Armies on Parade: week 4

Armies on Parade is our yearly celebration of collecting Citadel miniatures, the perfect opportunity to build and paint a new army and show it off for all to see. No idea what we’re talking about? You need to have a chat with your local Games Workshop staff – they’ll be more than willing to fill you in on the details.

The entries in each store are voted on by the general public on Saturday 24th October, the Parade Day. The winner and runners up will receive a medal (made of solid metal, no less) for their hard work, not to mention the admiration of their peers.

You can find out more about Armies on Parade in the pages of White Dwarf where we’re following the progress of a team of modellers and painters who are busy building their own display boards and painting new armies to be featured on them.

Below you can see John Bracken’s Swarmlord, which he recently finished for his Hive Fleet Behemoth force. You can see a few of his other models lurking in the background of the shot. Apparently he’s got a whole lot of Gaunts to paint now.

But we’re not the only people working on our entries. Thilo Engels, a regular contributor to White Dwarf and What’s New Today, has started work on his entry for this year: an Adeptus Mechanicus force.

Thilo’s army will be led by this Tech-Priest Dominus. The anti-agapic solutions swilling about in the glass beakers on his back are especially well-painted.

Thilo’s display board will be an Imperial Strongpoint based around an Aegis Defence Line. He’s also painted this Plasma Obliterator turret for his board.

If you’re entering Armies on Parade this year, why not send us some pictures of your work? Who knows, it might be your models we feature next on What’s New Today or even in the pages of White Dwarf or Warhammer Visions.
