Sunday was the deadline for 2020’s Armies on Parade submission, because of the current global situation, digital-only for the first time. Coincidentally, it was also my first Armies on Parade entry. I entered in the Specialist Games category, and my theme was Necromunda Old vs New: My classic Escher gang clashing with a modern Goliath gang on a mix of classic Necromunda cardboard terrain and modern Sector Mechanicus scenery. Check out a shot of the full board after the jump.
And here is the complete board. Well, I’m not gonna lie, it’s a bit basic. Originally, I planned to build a proper 60 x 60 cm board out of foamboard with some texture and details, but when I heard that this year the event would be held online, I couldn’t bother and just used one of the grey gaming boards from the 9th Edition starter set. On the other hand, a cardboard board fits the cardboard terrain theme quite well, and I’m just proud seeing my own set of the classic cardboard buildings nicely painted and assembled, it’s a childhood (or teenage years) dream come true 😉
I also wanted to paint two more models for my Goliath gang, a stimmer and prospect, as well as update the remaining ten Escher models, and maybe even paint a bounty hunter or Underhive scum, but it is what it is. If you’re interested with more close up pictures of my Necromunda models and scenery, follow this link.
So who did participate in Armies on Parade this year? Post a link to your entry in the comments and I’ll have a look 🙂
