Is the Infestation Back?: Warhammer 40k Tournament Results

by | Aug 29, 2022

Last weekend had 11 large events with at least 28 players and 5 rounds. The Meta honeymoon might be over, as Tyranids for the last two weeks in a row have dominated. These doesn’t mean we are back to the Warhammer 40k meta dark ages, but it does mean we might get the most competitive players coalescing around Tyranids again. In addition, depending on how you look at it, if the reviews of the Chaos Daemon codex are to be believed they won’t really shake up the meta either.

The almost complete disappearance of the T’au Empire and Sisters of Battle over the last few weeks, is also a very strange development considering the power combinations both possess. Still, the coming  week will be big test for the Warhammer 40k Meta as we get the Nova Open and tons of other events over the long American holiday weekend. We shall see if Tyranid resurgence is really real or is it just players remembering that the faction had a lot more going on even with the serious nerfs from the early summer.
