AdeptiCon 2009 News – Incursion APE’s, Mold-making and Casting, and More!
Less than four weeks until AdeptiCon 2009, the “Can’t Miss” event of the Games Workshop miniature wargaming hobby! April 3rd-5th, 2009 will bring hundreds of gamers and hobbyists from across the world to Chicago for a weekend of fun and excitement.
2009 AdeptiCon Model Released
The first 800 AdeptiCon attendees will receive their own Grunt APE II model for the new Grindhouse Games miniature wargame/board game Incursion.
Incursion is set in the world of Grindhouse Games’ Secrets of the Third Reich, where American Armored Personal Exoskeletons (APEs) form the front line in Weird War II against the twisted creations of the Third Reich’s Special Weapons Development (SWD).
San Antonio Texas based Grindhouse Games has worked with West Wind Productions to develop Secrets of the Third Reich. They have just gone out on their own and launched a new and expanding miniatures range and website to support their new Weird War II boardgame: Incursion – while continuing to support Secrets of the Third Reich. Jim and John Bailey of Grindhouse Games also run the Alamo Warhammer Indie Grand Tournament in San Antonio every year. As fellow Grand Tournament organizers, Jim and John along with sculptor Seth Nash are thrilled to support the Adepticon.
