SI meet up at Games Day

October 2, 2009

At Games Day UK this year we arranged for a quick Sheffield Irregulars meet up, and a good bunch showed up for it. If you didn’t – grrr….

It was nice to shake hands with some folk we’ve only spoken to online before.

The group photo was taken by Paul Edeson and we’re very grateful to him for taking it.

One week to go

September 20, 2009

Games Day UK 09 is only 1 week away now – and if you’re anything like me you’re still working on your Golden Demon entry.

The big painters meet up on the day will be held at the Crowne Plaza hotel from 12:00 till 15:00, but we have planned for a Sheffield Irregulars meet up at 12:30, at the Golden Demon repair table.

It’d be great to meet up with members from all over, and hopefully there will be a photo op.

Anyone wanting to head over to the painters meet up afterwards will be very welcome – but if you just want to enjoy the day in NEC itself, go right ahead and enjoy yourself.

If you spot anyone in a Sheffield Irregulars/Irregular Magazine sweater or t-shirt on the day, be sure to stop and say hi.

Looking forward to meeting up with everyone, seeing your entries for the painting competition, and looking at your photos of the day afterwards 🙂

We’re planning to try to Tweet the results of the Golden Demon awards – but this depends on how fast I can text on the day. So if you’re not attending, make sure you’re following us on Twitter: We plan to use the hash tag #GDUK09 wherever possible, and if you’re tweeting too – use it as well, so we can find out about your day as well.

Platoon Britannica

June 23, 2009

Still recovering a little from the weekend, where the Platoon Britannica meet up was held at Warhammer World in Nottingham.

This was the 2nd PB meet up and looks set to have a third next year.

Robin and Ben from PB set up the event to encourage the British painting community to support each other and create a real community dimension to the hobby, especially in the competitive field – where this seems to be lacking (Golden Demon in particular).

With painters coming from all over the country, as far away as Scotland for the event it was really a great meeting of talent. Many people had only ‘met’ previously online, so this was a chance to see both the painter, and their models in real life.
