    I ran into Kath for a moment as i was leaving--sounded like a frustrating trip. I missed Chad's demon--that must have been pulled for photos as i was going throught thr line. I do remember seeing Wapellious' Army and the squad of winged marines- those wings really looked good.

    Yep, I'm sure she'll tell the tale when she gets home, but she definitely did her best to get something in. It just wasn't in the cards. We were painting together Friday evening / Saturday morning and she fell asleep in her chair, mini in hand, about 5:30 Sat. morning. I had to do an all nighter to get my entry done, and then went and took an hour nap after entering. I managed a silver in diorama (WooHoo!)

    It was something else. I was too busy running around to wait in line and take pics of anything, but I'm sure someone around here did.

    Yeah guys! where are the pics? Nearly every cell phone now has a camera, but nobody has any pictures? Not even a list of the winners?

    This is the only pic I have found of the Slayer, from a blog:

    Cell phones do have cameras, but they take abysmally bad pictures. And as anyone who has voted or submitted a mini on this site can tell you, bad pics are a bad idea.

    But, bad pictures are better then no pictures... no? But what I was trying to get at, is that I find it amazing that in a country like America, where access to cameras and the internet is so readily available, there is almost a complete blackout on pictures or info on the Chicago Golden Demon? Its weird thats all!

    TrystanGST, you were at the Games Day? You dont remember anyone who won other then Todd? I assume I cant be the only one here that is eager to know the results?

    Most of the folks that I knew were there were travelling Sunday, and probably work today. So I'd guess you should start seeing pics today or tomorrow. I was indeed there. Wappell won three demons, Drew Drescher won three demons, chris borer won a demon, chad won a demon, even Elly, who didn't bring a single entry, won his round of speed demon haha. I'm sure there were more folks here that placed - I know khavor won a demon too.

    Finalist in the warhammer conversion contest. That count?

    Next time I think that I'm going to have to carry a picture notebook with everyone's picture in it, just so I can find people! =)
    Kath's bird didn't make it, huh? And here I spent all that time buttering up a judge.... Almost slipped him a fiver, but his boss showed up!

    It's strange indeed... I wonder what people actually DO with the Millions of GB of Pictures they are taking (while obstructing the View for everyone else......) on a Daemon... In our modern Age, I am dreaming of a live Stream, HD Video coverage, Busty Cheerleader dressed in 40k Stuff, etc. ... Instead: A whole sweet lot of Nuthin...... Hope we will be able to be quicker for the German GD...

    Hey all,

    It was great getting a chance to talk with everyone. I had to duck out right after the ceremonies due to some family stuff, but it was awesome seeing everyone again. My brother took some photos with his cell which he sent over to me. I ended up taking silver in 40k Vehicle with my WWII inspired warhound titan, gold in Fantasy Monster with my mortal plaguerider I've been sprinting on these past two weeks, and gold in LotR single with my easterling troll. Again excuse the crappy quality of these pics from my brother's phone:

    I am starting to suspect that you didn't win, but you just photoshopped yourself in...

    ... seems like shennanigans to me.

    Damn, you caught me. The whole thing is a sham!

    I did find another funny picture though. Matt, Jeff, Alex, Ansel, and I decided to get some decent (non convention) food across the street at the Hyatt where we ran into conventioners from the local 501st. Nothing beats going in for some food to face a group of stormtroopers, 3 ghostbusters, and Mileena from Mortal Kombat. This was snapped later as we were eating but you can see Admiral Adama enjoying a burger behind us:
