Armies on parade 2019
Armies on Parade is our yearly celebration of collecting Citadel miniatures, the perfect opportunity to build and paint a new army and show it off for all to see.
If you are unsure about what you need to do to take part then join us for Hobby Workshops where we will be able to offer help and advice on getting your collection Parade Ready. We'll also program some scenery and display building workshops in the lead up to Parade Day. Or, talk to any of the team - they are all happy to offer any advice they can to make Armies on Parade accessible to everyone.
Warhammer Townsville's Parade Day is Saturday 19 October - 10.00am-5.00pm. Armies on Parade is free to take part in, and to view.
Bring in, set up, and display your collection before 12.00pm. Signing up for Armies on Parade is recommended as that will ensure you’ve got a guaranteed spot on the day. Message, email or sign up in the store.
Between 12.00pm and 4.00pm all our store visitors will be able to vote for their favourite display.
5.00pm we’ll announce the winners!

Whether you draw inspiration from a story, piece of art, timeline entry or it’s based on a narrative of your own creation, this is the perfect category if you like to weave a story with your displays.
There will also be gold, silver and bronze awards given out on the day for the top three Armies on Parade entries in each store.
Please Note: We won't have any gaming area on the day - priority goes to Armies on Parade Participants - depending on the total number of Parade entries it could be closed to gaming - so please check with us - or better still just join in Armies on Parade.
Any winners may be invited to display some of their work as part of an exhibition in the Hall's display cabinets.
