AdeptiCon

Warhammer 40,000 Preview in 2 Days...

While we are all still lamenting not being able to see this Preview, originally planned for AdeptiCon 2020, in person, you can still get a virtual sneak peek at the future of Warhammer 40,000 this Saturday. Life (or in this case Games Workshop), finds a way, as Ian Malcolm would happily tell you. This should be an epic reveal and not something you'd want to miss or, frankly, hear about a few hours later from someone on the social media. So tune in at 2PM BST (my computer tells me that's 8:00 AM in Chicago- standard Earth time). Come see if the future is as grim and dark as we hope...

AdeptiCon

AdeptiCon Update

First and foremost, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. It bears repeating that no one felt the loss of this year’s convention more deeply than the AdeptiCon staff and crew. We miss seeing all of you and look forward to the time we can once again share our hobby together in person. The community has come together over the last couple months in ways we haven’t seen before and it has been heartening.

We wanted to provide you with an update on the status of our shipping operations. We recently received the last of the Swag Bag components, many having been delayed for obvious reasons. The next step will be putting those components together and packaging them. We took some steps this weekend to get that process started. Unfortunately, as is the case across the nation, Illinois remains under a shelter-in-place order and large groups of people are limited in meeting. This makes organizing and packing the Swag Bags more challenging and time-consuming.

We expect shipping to start, in general, in early June. We may be able to start some shipping sooner, but the situation remains fluid and complex. The shipping will start with the VIG material, then t-shirts and hoodies. But over the next 30-45 days, we expect to have had made substantial progress in fulfilling every order.

Thank you and stay safe,

The AdeptiCon Staff

We got ours today! The cat says “thank you for the crinkle paper”

My loot arrived

So huge surprise today! I got a UPS tracking number! Thank you to the staff and volunteers for all the hard work! Very excited!

Got notice yesterday that my stuff will arrive today. You guys and gals are awesome. I look forward to seeing you all next year.

Arrived today! Thanks for working to get these sent out. Some very neat things as always. And I look forward to wearing my Adepticon 2020 shirt to the next game night.

Thank you so much! For everything you all do. Stay safe and see you next year

Got the shipment! Thanks for all your efforts and continue to stay safe!

I got the shipping notification a couple days ago, I'm really excited to check it out.

I got my stuff today but was missing one of my shirts

Will we receive a notification of shipping email? I’ve lived in perpetual anxiety since the survey

You guys are the very definition of hobby heroes. By that same token though; don't take unnecessary risks and stay safe. And if anyone complains about your safety getting in the way of your safety... well... may they fail every save in every game until the end of their lives.

thank you for the clear update! im sure everyone appreciates the efforts you're pumping forward 🙂

I was looking towards this all years, bought and painted a new army just for it. Thanks for all the hard work and better luck next year! I'm for sure going to do the best i can to support you in the next upcoming years.

Thanks for the update and all the work you’re doing in these crazy times. We’ll get our toys whenever we do. I look forward to the return of Adepticon next year!

My VIG bag came today and it's AWESOME! We missed you guys this year and can't wait for next year. 2020 will be our Year Without a Con since Adepticon and Gencon had to cancel but we are ready for 2021 to get here.

Thank you all for your dedication and hard work. Stay safe, our toys will come eventually! Thanks for the update!

Thanks for the update. Keep everyone safe first and thanks for all your work during this time!

Stay safe, and thank you for the hard work and dedication.

Guys. Take your time! We appreciate all the hard work you do and we fully understand how difficult this must be. Stay safe over everything!

I have changed my travel plans in the last few years so I can be there on Wednesday night and help with those, it’s a fun time. Thanks guys and stay safe!

Stay safe and take care! But you guys are going above and beyond what’s expected. Thank you for your dedication!

All the best to you and yours and thank you for the effort! It must be a uber hard thing to organize in the C-19 world.... can’t wait until AdeptiCon 2021!

You guys are the best. Keep up the good work and we cant wait for next year!!!

Thank you guys for all your efforts! Even if we don't receive our shipments by Christmas, or later... no worries, as long you guys stay safe and ready to go for next year's Adepticon.

You guys do a great job! Thx. Stay safe.

This model looks strange like his arms are to high for his body or his heads to low.

So small question before I go try to buy one of these I was one of the lucky ones for a VIG. Is this guy in that bag and follow up do you guys know when it might go out?

Has anyone seen them say what the preview event model was going to be yet?

Is the sister of battle model included in the VIG bag? Or should I pick her up separately?

Since I couldn't travel to adepticon I am really thinking of getting this model.

Well either neither have been made available to order yet or the link to do so is bad

His arms are sprouting from his head...

Why are his arms coming out of his ears?

Picked up some of their bases at last year's Adepticon, really love the detail on them! Was looking forward to see if I could win another base from the gumball machine this year...

Best bases and basing supplies around - and a pretty good value to boot! (even before the discount code). I stock up every year at adepticon! Thanks guys!! 🙂

From Wanderlight Wargames: Like many of you, Wanderlight Wargames is saddened to be at home instead of Adepticon right now. To "celebrate," I'll be including a free gift with any web order over $44 from now through Sunday - no promo code required.

What will you get? Who knows?! Only two things are certain - gifts will be Wanderlight Wargames products, and bigger orders will get more/better gifts.

Check out new products launched this weekend: etsy.com/shop/wanderlightwargames

AdeptiCon

And the award goes to...

Reserves of Renown Results

First, thanks to everyone who participated. There were a lot of great entries and it really illustrates the amount of work people put in to their AdeptiCon forces. The judges meticulously went through all the photos a few times and we have the final results here:

Staff Entry Award: Mork Rudley for his tank.

Bronze: Mark Maxey for the fantastic Sepulchral Guard.
Silver: Ben Hardy for his amazing Titanicus battlegroup.
Gold: Yael Guery for his stunning Ultramarines.

Well done. We also have three special “Judge’s Awards.” These are for stand-out entries that the judges found particularly innovative or creative.

Chris: Jessica Rhae Gains for her very cool Black Coach.
Damon: Cory Stockstill for the Star Wars Legion night-vision squad.
Dave: Will Podlewski for his awesome 30K army.

Thanks again everyone. If you’re one of these seven winners, PM AdeptiCon and I can collect your mailing info. Then, at some point in the future, we can award your effort! Also, thanks to Chris Borer and Damon Drescher for helping with this.
