|Can ya guess the age???|
I had tried to get one of the custom sculpted cakes, but that proved to be something of a nightmare. In the end I just baked a red velvet cake and our friend Rob decorated it (he owns a DQ, so decorates cakes all the time). It all worked out though as the icon on the cake came straight off of Neverness' blog (which seemed to surprise him as well)!
|Here comes the pain...|
After cake and presents game night went on as per the norm, and my GF & I teamed up with 1k each of my Eldar and her Fem Fa'Tau (which worked out like a split force org), vs. Neverness' ancient Ultramarines and the appropriately enough, the old SM codex. We played the Emprah's will scenario, with the short table edge deployment.

Neverness took a bucket load of photos, so will probably do a battle report. So I'll just post the one highlight above. Kushial gave Neverness a nicely painted, metal Ultramarine dreadnought however as you can see above, the Fem Fa'Tau were not impressed, and on turn one decided it was 'First Blood'.
Another highlight of the game was a the various points where my Eldar were in close range, and paying the price for it. Whilst determining damage to my units, behind me I heard my GF mutter more than once: "I'm gonna fuck that shit up next turn...". lol, awesome!
Now why don't you all go and wish Neverness a good one!
