Golden Demon

Gutrot Spume by David Soper: Slayer Sword at Golden Demon: Classic 2016

Welcome to Golden Demon; Game’s Workshop’s world famous painting competition, where painters enter lovingly prepared models in the hope of winning their category and taking home one of the coveted Golden Demon statuettes. Ever since the competition’s inception back in 1987, winning a Golden Demon has been Games Workshop’s highest honour awarded to painters, and now you have the chance to win one yourself.

For the 2016-2017 season, Warhammer World are proud to announce a full calendar of Golden Demon events; three focused on a specific theme, and then the final “classic” event which will round off the year.

Details for each new event will be released here on the Warhammer World website; keep your eyes peeled here for more information.
