40K Slow Grow January 2023

It's that time of year again.

We will be officially kicking off our 40k Slow Grow in Monday 16th January.

This year based on feedback and rules changes we'll be making a few tweaks to how we run.

Round 1 will run until the end of February. This is to give people more chance to get to grips with the rules.

For Round 1 we will be playing at 500 points and using the following extra rules:

We will the Patrol Detachment to build a force.

The only Stratagems that we will use is the Command Point reroll, warlord trait & relic strats.

The game will be played with no secondaries for scoring.

Round 2 will run through March at 1000 points.

We will only use the Strategems available in the core rules & 1 Secondary for scoring.

We will be using the Desperate Raid Mission.

Round 3 will run through April at 1500 points

At this point we will be playing on a full size board using all available strategies and 2 Secondaries for scoring.

Round 4 will run through May and be 2000 points. This will use the full rules for matched play games as set out in Chapter Approved.


Each month we will take the average of your top 3 scores and add them to your months painting score.

Games Win 3 points, Draw 1 point, Loss 0 points

500 points painted 3 points.

For the painting we will be running on an honesty system and asking you to post pictures of your painted force.


For this slow grow we will not be pairing you with specific opponents. Feedback from previous slow grows suggests this is a sticking point for many people taking part.

What do I need to take part?

To take part you will need a 500 point force, it's codex, Ark of Omens Chapter Approved.
