Golden Demon entries are the absolute pinnacle of miniatures painting, demonstrating the very best work of the very best painters in the community.

We’ve just updated the Golden Demon website with some of the latest entries, including those from the Warhammer 40,000 Open Day – perfect if you’re looking for some inspiration for your next entry or just fancy looking at some awesome models.

We’ve also updated the website with the Golden Demon calendar for the year, so you know when you’ll be able to check out the competition in person, or even make plans for any submissions you have in mind. The next of these will be at the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Open Day with the Warhammer Age of Sigmar Golden Demon.

Dedicated fans won’t want to miss this year’s Warhammer Fest, which promises to feature the year’s largest and most prestigious competition: the Golden Demon Classic. Indeed, this year, we’re changing the format a little bit to give our painters more time to submit their entries and enjoy the weekend, while providing every visitor the chance to check them out, by extending the competition to encompass the Saturday AND the Sunday of the weekend. The judging will still be on Sunday, but there will be plenty of amazing entries to look at over both days.

What’s more, we’re also happy to announce the final categories for the rest of this year’s contests – these are:
