Top Three 40k Lists for the North and South GT 2023 (10th Edition)

This is the top three 40k lists for the North and South GT that took place in Austalia on the 29th and 30th of July. It involved 60 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5-game tournament.

As we head into 10th edition and beyond we wanted to start providing a source for lists that are being used successfully in tournaments around the world. The size of the 40k community and the sheer number of events means we won’t be commenting.

However, if you think you have what it takes to comment on 40k lists, we want to hear from you! Simply reach out to Peter on the Woehammer Discord.

Before I jump into the Top Three Lists, 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.

If you like what we’re doing, why not join our Patreon and help keep it going?

Also if there’s a one day or two day tournament you’d like us to cover drop us a comment on this post and we’ll have a look at it for you.

Final Tournament Placings

Top Three 40k Lists for the Feast of Blades – April GT

This is the top three 40k lists for the Feast of Blades that took place in the Netherlands on the 15th and 16th of April. It involved 32 players vying to be crowned champion in a 5-game tournament.

As we head into 10th edition and beyond we wanted to start providing a source for lists that are being used successfully in tournaments around the world. The size of the 40k community and the sheer number of events means we won’t be commenting, at least for now, but simply providing a resource of formatted lists you can search.

Before I jump into the Top Three Lists, 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.
