Here are all of the 40k Single Miniature entries I was able to get pictures of. As I’ve already stated the standard was amazing this year. While I had improved my own Golden Demon entry I could completely understand why it didn’t make the finals, maybe next year. There is a lot on the model I wasn’t happy with. I was glad non of the Krom Dragongaze mini’s won (Never enter your 1st idea). Most of the models below didn’t even make the finals.

Apart from it being a bit crowded getting to the cabinets the atmosphere was far nicer this year. In fact I think this was the most enjoyable and cheapest Golden Demon I can remember. There was no freebies for entering and only a certificate for making the finals this year. I guess that will keep out the rubbish next year. It was noticeable some of the better painters had not entered this year although other’s had come from across Europe. Last years winner managed 3rd and I didn’t see Painting Buddha either, although the evidence of his DVDs and you tube videos was everywhere. Some of the old crowd that had turned up, looked a little disappointed the community hadn’t turned out in force. I think there were around 300 tickets remaining. Living fairly locally, I’m not sure if the location was a big put off for many this year. The venue was far nicer, Here’s hoping for the the ICC next year (just wishful thinking, nothing more.)
