Special Guest

HAHMGS is proud to welcome George Nafziger to Borderwars!

Special Guest, George Nafziger! Master of the OOB! Check out his online store (www.nafzigercollection.com) and the Nafziger COOB Collection online. If you've ever researched a battle that had gunpowder in it, you know who he is. If not, he is one of the most prolific and popular authors on military history in the world today. Author and translator of over 200 different titles on military history ranging from the Middle Ages through the Korean War, with a heavy emphasis on the Wars of the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and WWII. George has also been a US Navy Captain, director of the Napoleonic Society of America and the Napoleonic Alliance, and he was even an HMGS-East board member, but we won't hold that against him. George is also our first Guest of Honor with his own Wikipedia page!

Keep an eye on www.Hahmgs.org for more details as we get closer to the show. And be sure to spread the word!

We are saddened to report that Duke Seifried (Uncle Duke) passed away on September 29th, 2018. His miniature game extravaganzas, El Cid and The Black Gate, were the stars of the Guild's convention back in November of 2009 when he was our Special Guest.

Duke was an artist, designer, sculptor, painter, dioramist, model builder, product developer, game designer, writer, public speaker, musician, music arranger, entrepreneur, and gamemaster. He was the driving force in several firms in the early pioneering days of gaming: Der Kriegspielers, Custom Cast and Heritage USA. He was the first miniatures manufacturer to create licensed gaming figures from The Lord of the Rings, John Carter of Mars and Star Trek! Later at TSR, he was responsible for getting Dungeons & Dragons into mass market book stores like Waldenbooks and B-Daltons where many gamers of a certain age first discovered it.

But we knew him best as good old Uncle Duke - as he was affectionately known to every wargamer. We were honored and blessed to have had him at many shows in Kansas City over the years, and we look forward to his next regeneration.
