Art is a very subjective thing, but one thing is for sure, when it comes to miniature painting there are certain difficulty levels that act like a sort of Karate belts system. These rungs on the ladder means one must master a set of certain things, so unlike contemporary art, miniature art can be judged by how well you execute the many different techniques you use to make the perfect model.

The Golden Daemon awards are supposed to be a test not only of creativity, but also of mastering the skills; if you cannot accomplish certain things you shouldn’t win awards.

With that in mind take a look at the Sword Slayer from 2013 North America Games Day.


That is a profession picture taken of the model which won.

The upper crust of Golden Daemon painters are a very exclusive group and not prone to drama because well word gets around, but the reports I am hearing from various sources say something strange was afoot at this year’s Golden Daemon. More on this story as it develops, but for now I leave you with this “subjective” assessment.
