The Adepticon 2016 40k Championships is on! Reece, Frankie, Rawdogger, and Geoff “Incontrol” are all competing with over 200 other 40k players for a spot on day 2’s top 16 bracket! Stay tuned for more Adepticon 40k coverage, tactics, and lists!
Reece Robbins: The sly ol’ devil himself, Reece has been playing the game forever and it shows in his ability to have a chance to win virtually every game he plays. Reece is known for bringing wonky lists and Adepticon is no exception! He is hoping to make it to day 2 with a Crimson Fists list, contain the Skyhammer Annihilation Force, and a scrappy, underused Siege Dreadnought in a Lucius Pattern Drop Pod.
- Round 1: Reece wins! 29-1 against a Blood Angels Assault Army.
- Round 2: Reece wins! 30 points against a White Scars Battle Company, with Drop Pods and lots of firepower.
- Round 3: Reece Loses! Reece plays the world’s greatest 40k player Frankie and his mean Grav-Cav Battle Company
- Round 4: Reece wins! 30-0 vs a nasty Astra Militarum list in a close game.
- Finished 89 battle points, 18th overall of 184 players.
Frankie “The World’s Greatest”: Frankie is bringing his tried and true White Scars Space Marine Battle Company. With lot’s of Grav-Cannons in Rhinos, Khan, and a spattering of bikes, Frankie is almost a sure bet to make day 2. However his list does have some bad match-ups and must overcome the dreaded Purge the Gladi….I mean, Purge the Alien Mission.
- Round 1: Frankie wins! 29-0 against an Eldar list. Presumably with Wraithknights, Scatbikes, and Warp Spiders.
- Round 2: Frankie wins! Playing against a Tau army 30 points scored.
- Round 3: Frankie wins! See Above.
- Round 4: Frankie wins! 30-0 vs. double Wraithknight/VSG/Scat Pack Eldar.
- Frankie makes the finals as 4th seed, 119 of 120 battle points.
- Frankie wins the first round of the finals vs. another double Wraithknight Eldar list, 30-0! Next up, ANOTHER Eldar army, lol.
- Frankie looked like he was set to alpha strike the Eldar player off the board. But the Eldar player was having none of that and SEIZED on the greatest 40k player in the world! The game looks close now can Frankie pull off a key win to make it into the final 4?
- In what turned out to be a game decided by who would go first (big surprise) Frankie loses 21-9 in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Adepticon 40k championships! Good job Frankie you made us all proud!
Jason “Rawdogger”: Jason is bringing an Astra Militarum (IG) army featuring “Belligerence” a Stormlord female with a bad attitude and lethal features. Hopefully Rawdogger can scrap together enough wins to be able to make day 2.
- Round 1: Jason wins! 22-8. Belligerence killed herself not one Wraithknight, but TWO big Eldar Lords of War bringing up her epic meter to over 9000. Eldar are proving to be really common at this year’s Adpeticon, luckily the crew know how to stop those tricky space elves!
- Round 2: Jason loses! Only totaling 5 points against Tau is not enough to be able pull out a win against those damn space commies.
- Round 3: Jason loses! I didn’t get much info on this one, except that Jason “got rocked by a Hell Forged Hunting Pack”.
- Round 4: Jason wins! Seizes the initiative on Tyranids before the Flyrants can get airborne, Belligerence guns them down.
- Jason finishes 2-2.
Geoff “Incontrol”: Incontrol decided to put his War Convocation to the side in favor of his old army, Nids! He is bringing Lots of Mawlocs, and Flyrants in a Tyranid list that could play spoiler to a lot of players backed by such a saavy player.
- Round 1: InControl wins! Geoff beat a double Wraithknight list with a Seer Council, and whole Craftworld ton of Scatbikes. 30-0
- Round 2: InControl ties! 15 all (not much info here on this game)
- Round 3: InControl loses! to Bill Kim, a multiple Adepticon winning champion.
- Round 4: InControl loses! Draws an Unholly Tetrad list that goes full Super Saiyan with buffs, can’t hurt them, and goes down hard.
- InControl finishes 1-2-1.
