This Necron army from armies on parade at Games day 2013 seems to be fighting among themselves for some reason, perhaps it’s because they are confused at the colour of their gauss blasters with the Death marks preferring blue compared to the green of the rest of the army.
I really liked the inclusion of a very old relic those of you that remember Warhammer 40,000 second edition will remember that the Orks had access to imperial weapon’s the plasma pistol seen above was one of such weapons that came with some of the Ork models.
In the bottom right hand corner of the board are some warriors that have crawled through the sewer to get inside the ruins after a Canoptek Wraith had burst its way through. their poses would almost make me feel like their metal skeletons could actually feel the cold as they appear to be shivering. it is however a good use of excess parts from the ghost/doomsday ark kit. as he has set his up as a dooms day ark as seen below.
Dooms day Ark
I also like how the scarabs have been based, also the excellent use of terrain used acros the board with the imperial cities ruins kit been used the Sky shield landing pad and also a gun emplacement base. Well done to who ever put this army together.
This Blood angel Contemptor Dreadnought was entered into Games day 2013 Golden demon, in the Warhammer 40,000 vehicle category. The Dreadnought has been armed with two twin linked auto cannon. Behind the Blood Angel Dreadnought is a World Eaters Dreadnought, which has been armed with two power fists for brutal close range assault.
At the time of writing this post Games workshop have not yet released any details for Games days in 2014. This could this spell disaster for this years’ Golden Demon and Armies on parade. After the poor attendance and feedback some people are speculating that Games day may not go ahead in 2014.
Have you or anyone that you know started work on entry for either Golden Demon or Armies if Parade 2014? How will you feel if Games day 2014 doesn’t happen? One thing is certain the editor of Warhammer visions will have a harder job finding content for the magazine, as will we finding content for Chapter Masters.

This Entry from Games day 2013 Golden Deamon from the open catergory depicts a sole survivor of a downed Tau Piranha being rescued by a mixed squad of Kroot carnivores and some tau Fire warriors, supported by a very well converted Shadow sun model. The diorama is entitled “Black Piranha down” from what I assume is a play on the film “Black hawk down” I must say though the Piranha doesn’t look very black and I don’t see any Somalians shooting at the Tau. Joking aside though it must have taken some doing to achieve such a nicely converted and painted diorama.
