German Games Day 2012 event coverage

Here's my review on the 2012 German Games Day. I tried to organize this coverage somewhat, starting with the Slayer Sword winner, then all the winners from the different categories. Most winners are included in this report. After that I like to show you some more great entries and finally some miscellaneous pictures. Now let the pictures do the talking :)

The Slayer Sword


Raffaële Picca (picster from Massive Voodoo) won his second Slayer Sword (first one in 2010, review here) with his entry from the Duel category.






Last year's winner Matt Cexwish passes on his title.

Display


Some pictures of the display cases. Too bad we missed out the painting demos :(







Games Workshop and Forgeworld


The GW and Forgeworld display was rather poor this year, no previews or whatsoever, and the GW display case only contained the latest Chaos releases. What I did like was the display case with greens.




Cologne


We arrived at the show around 11:30 and immediately went to the Golden Demon contest to take pictures. After a quick tour of the rest of the show we had enough of the overload of smelly nerds and went out for lunch. After that we made walk next to the river and then of course the obligatory visit to the Dom.

I also had some great company this year: Maartje from MaGie Painting joined me for the trip. Thank you for making it a fantastic day ;)

I took the final picture when we went back to our car when the show was over. It says "only for women" :)

Hopefully I will be able to visit the GD next year again, and maybe I will give it a try and enter something myself. We'll see :)

Beautiful Report, Gerrie! I was happy to meet again! I think you got some minor fault pics in some categories here - just used the wrong photo! No problem I just wanted to mention and I know how much work a report of such an event is. Well done and thanks for your time and efforts! Best Wishes Roman

Wonderful report of the event. I was there but just couldn't get close to most of the display cases so I did not see some of the minis. Your photos, therefore, fill a void.

Thank you!
