sponsors the finest historical miniatures wargaming
conventions anywhere, some drawing in excess of
3700 attendees. The Chapter kicks in with Fall In! each
November down in Lancaster, followed by Cold Wars also at Lancaster, PA
each March, and ending with the Grandaddy of them
all, Historicon each July, now being held at the huge Valley Forge Convention Center near King of Prussia, PA. Its fun, friends, some respectable retail therapy and historical miniature wargaming at its finest and then some.
How good are our conventions?
Well, let's just say that the Wall
Street Journal didn't
call Historicon the "Mother of all Wargaming
Conventions" for nothing. Check out the hyperlinks
below for all the latest info on our conventions,
or to simply see what you missed if you couldn't
attend. You will also find the latest weather at both King of Prussia and Lancaster as well as convenient driving directions courtesy of Yahoo Maps. Its sort of our way of making attendance at an HMGS con as familiar and comfortable as slipping into a old pair of slipers at the end of a particularly hard day.
Its by far the best gaming, shopping, competition and downright fun you'll ever have in this fascinating hobby, so make preparations to attend one and all. And given such non-wargaming attractions such as the King of Prussia Mall or Lancaster's Dutch Wonderland, there really isn't any reason this couldn't be a full family affair.
So by all means enjoy, and we will see you at the next HMGS
