Contest is On! GPW Project gives away swag!


The Greater Pacific War Project has its first contest. Check out this article for details. The project is giving away T-shirts, art prints, calenders, mugs, mouse pads and other stuff. Entering the contest is as simple as signing up for the forums.

The Greater Pacific War Project is an educational effort to tell the story of the Pacific Theater of World War II. It is an ongoing project with a major events being held at Nashcon in late Spring and Historicon in Summer of 2006. The website and forums will support historical miniature enthusiasts with information, scenearios, TO&E and plenty of advice on gaming in the period. The Pacific Theater was a lot more than a few bloody battles for sandy islands. The role played by many nations and the diversity of combat in the air, at sea, in amphibious operations, land operations, urban battles and so forth is very diverse. The project hopes to encourage gamers to look at this theater more closely and to remind visitors to the site of the history and sacrifices of this time period.

The project has been growing over the last 2 months with new events added to both the Nashcon and Historicon schedules. There are currently 15 volunteers and a lot of effort is being made to make the games as top notch as possible. Many thanks to HMG magazine which is giving us some of their space at Historicon to use for the project.
