Back from AdeptiCon 2011. I've gotten more sleep than I did at the convention. Overall, my feelings were very good about the convention. Privateer Press impressed me a ton with their commitment to making Adepticon a home for Warmachine and Hordes. To do this, they put a battle box of the 4 main Warmachine factions (Cygnar, Khador, Protectorate, Cryx) in the first 1000 grab bags for AdeptiCon. That's right, they put at least $50,000 retail into AdeptiCon's free swag bag. Holy hell!!! Privateer Press earns a very, very large thumbs up from me on this. They were also running demos all weekend and giving out free Primes (the rulebook) to players!
Privateer Press also shipped out some display boards for AdeptiCon. The photos will be after the break. The board that impressed me the most was the Corvis board. This board was used to make a historical battle report in an upcoming edition of No Quarter Magazine and we got to see it early. It looked fucking fantastic. Very, very beautiful. I couldn't stop looking at it. I took photos before models were placed on it, as I forgot I had a camera once AdeptiCon started in earnest (doh!).
