Once more, the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center will host the festivities and the entire hotel will be devoted to the AdeptiCon experience! For the first time ever, AdeptiCon will feature a full slate of events on Thursday, giving you FOUR full days to experience all that AdeptiCon has to offer.

A full schedule will be posted shortly before the web cart goes live on Monday, November 12th. Last year, our most popular events sold out within days, so act quickly to reserve your spot in the events of your choice!

The Westin is Approaching Critical Mass! Based solely off our announcement this past summer, reservations at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center have already filled 75% of our block for 2013. Don’t delay – make your hotel reservations today! The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center is taking reservations at our convention rate of $121/night.

To give these partnerships more chances to shine, the AdeptiCon Warhammer Fantasy Team Tournament will shift to a full-day, 3-round format on Friday, April 19th! If you haven’t already, its time to start coming up with your team’s theme, because the competition will be fierce on all fronts!

The Horus Heresy lists will not be allowed in the Team Tournament. While we have allowed units from IA books in the past, we have never allow army lists. Horus Heresy lists are also designed to be played using a specific variant of the 40K rules.

That said, there will be a specific Horus Heresy event Friday at AdeptiCon 2013 and you can always use Forge World models to represent units from a codex as long as the model conforms to the model policy.
