I had the pleasure to attend the National Capital Model Soldier Society’s annual show at the Ernst Center on NOVA CC’s Annandale campus on Saturday, 9/10. I am what miniature painters might consider “workmanlike” in my approach to miniature painting, when they are being kind. This means that the units look pretty good in a group but not close up. This doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the art of miniature painting, and I love to see outstanding miniature soldier painting work.
There’s a lot of everything at these shows– dioramas, figures, stuff for sale, terrain, art by Keith Rocco, and juried shows.
NOVAG was there, to run demonstrations and hand out leaflets. Pretty good exposure.
