Warhammer 40,000 Throne of Skulls Doubles

Warhammer 40,000 Throne of Skulls Doubles is a casual gaming event for a team of two. At this event the manner in which you play is just as important as the results of your games, therefore playing entertaining games with good cheer, sportsmanship and well presented armies is integral to the weekend. Teams are encouraged to embrace the relaxed atmosphere and play engaging games for all, so if this sounds like your way of playing, then this is the event for you.


Date: 10th-11th February 2018.
System: Warhammer 40,000 Matched Play.
Format: Doubles. You will play as a team of two throughout the weekend.
Army Size: 1,000 points per player for a total army size of 2,000 points.
Scenarios: Eternal War from Chapter Approved: 2017 Edition.
Number of games: Five.
Army Selection: Each player selects a separate Battle Forged army with a maximum of two detachments.
Publications in use: All current and in-print Warhammer 40,000 Index books and Codexes from Games Workshop and Forge World, unless their release falls on the weekend of the event. We expect you to use the most current datasheets for your models – e.g. those found in a Codex rather than an Index if a Codex is available for your army. This means that you may use Faction-appropriate Index datasheets that might not appear in your Codex (such as Chaplain on Bike).
Meals: A hot lunch is provided on both days.
Extra activities: Painting competitions, Saturday night entertainment and free entry to the Warhammer World 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.


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.
