Further Event Information

Lots of stuff going on... check below for details and links.


Games Plus Historical Miniatures Night 

Every 2nd Friday of the month HMGS hosts a game night at Games Plus, in Mt. Prospect. 

The type of miniatures game rotates every month as guest GMs put on their finest.  The game does not have to be necessarily historical but is always fun.  If you are interest in stopping by to play, watch or just get some terrain painting ideas please do.  We welcome guest GMs as well.  If you have any questions or would like some additional information please contact Craig Borri, craigborri@gmail.com

The game is open to all, but HMGS members receive special a 10% discount on all purchases.  (Just show your membership card). 

And in upcoming months :


Next game : January 13th -

Battle: Austerlitz 
Judge: Steve Fratt
Scale: 6mm
Rules: FrattNap: 6mm Wargaming from an Epic Point of View

See if you can duplicate Napoleon's greatest triumph, or as the Austrians and Russians stave off disaster. We will be using Steve's new rules, which he summarizes below:

"We are using my Napoleonic rules from a line of rules I am developing called Frattspiel.

I have gone back to reading the sources and figured out we need to design rules asymmetrically by arm, with the psychological factors affecting humans as the line of design rather than following the material ballistics and their seemingly more predictable outcomes. 

Most games have a linear logic to them which we can follow - my new approach comes at it from a "valency" angle where the human psychic can resist so much and then, almost unpredictably, breaks apart. 

Gamers will play the decisions and be less obsessed with mastering the rules." 

Other Happenings at Games Plus:
Fourth Saturday, noon until 8PM - WUMMS runs large Ancients (DBMM) or Napoleonics scenario battles, but other games are played. Stop by for more information. (see below)
