Hussar 2011!

Hello there:)
Last weekend me and REDAV went to Warsaw to take part in Hussar 2011 (biggest polish competition). Lovely event:) it was great to meet all the painters again, talk about miniatures and other not related stuff:)

As for the competition, there were lots of beautiful miniatures, painted by great painters such as Ańa, Mahoń, Camelson, Flameon, C'tan, Sławol, Karol Rudyk, mr. Denial, Kacpero, Ignis and Rakso and many, many more, all willing to win. The trophies were Hussarettes (picture below) but the main award was sponsored by CoolMiniOrNot and it was a return ticket to Chicago for next year's Crystal Brush competition.


Hussarettes
Hussar wasn't only a competition. There were other atractions:)
the first were sculpting classes Robert Kurek (sculptor of the Hussarettes). Great fun, I made a bust and Robert said it was great!:) I'll post the bust pics later:)


Robert teaching:)

Then there was a speed painting competition organised by Warsaw Team. Last year it was great. This year, even better! We all had to paint high elf spearman within 45 minutes. But to make it more interesting we had 2 paints... then, after 8 minutes those paints were changed for some other, random colors. Then again, and again...;) I really liked it, and I was lucky enough to win second place:)

me, painting a spearmen:) (in the center)
then there were painting classes with Ańa and Camelson.
Next atraction was giving free gifts to random paricipants:) After that we were all waintg for the final verdict. I was extremely happy when I heard that I got bronze in Diorama and gold in Single SF!
And the winner of Grand Prinx and flight to Crystal Brush 2012 was Flameon. Congratulations mate:)


Then was an after party:) we all had some more time to talk in a company of refreshing and cold beer (REDAV couldn't drink, he was driving a car :D)
