Introducing the Ancient Order of AdeptiCon’s Vaunted Archivist
The hallowed halls of the Ancient Order are preternaturally quiet, yet the very perceptive will immediately recognize the shadowy presence of the Order’s chief curator. Adept-Archivist Epsilon 16309++ Tertiary is the Grand Tabulator and Keeper of the Honoured Rolls. His primary function, as it has been for a thousand years, is to maintain the Order’s archives, managing the lists of AdeptiCon’s most loyal and trusted attendees.
Sculpted by the talented Heriberto Valle based on an original design by the iconic Tim Toolen with example painted here by the illustrious Jeff Jenkins, Adept-Archivist Epsilon Tertiary is not available to purchase but is instead a gift to members of the Ancient Order of AdeptiCon who attend AdeptiCon 2022. And not only will Ancient Order attendees receive this amazing model (supplied unpainted), but also an exclusive pin and custom badge. It is part of our way of thanking our loyal attendees who have helped assure the convention’s continued success.
More generally, we are in the process of finalizing more news and you should see some updates soon, particularly information about registration and hotel blocks. So stay tuned and, as always, we appreciate your patience as we work to bring AdeptiCon back in 2022. ... See MoreSee Less
I feel like if we’re going to be an ancient order, we’re going to need matching fezzes.
Awesome work Jeff Jenkins!
We all look forward to coming back to our favourite event of the year. I hope you consider making vaccinations mandatory in the best interest of keeping everyone safe. Good luck with the planning!
I can't be the only one that checks every day for posts about hotel registration can I?
Hoping to get a VIG as I had one when Adepticon was cancelled
So ready for an Adepticon it hurts!
Missing Adepticon for the last two years hurt my soul. It was the trip I looked forward to every year. I’m looking forward to Adepticon 2022 so much that the 8 hour drive from Buffalo, NY will just fly by
This is Amazing !!! Chibi Adepticon model makes my heart smile!
Sooo cute, little baby adeptus
Itching to do some traveling but still stuck with the pandemic blues? Why not join Teras from Geek Nation Tours on his new geek travel show - Tales from the Outer Rim. TftOR is a Geek based travel show that visits awesome geeky locations like conventions, filming locations, and geeky historical spots. While there, they hang out with friends and talk about all the geeky things that they love – from delving the dark places via Dungeons & Dragon, to talking about the SETI search for alien life, from what they are playing on the tabletop, to how history has turned into pop culture. So, if you are longing to do some armchair traveling hop aboard and join the adventure.
In their first full episode they voyage to the mecca of all Dungeons & Dragons fans… Lake Geneva WI. Here they talk about their thoughts on D&D and visit with Ernie Gygax, Jeff Leason and James Ward… If you enjoy the show please consider subscribing and ringing that notification bell. Comments are also welcome…

I currently live just minutes from Lake Geneva. As a suggestion, maybe include Mark Clover as part of this. He does an amazing job of keeping DnD alive at Lake Geneva Games. He has always made sure Ernie has a place at the head of the campaign table. Very charming, funny, and knowledgeable campaigner himself.
We would so enjoy seeing you again

Golden Demon Returns to the US at AdeptiCon 2022
It is with immense pride that we can officially announce the return of the Golden Demon painting competition to AdeptiCon. The world's most prestigious hobby contest returns, like a phoenix, to North America's most prestigious hobby event. From Games Workshop...
"Golden Demon Returns to the USA
We're delighted to announce that Golden Demon will be returning to the USA at Adepticon 2022. The triumphant return, first planned for 2020, will see the world's premier Warhammer painting competition held in America again, for the first time in a decade.
Golden Demon is a spectacular celebration of painting, miniatures and the Warhammer hobby. Even for those not competing, it's a chance to see the best Warhammer miniatures in the world up close. And for those who do compete - there is no higher honour for a Warhammer painter, than a Golden Demon statue, save perhaps the coveted Slayer Sword itself.
We'll have more news and details for you soon. For now - start thinking about what you want to paint! We can't wait to see what you come up with."
So to all the painters and hobbyists out there, as the great bards of Whitesnake advised, "an' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time. Here I go again!" What are you waiting for?! ... See MoreSee Less

20 YEARS AND COUNTING!
After two years off, AdeptiCon will return in 2022!
AdeptiCon has grown consistently over the past seventeen years, from the humble 110 person event in 2003, to the amazing 6,500 attendees AdeptiCon hosted in 2019. Over these seventeen years, AdeptiCon has been held at five different venues. We have expanded from a handful of events to well over 650 tournaments, event games, and hobby seminars covering all aspects of the miniature war gaming hobby. Despite the continued growth and necessary expansion, we have made every effort to keep consistent focus on one major priority: to present to our attendees the highest quality wargaming event possible.

The 40K Radio gang is joined by the notorious Greg Sparks of AdeptiCon fame. They talk about the shared love of the hobby, the game, their current projects, but most importantly, they discuss what AdeptiCon and similar events mean to them. Greg drops a few hints of what to expect at AdeptiCon 2022 while JF lays out his proposal for the 40K event to end all 40K events (according to JF). Sit back and wax nostalgic with 40K Radio as they dream about the event that wasn’t but should have been and their promise that 2022 will make up for all the lost time.

TinkerHouse Games remembers.
One day, hopefully soon, we’ll again be able to gather around a table to roll some dice. And when that day comes, wouldn’t it be fine if that table were covered in full color, sturdy terrain?
It sure would.
That’s why, for a limited time, TinkerHouse is extending discounted Kickstarter pricing, stretch goals, and flat-rate shipping for our latest Sci-fi terrain release to the entire tabletop community. Up to 40% off retail on pre-orders for August delivery.
So go ahead and get that Satcomm Tower with the rotating dish. Or a set of Mag-Lev rails and cars. Or a Perimeter Wall with guard towers and a movable gate. After all, good things should come to those who’ve had to wait.
