Painting competition at Games Workshop Open Day

I was fortunate enough to make it to the Games Workshop 2019 open day at Warhammer World. It took me most of the day to work out where the painting competition was being displayed. I managed to get these rushed pictures as there were packing down the display.

I believe the LOTR entry, 2nd picture down, was the over all winner.

Sorry just doing a photo dump. The Ambull wasn’t in the competition, I just thought you might like to see it.

Golden Demon 2014 Diaroma

Diarima category is just as imaginative as the Duel category. In many respect’s the Duel’s big brother. Sometimes leaving the adversaries up to your imagination. This first picture below leaves nothing but the size of the Tyranid Hoard up for debate.
