by | Apr 25, 2023

Last weekend, 11 large Warhammer 40,000 events took place, with at least 26 players competing in five rounds. A total of 33 lists were used, with 20 different factions represented.

As we enter the twilight of 9th edition, it will be interesting to see how many of the boogeymen of seasons past return, with Tyranids and Necrons so far looking pretty good with the balance changes so far. We will also have to see if more players migrate to Grey Knights with the nerfs to the other Space Marine factions taking effect.
