Let me introduce Mitchell, he is the one who is going to give the workhop at FIGZ this year,
I asked him to write a bit about himself:

My name is Mitchell Basran. I'm 33 years old and I'm from Amersfoort the Netherlands. I have been painting wargame models for a couple of years now. I started with SC-fi wargames. After a while I was looking for tutorials on the internet to improve my painting skills. I came upon the most amazing tutorials. But the fun thing was they were all from scale modelers not war gamers. I learned the techniques and tried out all of the scale modeling product I found a way to combine them into the war gaming scale. It gave my models so much more detail, realism and really stand out on the gaming table.

Since January 2018 I have been contracted by AK Interactive one of the biggest producers of paint and all types of products you need for this hobby. And been collaborating with different companies like Rubicon and Warlord games.

And on the 3rd of June at Figz i would like to teach you as much of the techniques and products i use for my models. If you want to see my work check my instagram account in the link below.

Hope to see you all in June !!

Oh man I wish I could attend FIGZ 2018!

Mitchell aka Tank Warlord appears to be simply a tremendous painter and weatherer if his instagram account is any indication. Attendees are in for a serious treat.

Why not coming to Arnhem this year? Combine it with a vacation nearby NL, and you can attend Figz too.

I would love to but my boys are a bit too young atm. When they are a bit older and can appreciate it, we'll turn it into the trip of their lives!

1. Camera => OK
2. Brushes => OK
3. Money => OK
4. Something for the bring and show => OK
5. Competition entries => OK
6. Vlaai => OK :-D
7. FIGZ shirt => OK

and a very good mood! :-)

See you all tomorrow! :thumbup:

I have nothing for bring and show or the competitions. But after three group builds it is ok, I think. Everything else is ready as well. I am also looking forward to see you all.
