June 2022 Warhammer 40k Dataslate Shakes Up The Meta

June 2022 Dataslate

The biggest update to Warhammer 40k has arrived, the June 2022 Dataslate has arrived. This update brings a host of changes to armies across the board. Some armies have received massive boosts and others have been balanced down. Let’s take a quick look at some of the biggest changes.

Adeptus Custodes June Dataslate 2022

Adeptus Custodes

Adeptus Custodes got a slight boost with the strat cost change going away.

Death Guard

Death Guard vehicles got a huge buff with armor of contempt being added to them and now scions don’t break the “Hammer of the Emperor Ability”.

Aeldar June Dataslate 2022


Hail of doom doesn’t get a secondary ability for their craft world selection. Fire and fade was a huge nerf for being once per game. Eldritch storm nerfed.

Harlequins June 2022 Dataslate Update


Harlequins both top faction selections hit hard and they’re dominance in the meta will likely wain.

Tyranids June 2022 Dataslate Update


One of the cool things about Tyranids is their adaptive biology. Before the game starts you could swap out their abilities. Meaning you could counter your opponents army strategically. That’s gone now.

Tyrants needing to be the Warlord now means you’re required to take tyrant guard because if you lose your Hive Tyrant you no longer get imperatives based on the rules change.

Tyranids can’t swap out their adaptive traits which means list building is less flexible for them as well.

June Dataslate Final Thoughts

This is a really big change to a lot of armies and it will be really interesting to see how things pan out in tournaments in the coming months.

We’ll be discussing this huge change to the Dataslate in our Facebook group Game Talk for Gamers.
