Another Adepticon has once again come and gone, we’ve all settled back in at home so lets take a quick stroll through the show that was!
It was another fantastic event up in Chicago, and went off without a hitch. Adepticon is the “big show” of the tourney scene and now we head into the rest of year with Wargamescon, NOVA, Feast, ATC, and many more coming your way.
Here’s some of the results from the 40k side of things:

Half the field is Necrons with only two players (I believe) making it from last years top 16, which is pretty amazing– the difference a year and new edition makes.
