Orks Start to Make Their Move: Warhammer 40k Tournament Results

by | May 13, 2024

Over the past weekend, 8 large Warhammer 40K events took place, with a minimum of 26 players participating in each event. The process of determining the top three players is based on their win records and total battle points, rather than the strength of their schedule. Throughout the weekend, a total of 24 Warhammer 40K 10th edition lists were featured, representing 19 distinct factions. Necrons held on for another week at the top, but it looks like Orks are making a move towards the top with two consecutive weekends of good results. With super large events only a few weeks away, we will have to see if the Bully Boys can climb the Monolith.

One of the unsung meta stories over the last month or so is the slow return of Genestealer Cults to the meta. They are not grabbing first places but are at least becoming playable. On the other side, we are seeing Custodes disappear from the meta with their seemingly very underwhelming new book.
