FeR Miniatures Latest New Releases (Feb 23th)

FeR Miniatures Latest New Releases (Feb 23th)

Hi all!
As we were saying last week, we have moved to a new format in what it comes to new releases. Due to the increasing number of miniatures we have planned to add to our catalogue, from now onward we are releasing them in a weekly basis instead of monthly. So, as promised, here is another release…

This time, we have another classic miniature from the legendary Elite Miniaturas and it seems we are starting re-releasing the long unavailable Franco-Prussian War collection!

Elite Classics
ELI00006 – Lieutenant, 1st Zouave Regt

Sculpture: Stefano Cannone
Painting: Fernando Ruiz
Material: Resin
Number of parts of the kit: 8
Scale: 75 mm

There will be another release next week, so stay tuned!

Besides this, I would like to send a reminder about my upcoming seminars in Atlanta. Seats are beginning to run low on both! Let’s remind the details:

Updates on the upcoming painting seminars

Updates on the upcoming painting seminars

Hi all!
While we wait for the new releases, that are likely to be out soon, we wanted to update the information on the two seminars that currently we have on the reservation stage.
The first one is the one that Fernando will host on Toronto during the March 12th-13th weekend:

There’s only one spot left for that seminar, so you better hurry and contact the guys at The Bent Bristle if you are interested!

The seminar will be centred on painting busts and we will use a couple of minibusts, from a new Portraits line that will be released in March. We really think you’ll enjoy them.

 

About the second seminar, it will happen 2 weeks later in Barcelona and it is the one we are hosting in collaboration with our friends from Nuts Planet and Life Miniatures:

Barcelona Painting Seminar: The Koreans Strike Back

Barcelona Painting Seminar: The Koreans Strike Back

Hi all!

Maybe you have heard about the painting seminar that Nut’s Planet, Life Miniatures and FeR Miniatures organized on last November at Seoul, Korea. It was such an awesome experience that we have decided to do it again but, this time in Europe and bringing our Korean partners as teachers!

We are hosting a figure painting class in Barcelona, with Sang-Eon-Lee and Myeong Ha Hwang. As you know, among other impressive achievements, they are the box-art painters of the amazing products by Life Miniatures and Nuts Planet respectively. Besides that, they work professionally for collectors, have painted for several other miniatures companies and have won numerous awards on international competitions.

This course is intended to demonstrate an incredibly cool and particular way of painting, which is starting to be known as the “Korean School”, through the best possible teachers brought straight away for that purpose from Asia. We are offering the possibility of participating in what could be a unique experience for the European figure painters.

As Barcelona is reasonably near to many parts of Europe by car, and even more by a quick flight, we consider it is the perfect location for such an event. Also, we have here the FeR miniatures support, the weather is quite friendly and the tourist offer is simply immense (lots of options for sightseeing, lodging, eating, shopping, things to do, etc…). For that reason, the seminar will be hosted in English and Spanish, as our aim is to open it for a European audience.

The method of instruction will be personal enough to adapt to anyone’s level, but we recommend that you at least know the basics about acrylic paints and figure painting. We count on both teachers and four additional assistant teachers, fluent in both Spanish and English, in order to ensure that everybody is reasonably taken care of.

The assistant teachers are the renowned painters Dani Serrano, Marc Masclans, Jaume Ortiz and Fernando Ruiz, so we think that the pupils are in good hands.
This workshop will consist of two intensive sessions over two days (a full weekend). The seminar will be centered in showing the teachers’ approach on painting a bust face with acrylics and maybe other areas if time allows. We will use two different busts, both future releases from each one of their companies.

The teachers will bring along the sample busts previously painted from Korea and will paint on another copy live, in order to demonstrate the techniques, and then will assist the pupils in turns with their own versions. Each teacher will use a different bust; one will do the teaching on Saturday and the other one will do it on Sunday. Also, we will count with the aid of video tutorials, with both English and Spanish subtitles, that will be used to help explain any possible doubt.

Included in the cost of the seminar will be both busts, the use of the sponsored paints and materials and the complimentary lunch for both days. Also, at the end of the seminar we will make available all the video tutorials used for each step.

The premises have room enough to host a small exhibition with works made by the teachers and the pupils, so you can have the chance to comment and get explaining of further techniques and doubts with in-hand examples.

Also we plan to do some other general activities in order to relax from the class hours and get the pupils to know each other in a good atmosphere of friendship and comradeship, like a pre-seminar party on Friday and a special dinner event for Saturday.

FeR Miniatures  August New releases

FeR Miniatures August New releases

Hi all
This month we really have a lot of new things to tell. New releases, a new collaboration line, new seminar announcements and, of course, the Miniatures day!

So, first things first, let’s have a look to the new releases.

The first would be a nice complement to the already existing Continental Infantryman bust, a cool and somewhat posh British Light Cavalryman:

Also, as mentioned above, we are really pleased to announce the beginning of a new collaboration with the talented miniature artist: Raffaelle Picca! Most of you might know him as one of the most prominent members of MASSIVE VOODOO, a miniatures blog sited in Germany that is really important in the hobby community. Raffa even had a line of miniatures of his own, FORGED MONKEY, and we have made a deal with him to bring his product as a new collaboration line on FeR Miniatures.

So we will be releasing some of his oldies but goldies along REALLY cool stuff that he has in store. All these products will be exclusively available through FeR miniatures, either on our web store or at the usual retailers that carry our product so we hope to make them easier to get for all of you, starting with this two guys:

So, if you are interested, just drop an e-mail to Vlado at vlado@dievincis.de and he will inform you about it.

And there’s another seminar also. This time is one of those specially faraway places that makes the whole thing really interesting. Nothing less than Seoul, Corea!

And there’s more. The seminar will be hosted by me and my friend Jaume Ortiz there, in collaboration with two incredibly nice miniature’s companies we all love: Nuts Planet and Life Miniatures!

It will be a privilege to be there and count with the assistance of artists like Myeong Ha Hwang or the one and only Sang-Eon-Lee:
