Adam Walker is one of the latest hobbyists to loan us his Armies on Parade display for you to see in the Warhammer World Exhibition, and it’s an evocative blend of colour and narrative.
Adam’s idea was to create a story, and make the viewer think about where the lone Dreadnought is, and what it’s doing there. “The Harlequins are ambushing a Dreadnought, who has lost his way on a remote planet. Maybe he’s accidentally stumbled across a sacred space? The Harlequins are clearly not happy, jumping and dancing down from the rock canyon to assault the trespasser.”
Adam chose to use Warhammer Age of Sigmar scenery kits rather than Warhammer 40,000 scenery on top of his sculpted foam rocks. “They seem to fit the idea the Harlequins are protecting an ancient gateway or temple”.
There’s an impressive amount of freehand painting on the miniatures, including a Death’s Head month and skull faced clown on the Harlequin vehicles – each bike is worth a close look! Adam aimed for a slightly steampunk circus aesthetic on his Harlequins, trying to create leathery looking jackets and trench coats, teamed with pin-striped tights and complex swirls.
The Grey Knight Dreadnought has been converted using parts from a Blood Angels Furioso Dreadnought, and features more of Adam’s freehand painting adorning the front of it. Truly every miniature on this board is a labour of love.
Come and see Adam’s display for yourself at the Warhammer World Exhibition, before it leaves mid-January 2019. Of course, you also get to see all of the other Guest Displays, thousands of our professionally painted miniatures, and 26 specially built dioramas!
