In our key ratings for the FLGS directory, Hangar 18 Hobbies scores

  • 5 – Wargame Friendliness
  • 3 – Wargame Inventory On-Hand
  • 5 – Wargaming Event Frequency

This is a 1-7 scale, where higher numbers are better; see bottom of article for details

And yes, they do offer online ordering; you can find them at their homepage


What makes this store awesome?

Tons of support for minis wargamers, with a lot of product (including hard-to-find imports) and a lot of paint, terrain, brushes, accessories, etc. Nice play space that you can reserve in a separate dedicated gaming room.

Hangar 18 Hobbies has RC vehicles and models as their main product inventory, and also carry minis wargames, non-wargame minis, some board games, and minis accessories (terrain, paint, etc), in addition to their RC vehicles and models. And on the shelves, it’s new games only (no used games).  While they have a very limited supply of board wargames, they are happy to have board wargamers use their game space to play.

They do not have snacks for sale at the store.


Take a look at the store!
