Rogue Leader to Echo Base: Hoth Playmats at AdeptiCon!

March 10th, 2017 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Event Updates ¦ Print This Post        

Hoth OpenThere’s not enough life on these exclusive Hoth playmats to fill a space cruiser! But you may be skilled (or lucky enough) to get one anyways. One question has remained, how would the exclusive Hoth Open mats be distributed? These cool mats will be awarded at the Hoth Open System Series X-Wing Tournament as follows:

First, at each round of the event, 10 player names will be drawn randomly and these lucky nerf-herders will take home one of the coolest terrain mats in the system. 70 will be awarded on Day 1A, 70 on Day 1B, and 20 on Day 2.

Secondly, each talented pilot who wins all seven rounds on their Day 1 will be awarded a playmat.

Additional playmats will be awarded throughout the event at the discretion of the organizers. These may be handed out for innovative squadron creation, custom painted ships, or sportsmanship above and beyond the typical congeniality of the tournament.

A player can receive one playmat maximum. So aim for that power generator and you just may find yourself escaping the system with a new playmat!

VIG Perk: Exclusive AdeptiCon Frostgrave Mini-Campaign

March 04th, 2017 | Category: AdeptiCon News,Swag Bag Contents ¦ Print This Post        

The Catacombs of the EvrenbrightOsprey Publishing returns to AdeptiCon and are bringing with them an exclusive Frostgrave mini-campaign – The Catacombs of the Evrenbright! The mini-campaign for Osprey’s Frostgrave: Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City includes three brand-new scenarios written by Joseph A. McCullough. Printed on a folded, over-sized, glossy card, featuring the artwork of Dmitry Burmak, it is available exclusively to AdeptiCon VIGs and those playing in the Frostgrave events at the show. This campaign will never again be available in a print edition!

In the later days of Felstad, when the city was riven by political unrest and the machinations of rival cabals, an order of wizards called the Evrenbright established their headquarters in a vast tower in the west of the city. The Tower of Evrenbright was a beautiful white structure, covered with many offshoots and side towers, and hundreds of needle sharp spires reaching towards the sky. According to rumour, however, most of the important experiments preformed by the order took place below ground, in secret catacombs. There was a joke that wizards would work away their whole lives in these tunnels and, when they died, a hole would be made in the wall, in which their body could rest to watch over the next wizard to oversee their work.

Since the rediscovery of Frostgrave, the site of the great Tower of Evrenbright has been the source of rumour and debate amongst the wizards now infesting the ruins. Yesterday, however, a huge explosion was heard from the west of the city and, for several hours, green gas poured from dozens of cracks and holes in the ground. Adventurers rushed to the scene, discovering passages leading down into an ancient tunnel complex… the secret catacombs of the Evrenbright!

AdeptiCon is pleased to have the support of Dust USA for the AdpetiCon 2017 Army Charity Raffle. Just because the web cart is now officially closed, doesn’t mean you’re out of luck! You can still grab your raffle tickets at the Registration Desk during the AdeptiCon weekend.

Dust USA is putting up for grabs Red Ace and her helicopter Red Star. They are already assembled and primed and can be played right out of the box! Red Ace is a legendary hero of the SSU bloc in Paolo Parente’s DUST 1947. It was only normal that she would make anything she could to help for the Charity Raffle during AdeptiCon. Eva flies a unique helicopter modified according to her specifications, the Red Star. She can skillfully handle any aircraft for the block but prefers her helicopter above all to raid fortified positions of the enemy, leading her Squadron of SSU Choppers.
