UTC Recap and Weekend Preview: June 1, 2023

Last month we announced the formation of the Unified Tournament Circuit, a new regional circuit for Warhammer 40k and Age of Sigmar which covers the area between Virginia and Newfoundland. In case you missed our announcement, you can find it here.

You can find the full calendar of UTC events here.

This past weekend was Memorial Day in the US and you’ll have to excuse people for having the audacity to enjoy beautiful weather and spend it outdoors instead of inside playing Warhammer. This weekend saw three UTC events – two 40k GTs at Ironweld in Wakefield and a 40k RTT in Brooklyn.


(Wakefield MA) – Ironweld is one of the biggest events in the New England Circuit, with 64-player GTs for Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40k.

Age of Sigmar

This 5-round, 57-player event has already been covered in detail over in this week’s Competitive Innovations in the Mortal Realms, where Anthony Lawrence’s Pretenders Host army beat out Samuel Gould’s Allherd to claim the top prize.

  • 1st – Anthony Lawrence (Wicked Dicey) – Pretenders Host
  • 2nd – Derrek Perham (Chromatic Dragon) – Legion of Blood (4-0-1): Double Ethereal big things with 10 Blood Knights, 50 Skeletons and a Corpse Cart as it’s core
  • 3rd – Nate Trentanelli (Tough Crowd) – Nighthaunt: A mad emerald host list that’s running 20 Craventhrone Guard and 30 Hexwraiths to just focus damage output against a few units at a time
  • 4th – Corey Begley (Wicked Dicey) – Nighthaunt: Another emerald host list that instead wants to teleport 50 Grimghast Reapers around with Awlrach to apply pressure

Warhammer 40k

Likewise, this 32-player, 5-round Grand Tournament was covered in today’s Competitive Innovations in 9th column – you can read more about that here. William York took first place with Astra Militarum, running a list packed with two Rogal Dorn Battle Tanks.

  • 1st – William York (AP Zero Tactics) – Astra Militarum: Two Dorns and deep striking Scions.
  • 2nd (Team Battle Brothers) – Pat McAneeny – Space Wolves Successors: Upgrades, Wulfen and Desolation Marines.
  • 3rd – Casey Glynn (Rsvmc) – Necrons: Angry Novokh with lots of Skorpekh and a Monolith.
  • 4th – Jaime Paris (ProTabletop) – Space Wolves Successors: Upgrades, Wulfen and Desolation Marines, also some scouts for that faintest hint of variety.
