Spring Offensive: Photos
Spring Offensive, the follow-up to Fall From Grace, was an informal gathering of 40K gamers from around the United States, held at the Borderlands store in Greenville, South Carolina, on April 20-22, 2001.

Lee-man Russ. Get it? This guy drove 500 miles so he could paint someone else's army?
In between games, players relaxed and enjoyed Borderlands' fine hospitality and friendly atmosphere.

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE this tank
