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.
Gamers will find plenty to bide their time at Historicon 2022. The large-scale event will feature a schedule full of entertainment, including a weekend of Admiral of the Fleet games, starting with the Naval Battle of Tunis. Players will also be able to participate in tournaments, a War College, a painting contest, and a bevy of different tabletop and historical wargames.
More events will be revealed closer to the big event.
Wally’s Basement will also feature a series of tables where HMGS members can sell, exchange, and barter for historical miniatures, rulesets, and anything to fulfill their gaming needs. There will also be a selection of vendors filling the Exhibitor Hall with related goods, new games, handcrafted items, and so much more.
Historicon 2022 is in need of volunteers to fill 5, 10, and 20-hour shifts. Each level will come with perks and “thanks you’s,” including:
- Volunteer t-shirt
- Show access
- Food and exhibitor vouchers (available with 10 & 20-hours)
- 1/2 room for the weekend (available with 20-hours)
