November 10-12, 2006 will be one of the East Coast’s largest wargaming conventions – Fall In! Always entertaining with spectacular layouts and an excellent venue, Fall In! remains one of the cornerstone conventions of the Historical Miniatures Gaming Society.

It is held in scenic and historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, immediately south of the Gettysburg National Military Park on the famed Emmitsburg Road, used by thousands and thousands of Union soldiers to reach the battlefield. You too can use the road to reach the battleground – in this case, the miniature tabletop fields of honor! The event is held at the Eisenhower Inn and Conference Center, and the adjoining All-Star Sports Complex. Admission is FREE to browse the gaming and display areas (nominal admission to play in the games and to shop in the impressive dealer hall).

Hundreds of miniature wargames, including Civil War fights! Hundreds of thousands of miniature figures for sale! Flea market with books, games, used figures, terrain, and the like for sale!

If you have always been curious about miniature wargaming, NOW is the time to see the spectacle for yourself. Tramp the battlefield without the tourist crowds, enjoy the brisk fall air and scenery, and spend some time getting to know one of America’s most interesting hobbies – miniature wargaming.

See you there, soldier!
