What are we aiming to provide with this event?

The past three years has been tough for everyone regarding lockdowns, isolations and mental health strains, we at Wooden Spoon Wargaming are here to expand people’s gaming groups and try and provide a hobby positive experience through Warhammer 40000 events starting with our very first event, The Investigation of Starfall Harbour

Set across the planet of Starfall Harbour, the aim of the event will be for each player to take part in 3 differing games, across 3 different settings, meeting new people they haven’t played before and expanding the social aspect of the hobby

Battlefields will feature interesting aspects of terrain, pushing away from competitive setups repetitive bland board layouts

Army Composition

Army size 1750 points

Max Number of detachments 3

Battle Forged Yes

Painted to battle ready standard Yes

Table size 6-foot x 4 foot

This is not a competitive event, we are you to build your lists to reflect this, any questions, or queries regarding this please get in touch.

We are using the ‘Strike force format from the Warhammer 40000 rule book, restrictions can be found there with regard to mustering your army as well as balance data sheets and FAQ’s produced by Games Workshop


The venue ‘Unity Hall’ is a wonderful space which we have found and I believe is well suited for this event, within close proximity of Morley high-street and a Morrison super market
