Once again the CMPA (Colorado Miniature Painting Alliance) will be hosting the Painting Conference and Competition at Genghis Con XXXV. Genghis Con takes place February 13th - 16th 2014 at the Red Lion Hotel in Aurora CO (I-225 and Parker Rd). Genghis Con is run by the Denver Gamers Association (DGA) (their website is currently showing Tacticon, the Labor Day convention). Their website is here: http://www.denvergamers.org/ or you can find them on Facebook. The CMPA is currently getting its list of classes ready for the registration book the current list of classes from the notes handed out last Saturday include the following (there are typically multiple slots for most of these, except the more advanced classes like OSL and NMM): Setting the Scene; Advanced Basing Flesh and Faces Faking the Forge; Shaded Metallics OSL Basing for Beginners NMM Unit Painting Vignettes and Dioramas Mini Photography Basics for Beginners Blending Freehand Airbrush Demo Glazing Leveling Up (This is a preliminary list and is still subject to change) The current line up of instructors is: Michael Proctor Rhonda Bender (yes, Wren) Phil Esterle (although absent from the Reaper forums, still painting) http://www.fingolfin.net/ Lyn Stahl Torin Reed Plus a few to be named later. Normally Lili Troy also instructs but her hands will be full with a 1 year old at that point. We are also missing Jen Kaufman who has decided to take a break. The painting competition is a trophy format (1st, 2nd & 3rd) with multiple categories. Currently Dark Sword miniatures is confirmed for a $200 manufacturer award (nested in as part of the regular competition). I would expect to see at least one other manufacturer jump in as well. We are also a Crystal Brush qualifier event. I'll fill things in as more information is confirmed. Also if you are in the Denver area, please feel free to attend our regular 2nd Saturday painting get together. Currently meeting at Dark Matter Games (Mississippi and Wadsworth).
