Back From WonderFest!

Another WonderFest has come and gone. I’d like to thank the show directors, staff, and volunteers for making this another incredible show. As always, it was wonderful to meet old friends, make new ones, see my fellow vendors, talk and meet our awesome customers and all around have a good time. Thank you to all who attended my miniature demo and I hope you enjoyed it and walked out learning something.

 

The modeling contest had a record number of entries again this year and the quality was outstanding, especially for the miniatures! I had such a hard time picking a winner for the Morland Studios “Best Miniature” award. In the end, I chose this piece as the winner, but it was close between several outstanding models!

 

I was blown away by not only the great miniatures from the adults, but the outstanding (and plentiful) amount of miniatures from the Juniors and Teens this year. So next year I will not only be sponsoring a “Best Miniature” adult trophy, but I will also be sponsoring a “Best Miniature Junior or Teen” trophy and prize. In addition, WonderFest is adding a miniature category, so all minis will be in their own category next year! It’s only a year away, so get painting! If you are able to attend this show, I would highly recommend it just to enter the contest.

 

I also sponsored the “Best Little Hottie” trophy in the fan run Naked Resin Attack Modeling Contest. This is an “after hours” event on Saturday started and run by Tom Gossman to celebrate the female form and allow a place for nude models to be shown that can not be entered into the main contest. This has grown to include female models that are not nude. Anyone who has female models that they want to enter but can not stay for the entire show (or just want to enter them here), are more than welcome to enter the Naked Resin Attack. It features quite a few public voting awards like “Best Little Hottie” , Best of Show Trophy, Best Master Class, Best Embodiment of the Flintstone Spirit as well as sponsor picked awards such as this years “Best Filmy Style”, Best Girlie Girl” and “Best Girl with a Weapon”.

 

Public voting for the Morland Studios sponsored “Best Little Hottie” trophy went to the model “Kabuki”, a well deserved win on a great model build up!

Jewel of Dakkidia

I am pleased to announce a new release to our Nene Thomas line, The Jewel of Dakkidia. She is a 1/10th scale bust sculpted by Kevin Contos and is cast in translucent resin.

 

Translucent resin gives you the option of a variety of special effects when painting, including translucent glowing skin, more realistic lace for the collar and more options should you choose to paint the mask as filigree, etc.  This resin is also special in that it can be painted without the need for priming.

WonderFest 2017

Morland Studios will be attending WonderFest in Louisville, Kentucky on June 3-4th. Wonderfest is a hobby and modeling convention with a very large modeling contest (over 600 entries last year), dealers hall, all day Friday classes as well as demos and workshops over the weekend. You can find out more about WonderFest at https://wonderfest.com

 

We are sponsoring a “Best Miniature” award for WonderFest’s Amazing Modeling Contest. This will consist of a beautiful trophy as well as $150.00 in kit awesomeness. If you are attending, bring those miniatures and place them in the contest!

 

I will also being doing a demo/lecture on the basics of miniature painting. WonderFest features excellent projection screens and video, so everyone will be able to get a good view of the demoing without having to get out of their chairs! This is tentatively scheduled for 3-4pm on Saturday, the final confirmed time will be in the shows pocket guide.

 

Because we will be out of the office, any orders placed between May 30th and June 5th will ship when we return.

 

Hope to see you there!

   This October marks our sixth anniversary! This year we are going to try our anniversary release a little differently because of the health reasons. As I am unable to do a full proper release, I will include a free Halloween Ghost Trick-or-Treater in every order that is over $100.00 as of right now, while the supplies I have on hand last. This figure will not be released, or available outside of conventions until next year. This very cute figure was sculpted for us by Sandra Garrity and is cast in metal. We will also be running our anniversary sale until November 1st on select lines.

Caterpillar 4th 2016 2

I hope all our US friends had a wonderful 4th of July. Now that the fourth is past, Caterpillar must retire his hat for another year. He knows some of his special hats go up and as you can tell from the picture, he’s sad to see them go up. Thankfully his disappointment is short lived as I distract him by giving him his favorite hat until he wants to wear a different one.

 

Since we didn’t run a 4th sale this year, we are running a short sale from now until July 10th. So until Sunday, July 10th you can get 15% off 32mm, 54mm and busts in the Morland Studios line, the Order of the Stick line, the Nene Thomas line and the Howard David Johnson line.
