What kind of convention is MillenniumCon?
MillenniumCon 20 is a three day convention that supports Tabletop Wargaming with Historical Miniatures. We provide a unique event to celebrate our passion for playing wargames, crafting the miniatures and terrain used in these games, and researching the historical events that inspire our imagination. While we do focus on games involving historical time periods, our convention caters to many different gaming tastes and styles. Unlike other conventions that support multiple genres, we don't have one group trying to be all things to all people. There are also a limited number of RPG games but the emphasis is on miniatures games. Because of our focus on miniatures, we are proud to call Millennium 20 the largest miniature convention in Texas.
MillenniumCon will be hosting several championship tournaments for friendly competition and an opportunity to improve your state or national rankings. All tournaments require a Three-Day or Single-Day convention pass to participate.
This year we will are planning the following tournaments. More to come.
Bolt Action Tournament
Flames of War Tournament
Victory in the Pacific Tournament
Classic Battletech Gunslinger and BT Open Tournaments
Hordes of the Things Texas Championship and GBnU Republic of Texas Leg
DBA2.2+ Texas Championship

This year’s MillenniumCon theme is a reflection of the anniversary of the Battle of Stalingrad. It was a major battle of World War II in which Nazi Germany and its allies fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in Southern Russia.
Marked by fierce close quarters combat and direct assaults on civilians by air raids, it is often regarded as one of the single largest (nearly 2.2 million personnel) and bloodiest (1.7–2 million wounded, killed or captured) battles in the history of warfare. An extremely costly defeat for German forces, the Army High Command had to withdraw vast military forces from the West to replace their losses.
This year, MillenniumCon GMs are invited to include the theme in their game submissions.
The con will be awarding recognition for the best theme events, so be sure to indicate your event is meant to be a con theme event.
