Historical Miniatures Gaming Society—Pacific Southwest Chapter

Bolt-Action-Sherman.jpgHMGS-PSW chapter is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is to promote historical wargaming and the study of military history. Our territory covers Southern California as well as all of Arizona and Southern Nevada. We host two conventions of our own each year: Spring Campaign, and Fall Campaign. The precise dates of these conventions vary according to the Holiday calendar and space availability. In between our conventions, we attend major Southern California conventions and sponsor informal game days at local hobby game stores.

Mini-Wars Painting Contest

By now most of you would be familiar with our Captain Keennon figure. He was sculpted for us by Faron Betchley and cast for us by Askari Miniatures for Mini-Wars 2017. We figure two years is long enough to get one miniature painted, so we need you to bring them out! There will be a Miniature Painting contest at Mini-Wars 2019. Among the awards will be a $50 Cash Prize for the best Captain Keennon figure. It would be great to see a full squad of them on display at the convention.
