WonderFest 2018

I will again be attending WonderFest in Lousville Kentucky on June 2nd-3rd and vending in Dealer Hall 1.


For those that haven’t been to WonderFest, this is a weekend-long hobby orientated convention which covers Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy and FX.  The modeling aspect covers Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Miniatures, props, etc.  Their modeling contest is extremely large (743 entries last year!) and always has a large amount of miniature entries.  Last year, they had so many wonderful models and, being blown away by the quality of the junior miniatures, inspired us to offer a second sponsored award.  So this year Morland Studios is sponsoring:


Best Miniature
With a lovely crystal trophy and $150.00 in figures


Best Junior Miniature
The winner here will also get a lovely crystal trophy and $150.00 in figures. Please make sure you mark your entries as by a Junior on the entry sheet!


This is a shot of last years crystal trophy. 

WonderFest also has quite a few fun after-hours activities and one of my favorites is the Naked Resin Attack.  This is an unofficial, attendee-run, ADULT modeling contest.  It was started so that modelers could display figures that had once been allowed in the main contest but (due to nudity) are no longer allowed.  This has grown to allow not just nude (female and male) figures but also non nudes figures and some entries from folks who could not attend both days of the show and enter the main contest.  Please note that while this is an adult contest, it is respectful and no violence towards women, obscenity, etc are allowed.  The contest has some extremely nice trophies and prizes and of the awards are given via public vote.  This year we are sponsoring Best Little Hottie (best small scale entry) and Best Master Class (for the best entry from past Best of Show winners).


I will also be doing “Mighty Minis Part II” on Saturday.  This is a one-hour demo that will cover an overview of the most common miniature painting techniques, tips and tricks and an in-depth demonstration on painting easy eyes on miniatures.






When we return from the show, we will be releasing our Opaque version of the Nene Thomas line Jewel Bust as well as two accessory figures. All three will be available at the show.


As we are attending WonderFest, any orders placed between May 28th and June 4th will ship when we return.
