Kill Team


KILL TEAM RULES

GW has announced revised Kill Team rules for Warhammer 40K.  What is Kill Team?  It is a skirmish level version of Warhammer 40K, using small squads of individually moved models to create a more "cinematic" feel to the action.  It's perfect for beginners to the game or people starting a new army!

Kill Team is characterized by the following restrictions:

1.  Maximum of 200 points per side.

2. Side can only consist of 0-2 Troops units, 0-1 Elites unit, and/or 0-1 Fast Attack Unit.

3. No models with 3+ wounds or hull points, no vehicles with more than 33 combined hull points, no flyers, no models with 2+ armor save.

4. At least four non vehicle models.  One of these will be your leader.  The other three will be your specialists, each with special rules to give them flavor.

5. Each model acts as its own unit.

I decided to give it a try.

  1. Very nice. I've just started a kill team of loyalist World Eaters that survived Isstvan 3. I'm only making 10 models so I can add loads of character and details to the team.
