Epic at Adepticon 2013

On the second, and last, day of my Adepticon trip, I participated in the Epic tournament. We had a slightly better turnout than with the Warmaster tournament - eight people participated. Again, the event was sold out with sixteen players, but with gamers being gamers, half showed up.

There was a good spread of armies participating - Space Marines, Eldar, Tau, Minervans, and Orks. Matt Alix (of The Nerdherders Podcast) pretty much swept the tournament with his Speed Freeks. He had a really cool unit of Fightabommaz made from 40K Stormboyz rokkit packs. They were pretty neat and each had a distinct look - very orky!

The boyz fought against Space Marines, Eldar, and Minervans - all to spectacular failure. As usual, the boyz did a poor job of maintaining their weapons and equipment, because I was failing to roll anything approaching decent. I really love the Orks, but with my dice rolling being the way it is, I don't know how long I can maintain the relationship - "Sorry Squiggy, it's me, not you..."

I have to apologize in advance for some of the photos - my objectives came out very blurry. I'll get better photos up at a later date. I was also unable to get a full army shot of the Eldar, Minervans, and Marines. Now, on to the show!
