Monte san Savino part 2

During our stay in a small village not far from Monte san Savino, we whent for a walk to have a look at the local castle. We went up to the front door, and it appeared to be a hotel so we were let in and invited for a tour. An amazing omd castle had been turned info a hotel with modern rooms all over, but at the same time kept in the medieval style. It was Castella delle Serre we had been invited for a tour in, go HERE for their own website. Here are a few pictures I took.

We went on to drive to Monte and take a walk there before entering our miniatures.

While at the show, we ran into some very kind people. Andrea and Dino was there with their wide selection of plinths in almost all shapes and sizes. I couldnt help myself from buying a small selection.

In the picture can also be seen the single model I bought at the show, an awesome "Eternal Crusader" ;) Sculpted by Michael Kontraros, looking forward to paint it,

Also, a shoutout to Kyle and his blog mrleespaintingemporium.blogspot.dk for being a standup guy :D

Monte san Savino show 2014

This last weekend I attended the yearly Monte san Savino show. It was my first time at this show and my 3rd ever of its kind, previously shows being Gamesday Cologne 2013 and Painting Crusade this spring.

I didnt really know what to expect from the show. I was told a lot about how many people attended, but nothing about anything else really :) So we arrived thursday late evening at our hotel, 20 minutes drive from Monte and was ready for intensive nerding friday morning. Here are some of the pictures I took, click the LINK for more pictures.

Best of show:

If you have painted any of the miniatures I have taken pictures of and would like to have your name linked, just write me.

It was an amazing display of highend painting, converting and full-tilt sculpting. I entered the fantasy painting standard with a small group of my models. Unfortunately, 4 of the models were damaged in transit, most lightly caused by a baggage handler being a little too rough on my suitcase. What I learned was: always travel with your minis in you hand luggage.

We were 4 danish guys going; Kristian, Tue and Thomas. Kristian was the only one of us bringing home a medal, but we were all very happy to have joined the event and met a lot of kind fellow nerdie people. Amongst all the kind people, I ran into Kyle, Stefan and many others i'll link to later.

Till next time, Cheers.
