Winners from the Golden Demon USA 2024 painting competition were unveiled recently. The competition was held at AdeptiCon 2024, which took place from March 20-24, 2024 at the Schaumburg Convention Center.

Once again, the best of the best Warhammer painters submitted their models for judgment at the U.S. leg of GW's painting competition; a second leg of this competition will be held at Essen Spiele this year (see "Two Stops for Golden Demon 2024"). This year's categories were condensed a little with some categories combined into a single category to make room for Warhammer Old World, Necromunda, and The Horus Heresy miniatures as their own categories. This year's competition featured the following categories:

  • Warhammer 40,000: Single Miniature  
  • Warhammer 40,000: Unit or Kill Team
  • Warhammer 40,000: Large Model or Vehicle
  • Age of Sigmar: Single Miniature
  • Age of Sigmar: Unit or Warcry Warband
  • Age of Sigmar: Large Model or War Machine
  • Middle-earth
  • The Horus Heresy
  • Warhammer Underworlds
  • Necromunda
  • Blood Bowl
  • Warhammer: The Old World
  • Epic Scale
  • Youngbloods
  • Diorama & Duel
  • Open Competition

The Slayer Sword was awarded to Alexandre Dos Santos for his diorama of Cado Ezechiar.  The diorama featured a unique mirror-image juxtaposition of the main miniature above ground with a banshee beneath his feet underground.
