As promised, I'm pleased to premiere my Armies on Parade showcase video. This is my first video that I've made for the blog. I hope you like it, if you do like it, let me know. It might lead to more in the future. The more traditional format of pictures follow after the jump, as well as how I did in the competition. 

Well after all the hard graft, my vision of an Orc Fort board with recessed areas for regiments to fit into neatly is complete. It's my first ever armies on parade board and it was a lot of fun coming up with new solutions to the hobby. I've been painting minis since 1993 so a terrain board is an amazing change of pace, especially a scratch built one that doesn't use GW terrain. 

So, how did I do? 

I won! Look at my little smiley face holding a medal! In total there were eight entries so quite a big turnout. It was a public vote and I actually tied for first place, so it went to tie-breaker. Not sure how the tie-breaker was decided but the outcome was I won. There are pictures on the Tale of Painters Facebook page of the other entrants. 

Thank you for following my progress and all of your support. Hope you enjoyed the ride as much I did.
