FIGZ 2014

Last sunday the members of Benno's Figures Forum had their yearly meeting at Arnhem. It's a small meeting but a very nice one. It's always fun to meet people interested in the hobby and you only know from the www. 

The meeting found place in two rooms. One room was for the wargamers and the traders, the other one for us, where we could show our work and do a little painting. He had a lot of fun! But let me show you the pictures. They tell more as words.

Firts pictures is the wargaming and traders room. On the left there was a very big diorama in progress of the battle of Cambrai of our good friend Hans.

Second picture is of the room where we had some space to show our work.
