Golden Demon UK 2012

Games Day and Golden Demon UK is finished now, and it was very nice to be able to see the event, the authentic 100% nerdiest Games Workshop congregation. The day was intense and lots of stuff to do and see, very overwhelming. Regarding the stuff that concerns us, the Golden Demon contest, for those who do not know much about GD UK, I'll tell them that it is indeed the event with the highest number of participants in the world. The painting level is not as high as the ones we see in other events in Europe, and the style GW favours in their event is quite different from the one predominant in other countries. Probably this is one of the reasons why many of the painters we know in UK have not been attending the event this year. But let's go directly into the photos.

These are photos I took once the registration closed, only from the cabinets where the finalists where placed, and only of those miniatures that I found interesting for some reason. There were many many more but I'm just showing you the ones I liked from the ones I saw at that moment (there were some that were being photographed or judged at that time).

And these are the photos I took once the winners where separated from the rest of the miniatures. Obviously some photos are repeated from the last ones.

I too like the overall winner, but I liked a lot of the Bronze models too. No Bronze for duel?
