    Cool! :) I have been retouching some of my older stuff as well as doing some new. I should have maybe 5-6 minis with me at least.

    Well i\'m in Paris, absolutely knackered though. Been awake since Wednesday morning at 7.30am. Was up all last night finishing an entry.

    Got to the hotel and broke an entry! So fixed that (rather shabbily) and had to ring Tim and ask him to bring an emergency load of blue tack over from England because I can\'t be buggered to go try and find any in Paris lol

    So I think i might try and have 40 winks, before doing anything more. lol

    Fromage, thats it lol Laura wanted a cheese sarnie, and ended up with chicken!

    Didn\'t stay long today, probably just a couple of hours, just entered figures and spoke to a few people, Sven, Anders, Seb, some of the French lot.
    Anyhoo, some photos from today (cabinets were about 1/4 full as not all entrys were in) The photos arnt great, some are a bit blurry etc... but they should do! Some fantastic stuff there, really looking forward to the next two days getting to see loads more stuff :)

    (EDIT removed this gallery, see below for an updated version END EDIT)

    Enjoy, even though the pics are crappy. Should have a load more soon.

    Enjoy.

    Any body know what the coloured dots on some of the figures mean? Or are they just a way of identifying a persons figures?

    Thanks for the pics, Matty. It\'s nice to see Allan\'s new daemonette shaping up. First there was a picture where it still very wip in Brittany, and here the sculpt is almost done lol

    Yep, just identification. Plus they are numbered, all my entry\'s are 28 so I can get them back with the ticket I was given.

    Also went for a meal and a game of pool with Louis Wong tonight, cool bloke!

    Going along tomorrow so will hopefully get a load more photos of the entry\'s.

    Got a load more photo\'s, stuck them in a new gallery so you don\'t have to trawl through the other stuff. Mostly the cabinets as the were full today, some of the ceremony bits and then some of Paris afterwards.

    Not going to say who won what, as I can\'t really remember, plus il let people blow their own horns :D

    *EDIT* Give me 30mins for the pics.

    Sweet! I bet this was a helluva weekend for you and Laura.

    Thanks for the daily updates as well, I (and I bet many others here) really appreciate it.

    Nearer the end I have a few pics of the award bit, so you can see a few people who won stuff (though I honestly do not know who won what lol Cedric had to translate for me an Tim!)

    Met some great people, and had a good chat. Edgar was pretty stand out for me, great bloke and just jaw dropping sculpts.

    Ainu, yea, great weekend. Laura wasn\'t keen on the mini related stuff, but didn\'t really mind it. Plus there is so much to see and do in Paris its amazing. Never really sat down all 5 days lol

    Looks excellent.
    I will definitely try and make next years. Just need to paint something.
    I see the McVeys were there. I thought I recognised some of his old stuff in the photos. Still looks fantastic now.

    I am really jealous.

    I had a really great time there! The display cabinets were really amazing. They were completely packed with gorgeous stuff. The best part was when everyone took there stuff out at the end and you could walk around and pick people\'s minis up and look at them closely. Nobody seemed to mind that you picked them up, even if they didn\'t know me. I too, met Edgar (degra) and talked with him a bit and looked at his stuff (completely jawdropping...). He is a really cool guy. Also talked quite a bit with Sebastian Archer (automaton) and looked at his minis (also completely jawdropping), and he\'s also a top guy! I met Matty, Tim (freakinacage), Cédric (green stuff), Sven (Avelorn), Jérémie Bonamant and a bunch of other people as well.

    The McVey\'s were there, the whole family. Both Ali and Mike got gold in Master painting (not very surprising). Mike brought some of his old classic paintjobs from the early 90s and in many aspects they are still completely top class. The only area where you can really see their age, quality wise, is in the metallics, where there have been a lot of progression in technique since then. And, of course, his newer stuff is absolute top class!

    Oh, and I got a silver in Master paining! :flip: It still hasn\'t really sunk in...

    The airport security staff broke one of my entries when I travelled home today, so I have some repairing to do before I can photograph it and post it here.
