What happened?

Wow, two weeks without an entry on the blog. What happened? First of all, I passed another very important exam and made a huuuge step towards being made a civil servant. This time was very hard, to downplay the whole situation. I felt like a Grey Knight lost in the warp, fighting 24/7 with no hope for return. However, in the end I found a way back and now I am almost done and utterly satisfied with the outcome. I slayed a monstruos demon (got an A) and now I can focus on something called "private life". Yehaa!!!!

Next week I will return to my painting desk and go on with the rat ogre. I can hardly wait for that moment....

Sorry for all of you waiting for a reply, I am an unworthy creature. :)

Tomorrow will be the french Games Day, the first european GD this year. I am very excited about that and will try to collect all links to galleries here.

Quote of the day

Todays quote just perfectly sums up my week.

Event coverage: Duke of Bavaria 2011

Due to private reasons I could only go there on Friday and Saturday, so you get this coverage while the event is still running and the winners are not yet anounced. However, I can tell you that the monkey gang from Massive Voodoo did an excellent job and will take home a lot of trophies. 
The overall impression of the weekend was great once again, all the helping hands in the background show great routine and the show just works perfectly fine. The number of entrys wasn't as high as last year, but what can you expect a few months before the world expo is taking place. The level of quality was very high, both in historical and fantasy painting.
The number of retailers at the show also went down a bit, but that is nothing to worry about, I think.
I was very happy to meet dozenz of hobby friends from the Bemalforum, some foreign painters such as Fabrizion Rusto and many guys from the organization team. I also was allowed to take part at the decision of the Best of Show miniatures and that really helped me to understand what a jury is looking at when it comes to close decisions. That was a great experience.
Here are some pictures to give you an impression of the weekend.
