We’re playing catch-up so let’s take a look at who’s winning, losing and this week’s top championship list in 40K – brought to you by BCP.

We’re back with Best Coast Pairings to showcase the top list of the week for 40k. While the Tournament Scene has taken a hit due to the pandemic there are events happening. So, while the data set might be smaller than before (for now), we still wanted to bring these results to you. We still think folks should take all the recommended safety precautions if you are playing at an events – but if you’re going to play, you might as well have an idea about the current meta of 40k.

With all that said, let’s get to the results.

**This is the second list report this week because we are getting caught-up from last week.

 

From BCP:

Imperium, Aeldar, or Chaos is basically a unifying key between multiple factions from several codexes. So in the imperium example it’s like IG allied with space marines or space marines with knights. For chaos it would be demons allied with chaos marines. Any army not using a “pure” single faction army would fall into the master categories.
