Adepticon Update Thread Round 1 through 4 Updated.



We’re at Adepticon! I will be updating this post as we go.

The new venue at Adepticon is really cool, it’s a beautiful hotel and the convention center is huge! The 40k championships is in a massive hall, 60,000sqft by itself and that’s just one of many. Really cool.

The 40k championships is as full of nasty lists as expected. This format really encourages it and we’re seeing the heat. First round I drew Eldar, Seer Council Daemon Summonning with triple Wraithknights. Frankie drew Bill Kim. Brutal! More updates to come.

Round 1

Frankie lost a close one to FMC daemons. He got victory snaked by maelstrom at the very end.

Geoff lost in a tyranny mirror match when a psychic shriek popped two hive tyrants turn 1! He was unable to recover.

Reece managed to beat the Seer Council Eldar by getting the bully boys into them in combat, and ended up tabling the Eldar and daemons.

Round 2

Frankie’s Dark Eldar lost another one to drop pod White Scars.

Geoff won his game against AdLance and triple Flyrants.

Reece drew Eldar again, this time Wraithknights,  wave serpents, and triple Flyrants.  The orks prevailed again, with the Eldar having only a jet bike left at game’s end.

Game 3

Reece pulled his nemesis, tau in hammer and anvil. Luckily, the tau dice were cold and it was a battle to the last turn, but the tau took it in a bloody, narrow victory.

Frankie played tyranids and lost a close one when his air units went cold and missed every shot the turn they came in.

Geoff played a typhon chaos army, and managed to win.

Game 4

Frankie played decurion deachment necrons and won his first game!

Geoff played Paul Murphys super friends cent star, and won it!

Reece pulled a wolf star, grey knight army, was dead tired and asked his oponent if he just wanted to brave heart it and assault each other. He agreed, the armies charged, everything was dead turn two apart from a few models on either side. The wolf models left were faster and took more objectives to win a close one.

    I like that you basically put Seer Council Summoning with Triple Wraithknight as equally brutal as Bill Kim no matter what he’s running. 😀

    I should also add that MrMoreTanks lost game one against Orks.

    • fluger March 19, 2015 1:04 pm #

      And won game two against drop pod marines.

    Those Orkish wins are inspirational to this aspiring Waaagh!!! leader. Please give us more details of how you pulled the victories off when you can.

    Orks are looking pretty powerful, unlike say Dark eldar:)

    Bill Kim was my teammate at the ATC the year we won it in 2013. He is a very very good Daemon player as well as a multiple GT winner.

    It’s no shame to lose to him. On the other hand I feel sorry for the guys who lost to Reece. Haha….j.k. Reece. Great job so far btw.

    go orks go!

  14. Simon March 19, 2015 2:07 pm #

    Go on Reece! Ding em in the D!

  15. TinBane March 19, 2015 3:45 pm #

    Orks go deep on the counter, counter meta. Go Reece! 🙂

    Where’s the livestream? 🙂

    Poor Frankie. Anyone here still claims that Dark Eldar got better with the new codex?

    • Jagmeister March 20, 2015 6:13 pm #

      I can’t really say they got worse, assuming we’re talking about the 5th edition codex in a 7th edition meta. If we’re talking about a 5th edition codex in a 5th edition meta, then, yea, they’re worse, but that was 2010… Frankly, I’m surprised Frankie won against Necron although it’s a bit hard to since we don’t know the lists involved.

    • Nick March 21, 2015 3:08 am #

      Yep. Ive been doing quite well with the new codex and supplement. Running a Covenite Detachment from supplement and CAD from DE codex.

    Love the Braveheart challenge when you’re not feeling it.

    What Geoff lost to a melee Nid list? I thought he was the founder of competitive nids!
