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.
CONTACT gives you a few of the more significant NHMGS contacts you may find useful.

1/21 – Enfilade Sponsorship
We have some sponsors this year
With special thanks to Dean Clarke for making this happen: FIRST SPONSOR is WARLORD GAMES.
You’ve all heard of them, but did you know how seriously cool they are? This year they have kindly donated some very thematic goodies we will be making available as prizes.
– The Last Argument of Kings
– Liberty or Death
– Blood on the Nile
– Glory Hallelujah!
(and a smattering of lovely little miniatures!)
The next time you place an order with Warlord, maybe drop a note in the comments box and tell them how appreciative you are of this generosity.
Any idea for what qualifies as a prize, throw in a comment below and let me know. We don’t want to monetize the theme/period winners per se, and we already give placards and medals for this, but maybe best of show and the best of the painting competition?
