This year’s MillenniumCon theme is a reflection of the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme in the First World War.
One hundred years ago in 1916, the British and French launched a joint offensive designed like all offensives to be a decisive event in the war. On the first day of the offensive on July 1, 1916 the British lost over 57,000 men. By the end of the campaign in November 1916, at least one million British, French and German soldiers were dead in the mud and the war was still a stalemate. These men entered the battle out of a sense of duty, honor or perhaps determination. They marched into the glory every soldier earns in battle, but like so many actions in history, their glory was ultimately hopeless. It did not resolve a conflict or bring peace closer, but they did their duty nonetheless.
This year MillenniumCon GMs are invited to find and present a battle in which soldiers fought fiercely and bravely for a great cause only to find their end without a decisive moment.

What kind of convention is MillenniumCon?
MillenniumCon 19 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 19 the largest miniature convention in Texas.
