Firstly, my entry. As you could expect, it's Thousand Sons. I ended up going for mostly Thousand Sons, in perfect blocks of nine, supported by daemons, cultists, and various ancient war-machines.
- 10 Thousand Sons
- 10 Cultists (using 8)
- Terminator sorcerer
- Plus the board itself, which went through about three or four designs
Overall it was a great project to work on, so let's see how we did. On the day I saw the following entries:
- A classic/modern Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum force
- A small but swift Dark Eldar force
- Space Hulk ships, Imperial and Eldar
- Some retro-looking cave goblins
So, how did I do? Well.....drum-roll.......pause for effect.....
Yes, not expecting to win, and extremely optimistic for bronze, a silver medal was handed to me, based on the total in-store and online votes. Bronze went to the Dark Eldar force, but a deserving gold went to the guard army. It was a fantastic mix of retro Cadians, modern tanks, and a well assembled board made near-enough from scratch.
So, my first Armies on Parade, and my first medal in, well, anything. What about next year, you ask? Well, I have plans, You'll have to stick around to find out more.
More pictures from the day can be found on the Warhammer-Scarborough page, as well as some of the other entries I couldn't get pics for.
