Pictures of open competition entries at Golden Demon 2014
There were a few outstanding entires in the open competition which I didn’t manage to photo. Even thought there were less people at Golden Demon this year there were no less people crowding around the cabinets. All the open entires were good and deserve to be shown. As always there were some fantastic custom built creations and some off the wall entires.

Today is a sad day at Chaptermasters as we start on the last few remaining pictures from Golden Demon. Today’s are the Space Marines from the Squad Category. The good news is the Squad Category was one of the most popular categories so there are plenty more pictures to go.
First up we have a Black Chapter of Space Marines I can’t remember the name of, Black Consoles? Suggestions welcome. One thing is certain this is a Vanguard Veteran squad armed with power swords, lighting claws and the Sergeant carries a relic blade and storm shield.
Imperial Fist tactical squad
Looking like a Space Marine Squad should with many different armour plates and equipped with The Umbra Ferrox bolters, curtesy of Forge World.
Legion of the Damed
Classic sculpts from the masterful Julien Diaz. Probably the best Space Marine sculptor Games Workshop have ever employed. Please come back Julien, please come back.
Dark Angel Tactical Squad
The looks like the Work of Half God Studios’ El Wood. This Dark Angle Tactical Squad is lead by a classic Jez Godwin Metal Dark Angel Sergeant in Mkviii power armour.
Dark Angel Deathwing Terminator Squad
Unfortunately not a great photo of these ornately detailed Death Wing terminators.
The humble tank has had a hard life in 40k in recent years. There was the can opening edition of 40k known as 5th edition, then the event of hull points which both extended and shortened the life of tanks at the same time. Finally there was 7th edition which gave tanks a new lease of life, due to the reduction in armour piercing value of AP2 weapons. However at the same time there has been the introduction of Lords of War, Imperial Knights and Wraith Knights to the standard game table, which has quite frankly squated the place of the tank as the armoured bayomonth on the block. Still it’s nice to see people are still painting them for Golden Demon.
First up we have the lightest tank at Golden Demon, well not really a tank but there are not enough Jeeps to warrant a separate post. I believe this is a Forge World Tauros Rapid Assault Vehicle painted in jungle camouflage.
Next up is a Blood Angle Predator Infurnus.
A rather blurred picture of a Iron Warriors Land Raider
The was one of my favourite tanks. If you have a problem called the Forge World Spartan, painted in Crimson Fist Chapter Colours.
A stunning Forge World Imperial Fist Rhino
The Dark Angels chase the Fallen in this striking air brushed Rhino. This looks like the work of El from Half God Studios. We will be doing a feature on his work next year.
The lone Xeno entry: Tau Hammer Head with a Plasma Cannon Turret.
Today is Christmas Eve and like all respectable men I need to go and buy a lot of Christmas presents, so this will be the last pre Christmas 2014 post on Chapter Masters. Happy Christmas from Ben, Gareth and myself. I hope your Christmas is full of fun and joy and a little 40k.
There was no shortage of Contemptor Dreadnoughts in the 2014 Golden Demon competition. So let get right to these exquisite entires.
Sons of Horus Contemptor Deadnought Armed with plasma cannon and power fist. – Golden Demon 2014
Black Templars Crusading Contemptor Dreadgnought armed with power sword and storm shield – Golden Demon 2014
Spacewolves Contemptor Dreadnought Armed with Assault Cannon and Power Fist – Golden Demon 2014
Blood Angels Contemptor Dreadnought armed with Multi Melta and Las Connon- Golden Demon 2014
I would certainly be happy to have any of these as a centre piece to a Space Marine army. I find the Sons of Horus Dreadnought to be the most striking, while for me the Space Wolf Dreadnought holds the most interesting detail to peruse, however the Black Templar dreadnought features some outstanding conversion work and the the is the Blood Angels Dreadnought with much more subtle but still fine details. I’m glad I don’t have to judge Golden Demon, it would go on a lot later if I did.
Today marks the UK release of the Hobbit battle of five armies film it a bit of a break from the normal subject of this 40k cantered blog. I can think of no better time to publish our pictures from the Lord of the rings Category in Warhammer Fest’s 2014 Golden Demon competition.
In order we have Galadriel and Radicast PYO, Tauriel, Legolas and Gimli and finally Galadriel. The base on the Legolas is simple yet very striking in comparison to more intricate base on Tauriel. The purple robe on Galadriel is also very striking.
