The model is excellent, but it makes one wonder...

What aspect of the model, do you think, kept it from advancing further?

:shock: That didn't make it through the first heat, what ever those judges are smoking I want some, they must have been higher than a kite when they saw it.

Its real nice Wraithlord, love the eye on his arm.

Shame about the GD, but you painted it for yourself really so must be well chuffed.

The Golden Daemon has got more and more difficult in the UK over the last 10 years.(cannot speak for the US or anywhere else but presume its the same.)
To the point I no longer enter. :( (One day I'll be back!)

If Golden Daemons are your dream Wraithlord (or any other Canuks out there) Go and look at this site Canadian GD team

I know of Starks333 from Astro and to say the least he is damn good.

Wraithlord i really really like your work there dude. Unluck about GD but ike you said the competition is incredibly tough these days. Long gone is any chance of me repeating my formor glory of making the final cut and getting a special nomination in the young bloods catagory (think it may well have been the very first time they did it aswell).

I was told that the primary reason was the fairly thick layering I did, ie not nearly smooth enough with too much definition between colours. In all honesty, I thought I had a chance at getting the Bronze Daemon after seeing the other models entered into the Battle Scene category, with the winners not really being anything special in my eye. Mine was definitely the most converted of the bunch for starters and quite a few of the entries had paint jobs that I would never even consider entering a store competition with nevermind the GD. That is why I was so disappointed to not even make the first cut. I did have a chat with one of the guys from Team Montreal (all multiple GD winners) about the model and he pointed out the areas I need to improve in order to do better in the comp. He was very impressed with the model, especially the conversion, but he could also see why it was left out of the first cut. Gave me good advice however which I will be applying on my next model.


Overall though, I am very happy with the model for sure and I will continue to improve on the paint until I get that trophy dammit! :D. Thanks for the compliments guys, I truly appreciate them.

Didn't win a golden demon ? Who cares, you have an uber cool daemon prince, you can be proud of yourself. I'd say in a general way that I don't often agree with the judges of GD, and once again it's the case. It's easier to win when you are known...

Bravo again. Why don't you do a Magnus the Red now ;)

This guy just turned out fantastic, shame you did make it through the first cut. But do did get some good advice and hopefully soom cool new ideas for your next attempt. All I can say is that this model does impress the crap out of me, my love for chaos and elaborate conversion probably helps a lott as well.

Any thoughts yet for a new 'master'-project?

At the moment no. I do intend to do the Helbrecht to Tzeentch champion conversion soon enough but right now I haven't been struck by the inspiration I need to do something on this level. Soon though I'm sure :)

Are you kidding me? By qualifier, do you mean those made the first cut??? Or actually won a trophy? I don't mean to sound like an ass or all pompous but I can seriously paint better than that in my sleep....

Just as an aside note, this link here shows a few different views of the Slayer Sword winner in Toronto (GD I entered fyi). All of the qualifying entries came close to this level for the most part.

I'm just going off what it says in the auction. I agree with you guys completly by the way. I'd say that even my =I= is at least at that level.

I can ask a couple of questions of him if you wanted?, just ask them here and I and will post them on Trademe
