Road to AdeptiCon – Seminars

AdeptiCon is one of the highlight events in the Warhammer calendar and one of the largest dedicated wargaming conventions in the world. Amongst dozens of other tournaments campaigns and competitions, it plays host to the famed Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament: the largest number of gamers playing in a single Warhammer tournament anywhere in the world.

As the shining beacon of hobby awesomeness around North America’s Great Lakes, Games Workshop and the Warhammer Community team are delighted to support this fantastic event.

This year, we’ll be there in a big way, and as well as broadcasting some of the action live with Warhammer TV, we’re also taking along some of our design studio staff who will be playing in the some of the events and giving seminars on various aspects of the Warhammer hobby.
