CoMMiESFest 2015 - pics
« on: September 09, 2015, 03:29:45 PM »
The only other show I have been to this year was the Region 10 Regional run by the Colorado Modeling Militia Enjoying Sci-Fi, hence, the CoMMiES. 
This was in Denver and they had a pretty good turnout.  I actually had some models in the vendors area and a few entries in the contest as well as on display promoting the US SIGs including the What If SIG which I may be taking over soon (god help us all).



I sold more than I bought and actually took home two 2nds and a 3rd place medals (ok, one category only had two of us entered and the other two had 3 entrants so I at least placed above somebody once).

The theme was 50 Shades of Green and there were a couple of large group entries trying for the special award including one that was just armor.  Think each had 50 models but I didn't count them.

As those that know me I tend to take a few pics.

Great coverage.
I have run into quite a few of the Commies guys over the years at Wonderfest in Louisville. Even have a Commies T-shirt which is always a hoot at modelling shows.

Really would love to get over to a CommiesFest one day

I'll let you know when they pick a date for next years.  Probably in February again.

Also they have asked me to be the Head Judge next year.  Didn't even know we had a category for Heads but guess I can judge it.

Will you give extra points if it is a Talking Head?   :o

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Depends on how animated.  Always more chances to mess up when you add extras.

Will the entries that are less than 1:1 scale be judged as Shrunken Heads and the ones that are greater than 1:1 scale be Politicians?

Will really depend on if there are enough entries to create a split.

Quite appropriate in Australia as it appears likely that we will soon have our fourth PM in eight years, fifth if you count the one who was resurrected before becoming the only one of them to have been voted out by the public instead of deposed by their own party.
