The idea of “live-action” Warhammer 40K is itself so ambitious that somebody needs to give this guy and his buddies a medal just for trying. Check out Flickr user Lt.E.Watt’s photostream to see some more of the amazing props he/they have built to run their games. Blood for the blood god! Skulls for the skull throne! Spleens for the spleen pond! [via Propnomicon]

    And what is an Imperial Guardsman doing with a bolt pistol? Where is your issued lasgun, soldier? Do you think that perhaps the techpriests erred when they issued it to you instead of this contraband bolter? Perhaps the EMPEROR guided them poorly? Do you believe that you should have been one of the Emperor’s Space Marines instead? Is this your heresy, soldier?

      Ahh, here is your lasgun.

      Carry on. Eternal vigilance is the duty all owe to the Imperium.
