The First Towering 10th Events: Warhammer 40k Tournament Results

by | Jun 25, 2023

Last weekend, five large Warhammer 40K events took place, with at least 26 players competing in five rounds. A total of 15 lists were used, with 10 different factions represented. Well, we made it! 10th edition is here, and although most events were still using 9th edition rules, a few large events already dove right into the new edition. Imperial Knights started off strong right out the gate.

As everyone expected Aeldari to roll over everyone with Fate Dice and devastating wounds, it turns out that doesn’t matter when your opponent has an army you literally cannot hide from. Thanks to the Towering keyword, Knights seem to be the best alpha strike army in the game, and without anyone prepared for the new meta, they are taking advantage. We will have to keep track of whether this continues or if Games Workshop will address the demands for a FAQ hammer on the new edition.
