The Armies on Parade is not merely an event; it is a grand rite, a culmination of nearly a year of tireless labor, skillful painting, and strategic assembly – resulting in awe-inspiring legions upon glorious display boards. This endeavor is a challenge of the highest order, but the glory to be won is immeasurable.

Armies on Parade 2024 Comes with New Categories

Hearken, for new categories of competition have been decreed for this year 2024. Fear not whether you are a veteran of countless battles or a neophyte to the Warhammer universe – all may partake in this grand event!.

Armies on Parade 2024 Announcement

Individual Category

Champions of the Individual category shall present their armies, drawn from any game system, upon the blank canvas of a battle board or table. Here, the focus shall be solely on the army – no terrain shall cast its shadow upon these warriors.

Team Category

The Team category calls upon brotherhoods, families, or entire communities to unite in the creation of a show-stopping legion. Whether it be two comrades-in-arms, kinfolk, or a conclave of crafters, each shall contribute their might to this collective endeavor.

Display Board Category

The Display Board category beckons those who wish to demonstrate their mastery over the realm of terrain-making and diorama creation. One may also choose to compete in this category in addition to the Individual or Team categories.

Youngbloods Category

For the Youngbloods, those aged 13 to 16, a separate battlefield awaits. Participation requires the consent of a parent or guardian. These young warriors may also join the Team category, provided they march alongside a veteran aged over 16 – for example, a teacher leading a school’s Warhammer club.

Numerous incentives and prizes await those who dare to enter at their local store – with additional rewards to be won in both store-based and online ceremonies.

The final dates of this monumental event are yet to be carved into the annals of time, but the climactic store finales will be held in September, with the online Armies on Parade awards ceremony in October.
