The far future is darker and grimmer than ever before! The 8th edition of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 tabletop miniature wargame has thus far been a major success. The new rules seem to have been embraced by grizzled veterans and recent conscripts alike, and the unprecedented rate at which Games Workshop continues to release each new Codex is giving players a renewed enthusiasm for their favorite armies. Tournaments are varied and plentiful. In short, Warhammer 40,000 is experiencing something of a renaissance. With that in mind, we wanted to give you, the AdeptiCon Team Tournament player, a brief preview of what you can expect from one of the world’s premier Warhammer 40,000 events.

Our team has drawn upon their own playtesting experience, observations from other tournaments, and feedback from veteran hobbyists to forge a new path forward for the Warhammer 40,000 Team Tournament. Teams will now be able to choose from five custom detachments, based on those found in the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. Our goal is to encourage players to build thematic armies that keep to the spirit and design philosophy of 8th edition while offering an enjoyable, team-based experience.

Here is a quick summary of what you will see in the Draft Composition Rules and Team Tournament Detachment options:

  • Each team member’s Detachment will consist of 1,000 points or less.
  • Same Detachment must be used throughout the tourney.
  • All Detachments must be Battle-forged
  • Forge World models are allowed.

ObSec applies if your Detachment shares the same faction and Lords of War are capped at 30 Power Level.

Chapter Approved will be released well beforehand and will be consulted along with any errata and FAQ changes made between now and when the tournament begins. Some players are already commenting that detachments layouts are too restrictive and do not reflect those found in the rulebook. Again, the pdf of the tournament rules and team composition is available now.

UPDATE: November 3rd will be the date that the Adepticon team is shooting for to get us a full Schedule Preview. Registration will open November 17th at 8 PM CST, and closes on February 26th at 5 PM CST.

Let us know in the comments below if you agree with the rules as they are. If not, why? What rules or detachment structures were hoping to see?
