This was a great and funny Mexican army, with tacos and even a Piņata ahnging of one guy's back pack.

congratulations Brother, a well deserved second. It seems though that the contest was more about the armies rather than the boards. That wheeled ork army, while unique (almost - check your 10 year old white dwarfs for a speed freak gobbo army) and visually stunning, the board it was on was next to nothing, not even a patch on yours.

Thanks Japehlio, I think I went over the top though, I lost my control and made a diorama, not a army display, while Sam's Orks were on a display, besides that scratch build Stompa on roller-blades is impressive.

But I'm happy anyways.
