Historicon 2012, “Historical Miniature Gaming’s Biggest Summer Vacation,” is held at the Fredericksburg Expo & Conference Center in Fredericksburg, VA, and will take place July 19-22.
Each year HISTORICON draws about 3500-4000 people from around the world and around 100 vendors offering everything you need to recreate military battles from across history or alternate battles drawn from your own imagination. Scenarios can range from historical ancients to history making moderns, while some even create games from the rich worlds of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. There are tournaments, seminars and a Hobby University of painting classes and events. Activities go from 8am until the wee hours. If you are a gamer, military history buff and within driving distance you should try and make it – even for just the day – you will love it!
