    Stompa or Mega Dread for Golden Demon ?

    Games Workshop is holding its first "lage landen painting competition" wich is golden demon awards for Belgium and Holland. Since i work for games workshop i can only enter in the open competition since it would not be fair for me to enter the ones that are judged by gw staff.
    So i was wondering which model i should enter. Some people say the stompa and others the mega dread .... what do you think ?

    To be honest, i personally like the dread model more than the stompa. If you can only enter one, i would say go with the stompa as i feel that model will make a bigger impression on the judges. They are both painted amazingly, and from the pictures i must say on the same level as well. If you have trouble deciding, do what your gut and insticnt tell you. Good luck in the contest, im sure you will do great!! and let us know how it goes

    Wow. I love them both so this is tough. I'd say go with the Dread. Great pose and terrific looking base on top of an already awesome paint job.

    Uhh the Stompa isn't on a base. The dread is. Just saying.. hope you are voting for the right one. Ork Stompa | Games Workshop if you are voting for his Stompa...

    Not trying to challenge your intelligence.

    I do like the Dread most... The dread has the ability to have so much more character, where the Stompa always just looks like a walking guard tower with a skirt...

    Both paint jobs are remarkable, and of the same caliber. But, unless you have a way of making the Stompa look like more than the run of the mill Stompa with an awesome paint job, they will all look the same pose wise and quality wise... Awesome paint job, plus dynamic pose will make the Dread stand out.

    Dread. The base is amazing...and the posing of the model is very dynamic and interesting. Also you don't see as many mega dreads, as you do stompa's.

    Thanx for all the votes so far. Looks like its going to be mega dread at the moment. The pose is cooler indeed and the best part is that the whole model has been magnetised so i can adjust the pose in a million ways (gun arm can move on 3 joints, claw arm can turn on 2 joints and the middle can be turned on the legs).
    The thing i like about the stompa though is that its big and impressive in real life and it still has a different arm and head and a big badmoon symbol on the belly which all make it look a bit different from the normal stompa ... but maybe not enough though ...
