Games Day 2011

Well, after travelling to Birmingham yesterday and spending an enjoyable afternoon with Maelstrom - you may know him from TheRisingSign I went and stayed at the hotel, woke up late for GD, much to the dismay of,
Rictus, Maelstrom and LavaDave. Aaanyway, we arrived before 10am still, and I spent the day travelling around with Rictus, taking photographs.

The FW Display Area!


Here are some of my favourites.
Imperial Empalcement - hollow (light) display-terrain piece. Looks good, despite being very square...

 Dark Eldar somethingius.
 Another Dark Eldar somethingius.
 Crassus, not seen one in person so got a photo. Would be awesome to paint I think.
 New Rapier - an old style GW piece being remade. There's a little plate at the back so maybe they're going to do crewmen for it... Oooh, a Krieg Engineer crewman would be good!
Strange Warhammer Forge model, very not Warhammer actually, got other gaming system look to it, very creepy and as I say looks like something brand new in Warhammer.
Elysian concept art (Stormtroopers?).
Nurgle toads. These are MINT.
Rictus showed me this a few weeks ago and I loved it, one of my favourite GW models of the year (I don't rate Dark Eldar much). This is the oversize model (something to do with casting or something) it's like 4-5 times the size of the original. I got ahold of my copy of the model yesterday from Rictus so I'll get to painting it in a week or two. Whilst taking a photo of this, a fella in a GW shirt started talking to me, and I said how much I liked the model and "Who sculpted it", "me" was the reply. 

Some of my favourite Golden Demon entries - if you see yours please say! And remember these pictures are taken through glass with competing light sources so they're not always the best.
Golden Contemptor
Dreadnought smashing Tau backdoors in.

Not a clue.

GK Dreadnought I think. With Biffy Clyro lyrics on.

At the end of the day. Madness had set in.
Maelstrom, LavaDave and Mr. Feral




Anyway, good day had by all.
How was your experience?

  2. Steve (its Gavin btw), it was good to see you again mate.

    The pic you titled "Not a clue" is an Admech conversion done by Cerebaleus over on Ammobunker. I believe its a count as Sentinel and is made from a Blood Slaughterer (FW) and other bits (Titan crew pilot and other FW bits).
