This is so lovely to hear, I'm quite glad it turned out this way. Did you alter the miniature at all between when we last saw it? How well did your other entries do? and of course the suit won, it's gorgeous.

Congratulations ! Its a double-whammy really. A Tau model and an ATT member get their kudos. A good day to be Tau.

Congrats! That's one of the best set of news I heard for these past few days (aside from the new FW model but this TAKES THE CAKE!)

Looking at the model, It is a well deserved Win!

I do hope no one says that he won because Tau have been getting a lot of attention lately from GW. :( I'd crash a Manta on that person.
Smile. It confuses people.

Fantastic work there! Just checked out your model on the GW site, and it is so hot that I nearly burned my eyes (eyebrows are gone though :) ). Your work is an inspiration and I cannot wait to see what you manage to throw at us in the future.

Hey Warhound sorry for the late reply (I'm at my folks' place for the week) but I just wanted to add to the list of congratulations! I've been itching to find out how you went and am so glad that you did so well! Great job buddy ;)

Hey hey hey, nicely done Warhound :D

Just found out after logging in at a wifi cafe this morning. Needed my caffe' y'know!

Congrats on the win and deservedly so for the amount of effort having gone into the model, like I said earlier, special set of combined skills there ;)

As for beating Tael to it? I scored a demon a few years ago with my Duel entry "Nimbosa Knifefight", however the folks on stage with me were certainly not as affable as Warhound here, their comments on other entrants and general clique behaviour left a sour taste in my mouth and I haven't entered a GD since. I think building the entry like Warhound's blog here would have been great fun back then.

Considering I'll be living elsewhere, maybe give a go in another country haha! Maybe England eh Warhound! :D (Team Tau)

No promises though, that first experience really tainted the GD for me.

Anyhooooo.. congrats man, now paint up those XV9's! :D

- Tael.

Oh and also, Happy Birthday to Warhound for the weekend. A Golden Demon is not a bad birthday present, eh?

GOOD morning chaps!

Right, to be honest, I am rubbish at taking photo's, so have compiled a few here so that people can the full effect...

Not a lot more to be said really- It was a great weekend all be told and it was so nice to meet up with old international friends, see and hear new stuff about our blue friends and yes, take my 5th gold!

Anyway, onto the shots:
http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/home.jsp - yup he's on the front page;-P

Check out the Tau ambassador also in the large scale category!- VERY nice cloth and lettering in the flesh!

Thanks again to all for their support, ideas and input. Remember- this forum has some pure genius on it- make the most of it!

EDIT: oH, and for the record, I did beat Tael (his piece was 2004) My, Tau Ambassador was 2002, and first winner was 1994! Sorry Tael, and also for the fact that GD knocked it out of you- that is a real shame! :sad:

You know, someone must really love the Tau at GW. A bunch of articles recently and now the first image you see for the GD is a Crisis Suit!

It looks beautiful Warhound and you should be proud.
