Warhammer World has regularly changing Guest Displays, showcasing the amazing personal projects created by fans of the hobby, and we have another great Armies on Parade display with us – leaping from the pages of the Realgate Wars books, James Littler’s Hammers of Sigmar.
James has been a fan of the Stormcast Eternals since the launch of Warhammer Age of Sigmar, and his impressive Armies on Parade display includes at least one of every hero available at the time. His favourite model is the Lord-Celestant on Stardrake, “I’ve always found him to be a very striking model, and he works brilliantly with the Hammers of Sigmar colours.”
It took James around six day-long sessions to paint the army, using simple techniques to get great results. Much of it was painted with only a basecoat, a wash and a drybrush, with careful attention to keeping things neat.
“The idea behind the board was ancient celestial machinery” says James, and he created it from one of the Shattered Dominion board tiles, cut up and linked together with plasticard. The combination of ruins on the base and smooth curves floating above, both painted in the same strong colours, really help evoke an ancient yet arcanely advanced setting.
You can find out more about James’ display and the processes behind creating it in the December 2017 issue of White Dwarf.
Come and see this great display for yourself at the Warhammer World Exhibition, before it leaves in May. Of course, you also get to see the other Guest Displays, thousands of our professionally painted miniatures, and over 20 specially built dioramas!
