AdeptiCon is one of the biggest Warhammer events in the world and over the past few years we’ve loved having a chance to attend. For one, it’s awesome to meet so many hobbyists in one place, while for another, it’s a great chance to make some exciting reveals. AdeptiCon 2018 was a fantastic experience – join us as we recap our favourite moments.
The Games Workshop Studio Preview is always an exciting event – who doesn’t like getting a sneak peek at new stuff? With last year’s AdeptiCon Studio Preview announcing the latest edition of Warhammer 40,000, fans were wondering how we’d top it – we think it’s safe to say that the Idoneth Deepkin, new Imperial Knights and, of course, plastic Sisters of Battle did the trick!
AdeptiCon brings together all kinds of hobbyists, from hardcore gamers to dedicated painters and plenty who are both. This year, we got to see some fantastic armies across all events, as well as some top-tier matched play as the world’s best Warhammer players went head to head. We kicked off with Warhammer Underworlds: Shadespire, crowning a new Grand Clash winner following a thrilling three-round game on Warhammer Live, while, throughout the weekend, we streamed some fantastic matches of Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer Age of Sigmar alike.
Indeed, we even saw the combined forces of Warhammer Community and the Design Studio claim a win live! If you’re interested in checking any of these games out, all you need to do is subscribe to our Twitch channel to view our entire back catalogue at your leisure.
The Warhammer Heroes
AdeptiCon is a testament to the hard work of Warhammer fans across the world – if it wasn’t for a small army of devoted volunteers, an event on this scale simply wouldn’t be possible. We chose AdeptiCon as the perfect place to celebrate our Warhammer Heroes, presenting the US winners with their medals and certificates at a special awards dinner and announcing a fresh set of winners from Europe. You can learn more about them here.
Overall, we loved attending this year’s AdeptiCon, and we’re looking forward to sharing some of the convention spirit with fans in the UK this summer with Warhammer Fest – the ultimate celebration of the world’s greatest hobby. Tickets are disappearing fast, so get yours here.
