HMGS Legion of Honor and the Scruby Award

In 1989, Historical Miniature Gaming Society (HMGS) members created the Legion of Honor, an organization that recognized contributing individuals to the hobby of historical miniature wargaming. Since that time, the Legion of Honor has added members in an ad-hoc fashion until 1995, where a large batch were inducted. Since then, it has inducted two members per year. Here’s the list of Legion of Honor members to date:
