Games Day Chicago 2007 must have (possibly) gone down in history as having the greatest number of Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Primarchs on display.

The first Primarch entry is of Fulgrim of the Emperor’s Children by Chris Borer, who won the gold for Warhammer 40,000 Single Miniature.
His entry is followed by a whopping six(!) honorable mentions featuring the Primarchs from various Space Marine Legions, which adds up to close to 40% of the 18 known Primarchs.

Ferrus Manus of the Iron Hands by Nathan Comanse. My favourite among all the Primarch entries featured at Games Day Chicago 2007.

Lion El’ Jonson of the Dark Angels by Tom Schadle.

Rogal Dorn of the Imperial Fists by Angela Imrie.

Jaghatai Khan of the White Scars by Joe Orteza.

Alpharius of the Alpha Legion by James Craig.

Perturabo of the Iron Warriors by Shawn Welte.
BTW, the recently released Horus Heresy : Collected Visions book contains several illustrations of the various Primarchs including an awesome scythe- wielding Mortarion (Death Guard). Worth every cent if you love the imagery of the Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines or the Cult Mechanicus. Available in SG @ Paradigm Infinitium.
My top three for the non-Primarch entries
© John Daye
Tau and Space Marine Diorama (Rubble, Rubble, Toil & Trouble) – John Daye, (Honorable Mention) Open Category. Under attack from Tau gun drones, a Space Marine from the Ultramarines counterattacks with a mastercrafted wooden ladder
© Dave Pauwels
Femme Militant – Ex Inferis – Dave Pauwels, (Silver) Open Category. I wonder which GW game this miniature belongs to?
© Nathan Comanse
Krieg Macharius – Nathan Comanse, (Silver) Warhammer 40,000 Large Vehicle/Model. Finally something different other than the usual Leman Russ tanks, a Macharius Heavy Tank with dual Vanquisher cannons (the cannons look different from the Forgeworld version)
BTW, I found Tyranid player Bill Kim’s blog while randomly browsing through Technorati. Bill also happens to be the winner for the Best Overall and Best General categories at the Chicago 2007 Grand Tournament. Read his battle reports starting with #1 here
