With much anticipation and crossed fingers we are announcing that the 2021 AMFS Show is proceeding as normal. Whether we continue and are able to bring off the Show as usual will be determined between now and then. With the Show being about 5 months away, lots can happen, but we have to start our “machinery ” moving forward. As from a number of years past the local AMPS Chapter will be holding their armor show simultaneously with the figure show.
The 2021 version of our event will be held on February 19,20,21, 2021 at the Atlanta Hilton- Marietta Conference Center which is located at 500 Powder Springs. Marietta, GA. Room reservations may be made online, or by phone. The online link and phone number will be posted on the club website shortly. Our room rate for the Show is the same special rate as previously announced, $121/night.
Registration and General Admission fees are also the same. Registration is $30 and General Admission is $10 for the duration of the show. Unfortunately, because of the looming spectre of “cancellation” we are not going to accept pre-registrations for the 2021 Show. All forms necessary for Registration are downloadable from our web site so they may be printed and filled out at your leisure, and presented at Registration when you arrive for the Show.
Highlighting the beginning of the show will be two Workshops, one hosted by Scale 75 Miniatures and the APG, and a second hosted by the Atlanta AMPS Chapter. Thursday and Friday, February 18 and 19, before the show begins Julio Cabos will conducting a painting workshop and Brett Avants will lead a workshop on “Painting 1/35th scale figures”. The Cabos session will feature a specially produced figure in 75mm, based on a Bill Horan figure, of a French Infantryman of the AWI period, and a custom made base produced for the workshop. The Avants workshop will include a figure in the appropriate scale as well as paints and brushes. Fees for the sessions are; Cabos -$250 and Avants- $135. If you need more information on the first of these please contact the APG or Mike Stelzel and for the second, the AMPS Atlanta Chapter or Mike Reaves. Should events cause cancellation of the Show… all monies will be refunded.
As always, the Show will feature several educational seminars throughout Saturday and our always popular Hospitality Room will be open for a relaxing drink and conversations.
