Another thread of World Expo 2017 Chicago photos (picture intensive)

So I was at the World Model Expo in Chicago last weekend, meeting Corporea and a whole bunch of Reaperites and ogling some of the finest miniatures painting and dioramas the world has to offer (the PA system requested fluent translators at a number of points).

 

I took some pictures. Normally I've been putting up galleries on Photobucket, but they turned evil quite recently, so I'm attempting to put some up here to share.

 

Anyhow, much of the show was historical miniatures, a category pretty new to me, and almost everything was much larger scale than the 28mm I'm used to. 

 

As for the vendors, I regret to say that while for the larger figures the men were young, old, noble, peasant, ugly, handsome, heroic, villainous, commonplace, extraordinary, leaders, followers, white, black, Asian, Elvish, Orcish, cowboys, Vikings, soldiers, and fops; there were far fewer women figures and they were overwhelmingly pin-ups.

 

Not that I have anything against pin-ups, per se.  I just prefer painting other things.

 

I did pick up one very nice 54mm armored woman to give a try, only to discover Kuro Cleanbrush had done the same with the same model months ago. Good taste, Kuro!

 

( @Liverpuncher also put up a thread for his World Expo photos here.)

 

Here's a couple of @Wren's pieces, including my own rough approximation of 3D photography: cross your eyes and it's 3-D!

I didn't take representative pictures, I realize, because most of the work seemed to be historical in nature and I focused on the fantasy and things that caught my eye.

 

That said, here's some cool historical work from the show.

I didn't catch who painted these:
