Throne of Skulls: Escalation

The Aegis Defence Line crumpled beneath the weight of alien dead. The Orks had expended thousands of Grots and Boyz to create a small hole in the Imperial lines and as they pushed through the broken gap in the wall, men and women died bloodily to keep the ravening aliens at bay. As these brave troopers were torn apart, reinforcements arrived. Baron Augustus led his surviving Knightly Household in a charge, hurling the aliens back and sending tens of hundreds to oblivion.A roar went up from the dying xenos as they were massacred by the Imperial Knights. Their bellows were soon answered by a horde of clanking, smoke belching monstrosities, unerringly making their way to the Knights in a lumbering charge.

The war for Ruinatia was far from over.


This weekend focusses on playing some ‘big’ games of Warhammer 40,000. 3,000 Points is our chosen game size so we are expecting to see some truly epic engagements over incredible terrain here at Warhammer World. If you have always wanted to deploy a whole Battle Company of Space Marines, or felt like fielding a grand alliance of chaos daemons – now is your chance!

Throne of Skulls

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.
