranids, they had their own table, modeled to 
represent the interior of a huge Bug ship. Check out all the ooogy tentacles, 
slime pits, pods, and other squishy things. 

See those amber-colored orbs protruding out of the purple structures 
in the background of the photo? In each one you can see the 
silhouette of a Nid waiting to hatch. Ewwwwww....
 

Necron stargate

Naval battle near an oil rig
