In May, during Warhammer Fest 2022, Games Workshop announced that some changes would be made to its dark sci-fi miniatures game, Warhammer 40k. Instead of having updated point values for all the different units in the game locked behind the latest mission book, the updates would be available for free to all players. If you want to stay competitive in equal matches, there’s no need to get the latest mission book. This Warhammer 40k the free points update is now live.
What’s in the Warhammer 40k Free point update?
New Warhammer 40k free points update went live via official Warhammer Community Publish. The points update document, called Munitorium Field Manual 2022 MkII, contains major updates for every playable army in Warhammer 40k. In even play, the point values of these units replace all previous printing. Keep in mind that this new season of Warhammer 40k, Warzone Nephilim, also includes major changes to the way Command Points are earned. There also appear to be changes to the secondary objectives, as seen in the planned changes for Chaos Space Marines.
If for any reason you want a physical version of the Warhammer 40k free points update, Games Workshop has you covered. The message states that a printed version of the new Munitorium Field Manual will be available in White Dwarf 479.
What does the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar Updating points looks like ?
Games Workshop not only announced a Warhammer 40k free points update; they did a similar update for their high-fantasy miniatures game Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. In a whole separate post, Games Workshop has announced new points updates for the pitched battle game ahead of the release of their new General’s Handbook. Much like its distant counterpart, these point changes affect every army in Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and supersede any previously written material. This update is available for free download now.
Additionally, a new battle scroll is live from Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. This rules update includes substantial changes to some abilities. This includes adjustments to the Draconic Onslaught ability used by the Stormcast Eternals and Stormdrake Guard, as well as point rebalancing for various Chaos armies. This Battlescroll is free to download now.
