30th – 31st July  2016

Warhammer World, Nottingham

Throne of Skulls is a weekend of fun gaming for players of any level of experience. You could be a dyed in the wool veteran with a score of campaigns under your belt or a brand new hobbyist and you will still have a great time.

At Throne of Skulls we reward sportsmanship, good conduct and a friendly attitude over victory, so it’s perfect for anyone who wants a relaxing weekend of enjoyable games.

Now of course you are tempted to go, the only real question is what side will you choose?

In the distant past of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the Emperor’s most favoured son led a war of terrible betrayal against his father. On the brink of conquering the Galaxy and raising humanity into an enlightened age of peace and prosperity, the rebellion drowned the cosmos in blood and treachery. So terrible and far-reaching were the consequences that since then humanity  has laboured under the burden of constant war and the threat of extinction. 

During this weekend, we will be playing games set at the time of this galactic war. You must ally yourself with either the Emperor or the Warmaster Horus as you choose the destiny for not only yourself, but the entire galaxy! Gods will walk the battlefield, the Space Marine Legions will battle against former allies and through it all, the ever present laughter of the Dark Gods of Chaos will never be far away…
