When our crew was originally approached to entertain 80 gamers over a two night period for Adepticon, I was skeptical to our success. My bias founded on my limited familiarity with 40k and War Hammer and Its point based highly competitive tournaments wasn't our style. Let's face it, our rules are little more than guidelines and objective based gaming on this scale can be tedious.
To our surprise the two ethos of our hobby, War-Gamer and Tabletop-mini-gamer share a love of spectacular terrain, a good laugh and most of all rum.....
About a year ago Hank Edly one of the board member s of Adepticon recruited my crew to present a large, semi-historical event to expand the diversity of the gamer demographic beyond the already successful Sci-Fi/Fantasy attendees. With our presence accompanied by incredible contingents of both Flames of War and Saga, Hank intended to bring a wider verity of interest to this fun convention.
