...GW has done something reeeeally nice! It's not confirmed yet, but rumor has it, that GW will replace the coveted GD Finalist Pins with GD Finalist medals.
|Could it be true!? OMG - I hope I don't win a demon - I want a finalist medal! :D|
IF this is true, I think it is AWESOME news! I liked the pins, but I LOVE the medals. Medals make every nerd feel special, no matter how tough they are!
If THAT is not reason enough to try your best and visit some Games Days this year, I don't know what is.
Someone already asked the question (thus creating another rumor) whether similar medals would also replace the Demons. I, for one, don't believe so. It's not the Golden Medal competition - it's the Golden DEMON competition. And with that, I am sure the Demons will be here to stay.
Our Games Day Schedule for 2013
This year we have - and will - report from many global miniature painting events and competitions. As far as Games Days are concerned, here is our schedule (and who of the masterminis/paintingbuddha team will go):
- Games Day US - Memphis Tennessee (July 27th; "White Rabbit" (Ben), "Zaphod Beeblebrox" (Michael))
- Games Day Germany - Cologne (Aug 11th; Ben, "Badsmile" Mati and me)
- Games Day UK - Birmingham (September 29th; Ben, me, maybe Mati)
- Games Day Italy: We will go to HUSSAR Poland instead, as we promised to come :)
- Games Day Japan: IF there is a GD Japan, I will go. But there are no confirmations yet.
Make sure to stay tuned to masterminis.net to hear all about the many PRE-GD-DINNERS we have planned for all of these events! More about this soon (tm).
GD US is sold out. GD Germany still has a lot of tickets, I hear. GD UK will only be 4500 attendees this year (different venue). I have no word on Italy as far as ticket availability goes. Tickets can be purchased here: <snoop dogg>Grab em while like they're hot!</snoop dogg>
We will report for you!
We will report EXTENSIVELY before, during and after the events. And we have some very special coverage in store for you... Only so much about this for now: It has to do with our entries ;)
But honestly.... We would rather MEET you at some of the Games Day events. Let us know, if you are going! ;)
So stay tuned, and SHARE & ENJOY masterminis.net and paintingbuddha.com with your friends!
