Wild Meta Swings Continue: Warhammer 40k Tournament Results

by | Mar 5, 2023

Last weekend, nine large Warhammer 40K events took place, with at least 26 players competing in five rounds. A total of 27 lists were used, with 16 different factions represented. The wild Arks of Omens meta continues, as again no one faction can pull away to dominate the game. Every week so far has seen another faction rise or return to the top. This time, the Genestealer Cults returned and made some surprise wins, along with the Drukhari out of nowhere!

Parity is the name of the game for the current meta, which is fantastic, but it will be interesting to see if top players will break out the Imperial Guard in the coming weeks as the Karskin go unscathed by Games Workshop. We are also still weeks away from any adjustments that GW might make, but at this point, it looks like no army deserves the big nerf bat, and only a few factions needing some help.
