Freak Wars Online will keep the essence of our physical event. We want to continue being the biggest event in Spain of wargames, painting, modelling, cosplay and board games, but taking into account the current situation we also want to take care of the health of all attendees. Therefore, we will move to Internet the best talks with painters, sculptors and brands; the painting, sculpture or cosplay contests; and some tournaments. All for continue being the best meeting point to discover the best news of the wargame, painting and cosplay world.
The event will be live broadcasted on our Youtube channel (don't forget to subscribe to keep up to date with everything we are uploading) and on Twitch. This year as a novelty, we are opening a Discord channel to the whole community where you will be able to interact with all the attendees not only during the event, but throughout the year.
