Barrage began as a one-day mini-convention run by the Harford Area Weekly Kriegspielers (HAWKs). For the past few years Barrage has been held at the community center in Havre de Grace, Maryland, about 30 minutes north of Baltimore. This venue is convenient from I-95, has plenty of parking, is well lit, and is comfortable.
Barrage is a low-stress event, focusing on having fun with miniatures games of many different genres, scales, and sets of rules. In the past we’ve had a half dozen dealers, a few flea market tables, as many as 200 attendees, and thirty or more miniatures games. In 2012 we added a Flames of War tournament, sponsored by the I-95 gamers. In 2014 we added an ancient tournament. Beginning in 2016, the HAWKs took the bold step to grow Barrage into a two-day event. But none of this growth has detracted from the congenial atmosphere of Barrage.
We encourage you to set aside time on your calendar to participate in Barrage both Friday and Saturday. Bring your friends. Bring your children, because the HAWKs generally offer many kid-friendly games throughout Barrage. If you feel so inclined, we encourage you to sign up to run a game. But mostly we encourage you to come and enjoy the camaraderie of tabletop miniatures gaming with others from around the region.
