Armies on Parade 2015

Armies on Parade is a celebration of collecting and painting Citadel miniatures, your opportunity to build and paint a new army and present it on a beautiful display board of your own making.

Anyone can take part in Armies on Parade. All you need to do is build and paint an army and take it in to one of our stores on October 24th – the Parade Day. It’s that simple! The only restriction is that your army needs to fit in an area no larger than 2' by 2'. Many use this space to create a display board for their entry. It’s a great opportunity to build and paint some scenery and it makes your army look even more epic. Here you can see three entries from last year’s Armies on Parade competition, perfect inspiration for the sort of armies you can create.

Over the next 12 weeks, a team of intrepid modellers and painters will be sharing progress on their own entries in the pages of White Dwarf, starting with issue 79, out Saturday. Alongside pictures of their latest creations, they’ll also be sharing handy tips and hints on how to make your army and display board look even more impressive.
