Non-GW parts in Golden Demon? Is that allowed?

27 09 2010

Not sure if this was a fluke or what, but I’m pretty sure I remember reading somewhere that when you enter something into GD, you can’t have parts from other manufacturers. I was just browsing on GW’s website through the entrants from this years Golden Demon to find this well painted chappy:

Now I had to do a double take at the helmet this guy is wearing, and then it dawned on me, I had seen this somewhere before:

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not crying ‘shenanigans’ or anything like that, I think the mini looks great, and actually settled my opinion on whether to pick up some of these for my Black Templars. I guess i’m just surprised that the GW judges didn’t spot it.

Up next, another mini that I had an urge to paint, coming to you in glorious technicolor!

I just participated in a painting contest my local GW store held and the rule there was all GW parts or sculpted by the entrant. That model looks damn good though!

I agree. I think it totally looks kick ass, but when I saw the helmet, I was like ‘waaaaaait a minute!’ Says a lot for the GW judges really 😉

Has it been removed from the GW site or did I miss it?

I think it’s cool that someone was able to slip that guy past whomever enforces GW regulations. I haven’t paid attention to the rules for the Golden Demon in a few years but I doubt they would have eased up on their restrictions against non-GW parts. Thanks for pointing this out, regardless of how it happened it’s still an awesome miniature.

Agreed! Personally I think there is so much stuff GW could be doing, its nice to see the independant companies filling the gaps, so to speak.
