We asked you guys to send us photos of your Armies on Parade entries, so we thought it only fair to go searching around the office to see how the forces around here were coming along as well. We found some lovely boards and armies in the works, and we’ll be sharing some of them with you over the next few weeks, so watch this space.
Below is a Tau Empire force from the Farsight Enclaves by Gregory Crooks. This is what he had to say about his work in progress:
“I decided to continue growing my existing Tau force for this years (my first) Armies on Parade, having started with just a Ghostkeel earlier this year for a painting contest at Games Workshop – Derby. Having seen previous years’ entries, I’m excited to try and tie everything from the board and terrain to the models themselves.
I’m basing my force on being the spearhead of a larger force led by Farsight and The Eight. These fearless commanders will drop in from low orbit while the rest of the force fans out behind them.
I’m really looking forward to putting together and painting The Eight, as each suit is so varied and they can be dynamically posed to match each of their battlefield roles. Other than that, I don’t have a plan yet for exactly what the final army will consist of. Although Farsight Enclaves are known for their battle suits, as a master tactician, I don’t think he would shun any aspect of war, so I still have the option to include a bit of everything.”
We’ll come back to see how Gregory’s entries are coming along closer to Parade Day.
