Glad I already added that to my ticket!

I did not see pins in the shopping cart. Did I miss them? Does this replace them?

Super glad I ordered!

Very nice design work

Outstanding. These are incredible

Any chance they’ll be trying to offload the coins from 2020? I would get one.

Man, am I glad I ordered one.

Already ordered mine!

Glad I ordered 1!

WOW! These look amazing!

Fairness? FAIRNESS? That coin DOES NOT represent fairness. That, . . . . . is the coin of a PIRATE!!!

So cool! how many did go into production?

Atomic Mass Games and AdeptiCon 2022

Per AMG’s recent announcement:

"Adepticon is the premiere wargaming convention and we, at Atomic Mass Games, are excited to see it return in March.

We will not be attending as a studio, but we are happy to deliver a huge range of events during the show, for everyone to enjoy our games and connect with each other. "

While we will certainly miss having the studio team here in person, we want to let everyone know that this won’t be affecting the slate of Atomic Mass Games events planned for AdeptiCon 2022. The one exception will, unfortunately, be 'The Worthy' painting competition, which has been postponed until AdeptiCon 2023. So painters have a little extra time to get those projects finished.

We’ll have additional news on prize support for AMG events over the next few weeks.

Once again, we look forward to seeing the studio back in 2023, along with 'The Worthy', but rest assured that the events planned remain in place and we look forward to seeing them in March!

Super easy! Well done!

And done! 40K friendly here I come! #teampink4life

Your system is much improved. Love the auto waitlist instead of starting over and losing my other events. This year my team was able to get into everything except 1 person in 1 event instead of half of us in 1 event and the other half in another and just being all over the place. Awesome. Excited to attend

Super easy to register, myself and my other half should have been there in 2020 so we are really looking forward to coming over from the UK for our first Adepticon ! 😁

Much better, easier system than in years past.

Sorry everyone, I registered for everything and all of the slots. I won the registration and all of the gaming is mine now. See ya all next year. 😉

May the odds be ever in your favor...

Wife and I got I to the 40k team tournament and Titan battle Saturday night. AdeptiCon has been our big yearly event for a few years, and now is our anniversary vacation! Those who slay together, stay together!

I just registered my husband and our 2 teenage boys. They are beyond pumped!!! Pretty easy to register. Was nervous about registering for classes. The are waitlisted on a few....maybe they will open up.

Go, go, go!

This will be three years of trying and will be my official first time going to AdeptiCon, registration complete. So looking forward to it. Middle-Earth Grand Tournament and 40K Friendly will be fun.

MUCH easier to register this year!

Amazed how quickly some of my top choices filled up. Within seconds! QUESTION...if we get into a workshop from the waitlist, will we be refunded the fees for the sessions we'll have to drop to get into the new workshop?

Great job guys! Easy sign up! Can't wait!

Is there a picture of the Dice set anywhere?

And I'm registered. I've got 6 different game systems to prepare for including a new 40k army I just decided to commit to. Sure I could use one of the 3 other armies I have but what's the fun in that.

Registered! Hoping to get a VIG upgrade this time. I always seem to miss it.

And I’m in. Going to be good to get back

so if I want to add another event as we get closer I use my Confirmation number and just modify registration correct. That will not affect the swag bag status.

SO has his badge but I am going to get a Shopper's badge this year.

Pretty much all the painting classes sold out already.

Are we going to get registration info for the cvent Event Planner on the Adepticon app?

I apologize if this is answered elsewhere, but if we forgot to fill out the credit/refund survey from 2020, are those funds inaccessible for this years Adepticon?

Alright got registered and ready for my first adepticon! I’ll be getting stomped in kill team!

To bad there is much narrative or low key AoS events. Oh well, maybe next year. Will our credits carry over if we don't use them this year?

Team Yankee: Market Garden '84

August 14, 1984, near Nijmegen – Two weeks after the Warsaw Pact invasion began, NATO forces have been pushed back across the North German Plain and into The Netherlands. The Soviet 2nd Guards Tank Army and 20th Guards Army have driven back the Bundeswehr's 3rd Panzer and 6th Panzergrenadier Divisions as well as the Dutch 1st and 5th Mechanized Divisions, seizing Hamburg before moving into Holland.

NATO reinforcements have been entering the theater and the frontline has stabilized in Holland from Hilversum to Arnhem to the Dutch-German border. To the East, an American Corps is beginning its attack from Osnabruck in an effort to cut off the two Soviet armies. To assist with this offensive, a hodgepodge of units from several NATO nations will be attacking out of the Nijmegen area in an attempt to pin Soviet units and prevent them from reacting to the American push.

This will be a massive Team Yankee game. Due to the size of this event we are asking that players have a good grasp of the Team Yankee rules. With a planned 20+ players involved, there simply won't be time for teaching the rules without the player having some familiarity.

I can bring the soviet central army group in 6mm if you like (I know - wrong scale). --- It looks and sounds like a great scenario.

Looks like one of the sides is getting support in the form of Astartes Dreadnoughts lol.

im betting the side with the astartes will win

Victory at Sea: War Plan Orange

On December 12, 1937, aircraft of the Empire of Japan bombed and strafed the USS Panay and three Standard Oil tanker ships that were in the process of rescuing U.S. and Chinese civilians fleeing Nanking during the Japanese invasion. Three Americans were killed and dozens wounded. In the same way that "Remember the Maine!" became the rallying cry that propelled America into the Spanish-American War, "Remember the Panay!" was shouted across the country as diplomacy between the U.S. and Japan broke down in the months following the incident. The United States declared war against the Empire of Japan on March 24, 1938, and the U.S. Navy's plan for dealing with that nation, War Plan Orange, was implemented....

This "What if" scenario will use Warlord's Victory at Sea rules to fight out the "decisive battle" between the opposing surface fleets envisioned in American planning after World War I.

The Road To Adepticon 2022 - “Crisis!”
by Don Ayres

So, friends, it is early July. Preparations for the four games we plan to run at Adepticon are coming along pretty well. The ships for our WWII naval game are pretty much done except for being put onto bases. The massive Team Yankee armies are probably 70% painted. Mike and I have started painting up stands for our Gettysburg game, and we are starting to buy up the models we need for our Flames of War Operation Market-Garden game. Things were just swell. If we had any brains this would have been a red flag for us. It was not.

In mid-July we decided to take a trip to Gettysburg to get a close look at the terrain as we were planning on building a custom battlefield for our game. I had just picked up a 3D printer and thought it might be possible to print off some of the buildings if I got some photos of them to help me with the designs. It was a great trip. Mike and I took along Dustin and Max, who had never been to the battlefield, so we had a lot of fun talking over the history with them. We ended up getting a lot of photos of the part of the battlefield we want to model so our mission was a success.

In early August some of our gaming group got together at Mike's house to playtest our WWII naval game and the Gettysburg game with some of the changes to the Black Powder rules we were considering. All in all it went pretty well. It was our first time giving the new Victory at Sea rules a try and we were pretty happy with them. When we got done with that game we decided the rules were great, all we were going to need to do was fine tune the details on our scenario to make sure it would be a good experience for our players. The Gettysburg games (we played a few turns and then restarted a second game after making some adjustments) went pretty much as we expected. They solved some issues for us, but also created more questions that we were going to have to address before our next round of playtesting.

Around August 12th the bottom fell out on us. The decision was made to move historical gaming and some other events over to a new venue at the Hyatt Regency, and Mike found out the he was going to be in charge of running the new venue. Mike, being dumber than I had previously thought, asked me to assist him and I, being dumber than Mike, agreed. This was going to change things in a big way, because there is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes throughout the year in order to put on Adepticon each Spring. Our plans were going to have to change.

Mike and I sat down to discuss those plans and whether or not we would be able to do all of the work required for the new venue and also get things finished for our four games. Sadly, we came to the conclusion that we could not and at least one, possibly two, of our games would have to be canceled. We were dead set on doing the big Team Yankee and naval battle, as we had planned those for the convention canceled when Covid first hit. Those two games would also be the easiest for us to finish preparing. That left the Flames of War Market-Garden game and the Gettysburg game. It was very difficult, but we decided the Gettysburg game would have to wait another year and stopped all work on it.

The first weekend in October we drove over to Schaumburg to have a look at the Hyatt Regency. I wrote a Facebook post on that trip and our thoughts on the new venue right after we got back so if you haven't read that go and have a look. We are very excited about the potential for the historical games and the other events being put on over there at the Hyatt, really looking forward to it.

Next time on “The Road to Adepticon 2022”: “What is WRONG with us?!?!?”
