Adepticon Troop Box Winner and an Update on The Battleforce Giveaway This Weekend!

Old School here to announce the winner of our Troop box give away and also to announce an update to our battleforce giveaway at Adepticon this weekend. Here are the details:

First off, the winner of the troop box is one of the many blogs who helped us get the word out about the Battleforce Contest. For that, I would like to thank the kind folks at A Gentleman's Ones, Wolves for the Wolf God, Chaos Manifesto, Army of the Week, Narceron, The Emperor's Codex, Aspects of the Void, Twin Linked Awesome, The Wild Rider Host and the Ohiohammer blog and podcast. This isn't mentioning folks who are also DFG writers, like Rhellion ... nice try!

Alas, of all those stand up folks who helped us out (yel at us if we missed you!), there can be only one winner and this year, the winner of the troop box is ...

HOT Panda of Chaos Manifesto!! Panda, let us know what you would like! Again, I want to thank all the bloggers who helped us out, if any of you are at the event, please come see us, we owe YOU a drink if nothing else!

Now, the update to our Adepticon Battleforce Give-away - First the rules:

The official rules of the Adepticon Battle Force Contest:

If you purchase a drink (we prefer alcohol, but regular drinks are welcome) for a member of the Dark Future Games Staff wearing a shirt with the image above, you will earn an entry in our raffle for a battle force of the winners choosing (or an equal value in GW merch - current stuff only).

There is no limit to the amount of times a person can enter. (yes, you can buy us a case of beer too and receive an entry for each one!)

A member of DFG may not refuse the drink and must enter your name. If he is taking part in an event, he may pass the drink to a member who is not playing.

Will will choose the winner the Monday following Adepticon and mail out the prize as soon as we get our hands on what the winner wants!

Now this contest involves any of us wearing the shirt from the FIRST PHOTO of this post, but, since we didn't order the shirts until Saturday, we may not get them until Friday at the hotel ... so with that being said, the contest also applies to any of us wearing a T-Shirt or Hoodie bearing the logo from any of the shirts featured as photos on this post! Take a close look - black, red DFG shirts, the new shirt, the photo from the new shirt on a hoodie ... or SeerK's Craftworld Lansing shirt!

I know that's a lot to remember, but hey, you could win a battleforce! We look forward to hanging out with some readers, having a couple brews and enjoying ourselves this weekend, so come by and check us out - we will be all over the hotel this weekend!

With that being said, enjoy your weekend, we will see some of you and wish we could see others. Congrats again to HOTPanda and thank you to the bloggers who helped out! Expect tons of coverage this weekend here and maybe a little bit on our facebook too!

Oh, and minus a few new authors, here is a little photo for facial recognition!


  1. OMG I'm going to Disney Land!!! What's going on here? Did I win something? WOOT!!! Death to all donuts!!!

  2. You guys travel safely and we'll see you soon! There had better be some quality schmoozing time between the DFG and TSE clans.

  3. YES I Totally won this!! Emperor's Codex all in this MUTHA...wait.. I didn't win? pffft re-count rigged!!!! That Evil panda is paying off all the judges!!!! =P

    Congrats Panda...... until next time...

    Great contest as usual and I'll see you all at Adepticon!!!

  4. This sounds like a great contest!

  5. You didn't mention Painting Sanctuary :P But on the other hand congrats to panda.

  6. Here is my email ( ) so I can give you my actual address as I don;t want to just throw it out there for anyone to have. There could be donuts watching....

  7. We just got to the Westin, after registration, we will likely hit Tilted Kilt for drinks and eye candy!

  8. I'm trying to put together an Operation Killzone Team and or an Inquisitors Retinue. As such I would love to get my hands on:

    Vampire Counts Cairn Wraith and the Winged Vampire Lord

    Together they come to $35.50. If I have to get an actually troop box how about Empire Flagellant Warband as they would be fun to convert over to 40k as well. Let me know via email at and I will also give my address via email. Cheers for the contest and killer swag.

  9. That's fine, man, I will email you sometime during the con to work out the details. Are you here??

  10. Regretfully I could not make the tournament as I am saving up to go on a trip to Vietnam. Hope you and the crew are having a blast. Wish I was there.

  11. Damn it, Panda! Hahaha!
    In all seriousness, congratumalations, my HOT Pandaren friend. Shoot me a line on the e-mail thingy, just cause?
