More pictures if the machine Gods will permit us. These are mostly from the 40k single miniature category.
It’s Golden Demon UK today. Here are some of the early entries. This is an unsorted and uncensored picture dump.
Games Workshop really went all out for the 40k 30th Anniversary display at Warhammer Fest this year. Games Workshop don’t have many of their old rouge trader models. Rarely accessed and highly protected archives indicate they where not included in the sale of the business many years ago, however it is something the servitors refuse to speak about. None the less by using some private collections by staff and fans, Games Workshop did manage to put together a good showing of these rare Rouge Trader models.
There were also a couple of older models in the Golden Demon Competition this year.
The first Ultramarines Captain Model
Warhammer World will be shutting for almost a week in September from the 24th to 28th. The mind boggles at what event could take so long? September was traditionally the home of GamesDay. Clearly at this point it’s too late to sell tickets to an event of that sort of magnitude. So the question remains what could the guys at Warhammer World be up to for almost a week? They are also advertising for model makers and painters maybe this is a big clue. Will we be seeing an expansion of the exhibition displays for the rumoured Horus Hersy board game? Or are we looking at a more dramatic remodelling to the centre? Maybe they will finally make the new entrance hall worth while. I’m afraid the only facts I know is that the Forge World displays and artwork prints which were visible from the gaming hall are now locked behind shutters, being only visible to those who have paid for entrance to the exhibition. This does mean the exhibition ends in the shop so something in the world has been put to rights. So there are now defiantly more painted models on display in your local Gamesworkshop than at Warhammer World, unless you pay for the exhibition.
Over and out
We have learnt this is an internal Games Workshop event which requires all tables to be removed. Obviously it’s not an internal games day.
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.
More to follow. Jon
