AoS Meta Stats (w/e 12th June 2022)

On Reddit Warhammer 40k has the Meta Mondays posted by the brilliant u/JCMS85 on r/WarhammerCompetitive. So why can’t we have one for AoS? Well we can….

Here are the stats for all the Grand Tournaments that have taken place between Monday 6th June and Sunday 12th June 2022. These are all the GT’s that I can locate on or BestCoastPairing, if you know of any others please send me a link and I’ll add them.

There was a total of 10 Grand Tournaments last week, however only 9 had data available to analyse. Valleycon 2022 was a 26 player tournament but no lists were available at the time of publishing these stats.

Gloomspite Gitz30.0%61.05%01

Despite Nighthaunt and Daughters of Khaine being released now for a couple of weeks, we still see Seraphon, Legion of the First Prince and Maggotkin of Nurgle topping the win rates. On top of that Seraphon managed to grab three 5-0 results this week.

As a rough guide factions should have win rates of between 45-55% to ensure the game is roughly balance (true balance being impossible). The above shows that 7 factions have exceeded this band (including the new Daughters of Khaine) with Seraphon and Legion of the First Prince have exceeded the 60% win rate barrier. There are also seven factions below this ideal range, including one of the new battletomes for 3rd Edition (Fyreslayers). While Stormcast Eternals have a win rate of 45% we have to bear in mind that this is the most popular faction and is often the ones new players use when first playing Age of Sigmar, so the range of skill of the players inside this faction will vary widely, while many of the other faction will have a dedicated fan base or have tournament players looking for a faction that provides them the best chance at good results.

The faction stats are pretty much replicated above with Lumineth Realm-Lords/Zaitrec joining the +60% club this week. Meanwhile despite Anthony Trentanelli’s heroics with Skaven recently (claiming two GT’s and going 4-1 this week) they still sit below 45% with a miserable 37.9% win rate. Will their new battletome and the Generals Handbook see a change in this though? A new tome can’t come soon enough for Gloomspite Gitz and Ossiarch Bonereapers….

Top Three AoS Lists from the Haven AoS 2 Day GT

Haven GT took place in Washington, USA on 14th and 15th May. It involved 28 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5 game tournament.

Before I jump into the Top Three, I wanted to remind everyone of our friendly Discord server where you can join in the conversation with the Woehammer crew and suggest articles or series for the website.

1st Place – Daytond Obre

Daytond won all five games over the weekend. Along the way they beat Flesh-eater Courts/Blisterskin in round 1, Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 2, Soulblight Gravelords/Vyrkos Dynasty in round 3, Ironjawz/Bloodtoofs in round 4 and Ironjawz/Bloodtoofs in Round 5.

Danny: Sneaking in just ahead of the new book, we have a good old fashioned Morathi and the Bow Sneks list taking a big win – something DoK struggle with recently in the meta, so this still deserves props. Morathi can make the bow-sneks shoot twice (well, once in the hero phase) – of course it can also make a nice big spear-snek blob fight in the hero phase too. Both are pretty darn clutch – and it’s not going away with the new book. Check out our Tome review to see our feelings on how this list will do from now on!


2nd Place – Alexander Gonzalez

Alexander managed four wins over the two days and drawing a fifth. Along the way they beat Gloomspite Gitz in round 1, Legion of the First Prince in round 2, drew against Flesh-eater Courts/Blisterskin in round 3, then beat Soulblight Gravelords/Vyrkos Dynasty in round 4 and Ironjawz/Bloodtoofs in round 5.

Danny: Soulblight are just so well placed to adapt to the meta, with a wonderfully deep and internally balanced book. The Vyrkos dynasty allows summonable units near to a vampire hero to get +1 to wound, which adds up, and brings the double Mortarch combo which has been increasingly popular recently due its sheer amount of utility, casting prowess and mid-level damage. Another popular pick is the Pack Alpha trait for a free CP per turn – never not useful!


3rd Place – Matt Beasley

Matt finished the weekend with one loss and four wins. His path saw him beat Beasts of Chaos/Gavespawn in round 1, then lose to 2nd placed Alexander in round 2. In round 3 he beat Ironjawz/Ironsunz, followed by Seraphon/Dracothion’s Tail in round 4 and Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 5.

TOTAL POINTS: 1975 / 2000
Reinforced Units: 0 / 4
Allies: 0 / 400
Wounds: 82
Drops: 3

Danny: It’s legion, with a Krondspine! That little incarnate that could is popping up all over the place these days! It’s nice to see a varied list of battleline units for filling subtly different roles – nice fast flesh hounds, slicer and dicier Bloodletters and tanky plaguebearers for objective play. Kairos is always a magic powerhouse and the increasingly popular Bloodthirster rounds out the combo by … being a bloodthirster. Means Kairos doesn’t have to get his feathery hands dirty!


Wildcard – Cody Quigley

Cody won three games and lost one and drew one, ending his weekend in a very respectful 4th. Along the way he beat Seraphon/Thunder Lizard in round 1, then Gloomspite Gitz/Glogg’s Megamob in round 2. This was followed by a draw against 2nd place Alexander in round 3 and a loss to Ironjawz/Bloodtoofs in round 4. In the last round he beat Beasts of Chaos/Gavespawn.

Danny: Bill Souza is an expert in taking off-meta lists and making them sing. That’s not something anyone can do, and Flesh Eater Courts especially don’t make life easy these days. But Terrorgheists ALWAYS have the option to spike a bunch of MWs and are highly mobile, and allying in Gorslav and his shambling zombie contingent means you can guarantee a bunch of them comes back even outside of SBGL – shoring up the objective play while the ‘Gheists fly around trying to eat stuff. Amazing (but not surprising, perhaps) result for The Special Souza.
