Warhammer 40K Team Tournament Draft Rules

November 17th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates ¦ Print This Post        

The draft rules for the venerable Warhammer 40K Team Tournament are now available.

In the Team Tournament, four players combine forces to compete against opposing teams in a day full of gaming and comradery. While all tournaments are competitive by nature, the Team Tournament encompasses much more than the games played throughout the day. In many cases the day of the tournament is a culmination of months of planning, writing, building, converting and painting. The tournament format challenges and rewards generals, tacticians, hobbyists, fluff-bunnies and casual gamers alike. Additionally, the format enables players to visually realize the immense theme and flavor of the Warhammer 40,000 universe on the tabletop.

Adrift in a Sea of Drafts!

November 06th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates ¦ Print This Post        

Warhammer Fantasy Draft Event Rules
Below you will find several draft event rules for consumption and feedback. Please keep in mind these are still drafts, and while they have been through countless revisions and proofing, they are most likely not the absolute/final versions. Additionally, new army books, FAQs documents and the like in the months leading up to the event could require changes to the following rules. We are currently looking for feedback, most particularly in the realm of clarity.


Warhammer 40K Draft Event Rules
It has been a little over a month since the last round of Warhammer 40K draft rules were circulated and since then we have expanded the scope of our Warhammer 40K offerings and made a few minor changes to the existing events. In particular, pay attention to the Lords of War restrictions in the Warhammer 40K Championship. Additionally, you will also find a new set of draft rules for the Warhammer 40K Exterminatus event, which rounds off the trio of events offered on Thursday.


US SAGA Grand Melee Draft Rules
AdeptiCon, in partnership with Studio Tomahawk and Gripping Beast, will be hosting the inaugural US SAGA Grand Melee! Below you will find the preliminary draft rules for this event as well as a custom scenario. Please keep in mind this is still a draft, and while it has been through countless revisions and proofing, it is most likely not the absolute/final version. Ready your warlord and his band against all challengers in this epic two day event!


Stay tuned for more rules and sample missions!


Warhammer 40K Classic Draft Rules & Championship Primers

October 20th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates ¦ Print This Post        

The experimentation and refinement of the AdeptiCon 2015 Warhammer 40K offerings continues! We are currently in the process of reviewing our ever-evolving tournament formats in order to provide an engaging gaming experience no matter what your preferred style might be! Beginning Thursday, and continuing throughout the weekend, attendees will have the option to participate in 400-point games, 3000-point games, squad-level games, single day events, multi-day events, draft tournaments, single-player tournaments, team tournaments, and more!

Below you will find the draft army construction rules for a new event we are calling the Warhammer 40K Classic. The Warhammer 40K Classic is a single source tournament designed to recreate the feel and flavor of Warhammer 40,000 in days gone by. Players will construct their armies using a single Combined Arms Detachment and pit them against their opponent in scenarios reminiscent of the game’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th editions.

The Warhammer 40K Classic will take place on Thursday alongside the Warhammer 40K Championship and Warhammer 40K Exterminatus. As always, we are looking for constructive feedback concerning this format. If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch!

   AdeptiCon 2015 Warhammer 40K Classic Rules (Draft)

This weekend “GameTown” in New Berlin, WI hosted the first Warhammer 40K Championship primer! The goal of the event was to put the AdeptiCon 2015 Warhammer 40K Tactical Objectives and some sample Maelstrom missions through their paces. The Warhammer 40K Championship and other events will likely utilize a mixture of Maelstrom and Traditional objective missions, but this event focused exclusively on testing the Maelstrom missions. 16 players slugged it out over three rounds and at the end of the day, Tim Schmidt dealt the killing strike. He claimed victory and a free Weekend Badge to AdeptiCon 2015!

Sailing the Sea of Sprues!

October 07th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates,Sponsor News ¦ Print This Post        

Sea of SpruesWhat happens when you more than double your event space and have over 120,000 square feet to fill? Well, for starters, you make a lot more terrain, of course!

A wide variety of terrain efforts are already underway this year for AdeptiCon’s ever-expanding range of games and hobby events. For one terrain project in particular, the good folks at Mantic Games have supplied our crew with a massive amount of Deadzone sprues! Exactly how massive, you ask? How about 1,018 individual sprues!

With the sprues now in hand, the hard work of integrating this great terrain into AdeptiCon’s wide range of games falls to the convention’s Terrain Staff. Staring down a thousand sprues can be a bit intimidating. Fortunately, these skilled veterans are no strangers to building amounts of terrain that others would consider insane.

Of course, the question becomes: what do we build with all these sprues? Our staff is busy working on ideas as we speak. However, if you have any terrain piece concepts or ideas that could be realized using the Mantic Deadzone sprues, please let us know. We are constantly looking for new terrain ideas and, who knows, it may make it onto one of our 300+ terrain tables!

We also have enlisted the help and experience of Mel over at The Terrain Tutor to assist with some terrain concepts for unprecedented project. Mel already has extensive firsthand experience with the Deadzone sprues. You can see some of his work over on his YouTube channel. And, as always, stay tuned for more news and info.

Warhammer 40K Tactical Objectives for Playtesting

While we are still a ways off in finalizing our mission and scoring formats, we have been playtesting an alternative set of Tactical Objectives for the possible use in Maelstrom of War missions at AdeptiCon 2015. The cards presented below are based on the Tactical Objectives presented in the Warhammer 40,000 7th Edition rulebook, but have been modified to better suit the event. In some cases, cards were completely removed and replaced. Additionally, some cards now have a discard mechanic allowing you to immediately draw a replacement card.

Please keep in mind that this deck is still in the draft stages and we are looking for constructive feedback. If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch!

Warhammer 40K Championship Draft Construction Rules

September 10th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates ¦ Print This Post        

Updated: Our intention was for this event to allow unrestricted Allies, yet it was not completely clear in the first version of the draft rules. This has been amended.

With AdeptiCon 2015 planning in full swing, we have turned our attention to ironing out the army construction rules for our major Warhammer 40K events. Below you will find a draft version for the Warhammer 40K Championship. The goal was to keep the rules as simple and succinct as possible while embracing the open nature of Warhammer 40K 7th Edition. That said, you will notice a few restrictions built into the army construction rules, such as: Codex Detachments and Formations are considered unique and may not be duplicated, a small handful of Lords of War have been excepted from the event, Lords of War and Fortifications are limited to a single unit regardless of how many are available to your detachments…

As always, we are looking for constructive feedback concerning this format. If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch! Stay tuned for the Warhammer 40K Team Tournament Draft rules, scoring guidelines for both events and sample missions!

AdeptiCon 2015 Event Submission Now Open!

August 29th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates ¦ Print This Post        

In conjunction with the move to the new venue, development has begun behind the scenes as we prepare to kick AdeptiCon 2015 planning into full gear. One of the more significant changes in the coming year will be regarding how we handle demos, event games and smaller tournaments. In the past, space restrictions forced us to micromanage these events so that they all fit within the hotel and made sense with regards to the schedule. We will no longer have this problem at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center…we have the space…and we need more games! We are looking for a few good game masters to run demos, historical events, specialty games, board games, and anything else that makes sense!

AdeptiCon 2015 Event Submission is now open to the public. If you are interested in running an event, please take the time to look over the form and get it submitted as soon as possible. Some things to keep in mind:

  • Space and schedules are limited. Events that are new to AdeptiCon should be scaled appropriately to justify inclusion in the schedule based on space required and realistic attendance expectations. AdeptiCon will work with you to properly scale your event.
  • AdeptiCon reserves the right to refuse any event submission due to content or schedule/space saturation.
  • All required fields MUST BE fully completed when submitting this form. Incomplete submissions or submissions with placeholders will not be accepted.
  • Spell check your event descriptions!
  • Event Submission will close at 5PM CDT on October 3rd, 2014.
  • You will receive an email after the schedule has been resolved in mid-October with your scheduling details.
  • If you have any questions, please get in touch!

AdeptiCon 2015 Dates & New Venue!

May 27th, 2014 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Hotel News ¦ Print This Post        

AdeptiCon 2015The winds of change are upon us, bringing AdeptiCon back in a BIG way for 2015. AdeptiCon will be held March 19th through the 22nd and will be moving to an all-new venue: the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center! With over 160,000 square feet of combined ballroom and convention space available for our event, the Renaissance looks to be AdeptiCon’s home for the foreseeable future! The AdeptiCon 2015 block is open and you can book your hotel room now!

AdeptiCon has grown consistently over the past twelve years, from the humble 110 person event in 2002, to the amazing 2,200 attendees AdeptiCon hosted in 2014. Over these twelve years, AdeptiCon has been held at four different venues. We have expanded from a handful of events to well over 180 tournaments, event games, and hobby seminars covering all aspects of the miniature war gaming hobby. Despite the continued growth and necessary expansion, we have made every effort to keep consistent focus on one major priority: to present to our attendees the highest quality war gaming event possible. This will remain our priority for 2015 and beyond.

So what can you expect for 2015? First, a lot more space! The kind of space that will allow AdeptiCon to expand its programming – the same kind of events, seminars, and tournaments that have made AdeptiCon one of the world’s preeminent war gaming events.

Looking to game for only a few hours at a time? Tourney events not really your thing? AdeptiCon 2015 is happy to announce that we are expanding our Event Game offerings and dedicating space to these stand-alone events all weekend long. The Event Game Area will be host to dozens of convention-style games that are sure to sport some amazing miniatures and terrain.

While it has, in the past, been difficult to find an open table for pick-up games or the invariable grudge-match, have no fear, for AdeptiCon 2015 will have a dedicated Open Gaming Area. These tables will be available all weekend long.

Hoping to find some space to sit down and do some painting with other like-minded hobbyists? Maybe you need to put those inevitable finishing touches on that last model before the tournament? AdeptiCon 2015 has you covered. A dedicated Hobby Area will be available all weekend for any painting or modelling you might be inclined to do.

AdeptiCon is expanding our extremely popular Sunday evening Board Game night… to run all weekend long! With dedicated space for board game play, a board games library to check out games from, and a wide slate of board game events, run by some of the most popular board game companies in the world, the Board Game Area will be a great addition to AdeptiCon 2015.

Bloggers, vbloggers, ‘casters, and podders get ready, because AdeptiCon 2015 is proud to offer you dedicated private recording space for all your social media needs.

Finally, we are looking at completely revamping our registration process to provide you with a better experience from start to finish. Look for event registration to open in early November.

AdeptiCon 2015 promises to be one of the best gaming and hobby events in the world. Building on a solid twelve-year history of success, AdeptiCon is ready to expand in 2015, providing attendees with even more options and possibilities. Stay tuned for continued updates and more information.
