Games Workshop Warhammer Fest 2022 Preview

Warhammer Fest

As with last year, there’ll be four full days of online reveals, each with a different theme. But Warhammer Fest has traditionally been an in-person event – and we’ll be back in the flesh this year, with a huge Horus Heresy open day on the final day at Warhammer World.

The action kicks off on the 4th of May, with a day dedicated to Warhammer 40,000 – including more than a few unexpected surprises. Warhammer Age of Sigmar gets the treatment on the 5th of May, with new units, new battletomes, and new characters. Then the 6th of May is skirmish day – a treat for fans of more than a few Warhammer game systems.

It’s good to see both AoS and 40k getting their own days because hopefully, this means tons of reveals! Then with all the new Necromunda stuff we just saw, it makes sense the box games will share a day. Who knows, maybe that just means there is, even more, 40k and AoS stuff on the way.

We’ve seen tons of rumors for all the games, but maybe the video will tell us a little more.

Free 40k Points & Big Changes Another New Chapter Approved

Chapter Approved

The biggest change for the coming season is the way that Command points work. Armies will start each game with around half as many points as before, so you’ll have to be more cunning with how you use them – it’s far riskier to spend all your CP on a devastating turn one combo. 

However, you’ll also gain extra CP with each battle round, so it’ll be easier to react to your opponent’s dastardly schemes in later turns as the game progresses.

Hopefully, this is a really interesting change as it seems like, it will cut down on the alpha strike lists, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Chapter Approved 2

The book includes secondary objectives for each army in the game, which have been rewritten and balanced against each other. Some are now harder to score, some are easier – and some are completely new. There are even bespoke secondary objectives for armies whose new codexes aren’t out yet, such as Chaos Daemons and Astra Militarum.

This is a good addition because it will may let the non-codex armies actually be competitive, which we are sure a lot of players can appreciate!

Chapter Approved 3

That’s because points updates will be free as of this new season of Warhammer 40,000! You’ll be able to get them in Warhammer 40,000: The App and right here on the Warhammer Community website.

You know we’re never going to complain about free points!
