22nd – 23rd October
Throne of Skulls is a gaming event all about fun, friendly battles in a relaxed atmosphere. You’ll get to play some great games against other like-minded players in the unique atmosphere of the spectacular Warhammer World Event Hall.
No matter whether you’re a seasoned player or if this will be your first step into playing our games, the focus for this event is on camaraderie and playing in the spirit of the game; that is to say non-competitive and fair play are the order of the day.
The Realmgate wars continue to rage in the Mortal Realms. Many gods watch on, with a rare few even taking a direct hand in the battles. But whether these mighty figures wade through enemy lines or watch from crystal thrones, they all have one thing in common: Champions.
Every god in the realms favour some of their servants over others. Mighty Sigmar has the Celestant-Prime while the Chaos Gods have as many as their whims dictate, with fell Archaon presiding over all. There are no rules for how high in the esteem of their chosen deity a warrior can rise, or how far into the abyss they can fall, but one thing is true: victories in battle, and the slaying of enemy champions, are the greatest currencies with which to buy immortal favour.
This weekend you will bring great armies to the table, intent on achieving victory on the battlefield, whilst at the same time destroying enemy champions in order to further yourself in the eyes of your god.
As your champion’s favour waxes and wanes, they will be gifted by their gods with mighty powers and artefacts – all the better to lay waste to your enemies. Beware though, for even the gods of order brook no failure in their avatars, and there is a great price to pay should you falter.
