    There is an INCREDIBLE amount of talent squeezed into a Poland shaped box over there. So many of my favorite sculpts and paintjobs come from Poland. Wonderful people that I only know from the net I would love to meet over there one day. Also CofC is another great website very worth checking out if you haven't! Hope they have growth and success with this years event!

    Here is the announcement with additional details at Chest of Colors:

    If you have any questions, I’ll be happy to help :)

    oh, and one more thing - Hussar is not organised by CofC, we are just helping people behind it :)
