Adepticon is only days away. As I have mentioned I am meeting up with Dave from the Tabor Warhammer League in DC to play in the Long War Doubles Tournament. As the day approaches I thought I would set my expectations for the con.
Dakka Dakka Moooooo!!!
My first expectation is to have fun. I know people have practiced and honed their armies for this event and Dave and I have played together once. Neither of us have played an ITC mission so I am expecting to get stomped. I am really looking for just a good time playing and rolling dice. It will be fun to team up with a buddy I hardly see and get to yell "Dakka Dakka Moooooo!" as we try to get some points.
In the vendor hall, there should be some interesting vendors. I hear Victoria Miniatures will have their own booth and I am sure Tectonic Craft Studio will be there as well. Games workshop will have a booth as well but I doubt they will have anything for me. I always look forward to the bin man. This guy brings a bunch of secondhand minis to events and you can just dive in and find some hidden gems. I need to start up a list for the models to look for. I am hoping to enlist the help of my wife to shift with me.
It will be nice to see the Miniwargaming Crew again. I am sure they wouldn't remember me but it is always good to see them. I have not heard if the Glacial Geek or any other 40k Celebrities will be there but I can be hopeful. While not celeb watching I plan on seeing all the cool models. The team tourney is always cool with the display boards and themes. I am hopeful to get a bunch of photos of all the stuff I could never pull off.
With these things in mind I think I will probably have a good weekend. I am excited to get the chance to revisit Adepticon. It has been six years since the last time I went.
