About HotLead 2018

Canada’s Finest Miniature Wargame Convention At The Arden Park Hotel 552 Ontario St Stratford, ON N5A 3J3 Canada MARCH 16, 17 & 18, 2018 Proudly hosting a wargaming packed weekend since 1995, this well established con has something for everyone. We are capturing the objective and bringing it home for another year! If you’re ready for a fun-filled weekend of tabletop antics, buying and selling of all things wargame, and general tomfoolery, we expect to see you this March in Stratford, Ontario for Hotlead 2018. Gamers come to watch and play some of the finest wargames in North America. Every year you can be sure to find a wide variety of genres and rules being used. Expect to see period games set in anything from Ancients, Napoleonic, and Renaissance to WWI and WWII. There is always an excellent variety of historical periods amongst the games. Other genres that you might see include zombies or post-apocalyptic, superheroes, fantasy and SciFi games. You can almost guarantee someone will run Warhammer 40K, LOTR, or something Star Wars. Our really creative GMs will homebrew their own rules, making their game a truly unique experience. Every GM volunteers to run their game. They are truly committed to making each Hotlead the best year yet, one game at a time. Over the course of the weekend there are 5 game time slots: Friday evening (7:00 PM), Saturday morning (9:30 AM), Saturday afternoon (2:00 PM), Saturday evening (7:00 PM), and Sunday morning (9:30 AM). Attendees register to participate in games day of. Any tournaments that require pre-registration are posted to our website with instructions for contacting the GM. Need more miniatures? Need more terrain? Each year attendees bring wargaming related consignment items to sell. If you have a need to clear up space (even if only to fill it again with more models), we tend to have a room full of interested buyers. If you are an interested buyer, you won’t be disappointed with the motley selection of second-hand wargaming materials you’ll find at our Bring & Buy tables. Our staff run the consignment operations, and we collect a portion of the profit to add to Hotlead’s annual charitable donation. Want to know how it works? Please check out our website’s Bring & Buy page for instructions and forms. Saturday is always a whirlwind of fun - always booming with activity at the Bring & Buy, crowds of happy gamers, and many friendly reunions. Conventions are all about finding people who like the same stuff as you do. Join our Facebook group and follow us on Twitter and get amped-up for Hotlead 2018! Some of the more passionate wargaming enthusiasts in the room are bound to be our vendors. There are booths around the perimeter of the gaming room selling anything from codex books and models, to board games and more. Check in and see who’s selling this year. Want to show off your skills?
