Hi everone

 

Though I would post a topic here as well as the Space Wolves area.

 

Well today though out the UK, ever Games Workshop store is holding Armies on Parade. Where the winner of each store get to take there army down to Games Day.

 

For me I think this is a brillaint idea. I enjoy see other armies that are really nicely painted &/or converted. Though I may not collect this or that army, it still offer a lot of idea. It why I like attending tournaments as well & it why I like come on the fourm. Really get fed up of people moan about the hobby, why can we not enjoy it for what it is, models, gaming with friends & haveing a laught as it a hobby.

 

I fully support armies on parade for Games Day. This is one place you can pretty much count me spend my time that during the UK Games Day event as I am alway looking to try out new conversion & get ideas.

 

Anyway.

 

I just return from my local Games Workshop store where my Space Wolves have won, to be taken down to Games Day UK on 25th Sept

 

For my own display board I though I would theme it around my Space Wolves background, when they hit the planet Asgard VII Prime & trying to gain a foot hold or a base to work from. Base upon my background I use for my own Space Wolves force for the tournaments & like my Iron Warriors, it a force I care about & as such like to get as much detail on theme, conversion & painting.

 

Here a bit from the SW background

 

I remember as many had foreseen, a great evil descending on Asgard VII Prime. Those that once knew peace now knew only war. With their homes destroyed by the foes of the Imperial, hope faded & the population were led into the shadow of despair. Asgard VII Prime was left defenceless.

But there was salvation, a light in these darkest times. They arrived from the sky, those warriors of the mighty Space Wolves, warriors who can set fear into the very heart of evil.

We fought, we fought for our dead, we fought for the very earth we stood upon, we spilt their blood, and we fought for the Imperial, for Russ & the All Father.

We may be few & our enemies many, yet so long as there remains one of us still fighting, one who still rages in the name of justice & truth, then by the All Father, Asgard VII Prime shall yet know hope.

Some of the detail from poster, broken glass & many other can be seen though out the board. I want this to be a city that it people have left, it been hit badly by the way on Asgard VII Prime.

As well as theme the board around the battle scene/background of my Space Wolves. My other aim was to pretty much fit my 1750pts tournament force onto here + extras. Like my Wolf Guard Battle Leader who I use during the 40k Double tournament back in Feb, then there my Wolf Priest who I made for my store trip down to Warhammer World in Nottingham.

 

While I made one new model being a Lone Wolf. I just purely made the Lone Wolf as though I don't tend to use them. They are great in regard to there background & also the model side they offer. Just being a single model I though he'd be cool for fill in gaps on my board

For the Lone Wolf I use the battle damnge from White Dwarf 374 where Nick Bayton use it on his Blood Angels Battle force set.

 

So yes, if your going to Games Day UK, make sure to keep a eye out for this.

:D Wow you are good! Adding the broken glass to the buildings was a very nice touch. Is it possible to get close up pics of the Hqs, and dreadnoughts in a white back ground? I'd like to see the details you did ;) Btw are those legion of the damned in the 8th picture?

Great news, and a fantastic looking army ;) Looking forward to playing them at Counter-Attack! in October.

 

Thanks Dave

 

If you going to go to Rapid Fire??, then you'd also see the display board as that the only tournament so far I will be take this, beside Games day :D

 

Btw are those legion of the damned in the 8th picture?

 

Yep there Object marker. So in the heat of a game I do not pick up my object by mistake. I know since there Legion of the Damned, not to pick them up. Also tie in with my army background & it the only legal way to take Legion of the Damned which I am a big fan of there background & with the models. Also they are base on a old GW art work which has two Legion trooper dragging a Blood Angel away from a hoard of Orks.

Shame - I don't think I will make Rapid Fire (thanks for the heads-up on the tickets, btw). I am taking my HD Camcorder to Counter-Attack!, so hope to get some good army footage there.

 

Cool :D Just let me know when your aim to be that the Stirling club & I can arrange to bring the display board if you wanted to see it in the flesh/photos for your blog?

 

Can't belive the ELG tournament is a week after Games Day as well. But sadily not have the display board due to travel by train for this. Had to get a lift into my local GW today & pick up.

Thanks

 

Just been relax with Space Marine after finish my Armies on Parade

Nearly complete the game..... I hate bomb squigs!!!!! There the bane of my life!

 

Is it possible to get close up pics of the Hqs, and dreadnoughts in a white back ground?

 

I do have photos kicking about. Best bet just to look around what topics I posted since Sept last year for the HQ's & for the Dreadnoughts it would be around March. I'll try search for photos but will not be until tomorrow (11.20pm here in Scotland).

That's a real sweet army you got there man. It's clear you've put a lot of time and effort in the display board as well

 

Thanks. Been working on the board since May.

 

May - Bought all the stuff that was needed for this board & general planning how I wanted this all to look & how many pts I wanted to fit.

June - Pretty much building everthing, make sure the building all fitted together.

July - Spent Sundays painting the buildings

Aug - Glue everthing together, getting the sand on, undercaoting & just general tidy up. Find the poster, etc...

Sept - Spent this week just tidy up everthing. In fact I was still finish off so area this moring in my local GW around 10.30am.

 

Just between this I had a lot my own project/armies, painting armies for other people & getting my Space Wolves ready for the Throne of Skulls tournaments.

:)

 

Thanks Phil, yes be the second event you'll seen my Space Wolves (40k double). Games Day & meet people, all come down to if they bump into me I'll happily talk to people. Don't tend to do any fourm mets up, but as said if people bump into me I'll be more than happy to talk with people.

Saying this, before the event start should be easy to spot me due to the display board ^_^ or see me that the Armies on Parade area.

In reference to the name "Asgard VII Prime", is the name of the system Asgard VII?

 

Thus planets are Asgard VII Secundus, Asgard VII Tertius?

 

Just sound cool when doing the background for my Space Wolves for the tournament, not much more though on it beyound that & because I was playing the PS3 game Viking: Battle for Asgard during the time of writen my background for my Space Wolves. Sort of where this come from if people have seen the diffrent trailers from the game, just edit to be more 40k/Space Wolves

 

I remember as many had foreseen, a great evil descending on Asgard VII Prime. Those that once knew peace now knew only war. With their homes destroyed by the foes of the Imperial, hope faded & the population were led into the shadow of despair. Asgard VII Prime was left defenceless.

But there was salvation, a light in these darkest times. They arrived from the sky, those warriors of the mighty Space Wolves, warriors who can set fear into the very heart of evil.

As said just few video from this game. Just if it a army like my Iron Warriors, both my Iron Warriors & Space Wolves are my favrout, also Black Templars & I like to have name/none facless army. Ever unit will have a name, Champion or Wolf Guards will also have a name.

Like wise add planet show where there base/fighting, what the planet like, who are they fighting?? More to help with the model side & converting since that the part of the hobby I enjoy. My Iron Warriors attacking a Black Templar fortress, I'll need to check the background to rememeber the world base it on. As such there base will have broken up bits to rep the fortress as well as the dead Templars.

 

Same will happen when I collect a new version of Black Templars.

 

As said just merely the name I wanted to use for my background as a few tournament request a bit of background for your army & because of playing Vikings Battle for Asgard on the PS3. For Armies on Parade I just wanted to rep this with my Space Wolves getting a foot hold. As for Armies on Parade I belive the board should tell a story about your army if it going down to Games Day. Prime part mainly came while watch Transformer 2 on DVD.

Then next year when I start on my brand new Iron Warriors force (mark ten year of collecting & move from inks to wash) it'll be all base on the planet I have on there background.

I wasn't wondering why you picked a name or that name specifically, I just found the name odd for both having VII (7th) and prime (1st) in the same name. If the star system is Asgard VII (7th star system with the name Asgard) and the planet is the Prime (1st / primary) of said star system then it makes sense. Otherwise it is basically like saying the world is both the 7th and 1st of the star system (which is odd). :P

  • 2 weeks later...

So Games Day UK has been & gone now & my Space Wolves went down for Armies on Parade.

 

Sadily I do not have any photos due to lossing my camera on the way back home, which has really :( me off & it took a lot for me to hold the Wulfen with in me when I got home. Bare in mind I'd been awake for over 30 hours, 7am Sat, left 12am with my local GW store arrive home 12am on Sunday night.

 

But though I do a little post.

 

First up thank to Chris, writer of Battle for the Fang novel for taken the time to check out my Armies on Parade board. Was really cool & was good getting that quick talk about Battle for the fang & exsplain my board to yourself. Like wise thanks for sign my novel & codex Space Wolves.

 

With a replcament camera being sorted. I am going to try get some photos taken soon, as there was some stuff I did not show. For exsample, with the poster there was a few like Graham McNeill novel Killing Ground or Chris Battle for the Fang front cover made into poster. As I like add these detail, to see if anyone will notice them.

 

If anyone was that Games Day & took photos of my Armies on Parade, please feel free to post them here or a fourm I am a memeber off.

Having seen the board on the day I have to say it was outstanding, great detail but sadly not quite the epicness (word?) of the necron piece but Really respect that this is your gaming army with a display board rather than a custom made army to go on display, which, in my opinion, is what this catergory should be about, if you know what I mean.

 

Plans for next year?

The board was for Armies on Parade which was last week that Games Day UK as said above/this topic. Though I would take the board along to the local tournament & will also be going to my own gaming club tournament in four weeks. Sholto (Dave) on here has taken a video of the board & hopeful has it in clear detail, this should be up on his blog soon & get that link, possible tomorrow, as well as film the tournament during the day.

There a tournament report kicking about on the fourms.

 

Plans for next year?

 

Keep that to myself right now. But will take part. As said I fully support Armies on Parade. Allow you to see cool armies to get idea for future collecting or to use idea on a current army you collect. End of the day this is what I like, seen cool armies full of conversion or general looking cool. It why I like going to tournament & why my aim when I go alway on the army building/painting side because want to be notice for the work I put into my conversion.

 

As said just get fed up of people being negative toward the hobby & those where negative toward Armies on Parade when they where not enter them self.

 

But yes I will be enter my store next year. Got a lot of idea & how I want this to look. Also learnt a lot from this year in term of carry my board & army down to Games Day.

 

Really respect that this is your gaming army with a display board rather than a custom made army to go on display,

 

Reason for this is I also wanted this display board to be able to go to tournament as shown above. End of the day I do not want the board to over shadow my army, it easy for people to let there board over shadow there armies & it take over. I want people to notice all the conversion work, all the viking runes I've painted on there shoulder pads.

I want the focuse to be on everthing, not on one area. As why the Killing ground poster or Battle for the Fang & why never posted these as I wanted to see how many people would notice them.

 

Also my Space Wolves have been my tournament force so why not as it a army I put a lot of time (over a year) in converting ever model. Same will happen for my next army for next year.

You can now see a Video take by Sholto (Dave) from the ELG tournament by here

 

 

Just heard the joke some people made during the tournament about me painting my board & Space Wolf army the night before the tournament, a rep that follow me for years B)

 

Basicly to put this on record. I am know to paint though armies in a short amount of time, to record. I would like to list them, but there way to many.

 

Here one exsample from Sholto blog from a year ago when we had a practise game for a tournament. It was the day after I painted a Blood Angel army for my friend who was going to Throne of Skulls with me in Nov last year

QUOTE

The man who can paint an entire Blood Angels army in the time it takes me to wash my brushes (approx a week, if you’re wondering – I like clean brushes).

 

Or from Ross who attend ELG last year

Ross ELG Counter Attack 2010 battle report

QUOTE

Best army went to Jamie Farquhar - his Space Wolves can be seen above. Jamie's work is prolific and of an extremely high standard. I faced his Iron Warriors at Rapid-Fire Stirling last year, which also saw him take home the Best Army award

 

The person in charge of the tournament try joke with my oppent that some terrain was to rep marker when my tanks where destroyed. Only for me to bring out a bags with base to rep blast/when my tanks are destroyed as when a tank get a 6, your ment to leave a marker to rep where the tank destroyed & it act as a bit of cover. Also look cool model wise.

Just it a bit like college teacher wind me up saying the burger van ran out of bacon, only for the staff to have my roll & square sasage (Scotland food, breakfast like a burger, but not a burger) with bacon ready for me as they know me to well down there, what time I'd be there & my order, left him speachless & was his story during the end of the year college show.

 

So just though exsplain a bit on this & just because I find it funny my rep as a fast painter follow me where ever I go. It like how my friends from my local GW store alway laught that the amount of people who seem to know me from tournament, cover our local GW store (one man store) or going to Games Day walk about or when our store bus stop.
