The Road to Adepticon.


Things are moving  at a fevered pace in the 13th Legion getting prepared for Adepticon 2017. All of the events we are running this year are completely sold out. If you’d like to see some of the details for events we are running at Adepticon, take look under the events section of the 13th Legion site.

Steve Schlegel “The Gentleman Gamer” is putting together some amazing graphics and play cards to make the events run smooth and seamless. JD “The Commissar” from Memphis has been whipping his crew nonstop, getting scenery ready and everything is coming together very nicely.

This year we will be doing some live video from each of the events.

Stay tuned for more details.

Adepticon Titanicus Adepticon 2016

I’ve been waiting to play this game all year Dan and I were super excited and pumped for our big game. A simplified version of titan battles not using 40 K rules but  rules from 25 years ago modified to the new larger scale models. It all came back to us in a flash as of 20 years had never gone by the elder were in our face and killing us quickly. It’s good to see that somethings never change .  Super fun times you will definitely be seen one of these events that the 13th soon. Check out the video below to see the action.
