Throwback Thursday: Games Day 2009 Chaos Lord

It's Thursday! That means we jump into the time-stream and go back to revisit some of my older miniatures and projects. It's Throwback Thursday! This week we're taking a look at the Games Workshop Games Day 2009 Chaos Lord.

In 2009, I was all set and ready to go to Games Day 2009 and attempt to enter the Golden
Daemon painting competition. But after purchasing my ticket and attempting to create something special for it, I ended up feeling that it was pointless and talked myself out of it.

But, for purchasing a ticket at the Games Workshop store that used to be open in Great Lakes Crossing, here in Michigan, I still got my hands on the limited edition Chaos Lord miniature.

He sat in my to-do pile for a while afterwards, I got into a bit of a painting slump following the decision that I wasn't up to par to join in on a painting comp. And based on the paint job on this guy, while I like how he looks, is definitely not competition worthy.

I still have dreams of putting in for a competition one day and seeing how I compare. But for now, I'm just happy with knowing that, thanks to Twitter, there are folks out there who enjoy what I'm doing. Even if there is no trophy sitting on my shelf for it.
