The Capital Palette painting competition at the NOVA Open wargaming convention has the honor to be hosting in its display cabinets a collection of Infinity studio miniatures by the great Ángel Giráldez.
Corvus Belli's Infinity creator, Gutier Lusquinos, hand-delivered the models from Spain!
Gutier shared with me a story that he heard, about a Rackham painter who was carrying Rackham studio models through customs. The customs official demanded to open the case -- which he proceeded to open upside down. A collection of one-of-a-kind miniatures fell onto the floor and shattered...along with a poor artist's heart.
I want to thank Gutier and Angel for risking the hamfisted handling of their beautiful miniatures through customs! But as Gutier noted, great art is meant to travel and meant to be shown in person to admirers throughout the world.
