Adepticon 2019- Images (Image Heavy!), Thoughts and Reflections, Oh My!
Greetings friends and hobbyists! Adepticon 2019 has just recently passed, and what a treat it was! (mostly).

Painted- Warhammer 40,000 Death Guard

Miniatures you’ve never seen: High Command sci-fi

Vintage Warhammer 40k 2nd edition
As well as the Tomorrow’s War game mentioned in the previous post, last week’s club game night also featured a game of 2nd edition Warhammer 40,000 at Games Plus in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. Those who know our club’s game tendencies may be asking themselves, “What were you doing playing Warhammer 40k, and why 2nd edition?” ... Read more
