Adepticon recap

So, it has been more than a week since our return home from Adepticon and it is time to reflect. I have been going to conventions for years but this was my first time to Adepticon so this will not only be a recap of how the team did but my general impression/evaluation of the con.

Sensei Xeno here coming to you straight from Adepticon where I'm waiting in line to get the highly coveted Adepticon shield bag from Battlefoam. When I arrived at the Westin to check in there were only 3 to 4 people in line. Less than 30 min later, the size of the line had grown to 30 or 40 people, and the line keeps growing.

So the rest of Team Scabbard and I are now sitting in line for the next 3 hours in hopes that we all get one.

More to come from Adepticon!

Episode 8 of BPR6s delayed slightly.

And by slightly I mean almost 3 weeks due to scheduling, editing, and life all conflicting.

Episode 8 should be up before we leave for Adepticon on Thursday.

Dark Eldar Update

Following in Duncan's foot steps, I too have a full painted army for 40k for the first time. I stole this image from the pics Mike took from the Maul at the Mall event. It is my 1850 list that includes:

1 Archon: shadow field and agonizer
3 squads of 4 trueborn: 4 blasters each and venoms (double cannons, flicker field, night shield)
3 squads of 5 warriors: 1 blaster each and venoms (double cannons, flicker field, night shield)
1o witches with hydra gauntlet in raider (flicker field)
9 witches with hydra gauntlet in raider (flicker field)
3 ravagers (flicker field, night shield)

I think it is a very balanced list game wise and got above average paint scores so I am very happy with how it turned out. I am however sad at one thing. Before deciding on the pain scheme I did two things. First I looked at all the colors of paint I have never used, and second I looked at pics of other DE armies on the interwebs so as to avoid having an army similar to others. You know what happened.....all the DE armies at the event were purple! I guess I missed the memo.

I am looking forward to adding an extra 150 pts of painted minis to get it to the 2000 pt level needed for the ATC. That is assuming I don't change my mind and decide to take Daemons between now and then. This is only about half the models I have for the DE so I have a lot of work ahead of me if I want them all painted.
