I just wanted to let you all in on my news – I will be heading to Warhammer Fest this May, and I will be bringing you plenty of news and gossip from the event.
I had thought about heading back to Italy, a favoured haunt of mine, this Spring. Tuscany, maybe Rome… Or perhaps heading back to Porto to do some sketching. Sunshine, good food, relaxation… But no. I’m going to Coventry. I will be hauling myself, and a few choice miniatures up to the Ricoh Arena for a couple of days of junk food, bad weather, a hammered credit card, and large men in hoodies and baggy jeans.
But I’ll make it fun. As I’ll be staying in the arena, I’ll be there from start to finish, and I will bring you updates on Saturday night, and maybe even Sunday night too (I’ll be travelling back then so we’ll see about that). And if you’re heading along to the event too, give me a shout, and I may well be up for grabbing a beer somewhere too – having been up there before, I’m going to need it.
What’s more, I’m going to be painting a couple of things especially for the event, and of course, you’ll see my process here on Heresy & Heroes. At the moment, I’m thinking of another squad (I have form in this category after all) and maybe even a duel… that’ll be a challenge for me (pun somewhat intended). Oh, and I’ll be taking this guy along for some giggles too:
And who knows what else!? I may do more, but I’ve only got a couple of months to put any entries I want to take to the Golden Daemon Classic, and I don’t want to rush anything.
I’m really looking forward to more new releases, more seminars, and more of bringing you all the best gossip that I can bring you from the biggest Games Workshop event of the year. Even if it does mean going to Coventry. Onwards!
