I plan on running a 40mm Scale AWI battle on both show’s Friday night. My idea is to recapture the Toy soldier type games I used to run there in by gone years. I shot a short video which I have linked below post here and have taken some pictures. The game table isn’t quite done but I hope the video and pictures will stimulate some interest.

Here is a note from the president.
The gaming season is now into full swing! There are many events happening in October, and even on the same day on October 12. If you are not attending Dave Valentine’s Makers Fair Game Day in Amherst, NH on the 12th, then you need to come to the MHWA Game Day in the Cumberland Room at the Double Tree Hotel in South Portland! The MHWA Game Day is an open to the public, no cover charge event. Please spread the word and invite as many as you can to attend to play and see what the MHWA has to offer.
One of the benefits of being an MHWA member is the ability to sign up for a game in advance. Please enter your name onto the list to reserve a spot in a game. The line up is full of great games being run by excellent game masters! Navigate to the document/game sign up sheet at this LINK
Another very important task that we, the members of the Maine Historical Wargamers Association need to do on October 12 is to vote for next year’s officers.

If you would like to nominate someone, please send the nomination to this email address: email@example.com Nominations will close at Midnight, October 10 to allow names to be placed on the ballot.
