AoS Meta Stats (w/e 19th June 2022)

Here are the AoS Meta Stats for all the Grand Tournaments that have taken place between Monday 13th June and Sunday 19th 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 3 Grand Tournaments last week, a quiet week! That being said, one of them was the awesome UK tSports Champions, which our very own Declan was invited to take part in. You can read up on his prep here.

Maggotkin of Nurgle top the charts this week in a very small data set. With a win rate of 66.0% Followed closely by Cities of Sigmar with a win rate of 58.6%. Seraphon, Fyreslayers and Soulblight Gravelords all struggling to make that magical 45% mark with Soulblight Gravelords being the only faction below 40%.


Subfaction Stats

Only Seraphon/Thunder Lizard and Maggotkin of Nurgle/Drowned Men made the requirement for this table (min 5 armies represented). Thunder Lizard managed a win rate of 43% while Drowned Men achieved 72.5%……

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.

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.

Gloomspite Gitz24.0%501

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 Trouble at Mill

Leodis Games – Trouble at Mill took place in Farsley, UK on 14th and 15th May. This was a 1500 point tournament as opposed to the usual 2,000. It involved 14 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 – Jake Helm

Jake won all five games over the weekend. Along the way he beat Fyreslayers/Greyfyrd in round 1, Fyreslayers/Greyfyrd in round 2, Disciples of Tzeentch/Hosts Duplicitous in round 3, Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 4 and Maggotkin of Nurgle/Drowned men in Round 5.

TOTAL POINTS: (1500/2000)

Danny: So it’s looking like Nurgle are pretty good huh? Although props to Jake for avoiding flies and running with the adorable Beasts of Nurgle pack instead. Spoilpox also doesn’t see a huge amount of play as he’s more a buff piece for plaguebearers – but why wouldn’t you want to run a hero whose main attack is called ‘disgusting sneeze’? Again, high pressure, high wound, highly durable that plays the objective super well. Will the forthcoming books have tools to dethrone the multiple rampant nurgle lists? Time will shortly tell!


2nd Place – Simon Burdett

Simon managed four wins over the two days losing only against 1st placed Jake in round 5. Along the way they beat Stormcast Eternals/Hallowed Knights in round 1, Gloomspite Gitz in round 2, Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 3 and Disciples of Tzeentch/Hosts Duplicitous in round 4.

*Hunters of the Heartlands
**Battle Regiment

Total: 1500 / 2000

Allies: 0 / 400

Drops: 5

Danny: Nurgle good-stuff – some flies, some beasts, nurglings, and a big stinker in Drowned Men for setting up a winning position turn 1. While we’re repeatedly doing Nurgle – allow me to speculate – new Nighthaunt may be able to outswarm and re-position from Nurgle pinning/control plays – could definitely be a counter to their recent dominance! Not long to wait and find out.


3rd Place – Michael Bywood

Michael also finished the weekend with one loss and four wins. His path saw him beat Fyreslayers/Greyfyrd in round 1, then lose to Disciples of Tzeentch/Hosts Duplicitous in round 2. In round 3 he beat Kruleboyz/Big Yellers, followed by Stormcast Eternals/Hallowed Knights in round 4 and Stormcast Eternals/Hammers of Sigmar in round 5.

Total: 1495 / 1500
Reinforced Units: 0 / 3
Allies: 0 / 300
Wounds: 61
Drops: 6

Danny: Lumineth are the army everyone loves to hate – but they’re not actually showing up on podiums that much these days, often because if you can tank their initial Sentinel hell-fire, you can usually outscore and whittle them down. But sometimes, someone decides to flex and run no Sentinels, no foxes, no wardens, and go full rock’n’roll with 3 mountain cows and supporting Stoneguard/mages for full on synergy and literal hammers everywhere. Big congrats for going 4-1 with a list I’ve never seen before – but it makes sense, those hammer-cows can be a nightmare to shift and with access to rend 2, plus one nasty ranged attack each, when they hit, you really feel it.


Wildcard – George Elton

George won three games and lost two, ending his weekend in a very respectful 4th. Along the way he lost to 2nd placed Michael and his Nurgle in round1, then lost to 1st place Jake and his Nurgle in round 2. After that being sick of fighting Nurgle no doubt, he went on to beat Maggotkin of Nurgle/Blessed Sons in round 3, Flesh-eater Courts/Blisterskin in round 4 and Disciples of Tzeentch/Hosts Duplicitous in round 5.

Army Faction: Fyreslayers

Grimwrath Berzerker
– Artefacts of Power: Draught of Magmalt Ale

*Hunters of the Heartlands
**Command Entourage

TOTAL POINTS: 1475/2000

Danny: Fyreslayers are still one of the new-book-underdogs, but in past weeks we’ve seen them encroaching on the podium – which hopefully suggests it’s just a tricky book with a higher skill floor than we imagined. This list trades the usual massive blobs of Hearthguard for more of the ‘smaller’ bezerkers to get more bodies on the board, and pops an interesting tech piece and a 3rd flavour of bezerker into the mix, in the form of a Grimwrath with Draught of Magmalt ale. Grimwraths pick an Oath (each one gives a variety of buffs) at the start of the game, which allows for a bit of reactivity – and Magmalt Ale is a once per game ‘double attacks’ suggesting George was using this little dwarf-that-could as a guided missile. Nice play!
