Adepticon Day 4

Team tournament day two....all pressure is off and the fun just keeps coming!

Round 4 saw the ravenguard square off against the dark angels first and second companies.  Nick and I faced down the first company with Azreal AND Ezekiel! That and somewhere north of 30 terminators!

We deployed in a corner building, and I had my techmarine fortify it. The scouts acted like a screen from the small incoming fire. For some reason the Dark Angels dropped in midfield and walked across the board. Nick and I let them come, and then deployed all of Nicks Elysians into the objectives on the opposite side of the board while my marines held onto the original building. In the end we pulled a primary win with linebreaker for the guard in their deployment zone. One of these guys is a painter for GW so you can imagine how beutiful the army was.

Allan and Nick faced off against the Second company and pulled a draw against what looked like more than 60 bikes!!

As tired as I was I didnt think to get any pics (sorry guys, awesome armies!!!!).

Round 5 put us against sisters and home-brew marines. While we won this round we learned just how SICK twin hand flamers on seraphim can be....ouch 47 wounds on a 10 man tactical. Nice guys and good game with no pressure what so ever!

Allan and Nick took a draw against the eldar/marine combo on the other table.

The awards were next, and we waited anxiously for the raffle winners to be announced. None of uf won anything but a good time, thing is we don't care, the good time was what we went for.

After the awards we went back to Portillo's for dinner (garbage salad, YUM!), and then off to the Fantasy Flight Games after con mixer. Allan did an excellent impersonation of a dying colonial marine trying to fit in a gym locker (if you know Allan you know how funny this is) to win a free copy of Sedition wars. We got a good two hours of Relic in as well. Great time and new friends made.

Is it bad that we spent the entire trip home hammering out our lists and ideas for next year?

Adepticon day 3 Team tournament

We are light on pictures due having an AWESOME time! Round one was versus Da Boyz from New York.

LOSE...but to a crazy nice team of guys and a really nice Tau army.

Round two against "I heart crabs", or as we call them the Swedes. Seriously cool guys from, wait for it.....Sweden.  they were offering shots and beer, having a rockin time and enjoying the day like no-one else.They were playing Necron Air mixed with IG blob squads defending the ground. They had some crazy blue and green flyers, but seriously clean and good looking paint. Solid strategy and a mistake or two were the only reason Allan and I could crack them. Allan and I drew and so did Nick and Wolf.

The third game was against "2 inch Charge" and their chaos marines/traitor guard combo. 4 drakes and a blight drone, plus a flying prince, my half tabled them, and the other team drew.

Day one wrap up

Exciting first day at Adepticon. Allan played in a Warhammer Fantasy 1000 point tournament. The went 50/50 and had a blast. I played in a Necromunda tournament and came in third overall. I did manage a few pics of some armies.

Adepticon Day 1

Adepticon championships are on and it looks like almost 1 in 5 armies is "cron-air". The remaining 4 are either multi drake chaos with noise marines or Imperial Guard airforce. I didnt want to interrupt any games for pics, so Ill post that up later.

In the meantime we ran into the powered play and took a close look at their kits. I have to say, I am impressed.

The vendor hall opens tomorrow, but for tonight we have Warhammer fantasy 1k point tournaments, weathering seminars and Necromuda tournaments. Let the geeking begin!

Adepticon Day 0

We made it! Surprisingly little traffic in Chicago proper, so despite a little rain we made it much faster than anticipated. We arrived at 6:50 and promptly got in line behind about 300 other nuts to register and get our swag. (which was quite generous)

This is the night before registration "officially" begins....all for the swag bag....

Today the events start in earnest for us.  I'm strting at 4 with necromunda and finishing at midnight in a weathering technique seminar....LONG DAY ahead. More updates as I get the chance.
