GW has revealed a lot of new information about their new iteration of Kill Team on the Warhammer Community page.

The boxed set:

Kill-Team-box-set-Infographic1.thumb.jpg.99dbe28028aadad4abcb04868b567209.jpg

 

Whoo Genestealer Cult!

 

Main points from the article:

- Approximately 5-10 minis per team.

- Similar but different to 8th edition 40K, including an alternating activation system.

- Designed for matched play (tournaments), narrative play (campaigns), and open play (throw down some minis and go for broke).

- Progression in campaigns involves skill trees.

- To be expanded by Killzone sets (with a new board, terrain, and rules to represent a particular warzone) and Kill Team starter sets (with a squad of guys, a terrain kit and relevant faction-specific rules).

- The previously teased Rogue Trader will be an expansion for this game.

- This will be replacing Shadow War: Armageddon.

 

Personally I'm pretty hyped for this. A 22"x30" board is very portable, the terrain looks ace, it's by the same rules team who did Shadespire, and having Genestealer Cult in the box makes me think there'll be a GC codex release to coincide with it.

looks good. But after shadow war, and Necromunda I'm not touching this unless it's being played locally 6 months post launch.

<--- in same boat , most win and get better lose and , well , lose systems have a few good/lucky players jump out ahead and the rest drift out... usually in about a month or so ...

 

 The mention of tournament play dose suggest a balanced game but with a very small model count ... looking forward to how this one turns out.

Not interested in the game, but I am going to keep an eye on what minis they do for it.

 

Hopefully they'll do more stuff like that lovely Rogue Trader set, and less using it as an excuse to repackage old minis they're trying to shift.

They made a Rogue Trader set? Was it limited edition or something? I can't find anything about it....

I can see why they'd use existing kits.

Itmakes it an easier segue into full 40K; Genestealer Cult, Space Wolves and Orks are among the first factions being released for KT and are the next codex releases for 40K; and it's probably also a way of keeping the cost of the boxed set down with all of the new terrain that's going into it.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Rogue Trader set comes with a terrain setup more like Necromunda, representing the interior of a Rogue Trader's ship, rather than a full 3D kit.

That is what the preview shows. 3d doors, 3d captain chair, big space pirate treasure chests, escape pod, engineering thing, and a flat ship map.

I'm curious as to how this will pan out, and I do hope for it's success...  But two things come to mind as potentially worrysome...  The price (they've been steadily increasing the cost of the starter sets, Necromunda for example is $150 CAD, while Blood Bowl is a lot easier to buy into at $119...  And I won't comment on the cost for full on 40k starters now!), and a worry they might try and do the same kind of segmentation that they did with Necromunda (aka to get all the rules it's what, six different purchases?). 

 

 

 

I also am sorely wishing for Mordheim to come back.  That, paired with good plastic terrain (since the cardboard terrain in the original didn't always wear so well) is something I know I'd pay somewhat decent cash for...  Probably the same for Kill Team actually, since it looks interesting...

I'm guessing it'll probably cost around the same as Necromunda, despite having the terrain that Necromunda didn't have, because they're using existing kits for the teams.

If they included all-new kits in the box I'd expect it to be considerably more expensive, just like if they included this kind of terrain on the Necromunda box.
