AdeptiCon

Big news from our friends at Privateer Press!
Painters: We will be hosting a Formula P3 Grandmaster painting competition at Adepticon 2020. While we haven't settled on all of the details, we felt it was important to get the information out as soon as possible to allow people as much time to prepare as possible. www.facebook.com/OfficialPrivateerPress/photos/a.218535387049/10156560454312050/?type=3&theaterPainters: We will be hosting a Formula P3 Grandmaster painting competition at Adepticon 2020.

Warhammer 40,000 Event Expansion for AdeptiCon 2020

Much like the galaxy itself, our 2020 Warhammer 40,000 events are expanding! This year will see 300 spots open for the 40K Championship, along with an epic 150 teams (a staggering 600 players) for the Team Tournament. The Championship will maintain a top 16 cut on Friday. So, if you haven’t begun preparations and planning already, what are you waiting for? The galaxy may be getting bigger, but it’s still burning…

We have maintained the size of our GW events for years, adding massive amounts of space for all sorts of other game systems in other hall spaces. We are on track to be hosting over 700 events and seminars. Offering what is the most diverse schedule of miniature war gaming to be found anywhere. But for clarity, both the 40k champs and TT event take place in 1/3 of the large convention center space. That 1/3 rd of the hall has been dedicated to 40k events for as long as we have been taking up the entirety of the venue. So those additional tables for our largest events are coming from changing the mix of other 40k events in that same hall. Hope that clears thing up.

At the expense of the Heresy events. That have much better tables, better painted armies and the best community. Great job, Adepticon.

Does this mean we will only be doing Bits Trading one night as well?

So next year the GW presence will increase 150% will other game presences decrease? Tell me this wont be occurring and that other TT games will have a fighting chance for a presence. Otherwise what's the point of going if you dont like GW?

Bring back zone mortalis!

I think it's interesting that there's a zero-sum assumption here, that if 40K gets more players, it automatically means some other game is losing player space, instead of organizers exploring any number of options to expand space in ways that don't infringe on participant numbers for other systems or events. Just an observation here, not a criticism of anyone's opinion.

And shrinking Horus Heresy space and events 🙁

No 40k gentle gt this year?

Sellouts. When are you changing the name to GWcon?

AdeptiCon 2020: So, It Begins…

The time is once again upon us to take those first steps on the road to AdeptiCon! This year’s convention is already on track to be our most epic celebration yet of the miniatures gaming hobby, with dozens of new tournaments, event games, hobby seminars and workshops, and painting competitions. It is no mere exaggeration to say that AdeptiCon 2020 will have something for everyone. So, without any further ado, we wanted to share some important upcoming dates:

Registration Opens: Sunday, December 8th, 2019 at 1PM CT

Registration Closes: Friday, February 28th, 2020 at 12PM CT

Last Day for Cash Refunds: Friday, January 10th, 2020

Last Day for Ticket Credit Refunds: Friday, March 6th, 2020

Badges, merchandise, and event tickets for open events can be purchased onsite starting Thursday, March 25th at 7:00 am.

We are now just about five months out. Certainly, it is time to start planning those new armies, warbands, fleets, gangs, heroes, and competition entries. So, get to it and we’ll see you in March!

So whens the schedule coming??

Any ETA on the event schedule preview? It's a really handy tool for pre-planning projects and schedules.

December??? That is good. I can allocate a bit more money for classes and hopefully a VIG bag!

Love the logo for this year!

And my Tradition of registration of my next convention while I’m at a convention continues. I’m really amused because we chose to do PAX Unplugged only on Sunday this year and that happens to be registration day. Oh well.

Can wait! Adepticon is my one big con every year!

Woohoo!

I CAN’T WAIT!!!

Will VIG still be a random draw again this year? (I'm assuming that will remain unchanged from last year)

I’d like to enquire about exhibiting my builds, but can’t seem to find any links regards that? Any help would be appreciated.

I’m in! Let’s make it happen this year

Super pumped... as per usual. 💯🥳

Crap why is registration so late. December is the worst month for expenses and now I have to pay for all my events on top of that.

I am almost ready for Adepticon👍

Awesome, waiting to see the Warhammer Underworlds events, and curious if there will be a team event

Is the V.I.G. still going to be a raffle or is there a new system in place?

Now that's my idea of March madness!

New to this event and want to confirm... 1) sometime in November (hopefully 8-11) the scheduals and events will go up online. 2) registration for tournaments (i.e. 40k and others), and other events opens at 1pm dec 11. Just wanted a recap so me and my crew don't miss anything!!

so PUMPED!!! cant wait to get back.

Legion high command invitational is on this event?

Everyone ready for the registration log jam!?

I'll be there!

Tim Schmidt. I have to go this year! Don’t let me forget!!

Will event hosts find out about their events being accepted before the December date?

AdeptiCon

Warhammer Age of Sigmar Team Tournament AdeptiCon 2020

In the Mortal Realms, the only thing better than having a good sword in your hand is having a loyal ally at your side. And the more allies one has, the better! Which brings us to this: we are proud to announce the new format for the AdeptiCon 2020 Age of Sigmar Team event. Following the successful design of the Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament, we are moving to a 4-person team format. With over 300 participants in last year’s AoS Team event, we are excited to see the tournament make this evolution. More specific event details will follow, but the basic preliminary rules are below. These may be subject to some minor change, but we wanted to get this information out so your planning can begin. Remember, choose your allies wisely for your destiny is in their hands!

Each player will bring a 1000 point army following the Vanguard composition.

Armies on each team can be from different Grand Alliances (Chaos, Death, Destruction, Order).

Armies on each team can duplicate Allegiance Abilities, but keep separate pools where applicable for allegiance abilities (Blood Tithe, Depravity, etc).

If armies can choose a specific Enclave, Stormhost, Grand Court, etc, you cannot duplicate them between team members (i.e. you cannot have two or more players on the same team playing Gristlegore etc). If armies must choose one (such as Slaaneshi Hosts), then you can duplicate to a max of 2.

Armies on each team must be from the same Mortal Realm.

Armies cannot duplicate Warscrolls between team members unless they are true Battleline (i.e., not Battleline If). An individual player's army can take duplicate Warscrolls. For example, Player A on a team can take multiple Ironjawz Warchanters, but Players B,C,&D cannot take any Ironjawz Warchanters.

Armies cannot duplicate Command Traits & Artefacts between team mates.

Follow all basic rules for Coalition of Death.

"Armies on each team must be from the same Mortal Realm." Does this mean if someone picks Ghur EVERYONES Ghur? Just making sure.

Thanks for getting this up! We are very much looking forward to it 🙂

Any idea if you will still be running a 2 man team tournament as well? Or will this replace that?

Waaaait so like 4 players on each team lol? Woa

Who needs a partner?

Any idea of when this will be and whether it is a 1 day or 2 day event?

Damon Drescher - you need three more grot players!

Kyle McCormick, did you catch this while you were on vacation?

AdeptiCon 2020 and the Return of the U.S. Golden Demons

The Golden Demon, Games Workshop’s miniatures painting competition, is one of the most prestigious and storied contests in the history of the hobby. And there was a time, not long ago, when this legendary competition had U.S. events, mythic displays of hobby skill and painting talent. But then, alas, a time of darkness befell the New World and in 2014 the Golden Demon had left our shores and were lost…

But that which was unto us lost has been found. Like an exiled king of yore, the Golden Demon has returned to the U.S. and it is with great pride that AdeptiCon 2020 will play host to this fabled event. The partnership between Games Workshop and AdeptiCon will allow this prestigious competition to more than revive its former glory here in the states. The U.S. Golden Demon will undoubtedly bring together an historic collection of painters and hobbyists and forge a new legacy for this grand event.

But there is no time to waste! The call of the Demons grows in strength (can you not hear it?) and its siren song beckons you to start those projects now! Below is a list of the official 2020 categories and a link to the Warhammer Community site for more information. We proudly welcome back the Golden Demons and count it as one of the many reasons to attend AdeptiCon 2020.

Will be attending! 🙂 My first GD was the German GD in Cologne in 2004... This will be my first US GD! Super stoked! Thank you for bringing them back, GW! Time to celebrate the new Season in style! 😉

Absolutely amazing the degree of salt and whining. Don’t like GW models? There will be other comps and more to come, or push with companies you like to do so. Crystal Brush was far from perfect, having one large event and other smaller comps will allow more variety in paint level, style, and models. This is the first step to something better. Stop bitching about the top heavy, uninviting event going away because of size and business changes, and start looking forward to better things. Acting shocked that a GW sponsored event requires GW models and acting like CB was perfect in all ways is just... well it’s sad.

We demand Duel and Diorama categories to be separate again! 🙁

Sweet! What if I have a duel AND a diorama in mind? Can I only enter one since it’s the same category?

Ooooooooh, I can’t wait!

I’m super stoked at how easy it’s going be to walk away with childhood dream Golden Demon awards since so few “prestigious” painters will be entering! Maybe even a Slayer Sword is in the cards for me this year! 🤣 With so few attending the con as well due to GW’s influence it should mean hotel rooms for Adepticon won’t sell out in under 30 seconds as well! 🤣

As much as I like the golden demon competition I hate to see it at an event like adepticon because it excludes most of the people that used to enter the crystal brush.

So 8 out of the 12 categories are explicitly GW models only. I'm missing the Crystal Brush already.

Sad to see the Crystal Brush leaving to be replaced with another GW marketing scheme. Some of us enjoy spending the time painting all kinds of interesting models, now we are forced into GW Only Models if we choose to attend for the painting contest. Thanks for making my choice to attend NOVA or GenCon over AdeptiCon that much easier. Long Live Crystal Brush!

It is very disappointing to see Adepticon loss Crystal Brush. It was nice to see a variety of categories to be able to place models that did not pigeon hole you to one companies models. Admittedly crystal brush did have one category every year that was only CMoN models, but that was only one. It seems Golden Deamon is flipping that so it is multiple GW only categories, and one open to everything. Well I am happy to hear Golden Deamon is back in the US, it sounds like we will see much less interesting models, and variety. Just going to be disappointed with the paint competition this year I guess. If only Adepticon could have worked a way to host both. That would have been a showing at that point.

Very excited to participate, though it seems you don’t have a 30k category. Will the Horus Heresy Models be welcome in this competition?

The loss of the Crystal Brush really saddens me and Golden Demon will never hold a candle to the entries we saw in the CB

Not competing, but can't wait to see the entries!

I've waited a long time for this.

Goddamn... The crystal brush wasn't forced out people, how you gonna give shit to a competition that is coming in due to CMON giving up??

... does no one realize the NAME of the convention is ADEPTicon. As in, Adeptus Astartes.

Does anyone know the age cutoff for Young Blood.

Can one entry be in different categories?

Rather aee the Crystal Brush so all the miniatures manufacturers can be represented instead of a single entity. Side note this means that 100% of the models need to be GW parts. How does GW plan to enforce this?

Such excite

Small Scale is Titanicus and Aeronautica, right?

All the saltiness is

Hmmm No 30k specific categories

Mikael Astrom here are the categories

Ro Bailey we need to submit something this year!

AdeptiCon

The Coming Storm…

As the summer winds down and the days grow shorter, thoughts once again turn to the inevitable question: what new project am I starting for AdeptiCon? Well, 2019 has been a banner year for tabletop miniatures gaming and, as a hobbyist, your choices for 2020 will be unparalleled in the annals of wargaming history.

From Games Workshop unleashing Warcry! upon the Mortal Realms to Fantasy Flight Games taking the high ground with their Clone Wars additions to Star Wars: Legion, the hobby is flush with amazing games and fantastic new models. Whether you choose to command a horde of goblins in Tomahawk Studio’s new SAGA: Age of Magic or prefer the role of centurion leading a cohort of legionaries north of Hadrian’s Wall in Warlord Game’s new SPQR or even - are you ready for this? - taking your team of legendary heroes into a battle against Doc Ock and the nefarious Red Skull in Atomic Mass Games’ Marvel: Crisis Protocol, your gaming choices are myriad and the quality unheard of.

And you better believe you can expect to see all these new offerings and more at AdeptiCon 2020! From matched and narrative play, tournaments and one-off convention games, AdeptiCon 2020 looks to be unrivaled in its offering of different game systems and events. So start your annual machinations now. Don’t wait for the chill winds of winter to start building that new warband, army, gang, fleet, maniple, team, or whatever you’re thinking of bringing to the world class celebration that is sure to be AdeptiCon 2020!

Marvel: Crisis Protocol is my most anticipated with more Battletech taking a very close second.

Give me all the Marvel Crisis Protocol, please

Editor's Note- I would literally like to do all of these things.

Can't wait!

I just want to play Starship Troopers
