I know it would be a pain but why aren't all the necrons wearing gold chains? would they have something like this at Home Depot? like fake gold chain necklaces and cut and made to the right size? just would be neat...

Yea... having all 4000pts painted by one guy over the course of a year is cool and all but to do well at Adepticon you really need to kick it up about 5 notches.

Serious conversion work, theme, unique board and high quality paint are needed to score mad points. We were outclassed in all areas. With 3 kids, full time job and all that bullstuff I like to call an excuse, I just didn't get around to bringing the army to where it could be.

But this year... we are already planning ahead.

People plan ALL YEAR for Adepticon. Look at the pictures that Chad posted and you'll get a tiny sense of what goes into it.

In the grand scheme of things, we were really unprepared when it comes to the modelling aspect. If not for John we wouldn't have had a painted army at all.

As he said, we're going to be better prepared for next year. We'll have converted models (almost a must to score highly) and the painting will both start sooner, and not be placed soley on John's shoulders.

Putting in a good showing at Adepticon takes planning, organization, and preparation. In depth, and detailed, army lists are pretty much requisite. Involved painting and modelling is standard. People that aren't great at these things shouldn't expect to score well in a lot of the aspects.

Plus, watch any video from Adepticon. I guarantee in 90% of them you'll see someone sporting a chain or a button. I'd say for a first time, we did aight.
