It is just under a week until War Games Con (formerly BoLSCon). You still have a chance to sign up for some of the events and "get your ass to Austin!"
Bigred, JWolf, and the team there have some great stuff planned for the entire weekend.
One of the things planned is the first stab at some hobby seminars. This time around they have asked me to talk about toy soldiers, and you know I love to do that : )
I think there are still a few slots left for the Friday Hobby Day, so hit up the website and register!
Session One: 10am - 12pm
Dave Taylor presents Joe Orteza's "Lose the Fear: Working with Greenstuff" class.
This class will focus on figure conversion and the use of green stuff. Students will learn different aspects of figure conversion, from basic to advanced. The class will touch on the pose of the figure, basing, and the theme of model. I’ll discuss different techniques from singular display models to large units. Students will learn to utilize green stuff for figure embellishment and sculpting.
Session Two: 1pm - 3pm
"Back to Basics: Streamling Techniques to get your Army Painted"
This class will focus on painting models efficiently and effectively, allowing you to get your armies painted that much faster. Students will learn different "tricks" to cut down on the time spent deliberating on color choices, correcting mistakes, and enhancing the "pop" of an army.
Session Three: 4pm - 6pm
"Building that Centerpiece: The Jewel in the Crown of your Army"
Each army you build really deserves to have a standout, unique model that stands in the center of the display board. This class will focus on the use of plasticard (and plasticard related materials) to enhance existing models/vehicles, or create completely new vehicle shapes and ideas. Students will learn the correct ways of handling plasticard, as well as plenty of ideas and tips for embellishing their centerpiece models.
