Adepticon 2010

This year, on a whim, I decided to take off of work on a Friday and head down to this convention just to see what it was about.  The main factor for me going down there was to meet up with some friends and there were a couple of vendors there that I was pretty excited to see their miniatures.  These two shared a booth and are definitely bringing some great miniatures to the show.  Warlord Games and Mantic Games were what I was talking about, both companies brought some great miniatures, I only ended up getting some of the undead miniatures from Mantic, but I could see getting some figures from the Pike and Shotte line from Warlord in the future, they have some great generic pikeman infantry and the like.

Those miniatures aside, the biggest part of Adepticon that I liked was the Bitz trading that takes place at night.  I knew this was going to take place, but fortunately for my wallet, the ATM was out of order at the hotel.  I was able to do a little wheeling and dealing, and it was totally worth it.  There was so much there it was astounding, seeing entire lines of Forgeworld models going on sale for nearly free, all of the older miniatures showing up here and there, as well as seeing tons of stuff still in the box.  This is something that I will definitely be traveling down there for next year and bringing as much as I can bear to bring with me to this.  I’m anticipating good things to take place with this…

And now for something completely different (but way better), a selection of photo’s that I took down there:
