Adepticon 2015 Prologue

 Well it has been awhile but this has been the craziest 6 months up to an event ever. And to kick it off we have the premiere of the prestigious Team Bolt Action Doubles extravaganza bonanza fiesta grande. There is no shortened version of the name. Deal with it.

On the ballet are custom, historic scenarios to match 10 different and unique battlefields from the war. Utah beach, pegasus bridge, Tunisia, Foy, Caen, Stalingrad, La Rochelle sub pen.... to name  a few.... Yeah I just said La Rochelle sub pen... the one from Indiana Jones and from Das Boot. It is going to blow your mind. 
 I don't remember if I posted any shots of the pegasus bridge table, just needs some more more scatter stuff but that is one of the tables folks will be battling on.
 We have got super generous prize support from Trenchworx, Offensive Miniatures, and Mad Bob Emerson Miniatures. They are all making awesome metal and 3D printed kits that you cannot find elsewhere.
 I also finally finished my M3 Lee tank platoon. These guys underwent some painting difficulties in trying to adapt a white washing snow technique to desert weathering. The end result is some  veteran Lee crews adapting German ambush camouflage...
 The Lees are made by Blitzkrieg models, who now offer free shipping to the world..... so yeah...
Some epic snow terrain for Lt. Speirs and the assault on Foy....

 But watch out for those aliens! Also finished up my Zentraedi battle fleet of the Crimson Moon. These models are for the 1st of its kind, Robotech Tactics tournament. Hopefully those fancy crystals help these guys on the battlefield.

 And back to WW2. A late addition to the painting que. This M16 halftrack is a beast! The Bad Boys are rocking quad .50 calibers for anti-aircraft or dealing with pesky enemy veteran infantry. This half track and the M3 Lees will appear as part of a ringer army if we have an odd number of folks. This model is made by Warlord.
Sorry about the slow updates, but ADEPTICON IS HERE! Check back for massive photo bombs, coverage, and reports of the best US gaming convention!

A secret spy plane caught wind of the La Rochelle sub pen table. This is a 3D rendering. You will have to be there in person to see the finished product! Or just check back here afterwards.
