AdeptiCon

A Call To Arms*!

AdeptiCon, from its very beginning, has sought to put an emphasis on the miniatures gaming hobby as a multifaceted endeavor. Not only was tactical acumen on the tabletop celebrated, but the skill and talent necessary to bring armies to life was highly prized. This focus culminated in the creation of the Rogue Demons**, AdeptiCon’s own painting competition, which quickly became a world-renown contest. Later came the Crystal Brush, a painting competition that, from its inception, attained legendary status. But now, in 2020, we enter a new era…

The storied Golden Demon returns to the U.S. this year at AdeptiCon. The Demons remain the most celebrated miniatures painting competition globally, with a history unrivaled and boasting participation by the greatest names in the hobby.

This year also sees an unparalleled collection of vendor and company sponsored miniatures painting competitions ever to be assembled in one time and place. These contests will challenge every artist and hobbyist and will provide every attendee with a front-row view of the pinnacle of talent that abounds in the hobby today. Below is a list of the painting/hobby contests being held at AdeptiCon with links to each individual set of rules and guidelines.

*Arms meaning brushes.

I’d love to see a major independent painting competition at Adepticon like the Capital Palette at Nova 🥳

What are the chances that someone could place in all of these? James Wappel?

Chris FitzPatrickFelicity FitzPatrick we made it!

Adepticon was my first experience in competitive painting. Always brings amazing talent from around the world. It’s a great community!!

Super sweet choice of a picture to accompany this post! 😀

Dat standard! 👌

Do we know if the Kill Team tournament missions and scoring system are going to be published? The KT booklet does not have a single mission listed. Hard to prep for a tournament when you have no idea what the scoring system will be for it.

We had planned on attending, too bad every event we were interested sold out in the first hour they were open 🤷 we'll go to GenCon instead

Crap!! That doesn’t give me a lot of time to paint. I need to hustle!!

Was the drawing for the VIP badge done already?

AdeptiCon, are we going to be able to use AttendeeHub again this year?

So excited!

Yay!!! Can't wait! 😊
