Haemonculus Coven Display Board for Armies on Parade (Flesh Friday)

So, as is usually the case, I realized on about September 14th that Games Workshop's in-store Armies On Parade event was happening in a month. This, really, should be the one event that is marked on my calendar and I work towards all year. I don't actually play that much 40k, and mostly do all this conversion and painting work as a means of seeing a concept through to actual models. If I inspire some folks along the way, or encourage them to try to do more with their models, we'll that's great.

But Armies on Parade is pretty much the best possible place to showcase the kind of work I do. 

However, I always realize it's coming up late in the game, and don't have enough ready in time, and blah blah blah.

This year is different.
With only a month's notice of the event, I sat down with Brother Pink, counted up the models I had painted, and realized I could make a halfway decent showing of my Haemonculus Coven of the Unmarred. What ever hesitancy I had was cleared up when both Brother Pink and Mike Onyszczak from Games Workshop Yonge & Lawrence in Toronto BOTH kicked me in the ass and told me I needed to make this happen.

And it's a good thing they did since I wound up taking home a silver medal!
I will be doing a more full some post on the WiP for this board and how it came together, but, for now, I wanted to share some quick photos of the completed board as it appeared at Armies on Parade in October.



  1. Congrats on the very much deserved medal! Its nice to see everything laid out together on the display.

  2. Thanks Eli! The event was great motivation to get it done, and I think I really need events like it to light a fire under my butt to finish large swathes of models.

    Next up, might go to. My first tourney.
