Oh boy, what a con.
I look forward to the NOVA every year. The staff are all excellent, the location’s just 10 minutes from my house, and the painted models in the display cabinets are gorgeous. What more could I ask for? How about awesome hobby seminars all four days from Justin McCoy (Founder, Secret Weapon Miniatures) and Roman Lappat & Raffaele Pica (Massive Voodoo). Let’s also not forget Jessica Rich, who paints for nearly every mini manufacturer out there (like Reaper and Dark Sword, to name a few). I took six (6) classes this year, with at least one from each of the four teachers.
