How you might ask? Well let me take you a tale of silliness.

In a matter of hours, registration for Adepticon is slated to begin. I am pumped about this event. Catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, partying, gaming, and hopefully winning is what these GTs are all about. So, Id love to know who all is coming. Be sure to give me a shout out if you follow the blog. I want to meet you. Eric Hoeger and Jon Willingham are going to be here as well, even though they arent running a bike army. So if you see a bunch of legion of the damned bikes along with some blue eldar, stop on over!
Good luck to everyone and may the dice be with you!

The Adepticon FAQ can be found here.
No major changes in this one, but here are the highlights:
You can no longer have your int. dropped to zero by Soporific Musk.
A Furioso Librarian Drednought can now roll for rulebook powers.
A psychic shooting attack which comes from a brotherhood of psykers unit can come from any model
Just in general, it is now more difficult to leave assault.
Sadly, no FAQ changes which says that a Space Marine bike list automatically wins all games. But I can keep hoping.
Have at it!

If you have ever been to a major GT before, you know that when the table pairings are assigned in between rounds it is complete chaos. People fighting for the first chance to read who is going where and who they will be facing. Adepticon is no different. In fact it is worse do to the size of the event. I hate the table finding process due to this mad rush. Anything to alleviate this problem will be a godsend in my book.
Well it appears that my demands have been answered! Adepticon is going to be using technology in order to solve this problem. Instead of posting sheets and having everyone swarm to them like locust, they are going to send table pairings to your cell phone via text message and/or e-mail. How cool is that! If I am not mistaken, they are the first event to use technology in order to solve this problem. Assuming it goes off without a hitch, I could see it being utilized at all major GTs within the year.
So how does it work?

Given that there is now less then a week until I start driving to Adepticon, I decided to actually get to work on my 40k related tasks. The first thing I decided to knock out is working on my team's display boards. Given the lack of time and the fact our team was assembled at the last minute, we aren't going for some grandiose team display. Instead, I am shooting for portability and small size.
Smaller is better right? For those who have not been to major tournament, moving models in between rounds is a complete pain in the ass. 256 people shifting spots sucks. Especially when everyone is carrying around gigantic displays. So I have a solution to that problem.
