10th Edition Warhammer 40k Munitorium Field Manual 1.8 Points Changes Update

Maybe just as important as the points, GW said they will now only be doing 40k Balance Dataslate updates every other quarter (originally, they said every quarter), and points change every quarter. This means we won’t see the next Dataslate until Q3 of 2024, but the points changes should really shake the game up for now!

They say it isn’t a strict schedule, but if you were hoping for changes beyond points for your army, you need to wait until Q3. However, there are some pretty big points that change, and the new codexes (Orks and Custodes) have some huge changes.

Let’s start with the winners and losers (if an army isn’t on there, they don’t change) and then get into the specifics.

Buffed Armies

  • Adeptus Custodes: They basically received a decrease in points for almost every single unit in the codex.
  • Adeptus Mechanicus: They received decreases for about eight units and no increases.
  • Chaos Space Marines: The Dataslate hit them pretty hard, but this time, they exclusively received points drops.
  • Dark Angels: Got four point decreases this time around
  • Genestealer Cults: Some key units go down in points.
  • Leagues of Votann: Very small decreases to Warriors and Uthar.
  • Orks: Like Custodes, they received huge point decreases across the board, with a couple of increases, but the decreases far outweigh them.
  • Space Marines: They get a bunch of decreases and a few increases, but the changes should help.
  • Space Wolves: They received two decreases.
  • Thousand Sons: They get seven decreases to units, but two enhancements go up in points.
  • Tyranids: Get deductions across the board, but Gargoyles are going up in points again.
  • World Eaters: The Dataslate changes really hit them hard, but they are getting a pretty big point buff this time.

NERFED Armies

  • Adepta Sororitas: This is almost not a NERF, as they get four decreases, but the five points increases outweigh that
  • Aeldari: They get some decreases as well, but a lot of popular units are getting increased.
  • Agents of the Imperium: The agents get only point increases this time.
  • Astra Militarum: It’s hard to call this a straight-up NERF, but a lot of very popular units are increasing while less-used units are decreasing.
  • Black Templars: They are getting six increases and no decreases. So, it’s a pretty straightforward NERF.
  • Blood Angels: Like the Astra Militarum, they are getting key NERFS and a couple of units cheaper to increase their viability.
  • Grey Knights: Their increases outweigh their decreases, at least to us.
  • Necrons: Some units get decreased, but the majority are getting big increases.

These are the latest 10th Edition Warhammer 40k Munitorum Field Manual points changes that are legal for play right now!

Adepta Sororitas Point Changes

Crusaders have been taken in units of two for a long time for easy objectives, so it is no surprise to see the change. Then, Flagellants, the Triumph, Assassins, and the Blade all get NERFS.

However, they are offset by decreases in units that don’t get used too much, but we wish they would do something more than just decrease the points of Sacresants once again. They need more power or durability.

Old Points

Adeptus Custodes Points Updates

Well, their codex points were wild, so it’s good to see them get decreases across the board.

Old Index Points

Adeptus Mechanicus Points

Points costs across the Adeptus Mechanicus have dropped – but the Warhammer Studio are also testing a selection of rules changes to launch with the next Balance Dataslate that should tune up the Machine Cult’s legions and give them a shot in the cybernetic arm.

They haven’t been doing very well this edition, so it’s nice to see some buffs. GW also said they might make changes in the Dataslate next quarter to give them more power. Notably, Dunecrawlers and Kastelans go down 20 points per model.

Old Points

Aeldari Points Update

They got some increases in units that are doing really well, and a decrease in units most people aren’t taking.

Old Points

Agents of The Imperium

All of these agents units have been super useful for all Imperial armies, so the changes are not a huge surprise.

Old Points

Astra Militarum Points

It’s hard to call this a straight-up NERF, but a lot of very popular units are increasing while less-used units are decreasing.

Old Points

Black Templars Points Updates

This is their second change in a row, and it hit the army with only NERFS.

Old Points

Blood Angels Points

They are getting key NERFS and a couple of units cheaper to increase their viability.

Old Points

Chaos Daemons Points

Unchanged.

Chaos Knights Points

Unchanged.

Chaos Space Marines Points

This is the first buff for them in a while and makes sense with how their win rate dropped.

Old Points

Dark Angels Points

Terminators get a lot cheaper, and so does the Lion (50 points)!

Old Points

10th Edition 40k Dataslate Death Guard Points

One small change to Hellbrutes this time, nothing too wild.

Warhammer 40k: All The Munitorum Field Manual Points Changes (29)

Old Points

Deathwatch Points

Unchanged.

Drukhari Points

Unchanged.

Genestealer Cults Points

The units that were decreased aren’t on many top lists, so this should help them make more lists.

Old Points

Grey Knights Points Changes For 10th Edition 40k

The characters went up along with the Dreadknight, but the more basic squads went down. This means GW wants more units in those armies and fewer heroes.

Old Points

Imperial Knights Points

Unchanged.

Leagues of Votann Points

Warriors and Uthar go down in points, so get those foot sloggers out of the box and get them back on the field!

Old Points

Necrons Points

Among the most important changes are points adjustments to slow the inexorable advance of the Necrons. Combos frequently appearing in competitive play have been tuned, with increases for C’tan Shards, several varieties of Cryptek – including Illuminor Szeras himself – and Immortals. Units which have seen less play are enjoying slight discounts, particularly those common to Detachments outside of the Hypercrypt Legion and Canoptek Court.

The units that are dominating went up pretty decently in points, and their win rate should be adjusted.

Old Points

10th Edition 40k Orks Points

It looks like the age of the Greenskins might be upon us! They got some pretty wild decreases, but the poor Stompa still sits at 800 points…

Old Points

Space Marines Points

Space Marines have seen a number of internal balance changes, with more tweaks to specific Chapters.

They mainly get decreases, and GW really likes to keep them at the 50ish % win rate, so this should keep them around there.

Old Points

Space Wolves Points

They have been struggling, but these aren’t huge changes, but they might be enough to lift them up.

Old Points

Tau Points

Unchanged.

Thousand Sons Points

A lot of units underperforming are getting big decreases. Only the enhancements go up, but they have been quite strong, so it makes sense.

Old Points

Tyranids Points

Gargoyles were taken in pretty much every list, so it makes sense to see them go up in points. Then, there have been a lot of underperforming units, so it makes sense they get a decrease.

Old Points

World Eaters Points

They were hit super hard with the last Dataslate. This time, Jakhals, Terminators, and Berzerkers all go down in points. Jakhals were in almost every list, but other than that, non of the decreased units saw almost any play at all. Let’s hope this moves them back into the meta.

Old Points

In conclusion, the latest 10th Edition Warhammer 40k Munitorum Field Manual points updates and changes have brought a significant shift in the game’s balance. Many armies have received buffs, while others have been NERFed.

Again, it’s also worth noting that GW will now only be doing 40k Balance Dataslate updates every other quarter, which means we won’t see the next Dataslate until Q3 of 2024. However, the points changes for now should really shake up the game.
