Well, Day 1 of Adepticon is down and it was a blast. Friday was the 40K Championships qualifying rounds. The final rounds happen Sunday.
Here are the top 16 players who qualified for Sunday. Of course 7 are Grey Knights players. Seems that this is the flavor of the year.

What is most impressive is not that 7 of the top 16 are Grey Knights. Not too hard to win with them. Butthat a Necron player is first, two Ork players are in the top 10, and a Chaos Daemon player is FIFTH!
Winning with Chaos Daemons shows real skill. Kudos to those players who did not jump on the Grey Knight band wagon.
