Collecting John Pickford Wiki

Back to Wargames Foundry


In Kevin Dallimore's Painting and Modelling Guide Masterclass ISBN 190154320X, p. 117 you could find a painted sample of the Aquizalor Slayer of Souls long before its official release. Aquizalor was one of quite a few Demons John did for Froundry, but stayed unreleased for several years (Miniatures was sculpted back in 2007/2008). But now (2012) most of the Demons are out and can be found here at: Wargames Foundry

DM005 - Golztariusbous The Ever Turning

A mystery! When these came out in 2012 DM005 was listed as part of the Demon deal, but wasn't included and has never been seen.

Based on the price (double the rest of them) it suggested some sort of Greater Demon, but then again the price-tag could simply be wrong.

The mysterious DM005 - Golztariusbous The Ever Turning

The great find - BOYL 2017

In July 2017 at the Oldhammer event "Bring out your Lead (BOYL 2017)" held at Wargames Foundry an un-released Pickford demon was shown in a mould. Marcus Ansell named it as "the missing demon". David "Dear Tony Blair" Wood didn't hesitate and took pictures of the mould and miniature - and have kindly let me present them here. I've sent them to John and he has confirmed it could be the missing code - though his reply was "a few like that were made" - so perhaps it came with some helpers.

DM005 - Golztariusbous The Ever Turning

In August 2017 I received a master cast from the exact mould presented down here.

It's gorgeous, but I'm still not convinced this being a $20 model :-/

Greater Demon/Demon Prince

When John is speaking of his demon range or his Foundry years in general one miniature stands out above them all - the greater demon. A 6" tall creature with a wingspan of perhaps another 6".


For a long time, this miniature was unreleased and unseen!

However, in 2014 Marcus Ansell confirmed its existence and kindly sent me a picture of a painted piece found in the Foundry collection.

BOYL 2017

In July 2017, at the Oldhammer event "Bring out your Lead (BOYL 2017)" held at Wargames Foundry, the beast was brought out and Maria Ansell even showed off the three head variants it came with. Again Mr. David "Dear Tony Blair" Wood was man on the spot and documented this historic moment.


At Salute 2018 (the South London Warlords Show in London) Mr. David "Dear Tony Blair" Wood caught this on camera, an A3 poster with the painted copy of the demon. I really like the woods "coming soon" here. Late Foundry have kindly sent me a copy of this A3-poster

BOYL 2018

At BOYL 2018 I've persuaded David asking about a release date. The answer was the same as on the poster "soon", but David caught a newly painted red version of the demon and with one of the variant heads. Late, we found out that this red beast was used for the box cover of the actual released version.

Release November 2018

And in November 2018 it was finally released. A few copies were available at the Crises 2018 Show in Antwerp, and officially available in the Foundry/Warmonger store just before Cristmas.
