What part of Virginia? If northern there is Huzzahs in Ashburn. It has a good staff and a good selection of the usual companies. He does stock some historical ranges, but can order what you might need.

Old Dominion Military Society is a great option:

Some specifics as to what games you play may help. But there are a bunch of stores in that area.

Thanks for the replies. Will definitely check those out.I will be moving to Virginia beach. I play mainly saga or black power but open to anything.

Is Campaign HQ – in the Ward's Corner neighborhood of Norfolk – still in business ? Or 'sic transit gloria mundi' ?

Dn Jackson24 Sep 2020 3:28 a.m. PST

Campaign Headquarters closed a while ago. It is now Atlantis games, I believe.

ODMS puts on a couple of shows a year on the Peninsula.

jay138, I'm sure you meant Black Powder. Hey, I'm very progressive and support Black Lives Matter, but playing "black power" rules is far too radical even for me. grin

I did mean black powder but i did say I was open to anything. Lol

So the Tidewater area is Portsmouth, Virginia beach, Norfolk, and multiple other cities and counties(cause in va, they are separate). World best comics in Newport News is still there, Atlantis comics, tower of games and there is a spring convention- the Williamsburg Muster (not this year [2021]due to the "ongoing social distancing situation ") I usually see a saga game at it so it might have some following in the area. The old dominion gaming society runs the muster, meets weekly last I checked, and is accessible through the Facebook, also several members frequent here, and do historical gaming in that area. Gaming is so common in the area I heard that hobby town even sells gaming stuff in that area.

Sorry to repeat what others have said, meant no disrespect.

Fear tunnel traffic.

Visit the many museums, fort Monroe, Mariners, Jamestown, fort Eustis, and many others.

Tunnel traffic sux!! Last time I was at the Fort Eustis museum they had one of the Army flying cars, so cool to see up close.

Transportation museum REALLY NEAT. There an atomic cannon at a smaller museum in Newport News, plus the Uss Wisconsin.
