Do Not Miss: June 2015

And the summer arrived! And with them, lots of news for the miniature world (did I hear Age of Sigmar?) as well as many cool things for miniature modelling fans:

Guess who is coming to town this weekend

This weekend one of my favourite miniature artists of all time is coming to Madrid!

Kirill in action!

Kirill Kanaev is going to give a course on miniature painting this weekend, and I'm pretty sure it's going to be awesome. Those who know me, are very aware of how much I love his work and how much I would love to be able to understand miniature painting the way he does. When I heard that he was going to be traveling around to teach courses all over the world, I knew I had to bring him to Madrid.

The course will be held the same way I usually organize courses here in Madrid. Only those who signed up for the newsletter about my courses were notified of the opportunity, so only a few fortunate painters from that list will be attending.

I can't say enough how excited I am! So looking forward to this, it's going to be one hell of a weekend...

... because these days Madrid is the closest place to hell I can think of

Let's hope Kirill survives the big contrast in temperature he will find in Madrid compared to mother Russia!

Do Not Miss: May 2015

I have to admit that I have been a little lost with so many travels these past few weeks, even so, these are the most interesting things I've seen in the minature painting world for this month of May:

Games Workshop officially confirms plans for classic Golden Demon UK 2015

Just this morning I posted my very sad post about the supposed death of Golden Demon. The news spread like wildfire on the internet, and many mentioned the possibility of there being a normal Golden Demon at some point in the year. Finally, the news that I had hoped to hear, which only seemed a rumor this morning, is now confirmed officially by Games Workshop!

Read this reply from the Warhammer World staff to a member of the 'Eavy Metal Facebook Group, Mr. Jeff Northcott (who I want to thank very much for bringing me a bit of joy today back to my life):

    FROM: Warhammer World Events (Nick Bayton)
    TO: Jeff Northcott (legendary ender of uncertainty :P)

    Hey there Jeff -
    First of all, my many apologies for the delay in replying to you.
    Let me reassure you; we are redesigning the Golden Demon season to have more events than ever before. The "Tanks" event is the first in an exciting new calendar of focused events, which will concentrate on a specific theme. However, we do very much plan on ending this season with the "Classic" Golden Demon that you have come to know and love.
    The standard Golden Demon event is not being split up into lots of smaller events... we're doing that one and loads more of these focused ones as additional extras, which means there is even more opportunity for painters to try their arm at earning a Demon.
    I'm afraid I can't offer you any dates or reveal the themes of the upcoming focused events because they are not finalised yet, and I'd hate you to arrange time off or paint a model for a certain date only for the date to change later.
    I hope I have alleviated some of your fears and answered your question.
    Regards

    Nick Bayton

Alright Golden Demon fans everywhere! It seems like "Classic" GD UK is still on the list, with the addition of these small Golden Demon single-category like events at Warhammer World. I certainly think this is very good news! Now, where will it be? It doesn't seem like Warhammer World will be able to hold a full Golden Demon. Maybe Coventry like last year?
