Throne of Skulls: Eternal War

buy ticket Button3rd – 4th September

Warhammer World, Nottingham

Throne of Skulls is designed for everyone to come and play, be you a battle-worn veteran of a thousand wars, or a new recruit taking your first steps into the hobby.  The focus at our events is on camaraderie and enjoyment, and we give prizes out based on sportsmanship and hobby prowess. In fact, you could win the famous Throne of Skulls trophy without winning a single game over the weekend; it’s all about displaying a great attitude to your opponents.

If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved in, we hope to see you there!


It is a dark and desperate age. The Imperium of Mankind stretches out across the stars, a galaxy spanning realm unlike any other. Humanity is beset by darkness and danger, surrounded by monstrous foes that seek nothing less than the Imperium’s utter an total destruction.

This is the age of unending war; a universe-wide conflict that threatens to engulf countless billions of souls in the blink of an eye. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of the thirsting Gods.

In this fun weekend-long event, play five great games of Warhammer 40,000, meet new players and enjoy everything Warhammer World has to offer as you totally indulge yourself in your hobby for a couple of days. We will be using the Eternal War missions from Warhammer 40,000: The Rules for the first time at a Throne of Skulls, with a few added twists, letting you enjoy the classic games with a new outlook.
