Like the title says who's going, what events are you participating in and what armies are you bringing.

If you don't know, Adepticon is the premiere event for GW games and more in North America if not rivaling Games Day UK. Tis is my 3rd year attending. I play the team tourney on saturday and the 40k championships on sunday. Last year was my best showing with 14th out of 168 in the 40k championships. So I'll start it off with:

HoD- team tourney-chaos, 40k championships with bugs.

I am going with John G, Brian, and Dooley. We are leaving @ 8am on Friday. I have yours and Eric's cell and I pm'd him mine I will also pm you with it.

We are just playing in the Team on Saturday and I am if possible going to try to bribe my way into some of these sold out classes. With this being my first time I didn't realize you needed to register for them I thought a weekend pass would do.

I'm heading up with a few guys from acme. I'll be playing in the combat patrol and the championships. My original intention was Orks for combat and Eldar for champs, but looks like it might be a last minute switch to Orks all around.

I'm also looking forward to a few games of Warmachine and hopefully aeronautica.

Yep.. We are up for the team event on Saturday - (Necrons) and plans to hang out on Friday just checking out the con.

1) Adult beverages on Friday is an awesome idea
2) Do they have any tables for pick up games?
3) What about areas to paint?
4) Who is in charge of waking up Chad Saturday morning?

You have it wrong I will be up Saturday morning its Saturday afternoon that will be the issue.

I have a third shift type schedule so I am up all night its the 9 - 1 time frame that will be the issue, and as any good tournament goer does I will have a pack full of "5 Hour Energy" and some "Red Bulls".

I for one had a blast. I took 1st in the saturday Combat Patrol with my snakebite army. Not as well in the Sunday Championships. Mostly due to a fatal error in my first game. I got my Warboss and Nob Bikers into the perfect position against a tyranid army castled up in the corner and then promptly tossed the dice to fire their dakka guns rather than their kombi-flamers! This of course left his termagant screen intact, his 3 zoanthropes at 1 with a single wound, and his genestealers in perfect position to counter assault and wipe out my unit.
Oh well, the rest of the tourney went well with only a minor grip over an opponent that tried to slow play me (we tabled him, so that's ok).
All in all a great weekend and I look forward to next year.
And because all great road trips deserve a single great image, here you are...


I call it 'No Room for the Drop Pod'

Pretty sure our whole crew had a good time. I know I had a great time. I have a bunch of pics I will post sometime this week. I was supposed to be moving this last weekend instead of being in Chicago, so now I am waiting for the internet to get hooked up instead of leeching off someones in the neighborhood. After that I will upload some stuff.

We struggled in the Team comp. but had a lot of fun! I went 2-1 on Sunday, chaos daemons did me in of all things, _ucking fateweaver. I'll have something for him next time. I played 2 chaos daemon armies and 1 space wolf army. Smile

I had a great time.

Friday: Pickup between 8 am and 9 am.

Friday: Noon. Arrive at the Chicago Battlebunker (about 3/4 a mile from Adepticon)

Friday 12:30: Eat Portillos Hot Dog

Friday 1pm: Back to the battle bunker to throw down on an awesome Ork Junk yard board, Crons vs. Spacewolves. The board looked cooler then it really was as all models were tipping all over the place.

Friday 3:30: check into the hotel.

Friday 4:00: Walk up to our room...uh... it was huge, like a condo.

Friday 4:15: down to the Con
At the con we caught some of the big stuff on the table for the Gladiator. Walked the vendor isles. Actually not as much stuff as I would have thought. I ended up with a truck load of the battlefield in a box from GF9. Really nice stuff. Gave away a bunch of buttons and Mr. T. Chains

Friday 6:15 - Beer time with the Wayno, Warmonger, and the crew at Rockbottom Brewery

Friday 8:45 - Go to the BIG Target to get some beer.

Friday 8:50 - Leave Target b/c of course...NO BEER in Target. The team member who recommended Target for beer will not be named as it has been a source of endless ridicule over the weekend.

Friday 9:20 - beer has been obtained and we retire to the room to watch MSU and shoot the sH*t with the boys.

Saturday: 5:15 am - Sean's up taking a shower.

Saturday 5:30- I take my shower

Saturday 5:45 - I say to Sean...."want to get some Breakfast?" Sean says "We have to check in at 7 am, we only have 15 min." showing me his watch that says it is 6:45. I remind him that we are on central time

Saturday 6:15 - eating at the Space Marine Diner. (actually a greek 24 hour diner called the Omega). Best Pancakes in the world.

Saturday 7:00 am check in, set up and check out all the other armies.
Space wolves and IG rule the day.

More Later....

Sat:
7:30a to 8:30a - Hear about 10 times that we are the only Necrons team.

8:30a - Team decides to start drinking.
9:00a - Quiz : wow... Holy Sh*t... I don't know anything about 40K fluff.
9:30a - Round 1. John teams up with Wittdooley which is our worst match up on paper. Faced Space Marines with 2x Land raider and a ton of bikes infiltrating.
10:25 - Necrons Phase out.
10:26 - On beer #3.
1:00p - Round 2. Chad & John vs a Nid/Tau match up. Faired well but couldn't kill 2 termaguants to create a push situation for controlling table quarters. Chad's dice abandoned him in the first 2 rounds. Big win with no phase out. Consumed about 4 beers in the game round
3:50p - Switch to Gin and Tonic
4:15p Round 3 John and Kain vs a balanced SM list, 2 LR termies, 2 Tact squads, Lysander and Chaplain. Pretty standard game which was evident we were going to phase out before time expired. Poor reserver rolls kept 2 units of Crons off the board until round 5. Fun group of guys and a fun game.
6:00p - Harry Carey's for a steak dinner. Glass of Cab and a medium raret New York strip with Mushrooms. Now I'm really in the mood to throw down.
7:00 - something foul has crawled up my azz. Seriously... I think I killed 3 tables after I crop dusted them.
7:30p - Game 4. John and Chad vs...WTF SM again? Another Lysander list this time w/ shrike. Necrons get their dice on in round 1 and 2. By the end of round 3 there are no SM on the board (even the drop pod is destroyed) and we are waiting on to units to enter from reserve. They enter, roll Deep strike mishap for 1 and are destroyed. Second unit gets pounded by warriors and 7 destroyers. Wipe out.

9:00p - take our gaming stuff up to the room
10:00p - listen to awards
11:30p - Hit the space marine diner for a little after gaming snack. Waffles....mmmmm.
12:45a - lights out.

Sunday
8a - jump back in the car and head to Cincinnati.

Great time... can't wait for next year. Already brewing on army themes.

Wow, looks like it was a blast!

That picture was taken after I was on about 36 hours of no sleep. I was up from 11:00a Thur - 12:00a Sat, got in a solid 7 1/2 hours sleep and Saturday went pretty well.

I do have internet now (after having moved), later tonight I will try to post the pictures I took and my take on the event.

Also after watching some video's from around the other boards in about half of them you see someone with a signature "Gold Chain" either on or in the background. We made our mark in 2010 - Great idea on the schwag John
