I want to say thanks to all the people who wished me well before and/or congratulated me after the show. It's no exaggeration to say that the online painting community has played a huge part in my return to the hobby and subsequent efforts to update and improve my painting skills. It was fantastic to get to meet and chat to so many other painters 'in the flesh' at GDUK and, along with my success, it went to make the day extra special.
I really need to take and post some finished pics of my winning minis over the next couple of days and I'll be posting a personal account of the big day later this week. But first I need to catch up on all the sleep I've lost through a combination of late night painting, nerves and (last night) over excitement. I'm very very tired but very very happy!
