Atlanta Military Figure Society

About Us

In 1979, the show moved to the Admiral Benbow Inn (now the Best Western Hotel in Doraville, GA), beginning the on-going expansion of the show and the transition to 3 improved sites over the next 16 years. A conscious effort within the club to educate modelers led to an extensive club newsletter, “The Rebel Sabretache”, which flourished until the mid 1990’s when new mediums for information were well established in the hobby. Its presence in the miniature hobby drew more members to the organization and the hobby of miniature figure painting.

In 1995, the club was reorganized with a fresh vision and renamed the Atlanta Military Figure Society (AMFS). To better serve the figure modeling community, the club meetings were moved to Saturday mornings, more “hands on” activities were incorporated into the meetings and the show was revitalized with a move to the Crowne Plaza on Atlanta-Powers Ferry.

In 2018 the show was moved to Atlanta Mariott Century Center.
