HMGS-South RECON 2024: A Celebration of Rapid Deployment Forces in Wargaming

Attention all history buffs and fans of miniature wargaming! Prepare for an immersive experience like no other at HMGS-South RECON 2024. This year’s event promises to be a spectacular gathering for Florida and South Georgia’s historical wargaming tabletop community. Mark your calendars for April 25th to 28th, 2024, and join us at the Wyndham Orlando Resort & Conference Center Celebration Area, located at 3011 Maingate Lane, Kissimmee, Florida.

This year, we delve into the thrilling theme of Rapid Deployment Forces (RDF), a pivotal innovation in 20th-century warfare. Experience the adrenaline rush as you simulate troops parachuting out of aircraft, being deployed by gliders, or helo-dropped into critical engagements. But it’s not just about the modern tactics; we’re taking a journey through history to explore the roots of RDF.

From the Mongol soldiers of the Khan, renowned for their ability to move armies at a seemingly supernatural pace, to the New England Colonial Militia, dubbed ‘Minutemen’ for their swift and surprising deployment against British forces, the concept of rapid deployment has been a game-changer in warfare. Even the Viking raiders, with their clinker-built longships, exemplified the element of surprise in their naval expeditions.

At RECON 2024, we’re not just looking back; we’re also speculating on the future of warfare. Imagine games where troops are space-deployed or even teleported into battle! The possibilities are endless, and the excitement is guaranteed.

So, whether you’re a seasoned gamer or new to the world of historical wargaming, RECON 2024 is the perfect venue to explore, learn, and have fun with the theme. Engage in challenging games, connect with fellow enthusiasts, and celebrate the rich tapestry of military history through the lens of tabletop gaming.
