NHMGS is an organization of historical miniature gamers located in the Pacific Northwest. Our members are drawn from Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia. As our name implies, our focus is on historical miniature gaming: refighting the great battles of history using miniature figurines or models.
ENFILADE! is our flagship convention, which is held every year over Memorial Day weekend.
EVENTS provides information about other local conventions and game days that occur at other times of the year.
REGIONS is a review of the various places around the region where NHMGS has members and some information is provided about local gaming events.
COMMUNITY is an overview of the various online interactions we have, including our newsletter, The Citadel, our Yahoo! group, our Facebook page, online photo collections, and a growing blog roll of NHMGS members who can’t resist self-publishing their little lead adventures.
