Sponsored by the Historical Miniatures Gaming Society, Historicon brings together the largest gathering of historical wargamers in North America for four days worth of tabletop gaming, demonstrations, and tournaments. Historical miniature hobbyists and professionals gather from all over to share trade secrets and participate in a massive market full of exclusive and new merchandise from recognized exhibitors and up-and-coming names. Historicon features training sessions and discussions led by leading names in the industry. Though history is the overall theme, fantasy, steampunk, horror, and science fiction miniatures and tabletop gaming also have a presence.
