Warhammer 40,000 Campaign Weekend: The Tenebris System

A Campaign Weekend at Warhammer World is a unique experience like no other. Each game you play is set in the rich narrative of the Warhammer 40,000 universe allowing players to embrace the lore and immerse themselves in a vivid story. What’s more, the outcome of your games shapes the tale being told, so your actions on the battlefield have a direct impact on where the campaign goes. If you want to play fun games of Warhammer 40,000, but forge a narrative with your army and fight for your faction in the Dark Imperium, then a Campaign Weekend is a one-of-a-kind experience not to be missed.

This event is the first of a new venture for Warhammer 40,000 campaigns at Warhammer World. Set in our brand new setting The Tenebris System, this is part one of a long-term campaign setting we plan to explore. This means the events that take place during the weekend will shape the future of Tenebris and have a direct impact on the campaigns that follow. The details of the Tenebris system and how the tale begins can be found in the event pack.


Players will be split into three alliances for the weekend – Imperium, Chaos and Invaders. This is determined by the ticket you purchase. Each alliance has certain requirements for which army and units you may use. You can find more information in the Tenebris System event pack, so familiarise yourself with these requirements before purchasing your ticket.

This means that you may use Faction-appropriate Index datasheets that might not appear in your Codex (such as Chaplain on Bike).

Other activities: Painting competitions and free entry to the Warhammer World miniatures exhibition.


Playing exciting, atmospheric games with fully painted miniatures is a big part of our events at Warhammer World. Therefore all miniatures in your collection must be 100% Games Workshop miniatures and be fully assembled, painted and based. Each model must fully represent what you have presented on your army roster (including all weapons and equipment).

Furthermore, you need to contact us to let us know about any conversions or proxies you are planning on using, and provide us with photos of the models in question where possible. Don’t worry, we fully appreciate awesome hobby skills and cool models, but we just want to make sure everything is super clear for your opponent and no confusion can arise during games.

We will politely ask you to remove any models that don’t meet these above standards to protect everyone’s experience. If you would like more information on Warhammer World’s model requirements then read our guide here: https://warhammerworld.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/Model-Requirements.pdf



You will have access to Warhammer World’s available general facilities and services, and tickets for the Exhibition Centre come free with your event ticket.

You need to arrange your own travel and accommodation if required.
