Upcoming balance changes: prepare to lead the hive!

The Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge battlefield is undergoing exciting changes! After analyzing the meta report, this month’s balance update focuses on changing the functionality of cards to promote deck diversity. Hive Fleet Leviathan will see the largest amount of changes, as the faction has been underperforming in general levels.

As always, we would like every Warlord to have a chance on the ladder, and we are working on ways to promote deck diversity. These changes ARE NOT YET LIVE at the time of posting, but you can check out the full list of upcoming balance changes below in preparation for the new season.


  • Uriel Ventris: Remove ability “Start with an extra card”

Sautekh Dynasty

  • Chronomancer: Change description to “When you reanimate a troop, give it Flank”, and increased Melee Attack from 4 to 5
  • Canoptek Plasmacyte: Change description to “Flying. When you deploy a troop with Frenzied, give it +2 Melee and +2 Ranged Attack” (instead of +1)
  • Ghost Ark: Increased Health from 8 to 9


  • Hemlock Wraithfighter: Lowered Blast from Spirit Stones ability from 5 to 3
  • Vengeful Wraithblade: Lowered Melee Attack from 6 to 5

Hive Fleet Leviathan

  • Alpha Warrior (Terror of Vardenghast’s talent): Updated description to “Your Warlord gains Flying and +2M this turn, plus an additional 1 for each friendly troop.”
  • Brood Progenitor (Tervigon’s talent): Lowered cost from 1 to 0
  • Apex Predator: Change description to “Give Invulnerable and +2 Ranged Attack to a friendly unit this turn”
  • Hardened Biology: Change description to “Give Armour 2 and +2 Health to a friendly troop”
  • Winged Tyrant: Change description to “Synapse. Flying. Rally: Your next Stratagem this turn costs 0.”

These changes aim to foster a more diverse and balanced meta, allowing more Warlords a chance to shine on the battlefield. Remember that this update is not yet live at the time of posting, and will be coming to Warhammer 40,000: Warpforge later this week. Prepare for the upcoming challenge! Good luck, Commanders!
