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: Winter Campaign in February and Fall Campaign in October. In between our conventions, we attend major Southern California conventions and sponsor informal game days at local hobby game stores

Announcing Spring Campaign on March 23rd, 2019 in Van Nuys, CA

We have some exciting events coming up this year that I would like to share with you. On March 23rd, 2019 we are having an event at the Van Nuys National Guard Armory located 17330 Victory Boulevard. We will begin at 9:00AM. John Harrel’s hot dog lunch will be included with the price of admission which is $15 for members and $20.00 for non-members. Submit via this google form to register to run a game or tourney.


Mini-Wars 2019 will be at Cal State Fullerton on September 28th and 29th.
If you are interested in hosting a game at either event, please let me or Harmon Ward, our Convention Chair, know as soon as possible.  We will need to know what event you would like to host and how much table space you will need. There is a form included in this mailer that outlines the information we need to list your game.I am also negotiating with the local hobby stores about conducting a regional Bolt Action tournament.  The idea is that each player will compete at their local hobby store.  There will be two winners per store, one Axis and one Ally.  There will then be a final single elimination tournament at a location be determined.  We are still working out the logistics, but I will let you know as soon as we have details.


As the New Year is approaching it is also time to renew your membership.  As most of you know, we started moving our annual calendar to the start of the year a long time ago. Working everything from convention to convention makes things difficult for our unpaid staff.  Please see the attached membership card and return it.  Please also consider making a monthly contribution from $5 to $10 on your credit card. I look forward to gaming with you in the future.
Dana Hohn, President HMGS-PSW
