Incoming a new edition of the Interplanetario, the flagship event for all fans of the world of Infinity: The Game, and within it, the fourth edition of their most important painting contest, the Warcrow. This year 2019, Interplanetario will take place in Vigo during the days 16-18 August.
It’s important to note that this year there will be prizes for all the participants! Just like last year, there will be a bag of gifts for all the participants. It will be more exclusive than last year, with products from Vallejo and hobby-related goodies. In addition to the usual prizes for the winners: trophies, airbrushes, paint boxes, etc. This year there will be more honourable mentions, rewarding all the miniatures that are considered worthy of recognition even if they do not reach the podium.
Apart from the Warcrow, there will be all sort of activities organized around the hobby: masterclasses, speed painting competitions, painting and kitbashing tables with material to paint for free during the whole event, talks about conceptual design and sculpture, and many more.
This year I am lucky again to be part of the judging panel!
It’s important to note that unlike previous years, Interplanetario will no longer be held at the Maritime Station of Vigo, but rather at the Mar de Vigo Pazo Congres Auditorium (Av. Da Beiramar, 59), since for bureaucratic reasons it has not been possible to close the location with sufficient time in advance.
