WEDNESDAY NIGHT GAMERS OF ALEXANDRIA

Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

www.hmgs.org

 

The Historical Miniatures Gaming Society (HMGS) is the premiere organization promoting the hobby of historical miniatures gaming. They run great conventions (with chapters all over the nation), and they have an extensive list of hobby suppliers, historical web sites, clubs, organizations, and other resources that are very helpful.

Nowadays, you can find just about anything with a search engine. But there are a few websites whose value may not be readily apparent. So we share with you our favorite resources as a club.

Fernando Enterprises

www.miniaturelovers.com

 

Fernando Enterprises is a Sri Lanka painting service with good prices and solid service. It can take a few months for an order to return, but if you’re not in a hurry, this is a great way to build up your armies painlessly.

The Last Alliance

www.hmgs.org

 

A wonderful resource for hobbyists who love wargaming in Middle Earth and the lands of J.R.R. Tolkien.  Lots of great articles on gaming, scenarios, painting, conversions, and terrain-building. Lots of photos of hobbyists’ efforts, the latest news, and web community campaigns.

Napoleon, His Armies and Enemies

A one-stop location for Napoleonic gamers who need information on the history of the period, uniforms, organization of troops, battles, and more. Very comprehensive.

Out of the World Games

and Accessories

Buried in the website of Imex Model Co. Inc., this one web page is all that’s important. These models can be canabalized to make all kind of industrial products, from WW II factories to spaceship corridors. Pretty cheap, too.

Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture Inc.

www.hmgs.org

 

Molds and plans to build everything from castles to dungeons to spaceships—one plaster brick at a time. Actually a great product, and I use a form of dental cement that’s a lot more durable than plaster. It takes some patience—but you won’t regret the results.

An underappreciated and impressive collection of scenery products. Need ruins for a Lord of the Rings game. They got ‘em. Need a table and lamp for a medieval castle? They got ‘em. I could spend a small fortune here.

Ebob Miniatures

products/rebellion.htm

 

A small product line, but a good one. Includes Mongols, gunfights, fantasy, and World War II German POW camp figure line.

 

Forge World

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/

 

The products are pricey—but that’s because they’re among the best in the world. A small division of Games workshop, Forge World is where you find the huge, resin vehicles and terrain. The high-end items, which can go for $1,000 or more, may be unattainable for the majority of us—but I can’t help but visit this page every week or two (and weep).
