AdeptiCon 2006 Ė Jan. News: 40K and Fantasy Iron Man Prizes Announced!

+++AdeptiCon 2006 January Update+++
AdeptiCon returns in 2006 to the Chicagoland Schaumburg Marriott on March 24-26! Gamers and hobbyists from all over the United States and the world are already making plans to attend the finest and largest fan-run Games Workshop convention in the nation. Why? See for yourself!

Our tournament lineup has expanded to three 40K and three Fantasy tournaments. These arenít your average Rogue Traders or Grand Tournaments Ė each event features original, challenging AdeptiCon missions, uniquely themed tables & terrain, and massive, sponsor-donated prize support.

Check out our Tournaments at the link below (Acrobat Reader required):

Those souls hardy enough to participate in all three 40K or Fantasy events will earn points towards the coveted Iron Man award. Not for the easily fatigued or the weak of heart, the Iron Man is a true test of fortitude. Pre-registration for the Iron Man competition is required, so donít miss out on your chance to claim the Iron Man title!

Bragging rights are nice, but ForgeWorld models make for a more tangible reward. So, the player earning the most Iron Man points from the 40K Gladiator, Team Tournament, and Championships becomes the proud owner of a ForgeWorld Tyranid Hierophant! The player picking up the most Iron Man points from the Fantasy Escalation, Championships, and Team Tournament takes home a ForgeWorld Fire Dragon!

These prizes are only two out of dozens that will be awarded at AdeptiCon 2006. And remember, you must pre-register for the Iron Man. Sign up through our online registration at http://www.adepticon.org.

Weíve also expanded our lineup of hobby seminars. Taught by some of the most skilled and well-known painters, sculptors, and converters in the hobby, AdeptiConís hobby seminars provide a priceless opportunity to learn the skills that have won our instructors award after award.
