Competitive Innovations in 10th: Silver Surfeit

A relatively quiet one this week, presumably because everyone was too busy hunting for eggs and feasting on chocolate, or whatever you get up to over Easter in the country of your preference. I assume it's nice. Four events this...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: The Meta Adepts pt.1

Big events all over the shop this week, with blockbusters in each of the US, UK and Europe. The metagame continues to shift week-to-week - Necrons are definitely stalwarts right now, but this week the T'au are on the...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: The Imperium Strikes Back pt.1

TheChirurgeon: Welcome back to another week of Competitive Innovations, where we recap the weekend’s GTs and Majors, talk about the matchups, and analyze the top lists. Normally you’d see James “One_Wing” Grover in this space talking about events, but...

Codex T’au Empire 10th Edition: The Goonhammer Review

The T’au Empire launches its Sixth Sphere Expansion into 10th Edition with a brand new Codex!  Battlesuits reign supreme with the new Retaliation Cadre, while the infantry and Devilfish thrive with Mont’Ka!  New forms of Kroot subspecies join their...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Chewing the Scenery pt.1

It's a particularly nefarious week out there. The Necrons, an entire culture built around emulating Starscream, re-assert their dominance after a mild wobble, and the World Eaters blast to some top finishes, shaking off whatever shackles the (fairly substantial)...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Dressed for Success pt.1

The twists and turns of the metagame continue unabated this week, as Necrons get marginally barged back into their tombs by a triumvirate of snappily-dressed factions. Whether it's glorious golden armour, a Nemesis Dreadknight or just a straight-up Gundam,...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Silver Tide pt.3

At this point I have to accept that I fully exist in a hell of my own creation. I'm writing this sitting at the judges desk at the Goonhammer Open, with round 1 in full swing, and Lowest of...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: Silver Tide pt.1

Welp, it's finally happened, this week we're going to three parts. That's because the past weekend was an absolutely astounding blowout of 40K, featuring ~1200 players participating in 16 GT+ events (around half of them majors) and that doesn't even account for...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: 24-Karat Carnage pt.1

The Adeptus Custodes are back in business this week, bringing joy to the hearts of anyone who loves gold and despair to anyone who hates playing against army-wide 4+ Invulnerable Saves. Please do not think too hard about whether...

Competitive Innovations in 10th: En Guard

We're going tall rather than wide this week - five events, but one of them is our first post-dataslate supermajor at Beachhead Brawl. The Imperium had the best of this one, with the Astra Militarum and Dark Angels putting...
