Warhammer 40k 9th Edition Top ITC Tournament Lists October 2021

by | Nov 10, 2021

Blood of Kittens attempts to provide continuous coverage of ITC events, in posts showcasing the Top 3 Warhammer 40k 9th edition army lists from the largest events. This particular post chronicles the largest events of October 2021.

9th edition is a land of changes, so with every new month comes new codexes, FAQs, and rules. Whenever you look at an army list keep in mind how quickly the game can change. In other words, a legal army today may become illegal tomorrow, along with events using special rules and/or restrictions.  

October 2021 saw Games Workshop realize things are not right, but also might have missed the potential Grey Knights menace around the corner.
