New Warhammer 40,000 Rules and our events in 2014

Well met Warhammer 40,000 warriors.

A brand new edition of the rules has arrived and many of you may be wondering what this means for the events you are planning to attend.

The Events Team have been hard at work deciding what to do (it’s a tough old life…) and so we have made the following decisions for each of our Warhammer 40,000 events for 2014.

Please note: We are confident that any army you could take before is still usable at our events. If you are worried that something we have written here or in the new rulebook contradicts this please contact us and we will discuss it with you. We want any army you could use before to be available after this update – so don’t worry – you will still be able to use it!

  • Okay folks, this is where it gets complicated. Pay attention now!
  • The points values for each team shall remain the same as listed in the Events Pack.
  • The final game will follow the Unbound Rules set for army selection from page 117 of the rulebook with the following tweaks:

–  You must adhere to the Force Organisation Chart laid down in the Events Pack.

–  You may also take Imperial Knights.

– The Allies Matrix is NOT in use.

– For the sake of clarity, treat the army as one Unbound army.

This is to try and make sure that everyone who already had an army prepared for the large game gets to use it, and anyone who does not has some structure and knows what to expect.


Well everyone that’s all for now – as far as 2015 goes, well – we shall be paying close attention to 2014 to make sure our events get even better. Sign up for the Warhammer World Newsletter and be the first to know about any changes that are made in the new year.

See you soon,

The Warhammer World Events Team
