Warhammer 40,000 Throne of Skulls: There is only War


Welcome to the upcoming Throne of Skulls: There is only War Matched Play event for Warhammer 40,000 held in Warhammer World.

Throne of Skulls is a casual gaming event, where sportsmanship and well presented armies go hand in hand with your ability as a general on the battlefield to crown the champion of the event. Only a player with a good attitude, clever gaming skills and a decent looking army will raise the trophy, so if playing games against like-minded, enthusiastic players with fully painted armies is something you aspire towards, or have always dreamed of, then come on down and experience a weekend like no other.


There is only War

Warhammer 40,000 is a fast paced game with many different ways to play. For this weekend we will be using both Maelstrom of War and Eternal War to get a fantastic weekend of exciting games!

Event Essentials

System: Warhammer 40,000 Matched Play

Army Size: 100 Power Level Army.

Missions: Eternal War and Maelstrom of War.

Number of games: 5.

Army Selection: Battle Forged with a maximum of 3 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: Lunch is provided on both days.
