This year will take place the 18th edition of the most important Italian painting contest, the Grog Trophy throughout Lucca Games the best Italian Convention.
Usually the best Italian painters compete to win the Grog Sword or one of the
trophies but this year the organization has contacted me asking to spread the
word around to get some international entries.
Actually I'm looking for stores, clubs or individuals that collect the
miniatures from other painters in their countries and send them here. At the end
of the fair they will get back the miniatures and distribute them to the
owners... this will optimize the expenses.
That's all we will meet in Lucca!
(Sorry for the bad English, if you have some question or corrections please mail me, thanks! - DP)
