    Hi All,
    I have some breaking news for you all from our club show the Sword & Lance 2016. Steve Kirtley has been in talks with one of the world best known iconic modellers. Steve has spent sometime chasing this one down and was even in the U.S.A. finalising this for our club show earlier this month. Well done Steve K. a great coup for our show and club.

    I am very pleased to announce that BILL HORAN (from the USA) is coming to Sword & Lance 2016. The show will be on the 9th April at the usual venue.

    Bill is arguably the most well known figure modeller in the world & his books & magazine articles are excellent. He has won Best of Show at virtually every International show that there is. But has yet to cross scalpels with the chimp at the S & L.;)

    Bill will give a talk entitled "Recreating History in Miniature" and it is intended that we will charge for tickets to this unique event. As soon as I have more details I will update this post. Certainly not one to miss. He will also bring some of his latest figures as well as also giving a sculpting demo.

    I hope you are all as excited as I am and this is the just the icing on the cake for our show. I hope that you will all put this in your diaries and endeavour to make it to this wonderful friendly show of ours.

    Again well done Steve.(y)

    cheers
    Richie

    Looks a great event. But a 10 hours drive is to far to make it for a day.

    Marc, There are at least 2 daily KLM flights from Schiphol to Durham Tees Valley airport which is 10 minutes from the show! Might be worth a look - it would be great to see you there.

    Well, i think about it. Cannot find if it is a two days event or one day. That makes a difference into the price of the flight.

    That's quite a coup to get Bill over to S&L guys, well done you lot.

    Bill's 'responsible' for Tommy's War, it was his book that inspired me to return to modelling, and in particular figure modelling. I've spent hours and hours studying his work.

    I've booked it in to the 2016 show schedule and booked a trading table there, so Tommy's War is on its way to sunny Darlington?

    I've never been to Darlington before, but its ooop North, so I guess I'll be living on a diet of Greggs while I'm there. I'll take extra clothing as well as its a lot closer to the arctic circle.

    The only thing that can stop me now is if the mighty Birmingham City make the FA Cup final in 2016 - so I'll definitely be in Darlington!

    Darren, Glad to hear that you are coming - it'll be good to see you there. I think the cup final is about a month or so later? (in the unlikely event that Birmingham make it.....). There's a nice cafe (not owned by Greggs) in the venue so you won't go hungry!

    Ah, I got confused with the date at the top of the thread, now I see its 9th April ;)

    I think you'd have got there a month late....

    Yes, I must remember to ignore Richies 'put a date in your diary' posts, especially when he lists the wrong date! ;)

    Hi Darren, I see what you mean - it's showing the date when Richie first posted & it's confusing. The date of the show is Saturday 9th April. Perhaps Richie may be able to alter it when he reads these posts? Cheers, Steve

    All you need to know Darren :D
    Ooooppp North, also known as The Grim North or T'up North...... basically if you're English it means anywhere North of where you live.
    If you're from Glasgow it's a legendary land of milk and honey bathed in sunshine occupied by a golden race hell bent on buying visitors many beers.
    To get there you need to seek out the mythical map showing a secret route past strategic piles of rubble, coal bings, along overgrown canal banks and over disused railway crossings ....... Then and only then will you enter the mystic portals of the closed and derelict factory where you will be greeted by Ritchie, Dennis and Lester and other acolytes recognisable by their clogs. flat caps and tshirt showing the logo of a Fishy on a little Dishy.

    It's safely in the diary (y) an outstanding capture for Steve especially following on from Mike.
    S&L, keeping a tradition of some stellar guests, I remember an excellent presentation by Marjins van Gils

    Quite a coup indeed. I've had the good fortune to have been able to see Bill's work up close on a number of occasions at shows this side of the pond, and they really are inspirational pieces. Congrats on being able to arrange this seminar and I wish I could be there.
