This year I also got an invitation to show my miniatures on the “Miniaturansichten”. Although it is always fantastic to show
the Minis outside of my own four walls, it is a horror for me to transport them with the car. The streets of the Ruhrgebiet
are getting really bad and each pothole lets my heart stand still (and Troll, my driver, gets a nasty hiss from me).
But all went well this time too and so we arrived safely around 9:30 in the morning and after a fast greeting we started with the construction and the polishing of the display case. And of the photo area, which my Troll managed very well. Exactly at 11 o’clock the first visitors stormed into the hall. I talked certainly the entire time through! With other exhibitioners, with friends, acquaintance and with guests. Or is there a better reason to go to this kind of exhibitions? Therefore I had no time for painting there, but I can do that at home also. In my opinion we had not as much visitors as last year, maybe because of the football world championship or the very warm weather. But the number of miniatures that joint the competition increased and the standard was very high!
The Jury consists of Holger Schmidt, Werner Klocke, Stephan Niehues and Franz Sander.I placed some of the competition miniatures to the pictures, even if I do not always know who painted them.
Hopefully the pictures of the winning miniatures can be seen in the next days on the website of the House of Youth. The miniatures were so fantastic!!
The price, the Red Devil, was this time also sponsored and sculptured by Stephan Niehues (Masquerade Miniatures). It is larger than last years Devil and has now an impressing wooden base! The prices are now so big, that the winning miniatures can hide easily behind them.
My Beloved of Sobek won the first price in the Monster Masterclass category and my Daedra the second place in the Single Miniature Masterclass category. And now, just enjoy the pictures:
