In White Dwarf 218 long ago, I saw pictures of the Games Day 1997 display board, presumably now still in the Warhammer museum. The above image captured my imagination, and fueled my desire to build a buggy horde.

Massacre at Big Toof River (and link) was the name in the White Dwarf, check out the pictures.

The follow up to this battle was a report in a later White Dwarf called Last Stand at Glazer’s Creek, with some of Adrian Wood’s classic Waaagh! Grishnak Grimjaw collection. Check out the pdf for some insight into how 40K was long ago.
