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 :
Friday - November 9th
Table 1
Time Period: WWII
Rules: Fletcher Pratt
Judge: Bill Nesbit

Naval Mayhem!
Another night of naval combat using a variation of the Fletcher Pratt Naval Game. Using night rules, this game will be played on the tabletop, so there will be no need to crawl around on the floor. We will be refighting the Battle of Tassafaronga, one of the many naval battles that helped give the waters off Guadalcanal the name Iron Bottom Sound.
 
It is the night of the long lances. Two weeks after the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal swept the Japanese from Iron Bottom Sound, the USN is feeling cocky. That will change after tonight. A US force of five cruisers and four DDs under the command of Rear Admiral Carleton H. Wright is attempting to surprise and destroy a Japanese force of eight DDs under the command of Rear Admiral Raizo "Tenacious" Tanaka. Tanaka's warships are attempting to deliver food and ammunition to the Japanese forces on Guadalcanal.
 
As the US Navy would discover, the two sides are far more balanced than they would first appear.
