What's On Your Table: Armies on Parade Submission



Tonight for What's On Your Table we are looking at Rich's Armies on Parade entry.


Hello,
I am working on my Armies on Parade entry this year using my Imperial 
Guard. I would be interested in any suggestions on what I can do to 
improve my entry.

  1. Looking realy cool. One thing that always helps are the little details and things you don't necessary spot first time round but realy help to tell a story.
    In this case I would start with something like a medic treating wounded in the right hand trench (along with some dead under muddy white cloths), other touches could include objects in the trenches to make them look a little more 'lived in', letters home pinned to a board, ammo crates with a cup or some playing cards, Propaganda leaflets, discarded equipment, a couple of graves behind the trench line.
    The great thing about most of that is you can create a lot of the details via printed pictures to get the small scale cards etc, just print on a laser printer so ink won't run when you weather it.

    1. Thanks for the input. Really like the idea of the propaganda posters. Thinking of one based on the "Keep Mum, she's not dumb" WW2 one using a Slanesshi Daemon.

  2. Great job! I noticed the one tank has some bright yellow on the hatch and cannon.. you should use some of that on each of the other tanks to unify the army better as well as helping stand apart from the scenery/diaroma as the other models get a bit lost in the backgrounds (i understand they are intending to be camouflage but you don't want them hiding so well in a display piece like this) using one or two bright colours as "spot" colour common throughout the units will not just tie everything together but also make it "pop" from the environment helping peoples eyes to naturally draw to the models and "see the trees in spite of the forest" so to speak ;-)
