AdeptiCon: Last Chance to Register

AdeptiCon is the largest independent Warhammer event in the world. It’s the highlight of the year for many gamers, who spend months painting up new forces and perfecting their lists for the big weekend.

This year, the convention is bigger than ever, and not only will the Warhammer Community team be there, but we’re also bringing Warhammer TV, Forge World and members of the Games Workshop studios!

Today is your last day to register for the event, so if you’re free around the 23rd to 26th of March, and you can make it to the Chicago area, then get yourself there. It’s sure to be a blast.

The highlights of AdeptiCon each year are it’s Warhammer 40,000 events. These are the best-attended Warhammer gaming tournaments and campaigns anywhere on the planet (that we know of), with some incredibly painted armies taking part on some stunning boards, and much glory goes to the victors.

We caught up with the head Warhammer 40,000 tournament organiser for AdeptiCon, Chris, to talk us through the main Warhammer 40,000 events this year.


This year AdeptiCon is back with exciting Warhammer 40,000 action, and time is running short to claim your place in history! Make your plans to join us the weekend of March 23rd-26th in Schaumburg IL, just outside of Chicago. You better hurry, as pre-registration closes today! AdeptiCon offers a full range of Warhammer 40,000 events, ranging from the competitive Warhammer 40,000 Championships to the thematic spectacle that is the flagship of AdeptiCon: the Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament. Come for the games, stay for the experience!

This signature AdeptiCon event returns bigger and better than ever!

Join gaming clubs and Warhammer 40,000 veterans from around the world for a full 2-day event, as teams of four players each compete in all aspects of our hobby. This casual format rewards thematic play and army construction while partnering teams against each other for exciting gaming action. Come join the fun, and you may even find yourself across the table from the Games Workshop Design Studio Team!

Experience an AdeptiCon twist to an old classic. Prepare your 1,850 point armies for some action-packed gaming against some of the fiercest competitors in the world! Players will compete in 4 rounds of 1 on 1 battle, pitting their skills and armies against a mission set designed to test the toughest of the tough. The top 16 qualifiers will compete in a winner take all elimination round on Friday. Can you claim the title of AdeptiCon Warmaster?

Thanks, Chris.

We’re particularly excited about these this year, as we’ll be covering the games on Warhammer Live, direct from the top tables, so if you can’t make it (boo) you can still watch along at home.

Also at AdeptiCon this year will be seminars run by the Games Workshop studio, showcasing some new and unreleased stuff for the very first time. You absolutely do not want to miss these. (We’ll probably show some of the highlights later, but there’s nothing quite like being there.)

AdeptiCon takes place on 23rd-26th March in the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel near Chicago.

We’ll see you there.
