Along with the thousands of professionally painted miniatures and dioramas in the Warhammer World Exhibition, we show regular Guest Displays – Max Hazzledine is the latest hobbyist to loan us his Armies on Parade display for you to be inspired by.
The first thing which catches the eye about Max’s Armies on Parade display is the perfect colour contrast, with the rich deep red miniatures standing out against the warmly toned sand. This was a carefully made choice, with Max creating the board to make the most of his existing Ork miniatures. “One of the most satisfying moments was near the end, when adding highlights to the rocks after multiple washes, and I saw the board come to life from a new perspective. ”
“I wanted my army to be unique in some way, and when I first started collecting Orks about a year ago, I recognised all the little ways they can be different. My collection grew pretty quickly and the models here are some of those I’m most proud of as a hobbyist.” These models are certainly unique! Max’s Orks are a dream for conversion spotting, including such insanity as a looted flying Rhino, named ?Zappa Attak Jet?, which it takes a minute to spot is based on the tank, and not another usual flyer.
The looted Baneblade Killtank, named ?Big Bess? is one of Max’s most treasured Ork creations, “It’s one of the main driving forces behind my confidence to show off my models in events like Armies on Parade. ”
If you’re thinking about showing off your own models in Armies on Parade, Max has some solid advice after three years of taking part himself. “Focus on a faction that you enjoy, something that really gets you interested in the hobby. Then, be persistent, never give up, and eventually the results will come to you. Finally I’d say the most important thing is to have fun! Be it making the board, arranging your models, or showing off your models at the event, keeping it fun is what makes it memorable in a good way.”
Come and see Max’s display for yourself at the Warhammer World Exhibition, before it leaves in March 2019. Of course, you also get to see all of the other Guest Displays, thousands of our professionally painted miniatures, and 28 specially built dioramas!
