This is simply a great piece, and the details here are amazing. This is a special edition of Pics of the week, to show off some amazing models from the Golden Daemon at Games Day UK. We were given an exclusive look at these models, and the amount of details is incredible.

I am awaiting a final word from the author of the pics whether or not I can use his name for credits.

    3. Yes that too. Suspicous that everyone wants to suddenly start painting DA....

    4. I'm pretty sure it was the same guy, but yes, suspicious none the less.

    1. You should look more closely, while they look pretty plain if you take a better look you can see all the details the creator added on. The fact that it looks normal on a quick glance is actually a good thing in this case.

      I'm not familiar with the Dark Vengeance models but... did they PAINT that red trim with the arrows on it or is it part of the model? Cause if they painted it... holy shit...

    3. These guys aren't from Dark Vengeance - and yes, it's painted.

    4. That level of fine detail is astonishing - take a close look at the models. They are fantastic.

    5. They are surely better than "meh". There are very nice details on every miniature, and the conversion job is pretty nice overall, but... somehow it lacks the "WOW" element. Perhaps it's just the choice of colours, I don't know.

      It surely requires a steady hand to paint all those arrows on the robes, and great technique for the OSL, but I've seen miniatures which employed these techniques better, and weren't even close to the GD final.

      Oh, and by the way, I know, I am very far away from this level, so no disrespect toward the artist, just saying my opinion.

    6. Yeah, it is really well done. They wouldn't make finalist it that wasn't the case.

      Imo, the weakness of the piece is the ground.
      We have seen such incredible level of realism in diorama in the last couple years...now we're spoiled. ^_-

      Congrats to the painter anyway. Finalist at GW competition is something very few people can achieve. So congrats and respect.

  4. The glow off that plasma gun is amazing, and the individual shells on the two hard gunners really adds to the action of the scene. I love it, even as a long term DA player I have to give props to these fallen.

  5. Reminds of the Night Lord 5 man command squad someone did a few years ago. Loads of character!

  6. This looks like a DA x CSM kitbash with greenstuffed accessories and whatnot. Pretty egregious with the chopped aspiring champion heads but nonetheless impressive models with an excellent paintjob.

  7. Wow. I see mold lines everywhere, uneven highlighting, thick paint. While it looks decent, this is not gd quality painting.

  10. If they're "fallen angels", where is Cypher?

    1. Poofing himself closer to terra. What the other fallen do is not his concern!

  11. They are definitely a lot nicer than some minis, but somehow I don't think they measure up for a Golden Demon.

    There's an awful lot of paint texture on them, suggesting poorly thinned paints, and the metals and blacks lack depth and texture.

    That's not me being snobby, that's just pointing out some of the technical deficiencies I don't expect to see in GD level work.

  12. Imagine my surprise to find the above pictured piece on display at my local GW...

    I really was completely amazed, and in absolute fairness - it looks much better in real life!
