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.
Please enjoy this short video from MillenniumCon18 (2016). It will give you a glimpse of the convention experience.
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 are planning several tournaments. For all the details concerning tournaments, please go to the Tournaments page.
This year, we are proud to offer the Official Lone Star Historical Miniatures Polo shirt! This is a high quality polo shirt with a detailed, embroidered LSHM logo over the left pocket. The polo comes in two colors, Blue and Red, and sizes from Small to 6XL. You have probably seen someone wearing this shirt at a previous event and wondered how to get one for yourself. Now is your chance! Order online when you register for the convention or place an order at the front desk at the convention.

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.
