    I am still wondering about the less interest . . .
    What you missed: a very great event indeed. Absolutely NO mithril figures at all. A great questionmark inside the faces of people I asked for.
    And a lot of very first class painted figures and a very high standart in diorama building. And very friendly dutch people . . .

    Er, Mithril figures? I’m afraid that we around here are the only ones left who remember and know a bit about those miniatures. And few we are, aren’t we. – Just be glad you didn’t ask people about Phaeton Design figures, the question mark would have been much larger then.

    Sorry Master Turambar, I missed this thread. It’s not lack of interrest; More lack of spare time for mini these weeks.:/
    It must have been great pleasure to see so many art works in real.:cool:

    Master Milo- I can tell you . . .
    When I saw all these miniatures I was so upset that I shivered a lot. That´s the reason, why all pictures are shaken . . . :rolleyes:
    And Master Maenas. I am very sure there are similar events in spain. I know Sevilla, Madrid and your hometown.
    Don´t ask me for details because it is too far away from Germany, but I saw advertising about everytime throughout the year . . .
    A shaken picture- maybe an inspiration. Imagine there is the [mith]MS568[/mith] inside . . .

    Oh even glowing efects and color distortion from the light beneath! Should try to do it on some mini! And would like to try it on the [mith]M395[/mith] or [mith]m56[/mith]

    I am totally disconnected then Master Turambar because I was not aware of those events. I know that there are hundreds of wargaming and cardgames events around here, but did not knew anyone about just painted miniatures and modelling. Will have to check&search for them, since I am restarting on my painting hobby.

    Hello Mater Maenas!
    I don’t know in Barcelona, but here in Madrid there are painting courses by very talented people.

    Too far for me … for us is the closest such event was in Trieste, Italy. Sometimes I went to Italy to look at it, but I never got involved in the competition. Maybe I could have to do it once. In Croatia there is a yearly (in begining of September) competition called “Black Queen”, but there are mainly military vehicles and aircraft. ( http://www.crna-kraljica.com/index.php )

    So- I have spent the last Saturday in Eindhoven. That is the Netherlands.
    As last year I visited the “Scale Model Challange” and I have to say: what a marvellous event!
    I returned with pockets full of Kryptonite- ahem- useful things for the hobby I want to say . . .
    And there was A LOT to buy and A LOT to see.

    First: these “houses” from that croatian company, already displayed here somewhere. The “Woodmen Elder” travelled with me- for having the perfect comparison and I am not sure still, if those products fit well enough. Have a look:

    There were some base-parts for 54mm. In this case I would say, perfectly in use for our minis. This egypt column ruined was amazing . . .

    The best was this arabian door. Absolutely magnificent . . . unfortunately NO Haradrim inside orbit at present . . .

    Many many fantastic miniatures were shown there, amazing dioramas, excellent and highest painting level! Wow!
    But NO mithril at all. A shame . . .

    Well, Master orc, I decided many times ago NOT to post something of my work here anymore. For several reasons.
    I suggest to go ahead with our private contact . . .
