Games Workshop posted the results and photos of the annual Games Workshop miniatures modelling and painting contest known as Golden Demon at Games Day Altanta in Apr 2007. Below are some of my favourites in random order.

I’ve been a fan of the gas-mask wearing Imperial Guard troops like the Death Korps and the similiar-looking Steel Legion after seeing Adrian Smith’s illustration of the clash between the Steel Legion and Orks during the battle for Armageddon (see below).

I seldom like models with painted faces because I find that few models and miniatures can get the face and eyes to look realistic like this magnificent model of a Night Lords Daemon Prince. BTW, he does look like Death Knight Arthas from Warcraft 3, no?

Simply amazing stuff. I love the detail of the orc’s armour as well as the elaborately gory standard

Somehow these models remind me of the macabre Nurgle Carnival of Chaos. (UPDATE: Actually these are the actual Mordheim Carnival of Chaos Warband miniatures, oops … Thanks, e) Read a wonderfully-illustrated short story about the Carnival of Chaos on the Mordheim page (scroll, scroll, scroll …) View photos of his entry at the honorable Mentions page.

Another jaw-dropper with the exquisite detailing on all the models in his entry.
