Armies on Parade 2019

#ArmiesonParade has been and gone now, but I'm still ferrying my Tyranids back home from my staging post at work. So, how was it for me? I have to admit despite not being able to be instore I loved seeing twitter and Facebook explode with boards on the Saturday and Sunday. So, much so that come MOnday Facebook was so convinced that my sudden spike in sharing folks content was unusual it actually locked me out of my account thinking it had been hacked by a bot! Anyway, the quality of hobby was excellent and I even saw someone post a Warhammer Underworlds tile with a few warbands on it as their entry - the exact example I hoped for. Sadly I saw one person report they were turned away because they hadn't arranged their space in advance, such a shame as it was a tiny display, featuring just the main characters from Blackstone Fortress, a shame but we did get to see it online.Manchester Warhammer took pictures of their entries, sadly I have none, but coincidentally did not reveal who had won anything, just that th

Join in Armies on Parade 2019

Last year I attempted to get an article published on Warhammer Community about Armies on Parade #armiesonparade. There's no guarantees with these things so I've managed to stop crying about it 😉 and thought I could at least share it here to once again reaffirm how much I enjoy taking part and if you are in this hobby and have painted some figures you should too! Saturday 19th October is Parade day get on down to your local store and join in, here's why:Greetings, I’m Dave Weston and I’ve been hobby blogging for the last 8 years over at Confessions of a 40k Addict. The Warhammer Community Team has indulged my request to champion my favourite hobby event of the year – Armies on Parade. I’m sure most are well aware of Armies on Parade, perhaps even dabbled but for those that don’t it is the biggest hobby event in the world! Each year thousands of hobbyists across the Mortal Realms/Galaxy/Middle Earth (delete as appropriate) showcase their armies in their local Games Workshop. What follows across social med

Moar Armies on Parade 2018

Armies on Parade 2018 has been and gone and as mentioned I couldn't actually get in store on the day due to family commitments. On Monday I nipped in to collect my figures and there was still this board on display so I had to get some pictures as it was absolutely stunning.I think this might have come second overall and it's one of those armies that when you see it you think, yes I would love to play/have and army like that - even when you don't even play that game!Such attention to detials and all the little touches, like the static grass, clumps of flowers and mushrooms.From my social media browsing I felt AoP 2018 was a much more pleasant affair. Plenty of small scale Parades being celebrated alongside amazing dioramas. In fact I only really saw one negative comment because someone felt they'd been misled about the date being this weekend and so hadn't been able to Parade with a board they'd been making for more than a year or two. Not entirely sure why they couldn't now Parade it in 2019 but it seemed the

Review and video: Armies on Parade 2018 in Berlin

Like every year I invite you to read a review and to watch the video from Armies on Parade. This time - 2018 in Berlin Germany =) For those impatient - the video is at the end of this post.Jak co roku zapraszam Was na relację z Armies on Parade, tym razem 2018 i z aż trzech salonów Games Workshop w Berlinie =) Dla niecierpliwych - na końcu posta znajduje się krótki filmik prezentujący wszystkie wystawione prace. The first one was Games Workshop at the Frankfurter Allee 96. It was Armies on Parade day so I took with me an improved display of my Wood Elves - I replaced some of the old models with some recently painted miniatures. I won't write about my work here because I entered the competition just for sport and to see my display again among many other fantastic displays.Na pierwszy i do tego zmasowany ogień poszedł Games Workshop na Frankfurter Allee 96. Wziąłem ze sobą udoskonaloną makietę Leśnych Elfów, na której w miejsce niektórych starych modeli postawiłem niedawno uko

Armies on Parade 2018

Everybody knows I'm a huge fan of Armies on parade so you'd be forgiven for assuming I wasn't entering this year as I've been unusually quiet. There's a number of reasons for this, firstly I'd written an article about AoP for the Warhammer Community team covering many of my previously expressed views on the essence of the event. Sadly it wasn't published but I'll keep on trying.Secondly I haven't actually entered anything new. You may recall my local GW Southport closed down and last year the Free Radical Collective were my entry. This year they've ambushed the GW Manchester Arndale and this makes me feel rather odd. I'm genuinely disappointed I haven't anything 'new' to enter. I've been through this before when my third time with the 'nids was disparaged because it was their third time and it was deemed 'lazy'. Yep, we sensitive souls cut deep.The fact is though this Army is Parading in front of a new audience and it is all about showcasing your army. I'll say it until I'm blue in the face [even at the risk
