Games workshops Narrative events


Nov 12, 2022
Hi, does anyone know if there’s a list of narrative 40k events that have happened over the years?

I don’t mean these LARP events that seem to be what google thinks I mean with every permutation of the above question. What I’m looking for are the events run by GW like recently with the release of Leviathan “battle for baal” Or the Battle for Armagedon that was done back in 96ish? When I used to play.

I presume that most major changes to 40k have had one of these month long events across all the stores and I’d like to go through them one by one both to catch up with lore and maybe play a few of these games at home
i've heard of narrative events at cons like NOVA and GenCon because some podcasts mention them (like 40k Badcast). Or do you mean the "global events" run specifically by GW where everyone plays games, reports the outcome, and GW compiles them all together to see what happened? I recall there were a couple of those. I kinda remember the Battle for Armagedon, and i think there was one with the 13th Black Crusade? But i haven't been very into 40k since somewhere around 3rd edition...
That’s exactly what I’m after Punktaku, I’ll look for 13th Black Crusade. Its quite hard catching up with the hobby after 15+ years. I’m trying to see what happened, I pretty much know 2nd edition, my group started 3rd but tailed off, as twentysomthing life of booze n girls, houses, Xbox’s took over. Now I am getting back(ish) into it I’m interested in what mechanics GW have changed between editions and what developed in the narrative. I can find a lot on gameplay changes and an overview of whats happened with cadia falling, the great rift, primaris marines, indominus crusade. I’d like to see how it developed and how it was handled. I see there was a load of Arc’s of omen campaign books, are they just background stuff or do they have missions to play yourself🤷‍♂️
Psychic Awakening was a couple years back. I think that led to the Great Rift? I dunno.

as for Arcs of Omen, that’s a new one to me.
