About Us

HMGS Mid-South Presents


The Premier Gaming Convention in Nashville TN

As we gather again for gaming and fellowship we look forward to seeing you there!


Besides the amazing games, there are several ACW battlefields within easy driving distance, like: Franklin, Thompson’s Station, Spring Hill, Nashville and Stones River. Nashville is home to great restaurants, shopping and movies and can provide plenty of entertainment and fun for the entire family if you’d like to make Nashcon into a family adventure! 


HMGS-MidSouth is a non-profit organization incorporated in the state of Tennessee serving members primarily South of the Mason-Dixon Line and East of the Mississippi River. We encourage the study of military history and conflict simulation, and believe a lot can be learned by adding fun into the learning of history. HMGS Mid-South is an accredited region of the Historical Miniatures Gaming Society, one of ten such regions currently recognized by the National Board of Directors. 



Most of these game masters were original play-testers, developers and designers of “Johnny Reb” and this is a great chance to come out and play with some of the guys that were in John Hill’s gaming group and helped develop “Johnny Reb” into what it has become over the years. This is a group of friendly gamers that enjoy teaching the rules to others, so no worries if you’ve never played before....you will be welcomed! 

Johnny Con

The Con within a Con

Johnny Con is an annual gathering of fans of the rules and games of the late John Hill, with the focus on his famous set of ACW rules “Johnny Reb”. We have recently been getting together every year as part of Nashcon and if you are interested in playing or learning these fantastic rules there is no better place to do it! 



Vendors will be added as they are confirmed.
