Event description


The Throne of Skulls: Maelstrom - MMXVIII is a 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 Throne of Skulls champion. Only a player with a good attitude, clever gaming skills and a decent looking army will raise the trophy. 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.

Tried and tested tactics must be revised, or whole new routes to victory found. Units that seemed, at first glance, to lack the utility you desired suddenly come into their own as their abilities on the tabletop are proved invaluable.

Event Essentials

Date: 30th-31st March 2019.

System: Warhammer 40,000 Matched Play.

Army Size: 1,750 points.

Scenarios: Maelstrom of War from Chapter Approved: 2018 Edition.

Number of games: Five.

Army Selection: Battle Forged army with a maximum of three detachments. Excluding Troops and Dedicated Transports, each datasheet can be included a maximum of three times in your army.

Publications in use: All current and in-print Warhammer 40,000 Index books, Codexes, Campaign books, FAQs, Errata and Beta Rules from Games Workshop and Forge World (including both the Forge World Adeptus Custodes Beta rules and Beta Adepta Sororitas Codex), 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.

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

Model Requirements

Playing exciting, atmospheric games with painted miniatures is a big part of our events at Warhammer World. With this in mind, all miniatures in your collection must be 100% Citadel or Forge World miniatures, and be fully assembled, painted and based. Each model must completely and accurately represent its entry on your army roster (including all weapons and equipment).

If you have painted your models in a specific way, we expect you to use the rules relevant to that scheme. For example, if you have painted your models as Salamanders, your army must have the Salamanders keyword. If you have created your own unique colour scheme, then you may give them any keyword that you wish.

If you have used different keywords between Detachments, there must be a clear visual difference between each Detachment. For example, if you have a Tyranid army with Detachments from both Hive Fleet Kraken and Kronos, the models in each Detachment must be clearly distinguishable from one to another such as a different coloured carapace. If you are unsure whether something is clearly distinguishable, contact us via the details at the end of this pack.

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

To protect everyone’s experience, we will politely ask you to remove any models that don’t meet these standards. If you would like more information on Warhammer World’s model requirements then read our guide or contact us via the details at the end of this pack: 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.
