Adepticon: The Con of Cons!

  • Nick Nanavati won the 40k Champs with this list. He had to play Dan Platt, Sean Nayden, and Tony Grippando to win the event. All amazing 40k players. Check out the BCP player app for more lists!


  • Frankie and Andy won best Chaos at the Adepticon team event
  • Reece went 4-1 with his free peoples army! Go Reece! He would have went 5-0 except in his loss he failed a 4 inch run to get onto an objective.
  • No Age of Sigmar winning lists have been posted yet, as far as PeteyPab could find. Any luck with the rest of the internet?

  • Plastic Thunderhawk? Last Forgeworld Thunderhawk was already sold.

Rant Session

Tactics Corner

  • Talons of the Emperor is available now! It is a $111.50 savings MSRP box and comes with the codexes for Custodes and Sisters of Silence. The rules for these guys are nuts.


  • Custodes look alright. They get access to a really expensive venerable land raider that has a 5++. They also have their own warlord trait table.
  • Sisters of Silence are really, really good. Does this mean the end of psychic deathstars?

    Why can’t a Thunderhawk be used in normal game?

    The ITC limits super heavy and Gargantuan flyers.

        For an awful lot of people, including the people doing this podcast? It actually is.

    I’m sure by the time the plastic thunderhawk hits retail 8th edition will be out as well. And I fully expect a lot of things to change. So while gargantuan/super heavy flyers might not be currently legal in the itc things may change.

      When 8th drops the whole ITC FAQ should be obsolete day 1.

      And I’m willing to bet the boys at the ITC would love to not need to make a new one 😉

        Jural, that is a very fair assumption.

    Going to be doing a custodian and sister army for fun to keep me going until 8th edition drops. Then I’ll probably grab some FW stuff and make it a 1
    30k army.

    I bought two of these and I am selling the second land raider and dreadnought to reduce the cost 🙂

      this would be my main criticism of this show. i’m generally at work and can’t watch the livestream when it’s on but i do like to listen to it on itunes on the way home. there’s often a pretty significant gap between the show airing and getting it uploaded.

      …at least it’s pretty significant when you’re an impatient bastard like me.

      please halp.
