T-minus 7 days and counting!

Adepticon is just a week away and I thought I better get to posting what I have been doing to get ready. Once again I have to thank my parents for footing the airline bill for me to go, without that help, I would have been reading about Adepticon from Arizona, so thanks Mom & Dad!

So, I have been painting a Numidian Army for Warhammer Ancients Battle for Hank Edly. I offered to paint these guys up for him last year and they are now covered in paint. There is something like 70 figures plus 16 or so mounted cavalry models as well as an elephant. I will get pictures of these guys up once I get back from Chicago, I started packing these guys up for the trip.

I also will be running the two WAB events again at Adepticon like I have done in the last two years. We will have a 2000 point event on Saturday with two divisions, one being for the Classical Campaign we are running and one for the folks who bring other armies out of the classical period. The second event will be the Doubles event on Sunday, which is two teammates fighting with 1000 points each on the same side. This event is by far the most enjoyable out of the two WAB events for me since most guys just love playing alongside a buddy and talking smack to their opponents.

I also committed to bring two Posses for Legends of the Old West game on Friday night. I am bringing a Desperado and Lawman Posse. Both of these posses were painted for this event. It will be a 10 person free for all on a cool looking board. If you are at the event and not busy Friday night, come on by for some six gun action!

I am getting to play Lord of the Rings again this year on Friday for the Singles Championship. I am taking a Numenorian force with Isildur leading them. I had to paint up about 12 guys to add to the other 18 guys I had already painted. I was going to build a new display board, but I recycled the one from last year. Hopefully I will do better this year as opposed to last years showing!

Now I fly in on Thursday and come home on Monday. When I fly, I prefer to carry on my stuff, I hate checking bags. But it looks like this year I am going to have to check at least one bag since I am carrying Hanks Army out to him. I also will have all my rulebooks and dice that I will pack as well.

My plan as always is to try to document as much as I can of Adepticon. I will be taking my new I-pod which shoots video along with my camera. Adepticon is becoming a large event and there is plenty to see and do. If you follow this blog and are going, I look forward to seeing you.

Have fun! I look forward to seeing your reports.

I'm hoping to make it to my first Adepticon next year.
