We are very proud to announce the inclusion of Kat Lidyanova in this year’s swag bag. Sculpted by the talented Victoria Lamb, a metal version of this awesome character will be found in every bag. Both metal and resin versions will be available at the Victoria Miniatures booth for anyone looking for additional models.
“Kat Lidyanova, 599th Strike Wing, is the most highly decorated combat pilot in the Svargan Aerospace Guard and a heroine of the Empire!
At Gliese 317c, she led the strike that shattered the Tannenburgers’ high command, while at Eridani Prime she single-handedly crippled the invaders’ orbital base and saved ten thousand trapped Svargan Shock Soldats.
It was during the uprisings on Omicron Borealis that Lidyanova became embroiled in the periodic revolution and counter-revolution that regularly sweeps through the Svargan Empire, but she weathered the purges thanks to being so beloved of the masses.
At a stroke, the heroine of the Empire became the heroine of the Revolution, a feat unmatched by any before or since. Lidyanova’s colleagues later noted that she barely acknowledged the change of affairs, simply climbing back into the cockpit of her beloved Archangel F11k aerospace interceptor to undertake the next, critical mission." ...

Could you provide some clarity on whether teams such as the Elucidian Starstriders, Gellarpox Infected, Kroot, and Servants of the Abyss are allowed and if they are if they are allowed to use their tactics from Rogue Trader, White Dwarf or their PDF respectively?
(Of the four, only the Servants are "beta rules" and according to the packet you wouldn't be able to use the faction tactics for any of these because they aren't in the Core Rulebook.)

Privateer Press will be weighing down your SWAG bags for AdeptiCon 2019!
Included in your SWAG this year is; Level 7 [Invasion] is a semi-cooperative board game of strategic global defense for 3-5 players. As the planet is battered by a relentless alien assault, players will control Earth’s desperate national coalitions in an effort to turn back the invasion. But soldiers are not enough. Players must manage resources carefully to combat the threats of hysteria, famine, and population loss. Endure long enough and you might buy time for Dr. Cronos to develop the advanced weaponry required to defeat the invading Hydra. The survival of the human race depends on your next move!

Better dump all that overstock before the bankruptcy starts!!!
I'm not scoffing at this addition as it DOES look fun, but this is five years old and is almost 50% off MSRP on Amazon right now. VIG bags should hold new/OOP/not-yet-released/exclusive type of stuff.
Looking forward to trying it but I hope the VIG bags will gain a lot more.
Glad I skipped the swag bag.
This is cheaper then disposal....
I'm all for free stuff, and I'll give any game a try, but this is a bit more of game necromancy that I become used to to from the swag bag. Invasion is a 2014 game . Unless this is a new version?
They shovel it from a dumpster right into your bag
