Armies on Parade

Two years ago I won my local AoP competition with my Celestil Lions board. Admittedly I was the only person who entered (though word is 2 people turned up, saw mine and didn't bother to enter...) but I don't care I have a medal!

Okay, I do care a bit. That's why I'm trying again this year. I've settled on my Ultramarines as they are in vogue at the moment, and I'm going to set it on Calth, at a muster pre treachery. With rumours of the new 30k box set I hope that will sway public opinion in my favour.

I want to have as many of my coolest pieces on the board as I can so I'm going to have to use vertical space in order to achieve this. I plan on building a raised landing pad at the back which will have a bridge leading into the corner of a fortress. The landing pad will have my Thunderhawk, Guilliman and his honour guard. Manning the fortress tower will be my scouts whilst the master of signals will stand next to a comms relay and a Mortis dreadnaught. On the fortress wall will be my tactical squad marching down to the vehicle bay whilst manning the wall will be my rotor cannon squad. In the vehicle bay which will occupy the front left corner I'll have my terminators infront of the Spartan and my Sicaran next to that. I'll place my other characters scattered about the board. I want to try and get my Fire Raptor on the board, I thought about a 2 tiered landing pad but that might be a stretch...

As ever, I'll let you know how it goes.
